    Optimised for speaker position

    There’s no need to precisely place the optional speakers. The soundbar with built-in microphones does it all for you, intelligently measuring the position of each speaker, and optimising sound to your room. The soundbar lets you enjoy Sound Field Optimization with or without optional speakers. Activate the simple calibration process during initial setup or from the home menu.


    Immersive surround sound from a premium soundbar

    The HT-A5000 has 5.1.2 channels: Two up-firing speakers for overhead sound, two beam tweeters and three front speakers for wider surround, plus a built-in dual subwoofer for deep bass. With Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force PRO Front Surround, it creates virtual surround sound that comes from all around you so you can fully enjoy the thrill of Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X®.

    Experience sound from above 

    Thanks to Sony’s virtual surround technology, the soundbar can position sound in vertical space – so you can experience 3D audio without the need for in-ceiling speakers. As well as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, Vertical Surround Engine lends a more realistic, multi-dimensional sound to other formats too.

    Graphic showing how S-Force PRO Front Surround delivers virtual surround sound using front speakers only

    Surround made simple 

    Using front speakers only, Sony’s unique digital sound field processing technology virtually reproduces the surround sound field, with audio coming at you from both sides. You can enjoy rich, cinematic surround sound without cluttering your living space.

    Sound from advanced speakers and a subwoofer

    Powerful speakers work together to deliver clear, wide-ranging sound throughout your room. Two up-firing speakers for overhead sound, two beam tweeters and three front speakers for surround and a subwoofer for rumbling bass.

    X-Balanced Speaker Unit

    The up-firing speakers, built-in dual subwoofer and front speaker feature an X-Balanced Speaker Unit. The unique rectangular shape of these speakers maximises the diaphragm area for more punchy bass. It also reduces driver excursion while maintaining sound pressure, resulting in less distortion and greater vocal clarity.

    Upscale your digital music in real time

    Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognising instrumentation, musical genres, and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.

    1. Voice waveform 2. Bass waveform 3. Modulated waveform

     

    Clearer voice

    The deeper the bass sound, the more the speaker diaphragm moves. This can cause an effect called phase modulation distortion when a full-range diaphragm needs to simultaneously reproduce higher frequencies. Sony's unique signal processing technology compensates for this effect for clearer dialogue and more localized sound. The improvements in the modulated waveform enhance clarity and help prevent vocal distortion.


    Extended bass

    It takes a lot of power to accurately reproduce low bass frequencies and there’s often a risk of distortion (A). To combat this, the HT-A5000 uses Sony’s unique signal processing technology to deliver dynamic extended bass, at any volume level (B).

      Even more immersion with BRAVIA Acoustic Center Sync

      When connected to a BRAVIA TV with Acoustic Center Sync, both the soundbar and the TV become the centre speaker in your home cinema system. Furthermore, connecting the soundbar with optional wireless speakers, the TV speaker plays the centre channel role with your soundbar as part of the 360 Spatial Sound Mapping setup. This enables sound to precisely match what's on the screen for a truly immersive experience.

      If you have a BRAVIA with a multi-position stand, you can change the position of the TV stand and fit the HT-A5000 discreetly beneath the TV for a clean look.

       

      Omnidirectional Block Design

      The HT-A5000 and optional speakers have been designed under a common Omnidirectional Block concept. Its sophisticated rounded edges represent a single solid block providing wide-spreading sound. The combination of rich material textures emphasises an affinity with any living room environment.

      Immersive surround sound from a premium soundbar

      Immersive surround sound from a premium soundbar

      The HT-A5000 has 5.1.2 channels: Two up-firing speakers for overhead sound, two beam tweeters and three front speakers for wider surround, plus a built-in subwoofer for deep bass. With Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force PRO Front Surround, it creates virtual surround sound that comes from all around you so you can fully enjoy the thrill of Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X®.

      Thanks to Sony’s virtual surround technology, the soundbar can position sound in vertical space – so you can experience 3D audio without the need for in-ceiling speakers. As well as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, Vertical Surround Engine lends a more realistic, multi-dimensional sound to other formats too.

      Surround made simple 

      Surround made simple 

      Using front speakers only, Sony’s unique digital sound field processing technology virtually reproduces the surround sound field, with audio coming at you from both sides. You can enjoy rich, cinematic surround sound without cluttering your living space.

      Powerful speakers work together to deliver clear, wide-ranging sound throughout into your room. Two up-firing speakers for overhead sound, two beam tweeters and three front speakers for surround and a subwoofer for rumbling bass.

      Built-in subwoofer

      Delivers high sound pressure for clear, deep bass. This has been achieved by expanding the area of the diaphragm and the size of the subwoofer (X-Balanced Speaker Unit).

      Provide high quality sound with less distortion and high vocal clarity from an X-Balanced Speaker Unit.

      X-Balanced Speaker Unit

      X-Balanced Speaker Unit

      The up-firing speakers, built-in subwoofer and front speaker feature an X-Balanced Speaker Unit. The unique rectangular shape of these speakers maximises the diaphragm area for more punchy bass. It also reduces driver excursion while maintaining sound pressure, resulting in less distortion and greater vocal clarity. 

      Upscale your digital music in real time

      Upscale your digital music in real time

      Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognising instrumentation, musical genres, and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.

      Clearer voice

      Clearer voice

      The deeper the bass sound, the more the speaker diaphragm moves. This can cause an effect called phase modulation distortion when a full-range diaphragm needs to simultaneously reproduce higher frequencies. Sony's unique signal processing technology compensates for this effect for clearer dialogue and more localized sound. The improvements in the modulated waveform enhance clarity and help prevent vocal distortion.

      Extended bass

      Extended bass

      It takes a lot of power to accurately reproduce low bass frequencies and there’s often a risk of distortion (A). To combat this, the HT-A5000 uses Sony’s unique signal processing technology to deliver dynamic extended bass, at any volume level (B).
