Wide-Dispersion Super Tweeter

The super tweeter in the SS-CS5 is designed to deliver a high-frequency audio response of up to 50 kHz for high-resolution listening with wide directionality.

Tweeter Design

Each SS-CS5 features a tweeter with high sound pressure, achieved through a variety of weight reduction techniques, including the integration of a powerful magnetic circuit and a light CCAW (copper-clad aluminum wire) in the voice coil.

Mica-Reinforced Drivers

The SS-CS5 incorporates a 5" woofer in an effort to deliver deep and stable bass reproduction. Utilizing a foamed mica-cellular diaphragm, it is designed to produce powerful sound with fine sonic details.

Bass Reflex Design

The bass reflex duct, positioned at the rear of each speaker, is designed to suppress unwanted noise and improve low-frequency sound reproduction.

Additional Features

  • Air-core inductors in the tweeters, a silicon steel plate in the woofer, and high quality film condensers
  • Wood speaker design with removable speaker grille
  • Tapered faceplate edges
  • Screw type speaker terminals

Sony SS-CS5 Reviews

Can’t believe the sound

My Bose 301s were starting to have issues after 25 years and I read reviews about Sony’s SS-CS5s and felt for the price I would try them until i could afford to replace my Bose. Note: I only use these for listening to music, vinyls,CDs, and purchased downloads. Received these for Christmas and hooked them up while I repaired my Bose. They sounded great for what I was using them for, music in my painting studio. (20’x25’ room) I fixed my Bose and decided to hook them up to my receiver. Then I compared each using the A-B speaker selector. They sounded almost identical. Sony’s bass was better than the Bose and had a smaller footprint. Now I’m using all 4 speakers in the 4 corners of the studio. I have sound everywhere and can keep the volume at a level that does not bother others in the house. I’m surprisingly pleased with the sound even at higher levels.

Great value for music and tv

After replacing my 30-year-old Sony Prologic 5.1 Receiver with a new Sony STR DN590 5.2, I felt that my 30-year-old Yamahas needed an upgrade, also. I went online for reviews of several candidates, and the SS-CS5 stood out among the others. I have not been disappointed! Its bass melds with my PSW10, like the proverbial "seamless garment", superior to its predecessors, to produce concert level bass with Eric Clapton's 1988 version of "After Midnight", and the treble and midrange handles both contemporary and vintage female vocals, as from Bond themes. All-in-all, a great speaker!

I'm using these as near-field speakers. They sound really good to me in this desktop application. For the money spent, I have no complaints at all!

Will these speakers pair nicely with my NuForce DDA-120 that has a power output of 50 / 75 Watts at 4 & 8ohm. Thanks.

They should work quite well with the NuForce DDA-120 in a small to medium sized space under 20' x 20' with a 10' ceiling.

question

I want to pair these speakers with my NuForce DDA-120 integrated amp which can output 50 Watts / 75 Watts at 4ohm and 8ohm. Will they becwork correctly?
Asked by: Anonymous
The speakers are very sensitive and the wattage will be satisfactory. However, the impedance is a problem, and there is no agreed upon rule. We cannot advise you to use 6 ohm speakers with an amp that only operates on 4 or 8 ohms.

How do I make these work with an Audio-Technica turntable?
Asked by: L Nicole
Hi L Nicole, thank you for your inquiry. Are you referring to a turntable? If yes, these speakers can be directly connected to your Audio technica turntable if it has a built-in preamp. If it doesn't have an built-on pre amp, please connect the speakers to the speaker output terminals of an amplifier using the speaker cords (not supplied) then connect the amplifier to your turntable. For further assistance, please contact our product support team through this link: https://us.esupport.sony.com/support/s/service?language=en_US. Hope this helps! -Sam
