  • 1Description

Enhance your TV's audio with the Sony HT-NT5 400W 2.1-Channel Soundbar System. Along with the included wireless subwoofer, its ability to decode Dolby Digital and DTS is designed to enhance the quality of your sound compared to your TV speakers alone.

The soundbar features Bluetooth with NFC for pairing with your compatible smart device and wirelessly streaming your audio content. Its wired connections include three HDMI inputs, an optical input, and a USB port for media playback from suitable drives. The HDMI output is ARC-compatible, so you can hear TV-based audio from built-in apps like Netflix and YouTube. The soundbar includes a wall mount bracket and an IR remote control.

High-Resolution Audio for Enhanced Sound
By capturing music at a higher rate than CD, increasing both audio samples per second and the bit-rate accuracy of each sample, High-Resolution Audio offers an enhanced rendition of an artist's music.
Direct Stream Digital (DSD) Playback for High-Resolution Audio
Enjoy studio-quality sound, thanks to the Direct Stream Digital (DSD) audio codec, designed specifically for High-Resolution Audio. This 1-bit format utilizes a stream of high-frequency 1s and 0s to recreate audio waveforms at a higher resolution than conventional codecs. The result is clearer, crisper, High-Resolution Audio quality.
Discrete 6-Channel S-Master HX Amplification
Using a simplified and fully digital signal path, S-Master HX reproduces the subtleties and frequency range of high-resolution formats. Unlike conventional amplifiers, it maintains the digital signal until right before the speaker output, eliminating distortion for High-Resolution Audio.
Cinematic S-Force PRO Front Surround
S-Force PRO Front Surround mimics the way the brain correlates sound sources to create proper volume, time lag, and sound wave spectrum using only left and right speaker channels. By naturally emulating three-dimensional sound fields, you'll be able to enjoy enhanced audio across a wider listening area.
DSEE HX Restores Your Music Files
DSEE HX builds on DSEE technology, upscaling compressed audio files to a level that's closer to High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the subtleties of the original recording that are lost during the compression process, DSEE HX delivers a rich, studio-quality audio experience for all your music.
ClearAudio+ Enriches Your Music
ClearAudio+ is designed to automatically adjust sound settings for an enriching listening experience. By bringing together digital signal processing technologies, ClearAudio+ is able to optimize audio formats to deliver clear sound for all genres of music.
Connect to Your Home Network with DLNA
Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is designed to make it easier to stream and transfer your favorite music, films, and pictures between your DLNA-supported devices including TVs, computers, portable servers, and gaming consoles.
Slim Design for Minimum Intrusion
At only 2.5" tall, the slim soundbar is designed to fit simply in front of your TV without blocking the screen or interfering with IR receivers. Its narrow profile also lends itself well to a number of wall mounting options.
Wireless Subwoofer for Flexible Setup
Add impact to movies with enhanced bass. Position the wireless subwoofer anywhere in the room to enjoy more powerful bass thanks to a bass-reflex port.
Stream Audio to Multiple Rooms with SongPal
Fill your home with the sound of your favorite tracks with multi-room listening. Use the SongPal app to group selected Sony soundbars and speakers together, then stream music from a computer or your home network in multiple rooms.
Unite Your Music with SongPal
Download SongPal for your smartphone or tablet and take control of your music collection. Simply connect over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and you'll have seamless access to all your favorite tracks, whether they're stored on your computer, server, or favorite online music service. The app can also be used to customize sound settings to ensure your preferred tonal quality.
Google Cast Music to Your Speakers
The HT-NT5 has Google Cast built-in, so you can cast your favorite music apps from your personal device to your speakers. Simply tap the cast button in a music app on your Android phone or tablet, iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows laptop, or Chromebook, and select a speaker or group of speakers to get started.
Enhanced Quality Wireless Audio Streaming
LDAC is an audio technology that allows you to enjoy wireless audio via Bluetooth. With LDAC, you can stream music in the equivalent of High-Resolution Audio fidelity for an augmented wireless listening experience.
One-Touch Listening to Play Music Instantly
NFC (Near Field Communication) technology removes the need for wired connections and complex setup sequences. Simply touch your NFC-enabled smartphone or other device to the on-body N-mark and start your music. You can also pair the devices manually in Bluetooth settings.
Bluetooth Streaming for Personal Listening
Stream audio directly from the soundbar to your Bluetooth headphones for convenient wireless listening. Compatible with LDAC and AAC codecs, the HT-NT5 is designed for personal viewing, so you can put your headphones on to enjoy a movie on the big screen without disturbing anyone.
Compatible with HDCP 2.2 Copy Protection
HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) employs encryption techniques to create a secure connection between source and display, preventing the unlicensed copying of copyrighted content.

    Sony HT-NT5 reviews

    HT-NT5 400W 2.1-Channel Soundbar System is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great cdmi sounder Really nice unit. My only small remark would be that it could use a little more power for its size.
    Date published: 2016-08-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again Great sound. Clear voice. Easy set up. Works well with our Sony TV

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive Sound, Build Quality, Nice Look! I added this soundbar to my 1 year old Sony XBR65X900C 4K TV. The set has a great picture but horrible sound. No longer! I waited for the prices to drop and the wait has been worth it! The room size is approx. 25' wide and 20' deep with vaulted ceiling. No problem whatsoever filling the room even at moderate volume. I listen to a mix of Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop, Classical, Country. It all sounds good :) PROS: - Crisp, clear sound across the frequency spectrum - 6.5" woofer more than powerful enough (adjustable level control) - Hi-Res audio supported from multiple sources e.g. DLNA server (LAN), iPhone (portable), Onkyo DP-X1A (Chromecast) - Surround speaker (SRS-ZR5) setup doesn't require a degree. Just measure distance and adjust level by listening to test signal - Mobile app control and software updates thru WiFi or LAN connection - Multi-room control/setup is easy - AC-3 audio is surprisingly immersive. Be sure to adjust surround setup to your room - On-screen display is helpful. The interface is consistent with other Sony products - Perfect aesthetic fit with XBR TV CONS: - Songpal app OK but requires a small learning curve - Surround sound use will disable DLNA, Chromecast, and multi-room use but is easy to turn ON/OFF - No support for MQA audio decoding (boo!). You can still play the files as regular FLAC audio though
