HT-NT5 Features:

High-Resolution Audio for uncompromising sound

Experience digital music to the fullest with High-Resolution Audio. 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 uncompromised rendition of an artists’ music. Savor every breath and subtle movement for a truly emotional experience.

Direct Stream Digital (DSD) playback for High-Resolution Audio

Enjoy studio-quality sound, thanks to the Direct Stream Digital[FN01] (DSD) audio codec — designed specifically for High-Resolution Audio. This 1-bit format utilizes a stream of very 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

Enjoy the best High-Resolution Audio experience with the S-Master HX digital amplifier. Using a simplified and fully digital signal path, S-Master HX reproduces the subtleties and wide 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, just as the artist intended.

Cinematic S-Force PRO Front Surround

An immersive virtual surround sound experience. 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 rich, high-fidelity audio across a wider listening area.

DSEE HX restores your music files

Go beyond CD quality. DSEE HX builds on our proprietary 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

Unique to Sony, ClearAudio+ automatically adjusts sound settings for an enriching listening experience. By bringing together expertise in digital signal processing technologies, ClearAudio+ is able to optimize audio formats to deliver a consistently clear, high-quality sound, whatever music you’re into.

Connect to your home network with DLNA

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is an industry-wide standard for sharing data over a home network. This makes it easier to stream and transfer your favorite music, films, and pictures between your DLNA-supported devices—including TVs, PCs, portable servers, and gaming consoles.

Ultra-slim design for minimum intrusion

At only 2.5” (6.4cm) tall, the ultra-slim premium finish is designed to fit simply in front of your TV without blocking the screen or interfering with IR receivers. Its sleek profile also lends itself well to a number of wall mounting options.

Wireless subwoofer for flexible setup

Add impact to movies with rich, powerful bass. Position the 15" (38 cm) wireless subwoofer anywhere in the room to enjoy rich, resounding bass with fine low-end detail thanks to a bass-reflex port. The compact, stylish black unit blends in with any décor.

Set your music free with Multi-room listening

Fill your home with the sound of your favorite tracks, thanks to multi-room listening. Use the SongPal app to group selected Sony sound bars and speakers together, then stream music from a PC or your home network in multiple rooms throughout your home. It's the perfect way to enjoy your favorite songs without being tied to one room.
