Need Rear speakers
I got this set to be compatible with my new Sony 900H TV. The sound quality is good but can be better if we can get the rear speakers - SA-Z9R connected, Actually i also bought them too, but then saw the reviews that it cannot connect with them. :(
Can Sony provide an firmware update to get that fixed, it would be the best thing ever

Hoping to hear a positive reply from Sony

Connectivity Issues
Everything installed by the pros at Best Buy’s Magnolia. Included the 85” Sony tv and I constantly have connectivity issues in which the sound at will not connect and play the sounds from TV. For $6500 between the two components I sure would expect a better experience. Done with Sony for life.

Worked great for about a year, then stopped.
I bought this expensive unit, top of the line from Best Buy. Worked fantastic for about 9 months, then all the sudden, the TV sound would not come out, blue tooth would not pair up, and if it did no sound came out. I was unable to access any menus, the unit didn't perform commands and I was not able to use it again.

Great when working
I bought this about 2 months ago to pair with a new 77” Sony Oled, which is comfortably the best TV I have ever seen. The sound bar has had an intermittent fault of clicking and powering off. I need to get it replaced, when working it is a special experience. Looking forward to swapping for one that works all the time.

The Perfect Sony Soundbar System
The 7.1.2ch Dolby Atmos/DTS:X TM Soundbar with Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Technology HT-ST5000 is one of the best soundbar speakers I have ever purchased, it even supports 4k devices. The soundbar is sibilant, rich, and has a modern look that compliments any room. There are many sound effect options to select from based on your entertainment activity and it is very easy to make a selection, such as music, movies, Clearaudio+, 3D surround, Sports, etc.. I love the input options, such as wireless, I can play music from my phone and any of computers/Laptops that are connected to my home network. I am able to listen to music with the USB option, the Bluetooth option, and the HDMI eArC, all work great. Listening to the same music was a very attractive feature for me. Listening to sound by pairing with headphones and sound effects made this a great buy. The 7.1.2ch Dolby Atmos/DTS:X TM Soundbar with Wi-Fi/Bluetooth technology HT-ST5000 is an impressive soundbar, to say the least. The size and weight are perfect for its location in my home. It is sleek in design and goes well in the living room or any room for that matter. As for functionality, the sound effects option allows you to make a selection based on your desired entertainment I.e. movies, music, sports, etc. More importantly, the sound is vibrant and rich. There is no distortion at all, even at its highest level. Overall, this appears to be one of the best soundbars on the market right now. It is a purchase I am more than satisfied with.

Transformed the sound and fixed sync issues
This was a replacement for 2 previous Sonos soundbars as neither of them would play without creating lip sync issues with the lg tv. The Sony fixed all that, we now not only have perfect sync but the most amazing sound. This thing really comes into play when watching movies when it does actually feel like your at the movies.
The only negative is the menu and operating system should be moved to an app like Sonos it seems such an antiquated way of having to go into menus to change settings.

Which sounds bar is good bose 500 OR sony ht-st5000?
Bhavin P on Nov 23, 2018
  Both soundbars offer great performance for their retail price value. The major difference is the built-in music streaming system of Bose versus the simulated surround effects of the Sony. For home theater applications the multichannel Sony will be best, but if you need a hybrid movie/music system, the Bose is better suited.
