Excellent system overall.
The sound quality is excellent. The setup is as simple as possible. Tired of speaker wires everywhere? Get this. The single feature that it lacks is the ability to integrate some additional rear surround speakers. This is not a deal breaker, but it would be a welcome addition. If this is possible, like it is in the model replacing it, then the information needs to be made available. It may be possible to facilitate this in the Sony Music Center App, but that is not clear.

Sounds great
This is my 3rd soundbar and I was looking for something that sounded great and you could hear the voices on the tv. This fits the bill. Plenty of inputs, well made, it’s the old story you get what you pay for.

I purchased this product less than a year ago and now it is unusable. Whenever someone talks there is a static backing note. It will randomly cut sound for a few seconds. I've adjusted setting, changed cables and inputs, even tried a different tv (which shouldn't be an issue because I'm using a Sony x900).

Second unit subwoofer crackles
Purchased two. Both units the subwoofer crackles. Seems to be a known issue but have been waiting over a year for a software update.. Take a pass on this one. I bought the most expensive thinking it would be the best. Big mistake.

Need rear speakers ability!! PLEASE!!
For what these cost, there needs to be rear speakers possibilities! This is nuts! It will make Sony even more money - PLEASE!! If I have an STR-DN1080, can I add rear speakers??

Amazing sound quality
This is a serious piece of kit! If you value versatility, rich dynamic sound, and a bass so powerful that it makes the whole building shake, then this is definitely a worthwhile investment. Connects wirelessly to the TV, phone, tablet and computer. It conveniently replaces the need for a hifi and if you have access to online film streaming services, then you will never want to go to the cinema again. I’m extremely pleased with the quality of this sound system and would thoroughly recommend it, although if you have any neighbours, I'm not sure they would agree!

Great features, ok sound, disappointing lifespan
Purchased the flagship of Sony soundbars in January 2018 and for 3 years I was very happy with it until suddenly it stopped working. It would still transmit sound but that is about it. It would take a very long time to power up and to shut down and I could not access the menu with the remote. Hard reset didn't work and the firmware cannot be updated. So I am left with a fairly expensive piece of equipment from Sony that gave me 3 years of service. Very disappointed with this soundbar.

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.
