Sony BDP-S5000ES review

 

The Sony BDP-S5000ES produces one of the finest Blu-ray images money can buy and it sounds fabulous to boot

A joy to use ; comprehensive spec ; stunning Blu-ray images ; fine DVD upscaling ; produces a solid, detailed dynamic sound

The far pricier Pioneer just pips it for picture quality

Here’s a player that’s easy to live with, priced favourably and a real stunner with movies and music

Sony BDP-S5000ES review

 

Sony's new top-end BDP-S5000ES packs every feature the company can think of in a bid for Blu-ray stardom

Too good to use with a 32in TV, but in the right system this Sony is simply extraordinary

Sony BDP-S5000ES

 

The Sony BDP-S5000ES Blu-ray player is large and feature-packed. Unfortunately it is very expensive.

Excellent Blu-ray image quality, quiet operation, ready for rack setup, very good DVD upscaling, 7.1-channel analog output

Very expensive, large and heavy

The Sony BDP-S5000ES is a quiet and fully featured Blu-ray player that has excellent picture quality and the ports needed for an A/V rack setup. Unfortunately this isn't enough to justify the very high price tag.

Great audio and video playback for your Blu-ray movies and the 5 year parts and labor warranty make the S5000ES an attractive player for the home theater, though the value for money is somewhat lacking given you can achieve relatively identical...

Sony BDP-S5000ES

 

The Sony BDP-S5000ES is a premium Blu-ray player, which features impressive build quality and audio performance, but if video is what you crave there are cheaper options.

Bullet-proof ; Class-leading audio ; Impressive video detail and colour reproduction

Lack of network or USB playback ; PS3 matches it for video performance

All in all, we like the Sony BDP-S5000ES quite a lot. It's classy to look at, use and watch. While it may miss the big features like network streaming, it does have some little touches that make you think "hmm, that's cool". Such as when you press stop...

Sony BDP-S 5000 ES

 

Excellent HDTV, with 24p support and video controls., HD audio as a bitstream., BD-Live support., HD decoder for analog 7.1-channel audio.

Imperfections in DVD de-interlacing., No decoding of DTS-HD into PCM via HDMI., No MP3 playback.

The BDP-S 5000 ES is an impressive, high-end device - only the DVD playback leaves room for improvement. The Blu-ray picture quality nears perfection, and the analog CD sound falls nothing short of superb. Versatile image-enhancement options tease an...

Sony BDP-S5000ES Blu-ray Player

 

With the BDP-S5000ES, Sony certainly didn't skimp on build quality. The body has a very sophisticated look and feel, with a machined front face and gold-plated reinforced connectors on the back. All connectors have a solid feel—they aren't the cheap...
