Discover the next level of immersion
Take your entertainment to a new realm of audio immersion. The HT-A5000 Soundbar envelops you in 5.1.2ch surround sound. Be immersed in the scene with action happening above and all around you.
Immersive surround sound from our premium soundbar
The HT-A5000 has 5.1.2 channels and X-Balanced speaker units minimize distortion while the up-firing speakers and beam tweeters fill the room to give an ultra-immersive listening experience. Built-in subwoofers provide an additional boost to low end frequencies. Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force Pro Front Surround creates immersive sound from all around, while Dolby Atmos and DTS:X lend a more realistic, multi-dimensional sound to your content.
Experience sound from above
Thanks to Sony’s virtual surround technology, the soundbar can position sound in vertical space – so you can experience 3D audio without the need for in-ceiling speakers. As well as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, Vertical Surround Engine lends a more realistic, multi-dimensional sound to other formats too.
Surround made simple
Using front speakers only, Sony’s unique digital sound field processing technology virtually reproduces the surround sound field, with audio coming at you from both sides. You can enjoy rich, cinematic surround sound without cluttering your living space.

Sophisticated speaker technology
Sit back and enjoy room-filling acoustics with two up-firing speakers for overhead sound, two beam tweeters and five front speakers for wider surround plus a subwoofer for deep bass.
Reflect sound off the ceiling for immersive overhead audio. Combines with Vertical Surround Engine to give you an even more atmospheric overhead sound experience.
Bounce sound off the side walls and expand surround sound to give you an immersive experience that goes beyond the size of your TV. Combines with S-Force PRO Front Surround for even wider surround sound.
Delivers high sound pressure for clear, deep bass. This has been achieved by expanding the area of the diaphragm and the size of the subwoofer (X-Balanced Speaker Unit).
Provide high quality sound with less distortion and high vocal clearity from an X-Balanced Speaker Unit.
X-Balanced Speaker Unit
The up-firing speakers, built-in subwoofer and front speaker feature an X-Balanced Speaker Unit. The unique rectangular shape of these speakers maximizes the diaphragm area for more punchy bass. It also reduces driver excursion while maintaining sound pressure, resulting in less distortion and greater vocal clarity.
Movies and games feel so real
With 8K, 4K/120 and Dolby Vision video passthrough support, your favorite movies and games are even more thrilling.
Real-time restoration of all your compressed files
Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognizing instrumentation, musical genres, and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.
A = Expanded audio dynamics (Strings and whisper-quiet subtleties)
B = Restored high frequencies (Acoustic and vocal instrument realism)

Enjoy music the way the artists truly intended with High-Resolution Audio for crystal clear precision. Or discover a new way of listening with 360 Reality Audio for a truly immersive live concert or studio session experience. With the HT-A5000, your music comes to life like never before.
Get fuller, richer sound with optional equipment
Two subwoofer choices (SA-SW3 and SA-SW5) and a set of rear speakers (SA-RS3S) are optional equipment designed to help you enhance the immersion of your content. The wireless subwoofer and rear speaker accessories take out any guesswork of connecting, as they automatically pair to the HT-A5000 once they are powered on.

The HT-A5000 with built-in microphones does it all for you, intelligently measuring the position of each speaker, vertically and horizontally, and optimizing sound to your room.

Even more immersion with BRAVIA Acoustic Center Sync
When connected to a BRAVIA TV with Acoustic Center Sync using the supplied cable, both the soundbar and the TV become the center speaker in your home cinema system. This enables sound to precisely match what's on the screen for a truly immersive experience.
Sound perfectly matches action
With Acoustic Center Sync, you'll hear dialogue from exactly where the character is standing in the scene. Action and sound are precisely aligned so your viewing becomes much more immersive.
Effortless control with BRAVIA XR TVs
With an integrated UI, soundbar settings automatically appear on the BRAVIA Quick Setting menu for easy control of sound modes, sound field and volume.
If you have a BRAVIA TV with a multi-position stand, you can change the position of the TV stand and fit the HT-A5000 discreetly beneath the TV for a clean look.
Omnidirectional Block Design
The HT-A5000 and optional speakers have been designed under a common Omnidirectional Block concept. The design of HT-A5000 is a perfect match for the optional speakers. Its sophisticated rounded edges represent a single solid block providing wide-spreading sound. The combination of rich material textures emphasises an affinity with any living room environment.
