About Sony home theatre

Can Sony home theatre a 5.1 channel sound bar give proper surround sound? This is Sony home theatre sound bar that I have been testing from past 2 weeks. This review is not just unique, hello friends, today I’ll show a proper review of Sony home theatre. This sound bar looks like any other Sony sound bar. On the top is ceramic and in front is metal grill. Same look is carried forward to subwoofer. On the front of subwoofer is piano black finish (premium). It has 3 drivers (2 fronts & 1 centre). Centre driver is imp.

For dialogues Front channels deliver other frequencies. The wired surround channels will be connected to this box which will be wirelessly connected to sound bar. Sound bar must be connected to subwoofer as subwoofer distributes the power in all channels. There is no issue of power distribution. Connectivity options- subwoofer has HDMI ARC (2.0), Optical port, USB, AUX port & Bluetooth 5.0. Audio Formats- it supports Dolby digital & Dolby dual mono but not Atmos. Is this a problem? You’ll understand it later.

It is essential to know placement & setup of this sound bar. Otherwise, its real potential can’t be experienced. If you sit on this couch, then the placement of surround channels must be like this. Subwoofer & sound bar must be placed in the front of couch. Sound bar must be on ear level. Subwoofer can be both on ear level and on ground. From the bird’s eye view, this should be the exact setup for 5.1 sound bars.

This 5.1 effect of Sony can be only understood by an audio test. To solve this, 5 songs of different genres have been recorded and uploaded on the drive whose link is in description. Listen them via earphones or headphones to know how Sony home theatre exactly sounds. Burn-in of S40R was done for 10hrs before recording. 4 professional mics were placed in different directions. The audio was then merged and produced as audio tests. It will give you the separate experience of front, center, surround channels and subwoofer. The surround effect will be audible. Audio was recorded at 75% with maximum bass.

Subwoofer’s max power is bass. 2 things- a movie clip was also recorded to show its performance during a movie.  Check the drive links for the 5 songs & a movie clip. Listen that to check the dialogue delivery of this sound bar. We made this video after testing this sound bar for 60hrs. Use earphones for audio test. Download the links from description to get the exact audio test. The surround effect was less as audio on gets 90% compressed.

I guarantee it gives a good surround effect. Audio Quality- Sony home theatre is exactly like the audio quality that Sony gives. There is a good change. The upper bass is controlled with the proper use of surround channels. Generally, upper bass is more in Sony home theatre but in this sound bar, if surround channels are not placed correctly, then this sound bar can’t be enjoyed. People misunderstand surround channels by believing they produce the same sound as front channels.

Surround channels’ work is to deliver low frequencies and then the good virtual sound effect is produced. A sound bar only produces virtual sound & not proper surround sound. But Sony home theatre produces good virtual surround sound or 5.1 surround effect. Lower bass performs good. There are 2 types of bass- lower bass and upper bass. Lower bass is felt and upper bass sounds bhoomi. This sound bar has both bass but upper bass is controlled which reduces bhoomi sound.

The dialogue clarity is excellent if the surround channels are placed properly. The dialogue clarity increases in ‘night mode’. In night mode, the bass from subwoofer decreases and more power is given to center channel. This boosts the mid frequencies. That’s the beauty of this sound bar. Sound bar produces high frequency and the lower frequency delivered by surround channel also decreases. It was you need for enjoying late night movies. Cons- it lacks HDMI 2.1 eARC port and an HDMI IN port which means no 4K pass-through.

Don’t buy Sony home theatre for classical or old Hindi songs. But should you buy this sound bar? Will you get the surround sound? Absolutely yes! This is one of a beast. It is simply magical. Experience the surround effect from the audio test given in description. It is not cinematic, but you will feel sound from all directions. Room will fill with sound. This is what you need. This is virtual surround sound.

This is a wonderful sound bar if you don’t keep wrong expectations from it. Don’t expect them to perform as front channels. The separation is also audible but it felt more above 70% volume. In the described setup, the separation will not be felt as much as it will be felt above 70% vol. The surround effect will be more on 75%, 80% or 85% vol which completely understandable. On this frequency, all 5.1 channel sound bars perform better on vol above 75%. Keep this in mind.

1 tip & 1 more pro- Use the cinema mode (from remote) to enjoy movies as you feel slightly more surround effect. That is what you need. Sony home theatre sound bar is given to us not by Sony home theatre, but by you. When you buy something from the link given in description, then it helps this channel without changing your price. We gather these bits of help and buy these products to test. We test from 20-60 days before me make such reviews.
