Sony BDP-S 5000 ES

Televisions.com
19 March 2012
  • Conclusion: 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 extra touch of detail out of many discs.
  • Pros: Excellent HDTV, with 24p support and video controls., HD audio as a bitstream., BD-Live support., HD decoder for analog 7.1-channel audio.
  • Cons: Imperfections in DVD de-interlacing., No decoding of DTS-HD into PCM via HDMI., No MP3 playback.

Sony BDP-S5000ES Blu-ray Player - Benchmark

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
7 September 2009
  • Summary: Overall, the Sony BDP-S5000ES is a solid Blu-ray player. The picture and audio quality are excellent.  The player is responsive and supports BD-Live with a smooth experience.  It's an excellent CD player and generally does do a fine job upscaling your DVD collection with only a few hiccups here and there.  From my perspective, the real challenge for this player is living up to the ES label.  While the BDP-S5000ES is one of the best constructed players I have tested,...

Sony BDP-S5000ES Blu-ray Player

Sound & Vision Magazine
4 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Sony’s Elevated Standard (ES) products have long been at the respected upper end of the company’s product line. I remember Sony’s early ES DVD players were the cat’s meow in terms of solid video performance and features. If you wanted reference-quality DVD playback early on in the format, you wanted an ES player. Now Sony has delivered two ES branded Blu-ray players. For this review, I’m going to look at its new flagship, the BDP-S5000ES.

Sony BDP-S5000ES

What Hi-Fi?
11 February 2010
  • Excerpt: The Sony BDP-S5000ES carries the cheapest price tag in the test (although no player is immune from a price hike given the volatility of the market), yet it doesn't look or feel like an inferior product. Build quality is on a par with the Denon DVD-3800BD, Marantz BD8002 and the Pioneer BDP-LX91.
  • Pros: A joy to use, comprehensive spec, stunning Blu-ray images, fine DVD upscaling, produces a solid, detailed dynamic sound
  • Cons: The far pricier Pioneer just pips it for picture quality

Sony BDP-S5000ES review

Stuff.tv
30 January 2009
  • Summary: Typical: you wait an age for a high-end Blu-ray player to come along, and then two break cover in the space of a month or so. Hot on the heels of Denon’s DVD-3800BD comes this, Sony’s most expensive Blu-ray player yet. Given our current economic nightmare, you’d be forgiven for wondering what’s going on, especially when you can get a Sony BDP-S350 sporting the same brand name and doing much the same job for under £200.

  • Conclusion: Den Vergleich zu seinen Mitbewerbern braucht der Sony BDP-S5000ES nicht zu scheuen. Er ist erstklassig und hochwertig ausgestattet. Durch die massive, in schwarz gehaltene Konstruktion und das schnörkellose Design ist er sofort als kraftvoller Blu-ray-Bolide erkennbar.

Sony BDP-S5000ES en SCD-XA5400ES

6 July 2012
  • Excerpt: (SA)Cd-spelers van Sony uit de ES (Extremely Standard) lijn hebben een naam hoog te houden. Voor deze test heb ik de beschikking over maar liefst twee verschillende exemplaren. Naast de SCD-XA5400ES (SA)Cd-speler heb ik tevens de BDP-S5000ES Blu Ray speler gekregen. Omdat de XA5400ES beschikt over de mogelijkheid DSD signalen digitaal via HDMI te transporteren heeft de importeur ook een STR-DA5400ES receiver meegestuurd.

  • Conclusion: BDP-S5000ES to solidnie wykonany odtwarzacz Blu-ray Sony. Urządzenie uruchamia się szybko - po włączeniu, gotowe jest do pracy zaledwie po kilku sekundach i równie szybko wczytuje płyty Blu-ray.
  • Pros: Referencyjny obraz, Wysokiej jakości brzmienie, Regelacja pracy dekoderów audio HD, Analogowe wyjście 7.1
