amazon Sony SRS-D5 reviews
Sony SRS-D5 can meet the demand for music of people who are not too picky about sound quality. If you want to use speakers for entertainment with movies and games, you should buy additional sound card.
The Sony SRS-D5 is one of the latest additions to the lineup for home entertainment. This 2.1-channel speaker has a pretty eye-catching design with a matte black finish and an ergonomic design. The Sony SRS-D5 includes a subwoofer designed for low frequency resonance (Bass Reflex) and two satellite speakers (full range) for a total output power of 40W.
The Sony SRS-D5 also uses a design of two satellite speakers that are tilted backwards at a 15-degree angle, to “direct” the sound to the user’s ears more comfortably. These two satellite speakers are also designed to protect the plastic cover from the black paint is very professional. However, each satellite speaker Sony SRS-D5 size smaller (109 × 203 × 135 mm) compared to the Sony SRS-D8 model, so it also occupied less space. Because the volume control knob, treble and audio processing circuits are “concentrated” on the left speaker, the speaker weight is heavier than the right speaker (610g only). Inside every Sony SRS-D5 satellite speaker is a 60mm full-range speaker with 8ohm impedance.
The Sony SRS-D5’s subwoofer has a fairly large size (193 × 243 × 233 mm) and weighs a mere 2.5 kilograms, with a 115mm speaker impedance of 3.6 ohms. SRS-D5 Speaker Box is also made from Medium-density Fiberboard (MDF) – a pressed wood with a more homogeneous and tight surface texture that promises to regenerate healthy notes. In addition, the entire outer surface of the subwoofer is also covered with a waterproof coating suitable for high humidity environment. The subwoofer is only equipped with a vent beneath the diaphragm, so it looks less boring than the subwoofer of the SRS-D8.

It can be said, Sony SRS-D5 is the version of the 2.1 channel SRS-D8 speakers are “shortened” in terms of power, appearance as well as the input signal audio. This compact speaker system only supports sources powered by 3.5mm audio output (TRS), so users can not combine SRS-D5 with other devices such as DVD players, PS3 or Xbox 360.
The process of connecting component speakers together is quite simple. Two satellite speakers have distinctive distinctive left and right symbols. The length of the conductor between is quite abundant to lay two satellite speakers about 1m apart. However, the adapter cable of the power supply to the speakers is limited, so it is also inconvenient if no power outlet is available near the speaker. Right and subwoofer plugs have the same design as the Ethernet (RJ-45) plugs, so there is good contact but still slightly hardened when removed.
Similar to the SRS-D8, the Sony SRS-D5’s sound quality is not as good as it was when it was released. However, after more than 6 hours running with all sorts of different music, Sony SRS-D5 sound quality is improved and much better. Testers have found that the Sony SRS-D5 satellite speakers can respond well to the 20Hz to 15.5Hz frequency range (similar to the SRS-D8 model). When experimenting with frequencies from 20Hz to 150Hz, the subwoofer only satisfies the frequency ranges from 30Hz to 150Hz.
Test Lab also connects the Sony SRS-D5 to desktops using the integrated Realtek ALC887 soundcard, which is used to test the SRS-D8. Check out some of the more acclaimed basslines like 1-2-3-4-5-6 Bass, THX Sound Bass, THX – Jurassic Lunch (Major Bass), Test Lab found bass notes of this speaker. Quite attractive and not fatigue. However, in the area of the test room is over 40m2, the bass is still not as compact as when listening to the SRS-D8.
From the practical experience, Test Lab found that if not too picky on sound quality, Sony SRS-D5 can meet the demand for music. If you intend to entertain with movies and games, you should buy a separate sound card to get better quality and sound space.
