Sony SSCS5 3-Way 3-Driver Bookshelf Speaker System (Pair) - Black
About this deal
Measurements that you are about to see were performed using the Klippel Near-field Scanner (NFS). This is a robotic measurement system that analyzes the speaker all around and is able (using advanced mathematics and dual scan) to subtract room reflections (so where I measure it doesn't matter). It also measures the speaker at close distance ("near-field") which sharply reduces the impact of room noise. Both of these factors enable testing in ordinary rooms yet results that can be more accurate than an anechoic chamber. In a nutshell, the measurements show the actual sound coming out of the speaker independent of the room. Requires external amplifier or receiver: Being passive speakers, they need to be connected to an external amplifier or receiver, which may add to the overall cost and complexity of your setup.
The performance that the Sony SSCS5 has to offer to you is nothing but amazing. This bookshelf speaker works great with other stereo speakers and it does a good job when so. The sound that it produces will expand through the entire room, so you’ll feel like you’re at a concert or in the movie you’re watching.You can conveniently take the grill out if you want and they also support DTS and Dolby. The dynamic balance technology these speakers come with ensures they work well with your home theatre. Other Things to Consider Price Sony SSCS5
The 0.98-inch soft dome combined with the tweeter and 0.75-inch super tweeter to give you a smooth and extended high-frequency response, allowing for accurate reproduction of vocals and instruments in the treble range. Adequate bass for casual listening As far as speaker brands go, you can be pretty confident in Sony, as they’ve been a reputable player in the audio space for several decades. Price Even on non-vocal recordings, the overall sound was good and full, but the treble was a little rough. Above 4 kHz, there are some peaks and troughs in the response according to this Sony SSCS5 review.
The bottom line is that you get clear vocals but may want to add more bass from a separate subwoofer. Conclusion
The speaker grilles can be attached with grommets (not with magnets), though the SS-CS5 looks decent both with and without them. All in all, there are better-looking speakers out there. Compatibility 4.5Each speaker features a 5.12″ mica reinforced low-frequency driver, which is crafted to deliver a stable bass performance and enhance mid-range sounds. The woofers utilize a mica cellular diaphragm to help maintain their shape and provide a fuller sound with fine-tuned sonic details. However, for impactful bass performance, consider getting a separate subwoofer or spending extra on floor standers. Wide dispersion tweeter design Even cheaper than the SS-CS5, the Polk T15 is ideal if you’re on a tight budget and looking for a speaker that enhances low-end frequencies. However, when it comes to neutrality and immersive soundstage, there’s no match: the Sony is by far superior. The Sony SS-CS5 is designed to be compact, powerful, and transparent. These characteristics are hard to combine in general, let alone budget-friendly speakers! Yet, the SS-CS5 succeeds in offering a professional sonic performance despite its size simply by overlooking aesthetics.
