Sony SRS-RA3000 delivers immersive audio


Sony's SRS-RA3000 home speaker uses the company's "unique spatial sound technologies" to "fill your room with your favourite background music."

The SRS-RA3000 spreads sound vertically as well as horizontally, using Sony's Immersive Audio Enhancement to transform stereo tracks, or 360 Reality Audio playback for such content from services including Tidal, 360 by Deezer and

According to Sony, approximately 4,000 songs are currently available in 360 Reality Audio, including tracks from Alicia Keys, Lil Nas X, Megan Thee Stallion, Noah Cyrus, and Zara Larsson.

A free 360 Reality Audio service trial coupon is offered with the SRS-RA3000, and Sony Australia has confirmed it is valid here.

The SRS-RA3000 automatically calibrates itself to its surroundings whenever it is moved to a new location. It also compensates for louder or quieter tracks to save you adjusting the volume.

The speaker can be paired with a smartphone, laptop, tablet or some TVs via Bluetooth, connected to a Wi-Fi network for streaming (with Spotify Connect and Chromecast compatibility), or plugged into an analogue audio source.

The $449 SRS-RA3000 will be available in Australia from mid-February 2021.
