Sony India today announced the launch of SRS-RA3000, its latest premium wireless speakers. The RA3000 offers the beauty of Sony’s unique spatial sound technologies packed with smart features. The speakers will fill your room with your favorite background music and is a perfect companion to create a calm and unobtrusive atmosphere.
360 Reality Audio: Supports to play three-dimensional surround sound
Unlike most speakers that spread sound horizontally, the new RA3000 speaker spreads background music both horizontally (wall-to-wall) and vertically (floor-to-ceiling) with Immersive Audio Enhancement and Sony’s 360 Reality Audio content playback. 360 Reality Audio tracks provide the best ambient room-filling experience as they incorporate three-dimensional sound location data, allowing the RA3000 to analyze the location data within and optimally allocate the sound to the speaker’s structure effectively, thus hitting the sweet spot wherever you are in the room and delivering a true enveloping music experience.
Ambient room-filling sound: Whether you’re reading, cooking, working, or catching up with friends, ambient room-filling sound is the perfect accompaniment
The RA3000 recreates the ambient room-filling sound experience like a well-designed café in your home through Sony’s unique spatial sound technologies. The ambient room-filling sound creates a calm, relaxing atmosphere, helping to create the right ambience for chatting with family and friends. It provides Immersive Audio Enhancement (IAE) based on Sony’s unique algorithm, transforming 2-channel stereo tracks into ambient room-filling sound. Whether you are cooking, cleaning, working or catching up with friends, the speaker recreates a soothing atmosphere.
