Sony has announced two new wireless home speakers – the SRS-RA5000 and SRS-RA3000 – for a premium, seamless listening experience enjoyable anywhere in the home. Equipped with Sony’s unique spatial sound technologies these speakers create ambient room-filling sound.
Both new speakers are designed to deliver a high quality and premium 2-channel audio experience that fits perfectly into any home.
In addition, the RA5000 and RA3000 offer ambient room-filling sound, thanks to Sony’s unique spatial sound technologies. Based on Immersive Audio Enhancement and 360 Reality Audio technologies, the RA5000 and RA3000 fill your space with relaxing sound both vertically and horizontally to create a broad and wide sweet spot. 360 Reality Audio tracks, that can be enjoyed through compatible music streaming services, incorporate three-dimensional sound location data which means they can deliver the ultimate all-encompassing sound when played on the RA5000 or RA3000. Immersive Audio Enhancement, a unique algorithm from Sony, can transform any 2-channel stereo tracks to fill the room with sound and further enhance the listening experience.
The RA5000 is also Hi-Res Audio certified, for superior sound quality through High-Resolution Audio playback. The RA5000 features a trio of up-firing speakers that spread music vertically, while the three middle sited speakers spread sound horizontally. The speaker unit incorporates high-magnetism neodymium magnets and a mica reinforced cellular diaphragm that gives strength to the speaker whilst maintaining a compact size. These are complemented by a subwoofer which helps to flood the room with rich, deep bass. The RA5000 retains expressiveness from bass range notes to high range notes.
The RA3000 achieves omnidirectional sound with deep bass by using a full range speaker, an omni-diffuser that spreads sound throughout the room in every direction and a dual passive radiator to produce deep bass. The speaker’s overlapping beam tweeters form a wave front that goes upward, which delivers sound vertically. This creates a truly immersive experience.
Both models will be available from February 2021.
