Sony introduces unique spatial sound technologies with latest premium wireless speakers


KUALA LUMPUR: Sony announced the SRS-RA5000 and SRS-RA3000, its latest premium wireless speakers.

Equipped with Sony’s unique spatial sound technologies and packed with smart features, the speakers fill your room with your favorite background music.

The ambient room-filling sound creates a calm atmosphere, perfect for immersing in your favorite music and creating a calm and unobtrusive atmosphere.

Through Sony’s unique spatial sound technologies, the RA5000 and RA3000 recreate the ambient room-filling sound experience.

Unlike most speakers that spread sound horizontally, these speakers spread background music both horizontally (wall-to-wall) and vertically (floor-to-ceiling) with Immersive Audio Enhancement and Sony’s 360 Reality Audio content playback.

The RA5000 and RA3000 provide Immersive Audio Enhancement (IAE) based on Sony’s unique algorithm, transforming 2-channel stereo tracks into ambient room-filling sound.

The 360 Reality Audio tracks provide the best ambient room-filling experience as they incorporate three-dimensional sound location data, allowing the RA5000 and RA3000 to analyse the location data within and optimally allocate the sound to the speaker’s structure effectively, thus delivering true ambient room-filling sound. 360 Reality Audio can be enjoyed through compatible music streaming services.

A free 360 Reality Audio service trial coupon is included when you purchase the RA5000 and RA3000.

Through sound calibration, the RA5000 and RA3000 considers the acoustic conditions of the room and optimises its output to create ambient room-filling sound. Simply hold the Immersive Audio Enhancement button on the RA5000, and it will conduct a detailed sound calibration adjustment for optimum audio performance for the room it is placed in.

The RA3000 provides effortless auto adjustment, which takes place in the background while you are enjoying your favorite tracks. Every time you restart the RA3000 after moving it to a new location in the house, automatic recalibration is activated for optimum audio performance.

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 mica reinforced cellular diaphragm that gives strength to the speaker whilst keeping its compact size.

These are complemented by a subwoofer which helps to flood the room with rich, deep bass. The RA5000 speaker retains the 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.

The RA5000 and RA3000 can be paired via Bluetooth, wi-fi, and one-touch NFC. These speakers are also compatible with Spotify Connect and Chromecast.

The RA5000 and RA3000 is compatible with a Google Assistant-enabled device with Chromecast built-in and Amazon Alexa enabled

The SRS-RA5000 and SRS-RA3000 will be available in Malaysia from February 2021.
