Sony leverages 360 Reality Audio in new wireless speakers
With the new line-up of wireless speakers released just prior to this northern summer, Sony brings 360 Reality Audio enjoyment into the consumer’s home.
Distinguished by their iconic design, the RA5000 and RA3000 360 Reality Audio speakers are Sony’s first hero products, producing immersive, room-filling sound, “just like a live concert in the user’s home”, according to the manufacturer.
Since the start of this year, 360 Reality Audio content can now be streamed via Amazon Music HD1 on the RA5000 and RA3000 by using Alexa Cast.
Based on 360 Reality Audio and Immersive Audio Enhancement technologies, the RA5000 and RA3000 “fill the space” with impressive sound – both vertically and horizontally – to create a broad and wide sweet spot. 360 Reality Audio tracks, which can be obtained through compatible music streaming services, incorporate three-dimensional sound location data to deliver a 360-degree soundscape.
Immersive Audio Enhancement, a unique algorithm from Sony, can transform any two-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.
Key selling points:
- Omnidirectional sound
- Elegant and simple design
- Compact size and footprint
