Sony is known as one of the biggest tech giants of Japan and is widely known for their tech such as cameras, gaming consoles, and not to forget their audio peripherals.
They had just announced their two new wireless speakers which is said to come with a number of smart features and comes with their famous spatial sound technology. The Sony SRS-RA5000 and SRS-RA3000 (ah yes, Sony back at it again with the very difficult to remember and weird names) are said to create “ambient room-filling sound”.
The concept behind this is to promote you to relax and feel comfortable with the environment around you.
But what does ambient room-filling sound mean?
Basically, the speaker supports Sony’s 360 Reality Audio Technology which replicates the sound and feel of live music as the speaker spreads background music horizontally and vertically around you. Interestingly enough, the speakers can also be calibrated to different speakers around the house!
Time to rave at home!

Between the two models, the SRS-RA5000 is the top of the range model and comes with three speakers firing upwards, three side speakers and a subwoofer. Only this model will come with NFC for easy pairing and High-Res audio support.
The more affordable SRS-RA3000 meanwhile features a triple-driver layout which consist of two tweeters, two passive radiators and a full range finder.
Sony is way ahead of the game for you here as their SRS-RA3000 has humidity resistance built in so it’s more ideal for those who listen to music in the kitchen while cooking or even for those who love singing in the shower.
The speakers are connected via Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity and you’ll be able to use Spotify Connect or Google Chromecast to stream. It also supports Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant which is widely used in the community.
The speakers will only be available in the Malaysian market in February 2021, local pricing has not been announced but it will roughly be around RM2,729 for the SRS-RA5000 and around RM1,528 for the SRS-RA3000.
The SRS-RA3000 will be available in two colours and the SRS-RA5000 will only have one colour for now.
What do you think? Will you purchase the speakers for yourself? I might do so! Let us know what you think in the comments ^^
