The Sony HT-A3000 belongs to the same series as the Sony HT-A7000 and the HT-A5000. The new 3.1-channel soundbar has three front speakers, including a center speaker for clear dialogues. We also find a dual subwoofer built-in for deep bass. The soundbar is equipped with Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force Pro Front Surround. This makes virtual surround sound available in your living room. Consumers can enjoy Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.
The Sony HT-A3000 also features 360 Spatial Sound, something that was only made available later on the top model within the series. For this, the soundbar must be connected to the optional SA-RS5 or SA-RS3S rear speakers. This model is in any case easily expandable, also with the SA-SW5 or the SA-SW3 subwoofer. You have access to music services such as Spotify via Chromecast, Spotify Connect or AirPlay 2. Bluetooth is also supported and you can connect the soundbar to your WiFi network. Voice assistants such as Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are also available.
The Sony HT-A3000 is easy to connect to your TV via HDMI eARC. USB and an optical connection are also available for optimum flexibility in placement.
