Surround sound at your fingertips
The HT-A3000 features 3.1 channels and three front speakers including a dedicated center speaker for clear dialogue and a built-in dual subwoofer for deep bass. Coupled with Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force PRO Front Surround, the A3000 creates virtual surround sound that comes from multiple dimensions so you can fully enjoy the thrill of Dolby Atmosand DTS: X.
360 Spatial Sound Mapping
The A3000 gives you access to Sony’s revolutionary 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology when connected to Sony’s wireless rear speakers SA-RS5 and SA-RS3S.
With 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology, you can feel sound from every direction and distance. Sound Field Optimization uses built-in microphones to ingeniously measure the relative height and position of the soundbar and rear speakers. Based on positional information, it then creates multiple phantom speakers by synthesizing sound waves. Thanks to this technology, Sony’s wide spatial sound field fills every part of the room, immersing everyone present.
