About the Sony SRS-RA5000

Room-filling sound with easy controls

The SRS-RA500 is the bigger brother to the Sony's SRS-RA3000 and it packs a serious punch. It has seven precisely placed speakers inside: a trio of up-firing speakers, three side-firing speakers, and a subwoofer at the bottom. The sound spreads out horizontally and vertically, essentially creating a large musical "bubble." When you're setting the speaker up, you can calibrate it for your room using the internal microphone. It'll play a few test tones and tune the sound for your listening area. It has easy-to-use function and volume touch controls on the side. And it can even adjust the volume automatically for you, keeping those more aggressive tracks at an acceptable volume level.

Envelop yourself in a sphere of music

If you want to take the immersion to the next level, the 'RA5000 also supports Sony's 360 Reality Audio format.

Tracks recorded in this format really put you in the middle of the studio or on the stage with the artist. They have instruments, vocalists, and in some cases the audience "mapped" inside of a 360° sphere by sound engineers. From there, those engineers adjust each band member's distance and angle in relation to the center of the sphere.

If you don't have any 360 Reality Audio tracks, don't worry— you can achieve roughly the same effect by pressing the Immersive Audio Enhancement button. That'll trigger the speaker to process the incoming audio track using a unique Sony algorithm that simulates a 3D soundfield so your regular music sources will still have plenty of depth and three-dimensionality.

Stream away

There's no shortage of ways to get your tunes going. The speaker is Wi-Fi enabled. It supports Chromecast, Spotify® Connect, and Sony's Music Center app. The Music Center app also lets you adjust sound settings, including the EQ. Don't feel like going over Wi-Fi? Pair your device up to the RA5000 over Bluetooth and stream away. Taking that a step further, you can pair it up to a compatible Sony BRAVIA® TV and enjoy enhanced sound with your shows and movies

This Sony speaker works with Amazon Alexa and Google Home for convenient voice control. Add the speaker to a speaker group in the Google Home or Amazon Alexa app and from there, you can use your voice (and voice controller) to get your tunes going.
