Sony SRS RA3000

GET IT FOR: Rs 29,990
HIGHLIGHT: Top quality sound

There’s no dearth of speakers that offer high volume levels, deeper bass along with voice support. But the issue with most speakers is that the music is literally thrown at high volume on your face and doesn’t cover the entire room. This is what the Sony SRS RA3000 is good at. It’s a wired speaker that is meant to sit on a table in one corner of your room and fill the entire room with ambient music with clear vocals and balanced audio output.

The Sony SRS RA3000 is made to bounce sound from floor to ceiling and provide an immersive 360-degree audio experience. It’s welltuned with the right amount of bass and treble while managing to deliver crisp vocals. There are dual passive radiators for a deeper bass experience while the omni diffuser spreads the audio horizontally around you. Then the boom tweeters are deployed to evenly distribute the audio from floor to ceiling. The advantage of this is you won’t feel irritated while sitting close to the speaker due to high volume and bass. Also, if someone is far away from it the music can be enjoyed pretty much the same way.

The speaker connects wirelessly via Bluetooth and you can also plug with an AUX cable. Also, there’s the Sony Music Center companion app with which you tweak EQ settings and configure Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice control.

You can also connect your home Wi-Fi and stream music directly. This speaker is equipped to control the volume levels on its own so that output for electronic and soft vocals are consistent. You can also connect it to your smart TV.

Using Google Home app, you can pair multiple Sony SRS RA3000 speakers and play different music in different rooms of your house. There’s built-in Chromecast to stream music and podcasts instantly along with support for Spotify Connect.

As for the hardware, there are two 17mm tweeters along with a full-range 80mm speaker and two passive radiators. There’s support for basic SBC, AAC Bluetooth audio codecs only. Also, it’s just ‘humidity proof’ and not water resistant.

The Sony SRS RA3000 adds the perfect ambient music for your room and you may want to flaunt it.
