As well as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, Vertical Surround Engine lends a more realistic, multi-dimensional sound to other formats too.

So Immersive. So Real.
With the HT-A3000, music comes to life. 360 Reality Audio puts you in the middle of the concert, studio session, or whatever you’re listening to, for a totally immersive experience.
Sound From Advanced Speakers and a Subwoofer
Powerful speakers – three front speakers for surround and a built-in dual subwoofer for rumbling bass – work together to deliver clear, wide-ranging sound throughout your room.
Center Speaker For Clear Dialogue
A dedicated center speaker (1) ensures that voice sounds can be clearly heard, whether it’s quick-fire dialogue in your favorite TV show or whispered lines in a movie. It’s great for music too, ensuring a richly detailed listening experience.
Built-In Dual Subwoofer For Deep Bass Sound
The soundbar has a powerful built-in dual subwoofer (2) in the center – so you can enjoy deep bass sound with minimal equipment cluttering up your living space.
X-Balanced Speaker Unit
The built-in dual subwoofer and front speakers feature an X-Balanced Speaker Unit. The unique rectangular shape of these speakers maximizes the diaphragm area for more punchy bass. It also reduces driver excursion while maintaining sound pressure, resulting in less distortion and greater vocal clarity.
Deeper bass produces more movement from the speaker diaphragm, and because a full-range diaphragm often needs to reproduce higher frequencies simultaneously, phase modulation distortion can occur. Sony has developed unique signal processing technology to compensate for this effect, resulting in crisp, localized dialogue and vocals.
It takes a lot of power to accurately reproduce low bass frequencies and there’s often a risk of distortion (A). To combat this, the soundbar uses Sony’s unique signal processing technology to deliver dynamic extended bass, at any volume level (B).
Upscale Your Digital Music in Real Time
Upscale your compressed digital music files in real time. Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence) uses DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) technology to dynamically recognize instrumentation, musical genres, and individual elements of songs—like vocals and interludes—and restores the high-end range that compression takes away. The result is a richer and more complete listening experience.
Immerse yourself with an upgrade—wireless subwoofers and rear speakers
For enhanced listening, you have options: Our subwoofers (SA-SW3 and SA-SW5) and rear speaker sets (SA-RS3S or SA-RS5) are designed to expand your listening experience—just power them on and they pair automatically with your soundbar.

Sound Perfectly Matches Action
With Acoustic Center Sync, you’ll hear dialogue from exactly where the character is standing in the scene. Action and sound are precisely aligned so your viewing becomes much more immersive.
Omnidirectional Block Design
The HT-A3000 and optional speakers have been designed under a common Omnidirectional Block concept. Its sophisticated rounded edges represent a single solid block providing wide-spreading sound. The combination of rich material textures emphasises an affinity with any living room environment.
