With optional rear speakers from Sony
Our revolutionary 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology with Sony's rear speakers creates multiple phantom speakers from just a soundbar and rear speakers. With multiple phantom speakers all around you arranged in the optimal sound field for your space, it’s a new sensation of sound. Experience all the drama of Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X®, and hear every breath, step, and word like you’re inside the film.
With optional rear speakers from Sony
A wide listening area fills every part of your living space so your family and friends get the same sound experience. The listening area is not limited to the front of the TV but encompasses a much wider space.
There’s no need to precisely place the optional speakers. The soundbar with built-in microphones does it all for you, intelligently measuring the position of each speaker, and optimising sound to your room. The soundbar lets you enjoy Sound Field Optimization with optional speakers. Activate the simple calibration process during initial setup or from the home menu.
The HT-A3000 has 3.1 channels: three front speakers, including a centre speaker for clear dialogue, plus a built-in dual subwoofer for deep bass. With Vertical Surround Engine and S-Force PRO Front Surround, it creates virtual surround sound that comes from all around you so you can fully enjoy the thrill of Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X®.
Thanks to Sony’s virtual surround technology, the soundbar can position sound in vertical space – so you can experience 3D audio without the need for in-ceiling or up-firing speakers. As well as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, Vertical Surround Engine lends a more realistic, multi-dimensional sound to other formats too.
Using front speakers only, Sony’s unique digital sound field processing technology virtually reproduces the surround sound field, with audio coming at you from both sides. You can enjoy rich, cinematic surround sound without cluttering your living space.
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.
The built-in dual subwoofer and front speakers feature an X-Balanced Speaker Unit. The unique rectangular shape of these speakers maximises the diaphragm area for more punchy bass. It also reduces driver excursion while maintaining sound pressure, resulting in less distortion and greater vocal clarity.
The deeper the bass sound, the more the speaker diaphragm moves. This can cause an effect called phase modulation distortion when a full-range diaphragm needs to simultaneously reproduce higher frequencies. Sony’s unique signal processing technology compensates for this effect for clearer dialogue and more localised sound. The improvements in the modulated waveform enhance clarity and help prevent vocal distortion.
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).
Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognising instrumentation, musical genres, and individual elements of each song, such as vocals or interludes, it restores the high-range sound lost in compression for a richer, more complete listening experience.

Paired with BRAVIA™ TVs, the HT-A3000 brings you an immersive audio-visual experience with our best picture and sound quality. It’s the perfect soundbar for BRAVIA TVs.
When connected to a BRAVIA TV with Acoustic Center Sync, both the soundbar and the TV become the centre speaker in your home cinema system. Furthermore, connecting the soundbar with optional wireless rear speakers, the TV speaker plays the centre channel role with your soundbar as part of the 360 Spatial Sound Mapping setup. This enables sound to precisely match what's on the screen for clearer dialogue and a more immersive experience.
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.
