Innovative technology for Sound Field Optimization
Optimized for speaker position

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 optimizing 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.

Immersive surround sound from a soundbar

The HT-A3000 has 3.1 channels: three front speakers, including a center speaker for clear dialog, 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®.

Experience sound from above

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, multidimensional sound to other formats too.

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 dialog 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.

Clearer voice

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 dialog and more localized sound. The improvements in the modulated waveform enhance clarity and help prevent vocal distortion.

Extended bass 

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

Using Edge-AI (Artificial Intelligence), DSEE Extreme™ (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) upscales compressed digital music files in real time. Dynamically recognizing 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.

Get a fuller, richer sound with a wireless subwoofer and rear speakers

An optional wireless subwoofer allows a built-in dual subwoofer in the soundbar to handle bass and vocals with the optional wireless subwoofer focusing on low-range sound. For even more cinematic thrills with sound directly behind you, add our optional wireless rear speakers. 

Best with Sony TVs

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.

Even more immersion with BRAVIA Acoustic Center Sync

When connected to a BRAVIA TV with Acoustic Center Sync, both the soundbar and the TV become the center speaker in your home theater system. Furthermore, connecting the soundbar with optional wireless rear speakers, the TV speaker plays the center 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 dialog and a more immersive experience.

Sound perfectly matches action

With Acoustic Center Sync, you'll hear dialog from exactly where the character is standing in the scene. Action and sound are precisely aligned so your viewing becomes much more immersive.
