”A Swiss-army knife of a soundbar that really does it all.” ’Digital Trends’ – Recommended Product.

Stylish soundbar with high quality sound

The Sony HT-A3000 is top brand soundbar with quality audio, features and style to leave its rivals standing. Containing a 3.1 channel speaker system, with built-in subwoofer, you get spacious, dynamic sound, straight out of the box. What’s more, optional rear and sub speakers offer next level surround sound when you’re ready to make the move. Unsurpassed streaming music options and timeless style combine to make this a class all-rounder.

S-Force PRO Front Surround and Vertical Surround Engine for enveloping sound
Using front speakers alone, Sony’s S-Force PRO Front Surround utilises sophisticated digital processing to recreate a surround sound effect. Working in conjunction with this, Vertical Surround Engine pushes the sound upwards, creating a 3D soundfield that optimises Dolby Atmos and DTS:X soundtracks.

Clear vocals
With its dedicated centre speaker unit and Sony’s unique signal processing technology, the HT-A3000 reduces vocal distortion and delivers crisp and clean dialogue that’s easy to hear above the soundtrack and background noise. Dialogue that once sounded mumbled and hard to hear is transformed into intelligible speech. For greater clarity still, connect to a BRAVIA TV with Acoustic Centre Sync (cable supplied) and use the TV’s speakers for vocal enhancement.

Optional wireless surround speakers
For an even more immersive sound, add the optional SA-RS3S or SA-RS5 wireless rear speakers. These further enhance the impression of wrap-around sound, with the two-way speakers firmly pinpointing the special effects all around you, especially when used in conjunction with Sony’s revolutionary 360 Spatial Sound Mapping.

Unique 360 Spatial Sound Mapping Technology, with phantom speakers*
Working in conjunction with optional Sony rear speakers, 360 Sound Mapping produces heightened surround sound effects. Using Sony’s unique signal processing skills, 360 Sound Mapping creates multiple phantom speakers. This gives the impression of more of the sound coming from above and behind you, enveloping you yet further in the action.

*Requires optional Sony SA-RS3S or SA-RS5S rear speakers.

Take the next step, with an optional subwoofer
Although the HT-A3000 features subwoofers built-in, for bass that you can really feel, you can upgrade with the optional SA-SW3 or SA-SW5 sub. These take the bass to completely new level, introducing rumble and thunder to the soundtrack, keeping you on the edge of your seat. Wireless connectivity cuts the clutter.

X-Balanced speakers for optimised sound
Sony’s X-Balanced speaker units differ from regular speakers in their unique, rectangular shape. This shape maximises the cone area, giving more punch per cm2. The design also reduces driver excursion, meaning you get less distortion and greater vocal clarity. Whether you’re playing music or movies, X-Balanced speakers deliver more.

DSEE enhancement and 360 Reality Audio
DSEE Digital Sound Enhancement Engine upscales your existing music to near Hi-Res quality, squeezing out every last drop of detail. For a whole new way of listening, try 360 Reality Audio, for a truly immersive live concert or studio session experience.

Google Chromecast built-in
Chromecast lets you stream music, podcasts and audio apps, including Google Play, at the touch of a button. Having it built-in saves the battery life on your phone as the phone's Bluetooth transmission system isn't used for this purpose. Being able to stream straight from the cloud also gives the best audio quality.

Stream your music with wireless Bluetooth, AirPlay 2 and Wi-Fi
More than just a boost for your TV sound, the Sony HT-A3000 soundbar also makes a handy speaker for your music. Pair with your smartphone, tablet or computer and you'll be able to stream all your stored music and favourite streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music. Networking is further enhanced by Wi-Fi connectivity, including Apple’s AirPlay 2. Wi-Fi lets you stream music from other, networked devices around your home. AirPlay 2 is the ideal wireless music system for streaming from your Apple iOS device, such as iPhone and iPad.

Set up in no time
For ease of use, the Sony HT-A3000 is hard to beat. Simply plug into your TV using the HDMI eARC connection and power on. USB and optical inputs are also on hand for adding your other sources. Sound Field Optimisation uses built-in microphones, automatically measuring the room’s dimensions and tailoring the sound to suit – all at the touch of a button.

Omnidirectional Block Design
Designed under a common Omnidirectional Block concept, the Sony HT-A3000 complements many other Sony designs, including the optional SA-SW5, SW3 subwoofers and the SA-RS3S, SA-RS5S rear speakers. Smooth lines, rich textures and timeless style set this soundbar apart from the opposition.

Get a stylish boost to your sound, with the Sony HT-A3000.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A3000 sound bar I bought this to complement my new Bravia X-RAY tv and it works so well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nobody really does it better than Sony It's not easy to make the right choice in the crowded sound bar market; the best way is to rely on your instincts and if you're able to, not be afraid to splash out a bit if you want the best. The HT - A3000 has an attractive, sleek design, is easy to set-up and has a clear, crisp sound. I'll almost certainly add some back speakers in due course. Watching TV and listening to music will never be quite the same again. I'm most pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improving TV sound I’ve had the sound bar for two weeks and am pleased o say it’s improved the sound quality on the TV, Before we had it it was very difficult to understand the speech when watching some TV series but now we can understand most spoken word. The music quality is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile sound bar with fabulous sound & features [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve just taken delivery of a Sony HT-A3000 sound bar. This device is full of features, not just for transforming the sound from a TV to a cinema sound effect, but a great device to play back music using various separate devices. It’s a substantial sound bar, as you would imagine for a Sony product, it’s well made & beautifully finished, it’s also quite heavy. It can be wall mounted, it comes with a template for mounting onto a wall or it can be placed on a cabinet as in my case, it’s not too bulky & sits neatly at the base of my 42" television. From a distance all you can see is the speaker grille over the complete width of the device & at the top very discreet control functions. Once it’s switched on, you can see the LED display through the front speaker grill, easy to read & very slick. Setting it up was extremely quick, it comes with an easy to understand ‘set up’ instructions in one language with clear diagrams & text. You have a power lead, HDMI lead to plug into a TV set & a separate centre speaker lead if required. They also provide a detailed handbook for more information, all easy to understand & very comprehensive. If you have a Sony TV with a Bluetooth function, you can connect up wirelessly. I tried it on my mobile phone & within seconds of connecting with Bluetooth, it was playing back playlists from my phone with on screen controls. The HDMI, USB & power sockets are mounted in two separate recesses at the back of the sound bar making connecting & disconnecting when it’s wall mounted, a simple task. A separate remote control device is supplied with multi function controls. There are haptic controls on the top of the sound bar, they all work very well indeed. I’m not a fan of haptic controls, the ones on my car are a ‘hit or miss’ experience but Sony have ‘cracked it’ with these. As you would imagine, sound quality is very impressive. This is one of the best quality sound bars I’ve ever heard, it simply transforms the sound from the TV to cinema like quality. It just fills the room with a deep quality sound, it’s all very impressive indeed, there is the option of adding more speakers to enhance the sound even further. Sound quality from my phone through the sound bar is also impressive, I plugged in a 15 year old Sony USB stick with music on it & was astounded by the sheer quality of the playback sound. By downloading the Sony app, you can set up the sound bar to accept Alexa verbal instructions, connect up to the Spotify app to playback through the sound bar & link up to Air Play if required. It’s all very versatile indeed. To summarise, a well made product, excellent sound quality, versatile, easy to set up & operate, good attention to detail & good value for money. With Sony's reputation for reliability, it's unlikely to cause any issues. It' highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HT-A3000 Sound Mapping Dolby Atmos® Review [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 360 Spatial Sound Mapping Dolby Atmos® is an absolutely stunning bit of kit. Has brilliant: Ease of Set-up Sound quality Bass Surround Capability Its pretty I am not a soundbar kinda guy (more a headphone guy owning both the XM3 and the XM5 sound cancelling headphones). However having the chance to listen to this bit of kit was a bit of a revelation to me. You are able to get the full on surround sound affect that headphones give you without lots of additional speakers, without extra cable and without a complicated set-up. Am I converted? I might well be. As a 50 year old male I'm finding the joy of watching a decent move more appealing and one of the reasons I hadn't done this so much before now was because of the poor quality speakers in the standard TV that you buy. Most soundbars are slim and baseless with little power. And that is something the HT-A3000 corrects. For me, I'd highly recommend this to anyone wanting to start out with a decent soundbar, with very high quality build quality and features galore. You CAN add additional speakers (Sony) and you CAN buy the HT-5000 but for your standard thinking man, this is all you are ever going to need. The long and short is, if you want an 'in' into Soundbar pleasure, buy this product, it might well be the start of your journey but it very well might also be the first and only soundbar that you will ever buy or indeed will ever need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound bar [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Thee product arrived well packaged, all items in the box were well secured. Initial set up was extremely straightforward with the easy to follow guide. The sound bar looks good located on the cabinet in front of the TV, unobtrusive it seems to be part of the set.( See photo ) The improvement in the sound quality from the TV was immediately noticeable, a more mellow resonance with just the right amount of bass as far as I am concerned. Bluetooth pairing with my phone was also stress-free and I appreciate the spotify app being available, the reproduction of the music is stunning in my opinion. I have not used the other apps ( Alexa, Chromecast or 360 Reality Audio) as I don't have the necessary links. I have used the sound bar with a range of TV programmes, films, sports, documentaries, etc,and I have been very pleased with the enhancement the sound bar has made to my viewing. I am very pleased with the product and would highly recommend.it to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fall short [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The HT-A3000 is the entry level for the Sony range of sound bars and sadly for me it is a disappointment. Design and build quality are excellent as is the setup process. The problem I found is that out of the box and connected to my Bravia Tv the sound was not good, my TV does not have the sound centre socket so the sound appears to echo with a touch of sibilance. Switching from the HT-A3000 back to the TV, the sound is more balanced and better to listen too. I used the TV equalizer to change the settings but could not improve the sound. I played a 4k BluRay disc on my Sony player and there was a marked improvement but lacking a sound stage. I consider the HT-A3000 should be sold as a package with rear speakers then the HT-A3000 should perform as it was designed for. When I acquire a pair of rear speakers I will update this review and I am sure I will be more positive, but as a standalone unit it falls short. N.B I posted this review on 26/10/22

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive sound bar , superb build quality [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First impression is of a well engineered sound bar , high quality , and a reassuring weight In the box are all the accessories you will need (1) hdmi cable (2) remote with batteries (3) power cable (4) a cable for Sony Bravia tv (5) user manual and quick start guide The remote though absolutely functional and easy to use , does disappoint , only in so far as the sound bar is beautifully built , and the control feels cheap Setting up , is easy , and the instruction manual is well written to take you through this. Further set up is via the tv screen and menu instructions. I was very impressed that the sound bar would function as an Alexa speaker , and that the Sony music centre is also available , allowing the sound bar to be used with other storage devices , or tell Alexa to play music through the sound bar Sound quality for tv and films , very good , in fact superb for the bits on films you don’t notice normally Not feel it in your chest loud but very acceptable . Dialogue is clear , and there is a special voice option via the control.playing music through the sound bar is excellent, especially if like me you don’t own an impressive music centre My caveats , my tv is a Sony Bravia 55 AF8 , which I bought as it has the best sound of any tv at the time , with virtual Dolby atmos , as does the sound bar. Watching and especially listening to the tv , I would have it a volume 35 , and fill the room , the sound bar to have the same effect has to be at least at volume 67 To summarise , if you don’t own a truly impressive sound quality tv , with in screen speakers , then I would unreservedly recommend this sound bar , for its performance and quality , if you do own a top end Sony tv , then I don’t feel that it adds a great deal to your tv experience, though it’s other capabilities as a music speaker may be just what you need
