Sony SRS-RA5000 Review
The Sony SRS-RA5000 is one of the first 360 Reality Audio speakers on the market, bringing spatial audio to a compact Bluetooth speaker form factor. The speaker can turn your living room into a concert fairground – replete with boomy bass and echo-y vocals – but lacks clarity and tonal balance offered by other high-end Wi-Fi speakers.

One important feature is called Immersive Audio Enhancement (I, which processes 2-channel stereo tracks and renders them in the omnidirectional soundfield. This is intended to simulate the effect of 360 Reality Audio with non-encoded files.
Another cool feature is room calibration. When you initiate this function, the speaker plays a short series of tones, and a built-in microphone picks up the reflections in the room. That information is then used to optimize the speaker’s performance for the acoustic environment. Read More
This is probably the most uniquely-styled wireless speaker I’ve had set up in the office since I owned a B&W Zeppelin a decade ago. Plugging in an auxiliary source or connecting by Bluetooth is straightforward. No problem at all. However, these methods don’t let you take full advantage of the SRS-RA5000’s impressive audio capabilities.
