Sony India’s premium A-series soundbars are getting two new soundbars. The company has launched HT-A5000 and HT-A3000 soundbars in India with prices starting at Rs 83,980. The new soundbars come with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. These soundbars are compatible with devices with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. Both soundbars can be purchased from Amazon.
The new Sony soundbars are in line with the Sony HT-A7000 soundbar that was launched in January this year under the A-series soundbars. These soundbars can be paired with a choice of Sony subwoofers and optional rear speakers. Sony says its latest soundbars have a premium and cutting-edge design that easily blends in with the interior. The two devices come with 360 Spatial Sound Mapping and sound field optimization technology. The HT-A5000 delivers a sound power of 450W, while the HT-A3000 provides a sound power of 240W.
Sony emphasizes that the new soundbars are best suited to the company’s BRAVIA TV range for a cinematic experience. The devices can be connected with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for content streaming.
Sony sells the two soundbars as combo packs along with compatible subwoofers from the company. The HT-A5000 soundbar along with a subwoofer SW5 costs Rs 1,38,980. The HT-A5000 soundbar along with the subwoofer SW3 costs Rs 1,11,980. The HT-A3000 soundbar with subwoofer SW5 costs Rs 1,10,980, while with subwoofer SW3 it costs Rs 83,980. Buyers can also choose to pair the device with optional rear speakers: SA-RS3S, which costs Rs 30,990, or SA-RS5, which costs Rs 47,990.
Amazon is giving under its “Deal of the day” the chance to buy only the HT-A5000 or HT-A3000 soundbar. The HT-A5000 alone (without subwoofers or rear speakers) costs Rs 85,990, while the HT-A3000 costs Rs 57,990. It’s unclear whether this offer to buy just the soundbars will be available on other days or not, but for now, buyers have the chance to buy just these soundbars and pair them with their choice of compatible subwoofers or rear speakers.
