Sony SRS-RA5000 review
Test scoreShow Context
- Home speaker
The Sony SRS-RA5000 is the brand’s flagship premium-priced home wireless speaker, featuring Sony’s 360 Reality Audio technology, which claims to provide sound from all angles as if you’re listening in a concert hall. But there’s little point in fancy extras if it doesn’t produce great sound – so we sent it to our test lab to find out if this wireless speaker’s the real deal, or if buying would be an expensive mistake.
