In addition to 3D audio formats Dolby Atmos, MPEG-H, and DTS:X, Sennheiser’s AMBEO soundbar (which John Sciacca dubbed “the Mother of All Bars”) now supports Sony’s 360 Reality Audio. This new music experience utilizes Sony’s object-based 360 Spatial Sound technology to place individual sounds in a spherical soundfield. Music created in 360 Reality Audio can be enjoyed through compatible streaming services.
360 Reality Audio is a new music experience that uses Sony’s object-based 360 Spatial Sound technology. Individual sounds such as vocals, chorus, piano, guitar, bass, and even sounds of a live audience can be placed in a 360 spherical soundfield, giving artists and creators a new way to express their creativity. Listeners can be immersed in a field of sound exactly as intended by artists and creators, while music content created in this new format can be conveniently played back through compatible music streaming services.
With the latest firmware update, AMBEO Soundbar customers can access 360 Reality Audio content via Google Chromecast, allowing them to stream music in 3D without any additional devices. Currently, live music streaming provider nugs.net offers 360 Reality Audio via Chromecast, with additional services and content expected to follow.
