The Sennheiser Ambeo soundbar is one of the best soundbars today and of course the support of 3D audio formats Dolby Audio, DTS: X and MPEG-H. It is the first manufacturer to add support for the Sony 360 Reality Audio format to its soundbar via a firmware update.
The 360 Reality Audio audio format was introduced by the Japanese Sony in 2019, and although it was the first to offer it in its headphones, Sony recently added wireless speakers (SRS-RA5000 and SRS-RA3000) to its offer. However, the technology is also available to other manufacturers, so 360 Reality Audio could now be offered by Sennheiser at its top sound bar.
The 360 Reality Audio format is offered by Sony partners, Dezzer and Tidal streaming audio services; streaming takes place via the built-in ChromeCast sudbar. This surround sound format is intended to create a sound space equivalent to listening live to a live concert in a hall or recording studio. Currently, several thousand songs are offered in the 360 Reality Audio format.
