The SRS-RA5000 will cost approximately ₤500/ EUR599, while the SRS-RA3000 is priced at about ₤280/ EUR359, according to the news release on Sony’s UK website That likewise states both speakers will show up in February 2021, which is a bit earlier than the previous “spring” date we had actually heard in the past, so perhaps there will be different release dates in different areas.

Approximately 4,000 tunes presently support the format, according to Sony.
