Sony's A3000 mirrorless/dSLR mashup delivers mixed results


While it provides excellent photo quality for its low price, the rest is pretty uninspiring.

With an attractive $400 (or less) price, the ; delivers excellent photo quality for the money.

It's slow, with a poor LCD and only slightly better EVF. Plus Sony doesn't include a charger, which may be an issue for some folks.

If you're just looking for better photo quality than a point-and-shoot on a really tight budget, but not better performance, the Sony Alpha A3000 meets that criterion.

Sony HT-A3000


Paired with Sony's optional wireless rear speakers and subwoofer, the 3.1-channel HT-A3000 delivers exceptional and immersive sound.

Rich, full-bodied, and balanced sound ; Supports Dolby Atmos and DTS:X ; AirPlay 2 and Chromecast ; Support for hi-res LDAC codec

360 Spatial Sound requires optional rear speakers ; Rear speaker power cables are too short ; Just one HDMI connector ; Connecting to Wi-Fi took an extra step

The 3.1-channel Sony HT-A3000 delivers solid Dolby Atmos and DTS:X performance on its own, but it wows when connected to Sony’s optional wireless rear speakers and subwoofers.

The Sony Alpha a3000 combines the Alpha and NEX systems in a new entry-level camera. But is it any good? Find out in our Sony a3000 review video.

Sony HT-A3000 review


Cinematic sound and Dolby Atmos at an affordable price

Clear dialogue ; Solid dynamics ; On-screen menu system

Projection of sound could be better ; Height channels are weak ; Up against tough competition

Sony’s entry-level Dolby Atmos soundbar is a step in the right direction if you want to improve your TV’s sound, but there are better alternatives

Sony HT-A3000 Soundbar Review: An enjoyable experience at a stiff price


The Sony HT-A3000 is a feature-rich soundbar that delivers a theatre-like experience at home at a cost with the right choice of components.

Pros: ; – Solid sound output ; – Good dialogue clarity, punchy bass ; – Modular approach for components is a good idea ; – Easy to set up, 360 Spatial Sound mapping ; – Chromecast, Apple AirPlay 2 and Spotify Connect built-in ; – Dolby Atmos and DTS: X...

– Expensive ; – Only one HDMI port ; – Can drive cost further up for true Dolby Atmos surround sound

The Sony HT-A3000 soundbar launched at Rs 69,990 and can be purchased for Rs 57,990 with a one-year warranty on Amazon India and several offline stores. Mind you, that is the price of the soundbar alone. If you choose to add the SA-SW3 subwoofer, which...

Sony NW-A3000S Walkman (20GB)


Sony won us over with its latest MP3 entry, the 6GB NW-A1000 Walkman, and with the exact same design and features set, the 20GB NW-A3000S Walkman looks set to do the same.

Sony NW-A3000 review


Sony might have been fashionably late for the party but it's definitely walked into a warm reception

Sony NW-A3000


It'd be a slight overstatement to say there was a round of applause when we heard that Sony was going to break the habit of a lifetime and start selling music players that were capable of playing MP3s. But it was certainly greeted as a welcome volte-face.

Its looks are striking and listening to tunes on it really is a joy, but the NW-A3000 is heavy and lacks the user-friendly access to tracks found on its rivals. And despite claiming to be an MP3 player, in reality it's a clunky Atrac player that can...

Sony A3000 camera review


The unfussy A3000 suggests a good entry point for anyone considering their first ever DSLR – or rather ‘SLT' – interchangeable lens camera
