Deezer & Sony team up to experience 360 Reality Audio

Music streaming platform, Deezer, has launched a new ‘360 by Deezer’ cast feature, allowing hi-fi subscribers to play their favourite music in full surround sound from the Deezer platform through Sony’s SRS-RA5000 or RA3000 wireless speakers.

To operate the new feature, users should open the ‘360 by Deezer’ app, select what they want to listen to, and click the ‘cast’ button in the top right hand corner to begin.

Sony’s 360 Reality Audio places independent sound ‘objects’ such as vocals and instruments in a virtual auditorium to create a truly immersive sound experience for the listener.

The ‘360 by Deezer’ app features a growing library of music from various artists, which have all been remastered in the 360 Reality Audio format. Users can also access dedicated 360 editorial playlists in the app’s recommendation page. This will include the new Deezer ‘360 Sessions’ playlist featuring live performances from multiple artists.

Users who do not own Sony’s SRS-RA5000 or RA3000 wireless speakers can still listen to ‘360 by Deezer’ on their regular speakers but only in regular premium sound quality.
