Sonos today announced that Sonos customers will have access to spatial audio on Apple Music starting March 28. The company says it’s Apple Music’s first partner to bring spatial audio into the home.
Spatial audio delivers a multi-dimensional immersive sound experience and is available on the new Sonos Era 300, Arc and Beam (Gen 2). Sonos says Apple Music will put listeners at the center of their music with spatial audio.
“It’s an exciting time in music as spatial audio – and the artist creativity that comes with it – continues to grow,” said Giles Martin, VP of Sound Experience at Sonos, in a press release. “Sonos continues to put its listeners at the forefront of sound innovation, ensuring they have access to transformative experiences like spatial audio with Dolby Atmos through Apple Music, so they can feel more of the content they love.”
The news about Apple Music comes on the same day Sonos announced a pair of speakers. The Era 100 is a $249 stereo system that replaces the popular One speaker in the company’s lineup. The $449 Era 300, on the other hand, is a new entry aimed at bringing the emerging world of spatial audio to the product line. The speaker has six amplifiers directed in different directions to accommodate that sense of sound in three dimensions.
