Audio company Sonos began developing the Era 300 spatial audio speaker after Dolby released its groundbreaking Atmos immersive audio format. “The brief to the team was: ‘How do you create one product that makes you feel like there are seven or eight speakers in the room?’” says CEO Patrick Spence. The result is the amazing Era 300, a single speaker that sounds like a full system. Almost every part, from tweeters to waveguides, was built afresh for the speaker. Spence says it’s already in every Universal Music studio, where it’s used to test Dolby Atmos track mixes.
