Sonos Beam Soundbar Overview

The Sonos Beam is smaller than most other soundbars, really smart, sets up as easy as 1-2-3, looks great, and – like any good soundbar – will make your TV sound 100xs better. And though the Beam is, technically, a soundbar… what Sonos really made is a multi-talented portal designed to listen to humans, obey, and execute any number of exciting possibilities. Control your TV, your shows, your songs – plus any smart home devices – with simple voice commands, thanks to built-in Amazon Alexa (and soon, Google Assistant). The Beam is Apple AirPlay compatible so you can stream music from your iOS device. And oh yeah, the Beam makes your TV and music collection sound great, too, for a lot less than you’d think. Read our take on the Beam here.

TV’s newest star: the Sonos Beam with Amazon Alexa

The Sonos Beam is the second (and most advanced) soundbar from Sonos, and it represents the best of their 3-part mission: great wireless sound,  smart-streaming multi-room audio, and total control over all – by voice or using the Sonos app. The big story here: though technically a soundbar built to make your TV sound significantly better, the Beam has what it takes to control pretty much everything, with two major perks: 1) The Sonos Beam costs about half as much as similarly equipped soundbars, and 2) the Beam is smaller – and much better-looking – than most other soundbars. Plus it’s 1-2-3 easy to set up, plus it plays nicely with other components – there’s a lot to like here.

The Sonos Beam makes your TV sound awesome.

Though the Sonos Beam will play anything – movies, shows, music, radio, podcasts, audiobooks, games, AirPlay, and over 60 music services –  its principal job is about making your TV sound great. Inside, five Class-D digital amps are tuned to make the most of the speaker drivers, which include four full-range woofers for mid to low frequencies, and a Sonos tweeter for making on-screen dialogue crystal clear. (“Hey dad, you can turn off the subtitles now.”) Further, three passive radiators stir the air inside to add warmth, and the net effect is impressive. Sonos has been all about great sounding audio since day 1, and the Beam follows suit.

Fill small to medium-sized rooms with rich audio.

Naturally the smaller-sized Beam performs best in a smaller size room, such as a bedroom, small family room, or den. And you can always beef things a bit up by adding the Sonos wireless SUB for fuller, richer sound.

Sono’s most advanced speaker yet.

Even just out of the box, the Beam is an extraordinarily smart, smart speaker. Amazon Alexa is built-in and on call 24/7 to do your bidding, and she only gets smarter as time goes by. Further, the Beam pairs easily with any remote, and comes with just two cords: one for power and one for the TV.

Like all things Sonos, the Beam can control other speakers in the house, wirelessly, wherever they are. You can issue commands by voice, remote or app… and play different songs in different rooms, raise or lower volume on any speaker, turn components on or off, and so on. And now, with Alexa onboard, possibilities abound, including some that have nothing to do with music or TV — get news and weather updates, turn on the lights in the kitchen, and more.

The Beam is AirPlay compatible, so you can stream music directly from your iPad, iPhone, or Mac. What's more: Google Assistant is coming soon.

HDMI ARC connectivity.

Of note: the TV connection is HDMI-ARC, which is how Sonos gets other components in your system to work together on command, seamlessly, whether individually or as one. Check to see if your TV has HDMI-ARC. If not, the workaround is an optical audio adapter (included) that connects the Sonos Beam to the optical port on your TV. (Though Alexa TV voice commands do not work with the optical adapter.)

Now available.

The Sonos Beam is smaller than most sound bars, attractive in a less-is-more way, and easy to set up and operate. And with Alexa onboard plus the HDMI-ARC connection, the Beam is without question the smartest soundbar on the market today… and great company, too. (Interesting: recently, Alexa rolled out 2,776 new voice skills in one month alone.) Even if you’re just looking for something to make your TV and music sound better, the Sonos Beam does it really well. Of course, should you ever want to use all those smart skills in the future… they’re there.

Good sound!
So far the sound is good, and seems to be better than our 7 year old Bose system. I would recommend!

Sonos Beam
I really like the Sonos Beam. I was able to connect the 2 Sonos One speakers I got last year to create a little surround sound system. Has adequate power for its size and nice sound.

Works well
I like the beam. I added it to an existing system where I was using a few other play 1s and then used this for one of the main TVs and as an audio speaker in a living room. So far so good -- will say that I don't think the sounds is light years better than a play 1 (bass is a bit better, highs/treble not as much of a difference in my opinion), but given it is used as the audio for a TV it is an upgrade. Also can hear a bit more of a left/right stereo.

This turned out to be the best thing ever. I thought it would be not as good as the playbar (which technically it isnt) but it still packs a MAJOR punch. LOVE This thing

Great addition to Sonos
We love our new Sonos beam. Before ordering the beam, we had a play 3 and 2 play 1’s. We were nervous and hopeful that the beam would live up to the Sonos brand and it did not disappoint. The sound is clear and crisp but also has a great amount of bass. The ease of switching it from tv to music and bass is amazing! I also love being able to hear the tv from my play 3 which is located in my kitchen while cooking! Definitely recommend the Sonos Beam!
So small compared to our last sound bar!
Packaging is nice, as always!
