Winner - The Best Sound Bars of 2020

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.

Very Impressed
We had been looking into different, smaller home theater options for a few months. I had read and heard great things about Sonos, especially the Beam. As we are stuck in the house now, I decided to treat the family and order one. We have not been disappointed. Setup is so easy and interfaced with our older TV just fine. The sound that is generated from this "small" unit is just amazing, especially the ability to put out the lower "bass" sound. Without having a separate subwoofer I thought that experience would be lacking but it has been impressive. The Beam has totally enhanced not only our movie experience but even mundane TV shows. I cannot wait to expand and add the subwoofer and some satellite speakers. It will go for great to outstanding!

This completes my listening experience
I’ve only had it for a couple of days. The whole set up sounds crisp and clear. Could not have asked for better.
I’ll eventually work our mounting this to the tv unit but I like the bass to hit the floor!
It’s a good clean looking unit, not too flashy, easy to set up.

How many channels does sonos have 2.1 3.1 4.1 or 5.1 ?
Barton E on Aug 15, 2019
  The Beam is essentially a 3 channel, 5 driver speaker. It can be expanded by adding the SUB and also rear speakers (ONE, PLAY:1, or PLAY:5).
Where is this made?
A shopper on Dec 11, 2019
  Thanks for your question. Sonos is designed and engineered in the USA and manufactured in China.
What is the purpose of the One Voice-Controlled Wireless Smart Speaker Gen 2 with the Soundbar?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2019
  Thank you for the inquiry.
Voice control is a relatively new technology. Amazon developed Alexa and Google developed Google Assistant. They operate by voice recognition and can control other devices that communicate wirelessly on your homes wireless (WiFi) network. They can access the internet to provide answer questions you may ask of them. Ask Alexa: What is the weather and temperature today? Alexa will answer something like: Clear skys and temperature in the 80S
It can access your music files on your networked computer. Alexa, play Frank Sinatra. Or play NPR in the kitchen. It allows access and control of smart devices like lighting, thermostat, security cameras via voice control as opposed to picking up a wireless remote control and, for example, change the TV channel.
It is technology that allows control of many smart devices in a home.
Voice control is not required to use your Sonos product.
