Product Information

Blockbuster sound.

Upgrade your TV, music, and gaming experiences with this impressively compact and easy-to-use sound bar. Experience precisely balanced sound, including crisp dialogue and solid bass, plus streamlined control with your TV remote, the Sonos app, Apple AirPlay 2, and more. It only takes two cables and a few minutes to get set up, and the forward-facing acoustics make Ray ideal for an enclosed space, like a shelf on your TV stand. Enjoy the flexibility to create the Sonos system you want over time when you add speakers for surround sound and multiroom listening.


  • Experience clearer, more powerful sound than ever before possibly by a small standalone sound bar
  • Dynamic sound that enhances the drama and creates a surprisingly wide soundstage
  • Zero-stress setup with only two cables and help from the Sonos app
  • Stream all of your content from your favorite services over WiFi using the Sonos app, Apple AirPlay2, Spotify Connect, and more

Jam-packed with power

Experience astonishing clarity and fullness from a small standalone sound bar that balances two high-performing tweeters and a pair of meticulously engineered woofers with patented anti-distortion technology.

Crisp dialogue so you can always follow the story

Never miss a word thanks to fine-tuning by leading Hollywood sound engineers and Trueplay software that adapts the sound for the unique acoustics of your space. For even greater clarity, turn on the Speech Enhancement setting in the Sonos app.

Note: Trueplay requires a supported iOS device.

Forward-thinking design for the perfect fit

Neatly tuck the sound bar into your media stand or mount it to the wall. All the acoustic components face forward to minimize interference from nearby surfaces.

Zero-stress setup

Go from unboxing to unbelievable sound in minutes. Just plug in the power cable, connect your TV, and open the Sonos app. It does most of the work for you.

Dynamic sound that enhances the drama

Feel like you're at the center of the story or song with advanced processing that creates a surprisingly wide soundstage and accurately positions elements in the room.

Works with your TV

Connect Ray to virtually any TV with optical output, and use your existing remote to control the sound. 

Stream music too

When the TV is off, play music, podcasts, radio, and audiobooks from all your favorite services over WiFi using the Sonos app, Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, and more. 

Great quality when quiet

Turn on the Night Sound setting in the Sonos app to reduce the intensity of loud effects and keep dialogue clear so you don't disturb anyone else at home. 

Flexibility to expand your sound system

Easily add speakers any time. Feel more immersed with a subwoofer and rear surrounds, and place speakers all around your home for multiroom listening.

Free music on Sonos Radio

Discover free curated playlists, original shows, and thousands of live stations that are ready to stream from the Sonos app as soon as you get set up.

I added the Ray sound bar to my studio tv, works as advertised. I also added the ray to my SL1 for listening to music. Very impressed with the full sound the 2 speakers produce, pleasant surprise. the ease of adding sonos speakers with the Sonos app made this possible.

I definitely, would buy RAY again. Sonos rocks
We had bought a new TV which we found "sound" to just not be loud and clear enough. Our dealer suggested Sonos and our room is not large. We went with RAY and it is perfect.
