"What Hi-Fi? 2021 Award Winner" Product of the Year, Best multi-room systems.

Premium sound
With no fewer than 11 Class-D amps and speakers packed into its sleek lines, the Sonos Arc has the muscle to match the mightiest movies and music. Featuring eight, dedicated woofer units you not only get natural vocals but also class-leading bass and the dynamic punch to bring soundtracks and music to live.

Immersive, ‘arc’ of audio
With three, precisely angled, silk dome tweeters, the Arc spreads the sound widely. Using a left/centre/right configuration, you get a ‘wall of sound’ for enveloping audio.

Adjustable settings
For personalised sound, use the Sonos app to adjust bass, treble and loudness. Speech Enhancement mode optimises vocal clarity – ideal for documentaries and sports commentary. Night Sound reduces the intensity of sound, making it less intrusive for others around your home.

The Trueplay revolution - giving you tailored sound
The Sonos Arc also features revolutionary Trueplay technology. Trueplay scans your room, analyses the results and then fine-tunes the speaker for the ideal listening experience. Whether your room is large or small, densely furnished or minimalist, the Arc adapts to give the most natural and realistic sound possible (iOS device required).

Expand to multi-channel – with Dolby Atmos support
Highly impressive on its own, you can take the Arc to the next level by adding a Sonos Sub and a pair of One SL speakers for incredible 5.1 channel surround sound. As a bonus, because of the wireless mesh system, no speaker cables are required. The latest Sonos surround system now supports Dolby Atmos encoded movies, giving you an even more cinematic sound.

Effortless control – including Sonos S2 and Apple AirPlay 2
Download the latest Sonos S2 app and enjoy the smartest control app to date. With new features, usability updates and more personalisation, the S2 app gives enhancements all-round - both now and for the future. With AirPlay 2 also covered, you can stream directly from your Apple devices or ask Siri to play your favourites from Apple Music throughout your home.

Or use voice control – with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant
Find the right music for every moment on Spotify. Search any artist or song, create and share playlists, and get personalized recommendations. Listen on Sonos and control the music with your voice, the Spotify app or the Sonos app. With four, far-field microphones on board, Arc can hear you – even from the other side of the room. (Spotify Premium account required for full features).

Control much more
Play songs, check news and traffic, manage smart devices and enjoy all those other helpful Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant skills using a single Sonos Arc speaker.

Privacy when you want it
Sonos understands that your privacy is important. For this reason, when the microphone LED is on, Alexa is ready for voice commands. When the light is off, the microphone is off.

Easy setup
Connecting the Arc is easy. Simply connect to the mains then plug in your TV via HDMI. An optical digital input is also standard. For streamlined control, an Infrared sensor syncs with your TV’s remote, giving one-remote convenience.

The Sonos system
Sonos gets better when you add more speakers. Play a movie in your living room, a podcast in the kitchen or the same music across all your Sonos speakers – flexibility is key. The latest Sonos components link via your home Wi-Fi but for very best results, linking one component to an Ethernet connection gives the most stable solution.

Experience premium sound from all your music and movies, with the Sonos Arc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Atmos sound. My 2nd online buy from RS and, once again, it didn't disappoint. I bought the LG CX from them and The Arc to compliment it....Wow ! An amazing combo is all I can say. Not cheap but quality never is. Highly reccomended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound I recently bought an LG OLED TV and decided to add a surround sound system. I chose the Sonos Arc soundbar with Sonos Subwoofer (Gen 3) and two Sonos One (Gen 2) speakers. This really is an excellent sound system which creates a superb sound image. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quality, Sonos has really surprised me. Richer Sounds gave me peace of mind and great advice which is so important when you are spending thousands. I was so happy with the customer service from a lady that helped me i actually miss talking to her as she was so pleasant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound and Easy Set Up I saw and heard this speaker at another store but then found that nobody in Uk seemed to haver any to sell. Phoned Richer and had one inside 48 hours and it is amazing. The speaker arrived in a huge heavy card transport box with the speaker in a rather cleverly designed box inside. Once I worked out how to get inside the box the speaker was found coddled in a made to measure cloth bag. The box also contained one HDMI cable and an adapter allowing limited functionality on a TV with no HDMI Arc connection by using optical. Very basic setup instructions include but read on a they are not needed. I was massively impressed with the sound when I first heard the Arc but was not aware of the SONOS ecosystem but I soon got to love it after setting this speaker up. Stage one was just plug it into my ethernet (could use wi-fi), the mains and the HDMI into the TV. Stage 2 was download and run the SONOS app on my iPhone. There is also an Android app but one small optional feature called Trueplay only works with an iPhone. The app immediately found the speaker and after clicking a couple of questions it was up and running - and sounding great. Finally run the Trueplay option on the app and after a minute of walking around the room waving the phone like an idiot the SONOS works out its environment and sets the speaker up for room size and acoustics. Saves hours of playing with bass, treble and volume controls. I had also ordered a SONOS One speaker for use in the kitchen and that was just as easy to set up and with the SONOS app I could click a button to either send the TV sound to the kitchen as well or run music from Airplay, Amazon, etc. After a few days use I have been really impressed with the audio and although SONOS is right in saying that rear speakers are not essential I decided to finish the job and add a pair of SONOS speakers. I had given up with surround in the past due the problems running cables around our very open plan living room but with SONOS that is not a problem as it just uses my wi-fi. All I needed to do was plug the speakers into a convenient socket and run the app. The speakers were immediately found and after clicking that I want them for surround sound one speaker gave a tone and the app asked if it was the left or right one!! Answered the question, ran Trueplay again (iPhone only app) and everything is set up. Tested it on my favourite movies and really impressed. My TV is a few years old and although it has the minimum requirement of an HDMI Arc socket it is not eArc so will not run the latest surround sound but happily it handles the TV Dolby Digital an the TV seems to pass the surround sound through from my Blueray player and I get good surround from movies on Netflix and Amazon Prime. Control of volume works through the TV remote. I also use a Logitech Harmony entertainment control system. My old Bose speakers had to be set up through it but with the SONOS no set is needed. I just tell Harmony whether I want TV, Blueray, Apple TV or music and the Harmony and TV remote handles volume. I have a rally old iPad that I use for the Harmony app. It will not take the latest Apply updates but the SONOS app works on it OK as well. Finally told the app I use Amazon Echo and relegated my Amazon echo speaker to the bedroom as now I just talk to the Arc speaker. It does everything Echo does only with better sound including controlling all my Smartthings home automation kit and talking to the Harmony system and the Arc. Small example of it all working together. When I tell Alexa on the SONOS to turn on the disc player it tells Harmony to turn on the TV and set the correct HDMI channel and turns on the disc player, The Arc surround is ready to go. Then Smarthtings automatically turns off the main living room lights and dims the wall lights to a good film watching level. Magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and very easy to set up I bought this a few weeks ago and it sounds incredible along with the Sonos Sub. Works well and delivers Dolby Atmos via our LG OLED65C7. Expensive setup but worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing looks and serious sound! Had the Arc sound bar and 2 x One SL’s for a couple of weeks now, after pondering for a while about buying them. Let’s face it, they aren’t cheap! But, I’m completely thrilled, great quality, even the packaging is amazing. Looks are absolutely stunning, and the sound, especially with a Dolby Atmos input from Netflix or Sky Q etc is top notch, I’m blown away. I will be adding more Sonos speakers around the house, as well as a sub to my tv surround system.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pairing to surround speakers will not work Just bought a Sonos Arc, One and One SL. Have spent the whole day trying to get to the Arc to pair with the surround speakers, keep getting the same error message "make sure your products are powered on and connected to WiFi"despite trying every so called fix according to on-line help, user's forums, etc. Telephone support is appalling. After googling, found numerous articles/forums all on about the exact same problem , so at least I know it's not just me. Seems to be a fairly common fault that Sonos are aware of, but have failed to rectify, despite it existing for a considerable amount of time. The whole lot is being returned tomorrow for a full refund, as the system is pointless if it can't pair wirelessly with other speakers. After all, that's the raison d'être of the company's products. If you're going to charge premium prices, then have products that actually work and provide decent customer service. Appalling company, shoddy product. Avoid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Customer Service Fantastic Price Customer Service Manager at Richer-Sounds Windsor & Eton A+++ . The Sonos Arc with the Sub Gen3 and Rear FIVE speakers filled my 80sqm TV room with cinematic sound with Dolby atmos, This is one of the best surround systems i have heard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and aesthetics! Really simple to install using the Sonos wall mount. Yes, it's totally overpriced for a wall mount but fits perfectly. Sound is rich and balanced. It won't tear your house down but it's more than loud enough if you live in a flat like me. Coming from a soundbar with a sub this one feels a bit lacking but I have to say the bass is quite good considering this is just a soundbar. When I looked into purchasing it I compared against similar Atmos enabled soundbars and it felt this one was good value for the money and I after purchasing it it does feel that way. Next upgrade will most probably be getting the Sub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great Bought the sub and surrounds nearly two weeks ago. love the sound it creates when watching movies even though I haven't got EArc which means a TV upgrade jn the near future. Music sounds great also. Easy to set up and easy to use . Very happy, just need to save for that new TV to get the full benefits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service as Usual along with great product Delighted to receive our Sonos Arc, what an amazing system. The packaging is first class and makes you feel like you've purchased something specail. Super easy to unpack and set-up, althought it would be better if the packaging add a quick find and download the app. Sound quality is excellent and the system is the best looking we have ever had, often this quality comes with much bigger less appealing looking speakers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic soundbar Excellent sound with easy setup and very easy to use. App works well and enable the right settings to get you started. would have been 5 stars if connectivity was better. Comes with HDMI IN only so no pass through. also comes with HDMI to optical adapter (only one connection at a time) but this is a very small HDMI to male S-PDIF meaning anyone with an existing S-PDIF lead will either have to purchase a new lead (MALE-FEMALE) or a double female connector socket. This to me seems completely ridiculous as nearly everyone who has S-PDIF will have the standard MALE-MALE type lead. It is just an unwarranted expense that makes looking at alternative sound bars more appealing. If you already have SONOS equipment it is a great add on to your existing kit. If you don't and just want a standalone speaker with fantastic sound and Alexa access then this is great. If you want to connect your existing equipment to this and it isn't SONOS, then you need to be spending A LOT of money on the SONOS port (£399) for every piece of equipment you need to connect or keep changing wires around or just look elsewhere as this wont be what you want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall happy with purchase. Just short of the 55 inch TV and in my room had to raise by adding shelf for height to make it look right. Sound is very good as you would expect for the price, Atmos?? still making my mind up, took a bit of faff to get TV , ALexa and Arc to communicate but all good now. Worst bit is the lip synch delay on Youtube video.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great, needs a lot of improvement in the sound Purchased the ARC from RicherSounds Leicester few weeks ago, There service was great. Now after the Sonos ARC for a few weeks here are my positives and negatives. I have a Sonos beam and have also had a Samsung Q90r. +looks nice and well built +Alexa and goo built in +Sonos app is really good + ease of setup Now the sound quality really is let down with the ARC sounds so tinny and poor quality. The mid range sound is non existent. There is also still a bass issue with the bar of which Sonos did release a fix, but the issue does still happen where the drivers hold back the bass of the bar. if you go to the Sonos community forums there are now many threads with unhappy customers complaining about the sound. I am hoping Sonos get on top of it and release a fix for the issues the bar is having. Yes there have been some good reviews from what hifi etc but do they really test it that well, look at the site rtings they are much more in depth. I am going to bare with the bar for now and see what happens, but many people are returning and getting they playbars back. I have compared it to my beam and yes the ARC has a wider sound stage but the sound quality was much better on the beam.
