”This compact Sonos soundbar could transform your entertainment experience.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 Product of the Year award winner.

Listen to music, TV, movies and more – all from one box

It might look like a simple soundbar, but the Sonos beam does so much more. As well as dramatically improving the sound from your TV, the Sonos music streaming system is well established as one of the best going. With easy access to your own music library plus support for 50 streaming music services, the Beam has all your entertainment needs covered.

Immersive, cinema-quality sound
With four full-range drivers and a tweeter, the Beam gives a seamless sound across the frequency band. The speakers also push the sound wide, giving you a spacious and immersive sound that you wouldn’t credit from such a compact unit. To make sure that action movies have the ‘edge of the seat’ thrill they deserve, three passive radiators give the bass that extra intensity. For the ultimate in surround sound, you can add two extra Sonos speakers as rears, giving you a great immersive experience. Should you require even more bass then simply add the Sonos Sub and treat yourself to a cinematic experience of awesome power!

Easy voice control – just ask Alexa
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 five, far-field microphones on board, Beam 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 skills using a single Sonos Beam speaker.

Now featuring Apple AirPlay 2 for seamless streaming from your Apple device
With AirPlay, stream directly from your Apple devices or ask Siri to play your favorites from Apple Music throughout your home.

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 Beam is easy. Simply connect to the mains then plug in your TV via HDMI. Compared to traditional home cinema systems you don’t just save on boxes and cabling but set-up time, too.

Compact size
At just 651mm wide, the Sonos Beam fits spaces ordinary soundbars won’t go. If you want to fit the speaker inside a cabinet or you use a narrow surface to support your TV, the Beam fits where others don’t. Compact height and depth dimensions also make the Beam unobtrusive and less likely to block the view of your TV.

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 will allow you to take advantage of the famous Sonos 'Mesh' system.

Strength through numbers
The more components you add, the stronger the dedicated wireless mesh becomes. Best of all, because it runs independently from your Wi-Fi, the reliability and strength of the signal is unaffected by Wi-Fi dropouts.

Get the sound your TV and music deserves and enjoy effortless voice control, with the Sonos Beam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Soundbar Recently purchased Sonos Beam which is a fantastic affordable soundbar option to either have in its own or add to your Sonos family. Speedy delivery from Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos - Beam: A big sound from a modest sized unit Sonos are well know for their high quality audio products so I bought this unit with high expectations and I am pleased to say that I was not disappointed. I needed a powerful sound bar to fill a large room but without dominating the 40" wide screen TV that it was going to sit if front of. The Beam sounds fantastic, it is only being used as a stereo speaker but fills the room well without distortion and has ample base resonance for both music and film FX. It is not the cheapest unit on the market but it does deliver an impressive sound. The "clear speech" feature is very useful for older films where the audio track a can sometimes be a little muffled. It was very easy to install and set using a downloaded app' on my iPhone, it was working within 30 minuets of opening the box. The unit I have was ordered online from Richer Sounds on Boxing Day afternoon as there was a significant price reduction on the website when set against the high street price, it arrive less than two days later on 28th December, very impressive service given the time of year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound Bar I've had this for a couple of weeks now and it has performed faultlessly. The inclusion of Alexa and Tunein are a good idea and I have explored many new Radio stations. I haven't got room for a bigger sound bar or a base speaker so this fits the bill very well. The sound quality is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound at an amaxzing price. I have saved and waited to buy this for a year. It was well worth it. It is an amazing speaker with a phenomenal sound at a really reasonable price. Richer sounds are helpful, informative and friendly. They go the extra mile in customer service ******
Date published: 2019-01-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product I wasn't sure about shelling so much cash out for essentially just a sound bar but this is so much more. Easy set up & works well with Alexa (& you can turn her off) I haven't had sound quality like this since I was convinced to get rid of my old hifi. I will be adding to the system for the rest of the house now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely speaker, bit too base orientated This is a great speak, I have now two, one for kitchen and one for my living room. I have found that by itself, there isn't much acoustic sound when playing music. I think this is where having the Sub comes in handy, because it receives the beam from having to perform that duty and introduces higher frequencies to music

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos Beam Bought this just after Christmas and love it, great service from Richer Sounds

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a good experience I don't buy much stuff, but when I do I always go to these chaps. Good range, Prices are good, Great guys. I got a sonos one for the kitchen, was so impressed, got a play 5 for the dining room, and now got the beam for the telly in the lounge so that when we have friends around the music is all around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully balanced bit of kit Just set this up last night but initial impressions are very good - you get a sense of quality from the aesthetics to the room filling sound it produces [on a fairly limited test run]. Setup process is quite a lengthy process, but comprehensive enough to allow further Sonos speakers to be incorporated into the network. Should also note that there is no separate remote provided, but using your phone via the Sonos app is a pretty straightforward. You can also link your music streaming service of choice [i.e. Deezer for myself] and control it all via the Sonos app; however initial thoughts of the user interface are it seems a little clunky compared to the native Deezer app itself. Overall i've been impressed with the performance given the compact size, and would certainly recommend this for people after a premium product for small to medium sized rooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great. Sounds better. Having bought a pair of SONOS Play:1s to use as a stereo pair in one room, the sound on our new TV next door was pretty weak by comparison. Experience of the first purchase made me pay the extra for the Beam and I have not been disappointed. Simple to set up, it can cope with improving speech at low volumes as well as a full-bodied range for serious movie watching.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great smart, compact soundbar Really impressed with the service from Richer Sounds - super quick delivery by DPD and the product was really well packaged. Super easy to setup the Beam using the app and enable voice commands and can’t fault the sound for such a compact size, with a surprising amount of bass. Only negative is the lack of DTS support which means it’s quite tricky to get DTS>DD 5.1 and into the Beam using a PS4 etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos beam I purchased the Sonos beam after much debating , what could I expect from this sound bar .I previously had a Yamaha sound bar and wiireless subwoofer .I wanted something that gave a good sound but didn't look ugly in front of my tv .I.bought what hifi a few months ago and they featured the Sonos Beam and gave it a good rating .My biggest fear was a small sound bar that sounded like a biscuit tin .I always have buyers remorse and think I should of spent more to get the best. On this occasion I can gladly say it is worth every penny .Better still I got it for £329

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact sound bar This is really simple to set up, has great sound for the smaller room and it has extra kick pairing it up with two Sonos Play 1s. It’s currently at a great price at Richersounds

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up, great connectivity and super sound Purchased my first Sonos product and really pleased I opted for the soundbar. Connected first time and linked to television and sky box first time. For such a small device this sounds fantastic in a medium to large room.
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound from such a small unit I bought this just after Christmas when I was looking to replace my old av unit. I was given excellent advice and assistance and ended up buying a Sonos team and Sonos one
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Bought this at Christmas, it was easy to setup with my existing play 1, and with another play 1 which I have just purchased I now have complete surround sound.
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features and good sound for the size This is a good compact size soundbar. The Alexa features are great although it doesn’t do all commands as yet. Def need the play 1 speakers for added surround though to accompany it and with a sub I think it would sound awesome!
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound This replaced a Panasonic sound bar with sub. Although the beam doesn’t have a sub (option extra) it sounds much better. It’s a really clear sound, and the sound from speaking is much clearer. Great product, it’s a shame the sub is so overpriced! £699 at the time of writing this review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound for music and tv I bought this to go with my oled tv it looks great and sounds great first sonos I’ve bought will be buying more in the future
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound and sonos integration Bought during the Winter discount along with a couple of play:1s for surround sound. Took about a minute to set it all up and its superb - plus makes a lovely addition to my existing sonos setup. Now just need to convince the wife that we need the sub!
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound Goes well in my good sized lounge. No need for a sub. Very clear and sharp sound. Alexa is a bonus. Multiroom on Sonos is next to none.
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good functionality Very good sound, true play works well. Works with ps4 and chrome cast
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value home entertainment sound system. I bought the Sonos beam at Christmas after spending some time reviewing numerous alternatives. The beam offers great sound, is easy to set up and interacts effortlessly with Alexa and my Amazon music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound and easy set up Fast delivery and great product. Alexa makes it so easy to control your tv and sound.
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound for the hard of hearing A friend recommended the Sonos Beam after his wife commented that she could hear the TV so much better. I purchased it not being 100% convinced but after a few minutes testing back to back with my Yamaha AV system I could see an improvement. If you wear hearing aids or have trouble listening to speach on the TV I would recommend this.
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Surround Sound Bought the Sonos beam with two Sonos one’s and set up as a surround sound, we have a big living room so was a little unsure If the beam would be powerful enough, I didn’t have to worry, the sound is amazing and loud enough for what I need it for. It’s expensive stuff but as always you get what you pay for.
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome interface with amazing sound I bought this product 2 weeks ago to add to my original sonos play 5 and what an awsome addition. Cannot recommend the sonos range any more highly.
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features, good sound. Great little device, good sound. I would however suggest you to hear the sound before you buy. If youre like me, and purchasing this to replace your 5.1 surround sound system, you will want to also consider 2 x play 1s and the sub.
Date published: 2019-01-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sonos Beam - review Very happy with this product. Found it very easy to install and to integrate with the rest of my Sonos system via the app. Everything just worked perfectly first time. Having Alexa on the device is also cool although I was a little dissapointed that it only has limited Alexa functionality. I wanted to use the Drop-in feature but it's not available. Perhaps there will be a future software update for this?
