”This compact Sonos soundbar remains a superb choice.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 Product of the Year.

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 Great sound all round The speaker performs excellently. Speak is clear and well defined, but the mid-range and bass is there for the 'noisy parts' of movies to give impact, too. It paired with my LG TV very easily. I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos Newbie Wow! After years of making do with inferior speakers as the prevalence of streaming condemned our good old fashioned hi-fi systems to storage it was time for a reinvestment in sound quality. Following a demo at our local Richer Sounds we had a decision to make, clearly Sonos products are best in class but should we target our first Sonos purchase on the Five or a Beam configured with two SL Ones? It came down to an unanimous family vote, we wanted an upgrade on our existing TV soundbar with a bit of music, so the beam and two SL One configuration won the day (on this occasion :) ). Worth adding that the value of the in store demo cannot be under-estimated, the staff really helped with their knowledge and patience, answering countless questions from the family. Delivery following placement of telephone order via local store was super quick. Set up of the beam and two ones as surrounds was so easy using the Sonos app and my word, the upgrade in sound quality from our previous soundbar is immense! What beautiful immersive sound with really nice depth. For the size of our living room, this was ideal and not sure if an addition of a sub would be necessary or overkill. The beam and ones do a great job providing great surround sound with the sonos app providing some really useful features for enhancing film narrative and toning down loud notes at night-time (perfect for not waking neighbours or sleeping kids!). The beam and ones also provide a really nice option of streaming music through Spotify etc and the tunes sound excellent for our living room space. The beam is integrated to use either Amazon Alexa or Google assistant and this works perfectly too. For the curious of you out there, it's also easy to remove the SL Ones as surrounds from the beam if you so wish and instead pair these together as a stereo pair in another room. Calibrating the acoustics for your room using Trueplay is quick and relatively straightforward using the Sonos app but to do this you must have an IOS device. Overall, if you love your films, tv and music the beam supported by a couple of ones will delight you and is really well worth the investment. A purchase from Richer Sounds will even give you a peace of mind through their six year guarantee. We wondered what the fuss was about. We do now, Sonos rocks - it's that simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I did consider alternatives before deciding to purchase the Beam but I have no doubt it was the correct choice. The sound quality is excellent for music and for use with the TV, although not as strong on bass, with the ability to link with my other Sonos products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Fantastic Hardly noticeable ! Sits nicely under my tv so it looks neat and tidy. The sound quality is amazing and clear. So easy to set up and can be controlled by your phone for those times you can’t be bothered to get up to grab the remote that is on the other sofa . Well worth the purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound when I got it working The Sonos Beam didn't play well with my 5 year old LG TV so instead of plug and play via HDMI ARC I've had to use the optical connection which works but isn't ideal (Sonos needs to learn remote, LG displays No symbol when changing volume). Then when you watch Netflix on Sky Q you get no audio at all if the Sky Q is set to Dolby, although it works fine on the sky channels themselves. It doesn't come with a wall mount so that has to be bought separately. All that said, when you hey it working, the sound is good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed views Good: music sounds good, easy setup with TV. Mostly good sound from the TV Bad: expensive for what you get, TV volume fluctuates between apps and shows which was not a problem with TV sounds or previous soundbar. Speech volume can be low compared to other sounds, even with speech enhancement and you are adjusting the volume up and down during a show as it's too loud in some areas and then too quiet and you can't hear the dialogue. Volume control using TV remote gives no number (so no idea of relative volume setting) and sometimes doesn't seem to alter the volume much- better experience using the app, but don't want to when using TV only Also- locked to SONOS app. Cannot use bluetooth etc (no deduction for this). App seems to lose devices too often at this price point. If you've paid a premium and locked into the app, need to make sure it works well. Others also have this problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound - but a few reservations So after using he Beam for almost a year, I feel I have given it a fair trial! Sound-wise it's superb - TV speech is really good, and it certainly punches above it's weight and music sounds great too. So far so good. I do however have the following reservations. 1. Lack of support for DTS - I missed this prior to buying it, which may not be a big deal if you don't watch Blu-ray - but I do. You need a player that will convert DTS to Dolby on the fly which is not as easy as it sounds. After a couple of failures I had to buy a Xbox which works fine - I am not a gamer so its an expensive way of watching movies. 2. Slow start up - On my LG 4K TV it could take up to 30 seconds before hearing sound which was rather frustrating . Changing from HDMI to the Optical adapter improved this quit a bit. 3. Out of sync dialogue - Normally on live TV and not all channels - changing channels up and back normally sorted this. Again changing to the optical output has minimised the problem. The Sonos forums are full of posts about these issues - apparently Sonos blame LG and LG blame Sonos. I am not saying don't buy the Beam - but be aware that it is not all plain sailing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great performer for a small box Does what you’d expect very well. I’m not into loud TV, but can hear that there is plenty of base available for general use. Great service for. The Cambridge team

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent service & delivery, superb products I already had a few Sonos Speakers; however the Beam and Roam complement the set up very well. The Pro-Ject turntable plugged straight into my Sonos Play 5 and now we can listen to the wonderful crackling sound created by the ageing vinyls collect we have. The service and support offered by Chris at the Chester branch was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonia Beam I first bought a Sonos One for my apartment and soon realised I wanted a bit more flexibility to have sound throughout my apartment. The Sonos Beam is an attractive product and sits nicely with my TV. I moved the Sonos One into the kitchen and now I have flexibility and continuity. I am no music or TV buff and I was very happy to find the Sonos App works so easily with the devices. Delivery was punctual and fully track able. Great service and products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sonos beam Not very impressed for the amount of money I paid £400, bought it for the built in Alexa which will not work with a SkyQ box so a big let down, I was going to return it but just didn't want to argue with my wife as she didn't want go through all mucking about setting a new one up, I actually pack it up to send it back but like I say I didn't want any arguments about it.
