Beam made better
The Sonos Beam (Gen 2) is smarter on the inside and more beautiful on the outside. Inside, a powerful new processor facilitates support for Dolby Atmos. With non-Dolby Atmos material, enhanced virtual surround sound modes ensure that this is the most immersive sounding Beam yet. Subtle evolution of the design incorporates a new, perforated grille, highlighting the same sleek style and compact dimensions.

Powerful sound from a compact case
Although compact and unobtrusive, the Beam’s five internal speakers ensure it hits hard. Sonos speakers are renowned for their room-filling sound, and the Beam effortlessly upholds this tradition. From its deep, powerful bass to finely detailed top end, this Sonos soundbar doesn’t disappoint.

Support for cinematic Dolby Atmos
Use with Dolby Atmos-encoded content and enjoy a more spacious, immersive sound – just like at the cinema. Dolby Atmos creates an impression of height, letting you experience effects such as overhead aircraft and falling rain.

Upgrade to surround sound – effortlessly
Taking the Beam to the next level is easy with the Sonos family of speakers. When you’re ready for even more powerful bass and rear effect speakers, simply add the Sonos Sub and your choice of rear speakers. The speakers connect via wi-fi, for a speaker cable-free link. Use the Sonos app to find and link the speakers and, within minutes, you’re ready to enjoy totally enveloping surround sound.

Hear every word
Fine-tuned by Oscar-winning sound engineers, the Beam doesn’t miss a whisper of dialogue. When the action intensifies and you might otherwise struggle to hear the dialogue, simply turn on Speech Enhancement in the Sonos app.

Great sound – anytime of the day or night
The Beam doesn’t just sound good at cinematic levels, it’s just as impressive at lower volumes, too. When the kids have gone to bed or you don’t want to disturb the neighbours, simply switch to Night Sound. You’ll still get the same, perfectly balanced, crisp and clear sound, just without the same intensity.

The best with music
Much more than just a highly impressive soundbar, the Beam is a Sonos speaker and that means that it’s also made for music. The Sonos music streaming system is well established and widely regarded as one of the best in the business. If you don’t already have the Sonos app, the chances are that you’ll know someone who has. With easy connectivity to your favourite streaming services, plus Internet Radio and podcasts, there’s something for everyone. Not sure on what to listen to? Why not discover new music on Sonos Radio.

Optimal sound – with Trueplay
Whether you’re watching movies, gaming or listening to music, Sonos’s innovative Trueplay technology means you get optimal performance – in any room. 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 and the unit is placed close to a wall or in the centre, the Beam adapts to give the most natural and realistic sound possible.

Freedom of control
Choice is the keyword here. Use the Sonos app for effortless music streaming and personalised settings. Alternatively, the Beam is also compatible with Apple AirPlay 2 or hands-free, via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant voice control. For streamlined control, your existing TV remote syncs with the speaker for one-remote volume and channel change. No remote or smartphone to hand? Then simply use the touch sensitive controls on the speaker itself to adjust the volume, play/pause and mute the sound.

The Sonos family
With a range of speakers that now includes portable, installation and home cinema, Sonos is the number one choice for millions around the world. The brilliant Sonos app makes it easy to control your entire Sonos system – no matter how large and all-encompassing it becomes.

Upgrade your TV sound and music to premium-grade, with the Sonos Beam (Gen 2).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Initial review for what might be A great weighty well built soundbar. Great clean look and minimal which is what I was after. Relatively easy set up using app, however, this is where problems came up. After a simple install: one hdmi from TV's arc port into soundbar and one input source (fire stick) to TV the sound was a big improvement over my TV's sound but was full of dropouts and the odd crackle. I immediately searched the web and saw many of the same issues. I obviously then checked cables and re-started the install but was left with the same issue. I then changed the TV's sound output to pcm stereo which was advised which has sorted the dropouts but now I don't seem to have a full base sound and certainly no surround effect. I'm aware that I probably need a doubly Atmos enabled TV but should I get some sort of 5.1 if what I'm streaming from is a 4k firestick! I'm confident that with he right info maybe from Richer Sounds or Sonos themselves I'll get there eventually and get the most out of this soundbar but for now it's gonna be a three star til it does what it says on the tin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple elegant with good sound compact size means it neatly fits under my phillips tv and beween its legs. setup is easy via a smart phone but note for the ultimate calibration you need a later model iphone or ipad, however everything else can be done by android. once set up it is pretty much forget control since vol can be adjusted via tv remote and tv sound is automuted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound I purchased this a few weeks back and I have to say what a great piece if kit. I have been looking around for a sound bar for a while. I am really impressed by the sound quality of the product. The bass is great (Not a massive room), but having read reviews of the matching Sub, I that that might be my next purchase, it's just on a bit of the costly side.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clear sound, but not the finished article I spent about a year deliberating my next sound bar, even purchasing a Samsung S61A which was so poor I returned it, before getting this Beam2. The sound is clear and voice enhancing great for my wife who does not hear as well. Having owned a Sonos speaker before I must say I was hoping for a little more room filling sound than it produces, but it does the job pretty well and offers as good sound as any other sound bar in its price range(in my opinion). Unfortunately it still lacks the bass warmth that I seek and so will eagerly anticipate Sonos producing a more affordable sub in future as buying the current one that’s available or upgrading to an arc I find prohibitively expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos gen 2 is a right BLAST Bought this Sonos gen to go with my new oled and I am very happy, for a mid ranging soundbar the sound is very powerful and clear especially as I am not using other speakers or subwoofers simply because the sound from the Sonos Gen 2 is powerful enough for me and on many occasions it is turned down because it is to loud even on low volume. Which is not a bad thing at all. I would recommend to anyone who wants great sound for their tv without sitting a fortune.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound bar from Sonos This is my first ever sound bar and I did a lot of research. There were a number of contenders - but ultimately if you do not need Bluetooth, this is an excellent choice. I’ve connected via eARC and not had any issues. Sound quality is good - I feel it has enough bass even without the sub woofer. Much better than. The standard TV speakers and watching films are now a treat

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos Beam Gen 2 Had the sound bar for a few weeks and its done everything i was hoping an more. The team in store we a great bunch and super helpful. TGhe sound the beam kicks out is great and is perfect for my medium sized living room. Don't forget that this needs the S2 app so if you have any S1 legacy speakers they wont integrate with the Beam Gen 2 which is a bit disappointing as you have to use the S1 & the S2 apps. Although as a sound bar only the Beam is great and the volume controls works straight from my sky remote so i am dead happy with mine.
