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 4 out of 5 by from It certainly looks good. Since my hearing has become iffy I bought this as recommended by Which. I haven't noticed too much difference in sound quality but I like the inter connectedness and the way the bar fits into my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blown away literally I bought this sound bar as a birthday gift for a friend. I’m totally jealous!!! It sounds amazing. Once calibrated for the room the sound is spatial, crisp, clear and excellent bass. We watched Avatar on Blu-ray and the sound transformed the movie. We were totally immersed. I need one for myself now… Just buy one already :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent soundbar I bought this a few weeks ago and I'm really happy with it's performance. Although it supports Atmos don't expect to hear anything above you. But this is a massive upgrade on TV speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bigger sound than the size suggests Replaced a 10 year old system with this and it can hold its ground against separates. Very impressed with the range of sound and dialogue is actually clearer than my old speakers could manage. Very impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounding and great looking This is the second Sonos beam that I have bought in 2 months as I was so pleased with the first one. Love the look and sound and the way it integrates with Alexa so I can tell it what to play.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beaming Brilliant! Ive had the Sonos beam for a coupe of weeks now.....unfortunately at the higher price of £449...that will teach me for procrastinating! I got it through PayPal - so 4 months interest free! It looks fantastic. It sits on top of custom made white unit - and blends in perfectly. All cables hidden in a stud wall and the Tv above looks fab. All bits of tech obviously purchased from RS! The set up is a sinch. The sound through the tv (whether analog digital or from the blu ray player) is crisp and detailed - with the right amount of base (without the need for a sub). Music from my iPhone sounds great and is easy to set up and play. Best of all, my girlfriend loves how it blends in without dominating the area. You get what you pay for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-around sound from a petite unit I wanted a neat, single device solution for cinema-quality sound with my new 65" 4K OLED TV, and the Beam 2 hasn't let me down. I've paired it with a Sonos Sub but even without it performs impressively, with vertical speakers that help fill the room. The Sub certainly kicks it up a level for the bass though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic improvement over internal TV speaker I've never bothered with sound systems for a TV before, until now. I think we can all agree that the in built TV speaker does a job, but has limitations due to the flat nature of modern TVs - so, I did my research and took the plunge with a Sonos Beam Gen 2 from Richer Sounds, in white. Firstly, the purchase process was as simple as it can be, with next day delivery. Thank you for the great service. The product arrives in quality packaging and has a real premium feel to it. It couldn't be simpler to set up, connect to the TV and to the home WiFi network - literally five minutes - and you're ready to go. Just make sure you have an HDMI (ARC) input on your TV. My flat screen smart TV is getting on for 6 years old, and has the HDMI ARC input. The difference is incredible. TV/Film audio is so much crisper and clearer now, with no lip sync issues. Even if there were lip sync issues, the Beam has a multitude of settings via the Sonos app to eliminate any thing like that. Since having the Beam, I have also added a Sonos Sub. If you can stretch to it, buy the Sub as well - it makes outstanding sound quality even better. The Sub handles all the lower frequency audio, allowing the Beam to "breathe" and concentrate on the mid and higher range. The difference is staggering. And, not just TV - you can also play music through the Sonos products using WiFi or Apple airplay (I imagine there's an Android equivalent, but I'm IOS all the way). It's not cheap, but it's a premium product, has amazing sound, and I also think it happens to look just gorgeous aesthetically. I absolutely do not regret buying the Beam (and the Sub) - expensive, yes, but makes such a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing soundbar I love Sonos products and this one is yet another great one. I upgraded from Sonos Beam gen 1, the look and feel is way better with the solid finishing. I didn't see a huge sound quality improvement, but that's probably due to the content I'm playing but the quality of the dialog while watching TV seems a bit better. i have yet to find a good movie to test the effect of the Dolby Atmos. However, if you have an old TV that doesn't support eARC perhaps you are better choose the Gen 1 model. I tested it with my TV that supports ARC and I had compatibility issues. It works great on my TV with the eARC HDMI port.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonus Beam 2 - excellent service as always The team at Richer Sounds in the Bath store gave me the best advice and service as they always do. The Sonus is great for my needs and much better than the TV speakers. Thank you Paul, Joe and Fred.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much better than the already great Beam Gen 1 Everything about the Gen2 is better than the Gen1, which was already a great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought it sooner. I held off buying the Sonos Beam because I wasn't sure how to make it blend in with the no cable look of the Wall mounted TV. Sanus mount to the rescue, 1 screwdriver and 30 minutes later we have a HUGE improvement over the normal TV audio. Linked with the house for normal music room by room and Alexa on Beam Gen 2 - this is a superb bit of kit. 1 issue - now I need to buy a SUB!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good sound on Sonos Beam Gen 2 I got this a few weeks ago from Richer Sounds in Chiswick. The staff were really nice and courteous (gave me a £10 discount as I was a first time customer). I’ve been happy with my purchase so far and I plan to get 2x Sonos One Gen 2 alongside this in due course

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound but a couple of annoyances Sounds great and really adds bass and clarity to the room considering it’s size. However, annoyingly there is no HDMI pass through so you’ll have to sacrifice a port on your TV to get EARC support (which Atmos only supports BTW - it won’t run over optical). And the second thing is there is no controller or front panel so changing any settings i.e checking/enabling night mode or even just checking whether Atmos is wing output will require you to unlock your phone, open the app and check manually which gets old rather quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than anticipated After reading many reviews I chose the Sonos which was compatible with my Sonos home setup. I already had a fairly top range Samsung sound bar but wanted something better. I didn't expect it to as impressively better as it has turned out. Highly recommended plus excellent service and price from Richer Sounds

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended Not quite cinematic surround sound, but close without upsetting your neighbours. A welcome upgrade on television speakers, in sleek, small, package. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat and great full range sound Neat and great full range sound sound-bar for a small room. Sleek looking and not as long as some others. Great low and low-mid response with good but not perfect high end clarity. Setup was straightforward enough but did have to overcome some hurdles when connecting to TV and “tuning” the sound-bar to the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive sound Got this as a Christmas /birthday present from my wife to an addition to my sonos one and I have to say that I've been blown away by the quality of it. The base rich and punchy, mids and high impressive. I love it. I'm looking into build up a full cinematic sound system in the future. As a bonus this comes with 6 years warranty from Richersounds. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive sound for a modest sized soundbar Having moved house I wanted to switch my large (1060mm) Samsung black soundbar for something that would blend better with my new "The Frame" TV - the TV that thinks it's a picture on the wall. No point in hiding your telly if you still have a whacking great black soundbar.... A few years ago the guys at Richer Sounds helped me put together a dedicated cinema room, that was, frankly, brilliant! No room for a cinema room in the new house. And keen for the lounge to look like a lounge and not like a TV room. But keen for a good+ sound system. The Beam is terrific, and I decided to add in two Sonos One speakers as rear speakers. No wires, no clutter, but the sound output is really good! Excellent support as ever from Richer Sounds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far very good I received this soundbar a few days ago, and installed it without too much trouble after I read the on line information. I used my mobile phone to install on my 7 year old Samsung TV. The only problem I had was selecting the appropriate speaker set-up for the TV. Not "External" speaker. HDMI Arc works well. Substantial improvement - dialogue is much clearer than before and music is fine (I am not an audiophile). Too early for a long-term evaluation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful sound I bought the Sonos Beam a couple of weeks ago and I’m amazed by the sound quality from this small sound bar. LG OLED tv now so much better. It was very simple to set up. I liked it so much I immediately ordered a speaker to match and thinking of adding another one soon.
