”The first Sonos soundbar with Dolby Atmos is an absolute belter.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 Product of the Year.

Premium sound

With no fewer than 11 Class-D amps and speakers packed into its sleek lines, the 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 Sonos I brought my sonos setup about a month ago really happy with the product and the service I received.
Date published: 2021-06-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good indeed by soundbar standards. Soundbars are generally a poor substitute for a proper discrete component system. This one is much less of a compromise. I thought I'd try it for a bit and maybe send it back if dissatisfied. It's pretty expensive after all. It arrived, I plugged it up and was initially really disappointed. It sounded thin and tinny and not much better than the speakers in my TV, which are shocking. I was going going to return it when... I tried the Trueplay room calibration thing. Free app on any IOS device. Absolutely incredible transformation. It now sounds gorgeous, and not a million miles away from the Genelec reference monitors that were there before. I got 2 cheapish Ikea Symfonisk speakers for the rear surrounds and the system improved dramatically again. And not just the spacial imaging. The quality of the Trueplay room alignment is also much better if you have the extra point sources in the room. So after a couple of weeks this system starts to look like an incredible bargain. You've got a complete Dolby Atmos capable surround system that sounds really full and lively for less than a grand. The aesthetics are way easier to live with than a system of 7.2.1 discrete speakers, and you can have it working well inside an hour instead of taking days to rewire your viewing room. The low end is extremely good without the very expensive Sonos sub too, although I've even so impressed that I might just try one out to see what difference it makes. Finally, people have mentioned lip sync issues. I don't have Sky Q but on Freeview, Freesat, Netflix and Amazon I have experienced no sync issues at all. It's rock solid, pin sharp lip sync.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Playbar upgrade I had the Sonia Playbar before but found the optical connection fiddly and wanted to have a more powerful sound. This is an awesome speaker that looks great and is really powerful. I’ve really enjoyed watching Dolby Atmos supported stuff on Netflix it feels so immersive.
Date published: 2021-06-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, easy set up 2 weeks into using this and I'm impressed. Particularly the low end sound it can achieve. The only negative is I'm not convinced that the Dolby Atmos effect really works. I'd read a few reviews that suggest it's one of few sound bars that the Atmos feature works well. So far I'm not convinced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ARC with Older Play:1 surrounds/Works with LG CX I managed to get an Atmos/DD surround system utilising my older Play:1s paired to the Arc and the new S2 app so saving £358. Some effort is required to add older 'incompatible' speakers to the Arc, as they will initally not be seen by the S2 app, only the older S1 app. You must 'factory reset' your older speakers first and then add them via the Arc's 'Add Surrounds' setting once they are discovered. It's not plug & play, but doable. The S2 app is a great improvement and it's easy to adjust for TV lip sync and Surround volume. I have a LG CX TV which has an eArc output, so once connected with the supplied hdmi cable and Sound Out set to ARC & eARC enabled on the LG TV, you are good to go. The S2 app shows that you are receiving Dolby Atmos, there's nothing on the Arc itself, it works in Netflix and ApplyTV+, but PrimeVideo shows only DD5.1 (for the programs I've looked at so far), but they don't state Dolby Atmos anyway. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds wonderful! It's wonderful! Sounds great especially with the two Ones as rear speakers. Really adds depth to the sound.
