”Simple to set up, lovely to live with and supremely capable, the Sonos Arc is a soundbar of rare quality.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

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 4 out of 5 by from Great soundbar for my setup Bought the Sonos Arc to replace my previous Sonos Playbar which I have always been very happy with. I find that the Sonos Arc has more bass (this means that I have turned the loudness option off), and as I live in a flat, there is no need for me to purchase the Sonos Sub. I have connected the Arc via HDMI to my TVs eARC HDMI port. Although it is quite a pricey device, it has great sound and Dolby Atmos. It is ideal for people who live in the Sonos Ecosystem. I use my old Sonos Play 1s as rear surround speakers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound but short of perfect Bought as soon as it came out as rave reviews. Sound quality is great both from TV and from android phone (connects via your home network not Bluetooth so be careful!) and I would defo connect via Ethernet cable as sound quality much improved compared to Wifi. The downsides are that PCM Multi-Channel support will not be enabled until later this year but at least it will have this - for those of us with true PCM audio on our movie files. Sonos have said it will never support DTS or DTS-HD as these cost for licencing, meaning that if you have movies encoded with these audio streams you can expect them to pare down to standard Dolby Digital before playing. Hardly a big deal for the average consumer but for those investing in this piece of kit a bit annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome !! Fantastic sound bar I bought Sonos Arc on the basis of several reviews & as I already had a Sonos Beam (which is also excellent) I decided to take the plunge & upgrade to Arc. I haven’t been disappointed as this is an incredible piece of kit. Sound quality is amazing with both television & music & connection is seamless with Spotify. I already had two Sonos speakers meaning that I now have 5.1 surround sound which delivers a real cinematic experience. Delighted with my purchase and would recommend it unreservedly, have a listen & you’ll hear what I’m talking about .... amazing !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound on both music and films. I bought the new Sonos Arc, Fives and Subs to turn into a 5.1 surround system. I have to say it really is good sound quality. This replaces my 5.1.2 system and i'm more than happy with the results in spite of so many people telling me that sound bars do not work. This one does and i suspect the reason it does is related to its length and the 11 speakers inside. I'm not sure I would like it as much without the sub as it really does add a rich dimension when listening to music. Films also sound top notch and as someone with hearing aids, it is welcomed to be able to hear speaking even when not wearing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos Arc - Simply fantastic! I bought this ready for launch and i do not regret it at all, it is a fabulous bit of kit! As Is normally the case the Service and support from Richer Sounds was superb
