Sonos Announces the Sonos Beam Soundbar

Sonos Announces the Sonos Beam Soundbar

At the Sonos media event today, the company announced AirPlay 2 would be coming in July for its newer speakers such as Sonos One, but also unveiled a brand new product called Beam.

Sonos has added another product to its speaker empire: the Beam, a seeming hybrid of the Playbase and the One. Sonos seems to have finally listened and has equipped the Beam with HDMI. Sonos Beam doubles as both a smart speaker and soundbar for your TV, and it's packing a lot of features for its $399 asking price. Out of the box, Beam comes with Amazon Alexa in the US, UK, Germany, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and soon, in France.

That's becoming more hard as some of the tech giants such as Amazon, Apple and Google start creating their own hardware, complete with voice assistants offering "smart" capabilities beyond what Sonos - first and foremost an audio specialist - can manage. It comes in black and white and at 25 inches long is 60 percent smaller than the Sonos Playbar soundbar, which retails for $699. Around the back you'll find the HDMI input, Ethernet port, power connection and a pairing button.

And don't think small means it's not powerful as with four custom-built elliptical full-range woofers, three passive radiators and a single tweeter it should sound pretty good. With Alexa, you can set moods and perform smart home tasks like locking doors, turning down the lights and changing the thermostat, and thanks to the Beam's proximity to the TV, it works as a handy voice remote for those of us with Amazon Fire TVs. "We believe we've created the best, most versatile, smart speaker in the world". Customers enjoying AirPlay 2 on Sonos will also gain a new voice experience with the addition of Siri.

Sonos Beam is available for pre-order now and costs $399.

The objective of the new box is not just to play music via the Sonos app, which funnels everything from Spotify to Apple Music to TuneIn through Sonos' splendid array of multi-room speakers - with Apple AirPlay 2 support on the way in July across this and The rest of the Sonos range. Ask Siri to play any track, album, or playlist on Apple Music by using an iOS device to start playing on Sonos.
