Sonos Beam: Alexa, Google and Apple walk into a small, affordable sound bar

 

The Sonos Beam offers the flexibility to choose your own voice ecosystem in a TV sound bar package.

The Sonos Beam offers the promise of multiple voice assistants, with Amazon Alexa now and Google Assistant in the future. Its expansive sound can fill a small room. HDMI connectivity includes the ability to power up and control TV input switching via...

The lack of a subwoofer means the Beam lacks deep bass compared to sub-equipped competitors. You lose some connectivity options on TVs that lack ARC. Google Assistant hasn't been added yet.

Although some cheaper options sound better, Sonos Beam is a feature-packed, voice-operated sound bar with unmatched flexibility.

Sonos Beam review: A more-affordable, smarter soundbar option

 

If you've been reticent or reluctant to buy a soundbar until now, the Sonos Beam is a product that does everything it can to push you over that line.

Great price-point ; Easy setup ; Comprehensive compatibility

Not as big impact as the Playbar or Playbase ; No Google Assistant (yet)

Sonos Beam Review

 

The Sonos Beam impressed in at pretty much every turn. Its sound quality isn't the very best but it certainly punches well above its price tag. It offers loads of sound customization. It looks great in almost every living room. And to boot, it includes...

Sonos Beam Is a Great Smart Soundbar for Not Too Much Money

 

People who own Sonos speakers love their Sonos speakers. I'm one of them. In the three to four years that I've been living in the Sonos ecosystem, however, one big complaint was that I couldn't use Sonos for my TV unless I barfed up $700 for the Sonos...

Fantastic sound and fantastically easy to use

Sonos Beam im Test

 

Sonos setzt auf Alexa. Die neue kleine Soundbar Beam wäre aber auch ohne die Amazon-Sprachassistentin eine reizvolle Neuheit, denn die Amerikaner haben erstmals HDMI an Bord.

günstiger Einstieg ins beste Multi-Room-System ; Alexa an Bord

zum Musikhören nur eingeschränkt empfehlenswert

AUDIO Klangurteil: 81 Punkte; Preis/Leistung: sehr gut

Sonos Beam im Test: So smart, so gut - PC Magazin

 

Mit der Beam erweitert Sonos sein Multiroom-Portfolio um ein zweites, kompakteres Soundbar-Modell. Doch unser Test zeigt: In der kleinen smarten Box steckt neben Amazons Sprachassistentin noch weitaus mehr, als man auf den ersten Blick vermuten dürfte ...

weite Soundkulisse ; gute Spracherkennung ; Design ; smarte Features

kein Bluetooth ; App ist Pflicht zur Inbetriebnahme

video Testurteil: gut; Preis/Leistung: überragend; video: Kauftipp
