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 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
