You can stream music directly via Airplay 2, Google Chromecast, SonosNet, or Spotify Connect via WiFi and connect your smartphone or tablet with the speaker.

    Great system.

    Rudolf Neuber | 7 August 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • sleek design
    • crazy sound
    • SonoS
    • Various options for hanging/mounting
    • I only need 1 SonoS beam, would have loved to have one more.

    Always wanted to install a SonoS system at home after experiences at others' homes. However, the price of a Playbar has always kept me (read; my girlfriend) from it. So after the release of the Beam decided (read; persuade my girlfriend) to buy one.

    Unpacking was a joy in itself. I myself had missed the delivery person so I still had the confetti left (thanks for the tip CoolBlue) to make unpacking the Beam even more festive.

    After installing the SonoS app, I followed the steps neatly and the whole thing was beeped and connected, really child's play.

    I hung the Beam under the TV without a special mount, so that it stands with its top forward, as is also the case in the 18th photo. However, I was curious if this would actually work. And it works great, especially ideal that sound also comes out on the sides so that I also have good sound when I just come out of the kitchen.

    All in all, highly recommended and I will be expanding my SonoS home network very soon (read; if my girlfriend allows me to).

    Very good soundbar with extras

    Jens De Rijcke | 24 July 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • nice sound
    • Easy installation
    • True play really makes a difference
    • clever design
    • No dolby atmosphere
    • Expected a little more bass

    The beam is highly recommended for anyone who wants to get a more than decent soundbar that also looks good and has some nice extras.

    The sound is above average, but it is also not the very best thing you have ever heard. I had expected a little more bass (which was to be expected, but I think an extra subwoofer is comparatively too pricey), but since I've only recently received it, it might also be a bit early to really judge it well. It is (of course) nothing to compare with sound from the TV. I linked it to 2 play one boxes to get a surround effect. Short test done: simply great!

    In any case, take the time (only a few minutes) to set up True Play, it really does make a difference.

    If I had to look for a downside: a pity that there is no dolby atmos support... but that's about it. If your living room is a ballroom, it may not really "make it" to be truly room-filling.

    Anyone who already owns something from Sonos knows the ease of use, and that is no different with the Beam. Airplay 2 support is also a real added value (if you have Apple at home). Finally just being able to listen to youtube (and all other things you can play on the ipad/iphone) via the sonos. Sonos has no equal in ease of use.

    In short: if you are looking for an affordable, rock-solid soundbar that also has that little bit extra (ease of use, design, airplay 2,...), don't hesitate!

    SuperSoundBar

    Jeroen Baars | 24 July 2018 | Bundle contains: No rear speakers | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • (relatively) Small but big sound
    • Beautifully finished
    • Voice control (still English, but Dutch is coming)
    • Price, compared to big brother Playbar
    • Simple (wireless) expandable system
    • Only 1 connection (HDMI, or optical via included HDMI adapter)
    • Only the Beam is not enough for real home theater
    • Invites to purchase more Sonos speakers (which is also a plus...)
    • Little bass present at low volume

    Just unpacking the Beam was already a party. What a beautiful thing!

    The box contained the Beam itself, power cable, HDMI/optic adapter and quick start guide. I especially like the fact that the HDMI adapter is included with Sonos.

    I chose the white version myself, because it fits better with the interior.

    The Beam is placed on the TV cabinet under the wall-mounted 55" TV.

    For imaging: Our viewing and listening area of the living room is approximately 5 x 5 meters, which gives an area of 25 m2. We sit right in front of the TV, across the room, so listen to the Beam from about 4/4.5 meters away, while watching TV. The Beam produces sufficiently powerful sound (at medium to high volumes). At low volume, the Beam may be a bit lacking in Bass for some. Considering the size, the sound is far beyond expectations!

    Sonos does have a solution for extra Bass: The €799 Sonos Sub. I doubt whether the Sub justifies the power (and price) difference in our home. The Beam has more than enough punch at the medium/higher volumes.

    2 extra functions that actually work really well are the night function, which filters out loud noises (for example, when the little one sleeps in the evening, a nice function) and the speech function, which reproduces voices extra well.

    I am thinking about going for the extra wireless Play 1 or Play One speaker set at the back, for surround sound. The sound that the Beam produces sounds good, but you don't get real surround from it. The Beam itself is very well suited for music. Of course everything depends on the size and layout of the room in which you use the Beam.

    What works well (if you get it working in English) is the added voice control via Amazon Alexa. If your Beam is connected via HDMI, you can turn the TV on/off via voice control, which is really nice. Volume is also controlled that way. And without remote control or app!

    Alexa can also answer many questions, or carry out commands you give it (such as controlling lighting/heating, etc.).

    This is currently only in English and can be turned on after some searching in the settings of the apps, but support for Dutch and Google Home in Dutch seems to be coming this year. That would only increase the value of the Beam.

    The price difference compared to its bigger brother the Playbar is only beautiful.

    Yes, the Playbar will sound better (certainly for larger rooms), but it is also a lot more expensive and does not have many functions that the smaller and cheaper Beam does.

    For someone who is looking for a sound technically good soundbar, which can also fulfill many other functions, look no further! The Beam will not disappoint!
