Sonos Arc review


What Hi-Fi? Awards 2020 winner. Sonos's first Dolby Atmos soundbar is an absolute belter

Convincing Dolby Atmos ; Dynamic, detailed and weighty ; All of the usual Sonos smarts

Music could be better projected ; Heavily reliant on your TV’s specs

Simple to set up, lovely to live with and supremely capable, the Sonos Arc is a soundbar of rare quality

Sonos Arc review: Dolby Atmos soundbar delivers big sound


With the Playbar released over eight years ago, a replacement is long overdue. Behold the Sonos Arc - a Dolby Atmos soundbar for a new generation.

Sonos Arc review: Ahead of the curve


Superbly composed and balanced sound but the Arc is hamstrung by its lack of inputs

Great sound quality ; Easy to use and set up ; Google Assistant and Alexa support

Slightly bright sound ; Only one HDMI connection

The Sonos Arc is a fabulous product. Indeed, it’s the best standalone soundbar in this price bracket I’ve listened to and it copes well with all types of source material. Atmos works well, dialogue is clear and it’s musical enough to be your main...

Sonos Arc review


“Sonos finally gets around to inventing Dolby Atmos”

Wide, tall sound ; Impressive bass response ; Adept with music as well as movies ; Cracking control app (even in beta)

Treble has attitude ; Slightly uneven frequency response ; No MQA support

At last, Sonos is able to give you the big-screen sound to go with those big-screen pictures.

The Sonos Arc will impress both music and movie lovers, while also looking great in a loving room. However, it's not cheap at S$1,499.
