Sonos Arc review

 

Sonos has a new surround sound solution and it's contained entirely in a single soundbar it calls Arc. While we're not sure if the device gets its name from the HDMI interface it uses, the curved sound it pitches or the fact that it is perhaps,...

The Arc from Sonos is a streamlined soundbar that offers a premium surround sound experience without the need for supplementary speakers. If you want a minimalist surround sound package and you have a squarish home cinema room then the Sonos Arc is an...

Sonos Arc review

 

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 seven years ago, a replacement is long overdue. Behold the Sonos Arc - a Dolby Atmos soundbar for a new generation.

Great Dolby Atmos performance ; Excellent sound even without extra height channels ; Alexa and Google Assistant on board ; Easy to setup and integrate with Sonos multiroom solution

Requires compatible TV for Dolby Atmos support ; No source input ; Only single-band (2.4GHz) Wi-Fi

Sonos has not only followed up its previous full-fledged soundbar offering, it has improved it in every way possible. The Arc is a superb Dolby Atmos soundbar – right up there with the best – and has all the bells and whistles of Sonos' multi-room...

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.

Sonos Arc review: An upgrade worth the wait

 

Sonos has finally given us an upgrade to the Playbar, and it's impressive. The Arc has an improved design, modern features and stellar sound. Like the Beam, it only has one HDMI port, which will be an issue for some. However, if you have a TV that...

Stellar sound for music and TV ; Dolby Atmos ; Automatically adjusts to content and additional speakers

A single HDMI input ; Expansion gets pricey quickly ; Sound favors treble at high volumes
