The Sonos Beam soundbar was upgraded to the second generation – Now with Dolby Atmos support

The new Sonos Beam (Gen 2) soundbar is little different in appearance from the first generation, but the features have been updated. For example, support for Dolby Atmos surround sound is new.

The Beam (Gen 2) speaker is said to have a more powerful processor than before, and in addition, the HDMI connection is now eARC compliant. With the updates, the soundbar has gained support for high-resolution audio formats such as Dolby Atmos. Sonos will add Amazon Music Ultra HD audio support and Dolby Atmos Music to its platform later this year. For example, Amazon Music Ultra HD enables lossless sound with Sonos speakers at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz quality.

The compact soundbar speaker measures 69 x 651 x 100 millimeters and weighs 2.8 kilograms. While the soundbar looks familiar, the design has been updated with a new grille and monochrome finish.

Within one essential change is that Beam (Gen 2) is now based on a five-speaker system, with the predecessor allowed to settle for three. At the same time, the manufacturer says that the amplifier power has increased, but the exact reading is not reported. In addition, the sound can be fine-tuned to suit the acoustics of the room using Trueplay technology.

The Beamin can also be mounted on a wall if desired, and can be controlled via, for example, the Sonos app, TV remote control, Apple AirPlay 2, and streaming apps. The Beam can be used as is, but it can also be used as part of a Sonos multi-speaker system.

The Sonos Beam (Gen 2) is already pre-orderable, but officially the speaker will go on sale on October 5 and will cost € 499.
