  • Sonos Beam - worth it or not?

    Since I am pretty much-upgrading everything in my house, might as well buy a new soundbar!

    Been looking at buying the Sonos Beam soundbar.

    Has anyone on here had any experience with it and soundbars in general?

    I've heard the Sonos Beam compared with the Yamaha YAS 109 soundbar. I purchased the Yamaha. Although I thought the Sonos sounded a little better, I didn't think the Sonos' sound quality justified the extra cost.

      We’ve got the earlier generation Sonos bar in the lounge. I think it’s pretty good, although I’ve not had any other soundbar to compare it to. What is clear is that it is much better than the standard tv speakers in our Sony AG8 Oled. The Sonos gets a bit bass heavy to me but otherwise it does have plenty of volume, does the job for most TV if you want to avoid lots of speakers and a surround sound set up. Typically we use the Sonos through the day and then I power up the main rig in the evening (C6 system).

        AlastairH thanks for that, most of my usage is for a more chill out feel, so listening to music via bluetooth and every day TV usage, my Hi-Fi setup would be for my movies.

        Think I need to find somewhere where I can get a demo.

          No problem. If you are thinking of demos John Lewis might be an option, they often have this sort of gear - well in my local High Wycombe store at least they did pre COVID.

        Aretos have you managed to have a demo on the Sonos soundbar?

        Would be interesting to see what your thoughts are!

        May buy one myself
