Home audio house Sonos recently revealed its all-new Beam soundbar with support for Dolby Atmos, which will help it catch up to its big brother, the Arc, which launched with the feature last year. And after a few weeks of waiting, it's officially released and available to purchase directly through Sonos. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear as if Amazon received any stock.
Other changes include a slightly tweaked form factor, HDMI eARC support, a more capable CPU that’s 40% faster, and added “arrays,” which is a term Sonos uses for sophisticated software that helps bounce audio vertically and horizontally around the room. The original model had three "arrays," while this one is loaded up with five.
It sees a slight jump in price, up from $399 USD to $449 USD, but that shouldn't stop it from being one of the buzziest gifts this holiday season. Or, frankly, one of the best values in the home audio space.
