NOTE: To experience Dolby Atmos Sound you need a compatible TV that supports Dolby Atmos and Atmos encoded content. For Dolby Atmos Music, Beam (Gen 2) requires a compatible streaming service.
SUBMERGE IN THE DRAMATICALLY REALISTIC SOUND WITH THE UPGRADED BEAM (GEN 2)
The team at Sonos have upgraded the Beam (Gen 2) from the inside to unlock its potential to deliver Dolby Atmos sound. The Beam (Gen 2) features a 40% faster chip than the previous generation to push the sonic limits for a soundbar this size. This chip creates two new audio paths for a virtual surround sound experience. With this chip embedded the Sonos Beam (Gen 2) has the right bandwidth for it to map sounds in space for a 3D effect, whether you're watching a movie or listening to music.
FIVE-SPEAKER DESIGN WITH PASSIVE RADIATORS AND CLASS-D AMPS FOR CLEAN AUDIO
The Sonos Beam (Gen 2) has been carefully engineered to offer an immersive audio experience that plunges you into a cinematic action with waves of sound that capture every whisper and footfall. To enable this the Beam features five Class-D digital amplifiers that are perfectly tuned to match the five-speaker drivers and acoustic architecture. The acoustic design for the Beam integrates four full-range elliptical mid-woofers that ensure accurate mid and low-end output along with one tweeter for high frequencies to ensure you hear the faithful representation of the entire frequency spectrum. The Beam (Gen 2) also incorporates three passive radiators that enhance low frequencies for balanced, powerful sound.
ENJOY PERFECT TUNING, SPEECH ENHANCEMENT AND NIGHT SOUND VIA THE SONOS APP
With the upgraded Sonos Beam (Gen 2) you can experience Trueplay tuning technology that perfectly adapts the sound of the Beam (Gen 2) for the unique acoustics of the room it is placed in so your content always sounds just the way it should. The updated chip enables advanced audio processing to ensure balanced and high-quality sound from wall to wall even at low volumes. The Beam (Gen 2) also comes with a dedicated Sonos App that lets you connect to your favourite streaming services and enable Speech Enhancement Mode and Night Sound mode along with EQ adjustments on the fly. The Speech Enhancement mode allows for greater clarity of human voice when enable and the Night Sound mode reduces the intensity of loud effects and enhances quieter ones. You also get access to EQ settings to change the Bass, Treble and loudness of the speaker.
NOTE: Trueplay Tuning Technology requires an iOS device to function.

It is truly amazing speaker bar. I have to confess this is probably best speaker I have listened to. It comes closer to Marshall speakers but with better tech and sleeker design.
I bought these mainly as my computer speakers. :|
Sounds crazy?! And yes this is what they are NOT meant for .. but they fit very nicely under my monitor and provide fabulous sound. I have limited space for my monitor and speakers on my work table. I tried many computer speakers .. Logitech Z623 (another amazing set of speakers), Pebbel plus, Bose companion, Sony XB43, Tribit stormbox, Marshall Emberton, Sony XB43 (two in stereo paring), Amazon echos (including Echo Studio) but for some reason or other, none worked to my satisfaction.
What I wanted was kind of all purpose speakers. Great for music; great for gaming; great for movies (latest audio supports including ATMOS) and Sonos Beam (Gen 2) fits best so far.
Why four star for this great product? The setup issues! It doesn't have bluetooth connectivity for music. Needs to be connected using mobile App. The App is not too intuitive nor very easy to use/setup. I wasted lot of time trying to set it up .. even with TV. One may have to view some videos or read some material for setup. I was about to return it when I could successfully hear the beautiful sound from TV and then from computer the way I wanted. Probably providing alternate connectivity options like bluetooth or simple 2.5 jack input would have been good for basic connectivity related trouble shooting. For lot of time I wasnt sure if Bar's input HDMI port was faulty or what when I could not make it sound!
We appreciate your honest & elaborative review, Vijay Kumar!
Sonos Soundbar Beam 2 is wonderful with Atmos for a small room. It works on WiFi, no Bluetooth. If Headphones zone can sell the rear speakers from IKEA - Symphonic, that will be good. They are prized 50% lesser than Sonos One.
We're really happy that you have such great thoughts about the product and thanks for the amazing review!
