Sonos Beam review: Compact in size, not sound

The Sonos Beam is a lovely compact soundbar measuring 651 x 100 x 68.5mm and weighing 2.8kg. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Beam soundbar has a soft-to-touch material covering, blending with most decors. It comes in black and white colour options. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Beam supports Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and AirPlay 2. It also offers all the great features that come with Sonos, like Trueplay tuning. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The five Class-D digital amplifiers, four full-range woofers, tweeter and three passive radiators deliver big on sound for the Beam's compact size. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Beam has HDMI ARC that syncs the audio, picture and remote. There's also an optical connection too though if your TV doesn't support HDMI ARC. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Sonos Beam shows what can be achieved in a compact package. So long as you intend to turn up the volume, it's a great speaker and soundbar option. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
