Sonos have a new mini-soundbar out, it's called the Sonos Beam and it is being billed as the  smart, compact soundbar for your TV.

It Plays music, TV, movies, and can be grouped with your other Sonos music system. Featuring clear dialogue from speech enhancement technology. Easily pairs with your TV & remote and Airplay/iOS devices and features Amazons Alexa voice control.

Sonos has designed this mini-sound bar for smaller home theatres and wanted it to be smart, sound great and give users that Sonos sound they like so much.

So how does it work? You can listen to all your favourite streaming services, command your smart home with Amazons Alexa and group it together with your other Sonos speakers and amplifiers for party mode.  The new soundbar works with ARC HDMI so it's a single cable to your TV (ARC stands for Audio Return Channel).

We should see the Sonos Beam here in Thailand and SE Asia around July/August time, it's a great looking piece of kit and even though it's small it uses passive radiators to give the feeling of a much larger speaker.  It will be ideal in small-mid size media rooms, lounges and living areas.

 The Sonos Beam features an array of speakers and passive radiators.
