O feixe é o novo, máis soundbar compacto e máis barato de especialistas de son multi-room sonos, que promete ser unha gran actualización dunha caixa para o seu son TV, con Alexa e funcionalidade orador intelixente construído en.

Na superficie do feixe parece ser un produto relativamente simple. É un todo-en-un soundbar que se conecta á súa TV vía HDMI ou cable óptico e é controlado polos botóns de volume no mando a distancia do televisor.

That means there’s a single cable running to your TV and one for power – no other cables leading to other speakers or a sub is required. It can’t get any more simple to use just as a dumb TV speaker.

But the Beam is more than a simple soundbar, being a fully-fledged Sonos smart speaker as well. Like the Sonos One, the Beam has Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant support built in, with Google Assistant promised too at a later date.

That makes the Beam a jack of all trades, capable of handling all your TV audio duties, answering your questions and commanding smart home devices via Alexa, while acting as one of the best multi-room music speakers money can buy.

Montar

Setting up the Beam was simple. Plug the included HDMI cable into a port on your TV that’s labelled ARC (audio return channel), plug in the power cable and fire up the Sonos app on your iPhone or Android device.

Despois de un rápido tutorial vai ser instalado e funcionando. Se tes un iPhone, entón tes a posibilidade de realizar o sonos chama TruPlay axuste, que implica axitando o móbil ao redor, mentres sons altos xogar a través da sala para calibrar o altofalante para mellor se axustar ao espazo.

Cando se usa como un altofalante TV simplemente asegurarse de TV é seleccionada como a fonte de son na aplicación sonos ao feixe e entón usar a súa televisión como normal, controlar o volume a través do seu mando a distancia normal,.

audio do televisor vén a través de moi rixidamente controlado co diálogo excelentemente clara e arredondada - un punto feble en moitos falantes de TV deixar soundbars compactos só. O feixe funciona como un 3.0 altofalante con altofalantes da canle central dedicado que se proxectan directamente a vostede, ademais de altofalantes de canle esquerdo e dereito que se proxectan o son cun ángulo a partir das extremidades da barra.

A separación estéreo das canles esquerdo e dereito é moi bo para un soundbar tan compacta, e é certamente un paso adiante en comparación con altofalantes de TV.

se o feixe non ven con un sub, pero pode engadir un e algúns altofalantes traseiros se quere (máis sobre iso máis tarde). Como tal, carece de graves trovejando reais, polo que aqueles que buscan estrondo profundo do último filme pode decepcionar. Pero o feixe fai unha sorprendente boa intento de son de gama completa de só unha caixa fina, con máis profundidade do que se podería esperar dado o tamaño.

É deixar baixo ningunha ilusión de que está a suceder en escenas de acción con efectos de son completos de ataque e drama, while sport such as the World Cup has a reasonable amount of atmosphere from the crowd without drowning out the commentators with vuvuzela blasts.

Two optional sound modes tweak the audio. Night mode crushes dynamic range so that loud sounds are suppressed and quiet sounds are made more audible, which helps to hear what’s going on when listening at low volumes out of courtesy to your neighbours.

Dialogue enhancer further boosts dialogue, but I never found I needed it to hear what was going on, even in hushed scenes.

Tamén pode axustar os graves, agudos e "Loudness" do altofalante usando o ecualizador. A maioría estará satisfeito coa configuración estándar, pero se quere un pouco máis abaixo que pode poñer en marcha-lo.

Música

Mentres boa para TV, o feixe gaña vida cando alimento-lo con unha boa música. Parece semellante ao sonos Un en calidade de audio, só cun escenario sonoro máis amplo e máis imersivas grazas aos distintos altofalantes nunha caixa. It shines with all the clarity, punch and energy you would expect from a Sonos speaker, with great separation of instruments, exciting highs, driving treble and enough bass to round out the sound.

It is certainly powerful enough to fill a room and then some. Máis que 60% was overkill in my lounge, but the sound stayed clean and crisp all the way up.

The beauty of Sonos’s audio solution is that it will accept pretty much any music service, and makes them all searchable and playable from the single Sonos app, meaning you’re not tied to just one company’s music service or input source.

The Alexa integration works just as well in the Beam as it does in the One – it could hear me at all times, even over very loud music, and had simple and effective control over Spotify. You can control the volume at any time, including when watching TV using Alexa, which was good.

The Beam can be used on its own, but it will also play nicely with a variety of other Sonos speakers. Should you want to add more bass you can, with Sonos’s wireless sub, while rear channels can be added using a pair of any of the company’s other speakers, including the Play:1, Play:5 ou Sonos One.

igualmente, with other Sonos speakers you can make the Beam part of a multi-room audio group and can even send your TV audio to multiple rooms as an input source.

  • There are touch-sensitive volume, pause/play, track skip and microphone mute buttons on the top of the Beam
  • An optical to HDMI adapter is included in the box should your TV not have ARC through HDMI

para efectos de comparación, the larger Sonos Playbar or Sonos Playbase both cost £699. The Sonos Sub also costs £699, un Sonos One costs £ 199, the Play:1 £159 or the Play:5 £ 499.

Veredito

Despite being £300 cheaper than Sonos’s other TV audio solutions, the Beam is expensive for just a soundbar. A cousa é, it isn’t soamente a soundbar.

It’s one of the most compact and aesthetically pleasing soundbars that still has full-range sound without needing a sub. It’s also an excellent multi-room audio speaker, which can be combined with other wireless speakers to make a wireless 5.1 home cinema set up. And it’s a very good Alexa-powered smart speaker that sounds great.

The beauty about Sonos’s audio gear is that it’ll work with the music services you already use and make using them a more enjoyable experience.

Those looking for earth-shattering explosions and heart-thumping bass will have to look elsewhere, but the Sonos Beam is a great sounding, easy-to-use compact soundbar that’s a jack-of-all-trades and very easy to live with, particularly in smaller rooms or apartments.

Pros: compact and attractive, gran, room-filling sound whether TV or music, easy set up, Alexa, easy to add to with more speakers

Cons: relativamente caro, ningún baixo-axitando cuarto, ocupa unha porta na súa TV, sen HDMI paso, Non hai soporte para Dolby Atmos
