Sonos Arc review: A solid soundbar for the Dolby Atmos era


The $799 Arc is Sonos' first Dolby Atmos-capable soundbar, fulfilling years of customer requests. Now that it's here, does it deliver? Here's our full review.

Excellent surround sound ; Easy and simple setup ; Decent Dolby Atmos from a single speaker ; Choice of Alexa or Google Assistant

No HDMI inputs ; Not ideal for all music genres

Sonos Arc review: An upgrade worth the wait


Sonos has finally given us an upgrade to the Playbar, and it's impressive. The Arc has an improved design, modern features and stellar sound. Like the Beam, it only has one HDMI port, which will be an issue for some. However, if you have a TV that...

Stellar sound for music and TV ; Dolby Atmos ; Automatically adjusts to content and additional speakers

A single HDMI input ; Expansion gets pricey quickly ; Sound favors treble at high volumes

Sonos Arc Review


Large sound field with powerful bass, even without a subwoofer ; Supports Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant ; Can easily be expanded with satellites and a subwoofer ; Dolby Atmos compatibility with angled tweeters

Expensive ; Only works with pricey Sonos subwoofer

The impressive Sonos Arc takes the best parts of the company's other soundbars and combines them into one Dolby Atmos-compatible package.

If you're looking for a soundbar with voice assistants, multiroom music and other features, the Arc will float your boat.

Sonos Arc Review: Dolby Atmos in the soundbar we’ve been waiting for


The problem with making things look easy, Sonos has discovered, is that peoples' wish-lists only ever get longer. The new Sonos Arc is a textbook example: on the face of it a simple response to the question "Where's the Sonos Dolby Atmos soundbar?" it...

Excellent audio quality for TV and music ; Handsome design should blend into most decor ; Trueplay auto-tuning takes the pain out of EQ setup ; Sounds even better with easily-added wireless rear speakers

The Dolby Atmos ecosystem is frustratingly patchy ; Only compatible with other speakers running Sonos S2 ; Can't add dedicated overhead speakers for Atmos

Sonos Arc Review


The Sonos Arc is a good overall soundbar from 2020. This standalone soundbar can be easily upgraded into the Sonos Arc with Sub + One SL Speakers with the additi...

Great stereo soundstage. Room correction feature available. Sleek and very well-built design. Low audio latency. Supports Atmos.

Compression artifacts at max volume. No Bluetooth support. No full EQ. No DTS support.

The Sonos Arc is good for mixed use. It has a neutral, although slightly bright sound profile that's suitable for most audio content. It can reproduce clear and accurate dialogue, it can get loud, and it supports Atmos content, which is nice if you...

Sonos Arc Soundbar Review


The latest home theater offering from Sonos delivers an impressive Atmos experience from a standalone soundbar. Add the company's Sub and bookshelf speakers as surrounds for even more intense audio immersion.

Outstanding music and movie sound; Impressive rendering of height information; Solid bass for standalone soundbar

May require latest eARC HDMI connection for Atmos; No DTS decoding

Review: Sonos Arc is the Dolby Atmos companion your Apple TV 4K needs | AppleInsider


Sonos is shipping the Dolby Atmos Arc soundbar, and with a living room in need of audio finesse, so we picked one up to put it to the test with our Apple TV 4K.

Incredible sound and precision Dolby Atmos ; Substantial bass, even without additional sub ; HomeKit and AirPlay 2 support ; Sleek design ; eARC is more future-proofed ; Runs Sonos S2 ; Smart features like IR repeater and auto-dimming LED

Best support is dependant on TV specs ; May be too large for smaller TVs ; Larger open rooms may not result in the best surround experience

Sonos Arc review


The Sonos Arc ($799) is premium in every sense — with its precise tuning software and Dolby Atmos support, it's the best soundbar for Sonos fans who can afford it.

if you want a premium smart soundbar for a small or mid-size room. It costs less at $499, too. But for serious Sonos fans with whole-home systems, the Arc will prove itself worthwhile.
