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 2020 Sonos Arc is a decent overall soundbar. This standalone soundbar can be easily upgraded in the future with a wireless subwoofer and surround satellites ...

Upgradable setup. Sleek and very well-built design. Room Correction feature. Atmos support.

Lots of bass compression at max volume. No Bluetooth support. No full EQ. No DTS support. Lack of bass.

The Sonos Arc soundbar is a pretty straightforward bar that doesn't seem to excel at anything but can do an okay job at everything. The speaker configuration from the bar itself allows for a wide soundstage, but it lacks some bass, resulting in an...

Sonos Arc review

 

Sonos's first Dolby Atmos soundbar is an absolute belter

Convincing Dolby Atmos ; Dynamic, detailed and weighty ; All of the usual Sonos smarts

Music could be better projected ; Heavily reliant on your TV’s specs

Simple to set up, lovely to live with and supremely capable, the Sonos Arc is a soundbar of rare quality

Sonos Arc review: Dolby Atmos soundbar delivers big sound

 

With the Playbar released over seven years ago, a replacement is long overdue. Behold the Sonos Arc - a Dolby Atmos soundbar for a new generation.

Great Dolby Atmos performance ; Excellent sound even without extra height channels ; Alexa and Google Assistant on board ; Easy to setup and integrate with Sonos multiroom solution

Requires compatible TV for Dolby Atmos support ; No source input ; Only single-band (2.4GHz) Wi-Fi

Sonos has not only followed up its previous full-fledged soundbar offering, it has improved it in every way possible. The Arc is a superb Dolby Atmos soundbar – right up there with the best – and has all the bells and whistles of Sonos' multi-room...

Sonos Arc review

 

“Sonos finally gets around to inventing Dolby Atmos”

Wide, tall sound ; Impressive bass response ; Adept with music as well as movies ; Cracking control app (even in beta)

Treble has attitude ; Slightly uneven frequency response ; No MQA support

At last, Sonos is able to give you the big-screen sound to go with those big-screen pictures.

Sonos Arc

 

With Dolby Atmos support and various smart features like eARC, the Sonos Arc is the premium soundbar to beat

Sonos Arc review: Ahead of the curve

 

Superbly composed and balanced sound but the Arc is hamstrung by its lack of inputs

Great sound quality ; Easy to use and set up ; Google Assistant and Alexa support

Slightly bright sound ; Only one HDMI connection

In fairness, the Sonos Arc sounds great with or without eARC, but when other soundbars in this price bracket, such as the impressive Samsung HW-Q80R, have no such limitations, it’s hard to recommend the Arc above them.
