How is Beam (Gen 2) different from Beam (Gen 1)?
Beam (Gen 2) features a faster processor and HDMI eARC connection, both of which enable support for higher resolution audio formats, including Dolby Atmos. This increased processing power also gives Beam (Gen 2) five speaker arrays compared to the first generation's three speaker arrays. The design has been updated with a new grille, monochromatic finish and colour-matched cord.
Can I mount Beam?
Yes. We recommend using the Sonos Beam Wall Mount.
Which Sonos speakers work as surrounds?
A matching pair of the following speakers will work as surrounds: Era 300, Era 100, Sonos One (including SL), Sonos Five, Play:1, Play:3, and Play:5 (Gen 2). You can also use Sonos Amp to power in-wall, in-ceiling, or other passive speakers as surrounds.
Which generations of Sub will work with Beam (Gen 2)?
All generations of Sub will work with Beam (Gen 2).
What is HDMI eARC?
eARC stands for enhanced Audio Return Channel. It allows full-resolution sound signals, including Dolby Atmos, to be passed from your TV to the soundbar.
Will Beam (Gen 2) work with my voice assistant?
What is Dolby Atmos?
Dolby Atmos is an object-based format for surround sound that designates different sounds to specific places in the room rather than channels, creating a more realistic experience by dynamically incorporating height, surround, and front channels.
How do I know if I'm getting Dolby Atmos?
Dolby Atmos is dependent on the source material as well as the TV passing an Atmos signal through the HDMI port. If the soundbar is receiving an Atmos signal, this will be displayed on the Now Playing screen and Settings menu in the Sonos app.
Do I need surrounds and a subwoofer for Dolby Atmos?
No. Adding surrounds and a subwoofer will provide the best sound experience, but you can still enjoy Atmos with Beam (Gen 2) as a standalone soundbar.
Does Beam (Gen 2) work with Apple TV 4K?
Yes. Beam (Gen 2) will support Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Atmos content with an Apple TV 4K. For Dolby Atmos content, Apple TV 4K uses a high bandwidth format known as MAT and requires an eARC-capable TV. Some Dolby-certified TVs can convert Apple TV 4K Atmos content to an ARC-compatible format. Check with your TV manufacturer for compatibility.
