The Sonos Ray is perfect as an entry-level $399 3.0 soundbar, though its capabilities belie its compact size.
That’s why our full review calls the Sonos Ray a little doy with a big bark!
It’s all about convenience. It is small enough to be placed almost anywhere; features an optical digital connection for maximum compatibility with older TVs; and you can use it without the Sonos S2 app – true plug and play.
This compact, easy-to-use soundbar delivers precise, balanced sound, including crisp dialogue and solid bass. Sonos’ neutral sound signature beats every other compact soundbar we’ve used.
Its forward-facing design gives it great sound even in an enclosed space, like a shelf on your TV stand.
The app’s multi-room audio feature is also one of the easiest to use on the market. With speakers all over the house, nobody misses out.
Who is the Sonos Ray soundbar for?
Sonos knows that most people don’t watch Dolby Atmos content regularly – you don’t need that immersive format support to enjoy high-quality sound on your TV.
It’s for a new Sonos audience that wants an all-in-one mini soundbar with plenty of volume and a very listenable warm and smooth sound signature. So this is for those who live in apartments, for the bedroom TV, gamers, those who don’t have a Dolby Atmos TV, who want a stylish multi-room speaker with all the features of the Dolby Atmos. Sonos S2 app.
And current Sonos owners won’t be disappointed either.
