Sonos Beam – Hear every word clearly
Setup is simple
Sonos Beam Features
- You can mount Beam to a wall above or below your TV or place it on a credenza.
- Use the HDMI cable to connect the soundbar to your TV. You may need the optical adapter too (the app lets you know).
- HDMI ARC is a special port that looks like a standard HDMI port. Although they look the same, if you connect to a standard HDMI port, you won’t hear sound.
- If you’ve installed a voice service and the microphone is off, you can still use voice commands. Just press and hold while talking to Alexa—no need to start with a wake word. When you release the mic button, voice control turns off again.
