Sonos introduces Arc, the Premium Smart Soundbar

With smart, adaptable, cinema-quality sound, and support Dolby Atmos, Arc sets a new standard for premium home theatre sound

Sonos Arc, the premium smart soundbar that brings immersive, cinema-quality sound to homes around the world. Arc builds on Sonos’ industry-leading innovations in home theatre, with software-driven audio that immerses listeners in dramatic detail, crystal clear dialogue and impressive bass, featuring support for Dolby Atmos®. More than a soundbar, Arc brings brilliant sound to anything you can stream, tuned for what’s playing from the TV to music, podcasts and radio when the TV is off. Powered by Sonos’ new sound experience platform, Arc makes powerful home theatre easy with unrivalled choice in what to listen to, how to control, with the option to expand the system. Arc is available now for HKD7,899. 

“Home has never played a more important role in our lives and we’ve always been about making the home more enjoyable with great sounding products and new experiences. Arc brings the sounds of our favourite shows and artists to life like never before,” said Patrick Spence, Sonos CEO. “Our goal is to make any room you have a television a place you can easily enjoy all of the great streaming video and music that exists today. Arc illustrates our commitment to brilliant sound and premium design and sets a new standard for soundbars.”

Meet Sonos Arc

Award-winning shows and movies are being streamed in homes around the world, now in even higher resolution sound. Today, more than 25 video streaming services and TV providers are serving Dolby Atmos content, making powerful home theatre experiences more accessible in the living room.

Sonos Arc is a premium, smart soundbar, delivering an ultra-wide soundstage and impressive bass. Eleven high-performance drivers, including two that are upward firing for 3D audio, produce dramatic clarity, detail, and depth. Tuned in partnership with Oscar-winning mixing engineers, Arc adjusts its sound profile through software, based on the home theatre set-up and what’s playing, whether stereo, Dolby Audio 5.1, or Dolby Atmos.

Listeners can refine Arc’s sound in the Sonos app with features including Speech Enhancement to further clarify vocals, Night Sound to temper loud explosions, and an update to Sonos’ Trueplay tuning technology, adjusting Arc’s acoustic profile based on the room, accounting for horizontal and vertical sound that comes with immersive sound.

Arc, available in matte black and matte white, features a 270-degree rounded plastic grille and a calm, seamless exterior for multi-dimensional sound that elegantly fits within the home. Set Arc in front of a standing TV or mount to the wall with a separate custom designed wall mount. A simple connection through HDMI eARC or ARC keeps set-up simple.

Built on Sonos’ next generation S2 software platform, control Arc from the new Sonos app, an existing TV remote, Apple AirPlay 2, and with voice using Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant.

While Arc delivers powerful, cinematic sound on its own, adding Sonos Sub and a pair of One SL surrounds offers an even more immersive experience. Arc replaces Playbar and Playbase in the Sonos line-up and is available globally for HKD7,899 on trysonos.hk and through participating retailers.
