Sonos Beam FAQs

Sonos Beam FAQs

Q: What’s the difference between Beam (Gen 1) and Beam (Gen 2)?

A: The new Beam offers new technology which improves the sound experience, along with an updated premium design. The new Beam (Gen 2) features support for Dolby Atmos, a more powerful CPU, an improved phased array and HDMI eARC compatibility for a richer, more immersive sound experience. 

Q: How does the new Beam support Dolby Atmos with the same acoustic architecture as the first generation?

A: With a 40% faster CPU, the new Beam features radically improved speaker arrays -  the software that coordinates the playback and interaction across all of Beam’s transducers. The new Beam features 5 speaker arrays, compared with 3 in Gen 1. The 2 new arrays are dedicated to surround and height information and apply time and frequency-based psychoacoustic techniques to provide separation between ear level and overhead audio.

Q: Why did you update the grille on the new Beam?

A: Beam’s polycarbonate grille is precisely perforated and allows the speaker to sound great and blend seamlessly into your home, just like the premium Sonos Arc. The new grille also makes the product easier to clean and less susceptible to wear over time. 

Q: What are Amazon Music Ultra HD and Dolby Atmos Music, and which Sonos products will support them?

A: Launching later this year in select markets, Sonos plans to support Amazon Music’s Ultra High Definition audio, which will allow listeners to hear tracks in lossless audio up to 24-bit / 48kHz on their Sonos speakers, as well as Dolby Atmos Music, an immersive audio format that breaks the boundaries of traditional studio recordings and puts you inside the song, revealing every detail of the music. 

Sonos products that will support Amazon Music Ultra HD on S2 include Roam, Beam, Arc, Five, Sub (Gen 3), Move, One, One SL, Port, Amp, SYMFONISK Bookshelf, SYMFONISK Table Lamp, Play:5 (Gen 2), Connect (Gen 2), and Connect:Amp (Gen 2).

Products that will support Dolby Atmos Music are Arc and Beam (Gen 2).
