Setting up a functional home office space/guest bedroom has been a never-ending journey. I was sure I wanted to add a 42" OLED TV to sit beside my computer to serve as a second display (when needed) and as entertainment, but a big uncertainty was finding a sound system to work with it. The room is small, and I wasn’t going to build out a true sound system, so a soundbar became the go-to option. I eventually landed on the Sony HT-A5000, which is admittedly a bit large for the TV and desk it sits on. However, this was before the
Today, Bose® adds another member to its soundbar family, with the release of the Smart Soundbar™ 600. The 600 is a mid-range option for those who want, or require, the simplicity of a soundbar, but demand the immersive soundstage of a surround sound setup. An enhanced movie and TV experience is just the beginning with the Smart Soundbar™ 600, because a plethora of streaming support allows the soundbar to transform your living room
It’s hard to feel inspired when considering the soundbar landscape. In most cases, you simply get a wide, black box that’s designed to sit near your TV. You connect the soundbar to your home entertainment system and expect to be treated to an elevated audio experience—and for the most part, it delivers. If you’re being honest, though, rarely would you expect a soundbar to compete with larger systems that consist of dedicated speakers powered by an A/V receiver. Well, if you want to inject a healthy dose of surprise and excitement into your
From entry level to high end, there’s no shortage of soundbars on the market. Each promises to deliver an elevated audio experience compared to your TV’s built-in speakers. As TVs have gotten thinner over the years, sacrifices have had to be made, and sound quality has often suffered as a result. Thankfully, brands like Bowers & Wilkins, often referred to as B&W, offer solutions that not only you allow you to bypass your TV’s speakers, but let you turn the experience up a notch and enjoy high-resolution multi-channel sound.

When I was asked to test the new 2nd Generation Sonos Beam, I was excited to see how much soundbar technology has advanced since my last review. With its short width, I was concerned it wouldn’t offer as broad a soundstage as my soundbar or the soundbar I reviewed a couple of years ago―which was a 5.1-channel soundbar system―but as you’ll read, I had nothing to worry about. Whether through driver design, positioning, or other technology, the
Sonos is a brand that’s known for breaking the mold, having originally done so by being among the first to offer multi-room speaker interoperability. The company continued to push boundaries when it broke into the home theater realm with its first soundbar products; now, rather than breaking the mold again, it’s taking the design of the original Sonos Beam Soundbar to new dimensions with the new 2nd generation Sonos Beam.
