The Sonos Ray Is The New Cheaper Sonos Soundbar

Sonos has announced the Sonos Ray which is its brand new budget soundbar that will set you back $399 when it launches on June 7th. You can pre-order it HERE.

The Sonos Ray has many of the Sonos features we’ve come to know and love over the years, including Airplay 2 functionality as well as Sonos enhancements such as speech enhancement and night mode, plus connectivity seamlessly with the rest of your Sonos ecosystem.

The main differences between the Sonos Beam 2 (which retails for $599) are the fact that it doesn’t have HDMI support, opting only for an optical port and there’s no Dolby Atmos support, which isn’t a huge surprise considering the price difference. .

While the Sonos Beam 2 was noticeably different from the original, I would expect the Sonos Ray to be very good value for money, in terms of setup and getting great sound out of the box. out of the box.

The Sonos Ray will launch on June 7 and is available in black and white. You can pre-order it HERE.
