Sonos Beam review

Connecting and installing the soundbar to compare Sonos Beam vs Bose Soundbar 700 is quick and easy: we unpack it, connect the electric and HDMI cables, place the device directly in front of the TV. To hang the soundbar on the wall, you will have to buy a separate bracket. If your TV does not have an HDMI output, but has ARC (Audio Return Channel), an adapter with HDMI to the optical audio cable that comes with it is useful. The soundbar has a built-in Alexa voice assistant from Amazon, which is also configured through the app. Sonos Beam can be set to control the soundbar volume using the TV’s remote control, regardless of how the device is connected to the TV. There are 3.0 built-in channels. Sonos Beam
