Sonos Beam vs Sony HT-X9000F

Sonos Beam review

Conducting the Sonos Beam vs Sony HT-X9000F comparison I has a chance to make a closer look at the top surface. It shows that the soundbar has a slightly concave shape, with rounded outer edges. According to the Sonos designers, this form was created specifically to hide two LED indicators and controls. At the rear of the Sonos Beam is an HDMI port with ARC support, which had not previously been installed on other products of the company. Using this port, you can control some functions of the TV, including the volume using voice commands. There are 3.0 built-in channels. Sonos Beam

Sony HT-X9000F review

Comparing Sony HT-X9000F vs Sonos Beam I found out that the Sony HT-X9000F is a 2.1-channel soundbar with support for Dolby Atmos/DTS: X and Vertical Surround Engine technology that blends perfectly with BRAVIA TVs not only in quality but also in design. With the Sony HT-X9000 Vertical Surround Engine, the latest surround sound technology, you can enjoy the thrill of the latest audio formats in movie theaters such as Dolby Atmos and DTS: X in one slim package. No matter what room you are in, the three front speakers reproduce “vertical”, creating a virtual surround sound that seems to come from you. Sony HT-X9000F also supports Wi-Fi, so after updating the firmware, its owner can use the multi-user audio stream, built-in Chromecast and Google Assistant. Sony HT-X9000F
