Sonos deals are never a given – even on Black Friday and Cyber Monday – so it was of little surprise that the new Beam Dolby Atmos soundbar was given only a modest, £20 discount across several retailers for Black Friday. But as Black Friday turns into Cyber Monday, the Sonos Beam Gen 2 has actually dropped further in price. Congratulations if you waited (and commiserations if you didn't).
Yes, the new Beam is still now £50 off at Richer Sounds. That makes one of our favourite soundbars just £399. It's some soundbar deal – the saving even puts it in line with the current discounted price of the original Beam.
If you have a bigger budget and want more serious Sonos Dolby Atmos soundbar action, may we point you to this seriously good Sonos Arc Cyber Monday deal.

We loved the original Sonos Beam when it arrived in 2018, but this recently launched successor is even better – and our favourite soundbar under £500, as its What Hi-Fi? Award goes to show.
The Beam Gen 2 arrived earlier this year to up the ante on the original, more processing power opening up the door to immersive Dolby Atmos audio processing. There's also eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) connectivity, which means the latest Beam can handle the most advanced type of Atmos signal. Perhaps most importantly, the Beam Gen 2 sounds better too. Atmos aside, it reaches deeper depths than the Beam Gen 1, with greater refinement, a warmer treble, and wider dynamic range. (Here's our detailed comparison of the Sonos Beam Gen 2 vs Sonos Beam Gen 1).
All in all, it's an excellent buy and one of the very best soundbar deals live right now.
