Cyber Monday is over for another year, but some of the best deals appear to be hanging around – including the best Sonos Beam (Gen 2) price. The Dolby Atmos soundbar is now even cheaper than it was on Black Friday!
The Sonos Beam (Gen 2) is a 2022 What Hi-Fi? Award-winner that delivers a polished virtual Dolby Atmos effect at an affordable price. Indeed, we called it "one of our favourite soundbars under £500".

The latest offering from Sonos impressed us with its exceptional and immersive Dolby Atmos performance. Being a Sonos product, it also has wi-fi and network streaming onboard, plus compatibility with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
We loved the original Sonos Beam when it arrived in 2018, but its successor is even better. The second-generation Beam (Gen 2) not only lives up to the high bar set by its predecessor but exceeds it by a margin that more than justifies its new feature set and higher cost.
The Beam Gen 2 ups the ante with forward-facing drivers and more processing power, opening up the door to immersive virtual Dolby Atmos audio. There's also eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) connectivity, which means the latest Beam can handle the higher bandwidth Dolby True HD Atmos format.
Atmos aside, it sounds incredible, reaching deeper than the Beam Gen 1 with more refinement, a warmer treble, and wider dynamic range. Where the Beam Gen 1 might skim over certain complex sounds the Gen 2 has a greater capacity to take them on, consistently resulting in a richer, more nuanced and varied listening experience.
If you're in the market for a sub-£500 soundbar, the Sonos Beam (Gen 2) is your best option right now.
