I bought my Sonos Arc in August and had to wait 25 days to get it but I love it and it's by far the best soundbar on the market. Here are the pros and cons:
1. Great sound for movies, music, gaming and sports. I've owned top of the line soundbars by other brands but they all had one flaw...they sound bad playing music. The Arc makes music sound full and clean at any volume level. The Arc also makes the vocals on movies sound very clear...other soundbars struggle with that.
2. It's long but also compact but it gets LOUD. I have mine setup in an open area living room with high ceilings and the Arc is able to fill the room with sound. I rarely get the volume level over 50% when watching a movie or streaming music. The overall look on my TV stand is minimalist and blends very nicely.
3. Dolby Atmos lives up to the hype. I stream movies on my Apple TV 4K and you can feel the bubble surround effect from Dolby Atmos content on Apple Movies, Netflix, and Disney Plus.
4. Easy to setup and software updates keep the Arc at peek performance. There is only one wire for power and an HDMI to the TV and then you follow the setup instructions on the Sonos app. I had sound and was good to go in under 10 minutes. A cool bonus is the Arc uses your TV remote to control the volume or you can use the app to control the volume and adjust the settings.
1. You need a newer TV with an HDMI ARC input to get Dolby Atmos. If you don't have a TV with that feature I'd suggest getting the Sonos Beam instead and saving some money until you do own a newer TV.
2. The Arc isn't cheap and I'd highly recommend getting the Sonos subwoofer especially for real bass and a much better sound profile for movies and music. For the full theater experience I'd also recommend the Sonos Ones. The upgrades aren't cheap but you can build your system as you get the cash to buy more.
Bottomline...the Arc is the best soundbar out right now in 2020. If you want a great soundbar with a high end sound that you can build around then look no further. When family members come to me asking for tech advice on soundbars...the Arc is what I'll be telling them to buy.
I bought this sound-bar in conjunction with the LGCX65 and let me tell you that I don’t think I could be any more impressed. Any situation, at any volume is just concert quality sound. Ability to sync with my Apple Music library is a very nice feature as is the room tuning with the App. (Don’t forget to do this, it literally tunes the system to your room and I was able to notice the difference immediately.). Set up is extremely easy also, I was up and running in about ten minutes. Seamlessly integrated with my TV and Cable box remotes. Not an entry level product at an $800 price point, but this is absolutely a premium product that delivers premium sound. I can’t imagine anyone possibly being disappointed after hearing it.
Who ever want this , go for it, sound is amazing, specially with movies, it makes you feel like you are inside the movie. Its pricey but it worth the money. I will not go with the installation at the wall because first is super heavy and the base for it directly from sonos is also expensive and it will change the noise once is installed with it, on the other hand there is some other "brackets" for it that work almost same way but for me it is heavy for the wall and already have a huge tv at that wall and another on same wall but behind it on the other room. I definitely recommend it, well constructed and quality of sound unbeaten from other soundbars i been testing including Samsung. Only not happy about it is that it doesn't have a remote control so everything has to be on the app.
I have always been a “Bose Guy”. My first speakers were 601s I got when I re-enlisted in the Marines. No more. This Sonos Sound Bar is amazing. I even got the woofer and SL Ones as surround speakers. Incredibly easy set up with the Sonos app. Adapts to your space. Forced me to get a new TV so I could take advantage of the Dolby Atmos sound. Fantastic system!
Overall I'm really pleased with the sound of the Sonos Arc. I was in search of a more all in one audio solution for my living room. While it doesn't sound as good as separates, it's a small compromise, because it really does sound great. I paired it with the Sonos Sub, which is also awesome.
It sounds amazing with the whole Sonos set! It's easy to set up and it has a lot of convenient features to use. It's totally customizable, from adding surround speakers to adding a subwoofer for more effect. It's pricey, but definitely worth it!
I have been a long time Sonos junkie since my first purchaseof a Beam. At first the Beam worked well in my space but after some remodelingand the removal of a wall I needed something with more power. I held off on thePlaybar simply because of the rumors of an update and pre-ordered this SonosArc as soon as it was available.
First the appearance:This thing is beautiful. With a very modern styling, drilled grill wrapped around the internals this thing is the only piece in my room that gives my LG C9 a run for it's money in appearance. This styling fits in line with all the newest Sonos products on the market today. The Arc is also very wide which is why it is recommended for TVs over 50" (pictured with my 65" LG C9)
Weighing in at almost 14 pounds, this soundbar and all its components exude quality. Inside are three tweeters (for higher end sound) and eight woofers for mid-range and bass. What is great and new about this product is that 4 of these drivers aim directly at you while 2 aim out the sides and 2 fire sound upward. This enables Arc to give you sound in all directions, including above you. This addition of upfiring speakers enables the Arc to sound effects for any movies/content coded with Dolby Atmos.
Setup is easy just like other Sonos products (opened the app, add product and the Arc was instantly recognized). After setting it in place I tuned thru TruePlay (a must do in my opinion) to get the room setup and tuned with my Sonos Sub and Play:1 Surround speakers. Even during the tuning I noticed how well the Arc bounced those sounds off the walls to create the left and right front speaker sounds I felt were lacking with the Beam. First movie I fired up was The Rise of Skywalker and sure enough in the opening scene three Tie Fighters buzzed directly over our heads and made my fiance jump.
For this this next portion please make sure to note the difference when talking about the Sonos Arc (not all capitalized) and the HDMI eARC and ARC ports (fully capitalized). This can cause confusion. In order to get lossless Atmos you must make sure you have an Atmos enabled TV with eARC HDMI ports. If your TV only has ARC HDMI you can still get Atmos but it will not be in its full lossless format, it will be compressed Atmos. All this of course is under the assumption that your content is Atmos. You will know it is working if you pull up your Sonos app and click on the room your Arc is in and will see the "Dolby Atmos" symbol listed under the TV. For my setup I have an Apple TV 4K connected to my LG C9, and the Sonos Arc is connected via the eARC HDMI port.
Listening to sound for music, the Arc is a significant upgrade over the Beam but that should be a given based on the size, power, and quantity of speaker differences between the two. While the sound is great I do not know if I would stop using my Play:5 in the same room for just music, only for parties/gatherings in which the surround and bass speakers would help fill the room more.
For my purposes I use Google Assistant and the far field mics caught my voice easily even while sound was playing from the speaker and a medium volume.
While a big jump from the Beam pricing and $100 more than it's predecessor, the Arc delivers. While you can get soundbars for under $150, this one is the cream of the crop and is worth the price tag if you can afford. Sonos's ease of use and seamless streaming technology already shine above a lot of it's competitors but the addition of this new Arc soundbar puts them ahead of everyone else in soundbar tech and makes it the soundbar to beat. The Arc is an outstanding speaker and should be the first choice when wanting to convert just a TV into a a surround system in a medium to large sized room.

Sonos has finally given us an upgrade to the Playbar, and it's impressive. The Arc has an improved design, modern features and stellar sound. Like the Beam, it only has one HDMI port, which will be an issue for some. However, if you have a TV thatFull Review

Sonos Arc review
The Sonos Arc ($799) is premium in every sense — with its precise tuning software and Dolby Atmos support, it's the best soundbar for Sonos fans who can afford it.Full Review
A:AnswerThe Sonos Arc WILL deliver Dolby Atmos sound through an older Arc HDMI connection. It's done via lossy Dolby Digital Plus,. but the sound is indeed Atmos and it sounds great. Is an eArc connection better, I'd say yes. But you don't need to get a new TV with eArc just yet as long as you have an Arc HDMI port.
A:AnswerYes you can using the Sonos App. It uses WiFi instead of Bluetooth, which is better as you won’t hear those anyone disruptions when you get a text or message. You can also link your Music services and stream directly from them, you’ll love that feature with Spotify.
A:AnswerThe Arc's upfiring speakers are at a (approx.) 70 degree angle up from the forward facing front speakers. You will likely need to give enough clearance between the TV (recommended 4 inches) or have the Arc pushed far up enough that the TV or shelf does not obstruct the sound from those speakers
A:AnswerThe Sonos Arc will work with any television that can output sound through either digital optical (with the included adapter) or HDMI ARC. You would not receive Atmos through the digital optical port as that port can not send Atmos codecs. You would still receive Dolby Digital surround sound and the Arc would use the entire array of speakers to make that sound incredible!
A:AnswerHi, and thanks for your question. It is possible that this could severely decrease your sound quality, as the front speakers are pointed straight forward, and the atmos speakers are pointed up. However, every room environment is different so it's difficult to say how much it will impact your experience.
A:AnswerOwning a 2019 75” Q70R, the Sonos ARC works for me. When using apps such as VUDU where 4K content w/Atmos is stored, the Atmos symbol is displayed on the info screen. You need to go into sound settings of the tv and select the Sonos ARC which shows up as Reciever (HDMI). This is provided you have the Sonos ARC powered and wired in using the HDMI ARC jack of your TV or in the case of some newer sets, the HDMI E-ARC. That is all you have to do to make it work from your TV. Afterwards set up the Sonos ARC using the new Sonos app and your good to go. I did not choose my my TV knowing the Sonos was going to be added but it just so happens to tuck in perfectly between the feet. The sound is great coming from the sound bar but we utilize the The Gen 3 sub and a pair of Sonos 1s for extra bass and surround channels.
