Arc represents Sonos’ most immersive home cinema experience. With smart, adaptable, cinema-quality sound, support for Dolby Atmos, and multiple voice assistants, Arc sets a new standard for premium home cinema sound.
According to the press release, Sonos Arc is a premium smart soundbar, delivering an ultra-wide soundstage and impressive bass. Eleven high-performance drivers, including two that are firing upwards for 3D audio, produce dramatic clarity, detail, and depth, the company says. Tuned in partnership with Oscar-winning mixing engineers, Arc adjusts its sound profile through software, based on the home cinema set-up and what’s playing, whether stereo, Dolby Audio 5.1, or Dolby Atmos.
Listeners can refine Arc’s sound in the Sonos app with features including Speech Enhancement to further clarify vocals, Night Sound to temper loud explosions, and an update to Sonos’ Trueplay tuning technology, adjusting Arc’s acoustic profile based on the room, accounting for horizontal and vertical sound that comes with immersive sound.
Arc, available in matte black and matte white, features a 270-degree rounded plastic grille and a calm, seamless exterior for multi-dimensional sound that elegantly fits within the home. Set Arc in front of a standing TV or mount to the wall with a separate custom-designed wall mount. A simple connection through HDMI eARC or ARC keeps set-up simple.
Built on Sonos’ next generation S2 software platform, control Arc from the new Sonos app, an existing TV remote, Apple AirPlay 2, and with voice using Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant.
Arc replaces Playbar and Playbase in the Sonos line-up and will be available globally on 10 June.
