Sonos Ray has been officially launched. The technical details and price were announced at yesterday’s Sonos event.
Sonos Ray extends Sonos speakers!
From June 7th, Sonos wants to offer a cheaper alternative to its previous products. As we know, the Sonos Beam costs 499 euros and the top model Sonos Arc 999 euros. Sonos is now offering a cheaper soundbar. At 299 euros, Sonos Ray is an attractive entry-level option.
The smallest soundbar from Sonos has two tweeters and two mid-range speakers as well as a newly developed bass reflex system. So Sonos wants to deliver powerful sound despite the small design. In addition, the Sonos Ray can be expanded to a home cinema system with two Sonos One. However, without Dolby Atmos. The soundbar has a touch surface for operation.
Sonos Ray saves on some connections, so the soundbar can be connected to the TV with an optical cable. The soundbar also has an infrared receiver. Here’s how you can use your remote control to use the soundbar. The network connection works either via WLAN or via the Ethernet socket.
As I previously reported, the Sonos Ray has no microphones. The soundbar supports AirPlay 2 and multi-room systems. The new soundbar from Sonos will be available from June 7th for 299 euros.
