Ray

£279

New for summer 2022, Ray is Sonos’s smallest soundbar yet, but still delivers powerful and versatile sound for both music and movies.

It’s shorter than Beam by just under 10cm, which could be critical to fitting on your rack/stand and is ideal for smaller TVs and for convenient music streaming. Ray will improve your TV audio, particularly speech and is a great addition to provide better audio for movies, TV and gaming. And Ray is also a music system in it’s own right: easily stream music, radio or podcasts from your phone/tablet.

Dimensions (H x W x D): 7.1 x 55.9 x 9.5 cm
Weight: 1.95kg

Available summer 2022.

Blockbuster sound
Get ready to be blown away.
Experience clearer, more powerful sound than ever before possible by a small standalone soundbar.

All about balance
Enjoy stereo sound that’s just right. The custom acoustics precisely harmonize high and mid-range frequencies while proprietary anti-distortion technology produces perfectly weighted bass.

Crisp dialogue
Never miss a word. Fine-tuned with help from award-winning Hollywood sound engineers, Ray ensures you can always follow the story.

Brings the drama
Feel like you’re at the centre of it all. Split waveguides project sound from wall to wall, and advanced processing accurately positions elements in the room.

Tuned to perfection
Trueplay tuning technology adapts the sound for the unique acoustics of your space so content always sounds just the way it should. Supported iOS device required.

Designed to be tucked away
All the acoustic elements face forward to minimise interference from nearby surfaces so, even if you place it in your TV stand, Ray always sounds phenomenal.

Nothing gets in the way of your entertainment
The compact and understated design seamlessly blends into your home and won’t pull focus from what’s happening on screen.

Zero-stress setup
Go from unboxing to unbelievable sound in minutes. Just plug in the power cable, connect your TV, and open the Sonos app. It does most of the work for you.

Works with your TV
Connect Ray to virtually any TV, and use your existing remote to control the sound. For a next-level gaming setup, connect your PC. TV or PC must have optical output.

Stream your favourites from your favourites
When the TV is off, play music, radio, podcasts, and audiobooks from all your services over WiFi using the Sonos app, Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, and more.* *Voice requires a compatible third-party device, such as Sonos One, Amazon Echo, or Google Nest Home. Availability varies by country and language.

Tailor your home cinema experience with the Sonos app
Turn on Speech Enhancement for even clearer dialogue when characters whisper or the music swells. Turn on Night Sound to reduce the intensity of loud effects when you don’t want to disturb anyone else at home.

No strings attached
Make game days, film nights, and music more immersive when you add a pair of rear speakers for wireless surround sound.

Listen here, there, everywhere
Play your way with speakers in every room. Enjoy TV in the living room while you stream music in the bedroom, and group your system for whole-home listening.
