Sonos Beam Gen 2 Height

With a Sonos Beam Gen 2 height of 69mm, it can also be placed under some smart televisions quite comfortably. From my observation it is no problem to be include under the Sony, Samsung, Prism+ and Huawei televisions that are in the Amanz AV studio now. With space usage being important, the Beam Gen 2 is among the easiest to use in the living room due to its fairly compact size.


One thing that those interested in buying the Sonos Beam Gen 2 should know is that it only supports audio tethering using WiFI and HMDI eARC connectivity. No direct tethering using bluetooth or regular audio cables. The reason may be because Sonos is a soundbar for listening to premium level audio and bluetooth as well as regular cables cannot provide the emperor audio experience. To enjoy Dolby Atmos audio you also need to make sure your television supports HMDI eARC connection. Without eARC support, support audio formats are limit to Dolby Digital 5.1 only.

The process of activating the Beam Gen 2 for the first time I found was much easier on Apple devices. It’s faster and easier to add services like Apple Music into an app. Overall the process of activating the soundbar for the first time takes about 5 minutes. This is my issue with all “smart devices” right now. Everything has to go through the Sonos account registration process and requires the Internet. Without the Internet you can’t use the Beam Gen 2; because like I said earlier there is no regular bluetooth and wired support.

This is the sacrifice that needs to be made when entering a smart ecosystem. After everything is done Beam Gen 2 no longer comes any problems. In the Amanz lab, a 65 ″ Samsung QN900A Neo QLED 8K television; and a 32 ″ Smart Monitor M7 monitor I used to test the Beam Gen 2. This was to see if the process of connecting a soundbar gadget was consistent on a RM20,000 television and a RM2000 smart monitor.
