The Sonos Beam Gen 2 is a Dolby Atmos version of the brilliant original Beam soundbar

Sonos has announced a next-generation version of the What Hi-Fi? Award-winning Sonos Beam. The big news is that the Beam Gen 2, which will launch next month, adds support for Dolby Atmos, as well as enhanced processing power and eARC connectivity.
