The Sonos Arc is around the corner, but it disappoints in some way.
First of all the front is made out of plastic! Plastic - seriously 😒 so it is a long plastic tube, not the nice metal we are used to from Play one and play:5.
Second of all the Dolby Atmos sound is not very impressive. Sony, LG and Samsung has better Dolby Atmos Soundbars out there since 2018 and comes with a cheaper price tag.
So the Sonos Arc are beaten by 2 year old products from Sony and Samsung.
And third of all rhe Arc can't decode Atmos sound. So you have to rely on your TV to do it for you. So you need a brand new TV preferable with eARC and Dolby Atmos decoding in order to send the right signal to the soundbar.
But on the good side the vocals are better on the Arc compared to the playbar.
