Hi,
I recently bought Sonos Move and I’m really astounded by its sound quality. I use this speaker literally in every room in my flat. Now I’m considering buying Sonos Beam to improve my TV sound quality. The only thing I’m concern about is the loudness level of the Beam. I read some opinions that it’s not loud enough for some people.
Does anyone has got both speakers and can compare their max volume level? For example, the max volume of Beam is about 60% of Move, etc..
Second questions, how would you compare sound quality for both speakers? I know it might hard because it’s a different sound system, but just give your personal feeling about it.

Thanks in advance.
