Our top equipment picks
Small but mighty
Don't let its size fool you.
The Roam is the smallest and most affordable speaker Sonos has made to date, and it's an easy one to like. Its portability is unparalleled within Sonos' product lineup, and that only makes it easier to appreciate having an Alexa smart speaker nearby at all times. It seamlessly connects with all other Sonos devices and sounds great for its size.
For your home theater
Plenty of soundbar for less space.
TV soundbars abound out there, but the Sonos Beam is a cut above when you consider what it can do for its size. It sounds fabulous, and when you pair it with two Sonos Ones for wireless 5.1 surround sound, plus a Sonos Sub for extra bass, you've got a solid setup. Set up the Beam as a smart speaker with Alexa, and you're ready to go.
