Blockbuster sound

Get ready to be blown away

Experience clearer, more powerful sound than ever before possible by a small standalone soundbar.

All about balance

Enjoy stereo sound that's just right. The custom acoustics precisely harmonize high and mid-range frequencies while proprietary anti-distortion technology produces perfectly weighted bass.

Crisp Dialogue

Never miss a word. Fine-tuned with help from award-winning Hollywood sound engineers, Ray ensures you can always follow the story.

Bring the drama

Feel like you're at the centre of it all. Split waveguides project sound from wall to wall, and advanced processing accurately positions elements in the room.

Tuned to perfection

Trueplay tuning technology adapts the sound for the unique acoustics of your space so content always sounds just the way it should.

Supported iOS device required.

Designed to be tucked away

All the acoustic elements face forward to minimise interference from nearby surfaces so, even if you place it in your TV stand, Ray always sounds phenomenal.

Nothing gets in the way of your entertainment

The compact and understated design seamlessly blends into your home and won’t pull focus from what’s happening on screen.

Zero-stress setup

Go from unboxing to unbelievable sound in minutes. Just plug in the power cable, connect your TV, and open the Sonos app. It does most of the work for you.

Works with your TV

Connect Ray to virtually any TV, and use your existing remote to control the sound. For a next-level gaming setup, connect your PC.

Can I mount Ray?

Yes. We recommend using the Sonos Ray Wall Mount.(Coming soon)

What is the best placement for Ray?

All of the acoustic components face forward for maximum versatility. Ray can be mounted, placed on top of furniture, or tucked into an enclosed shelf of your TV stand. We recommend at least 5 mm of space between the edges and any surrounding surfaces.

Which Sonos speakers work as surrounds?

A matching pair of the following speakers will work as surrounds: Sonos One (including SL), Sonos Five, Play:1, Play:3, and Play:5 (Gen 2). You can also use Sonos Amp to power in-wall, in-ceiling, or other passive speakers as surrounds.

Can I connect a subwoofer to Ray?

Ray is compatible with all generations of Sonos Sub. The soundbar will not work with a third-party subwoofer.

How do I know if my TV has optical output?

Most TVs from major manufacturers have an optical connection. You should be able to find a port on the back of your TV, labelled either Optical Audio, TOSLINK, Digital Audio Out, or something similar. This information should also be available in your TV's manual.

What's the difference between optical and HDMI eARC?

Both optical and HDMI eARC connections transmit multi-channel audio from a TV to a soundbar.

Optical is available on most TVs and supports surround sound with up to 5.1 channels. Because this type of connection does not pass remote control commands, Ray receives volume and mute commands from a TV remote using IR (infrared) technology. Check the specifications of your TV model to confirm IR remote and optical capabilities.

HDMI eARC provides higher bandwidth and supports 7.1 channel surround sound as well as high-resolution formats, including Dolby Atmos and Dolby Digital Plus. This type of connection also uses CEC technology to pass remote control commands.

Can I stream using Bluetooth?

Ray does not have Bluetooth connectivity but streams audio content over your WiFi network. Internet access allows you to stream higher fidelity audio over greater distances, group or pair Sonos speakers, and more.

Can I use voice control with Ray?

You can use Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant with a compatible device, such as Sonos One, Amazon Echo Dot, or Google Nest Mini. While streaming with AirPlay 2, you can use Siri on your iOS device to control Apple Music.

Can I use the Sonos S1 Controller app with Ray?

Ray requires the latest generation of the Sonos app, Sonos S2. Learn more
