Sonos Arc Soundbar comes in the price tag of USD 800 more than in the United State. It seems that it’s not a cheap price but when Sonos Arc Soundbar rings the bells so then its seems to be worth it. It’s the first time that the sonos company added Atoms compatibility to its soundbar lineup so far.

An another intresting thing about Sonos Arc Soundbar is that they do not come with the subwoofer or satellite speakers but the company had upgraded the system  and provided the user to add the options separately.

The overall package of Sonos Arc Soundbar looks pretty decent but the lack of subwoofer is rising a question on the performance of the soundbars because the availability of the sub bass woofer is preferred by most of the users.

The weight of Sonos Arc Soundbar is about 6.25 kg which is a pretty dissent weight but it stretches about 45x 3.4 x4.5 inches which is almost the width of a 55 inches T.V so it is pretty difficult to adjust them together.

But its okay because Sonos Arc Soundbar have any ability that they can be mounted on the wall and because of its pretty descant shape Sonos Arc Soundbar mounted on the wall looks very awesome . Sonos Arc Soundbar also have an important feature that they automatically adjusts the frequency range of its sound to avoid providing awkward noises.

The shell of the sounbar perforated and matte and the company logo is in a very classy and a cool color combo of black and white which provides a more descant and charming look to the Sonos Arc Soundbar.

Sonos Arc Soundbar have an excellent loudness but when it raises from 75 percent the way it handle the loudness and struggle is a shame because all the vocals are mixed up  because of which all the sound experience is affected very badly which do not make a good impact on the user because of the creeping and annoying voice produced by the Sonos Arc Soundbar. And the bass area is on of the part in Sonos Arc Soundbar that suffers the most and is affected the most when the volume raises above 75 percent.
