That Sonos One, the $ 399 Sonos Beam soundbar incorporates Alexa. Not only is this device a high-quality Sonos smart speaker with four full-range woofers, but it also has an HDMI ARMI port (in addition to power and Ethernet ports). This port connects the TV's remote control to the Beam and helps synchronize the speaker with the TV. At 26 inches wide and 4 cm deep, the Beam will fit on most TV stands. Sonos also creates a smaller smart speaker with Alexa, the Sonos One. In our review of the Sonos One, we noticed that it filled our living room with a perfectly balanced sound, no matter what we played. Google Assistant will be coming to Sonos smart speakers soon.
