A low-profile, high-value bar from Sonos

Meet the most compact and affordable Sonos sound bar yet. The Sonos Ray offers surprisingly powerful sound in a small package. Each of its built-in speakers is driven by a matching amplifier and expertly tuned by Sono's award-winning engineers for rich, balanced audio.

This sound bar is slim, and all of its speakers are front-firing, making it easy to tuck the bar under your TV or into a media cabinet. And like every speaker in Sonos's impressive lineup, the Ray makes streaming music where and how you want as easy as pie.

Connect with Sonos

The Ray is part of the Sonos wireless multi-room ecosystem, which means you can group it with other Sonos speakers to stream music, podcasts, or audiobooks throughout your home. The Sonos app has an intuitive interface that makes it easy to play whatever you want, wherever you want.

You can play the same content everywhere at once, or pop on something different in each room. Start up the Audible version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in the living room for the kids, while you chill to "King of Sweden" by Future Islands in the den.

Wirelessly expand your home theater

The Ray provides a big upgrade to your TV's audio, but it also serves as a foundation for a wireless home theater system. The cool thing about Sonos is that you can add on to your system as you go, expanding as you gain more room or your budget opens up.

You can pick up a Sonos Sub if you're looking to add low-end impact to your listening. Incorporating a couple Sonos One SLs as surround speakers adds wraparound effects. And it's all wireless too, so you only need to plug each speaker into AC power.

Sonos Ray powered sound bar wireless music system

Conveniently compact and easy to use — the Sonos Ray is a great addition to any living room.

Stream with AirPlay 2

Apple fans are in good hands. AirPlay 2 lets you stream from an iPhone® or iPad® and connect the sound bar to the AirPlay ecosystem. If you're a subscriber to Apple Music®, you can use Siri to control and play that service with your voice too.

Match your sound to the room

If you have an iOS® device, you can calibrate the sound bar using Trueplay™. This lets you use your iPhone or iPad to match the bar's sound settings to the specific shape and acoustics of your room. This feature measures how sound reflects off your walls, ceiling, and furniture and optimizes it to fit the space.

Easy setup and control

It only takes a few minutes to get this sound bar up and running. Plug in a couple cables and press a button to connect the sound bar with the Sonos app on your phone or tablet. The two cables are an AC power cord and an optical cable between your TV and the sound bar.

The mobile app gives you intuitive control, but the Ray also works with most TV remotes to keep things simple. And the smooth touch controls on top of the bar are illuminated to make them easy to find in the dark.
