A wireless surround system. A digital assistant. And, yes, a soundbar. The Sonos Beam has a host of uses that elevate it above your average TV speaker replacement. As a Sonos component, it integrates with the company's other speakers for whole-home audio. It has Alexa built-in, letting you control things with your voice, and supports a variety of streaming services, including Apple Music via AirPlay. Its unassuming looks blend in with nearly any decor, and at just over two feet wide, it won't dominate the room like larger units.
