The Sonos Beam is the new Soundbar from Sonos.  The Beam is a lower priced soundbar than the Playbar, but has some additional features such as the ability to hook into your television through an HDMI cable.  If you recently purchased a Beam, congratulations.

Here is the user manual for the Sonos Beam, which Sonos calls the Product Guide.

2 Product Guide
What’s in the box
Carefully unpack the box. There are a few audio cables inside. You’ll use the HDMI cable—during setup, we’ll
see if you need the optical adapter too.
*The optical adapter will only be used if your TV doesn’t have an HDMI ARC port.
What you need
• TV with an HDMI ARC port (preferred) or optical digital audio OUT port.
• Mobile device (it’s easier) or computer connected to your Wi-Fi. You’ll need this for setup. Have your
network name and password ready. See Your home network for more detail.
• The Sonos app to guide you through setup (install it on the device you’re using for setup).
Choose a location
You can mount Beam to a wall above or below your TV or place it on a credenza.
Placed on a credenza
• Place horizontally on a stable and level surface at least 2″ (50mm) from TV.
• Don’t place vertically or on its side.
• Don’t block the TV’s IR sensor.
• If put on a shelf, place at the front and keep 2″ (minimum) clearance on both sides for best sound quality.
• Keep 1″ (25mm) space (minimum) above Beam so you can reach the touch controls.
• For best sound quality, keep both ends of Beam at least 1′ (30cm) from a wall or other obstruction.
Wall mounted
• Use the Beam wall mount kit. You can buy it on www.sonos.com. Follow the instructions in the kit.
• Keep 1″ (25mm) space (minimum) above Beam so you can reach the touch controls.
• If you’re mounting above the TV, make sure you can reach the touch controls.
• For best sound quality, keep both ends of Beam at least 1′ (30cm) from a wall or other obstruction.

Connect the cables
Before you start
1. Disconnect existing home theater or surround sound equipment from your TV.
2. Connect any external devices, such as a cable box or DVD player, directly to your TV.
Connect the power cord
1. Insert the power cord firmly into Beam’s AC (mains) power port until it is fully connected.
2. Plug the other end of the power cord into an AC (mains) power source.
Caution: Use only the supplied power cord (using a third-party power cord will void your warranty).
Connect Beam to your TV
Use the HDMI cable to connect the soundbar to your TV. You may need the optical adapter too (the app lets
you know).
1. Fully insert the HDMI cable into Beam’s HDMI port.
2. Connect the HDMI cable to your TV. You have two choices:
• If your TV has an HDMI ARC port, connect the HDMI cable directly to the TV’s HDMI ARC port.
• If your TV doesn’t have an HDMI ARC port, attach the optical adapter to the HDMI cable and connect
it to the TV’s optical digital OUT port.

4 Product Guide
If your TV has an HDMI ARC port
HDMI ARC is a special port that looks like a standard HDMI port. Although they look the same, if you connect
to a standard HDMI port, you won’t hear sound.
1. On your TV’s audio OUT panel, look for an HDMI ARC port.
It may be on the back or side of your TV.
You’ll know it’s an ARC port if you see the word “ARC” on the label.
2. Connect the HDMI cable to the TV’s HDMI ARC port.
Note: If you can’t find the word “ARC” on the label, it isn’t the correct port, see If your TV doesn’t have an
HDMI ARC port.

If your TV doesn’t have an HDMI ARC port
You’ll need the optical adapter.
1. Remove the protective cap from the optical adapter.
2. Attach the optical adapter to the HDMI cable.
3. Connect the optical adapter to the TV’s optical digital OUT port.
Note: The optical adapter’s port is “D-shaped”—make sure the connector aligns correctly into the port.
Inserting the adapter incorrectly may damage the cable.

Your home network
Your Sonos speakers and the mobile device with the Sonos app need to be on the same Wi-Fi network.
Wireless network
Setting up Sonos on your home Wi-Fi is the answer for most homes. You just need:
• High-speed internet connection such as DSL/cable modem or fiber-to-the-home broadband connection
• High-speed DSL/cable modem (or fiber-to-the-home broadband connection)
• 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n wireless home network
Note: Satellite internet access may cause playback issues.
Wired home network
Connect a Sonos Boost or speaker to your router with an Ethernet cable if:
• Your Wi-Fi is slow, temperamental, or doesn’t reach all the rooms where you want to use Sonos.
• Your network is already in high demand with streaming video and internet usage and you want a separate
wireless network just for your Sonos system.
• Your network is 5GHz only (not switchable to 2.4GHz).
• Your router supports only 802.11n (you can’t change the settings to support 802.11b/g/n).
Note: For uninterrupted playback, use and Ethernet cable to connect the computer or NAS drive that has
your music library files to your router.
Sonos Beam 17
Got a new router?
If you purchase a new router or change your internet service provider (ISP), you’ll need to restart your Sonos
products after the router is installed.
Note: If you keep a Sonos product connected to your router and an ISP technician connects it to the new
router, then you’ll only need to restart your other Sonos products.
1. After the router is set up, disconnect the power cords from your Sonos products for at least 5 seconds.
2. Reconnect all the power cords—if you keep a Sonos product connected to your router, start with that one.
The speaker status light turns solid white on each product when the restart is complete.
If you don’t have a Sonos product connected to your router, you’ll need to change your network password
in the Sonos app.
Change your network password
If you change your network password (and you don’t have a Sonos product connected to your router), you’ll
need to update the password in the Sonos app.
1. Connect a Sonos speaker to your router with an Ethernet cable.
2. Choose an option:
• On a mobile device, go to > Settings > Advanced Settings > Wireless Setup.
• On a PC, go to Manage > Settings > Advanced. On the General tab, select Wireless Setup.
• On a Mac, go to Sonos > Preferences > Advanced. On the General tab, select Wireless Setup.
3. Enter the new network password.
Once the password is accepted you can unplug the speaker from the router and move it back to its original
location.
