I like Sonos. I normally avoid proprietary systems, but Sonos is compelling. Very low footprint, extemely neat and tidy, scalable, easy too use and capable performance for both music and TV. Lack of DTS/Atmos, connectivity and price have been issues, but Beam seems to improve on the latter two.
Not a replacement for the playbar or playbase, although I’ll be having one for the bedroom (y) 🏼
Decent deal, code BM2 isn’t too bad for the Beam and two play:1’s for £645
