You can save $200 on a refurbished second-generation Sonos Beam

You can save 0 on a refurbished second-generation Sonos Beam

While the world of deals is about to heat up with the Fourth of July sale and Amazon’s upcoming Prime Day event, there are some great discounts you can take advantage of right now. For starters, Sonos is selling refurbished models of its second generation Beam in black or white for $299, which is $100 less than the usual refurbished price and $200 cheaper than buying the soundbar in new condition.

That’s as cheap as you’ll find for the latest version of Sonos’s mid-range soundbar, which looks a lot like the first-gen version but with subtle improvements like Dolby Atmos and low-latency eARC support. The Beam is a solid all-round performer if you want a basic soundbar that sounds great for its size, won’t clutter your space with extra speakers or subwoofers, and can also double as a smart Wi-Fi speaker for streaming music from within the Sonos ecosystem. And for those with the space, the Beam can be expanded with other Sonos speakers like the Sub Mini or even Ikea’s Symfonisk lights to create a modest surround-sound home theater setup without the wires and clutter everywhere.

While the Beam is a good deal, if it’s still out of your budget, check out the refurbished RayThe Ray is selling for just $164 ( $115 off a new model ). The Ray is the entry-level soundbar from Sonos, and while the 22-inch speaker doesn’t sound as spacious as either Beam, it’s still a formidable performer for its size. Its biggest limitation is that it relies on optical audio and lacks HDMI ports.
