Sonos Arc 2 set for 2024 launch with next-gen speaker tech and a serious price tag

However you look at it, Sonos isn’t your average wireless home audio kit manufacturer. Aside from launching its own, in-house Sonos Black Friday deals from 17 – 27 November to stick it to the big online retailers (Apple, maybe you could look at that?) we recently reported the strongest indication yet that the company is finally planning to launch its hotly-anticipated headphones.

But this is Sonos, so that’s not all. In fact, if you can think of it, according to a fresh Bloomberg report Sonos probably plans on doing it in 2024 or 2025.

Plans cited in the bulletin include a Roku or Apple TV-rivaling set-top box, an update to the Sonos Era 100, a fresh Sonos Roam iteration, a new Sub to sit alongside the Sub Mini, in-ceiling speakers and a high-end soundbar, according to “sources familiar with the matter”.

And apparently, the company plans to price it at “about $1,200”, which is a pretty steep hike up from the $899 asking fee for the current (and only) Sonos Arc – Sonos’ flagship standalone soundbar option.

Where is all this improved bass and audio quality coming from? That’ll be the long-awaited harvest on Sonos’ April 2022 acquisition of speaker manufacturer Mayht Holding BV, which TechRadar’s Managing Editor of Entertainment, Matt Bolton, explains in an interview Brandon Holley, Product Creation Lead at Sonos last year.

Oh and finally, Sonos is planning a new high-end amplifier – code-named ‘Premier’ – aimed at professional home-theater installations (around $3,000 and $4,000 per unit) in the second half of 2024, new 8-inch in-ceiling speakers and a subwoofer code-name ‘Lotus’ (which will most-likely be known as the Sonos Sub Gen 4) to include “updated capabilities like support Wi-Fi 6”, according to the missive.

Yes, it’s a lot.
