Given the increased availability of spatial music there are still only a handful of tabletop Atmos speakers, including the $249 Amazon Echo Studio and $300 Apple HomePod. Meanwhile there are a number of Atmos soundbars with models from Vizio, Bose and Sonos.

I heard the speakers at a Sonos event in downtown Manhattan and found that the Sonos Era 100 offered surprisingly full bass for a small speaker. As it was a small — and packed — room it was hard to hear any stereo effects though. But there were no such issues with the Era 300 with a broad, expansive sound reminiscent of the Sonos Beam.
