Stream via AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, and HEOS

With Apple AirPlay 2 compatibility and built-in Bluetooth connectivity, you can stream directly from most mobile devices. And because it works as a HEOS speaker, you can wirelessly stream music and control the soundbar with the free HEOS Home Entertainment Skill app.

Then, go to Smart Home in the Alexa app menu and choose Devices and Discover. Or, say, “Alexa, discover my devices.”

Works with the Google Assistant

Works with Apple AirPlay 2 and Siri

Use AirPlay 2 to stream music to the soundbar, or group it with other AirPlay-compatible speakers to fill your home with music. Stream audio from your favorite music services, or watch videos from services like YouTube and Netflix from any iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV and hear the audio synced with your speakers and AirPlay 2 sources. AirPlay 2 also supports multi-room audio, allowing you to stream content to multiple compatible devices simultaneously with smooth audio playback.
