Sanus is expanding its suite of Sonos accessories with the launch of  a soundbar mount designed for Sonos Beam, and expanded the range of mounts for larger screen sizes.

The new SONOS Beam mount (pictured above) provides 30cm of height adjustment to ensure an ideal fit between Beam and the bottom of a set. Constructed of light-weight steel and available in a black finish, the mount disappears behind Beam.

“A huge differentiator between the Sanus Soundbar Mount Designed for Sonos Beam and other products on the market is its intuitive Smart Latch,” says Mark Plummer, senior product manager. “It allows for speaker height adjustment with just the lift of a finger – no disassembly or tools required.”

Compatible with Sanus mounts and other brands, the Sanus mount for Beam works with a large range of TV sizes – up to 70-inches – and features broad VESA compatibility. When paired with a full-motion TV mount, the new SANUS mount allows Beam to move with the TV for an optimal listening experience.

“This mount is ideal for those who have a full-motion TV mount and are planning to add a Beam to their home theatre setup,” says Plummer. “The soundbar mount allows the Beam to move with the TV, so as you point the TV to where you are seated, you aren’t leaving the sound behind.”

In related news, Sanus has announced that it is increasing the size capabilities of four of its most popular medium mounts to accommodate the consumer trends in TV sales. 

The SanusTV mounts, VMF620-B2, VMF518-B2, VMT5-B2 and VML5-B2 have been upgraded to support TVs between 37- and 55-inches in size, expanding their compatibility with TV panels from the previous 40- - 50-inches capability. Each mount retains its existing feature set and the same wall plate size.

VMF620-B2 is a full motion mount designed to provide more flexible viewing angles from its three-arm articulation, providing a fluid motion 50cm extension and 180 swivel without any reduction in mounting stability. Innovative solutions, such as 30cm post installation lateral shift and lockable level adjustment, which doesn’t restrict the fingertip VirtualAxis adjustments the user can make, set this next generation mount apart from its rivals.VMF620_L30_ext _tilt Copy

The VMF518-B2 also offers full motion capability, cable management, fingertip movement and post installation adjustment for perfect positioning on the wall. Secure and wobble-free extension into the room of 45cm (18”) provides maximum flexibility for the end user. 

Users requiring a tilting mount for TVs up to 55-inch size are catered for by the VMT5-B2, which provides fingertip tilt for easy TV adjustments of +7° and -12°. The mount tilts the TV back for cable access.

Fixed TV installations are possible using the VML5-B2. Requiring no tools for assembly, this mount ensures a quick and easy installation of the TV at the desired height on the wall. Post installation side to side adjustment ensures perfect positioning. 

Commenting on the revised mounts, Plummer says: “Market trends are clearly moving in the direction of larger screen sizes as the 4K standard becomes more popular and consumers opt for screens up to 55-inches in size. For this reason, we have re-engineered four of our most popular medium mounts, covering the fixed, tilting and full motion options, to provide the perfect solution for purchasers of these larger screens, without the need to increase the physical size of the wall mount.”
