Sonos has quietly started selling a new version of its Arc soundbar that supports Dolby Atmos. It does not have a built-in microphone, although you have to risk buying it at Costco.

A Sonos representative told TechHive that the Sonos Arc SL Shadow Edition is now only available exclusively in “participating” Costco stores in the US and Canada, and will be available on Costco.com later this month.

Similar to no microphone Sonos One SL, Arc SL is the same as standard Arc, but lacks the built-in microphone of the voice assistant. Both Alexa and Google Assistant are built into the original Arc, although only one can be used at a time.

For soundbar buyers who want standard Arc sound quality without a voice assistant, the new Arc SL may be a good choice, although it is only $50 cheaper than the original price, Arc SL is not a cheap deal .
