Best speakers for Apple TV 4K in 2024

The Apple TV 4K is one of the coolest TV streamers that money can buy — just hook it up to the HDMI port of your TV, and the Apple TV takes over. The problem is that it relies on the speakers that are built into your TV, which, let's face it, are generally dreadful.

Thankfully, you needn't worry about dreadful speakers to go with your Apple TV, because there are some great options out there that sound incredible at various different price points. That could be a two-speaker set, a soundbar, or even a complete Home Theater package that plugs into your TV with a single cable and provides you and the best Apple TV shows and movies with the best sound possible. Here are the best speakers for Apple TV.

Quick list


Which Apple TV speaker should I buy?

As you can see, there are a lot of excellent speaker options out there that can help you get the most out of your Apple TV 4K. Our favorite is the Sonos Beam because it's small and compact but packs enough audio drivers to fill up small to medium-sized rooms with vibrant sound. If you need something even smaller, then Apple's HomePod mini smart speaker also packs a surprising punch.

Already have an Atmos capable receiver and are looking for a speaker upgrade? Then the Atmos-enabled Sony SSCSE speaker set is worth a look. This affordable pair is tiny yet powerful enough for Atmos Height Effects when mounted on a wall or on the top of your existing bookshelf speakers.
