    • Holy baloney! I was very close to buying this yesterday! Thanks!

      By the way does anyone know if the One SL speaker has the Gen2 or Gen1 technology?

      This is subjective, but I wouldn't trust them.
      A company that sometimes makes bad decisions and then amends it after listening to customer feedback and complaints?! HOW SHAMEFUL!

    • One SL just doesn’t have the voice assistants.

      A lot of us here got it for $185+tax and then received a $65 credit (so ~$145 taxes in) from Amazon back last July.

      Although I disagree that we should not care about the Recycle mode issue, I do think this was the bigger problem:

      After spending years building a whole home system, they can decide to flip a switch and stop parts of or are all of it from working.

      Anyways, I had already heavily invested in the Sonos infrastructure before this and love them; however, these types of practices should absolutely be part of your buying decision.

      I think it's fair and makes sense. The technology can't handle the increased bandwidth, at least the 15 year old speakers still work.

      Speakers have typically lasted for longer than 15 years, but yes, I agree, smart speakers are a different beast.

      I'm not even saying that it isn't "fair" necessarily (though they definitely could have handled it better) but it IS definitely something someone should know before buying.

    • I would look towards the SL model instead, the voice assistant support on this is absolutely atrocious. Picked one up when we were given a $65 credit from Amazon and GA support was useless, erroring out more often than not and Sonos support just couldn't resolve it for me. Ended up returning it and just went back to my Google Home; improved audio quality, but terrible GA support wasn't enough for me to keep it.

    • i missed out on the refurb sale for $139.

      Good price considering the Ikea Symonisk is $149.

      Don't forget 1% Rakuten.

      The regular Sonos One does not have a hardware disable for the microphone. It can self-enable even after you turned it off.

      The removal of an ever listening speaker, connected back to Amazon or Google, could be considered to be a feature.

    • A little name confusion: this is the Sonso One, not a Sonos Play One. The Sonos Play: 1 is an older model with the same speaker components but no voice assistant. Yes, it was very confusing of Sonos to name them like that. The Sonos One gen2 model has a slightly-updated processor, but is so far identical in function to the gen1 (in fact Sonos says there is a bug in the gen2 voice assistant support that does not affect the gen1). The Sonos One SL is a Sonos One gen2 without the microphones or voice assistant. The Sonos One (gen 1 or gen2) and the One SL can all pair with each other to form a stereo pair, while the older Play 1 can only pair with another Play 1.

      As far as the audio quality, it's a good speaker for the size and price. It has balanced sound and tight bass, unlike the boomy sound of cheap speakers trying to sound powerful. I have a stereo pair (gen1 and gen2), and I recommend it on that basis. If you want to compare the sound of Sonos to other speakers, try this tool: http://switcher.oluvsgadgets.net/

      This is a good price. Not the best ever, but Sonos doesn't go on sale very often. I got my gen1 from Gibby's for about this price (but no tax), and my gen2 during the Amazon Prime Days pricing error that brought it down to $125.

      The Sonos One can run either Alexa or Google Assistant, but not both at the same time (nor can a stereo pair run both at the same time). That's a restriction imposed by Amazon and Google. In both cases it is a slightly crippled version that can't do everything that the original versions can on real Echo or Google Home speakers - the limitations are a lot of detailed little things (e.g., no sleep timer on Google), so you'll have to read up on this in the Sonos Community forum if it matters to you. The Google Assistant support in particular is riddled with bugs, and Sonos has shown no sign of fixing them since the original introduction last July. Alexa support is a little more mature. Relations between Sonos and Google are a bit chilly at the moment, because Sonos is suing Google for patent infringement (and they said publicly that they would be suing Amazon too if they could afford to pursue two major lawsuits at once).

      My personal recommendation is to buy either a Play 1 (same sound, cheaper) or a Sonos One SL without the voice assistant, and put the money you save towards buying an Echo Dot (or Echo Input with no speaker) or a Google Home Mini. You'll get much better voice functionality with fewer bugs, and you can still play all the music on the Sonos speakers.

      Some online teardowns have reported that the Ikea speakers made by Sonos appear to have exactly the same components - only the speaker enclosure is different. Reviewers report that the sound is similar, with the Sonos One holding a slight edge in sound quality and power, while being more compact.

    • I JUST pulled the trigger on a HomePod. I can get 2 of these for the same price as 1 HomePod.

      Review sites are saying the HomePod has the better sound, since it can play omni-directionally.

      Can anyone with both maybe answer if it's better to get 2 of the Sonos' or just the 1 HomePod?

      Thanks
