Hello all, new Sonos owner here. I ordered a Sonos Arc from Walmart because BestBuy was out and I couldn’t find one in stock anywhere else. Paid $999 for it but was happy to get it, as I have the Sub and Ones for surround coming this week. To my surprise, when I opened the box come to find out it’s an Arc SL! Walmart’s site didn’t say SL, and even included voice control as a feature. To be truthful, I wasn’t really planning to use the voice control feature, but to pay a $100 premium and not get what I ordered kind of chaps my hide. I contacted Walmart and they’re confused, offered me to return it but then I’m a month and a half out to get an Arc.
So, questions to the wise. Is there any downside to the Arc SL vs. Arc aside from the voice control feature? Sonos app picked it up correctly as an Arc SL, but I’m concerned about future support. Would you return it and wait for the real Arc? It’s already installed and sounds great I just don't want to worry about it going EOL before the Arc does etc. I’d love to get thoughts from the experts what you would do in this case.
Thank you for your opinions!
