Updated: 05/15/20 (see Note below) These charts were developed to give you a snapshot feature/design comparison of Sonos all-in-one speakers. They are separated into two groups...those generally associated with Music and those generally associated with Home Theater. However, depending upon the application all the speakers in the charts can be used cross-functionally (Sonos Move has some restrictions). The charts should not be used as the determining factor for your buying decision. They are merely an aide to be used as a starting point based upon your individual/personal need(s). Every situation (while on the surface may appear to be similar) has specifics that does not fit into a "one-size-fits-all" scenario. The Community is still here to offer counsel and suggestions to assist you in building your ultimate Sonos system. NOTE: Information regarding Sonos Music Speakers for the Sonos Five; the successor to the Play: 5, and how it differs can be found in FAQ’s information regarding
With the release of the Sonos One (Gen2) you may have questions as to how it compares to the Sonos One (Gen1) and its not so distant cousin the Sonos Play:1. Rest assured that all three speakers are top notch in terms of build quality, internal components, attention to detail and deliver the outstanding audio experience you expect from a Sonos speaker. In a blind listening test you'd be hard pressed to choose one over the other (if at all).

Updated: 02/14/21 (see Notes below for additional information)This chart has been adjusted to showcase those speakers shown in the picture above which are current in the Sonos catalogue. The Sonos Arc is the newest addition to the family of Sonos speakers. It brings Dolby Atmos sound to the Sonos Home Theater listening experience. Although not listed in this chart click the link under Notes to view a detail of it compared to other Sonos.The Sonos Five with subtle cosmetic changes has replaced the Play 5.The Sonos Sub has been upgraded to a 3rd generation with the addition of an infinity button for setup and a few internal upgrades. In addition to the above Sonos has listened to it’s audience and incorporated in the S2 software the ability to add two subs for increased low-end performance. Home Theater enthusiasts will find this feature a welcome addition. The Playbar and Playbase are included only for reference; as they are discontinued, but still may be available via 3rd party res
Is there anybody out there that can explain to me the point to buying a Sonos TT Project Debut carbon for $749 when I can buy the Fluance RT85 Reference High Fidelity Vinyl Turntable with the same blue cart and the built in preamp for $599.Also I have been looking at the Victrola carbon stream for $799 which has the selling point that it is wireless and not in need of an RCA jack. Since I plan to use the TT/ Play5 in the same room what advantage am I going to get out of the Victrola.Thanks
I want to install two TV’s outdoors that are very close to each other (less than 10’ and facing different directions). I would ideally like the idea of having both TV’s play the same video and audio signal (with no human detectable delay) but potentially play separate signals. I thought I would deploy it like this:*HDMI Splitter: Input=FireStick1. Output1=TV1 HDMI1, Output2=TV2 HDMI1** So far just looking at a 4K powered splitter on Monoprice.com that has good reviews. Not sure if this brand/model is critical as long as it does proper say 4K@60hz or whatever the requirement is?*TV1*HDMI1 input=Output1 from HDMI splitter described below*TV2*HDMI1 input=Output from HDMI splitter near TV1HDMI2 input=FireStick2This configuration allows me to set both TV’s to HDMI1 and use the remote for FireStick1 to see and hear the same audio. If I want to have the TV’s broadcast different signals (perhaps one with audio muted), I can simply switch them both to HDMI2 and use two separate FireStick r
Hello everyone!I am planning to buy a Sonos system but I have a lots of doubts about what to get, hope you can help me.The system is for a house bar, we play everything trough the TV (Youtube, spotify, netflix, sport games in the TV, etc) we do not watch movies, just music videos in youtube or just music from spotify, the sustem will be for music; so I am planning to use an ARC with the sub for it, also I want to add two ones but no to use them as sorrounds, my question is: This set up would work good for music? It would be loud and clear? What if I change the ones with two fives, this would sound good with the arc? Is this set up Im planning to get a good idea or it would be better to use an amp with regular speakers? Hope you could help me, thanks in advance! PS: One of the reasons I am thinking to get sonos is that I also want to have the option to add more speakers in another space of the house where I could play the same music of the bar at the same time.Remember, the main or onl
I ordered a Sonos amp 12/24. Ship date was supposed to be 1/14 but now they are saying it’s delayed and don’t know when it will ship. My question is has anyone actually been receiving their orders at all or does the ship date just keep getting pushed back for everyone? I’ve noticed these expected ship dates being displayed for the last 6 months. Has anyone actually received one?
Was considering to upgrade my system with a new arc and gen3 subwoofer. Decided to replace my Samsung android phone with an Apple iphone to use Trueplay. However after purchasing a SE 2022 found that this is as yet not supported by Sonos. After e-mailing and a phone call to sonos support was informed they do not release dates for upgradesbut will be coming soon and to use a friends iphone for trueplay!! These phones were released March this year. Maybe in another year or two Sonos will support this model.Now bought a Sony HT-A9, which supports all formats and uses a remote for callibration. The sound is amazing for both TV\ radio. So muchso just bought the new sony A90K TV.Will now never buy another sonos product. Current system is relegated to the pare room with my old smaller tv.Rest in Peace sonos Long live Sony products.
So I first apologize because I know this topic has been asked repeatedly, but this time it’s a little different…… Is it possible to get Atmos quality sound if the speakers were positioned closer to the ceiling? In my living room we have 20 foot ceilings (not vaulted), but we also have a ledge that goes up about 12 feet. I wasn’t sure if being higher would help reduce the distance for the up-firing speakers? Thoughts? Or does anyone have suggestions for another sound system at that would be a better fit for my room type? Oh we also have a Sony TV with the acoustic surface so the sound projects directly from the screen. Not sure if that would help with choosing a sound system.
Hi all ,Im looking to purchase my first ever sonos product .im looking for a great speaker to listen music at home. As a family we always have the music on and I think a sonos setup would be great. I was thinking about the sonos one speaker ? I’m weighing up whether getting the latest generation or two older generation sonos ones? any advice greatly appreciated
I have a simple question: I would like to know which TV is best for our sonos system. I have a TCL, who has problems with lip sync. And it's time to get a new tv. I would really like to get some opinions based on your usage please? My system is simple, Sonos Beam gen 1, pair of Sonos play 1. And I'm going to buy a mini Sub. Possibly I will sell the beam, to get a Beam gen. 2 with Dolby Atmos, so it would be nice to have a TV with Atmos too. Thanks
Hi guys, I have recently purchased a Sony A95K O-LED tv and have been looking at sound bars. The best value for money it seems is the Sony HTZF9 which minimal problems it seems. Now I have been looking to get the Sonos Arc, has anyone had any experience in pairing the Arc with the Sony tv? Is it worthwhile? Any problems? Can I still utilise the 5:1 surround via the bar and the tv, and is it compatible? Thanks guys.
I have a Pro-Ject turntable hooked up to my Sonos 5, which plays happily through my other Sonos speakers.So clearly it’s getting converted to digital somewhere along the way – my question is does anyone know how to tap into this digital stream so I can get the audio into my Mac? I have a bunch of records I made when I was a young lad that I’d like to import into Logic and mess around with – but I really don’t want to have to buy a new USB turntable just for that!
It seems the way upgrade credit is applied has changed very recently - now the credit only applies to one item in your basket - previously I was seeing a discount applied to all items in my basket. I was considering buying an amp and a sub mini with my 30% credit but it now only applies to the most expensive item in the basket (e.g. just the amp). Has this change been announced by Sonos anywhere?
