Hi,

Should I buy two Sonos One to combine with my Sonos Beam?
Or can I go for two Sonos play1, becouse the Beam is already smart ?
Or are there other differences between the One and the Play1
and is the Sonos One the best choice?

When used as surround speakers, the Sonos One mics are turned off. Effectively everything smart is going to be done by the Beam. So in that respect, there is no advantage in using Sonos One over Play:1. If you think you may eventually use the speakers as their own separate room though, than Sonos One might be a better option, as it has the mics, airplay compatibility, and better hardware for future improvements. But as I said, those improvements are irrelevant when used as surround speakers.
