Hey everybody. Really excited about the new voice enabled Sonos One! I would love to put one in my living room where I currently have the complete 5.1 setup. Can I move one of the surrounds to a different room and link the new One with an old Play:1? Will the voice activation work when the Sonos One is in the surround configuration?

Great question J-Kon72. The Sonos One is only set to pair with another Sonos One, you won't be able to bond a One with a PLAY:1 for either stereo or as part of a surround setup with a PLAY:1.
I'll make sure to pass on to the team that you're interested in seeing this at some point in the future, but there aren't any plans to share that this might happen.
And a big "Yes" to your last question. The voice activation will work when it's a surround speaker, or when stereo paired.
