I read a lot of reviews and watched quite a few comparisons online before I purchased a Move.
I’ve had it about 10 days now and REALLY want to love this speaker as much as my others but have been slightly underwhelmed.... I mean it’s a nice speaker and all, but I was hoping to be as impressed as I have been with all my other Sonos speakers (Beam for TV, pair of Ones w Sub in LR, One in Kitchen, One SL in Bathroom and One SL in Bedroom).
Some of the online reviews I read said that the Move is more powerful than the One (a reviewer claimed it’s “like 1.5 Ones” and others had similar sentiments), but frankly I can hardly tell any difference whatsoever between a One and the Move when I put them side-by-side (tested by toggling back and forth, muting one and then the other with different types of music). The Move may have slightly more bass, but if anything a One actually sounds a little more crisp to my ear, and the volume difference when the two are at the same point on the slider is negligible.
The TruPlay tuning seems to make very little difference with the Move either – I’ve tried putting it in different places and I can’t even tell if/when it kicks in. It’s barely noticeable when I toggle Trueplay on/off.
The One is a terrific speaker, but for twice the price I was hoping the Move was more than just a “One with a battery“. Am I missing something or have others had this same experience? Is it possible my Move is defective? How would I find out?
