Sonos Responds To Sub Mini Theres A Lot Of Products We Consider

Sonos 10 Dyson fan collab incoming!

If Apple is going to release a sound bar or a new full size HomePod in June, now would exist a expert time to leak it.

I hope they don’t underestimate the impact a lower priced sub will have on Sonos sales.

You mean the Mac Pro?

Zero wrong with looking like a round file. Round files are incredibly useful devices for avoiding record direction systems.

All the same not actually sure how much value Sonos represents anymore.

Later some showroom testing, my parents went with an LG soundbar (SN11RG) with a sub and two satellite speakers (with upwards-firing drivers). The cost of the LG setup nearly half of the cost of the equivalent Sonos setup, and in my own opinion, the sound and fabric quality wasn’t really any unlike.

Sonos as a company has also made some pretty nasty decisions. They pretty much bricked an “unsupported” speaker line, and they also had a “recycle way” that would permanently disable the speaker.

I would be interested if it supported the showtime Gen Beam. I am not sure I want to purchase a whole new setup for the bedroom

While I’m somewhat biased every bit take placidity a lot of Sonos gear including the Arc and Sub, I can see a cheaper sub being popular. Given how Apple handled the original HomePod I‘m not certain if I’d be tempted to go for an Apple tree sound bar as yous’ll never know if Apple simply decides to drop it and do something else.

Then once again Sonos aren’t immune from doing stupid things, such as bricking serial 1 speakers if yous decided to apply them to go a disbelieve on series 2. Thankfully they no longer practice this though y’all do miss some features in a mixed series 1 and 2 system (tin can’t recall exactly what as at present entirely serial 2).

The price of the LG setup most one-half of the cost of the equivalent Sonos setup, and in my ain opinion, the sound and material quality wasn’t really whatsoever different.

If you don’t demand the multiroom audio feature, they are indeed rather overpriced. Even if you do, they are not exactly inexpensive IMO, but then you can at least justify it with their ease of setup and handling.

I would be interested if information technology supported the first Gen Axle. I am non sure I want to buy a whole new setup for the bedroom

Hopefully information technology will be as the current sub is uniform with the first gen beam (not that I’ve tried it as replaced first gen axle with the Ark and sub at the same time).

I wish they’d fix the Axle’s muddy, unintelligible dialog or release a center channel speaker instead of a sub.

I dear my Play:5 but later struggling with my in-laws Sonos 1 (won’t work, wired or wireless, new app or old) and the privacy-invading decisions in their new app I’ll never buy some other of their products again. Menstruum. In that location’s no encarmine way I should accept to give a speaker my verbal location and access to run into everything on my network. If they ever require the Play5 to employ the new app, it goes up on ebay. Screw ’em. I’ll stick to simple bluetooth speakers.

I love my Sonos sub, simply information technology’due south a little overwhelming for a small room. The smaller sub volition sell well. I am surprised that Google or Amazon hasn’t acquired Sonos. Apple tree would be an ideal company to buy Sonos. I have speakers all over my house and none of the bigger players – Google, Apple tree or Amazon tin can friction match their sound quality. But I don’t see Sonos surviving much longer confronting these giants.

I bought a sonos beam gen ii with 2 Sonos SL speakers during Black Friday a couple of years ago for $550 all together from Best Buy. Every time I have guest over they ever complement the sound. All tech is heading in the direction of equipment becoming obsolete. Apple does it all the time without much though from others.

Actually, after a lot of complaints, they didn’t “brick” the obsolete line. You lot create a separate “zone” for older speakers and they piece of work just fine. Though wired speakers fare ameliorate over time- I take a set of Energy speakers from the early on 90s that all the same sound amazing with a Denon receiver. I can connect all of that to my Sonos setup with the Sonos Port.

It’s fine for equipment to become obsolete, you tin’t expect manufacturers to support them forever. Information technology’s admittedly non okay to brick a working device and say “Hither’s £100 towards a newer ane, become spend some more money”. That’southward pretty much what Sonos did, and there was no way to disengage it after people unknowingly installed the “software update”.

Slap-up sounding speakers, but Sonos on MacRumors … interesting, aye I know it’s Apple “related”, but and so over again ConEdison is related too – it supplies free energy to Apple tree devices for those in the NY area yea?

I once considered Sonos to replace my living room and chamber audio systems, but while I doing inquiry, Sonos decided to “brick” some of their older speakers – so I went with another brand, and volition probably do the same in the time to come. Over again, sound is great … but their device bricking practice for “just a speaker” is not my thing.

Sonos focused on the sound side. I have shifted my sound purchases from others to Sonos. Now if they came out with headphones, consummate transition.

no fashion to undo information technology
subsequently people unknowingly installed the “software update”.

Wrong.

Sonos still publishes the legacy Sonos S1 controller, to play all the legacy speaker products.
