Here’s a good deal: A large portion of Sonos’ speakers and soundbars are 20 percent off through Cyber Monday. The sale is now live on Sonos’ website, as well as at Best Buy, Target and other retailers. Pretty much everything is at its lowest price ever, and while there are some notable exclusions – including the Sonos Roam, Five and Sub Mini – it’s still a good time to stock up on your Sonos system.
You can pair either soundbar with other Sonos speakers or subwoofers to create a surround sound system. The Sub (third generation) retails for $599 at Best Buy and Sonos and better matches the Arc; the Sub Mini is (unfortunately) not for sale.
The Sonos One is the best starting point for a Sonos system and retails for $176 at both Best Buy and Sonos instead of $220. You can use one to fill a medium-sized room with sound. You can use two for stereo. You can pair them with Sonos speaker bars for surround sound. They are endlessly flexible and they are for sale. If you don’t know what to buy, buy this one. The Sonos One SL (on sale for $160 at Best Buy and Sonos, which is a $30 discount) is slightly cheaper and doesn’t have microphones, so you have to talk to other machines to tell it what to do. That’s an advantage, for some people.
[U]unless you’re adamantly opposed to microphones in your gadgets, I’d avoid the Roam SL. It only saves you $20, but loses quite substantial features like Trueplay sound quality auto-tuning, the Sound Swap feature mentioned above, and (obviously) all voice interactions. At $99 or $129, I could absolutely see it. But $159 is just too much to ask for the Roam SL.
Just below the wire. Guess that makes it a deal.
Sonos also has several bundles on sale, but most offer no savings over buying each piece individually.
