It Looks Like Audible Support is Heading Back to Sonos

Audible is probably the most popular audiobook service out there, and Sonos has made a pretty good name for itself in the smart/multi-room industry. So it's been disappointing to find that the two have been incompatible for a while. Luckily it probably won't be that way for long, because Sonos accidentally announced it early. Read More >>

How the HomePod Stacks Up Against Other Smart Speakers

It seems like every new wireless speaker on the market comes with a voice assistant now. Since 2014, when Amazon announced the Echo, the idea of a smart speaker has taken the gadget world by storm.

Sonos One: Can Alexa Supercharge The OG Of Multiroom Audio?

For many years, speakers were boring unless you were a hardcore audiophile. They didn’t do anything clever. Sure, there were speakers that sounded better or worse - but to the lay listener, this was simply a question of price: The more money you spent, the better the sound. Read More >>

Sonos Finally Squished Alexa Into a Speaker, But Maybe Just Buy a Dot

Sonos wouldn’t like it, but you could call its new smart speaker an “Echo.” A high-end, very nice-sounding, but flawed Amazon Echo—the kind someone who just got a promotion might buy themselves, because unlike the £50 Dot or new £100 Echo, this speaker will set you back £200. Read More >>

The Sonos Smart Speaker is Finally Here

At long last, Sonos is ready for small talk. The wireless speaker company—whose gloss has dulled as Amazon, Google, and soon Apple, have released increasingly decent “smart” speakers over the last couple of years—is finally releasing a speaker with built-in voice commands. It’s called the Sonos One and it comes with Amazon’s Alexa assistant built in. In 2018, Sonos says it will support Google’s Assistant, too. Read More >>

New Sonos Gear Is on the Way as Apple’s HomePod Looms

It’s no secret Sonos is working on a smart speaker to rival products like Amazon’s Echo and Apple’s Homepod. Last year, Sonos laid off a number of staff while simultaneously announcing a new shift in focus to help the company “remain innovative and successful.” But jumping on the digital assistant bandwagon hasn’t been easy, as the company’s current integration with Amazon Alexa devices isn’t exactly what you’d call straightforward.

The New Sonos Playbase Is Great, Comes a Little Too Late

There was a brief period of time—think 2011 to 2015, where the pedestal-like soundbar was convenient for TV owners. TVs had become skinnier and sound had ended up crummier as a consequence. Functioning as both speaker and stand, the pedestal was an appealing soundbar-style ideal for TV owners who had no plans to mount a set on their wall, but didn’t have space for a giant sound log resting precariously in front of their set. Sonos’ new Playbase is one of the best pedestal-style sound bars you will be able to buy right now, but, uhh, it’s also way late. Read More >>

Leaked Sonos PlayBase Actually Has a Chance of Not Sucking

Sonos is getting ready to expand its home cinema lineup, according to multiple leaks that surfaced in the past few days. Photos of a new Sonos product called the “PlayBase” speaker have been featured in a B&H Listing, several tweets, and FCC listing. Base speakers of this kind—which sit directly under a TV—have typically received poor reviews from audio fans, but Sonos’ proprietary sound-tuning software could give this thing hope. Read More >>

Sonos Speaker Control Coming to Spotify

Spotify's apps are already great for acting as mobile remotes for whichever device is currently streaming tunes from the Swedish service. It's made my home cinema-connected PS4 my go-to stereo system as a result, letting me line up tunes through the PlayStation app before blasting them through my 5.1 speakers. So today's news comes as a natural extension of those capabilities – the Spotify apps will soon let you take complete control over any wireless Sonos speakers you may have. Read More >>

The Best Multiroom Wireless Speaker System to Fill Your Home With Music

We’ve spent hundreds of hours over several months using six multiroom wireless speaker systems in every possible room (and even outside) to find the best multiroom wireless speaker system.
