Huh? What 10%, this deal is currently 25%
Been this price for a while now, this is the new RRP..... the odd offer pops up at £129 so I’d hang fire.

Due to be discontinued in the near future also with the Sonos One release and the anticipated Sonos Three....

Stick to the Play if you have Sonos already.... if not get the new version to future proof yourself as they are not compatible

The PLAY:1 isn't compatible with the One? That's a bit of a flaw, no changing to stereo audio for legacy buyers

The speakers had been reduced to £150, and Curries Pc World were the first to offer a 10% off the whole range. Amazon, Richer Sounds and Sonic Direct matched this reduction making the Sonos Play One £134. This 10% reduction was withdrawn a couple of days ago, and prices from all retailers have gone back (to £150 for the play one model,.)

No... you can’t group them, pair as stereo or use together for surround sound. Different hardware architecture and wireless frequencies so I heard!

Clever on Sonos part though as it can force a complete system upgrade to get access to the new models / features

The ONE (and PlayBar, or is it 5 gen2?) are also ‘Airplay2’ ready - firmware permitting (due q2 2018?).

Whereas the existing “: 1” and “: 3” aren’t....

This is my reason for holding out for a revised 3.

Crazy. I’m sure they sound good but I hate how proprietary all these audio systems are. Once you buy one you’re locked in to that eco system. And then they they cripple functionality to force you to upgrade... I know every company does this but when you’re already paying £200+...
Why's this hot it was cheaper only last week ?
Got a brand new, still sealed play 1 for £130 if anyone wants it? Just received it from the recent Vodafone broadband promotion. I'm in Leeds/Bradford area.
No time machine but Sonos put the prices up early this year citing Brexit impact on currency. This has in reality bought the price back to just under 2016 levels. Still a great product but in the crowded marketplace of wireless speakers the play 1 shouldn’t be any more than £120 imo.
Also, having dabbled in the Sonos range, 2 x 1 is miles better than a 3 alone of you have a medium size room. Especially if you want stereo. I'd definitely pay the extra.
Hi stupid question: now that echo and google home do music plus more, what is the unique selling point for sonos?

Primarily, sound quality. Amazon and Google sell smart assistants that also function as networked speakers (this will change with some of the more expensive models they bring out). Sonos sells networked speakers that also have some smart assistant functionality.

Sonos will also be compatible with various 3rd party assistants (Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant), rather than being tied to that of the manufacturer.

If you want full Alexa functionality (not just the audio-related functionality in-built into the One), you can pair an Alexa Dot as your smart assistant with Play:1s or other legacy Sonos.

I think the only time they are not compatible is if you try and pair two different speakers together (I.e. a One and a play1) to create a stereo pair.
I have two play1 and use them both separately in different rooms so the compatibility isn't an issue. If I buy another One I'm likely to use it in a different room.

If you already have 2x play1 and were looking to buy 2 more to make them both into stereo pairs, just put the two existing ones together and buy two new Ones to pair together.

Unless I have misunderstood I don't think this is a big issue.

Agreed.
A Play:1 and Sonos One can be GROUPED together as two different zones playing the same content.

They cannot be PAIRED (or bonded) together as one zone in stereo (one speaker as the left, one as the right) or as part of a surround sound system with a Playbar or Playbase.
Sonos may sort it out in time, hopefully.

Cold. Standard price now. Could be had for £134 from Amazon a couple of days ago or from £149 from richer sounds with 6 year warranty
Definitely cold now - 10% off back on at Currys:

Did some more research, for anyone that is considering purchasing Sonos one, it doesn't replace the echo dot.

The strap line "does everything that Alexa does" is only true in a legal sense! Apparently, the intercom and phone functions are "echo" functions and not supported.

The flash briefing (news) doesn't work yet and the support for music services like Spotify is limited.

Many in the Sonos community are suggesting that the cheaper Sonos Play 1 and an echo dot is a better option. BUT even this model doesn't have a wired input, so integration whin Alexa is through a skill.

Peculiar as problematic , if anyone like me, anyone wants to get into the Sonos ecosystem for better expandable sound, and wants to buy the latest product to be future proof.
