Add Some spice Chris...... what do you feel is better in Sonos 1 compared to Beolit 12?

I have a few of the Beloit 15's in stock
Champagne gold & in pink if anyone is interested message me

I loved B&O in the 80's with their futuristic design but I feel their design these days is dated & quite often FUGLY.

Just be aware that this model is from 2012. It is not Bluetooth, just AirPlay. You would need to buy a Bluetooth adapter and connect it to the 3.5mm audio input. Also the battery life is only about 8 hours at 50% volume, that was probably good back in 2012, but you can get similar products that run well over 20 hours on battery now.

Well pointed with facts.

I have a few Airplay speakers around the house and would't buy any Airplay speaker again, I find the technology unstable, connection dropping, limited range, etc and IMO it is now surpassed by Chromecast which is much more reliable.

Also, unlike Bluetooth, Airplay doesn't connect automatically (you have to actively pair each time to cast) is there a way to make Airplay speakers connect automatically, say when you turn the speaker on?
