I do remember BT shop doing this offer first last time round. And then other stockist followed suit. So fingers crossed Argos or JL tomorrow for me. Great speaker btw. HEAT!
Yes please
Great find, been watching these for a while so jumped in and got the max plus the hub for under 250 - might even scrape some cashback through TCB
Website error when choosing any payment. Tried on 3 devices.
What does the Hub do

I’ve one and its quite good sound. Please may I know how much is it better in pair mode rather than single? Wondering if its worth to buy one more!
Call me when it drops to £99.
Spotify sounds beautiful on this, especially pop/rock music, not so much classical
Same price at Argos
Bought one for £200 late last year and not so impressed with the sound quality. Better sound from the amazon echo show when you adjust for size.

I have a google home hub also which has poor sound. Amazon had done a fantastic job on the sound quality from its speakers. Google not so good. Not worth £400 and I'm disappointed at £200.
Be aware a newer perhaps better version is coming out in the next couple of months. Hence the clearance priices
Would this be better than a Sonos one speaker?

Yes, this is comparable to the Sonos 5

Back to £299 it seems?
I am so committed to the Sonos ecosystem that this makes no sense for me. Shame as I would love to stereo pair these.
Does it have Spotify connect?

Dito
Can this be connected to a tv also to act as a soundbar ?
There were some great bundle offers as described above. However, looks like bt have some out of their stock and have raised their prices

Depends on what you want though. I’m not sure the new larger nest hub with a screen will sound better then a dedicated speaker. These are sonos 5 level and very loud without distorting up to about volume 8. You could get a stereo pair for the same price as new nest hub I reckon.

They have reduced the input latency on a single speaker a large amount a few months ago. If your tv has analog out it is possible but also probably only likely if can adjust delay on tv too. Elsewhere read delay still lot for stereo pair so wouldn’t advise.
I had two of these in stereo pair and unlike my Sonos which are rock solid I had issues with them losing the pair on a variety of routers. Never had any issues with amazon echo pairs or Sonos, some with HomePod pairs and most with google home. In general this also applies to the applications respectively too. In the end they are decent enough individually so I use them in a group in two different rooms instead which is more reliable then the pair.

Thanks for reply but i dont really understand what you mean? Would i be able to a use a 3.5mm cable to connect to a tv ? what do mean a delay ?

Yes. Most modern TVs only support optical out so you’d need a converter but some still support analog (3.5mm). There was/ might be a slight delay in say a voice on the TV to the voice coming out the speaker. This review might help as he’s using it that way too.

Sync issues, mouth moves then sound is heard just after.

How is the sound of these compared to homepod? I have heard the homepod but not this and don't want to buy without knowing how they compare.

I think the HomePod is the best balanced all round smart speaker, especially for volume and quality to sound output for size. The max is an absolute beast for tracks with more bass and gets extremely loud without distorting (I just leave it on default eq) settings. One Max is about the same volume as stereo HomePods. In short it’s amazing if listen to rock, rap or bass driven music but not as good for acoustic or classical (by no means bad but just not as good vs one HomePod or play 5 or stereo sonos 1). Of course at this price it’s a bargain vs the others for same sound output levels.
