Ah k thanks for the reply. I've already got a pair of play ones though. I haven't got a grand for a pair of play 5s. I think I'll look for a second hand sonos sub..they seem to be holding their money well though
I would go for a stereo system any day. Doesn't matter how good the Mu-So is, the speakears are simply not far apart enough to create a good stereo effect. We have a faily large kitchen and a pair of Ones fills it nicely. We used to have a single unit before and separating the sound into widely spaced left and right speakers makes a world of difference. Here's an alternative to your idea of a pair of Ones and a Sub: with a pair of Fives you could easily get away without a Sub. It really boils down to what you can accommodate more easily. Smaller speakers with a Sub or larger speakers and no Sub.
What's better, this, or a sonos subwoofer with 2 x play 1?
Remember hearing one of these in John Lewis and it was superb!
You are right. I think the second one does but this old style room placement settings for some tonal balance.
