Good price, I've seen a couple on ebay for £170 new, got one on there for £175 though can't remember the postage.
No idea why people are voting cold - haven't seen a better price. Hot!
Sonos needs to stop making the UK consumers the cash cow that keeps giving. The non-reduced price of this in the US is aroun £145 at the moment. You can get 2 for around £250. Their UK pricing is shameful.

You can apply that UK price hike to almost all companies

Sure can, but Sonos really do take it to the next level where $199 = £199 on their standard pricing. At least the $349 HomePod is £319, so you do get some credit for that exchange rate differences.

Fair enough, lets use something different as I forgot never mention an Apple product because that's the HUKD way :):

Echo Plus $150 vs £140
Echo $100 vs £90
Echo Show $230 vs £200

All more expensive in the UK, but at the same time they at least took some effort to make the prices slightly different. The Echo Dot is the anomaly in their range, but then that is a much lower price point anyway.
I should also add, I did vote hot because it is the cheapest, if you want a single unit, that I can see. It's not that this isn't a hot deal, more their pricing for the UK market goes beyond even other companies that use the UK as a cash cow.

You're right of course. But what can we do other than not buy these products?
Aren’t American prices before sales tax though? Genuine question as I always thought the same when comparing against US prices but in most American States they add the tax on at the till or when you checkout online from what i’ve read
Yet again, I fail to see how so much negative heat can be applied to something that is showing a good price when compared with what one could expect to pay elsewhere. I can only assume that the negative voters fit into one of the following groups:

1. They hate the Sonos (or whatever other) brand in general, for whatever personal reasons they have
2. They think it's overpriced in the first place and therefore couldn't possibly be a deal.
3. They don't fully understand the product or its capabilities
4. A sense of Schadenfreude - they see existing negative heat and just jump on the bandwagon
5. Regardless of the product, they go off on a tangent with comments that have nothing to do with the specific deal, such as the UK vs.US price discussion above

Personally, I do have to declare that I am a Sonos fan, having invested heavily in the system over several years, so I am keenly aware of current pricing. If others don't like the product, then fine.


But please don't knock a posting that might be seen as a deal to prospective buyers just because of your personal feelings of the brand concerned or a lack of product knowledge. It really goes against the whole ethos of this site and unfortunately appears to be happening all too often these days.

The UK price you have quoted includes VAT of 20%, so you need to take £23 off the Echo plus to make it £117. So about £10 more expensive in the UK at current rates

Same tired old argument that gets trotted out all the time by people who don't understand a) tax and b) international trading costs. If you compare the prices without tax, and use the exchange rate at the time the prices were probably set (a few months ago) you'll find there is almost no difference. Companies don't ajust their pieces every time teh £/$ rate shifts a few cents.
Bought 2 for £300 from currys last month, and richer sounds had similar deal, so not the best price they’ve been if you’re looking to buy more than 1.

So how come other companies, like Amazon, still manage to build in that difference in the price yet Sonos can't? Even if it was just $10 it's still something to say we understand there is a difference in price. I fully understand tax, and also tax in the US as I'm a regular visitor (my advice if you're in Philly or Washington, go to Delaware for your electronics ;)). I fully understand international trading costs, working for a global large enterprise for many a year.

Here's the thing, the EUR standard price is 205EUR.... that equates to around £185, compared to £200 in the UK. The import taxes are no different because it's the EU and we all know they can't have trade deals with Malaysia different in one country. The EU countries are paying less for their Sonos fix. I notice neither the EU or the US have a free trade agreement with Malaysia, meaning we're on WTO tariffs for both.

You believe that we're not seen as an excuse to add to the cost, I believe otherwise.

Not true..... you can't just take that blanket approach to the cost I'm afraid. In the US the states are allowed to set their own rates of sales tax. The difference in sales tax compare to the UK is big but ranges as well. If you made this purchase in Delaware then I'm afraid you need to add the full 20% back on. In most states you would be adding around 14-16% of that tax back on I'm afraid (it's fairly easy to avoid the local surcharges). So you can't just take 20% off.

The post I was replying to was quoting US prices before tax versus UK price with tax, to say Sonos charges substantially more in UK.

I remived UK tax, so as to compare tax free prices,Tax is irrelevant to the post I am responding too as it is out with Sonos control.

OK, so it was late last night and I'll now think about the UK prices without tax.....

£200 = £167 = $232 which sells for $200 in the US

Lets see what Germany pays for the same product, with their 19% sales tax:

€205 = €172 = $211 which sells for $200.

Obviously they have to factor in some fluctuations in currency, so I'm thinking along the lines that they can see Brexit going really badly and the £ reaching closer to $1.1, hence their pricing structure now. Yet some other manufacturers have managed to avoid this. I just find it very intriguing.
