Great price.
What's the bass like on these?
I want a sub and a beam to go with my Ones but can't justify the cost. Would this be a reasonable compromise?

Pretty bloody good actually. Just got one to replace my Beam which will be relegated to the bedroom. Sure the sub will be a lot better but like you I can't justify the crazy price.

The bass is surprisingly good but adding a sub makes it a different beast altogether. Our living room is huge - we have a playbar and two play 3s for a surround sound system - adding a sub makes films amazing.
I had a denon receiver and kef 3001 5.1 surround previously but needed to get rid of cables and sonos has been incredible. Obviously not as advanced - Dolby atmos etc but the simplicity and lack of wires makes up for it.
I have just ordered a playbase for the man cave - but if a luxury but I think it’s worth it

Standalone is it a marginal difference in terms of the sub . Trialling a sub st moment but it there is bass similar from this I would get This.. does this work without the tv on

It works the same as the beam/bar, and will play from the app or airplay without the TV being on, for things like music.
Would love this barring a few issues in my setup. First, it's MASSIVE, so I've no idea how I'd place it in the room, the TV is on the wall and there is no unit for it to live on. Secondly, the lack of Dolby Atmos at this price really is off putting somewhat.

I think if you Have a wall mounted tv you may be better looking at the playbar which can be wall mounted. Flexson do a nice mount.
Regarding Dolby atmos - if you are looking at a wireless system then you can’t really get towards atmos yet and a decent set up would cost a lot more- this price is small in comparison to a mediocre atmos set up.
I had a decent, midrange Dolby atmos setup at my last house and the costs were:
Denon receiver £499
Kef 3001 satellite speakers x 5 £600
Kef powered sub £300
Kef ceiling speakers x 2 £280
Speaker cable £100
Installation, plastering and redecorating £400
Total install: £2179
The difference in cost over a Sonos 5.1 (plabase/bar, sub and 2 x play 1/3s) is at least £500 but the hassle-free benefit of not hiding wires is incredible!
