Same price at JL.
Not a deal. Its a typical price also being sold on Amazon

Amazon and John Lewis have price matched Sonos's offer. No white available at JL
standard price
This IS a deal as it's a twin pack with a discount, usually only available individually boxed but this is the second year they have run this offer.

Been this price since May according to camel.
uk.camelcamelcamel.com/SON…LZM
Sonos run specials. There is nothing to say that a retailer cannot buy in big stock and continue selling beyond the sonos offer period. The price has not been widely available for the last 2 months.
hello, camel is showing that price but it's been oos for a few months since this 'offer' first came to market and sold out earlier in there year.
What a beautiful pair.
well it's cheaper than £169 each so IMO it's a deal regardless of how long it has been running.

Thank you. I'm sure some people who are looking for Sonos this Christmas without knowing too much about them may find the deal helpful. May not have knowledge that it has been that price (albeit OOS) since May.

i was going to buy these two days ago and they were at £338 so glad I waited. Thanks OP!
It is a deal, I was going to post the same thing but realised you'd already beaten me to it ha! Cheers OP

That's the whole point of this site, the people will decide if it's a good deal or not by voting - and by the looks of it they seem to judge it a "hot" deal
£300 for 2 speakers... am I missing something :-)

Nice but pricey imho for what it does... but still a deal for people in the market when one speaker is £169.

You certainly are missing something. Sonos is a fantastic ecosystem with top quality speakers. Can't go wrong with it. And they are in it for the long haul unlike other electronic brands that bring out wireless systems and then drop / change them on a regular basis.
Thought these were each about £100 via Amazon EU sites. At least much less than rrp.
Genuine question, can I play my ITunes match library on these either standalone or via my iPhone?

I'm certainly not dissing it.. I know its a very good product my friend owns one and loves it, I just wished it was a little bit cheaper than I could justify buying one myself. Looks like a nice bit of kit for sure, but it cost more than my monthly mortgage so think i'll be waiting for some awesome Black Friday deal to pop up first :P

You dont say.I'm not disputing its a good price but in my opinion its not a deal if its the same price its always been. It isnt a reduced price and other sellers are selling it at the same price therefore its not a deal. Some Sheeple.

It is a reduced price because I went to buy these two days ago direct from Sonos and they were £338 (as in no discouhnt from being 2 individual ones), now it is £299.

If you don't have Sonos then you are missing something.

Brilliant system, but not cheap if you want to do it properly with the sound bars, subs etc. Very much worth it though.

Kind of. You *have* to download any music to the iPhone before playing it - it's because Sonos don't have Airplay built in and Apple don't allow third party access to iCloud.

Strange that Sonos increased there 2 pack then as when released they were £299 and Amazon has been selling them for £299 but you say 2 days ago at Sonos they were £338 and now £299. Call it a deal if you want, I would have just bought them from Amazon.

Well that's me out then, how in this day and age can a high end speaker manufacturer add so many 'sources' but leave out Airplay?
Good to see this offer back on again. The Sonos Play 1 is a great little speaker for it's size and even more so now TruePlay tuning is available through the app. I've certainly noticed that it's improved the sound of mine.

In my opinion two of these used as a stereo pair sound better than my Play 5. Not as powerful but a better soundstage,.

Not sure if you are being deliberately obtuse but this 2-pack has not been available for quite a while, including Amazon. This is a deal. Sonos haven't changed the price, they simply weren't available and had to be purchased individually.

It's not a case of 'No stock' it was a limited deal. That deal expired, back up to full price. The deal is now being repeated. I bought an additional Play 1 2 months ago and they were only available individually. This is a deal.

Correct - no idea why rhinopaul is bleating on about it not being a deal. The comments plus 193 degree heat so far says otherwise. As mentioned, the Amazon price may be on camel camel but with no stock they could have put any old price on it. RRP is £169 per speaker although most places have them at £163 each. If you were after 2 of these this is a saving that wasn't here yesterday and is now for a limited period, if you can't see that this is a deal then vote cold and move on to the next post and moan about that.

With respect, you're missing the point. There's nothing about this site that states that "deal" has to be a reduced price from an RRP or compared to other retailers.

Just because this item has always been £299 doesn't mean it's "not a deal". The OP has posted the deal to help make people aware - it will go hot or cold or somewhere in between. It's helpful to comment and suggest other retailers that are the same price and if you feel it's not a deal don't vote or vote cold. Why you feel the need to reply to every other comment that it's "not a deal" is beyond me - why not let people decide for themselves?

I have a decent sized living room with these as a stereo pair and sound fantastic. Play 5 in other part of house doesn't quite sound as good.
