I use Google Play Music, and you can stream it directly to the Sonos speakers, so don't have to use it that often...

I guess this post is for people who are interested in Sonos and not for those who just want to bash the product. There are lots of expensive things in life, you don’t have to buy any of them.

Yamaha do some nice stuff, I’m glad that you’re happy with your set up.

I called my local store first thing this morning and they agreed to price match drake displays at £1329.99... awesome I reserved the TV and agreed to collect in the morning.

Had Pioneer tuner and amp then, first hi-fi was Amstrad reciever then Rotel 802, those were the days.
This appears to be a cracking deal. Spec mentions an HT mode so might also appeal to those wanting to add to and improve their existing av set ups. I currently have absolutely no need for it myself but at this price I'm quite tempted to buy one as a spare in case any of my amps call it a day without warning! Very hot!
Cold not as good as Bose or beats.

I've got the 2400, it has 95w vs 80w for stereo, 4k upscaling, 8 vs 6 HDMI inputs,but pretty much everything else is identical. I wouldn't say the 2400 is worth £70 more though. I'd have got this one had the price difference been the same at time of purchasing. Ended up getting the 2400 for a tenner more than what the 1400 was.

They're passive speakers so no. The AV powers them.


The Sub Woofer is always active so this will power down automatically when not needed.

I would suggest you make the most of a Dolby Atmos enabled receiver and stretch to the Onkyo SKSHT588 5.1.2 (£379 from RS) as a starter package.

You should also consider the Yamaha RX-V583 (£289) as it is similar in spec to the Denon but Yamaha's tend to be more reliable. (Under £670 for a Atmos 5.1.2 system is not bad going.

OOS and Superfi have just told me no more stock is coming. Expired ?
Great wee speaker. My only gripe is that they didn’t also include Bluetooth connection as an option with these. Would like to be able to connect sometimes where I don’t have access to broadband. Have both white and black colour. IMO the white is cleaner and more modern looking but everyone will differ on that depending on their taste.

Have an echo dot connected with one of mine but not the best integration as I’m with Apple Music. Hardly surprising I suppose with Apple, Amazon and google all fighting it out......

There are loads of network tuners, they basically connect to satellite dish or antenna and the network somewhere in the house but are accessible to the entire house. look up HDHomerun, Triax TSS-400, Megasat etc.

I'll take a look at that thanks although that is more aimed at the freesat box version but I think there is some crossover. Maybe the freeview version first and then ported onto freesat. Either way I think I've got a lot of reading ahead.

Also I think the fox boxes seem to be the most modifiable so maybe why they hold their value.

Theoretically a 4 ohm amp and 4 ohm speaker could allow a full power transition to the speaker. In the real world this never happens as nothing is 100% efficient. Cable resistance (loss) is also another factor.

However it might be worth looking at other alternatives if all you need is an optical switch.....the technology in AVRs is updated soooo fast these days, and they depreciate massively. (My 4 year old £1k Pioneer is now worth less than £150) If you are going to be getting a full suite of speakers in the next 3 months, go for it, but if more than six months, it would probably be worth looking into HDMI switches, or a second hand but much older AVR, eg a Denon 1911 could be picked up for £50-£75 (but won't pass through 4k if you need that).fwiw, a set of speakers to do this justice will be £1k to £2.5k. Of course it will work with lesser speakers, but you could use a much cheaper AVR and not notice the difference.

So, possibly a stupid question. Could I hook up a bunch of inputs to this (multiple consoles, Sky box, CD player etc) and then output sound to a soundbar via HDMI/optical?

I know it wouldn't get the best out of the unit by a long way, but I'd need to save up for a bit before buying a full set of speakers. Is the method I've outlined possible in the interim?

I used to have the pressure effect with my Bose, but a software update (late last year?) seems to have fixed it for me. Just bought another pair, thanks OP
JL seem to have got wise, declined my price

Either its the amp then or your are doing something wrong. Can't possibly be that every single speaker isn't working. Have you tried just having the two fronts plugged in?

Have the Bronzes ever been granted Silver standard tweeters?

You keep telling yourself that.From a performance perspective, Hi-Fi sound …You keep telling yourself that.From a performance perspective, Hi-Fi sound reproduction is a mature technology, and has been for decades. That means stereo. It means big speakers. It means quality, discrete, mostly analogue electronics. Because that model delivers the best, most authentic, most immersive experience. It's all about quality. Quality analogue electronics don't come cheap; Quality full range speakers don't come small.Bluetooth speakers, sound bars, surround-sound-in-a-box, even Sonos: It's all just mass market, plastic, convenience-driven, short-life-span, disposable crap. Like it or not, it doesn't even hold a candle to the best technology of the 1950s (e.g. Quad ESL57 & Quad II). Not by a long shot. For that reason, much of that equipment still exists and is still serviceable, 60 years later! More broadly speaking, there's still a niche but significant market for traditional stereo HiFi today, despite prolonged predictions of its demise. It's not gone away because it's still the benchmark for performance, whatever the budget.Components like these Tannoy speakers reside near the bottom of the ladder, but with a decent amp, they'll comfortably out-perform any mass-market, app-controlled, wireless, one-box widget. Try it


I'd hate to think what my HiFi costs, I know it's in thousands.
It annoys me when I go to a retailer and they insist on giving me a demo of some "magic" box that does everything, just because I was curious having a look at it, then I cringe when they proceed to tell me how I will be blown away and that hifi separates are outdated.

True active speakers (i.e. crossover before amplification) have also been around for decades, and can offer some of the very best performance and value. In fact, that's what I use (ATC). I've also had plenty of passive kit. That can sound just as spectacular - but usually at greater expense and with more clutter than a well sorted active system. Dynaudio kit is almost all superb, active or passive. There's no 'one way' to do it when it comes to performance, and personal preference also comes into it. I should also say that you can still enjoy convenience and performance, but just don't expect both from one small box.


No that I can entirely agree :-) sorry it s just I see too many people defending 80's hifi tech. In the end because of this it s hard to find a goood affordable active, digital souce and wireless system. Yes atc dynaudio kef etc...do a very good job but it s not very affordable is it?

But you are so wrong in saying that 80's passive speakers with separate elements are better than today s technology. Look up dynaudio activ speakers for example. Wireless is done by wifi which has almost no loss compared to bluetooth. Real active spraker use one amp per woofer and tweeter which is much better than loss prone passive filters. This tech has been used in studio monitors for years and for a good reason. Your kind of reasoning is why most modern hifi is either crap mono bluetooth speaker or 80 s outdated tech. It s sad how much progress we have made in so many industries but hifi. I used active studio monitors and feed them wireless music through a 30 pound chromecast audio and I m very happy with the sound. My wife not so much with the looks. Sadly only a couple brands like dynaudio kef are ready to take the technology leap...because of you 80 s music ancestors sad....tannoy makes great studio monitor I dare to try the 8 inch reveal against those tower speakers

Although currently OOS (so will probably get rated cold), you can order now for delivery at this price, in Black or Blue. Citron is still £149.95.
John Lewis have price matched these for me if anyone wants to buy them from there instead. Just email them...
Got these last week for a present. Was OOS as well when I checked but within a day was available again. Couldn’t find price close to this last week but see some prices closer to 130.00 now as opposed to 149.95 from Bose. Think there is 2 year guarantee from superfi for these.
