Sonos’ audio experts have now stocked their official online shop with this year’s Black Friday deals early this week, offering a total of six speakers from its in-house portfolio of multi-room speakers, soundbars and subwoofers with a flat – rate price reduction of 20 percent.
Until 28 Nov
Among the devices included in the Black Friday campaign are several home cinema sets, the two TV soundbars Sonos Arc and Sonos Beam, the bass speaker Sonos Sub and the two compact single room speakers Sonos One and Sonos One SL. Also discounted: the on-the-go speaker Sonos Roam.
While the Sonos Roam is a combined Bluetooth and Wi-Fi speaker that has an integrated battery and can also be used on the go if necessary, the two Sonos One speakers are designed exclusively for use in the home network and are simply distinguished by their compatibility with the various voice assistance systems supported by Sonos.
With and without language assistance
The Sonos One has a handful of built-in microphones and can possibly be used in combination with Amazon Alexa and the Google voice assistant Hey Google. Sonos has also been building its own voice assistant for some time, which (at least in English) is already in the public testing phase.
The Sonos One SL, on the other hand, doesn’t have built-in microphones, so it doesn’t even have the technical requirements to enable voice communication with Google or Amazon. A good mnemonic here is SL = Silent. In our opinion, the Sonos speakers are the best multi-room sound system on the market.
