The Sonos One is going cheap on Amazon right now

The online retailer has knocked 10% off the smart speaker, bringing it down to £179

Of all the ways to get Alexa into your home, the Sonos One is among the very best. Not only is Amazon’s very own voice assistant baked-in as standard, but the voice-controlled smart speaker also delivers simple setup, multi-room versatility and excellent sound quality in equal measure.

Best of all, though, Amazon has slashed the price of the Sonos One by a healthy 10% in the lead-up to Christmas 2018, bringing it down to just £179.

For that money, you’ll reap the benefits of Sonos’ brilliantly simple, flexible multi-room wireless music system along with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant (which one you use will likely depend on where your tech loyalties lie).

This means you can start and control music with your voice, and manage all of your tunes in one place. Indeed, since the Sonos One isn’t tied to any single manufacturer, you can access all the major streaming services including Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music.

The sound quality of that music isn’t half-bad, either. If you closed your eyes and listened to your tunes through the Sonos One, you wouldn’t think it was a small speaker. It has significantly more energy and impact than you’d expect from a product with such a tiny footprint. If it’s still not enough, you can, of course, pair two Sonos One’s together in the same room for a full stereo experience.

Alongside its impressive music functionality, the Sonos One can also replicate the features of other Alexa-powered products. You can ask it about the weather, nearby shops and services, and set alarms using your voice. And since Sonos is continually adding enhanced features, services and skills, your music and voice options will keep getting better over time.

As previously mentioned, £179 is a veritable snip for all these features. It’s the cheapest we’ve seen it on Amazon outside of the Black Friday sales, and significantly less than the comparable Samsung R3 and R5, which retail for £249 and £350 respectively.

Sold on the Sonos One? Then you might want to pair it with some of the other products in Sonos’ range to begin building the ideal multi-room sound setup for you. The PLAY:1 (£139) speaker represents a cheaper option, albeit without the added benefit of voice control, and the Beam soundbar (£389) could be ideal for enhancing your living room’s setup.
