There's a Sonos sale going on right now. We're big fans of Sonos speakers here on the WIRED Gear team. The speakers often have best-in-class audio, and they're designed entirely around the idea of building a network of speakers in different rooms of your home. Sonos has been making connected audio equipment for more than a decade now, and the company supports its products for long stretches of time; someone who bought a Sonos amp in 2005 can probably play Spotify on the thing today without hassle.
You can learn more about how Sonos came to be in our profile of Nick Millington, one of the company's most prolific inventors.
This week, Sonos has put its soundbars and subs on sale, likely to capitalize on the TV deals happening through Super Bowl weekend. The deals will end midnight on Sunday, February 3, after the big game. Regardless of the reason, it's good news if you're looking to buy a soundbar. (If you don't own a soundbar for your TV, you really should. Here are some of our favorites.)
Sonos Stuff on Sale
Our Sonos Buying Guide also goes more in depth on the strengths and shortcomings of every product mentioned above, but here are a few highlights. The Sonos Sub carries a hefty price tag, but if you can afford it, buy it and stick it next to your couch. It will dramatically improve the immersive qualities of any of the three soundbars.
The Playbar has the best sound of the three, but the Beam isn't far behind and has hands-free Alexa (and soon Google Assistant) built into it. It looks better, has newer tech inside, and sounds outstanding with or without the Sub. We like the Playbase, but high-pitched sounds like cymbals do feel a bit harsh on it. It's also made for a TV with a pedestal stand to sit atop it, and those are out of fashion at the moment. Also, if you need a longer power cable, Sonos now sells them .
