Sonos Still The Best Choice
Sonos remains the best option for multi-room wireless speakers for your home, supporting the most streaming services, easy to use apps, and great quality sound from all its different models. Sonos is able access to all the streaming services (Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, etc.), all the world’s Internet radio stations, your iTunes library on your phone or computer, and any other music library you may have.
The choice between which model of Sonos you should buy depends are your particular needs. The Play:1, the Play:3, the Play:5, the Playbar, the Playbase, the Sub, the Connect and the Connect:Amp all work well with each other and alone.
Play:1 - $199 CAD
This is Sonos’ entry level and can stand alone or be paired with another Play:1 into a stereo setup. A compact form that easily sits on a shelf, the kitchen counter, the bathroom counter or anywhere else you can think of. Use the Play:1 to start your multi-room Sonos setup or add to your existing setup.
One - $249 CAD
Sonos One blends great sound with Amazon Alexa, the easy-to-use voice service, for hands-free control of your music and more. Use your voice to play songs while you cook. Tell Alexa to turn the volume up while you’re in the shower. You can even request a lullaby, out loud, when you’re tucking in the kids.
Play:3 - $379 CAD
A little larger sound and footprint than the Play:1, the Play:3 will fill a larger space with greater impact. Pair it together with another Play:3 and a Sub and you have a stereo setup that will impress you for many hours of listening.
Play:5 - $649 CAD
The biggest and best of the Sonos speakers. The Play:5 has more dynamics, range and volume than its smaller siblings. Still small enough to sit on a shelf and move around your home if you desire, the Play:5 will amaze and delight you with its quality of sound. The Play:5 can also pre paired into a stereo setup and have a Sub added for a full range stereo experience.
Playbar - $899 CAD
The Playbar significantly improves your listening enjoyment of TV series, movies and anything else that you are viewing on your TV. It connects to your TV’s optical digital output and can pair up with a Sonos Sub and a pair of Sonos speakers for an immersive 5.1 surround sound experience. The Sonos surround sound setup does away with the big complex AV receivers of the past and replaces it with wireless simplicity.
Playbase - $899 CAD
The Playbase is almost another form of the Playbar. The Playbase is intended to be placed beneath your TV stand and functions the same as the Playbar. Use it alone, with a Sub, with Sonos surround speakers, or with Sub and surround speakers.
Sonos Connect - $449 CAD
The Sonos Connect is not a speaker but instead brings all the Sonos eco-system to your existing HiFi gear. Simply connect to you stereo amplifier or AV receiver and have all functionality of Sonos. A digit output on the Connect allows you to connect to a high end DAC for top quality audio performance or instead use the Connect’s analog outputs for a simpler setup.
Sonos Connect:Amp - $649 CAD
The Sonos Connect:Amp is a Connect with a built in amplifier (55 watts x2). Connect this Sonos to your existing speakers and you have a complete Sonos solution. In homes where speakers are in the ceiling or walls, the Sonos Connect:Amp is a great addition for multi-room audio.
