Sonos PLAY:1 wireless speakers retail in the US for $149 each. However, Amazon is now selling a two-set pack for $298. While that on its own does not result in an actual discount, the retailing giant is also throwing in a $30 Amazon gift card for free. So you can either view this as a $30 discount off the price of all three purchases, or simply just a great freebie for future use. Either way, if you’re in the market for some new speakers, and considering Sonos speakers almost never go on sale, this is a deal worth taking advantage of.
With this being a two-pack, the user is able to either use the two speakers in the same room or in different rooms. If opting for the latter, the two can either exclusively be used as independent speakers for playback within each room, or coupled to play in chorus. Besides being a wireless speaker and one the user can stream music to, the Sonos PLAY:1 also supports Amazon’s Alexa technology so if you already happen to own an Alexa-enabled device you’ll also be able to control one or both of the speakers by voice commands alone. Which also means you can actually forgo the smartphone connection altogether and just ask Alexa to play music from a number of popular streaming services, or tune into an internet radio station, or play a podcast or an audiobook.
