Conclusion: Considering all that it offers, we can heartily recommend the Sonos Sub. And yeah, we realize that, at $699, it ain’t cheap. But no other sub that we’re aware of combines such a small form factor with this kind of potent, high-quality bass in one heck of an aesthetically pleasing package.
Conclusion: It's a lot to pay for a subwoofer that can't be used with non-Sonos hardware. If you can swing the cost, though, you'll get a tremendous boost to sound quality that integrates smoothly with a full Sonos network.
Pros: Deep, tight bass, Easy setup, Unique design
Cons: Very expensive, Can't be used with non-Sonos gear, Dust magnet
Excerpt: Sonos is still the leader when it comes to wireless, multi-room audio systems. With a dead-easy setup routine, well-designed controller apps, and the ability to play music from both your local stash of MP3s and all the big streaming services , the palindromic home audio supplier is playing with a...
Pros: Sound is excellent, on par with the rest of Sonos’ speakers. Well-designed dual-driver subwoofer with dual class-D amps offer efficient and distortion-free boom. Sleek looks make the 16-inch-tall box disappear into your ultra-modern decor. Just over 6 inches tall when laid flat, so it can slip un...
Cons: That’s a lot of Simoleons. The tall, square-shaped doughnut design can be too bulky for some rooms, even laid flat.
Summary: A fantastic-sounding sub for people already with Sonos gear that are looking for better overall sound. You will need plenty of disposable cash to make it worth your while, but if you fancy treating yourself this month your ears will thank you.
Pros: Thumping bass sounds great; Good build quality; Looks good; Easy set up.
Summary: There’s no denying that the Sonos SUB is a great bit of kit. It looks amazing, is a piece of cake to set up and gives a marked improvement to the audio quality of an existing Sonos system. However, £599 is also undeniably expensive for a subwoofer that can only ever be paired with other Sonos gear.
Excerpt: If there's one thing you could be sure of/ in AV, it's that subwoofers are big, ugly and difficult to position correctly. We say 'could' because Sonos has just changed that with its SUB, the first subwoofer that we'd actually be proud of displaying.
Conclusion: Schon bislang stellte der Sonos SUB eine interessante Erweiterung für Sonos PLAY:3, Sonos PLAY:5 und Sonos CONNECT:AMP dar. Mit der neuen Sonos PLAYBAR aber hat er seine wahre Bestimmung gefunden.
Pros: Einfache Integration ins SonosNet, mit Sonos PLAY:3, Sonos PLAY:5, Sonos CONNECT:AMP und Sonos PLAYBAR kombinierbar, sehr pegelfest mit beeindruckendem Klangbild, flexibel platzierbar, elegantes Design
