Sonos One SL review


A Sonos One without voice control is still a great wireless speaker

Works in stereo with Sonos One ; Open, clean sound ; Solid and agile bass

No Bluetooth support

Whether stereo paired, added to a home theatre set-up or used solo, at this level it’s a solid sonic win from Sonos

Sonos One SL speaker initial review: An updated Play:1 with great design and privacy


With a design and internals the same as the Sonos One, the Sonos One SL has all the foundations to be another fantastic speaker from Sonos and one

Compact design ; Great Sonos features ; AirPlay 2 support ; Voice control with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant-compatible device ; Great sound potential

Odd name ; More expensive than Play:1 it replaces

With a design and internals the same as the Sonos One, the Sonos One SL has all the foundations to be another fantastic speaker from Sonos and one that meets the needs of those after a little more privacy too.

Sonos One SL


The Play:1 has finally been put to bed, replaced by the One SL. The cheapest Sonos speaker is without voice control but does everything else.

If you're looking for good sound that won't break the bank, and have an AirPlay compatible device or aren't fussed by the lack of a Bluetooth connection the will serve you well.

Perfect job for surround sound


I bought these pair of Sonos one to act as surround speakers to my Sonos beam and I wasn't disappointed as they even over qualified for the job. The sound quality is superb and the whole living room is buzzing when we watch tv. Massive difference to...
