Sonos Sale: Big discounts on Sonos One SL smart speaker and Sonos Beam soundbar

Building a Sonos multi-room speaker system can be quite expensive. Luckily, we’ve found a couple of excellent deals on the Sonos One SL wireless speaker and Sonos Beam soundbar at Best Buy that let you in on $50 worth of savings. Start setting up a superior sounding and incredibly easy-to-use home audio system one Sonos speaker at a time.

Sonos One SL — $130, was $180

The Sonos One SL is a solid sonic win from the American audio company, blending killer sound and a sleek and compact design. It looks identical and even works with the Sonos One smart speaker, which we deemed practically perfect in our review. But it also comes at a lower cost, although for that Sonos had to take away its Alexa integration. We still think that trade-off is fine because having two smart speakers doesn’t make much sense. Oh, and it’s not Bluetooth-capable but instead needs to be hooked up to your home Wi-Fi network for it to work. Right now, the Sonos One SL is on sale at Best Buy for $130 instead of $180 — a terrific $50 off.

The SL One is designed for both Sonos system integration and solo use, meaning you don’t have to pair it with another Sonos speaker. On its own, it works wonderfully well, with a rumbling bass that’s agile, punchy, and remarkably substantial for a speaker of its size. Its sophisticated sound signature reminded us a lot of, well, the Sonos One. This is all thanks to two custom-tuned amplifiers, a downward-firing tweeter, and a built-in mid-woofer, which all work together to provide an ultra-wide soundscape that can get incredibly loud without any distortion. Featuring 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity, you can access numerous music services through it. It also has built-in AirPlay 2 connectivity for controlling it remotely and streaming directly from your phone.

The Sonos One SL is a fantastic wireless speaker that works great both on its own and when integrated into your home theater setup. Get it for just $130 on Best Buy today.

Sonos Beam — $350, was $400

The Sonos Beam is the soundbar of the future, a potent hybrid of a soundbar and smart speaker that’s all Sonos. It promises to provide your home entertainment center with a rich cinematic sound plus Alexa-powered voice control. Best of all, it comes with a sticker price that won’t break the bank. You can get the Beam today at Best Buy for the discounted price of $350 instead of $400.

The Beam boasts a center-mounted tweeter, four full-range woofers, and three passive bass radiators that combined together provide an impressive room-filling sound that’s surprising for its relatively tiny dimensions. Sonos claims that the Beam’s sound signature is designed to enhance dialogue, and we can confirm that this is absolutely true. Words uttered by characters sound almost suspended in mid-air just in front of our TV’s screen, never drowned out even if the musical score booms at its loudest. Aside from the pristine quality it lends to dialogue, the Beam sounds equally great for music. Well, almost. It has a slightly more boxed-in sound, probably due to a mid-bass hump that adds to the illusion of deep bass, which seems to compromise the openness in the lower midrange. Still, it’s a terrific sound that a lot of people will appreciate, especially those who love orchestral music.

Alexa is no longer considered a novelty but her integration in soundbars is relatively new. Using voice commands, you can play a movie in the living room, a podcast in the kitchen, or stream any song everywhere when you set up multiple speakers. During our test, the Beam’s far-field microphones proved accurate and had no problem hearing our requests even if the music was blaring at max volume.

The Sonos Beam delivers a surprisingly powerful sound despite its slim and unobtrusive body. As the cherry on top of an already fantastic sonic cake, you get the voice control of your home entertainment system as well. Get it for $350 on Best Buy today.

Sonos One SL -- $129, was $179

The Sonos One SL is a solid sonic win from the American audio company, blending killer sound and a sleek and compact design. It looks identical and even works with the Sonos One smart speaker (see below), which we deemed as practically perfect. But it comes at a lower cost, and for that Sonos had to take away its Alexa integration. Which is fine because having two smart speakers doesn't make much sense. Oh, and it's not Bluetooth-capable but instead needs to be hooked up to your home Wi-Fi network for it to work. Right now, the Sonos One SL is on sale at Adorama for $129 instead of $179 -- a terrific $50 off.

First-generation Sonos One smart speaker prices drop to just $150
The Sonos One on a stand.

The Sonos One is easily one of the most capable, and terrific-sounding smart speakers on the planet. Right now, you can pick up the first-generation Sonos One for just $150 -- the lowest price it has been since it launched. Sonos reduced the price earlier this year, from $200 to $180, shortly after the second generation was announced, but now Best Buy has dropped it further, and it's an outstanding deal.

The Sonos One is not only a great smart speaker, with support for Amazon's Alexa -- and soon, Google Assistant -- it's also the cornerstone of what can evolve into a killer wireless home Wi-Fi sound system. Yes, it's true that there's now a second-generation model of the Sonos One, and that it is replacing the first-gen model, but we don't think that's cause to hesitate on this deal. The second-gen model has a faster processor, more onboard memory, and the addition of Bluetooth LE, but none of these changes affect how your music will sound, or how seamlessly the original Sonos One will fit into your daily audio routine. Moreover, Sonos has one of the best reputations in the industry for supporting its products on a longterm basis. Every Sonos speaker, or Connect device is still supported and works with every other Sonos product, both new and old. When Sonos eventually adds Google Assistant support, the Sonos One will become the first smart speaker to support both Google and Amazon's voice assistants, though you'll have to pick which one you want to use.

Sonos Beam smart soundbar -- $50 off

Soundbars are by far the easiest way to upgrade your home theater setup if you don't want to deal with the expense and hassle of setting up a surround-sound speaker system. Soundbars are also ideal for smaller homes or entertainment rooms where a full surround sound setup would be overkill, and Sonos ranks high among our favorites.
