Announced earlier in September, the Sonos One SL and Sonos Port AirPlay 2 speakers are now available for purchase.
Sonos has released two new products for audiophiles everywhere. The wifi-enabled Sonos One SL speaker gives users a reasonably priced entry point into smart sound. The Sonos Port gives users a chance to incorporate their existing audio equipment into their smart home ecosystem.
Sonos One SL
Sonos One SL is a compact, fit-anywhere wifi speaker designed to seamlessly integrate into your life. At just over four pounds, it's easily carried from room to room.
Additionally, it's humidity resistant, giving it the ability to be use in high humidity spaces like bathrooms and kitchens without fear of damaging it.
The Sonos One SL is AirPlay2 compatible and works with over 100 streaming services, including Apple Music, Spotify, and more. Trueplay gives users the ability to tune speakers for a custom experience within their spaces.
Multiple Sonos One SLs can be paired with each other, or with the Sonos One. The Sonos app gives users the ability to group speakers together by room and control them as needed. If you've already got a Sonos Playbar, Playbase, or Beam, a pair of Sonos One SLs can be used as rear home theater surround sound speakers.
The Sonos One SL does not feature a microphone, which is likely a boon for those who want a bit of added security.
The Sonos One SL is available in both white and black and retails for $179.
The Sonos Port gives users the ability to turn their traditional stereo systems into smart devices.
Connecting a Sonos Port allows any amplified audio system to work with Apple's AirPlay2— stream music directly from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac with Siri integration. Additionally, users can stream music from most streaming services, like Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, and more.
Connecting the Sonos Port to your vinyl, cassette, or CD player will allow you to play your audio to other Sonos speakers through the Sonos app.
The Sonos Port features a sophisticated digital-to-analog converter, providing a crisp, clear listening experience.
The Sonos Port retails for $399 and can be purchased directly from the Sonos website.
