Cyber Monday is as good a time as any to snap up a smart speaker (or two or three) to build out your home audio setup, and here’s some welcome news for those who’ve been dithering over whether to buy Sonos’ most powerful model. The Sonos Five is 20 percent off for Cyber Monday. The smart speaker has dropped from $549 to $439. It’s a one-day-only deal, so you’ll need to act quickly if you’re interested.
We reckon the Sonos Five is the best smart speaker for music lovers. In truth, it’s more of a connected speaker than a smart speaker, since it doesn’t have a built-in voice assistant. If you already have other Sonos speakers or don’t mind setting up an Echo Dot or Nest Mini so you can control the Five with Alexa or Google Assistant, that won’t be too much of an issue.
The Sonos Five delivers the highest quality audio of any device in our round-up of the best smart speakers. It certainly sounds better than any other Sonos model. The Sonos Five pumps out audio with more bass, clarity and stereo separation than many other smart speakers. If you can swing it, we recommend picking up two units and pairing them in a stereo setup for even better music playback.
Folks who aren’t quite willing to splash out that much cash on a Sonos device may be pleased to learn that many of the company’s other speakers and soundbars are also on sale through the end of November 27. Sonos home theater devices are up to 20 percent off, while you can save up to 25 percent on portable speakers. Most of the products pair together seamlessly, so you can, for instance, set up two Era 100 speakers ($50 off at $199) as surrounds for a second-gen Sonos Beam ($100 off at $399) for a great home theater system.
