Sonos SUB Review

 

When you decide to pick up a Sonos speaker, you decide to jump into an ever-expanding ecosystem of both hardware and software, with a brand that's dead set on pushing an immersive experience out to the customer. With the newest member of the family,...

The Sonos SUB is a massively expensive subwoofer made to be part of the full wireless speaker family for an equally giant price: $699 right out of the box. You do get free shipping and unlimited support from Sonos, and we're to understand that there's...

Review: Sonos Sub

 

Sonos has released a subwoofer to compliment its array of wireless Play speakers and Connect amps.

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...

That’s a lot of Simoleons. The tall, square-shaped doughnut design can be too bulky for some rooms, even laid flat

Sonos Sub review

 

More Info Sonos' wireless Sub adds extra thump to your Sonos system for $700 (ears-on) Sonos Play:3 review Sonos S5 ears-on review: a

Deep, tight bass ; Easy setup ; Unique design

Very expensive ; Can't be used with non-Sonos gear ; Dust magnet

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.

Sonos Sub review

 

The Sonos Sub wireless subwoofer is here to boost the bass on your existing Sonos setup, but is it worth the £600 price tag?

Simple set up ; Great industrial design ; Superb bass balance

Price

Our verdict on the Sonos Sub is tricky. On one hand you've got a mouth-wateringly expensive accessory for an already pricey range of products. On the other, you've got a truly brilliant piece of audio engineering that will transform turn your living...

Sonos SUB review

 

Gorgeous looks and stunning sound quality from the only subwoofer we've ever wanted to put on display

There's no getting away from the fact that the SUB is expensive, though. There's a lot of clever technology inside and it's incredibly simple to configure, but £599 for a subwoofer is a lot of money. This is particularly the case, when a matt-black...
