Sonos One SL Review


For those looking for a great sounding home speaker on a budget, the Sonos SL is a fantastic choice. It booms with such bass power and sings with such...

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.

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 review


Sonos One SL makes a good case for keeping voice control out of smart speakers with its great sound and cheaper price.

Excellent build quality and sound Apple Airplay 2 Trueplay Tune

No Bluetooth No hi-res audio support

Hate voice control? Or simply don’t need it on everything? This microphone-less version of the Sonos One – in effect a direct replacement of the Sonos Play:1 – can be stereo-paired with a Sonos One and also used as home cinema rear speaker if you’ve...

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.

Excellent sound, but Alexa drives me mad!!


Superb sound quality. Can play direct from Spotify without using the God awful Sonos app!! Pairing sometimes breaks and the left and right speaker sound out of sync breifly before catching up. However, over the last year Alexa has become more deaf and...

Exceptional performance!


I've always loved Sonos and decided to purchase the Sonos One SL to gradually replace the Play 1's. The sound and clarity from the SL is amazing and definitely sounds more encompassing when compared to the Play 1's. I currently have it all setup with...
