Our top equipment picks
Small but mighty
Don’t let its size fool you.
The One is Sonos’s smallest and most affordable speaker yet, and it’s also one of our favorites. In addition to acting like an Alexa smart speaker and seamlessly connecting with all other Sonos devices, the Sonos One also sounds downright fantastic. For such a small size, this thing packs a serious punch.
For your home theater
The only soundbar you’ll ever need.
There are tons of TV soundbars out there, but the Sonos Beam is one of the few you should really care about. It sounds incredible, can be paired with two Sonos Ones for 5.1 surround sound and a Sonos Sub for extra bass, and can be set up with Alexa as a smart speaker. This thing does it all.
