Find the right Sonos speaker for you
Interested in Sonos speakers but not sure where to begin, or just looking for the best deal on your next Sonos bundle purchase?
We provide a great place to start by recommending some of our most popular Sonos bundles as well as their best features.
Important things to know about all Sonos speakers
1) They connect to your WiFi wirelessly. The Sonos Home speakers do not support Bluetooth for many reasons, primarily because WiFi provides a superior experience in a home audio application.
2) Music is streamed to the speakers on the Sonos app via either a paid music streaming service, free radio, AirPlay 2 (on some speakers only) or an imported iTunes collection.
3) Each speaker is assigned a room name, so you know what you are controlling if you have multiple speakers. You can then group the same audio to multiple speakers at the same time, or you can assign each room its own music.
4) Sonos is the leading company for multi-room audio. If you would like to get music in multiple rooms, Sonos’ software is completely robust, simple to use and sounds fantastic.
Best Sonos Bundle for Surround Sound on a Budget
If you’re looking for a high-quality surround sound system that’s less complicated, wireless and most importantly, affordable, then look no further than the Sonos Beam + 2 x Sonos One SL speakers.
The new Sonos Beam soundbar released in July 2018, has won WhatHiFi best soundbar in the £300 - £500 price point for 2 years running (2018 and 2019).
Prior to July 2018, the cheapest Sonos soundbar was the Playbar or Playbase, both at £699 each. Sonos recognise this is an extra premium price for a soundbar, but they are still popular because of their superior cinema-quality sound and integration with your wider Sonos system.
Sonos wanted a cheaper alternative to offer customers in the soundbar market, hence the Sonos Beam.
The sound quality of the Sonos Beam still beats many other soundbars on the market as well as offering award-winning software through the easy-to-use Sonos app.
Being smart too, it also has Amazon Alexa voice control built-in and AirPlay 2, which is ideal for Apple users who are able to cast audio straight from an iPhone or iPad to the Beam.
When you add 2 x Sonos One SL to the Beam for surround sound, it comes to the same price as a Sonos Playbar, meaning you can benefit from wireless surround sound for less.
Best features of Sonos Beam & 2 x One SL
- AirPlay 2 built-in
- Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant built-in
- Speech Enhancement
- Night Mode

Best Sonos Bundle for discreet audio
If you want room-filling sound but don’t want your room filled with audio equipment, then in-ceiling speakers might be the solution for you.
These are ideal if you are planning an extension or your home is in first fix stage as speaker cable runs behind the walls and ceilings to receive the power from the amplifier.
Just like any other Sonos speaker, you can set your ceiling speakers up as an additional Sonos zone, capable of grouping audio to or from other speakers or playing its own music.
Following the release of the new supercharged Sonos Amp in early 2019, we have many bundle deals available consisting of a Sonos Amp and a pair of in-ceiling speakers.

- Aesthetic audio with no visible wires
- Ideal for families with kids who don’t have to worry about speakers on the floor
- AirPlay 2 for easy, wireless control
