These support stereo mode which I imagine the sound will be fantastic with a pair.
This might make me keep the 2nd speaker instead of selling it.

It appears that all major retailers have it for $350 now. Places like Home Depot and Costco do not even show a discount. I wonder if this is just the new ongoing price...
$350 should have been the launch price from the start. At $499, that is just highway robbery.

True.

I am debating whether to get it. I tried to connect my mini to my bluetooth sound bar, which works initially but disconnects every few hours, so it gets annoying...

Maybe I should have bought the Chromecast Audio...

I took delivery of mine today, and I have to admit, with all the hype, the sound quality leaves a lot to desire.

It sounds muddled and fuzzy, almost as if the bitrates are low (I am using Spotify Premium).

Anybody else feel this way? Perhaps I was expecting too much, but there’s little clarity to the sound.
I don't know for certain as i don't have one, but looking at all the reivews and comparisons, it seems well known that the Play:5 and leaps and bounds better than the Google Home Max in regards to sound quality.

If i wanted a smart speaker first, i'd probably get this one. If i wanted a high quality audio speaker first that was wireless, i'd go the Sonos route. To me , sound quality is #1 which is why I went with a pair of Play:5's
