Face With Tears Of Joy... yes

PS. When streaming to a Home device, you don't get those options, it's either 'save bandwidth' or nothing.

I'm curious what RFD'ers with Sonos Ones think, or Apple Homepod.

Got my first of two Google Home Max yesterday, the thing is absolutely awesome. Much prefer it over the Sonos Play:3 I had previously. Receiving my second one today or tomorrow - not sure why they shipped them out seperately.

Same here. I prefer the Google Home Max vs my 2x Sonos Play 1's so far. Sounds amazing.

What is the difference between max and mini? Only a better and bigger speaker?

huge difference sound quality for these 2 models.. I have the one in the middle, regular Google Home and the speaker is more than adequate as a kitchen radio.

Anyone using the Max as a dedicated TV soundbar/ sound system?

I picked up the Costco Vizio 5.1 sound bar for my Samsung KS8000 and it was disappointing for me, incremental improvement and a little bit extra bass. I think it was $200 plus tax for the sound bar.

The Max obviously has other functionalities (I have 2 minis) but it is priced at $350 plus tax and I'm looking for feedback.

if anyone is just looking for 1 with a smaller discount, i pricematched the chalk color at visions and got a coupon code. I've decided not to buy it though due to budget constraints....
if anyone wants it at visions you can use my discount code PBEAT-0E4191A7. the code brings the price down to $326.50 plus tax. code expires end of day march 16

Probably a price error but they honored it for all orders.
Wow, warm up the time machines!

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.
That's strange. Maybe a defective unit? The vast majority of online reviewers including those that review high-end speakers say that the sound quality is very very good.

This $600 for 2 thing is annoying. Might buy one if it's straight $300 for one.

Find a friend to split with. I bought two and then found a coworker and sold for $350 no tax. Even more savings for myself and a good deal for my coworker. Risk/reward.
