Much better now that you don't have to price match with the Quebec website.

Kinda weird. Sonos products never used to have sales. Now they have been on sale since Black Friday.

Competition is closing in?

Wow this was on the French company site yesterday. Now Best Buy has this on sale.

My 2 cents but I think this is aesthetically an ugly design compared to the cheaper Beam or the Playbar. Can't wrap my head around having something that looks like a big black slab lol.

Price seems right for me as I'm sure you're paying extra$ for the brand name "Sonos" :P

Rather go for a Yamaha YAS 207-B at this price point.

They haven't announced a new version of this yet, but it's possible they are blowing it out. Strange that it's on sale and not the Playbar, since they usually go in tandem.

I have the playbar and I love it. Only thing missing is Airplay. The Sonos app is...useable, but certainly not as simple as playing in a music app and "sending" the signal to the speaker. You can rectify that by using a 5.1 setup with a particular Sonos rear speaker that has Airplay, though.

All in all, if your TV is on a stand, and want a Sonos system, this is the best price I have ever seen on this product.

I had a Beam for a few weeks before I found a used Playbase on Kijiji for $450. The sound was significantly better with the Playbase in my opinion, especially with the bass. Can’t comment on the Playbar, but at this price I would highly recommend it.

Funny, I called last night, spoke with a rep and she spoke with a manager that rejected 10 price matches just before midnight EST. She claimed the one individual who had it approved would have it clawed back and cancelled.

Now this....

Just buy it for your wife and act all offended when she doesn't like it. Then she'll feel guilty and buy you a new TV to go along with it!

Think this is probably being discontinued. Reviews I read is that the sound quality is not as good as the Playbar.

Just bought one online. Already bought the Beam on BF from costco. If the playbase is significantly better I'll bring the Beam back.

Which one is better? The open box one or $449?
