      Best Speaker with Voice Assist

      Posted

      Hello Everyone The negative reviews are a bit over zealous IMO. Sonos advised of the Sonos One limitations at launch with promises to add more music services and voice assists in the coming months. One also has to assume that commands will improve as well. I own both the Echo Dot and Google Home and both are finicky at times. Nuf said on that so here's my impression of the Sonos One. I picked -up my pair of Sonos One's on release date 10/24/17. I'm a current user of Sonos products (i.e. Play 5_2nd Gen x 2 / Play 3 x2 / Play 1 x 2 / Sub x 2 / Sound Bar / Boost / Connect x 2). I provided my equipment information to qualify my statement that setup of the Sonos One's was very easy; as quite a few pre-release reviews indicated that setup was rather involved. I didn't find that to be the case and that's probably due to my familiarity with Sonos speakers and accessories. That said…for those of you considering buying the Sonos One as your first Sonos product here are a few tips: (1) Download the Alexa App first and setup your account. By doing so, setting up Alexa in the Sonos One will go a lot smoother. (2) Download the Sonos App (it won't recognize anything until you plug-in the Sonos One) (3) If you are going to setup The Sonos One as a wireless speaker (not connected via Ethernet) be sure that your routers 2.4Ghz band is broadcasting; as Sonos products prefer it. (4) If you have a weak Wi-Fi signal (reference where you are setting up the Sonos One) you may want to consider incorporating the Sonos Boost ($99) and using the Sonos Mesh network. (5) Visit the Sonos website for great information on how-to's for wired, Wi-Fi and Boost setup (6) Assuming you’ve passed Sonos Setup 101_you’re ready to begin setting up your Sonos One speaker(s). (7) Plug in your Sonos One (or both if you have two and intend using them as a Stereo pair), open the Sonos App and follow instructions. (8) After setting up the speaker(s)…Setup Alexa! Here's what I found setting up the Sonos One's in stereo pair… Alexa will respond over the speaker you are standing the closest too (left or right). When standing center Alexa in my tests defaulted to the left speaker. I have Google Home connected to my Play 5’s via line-in over Chrome Cast. Interestingly when the Sonos One’s are Grouped to a speaker or speakers in another room the Sonos One will pause and stop music via Alexa even though it was initiated via Google Home. You can learn about Grouping on the Sonos website. As with my Sonos Play 1’s music on the Sonos One’s sounds great if not slightly better (probably just my wishful thinking). Alexa aside the Sonos One performs with the same functionality as the Play 1 in every aspect which is really no surprise. All Alexa features worked as they should (I had an Echo Dot prior to the Sonos One). The market that Sonos pioneered is getting more competitive every day. Comparatively speaking there are probably better speakers sonically on the market as well. However, if Sonos keeps their promise (and they usually do) to add more features in the coming months for music choices and voice assistants...the Sonos One IMO will be the best wireless speaker on the market at its size and price point. Just FYI, I sold my three (3) year old pair of Sonos Play 1's for 67.5% of the original cost before tax. Not bad considering the Sonos One does not bond with a Sonos Play 1 (at least not today)

      Good Sound but Major Flaw w/ Amazon Music

      I purchased to replace a first generation Amazon Echo that I mainly use to play music, control a few devices, maintain a shopping list and to assist with measurements and questions around the kitchen. First the positive, the Sonos, as expected, has very good sound, especially when compared to the original Echo. It has good bass and clarity for its size. The initial setup, while a little convoluted with having to jump between apps, was fairly straight forward, just make sure to follow the directions exactly. After the setup, Alexa was working fine, controlling my Philips Hue lights, Wemo switches, Nest thermostat, Logitech Harmony. Everything worked, much to my relief given some of the issues noted in other reviews. My main use is to play music via Amazon Music, which typically is a great experience with Alexa. However, this is where my problems began. I asked Alexa to play my music and it started playing, but then it stopped after one song. I tried again and again, it stopped after one or two songs. After experimenting, I has several issues with playing via Alexa on Amazon Music. Sometimes, it would stop after one, two or three songs, sometimes it would try to play and I hear a little static, and then nothing, sometimes in transition, it cuts the song short and jumps to next song, but always, never plays more than a few songs when Alexa is used to start the music. I initially set it up on wifi, but then switched to ethernet in case it was interference, but that didn't solve it. I saw in the Sonos community forum that removing the device and Sonos skill and adding back resolved it for some, but not everyone and it didn't work for me. This was also a bit confusing given the Amazon Alexa did not allow me to remove the device and I had to use a browser. I also tried a factory reset, but the problem still persisted. I tried resetting my router, but that didn't help either. Next I also tried playing Amazon Music through the Sonos app and it works just fine, it only has problems when it's started by Alexa. I tried streaming from iHeart Radio and Pandora via Alexa and those seem to also work just fine. It's only Amazon Music that won't work correctly with Alexa. Looking on the forums, it seems to be a common problem. Given it's Amazon Music, hard to say if it's a Sonos problem or an Amazon problem. I'm hoping there's a quick software fix, else will need to decide whether to return and go back to the Echo or perhaps an Echo Dot connected to a good speaker.

      Overrated and buggy

      Posted
      MAtt2h

      It's a nice speaker but ultimately I would recommend purchasing an Echo Dot and connecting it to good speakers instead. There are too many bugs to make this overrated, mediocre speaker worthwhile. People rave about its sound quality. I don't see what all the fuss is about. It has good bass but there's also kind of a strange flatness and overclarity to it that's hard to describe. Some things I liked: Sleek design, Bass and Treble Control, Supposed availability of more smart assistants than Alexa at some point in the future Some things I didn't: - Alexa voice control is buggy. If content is playing, more often than not the speaker will not be able to hear you. Amazon's native Echo devices perform much better at this task. - There are little bugs with playback. For example, ask Alexa to play your flash briefing and it starts playing the flash briefing content in the background immediately, even while it's still saying, "Okay, here's your flash briefing." Amazon's Alexa devices do not do this. The Sonos One is also more prone to hearing its own wake word and going into a feedback loop. - Spotify via Alexa on Sonos One is useless. It cannot start in shuffle mode and it cannot shuffle a playlist of more than a couple dozen songs due to the fact that it's using something called Spotify Connect to load a queue of songs in the background. If I say, Alexa shuffle my Starred playlist (my master playlist), it always starts playing the same song - the first song on the list - and even when I do get it to shuffle, it keeps playing the same 50 songs or so. It's enormously frustrating. You can shuffle Spotify music using the Sonos app on your phone, but then what's the point of having a voice-assistant speaker? - No bluetooth. I let myself be convinced that a speaker with Wifi connectivity only would meet all of my needs. It didn't. You can only stream to your speaker from apps that support wifi streaming. - There are several things that Alexa devices can do that Sonos cannot, including "drop in" mode, messaging, and calling. - The visual ring around the Alexa devices just gives those devices a level of personality, interactivity, and fun that the Sonos One, with its (admittedly perfectly pleasant) audible recognition tone does not really have. - They've been promising Google Assistant integration for a long time and it still hasn't come to be. - You cannot take advantage of the TruePlay tuning feature that customizes the speaker to the acoustic properties of your room unless you have an Apple device. They don't mention that in their marketing materials. Android people, go . yourselves. - Sound quality is good but by no means transcendent. Expected more given the hype. I can only conclude that this is an overpriced hipster product.

      No Contest between Amazon's Echo and the Sonos One

      Posted
      SonosOneGuy

      I got an Amazon Echo for Christmas. Not a bad product - but the sound quality was just so so. As I searched the internet for ways to possibly improve the sound quality - I dumbed into the Sonos One - with Alexa (not Sonos play1). I read many reviews and was intrigued. So I decided to purchase the Sonos One (an open box at 159.00). Whata steal! After side by side comparisons - there was no contest. The Sonos One had "knock your socks off" tight bass and mid & upper clarity. The amazon product was returned and credited without a hitch - reason for return - music quality was not as expected. You will see people bashing the Sonos One because it lacks a little of the functionality found on the Echo - Big Deal - I'll take music sound quality any day. I have Amazon Prime - and access to their music - do I really need their unlimited music for extra cost - nope! I can #via voice# control music on Amazon, Iheart, Pandora and Tunein - all at no cost. The Sonos App #available for free on all the platforms# integrates all of your music - in one place. It also allowed my to provide a location on my laptop where I had a moderate library of 2000 songs. So, I have access to more music than I can really handle. My laptop #running WIndows 8.1# sits on our kitchen peninsula and with the Sonos App - complements my voice control. If I select music on my laptop #not yet controllable via voice - but coming soon# - I still have the ability to command Alexa to play Next, Previous, Pause, and Volume. Meanwhile - I can only imagine what 2 Sonos One's paired into Stereo mode could sound like - maybe next Christmas. Additional comments: the lack of Bluetooth has not been an issue. The music runs through our Wi-Fi wireless network #at 2.4# without a hitch and there is also the option to plug an ethernet cable into the Sonos One. The Sonos One setup was a bit involved - but only a one time thing, Advise - read the instructions and view a few Youtube videos before firing from the hip.

      Great sound & complicated

      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      I have a playbase, sub, and 2 ones (with Alexa). I advise setting these up one at a time with the sonos app first and second with the Alexa app, so you can name them for later identification. Ex. Set up a playbase or sound bar first in sonos app, then set it up in the Alexa app. Continuing back and forth between apps until you set them all up. I haven't owned the playbar, but the sound from the playbase alone is enough for surround sound. We played a surround sound test on it and it sounds amazing. It even has enough bass that you probably wouldn't need a sub, unless you prefer a lot of bass. The sub bass is ridiculous. I live in a house and we have it only half way up because it is so strong. Pros: Alexa enabled Amazing sound quality Appealing design Plays music by voice (through Alexa) or the sonos app from amazon, spotify, and a lot more. You can adjust music and surround sound to be softer or louder than other speakers. The glitches can be updated to fix them. Cons: Couldn't get pandora to link Doesn't have all Alexa functioning All speakers decrease volume when talking to any Amazon's Alexa devices that are linked in your Alexa app. Setup is a little frustrating. If not setup properly, speakers will intermittently cut out. Have to buy special mounts for rear speakers (expensive). The speakers themselves are quite expensive. The playbase doesn't look right under a larger tv. (I set mine under my entertainment center). Can't setup more than 4 speakers (base/bar, sub, and 2 rear speakers) The app could be better with the layout.

      At home, I own the sonos playbar, subwoofer, 2 play5's second gen, 2 play3's , and 4 play1's, a boost, and a connect for my stereo. And I use the Alexa dot to run my sonos play1 at work. So yes, I am a card carrying sonos fanboy. I really, really wanted to throw away my alexa dot and embrace the Sonos one with Alexa. Instead, I returned the Sonos one. Why? Well the sound quality was fine, at least as good as my play 1's. Don't know if better, that would have required more testing. I just could never get Alexa to work. She could tell me the weather but not control my speakers. Um, hello? I don't know if she was confused because i already had an account or what. Alexa on the sonos one just refused to play nice. I'm a sonos veteran, sometimes it does get tricky and you have to google. But when I got to the point where I saw a lot of people having trouble and recommending I power down my whole network and reinitialize everything, and toggle things back and forth while rubbing my tummy... I said nope. This s**t aint ready yet. Back it went. Sure, no doubt sometime in 2018 sonos will release a software patch, that is the beauty of sonos, but darn, when I buy something new, I want it to at least work a little. Is that asking too much? I struggled with giving it 3 stars because it is good sound.. but eh, why reward a company for rushing a product? Instead I bought another play 1. There that showed them! LOL. No doubt there is a sonos with alexa in my future, just not this christmas.

      Great Device - Needs Improvement

      Posted
      Zatz
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      The device finally gives Alexa the speaker that it needs. Yes, you can use an Echo with an aux cable or Bluetooth, but having Alexa integrated into a single, quality sounding device is fantastic. There are a couple of immediate detractions that prevent a five star rating, especially at this price point: - The microphone seems to be nowhere NEAR the sensitivity of the Echo microphone. I feel like I have to practically shout at it to activate Alexa. It's been going something like this: alexa....ALEXA...ALEXA!!! This is in a 12 x 14 bedroom, with no music playing from the device. I'm just short of calling the microphone garbage. This is particularly frustrating in a bedroom when your spouse may be sleeping. Not sure if firmware can improve this or it's a hardware thing. - The wake sound is horrible, loud, and you cannot change it. It sort of sounds like an error sound on an old PC to me. Hopefully, picking a different sound or turning it off completely will happen in the future. - This device doesn't integrate into Amazon's new Multi-Room Music feature. Considering that Sonos' specialty is multi-room music, I'm not sure if they will be motivated to integrate it all all. - This one doesn't bother me, but, be aware that the wake word cannot be changed like it can on other Alexa devices. Also, if there is another Alexa device in earshot, that one may activate instead due to the lack of mic sensitivity. - From what I have read - this speaker cannot become part of a stereo pair like other Sonos devices. While the issues here don't encourage me to purchase another one at this time, they do only slightly detract from the enjoyment of having Alexa in a great sounding device. Just be aware that is almost, but not quite there yet.
