Sonos Sub review

 

This versatile and slim subwoofer is designed for use with Sonos amplified systems

Versatile placement ; wireless ; simple set-up, neat EQ features ; integrates well ; solid

A little expensive ; not the very punchiest, in absolute terms

Paired with a Sonos Play speaker this Sub sounds great and makes plenty of sense

The Sonos Sub is a superb upgrade but who's really going to shell out £600 for it?

Sonos Sub review

 

If you've bought any of the standalone Sonos speakers over the years like the Play 3 or the Play 5 , you'll know there's something missing from the sound they produce, and that's a thumping great big bass. Enter the Sonos Sub, an evil-looking wireless...

Thumping bass sounds great; Good build quality; Looks good; Easy set up.

Very high price.

A fantastic-sounding sub for people already with Sonos gear that are looking for better overall sound. You will need plenty of disposable cash to make it worth your while, but if you fancy treating yourself this month your ears will thank you.

Sonos Sub – review

 

Charles Arthur: The new subwoofer from the wireless audio company might change the way you listen to your music. Providing you get it home unscathed, that is

The Sonos SUB works with all Sonos amplified components: CONNECT:AMP/ZonePlayer 120/ZonePlayer 100; PLAY:5; PLAY:3. It does not work with the non-amplified Sonos CONNECT/ZP90/ZP80.

REVIEW: Sonos SUB wireless subwoofer

 

Sonos have expanded their wireless audio range to include the striking new SUB subwoofer. It looks and sounds the business, but is the sonic boost worth the high asking price? Read on to find out.

There's no denying that the Sonos SUB is a great bit of kit. It looks amazing, is a piece of cake to set up and gives a marked improvement to the audio quality of an existing Sonos system. However, £599 is also undeniably expensive for a subwoofer that...

It may not be cheap, but the Sub is a worthwhile addition to the already excellent Sonos music system.

Sonos Sub review

 

It's a lot to pay for a subwoofer that can't be used with non-Sonos hardware. If you can swing the cost, though, you'll get a tremendous boost to sound quality that integrates smoothly with a full Sonos network.

Deep, tight bassEasy setupUnique design

Very expensiveCan't be used with non-Sonos gearDust magnet

From our experience, the Sub is one of the better subwoofers in the field, wireless or otherwise. It adds forcefulness without turning the sound into mush. Making it worth the cash outlay is the challenge, even if it's much less of a problem than we...
