    I have a stereo pair of HomePods in my living room. When asking Siri a question it only plays out of 1 HomePod. It's the same one. Even if I'm closer to the other. Is this normal?

    Yes, in a stereo pair only one HomePod functions as Siri.

    You can touch the other one to move between the two.

    I agree it's odd, but normal.

    Siri is already slow enough, having to add an audio buffer to sync her reply over 2 speakers would make her even slower.

    Thank you. You'd think they could make it so it plays the one that you are closest to.

    That would be a nice option, for her to reply from whichever HomePod heard the request more loudly/clearly.
