Sonos recently began its Black Friday sale, with new discounts on its speakers, sound bars, and more. These sales take up to $200 off Sonos' products, and also include a few combo sets if you're looking to set up a home audio entertainment area.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with Sonos. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

The new Sonos sale will run all week and end on Monday, November 30. Some speakers do have delayed shipping estimates due to demand, so products like the Sonos Move in black won't ship out until November 27, but most other devices are available to ship today.

Solo Products

  • Move - $299, down from $399
  • Beam - $299, down from $399
  • Sub - $599, down from $699

I agree. I don't want features that I don't care for and may have unexpected consequences. Also, expect your Sonos gear to be obsolete in 5-10 years.
If you don't want to use the features, don't enable them. If you don't enable them, what unexpected consequences would you run into? Also, if you think the first gen Homepod will still be supported in 10 years, well, let's just say prepare to be dissapointed.

Love my Sonos gear! You think Apple will still be supporting current generation hompods in 10 years?
Well we know what Sonos thinks of their 4yr equipment lol - they purposely brick them and ONLY revert when tones of press and user backlash happens.

Apple has supported their computers - 6yrs (7 yrs vintage no repairs), and phones/tablets (5yrs). Some people with the original Apple Speaker have had repairs longer than 10yrs, at least in the USA.

I have them all over for whole home audio (8 zones 12 speakers + port), and they work really good, They will work with Siri as long as you use your iphone, or any Siri enable apple device, and at the time when I bought them they worked with every music service, which apple did not. The other thing I like about it is the Port, which is an input and output device you add to your stereo, so any source including my turntable can be streamed.

Original Apple speaker? Are you talking about beats? Because the homepod is only 3 years old.

They didn't brick anything, they were going to drop support for older devices (no updates), but they would continue to keep working.

That was only if customers activated recycle mode to trade them in for a discount on newer Sonos products. Sonos just this year moved some of their products, which date back to 2006 to legacy support status, but they still work with the older app. I'll ask again, do you really expect the current generation Homepod to still be receiving software updates in 10 years?

The Move is a fantastic product. Acts as an Airplay 2 target with similar sound profile as the HomePod, plus it can be moved around as needed and used as a bluetooth speaker when out. I also have a play 5 and two play 1s along with other HomePODs at various places.

All of the devices work well together via Airplay 2. Love Sonos.

Features can be enabled after an update, a internet-enabled microphone can be hacked into.

Sonos is not supposed to be an alternative for a homepod but a serious audio system and has a price tag to go with it.

No Bluetooth

No reason in this day and age for no Bluetooth.

I ordered one for my office and oh SO wanted to enjoy it, and couldn't use it.

Umm, ok. And if someone wants to go through all of the trouble to hack into my mic through the internet so they can listen to me yell at my dog for puking on the bed, I guess whatever. Apparently I am not paranoid enough?

I know what Sonos is supposed to be, I have them all over my house, and they are exactly what they are supposed to be. Thanks for the info. Your reply on the other hand doesn't make sense. What exactly is the homepod supposed to be, seems to me it was intended to be a serious audio system and has a price tag to go with it. The homepod was essentially Apples answer to Sonos.

IIRC, the devices they recently deemed legacy had been launched 10+ years prior.
  • Bridge
  • Connect (Launched 2008)
  • Connect:Amp (Launched 2008)
  • CR200 (Launched 2009)
  • Play:5 Gen1 (Launched 2009)
  • ZP80, 90, 100, 120 (Launched 2006, 2008, 2005, 2008)
I didn't throw a fit when Apple announced my 2012 Mac Mini wasn't going to get Big Sur.

From my understanding, Sonos wasn't bricking their speakers for no reason.

Legacy Sonos equipment owners were willingly taking the company up on an upgrade offer of 30 percent off new equipment. In exchange for the upgrade discount, Sonos users were to instructed to activate a "Recycle Mode" on the old equipment they'd be upgrading from. The old equipment was then to be sent to Sonos for recycling, or dropped off at a recycling center of the owners choosing.

The "bricking" was to prevent people from getting the 30 percent discount and also keeping or reselling the old equipment, and to actually recycle it as was intended by the upgrade program. How else would Sonos be able to prevent people from taking advantage?

If you don't want your old equipment "bricked" then don't take the upgrade offer. Or sell the old equipment on your own and use the proceeds to buy something new.
