Default Sonos - anyone have it?

Thinking about snagging something in the next couple weeks. Just saw where Best Buy is going to have Sonos Sound Bar and Sub on sale. Is it worth the coin??

We have a Sonos system throughout the house with various channels. Love it, no issues.

100% worth it.

I have soundbar and sub, and 5 play:1 scattered around house. Sound quality is excellent and makes networked music around your house super easy. I’ve had it for a couple years and couldn’t imagine going back to a traditional system.

It is expensive to be sure, but it got easier forking out the coin after I owned a single play:1 for a while.

Yup, love it. I have a speaker in most rooms in my house and the play area and sub in my living room. I had heart ache about the coin when I first bought them but it’s been well worth it.

We have Sonos speakers in 4 rooms including outdoors. Love it. Running them on the app is seamless. Highly recommend them.

Had them since they came out.
still working fine and have been very happy with the system .
if you believe you’ll honestly get the use out of them for the cost, you won’t be disappointed in them.
We have 4 speakers.

I got a Sonos one to have a better quality speaker with Alexa but it doesn't support a lot the Alexa functions. They did just add google Assistant to it not too long ago, but I feel that is buggy.

Otherwise i love sound but just thought I would add that in case that is of importance to you.

that and no Bluetooth support are kind of frustrating to me.
