[Costco] Sonos One SL Wi-Fi Speaker, Shadow Edition, 2-pack $299.99

Not sure what the in-store price is maybe $10-20 cheaper. Pretty good price. Bought one from Amazon around Christmas with the $30 credit screwup bringing it to effectively $140 vs this at $150 and no haggling with Amazon for the $30 credit back.

This is the version WITHOUT Alexa, which I prefer.

The compact design fits just about any space. Put it on your kitchen countertop or tuck it away on your office bookshelf.

Features:
Wi-Fi
Apple AirPlay 2
Sonos app
Multi-room listening
Play different songs in different rooms or same song everywhere
Humidity resistant
Automatic software updates
Pair with another One SL in the same room for stereo separation
Pair as rear home theater surrounds with Playbar, Playbase, or Beam

Includes:
2 Sonos One SL speakers
Power cord
Ethernet cable
Quickstart guide

Technical Specifications:
2 class-D digital amplifiers
1 tweeter
1 mid-woofer

FYI shadow edition just means a slightly different paint colour. They came out with it to prevent price matching.

The specs don't really matter. It's a fine sounding speaker for the size and price, with balanced sound and tight bass instead of boomy. Decent power for small to medium size rooms, esp. with a stereo pair.

It does WiFi streaming only. There's no Bluetooth, no analog input, no Google Cast - although there is Airplay 2 support. That makes it a bit inflexible and totally dependent on Sonos support, so it was quite an issue when Sonos recently dropped support for some of their older products. People kind of expect speakers to be useful for a long time, not to become obsolete because the company stopped supporting them.

Sonos does have fairly broad support for online streaming services, but not universal. You can also use them as the destination media player for Google Home and Amazon Echo voice assistant speakers.

Bluetooth would have been a nice backup function for a longer lifespan same with an AUX input. Bought it for the Airplay2. Find the sound good and can play any music/audio (haven't found one that doesn't work) via AirPlay2 from my iPhone.

The older ones still play airplay 2 if they're part of a larger network of speakers that do support it. I have 2x Play:5's that support airplay 2 and an older play:1 that doesn't support it and it'll still play music that is pushed using airplay 2 as my play:5 s are part of the network.

Lot's of coverage in this thread...
http://forums.redflagdeals.com/amazon-c ... 9-2365707/

@Diakonos did a good breakdown
This is a really wonderful thread, with information scattered throughout. For anyone looking for a summary, here's what I've understood:

DIFERENCES BETWEEN SPEAKERS
I. Sonos Play:1 (released 2013) is the older speaker with no microphone built-in for assistant support. Some concern about future support, but the sound quality is similar (if not identical) to later speakers. No Airplay support.
II. Sonos One is the newer generation speaker (2017), with built-in mic and native support for Alexa and Google Home (the latter more recently). It also has Airplay 2 support. The One comes in two generations, but the improvement of the second apparently has only to do with memory and processor.
III. Sonos One SL (2019) has the same form factor and and sound quality as the Sonos One second generation, with the difference being that it has no mic. In that sense, it's like the upgraded version of the older Sonos Play:1. Despite a later release date, it's cheaper than the Sonos One because it has no mic.

All three speakers apparently have the same sound quality. Sonos One and One SL can be paired in stereo with each other (and with themselves, of course). Neither pairs in stereo with the Sonos Play:1.

The IKEA Symfonisk, made by Sonos, is another option. Some have said that the sound equipment is comparable to these three units; RFD user bluetroll below suggests the sound is not quite as good as the One and One SL, and points out that unlike them Symfonisk is not humidity-resistant (e.g., for the bathroom), nor does it have a mic. It is on sale for $120 until April 8. Thanks, @bluetroll.


WHERE TO BUY THEM
- Costco has a set of 2 One SL speakers on for $300 on their website and also in-store, apparently for the same price.
- Sonos One and One SL are available for $180 and $160 respectively on the various retailers listed in the thread above thanks to the manufacturer sale. You may or may not be able to get a coupon to work with Staples; various retailers may have cash back options.
- If you live in Quebec, tanguay.ca currently has a promotion with the same prices as above, but the tax is paid. AFAIK this is the best deal if you're in QC. Shipping dates a bit delayed, from my experience.

Hope this helps someone. If I've made an error, please let me know and I'll update.

The Ikea versions are apparently easier to hack. There are plans on the internet for how to add an analog subwoofer to the Ikea bookshelf speaker.

The weird thing is that the Sonos One gen2 and the Sonos One SL actually do have Bluetooth built in - but Sonos uses it only as an alternate means of accessing settings!

Good to know! Hopefully by the time Airplay2 no longer serves its purpose there will be a well documented hack.

The One SL are on sale at Sonos.com. If you use drop for 6% back in gift cards, it’s effectively less than the cost of buying from Costco, and you can buy just 1, instead of in pairs, and in the colour you want.

Good to know, thanks! Color choice is nice as well.

Does anyone know what the in-store price at Costco is for the pair?

Why is the description acting like it's more compact than its predecessor? I googled it and it's the exact same size as the Play:1 and the Sonos One.

Also, I have both of those and will buy 2 SL. Thanks OP!

They cannot. They can only be added to be used for surround. There is no way to connect these speakers to a tv unfortunately. You would need either beam/playbar/playbase and then you would be able to add these speakers.

A smart speaker without voice control? The horror … or … rejoice! There are those that love Alexa, and have Amazon’s voice assistant, Siri or the Google Assistant control their home’s music, lights and much more. However, there are people for whom the very idea of a voice assistant on the latest and greatest Sonos speaker is a deal-breaker.

Cue the Sonos One SL, a Sonos One (Gen 2) without an always-on microphone, and so without Alexa, or any other voice-activated helper. In effect, it’s a direct replacement for the Sonos Play:1

If you think that makes the Sonos One SL a retro device, understand that there are three big reasons why the Sonos One SL exists and will do well. The first is privacy. If we’d been told a decade ago that by now we would all be actively purchasing gadgets with always-on, networked microphones to sprinkle around our homes, no-one would have believed it. For those who don’t want voice assistants anywhere near them, the Sonos One SL is a welcome product. 

(If you need to take your music on the go, check out Sonos' portable speakers, including the Sonos Move and the Sonos Roam.)

The second reason is for a people who think voice assistants are dumb and unnecessary. They’re not troubled by light switches and are happy using apps to check the weather and, yes, to ‘manually’ send tunes to a wireless speaker. 

The third reason is, of course, replication. If you’ve already got plenty of voice-activated speakers and suchlike, the arrival of yet another is needlessly confusing. That goes double if you already have a Sonos One in your home.

[Update: The Sonos One SL has been given an eco-friendly update. The upgraded model comes with a a redesigned base that eschews unnecessary plastics, and comes in packaging that Sonos says is kinder to the planet. 

There have been no changes to the features or functionality of the Sonos One SL, though the new model will only work with the S2 Sonos app.]

Price and availability

As a bonus, the Sonos One SL ($199/ £179/ AU$289) also represents a small saving on the voice assistant endowed Sonos One (Gen.2) ($219 / £199 / AU$319) - both speakers have been subject to recent price increases, however.

Still, that leaves the Sonos One SL looking like a thoroughly sensible, if slightly unexpected, product that ought to do very well since it should appeal to a wide cross-section of people. 

However, it’s not what the Sonos One SL lacks that makes it a must-have product, but what it possesses inside its sleek, thoroughly modern chassis.

Design

With the same monochromatic color finish as One, One SL is also a clear stylistic step-up from the Play:1. The top of the unit, which is available in either black or white, has a fingerprint-proof soft matte finish that holds some capacitive touch controls. This is where there’s a big difference between the One and the One SL. Since voice control has been dumped there are no microphones or a dedicated microphone ‘button’, just the play/pause, volume up and volume down ‘buttons’, which also work as skip track controls if you swipe across the entire area. There’s also a small LED status light to show when the One SL is connected to the network.

A matte white or black grille of tiny oval holes sits over the speakers, which wraps around almost through 360°, though leaving a small gap at the back for a pairing button and an Ethernet port. As with the One, the power cable attaches to the bottom of the unit, which is a neat idea in every sense.

There’s a subtle, light grey Sonos logo on the front. It’s small, it’s hidden and it’s virtually impossible to see. That’s exactly the way we like our logos.

Setup

Like the One, the One SL has no Bluetooth connectivity. That’s not strictly true. Like the One it does have Bluetooth Low Energy, but only for set-up. That initial setup is painless, though there’s also a choice to be made between attaching the One SL to your home network via that wired Ethernet port or via Wi-Fi. The concept of a network-only smart speaker isn’t without a potential drawback; what if the home network goes down? That would leave the Sonos One SL utterly without function.

Unless a network armageddon ensues, the next steps – though only if you’re using an iPhone and download the Sonos app – is to go through a simple process to get the One SL on your home network, choose where you want to place the One SL, and engage Trueplay, Sonos’ tuning software. The latter is a cinch to use. Prompted by the Sonos app, the wizard begins when the One SL emits various weird-sounding pulses. They’re received by the microphone on your smartphone, and the app calculates how sound waves echo off furniture, walls etc. and calibrates an acoustic profile for a One SL in a specific room. The tiny drawback is that you have to gradually walk around the room moving your iPhone up and down. The One SL then tunes itself. It all works well and it only takes a few minutes.

However, it’s one of the lesser-known features of Sonos speakers that perfectly justifies the existence of the One SL; stereo pairing. As with a lot of wireless speakers, the One SL can be daisy-chained to the One, with each acting as either left or right channel in a stereo soundstage. It’s simple, it’s brilliant, and if that’s what you intend to do with the Sonos One SL then you’ll understand why there’s no reason for it to have Alexa built-in. The One and One SL can also be hooked-up to a Playbar, Playbase or Beam and act as rear speakers in a home cinema set-up. 

Sound quality

Although it has Bluetooth Low Energy, the One SL does not support Bluetooth streaming. Do we miss it? No, no we do not. The One SL is all about Apple Airplay 2, which means you can stream anything – music physically on your phone, Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music, Deezer, Netflix (and 100 streaming services in total) – from an iPhone.

The sound and acoustic properties of One and One SL are identical. Inside are two Class-D digital amplifiers, one mid-woofer and one tweeter, and together they create a likeable soundstage that is best described as both warm and precise. There’s bass, but not too much, and there’s enough power for high volume, high octane music, but always without distortion. It also treats spoken word very well; the One SL is a great all-rounder.

Although we don’t doubt the value of Trueplay, it’s not making any drastic changes to the sound quality of the One SL. We know that because we went through the tuning process in one room, then unplugged the One SL and used it somewhere else. Was there a drop-off in performance? Perhaps very slightly, but in practice, it didn’t make much difference.

Final verdict

The popularity of Amazon Alexa is allowing brands like Sonos to flourish, but there’s a privacy schism at the heart of the smart speaker market that the Sonos One SL is intent on addressing. 

Although it assuages those that hate voice control, this microphone-less smart speaker can actually receive music from an iPhone that itself is being controlled via Siri. It’s really about avoiding replication. Able to be stereo-paired with a One and also used as home cinema rears if you’ve got a Sonos Playbar, Playbase or Beam, the One SL avoids you having to pay for features you just don’t need. 

However, we do have one question that no-one seems to be able to answer; what does the SL stand for?
