SONOS ONE (GEN 2) SMART SPEAKER WITH BUILT-IN ALEXA VOICE CONTROL-$169.00
The Sonos One (Gen 2) Smart Speaker with built-in Amazon Alexa voice control returns with the same intuitive interface and room-filling sound, albeit with new and improved internal features. Unlike its predecessor, the Gen 2 not only supports Wi-Fi connectivity for expanded range, but also Bluetooth Low-Energy for easier setup and hyper-local communication. In addition, the new quad-core processor and increased memory are set to enable seamless feature upgrades. Like the original version, the second-generation Sonos One lets you manage music, podcasts, news, audiobooks, and vinyl records at your fingertips and through voice commands. While these smart speakers are the smallest in the brand’s lineup, they pack enough oomph to fill a room with crisp surround sound. The seamless Alexa integration lets you make a handful of useful commands, like enabling multi-room listening, turning the volume up or down in a specific room, and pulling up a playlist from your favorite audio streaming service. Get the white and black Sonos One (Gen 2) and pair them to prompt the 6-microphone array so that Alexa can understand you better. Both the black and white speakers feature a smooth matte finish, sleek backlit touchpad, and sturdy build fit for any room in your home.
