Want to learn more about the One? Read our expert review of the Sonos One here.
Listen to your favorite music wirelessly with the Sonos One Gen2. Connect the speaker to the power grid and use WiFi to connect the speaker to your smartphone or tablet. Connect multiple Sonos speakers to each other via the WiFi connection, distribute them around your house, and operate them with the integrated voice assistant or the Sonos app, allowing you to listen to the same or a different song in every room. You can also use the Google Assistant to ask about the weather, your own calendar, or current traffic jams. The app gives you access to your saved music, internet radio, or playlists from streaming services. Do you prefer to leave your smartphone in your pocket? You can use touch controls, allowing you to pause the music, skip a song, or adjust the volume.
Note: Sonos products use a 2.4GHz WiFi network. With a 5GHz network, Sonos can only be used in a surround setup. Make sure your WiFi is installed on the right network before getting started with your speaker(s).

I like the design
Netwerkopties zijn onbestaand, als je min of meer professionele switches met meerdere vlans gebruikt is het een heel gedoe om die dingen te configureren. Voor een heel simpel netwerk makkelijk, maar voor meer ervaren gebruikers was manuele netwerkconfiguratie handig geweest.
The Sonos one has great design, good sound and the google assistant voice control to me is the best feature: no need to browse for music, just say 'hey google, play cool jazz' and it plays cool jazz from your streaming music subscription (note that voice commands do not work for free Spotify). Other favourites are asking for the news, the weather and anything that you would otherwise look up on for instance wikipedia.
While connecting the Sonos speaker to the Wifi was easy, the google assistant installation was not so smooth and took some trials and patience - e.g. I use a google phone with build-in google assistant but it required me to also install the google assistant app on the phone to link it to the Sonos.
Once installed it works great though there are some limitations - for instance voice control does not work for playing Audible audiobooks, you can play them but only by using the the Sonos app.
Werkt zoals verwacht. Enige nadeel is dat het (nog) niet werkt met Apple music (via Google assistent) of rechtstreeks met Siri. Nu kan je wel via de AirPlay 2 functie je muziek streamen naar de box maar spraakbesturing van de One zou makkelijker zijn. Misschien in de toekomst....
Good sound/size ratio
I like Sonos-one because it has a fantastic sound quality, just check bass&treble settings in their app you will understand how solid they are even in strong basses. There will not be any information about status lights on the box, so check this: https://support.sonos.com/s/article/226?language=en_US
Also, keep in mind that changing country from sonos settings to u.s.a. is needed to use Amazon Alexa.
Sound good, perfect design
