The Sonos One is equipped with Amazon Alexa built-in, providing you with flexible hands-free voice control. Amazon Alexa is an intuitive control service that can be used to control your favourite music streaming services, allowing you to pause, resume, skip or change the volume of your music. Amazon Alexa can also be used to control smart devices around your home.
The built-in six-microphone array with smart voice capture and noise cancellation ensures that Alexa can always hear your voice commands from anywhere in the room, regardless of how loud your music is playing. Designed with extra security in mind, the microphone array within the Sonos One can be turned on or off by simply touching the top panel. An illuminated LED indicator allows you to easily see whether the microphone is active or turned off.
Exceptional Hi-Fi Sound
The Sonos One speaker is designed to produce rich and powerful, high-fidelity sound that remains crystal-clear at any volume. Identical to the Play:1, the Sonos One features two class-D digital amplifiers which are accurately tuned to complement both of the drivers and the unique acoustic architecture. Delivering faithful reproduction that is perfect for a vast range of music genres, the Sonos One has a single tweeter which creates crisp high frequencies and a 3.5'' mid-woofer that produces deep and rich lows.
The versatile Sonos One can be used as a stereo pair - turn two One speakers into separate left and right channel speakers to create wider, bigger and deeper sound. Alternatively, add combine Sonos One speakers with a Playbar and Sub for a true 5.1 surround sound experience.
Wireless App Control
You can control all your music and rooms with an Android™ device, iPhone®, iPod Touch® or iPad™. A free app lets you control the One speaker from the palm of your hand. If you have multiple music players you can control what music is playing in every room, from anywhere in your house. Sonos Controllers aren't tied to a specific player so you can use any controller to control the music and volume in all your rooms. The software is included to use any Mac or PC as a controller too.
The Sonos One is simple and easy to use. Simply put it in any room and connect it to your home WiFi network using the free Sonos Controller App. The easy System Setup software provides on-screen prompts on any control. You can then expand your system room by room by adding more speakers.
The Sonos One is compact and easily movable. Simply pick it up and plug it in! Once registered, the system will also automatically notify you of updates and new features and can be easily updated with the press of one button.
''The One looks exceptionally similar to the Play:1. For size and shape it’s practically identical, with the only significant aesthetic departure being the replacement of the Play:1’s grey wraparound grille with one that’s black or white, depending on the speaker colour you’ve gone for. Overall, the One is a speaker that blends into its surroundings even more effectively than its predecessor.''
''Having Alexa switched on definitely has its advantages, particularly because - as promised - she’s more deeply integrated here than with rivals. The clearest example of this is that you can talk to the One exactly as you would Amazon’s own Echo, so instead of having to say “Alexa, play Bowie on Sonos”, you simply say “Alexa, play Bowie”, and one of David’s classics will spring forth from your One.''

''The Sonos One performs admirably. If you have a Sonos Play:1 at home, then you can expect the same incredible depth, volume and nuance from the Sonos One – it uses the exact same audio hardware and software.''
''The Sonos One can control any Sonos speaker in the house regardless of whether said other speakers are indeed One models. This means that you can tell the Sonos system to play a song in the living room, where perhaps a Sonos Playbar is placed, from your Sonos One in the kitchen. And, of course, the Sonos One supports all the same functions as an Amazon Echo through Alexa, like telling the time or delivering you the latest news.''
