Alexa Voice Control
Amazon’s Alexa is a little like Siri on Apple – a smart, virtual, voice-controlled assistant. At release, Australian Sonos One users won’t be able to use the feature however as it is not currently supported here, but it will be enabled in early 2018 via a software update.
Similarly, Google Assistant is slated to be added some time in 2018.
Voice control works via 6 built-in mics, and Sonos claims that via its echo cancellation circuitry it works even when the music is turned up to 11!
Sonos One Vs Play:1
In terms of sound quality the Sonos One and Play:1 are virtually identical – both have twin class-D digital amplifiers and a 2-way driver arrangement. They weigh the same too.
Appearances are slightly different with the Sonos One having capacitative (touch) controls vs physical buttons on top. The grille on the Sonos One is now a matte black or white vs a metallic grey grille.
Features are the same, other than the voice control and so is the price…
Sonos One Price
The Sonos One is $299 – the same as the Play:1, so if you’re in the market for a compact wireless audio system, this could be the One for you!
