Sonos has discounted many of its refurbished speakers to some of the best prices we’ve seen. A renovated Arc will cost you about $540, which is a whopping $360 cheaper than a brand new model. The Sonos Five, one of our favorite music-focused speakers, normally costs $549, but a refurbished model retails for just over $373, so you can save about $175. And if you’re looking for your first Sonos speaker, we recommend the Sonos One SLwhich you can pick up refurbished for just $119.
You may be hesitant to buy a refurbished gadget, which is why it is important to review the terms of a company’s refurbished program before doing so. Sonos includes all necessary accessories, manuals, and replacement parts with the refurbished units, and they also come with the same one-year warranty as new items. Considering how expensive it can be to build your dream home entertainment system (whether with all Sonos devices or not), going the refurbished route is a good option if you’re on a budget.
The Sonos Arc soundbar is one of our favorites and we gave it a score of 85 when it first came out. We love the modern design, excellent sound quality, support for Dolby Atmos and directional audio, plus the ability to recalibrate to your living room when you add additional speakers to the mix. The Sonos Five, on the other hand, is really for music lovers and those who want the best possible audio quality. We also appreciate the easy setup process and how easy it is to add to existing Sonos systems.
Alternatively, the Sonos One SL is a good option for those who don’t already have a sound system. It’s the microphone-free version of the Sonos One, which means it’s also good for those who don’t mind having a virtual assistant speaker in the house. It has a compact yet attractive design, great sound quality, WiFi and AirPlay 2 support, and stereo audio capabilities when you pair the two together. Plus, it’s one of the cheaper options you can get from Sonos – a brand new one costs $199, which isn’t bad, but grabbing a refurbished model for $119 is even better.
