Sonos One

Before 2017, it has always been cheaper to get a Sonos PLAY:1 or Sonos One from Amazon, ship it to Singapore, and it is still cheaper than getting it in Singapore. That is how I got my Sonos PLAY:1.

Things have changed after that, and the prices for Sonos products in Singapore is almost the same as Amazon (sometimes even cheaper). And it comes with a warranty.
