After setting it up, I am wondering whether my Sonos 5.1 is working correctly.
Bought the Sonos One SL on Amazon during their Amazon Prime Day sale for S$259. The original retail price is S$299, but during Amazon Prime Day, only the Sonos One SL (Black) dropped to S$279. You can get an additional S$20 off using the promo code PRIMEDAYAPP with a minimum spend of S$60. And that is how I ended up with S$259.
The packaging on Sonos One SL felt cheap as compared to Sonos One.
After getting my Sonos Beam last month, the next logical thing to get is the Sonos Sub.
Sonos Sub is in its third generation now. It was refreshed back in May 2020.
Bought the Sonos Beam during Shopee 5/5 sale. The usual price is S$699, but during the sale, it was discounted to S$539. On top of that, I have a S$30 bank voucher from Shopee. So I ended up paying just S$509 for the Sonos Beam. Delivery is free within Singapore. It is a super good deal.
My current soundbar is the Samsung 320W 2.1 Ch Soundbar (J551) that comes free with my Samsung Series 5 55″ SUHD Smart LED TV (UA55JS7200).
If you are using Sonos One or Sonos Beam in Singapore, you will be happy to know that as of two days ago (6th November 2019), Google Assistant is available for all Sonos users in Singapore.
Previously, if you want to use Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, you will need to go to your Sonos profile and change your country to the United States, as mentioned in my Sonos One blog post.
Sonos Amp is now available in Singapore at a recommended retail price of S$1,099.
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.
The Sonos BOOST is retailing for S$199 in Singapore.
It is retailing for US$99 (S$141) on Amazon and doesn’t ship to Singapore directly. Since the price difference before freight forwarding is only about S$60, it is not really worth getting it over at Amazon.
It does not ship to Singapore directly, so you have to ship it through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.
The new SONOS PLAY:5 delivers a listening experience that is closer than ever to how every track was mastered in the studio. Built with six synchronized, custom-designed drivers, the speaker’s three mid-woofers create smooth mids and deep, powerful lows that go as low as 27Hz, and three tweeters deliver crystal clear highs at any volume. The drivers are strategically placed to create a soundstage that is much wider than expected in a single speaker, creating room-filling sound with precise separation of vocals and instruments.
