Amazon Prime Day can become ground zero for mediocre tech gear… but in between the crud you can find some true gems like the 2nd-gen Sonos One smart speakerRemove non-product link and Sonos Beam soundbarRemove non-product link. Both carry that awesome Sonos pedigree, and both received our Editors’ Choice award.
Well, to be perfectly accurate, we reviewed the first-gen Sonos One, and not the model on sale. However, there are no material changes to the second-gen model that’s now $179 (a 28 percent discount) and includes a $50 Amazon gift card. For this second-gen model, Sonos simply increased internal memory, improved the processor, and added Bluetooth Low Energy.
The Sonos One is an entry-level Sonos speaker that boasts Alexa voice-control support. It sounds great despite its low price, and you can use it to control your entire multi-room Sonos system—from this speaker directly or from any Amazon Echo.

Next up is the Sonos Beam soundbar and two $50 Amazon gift cards for $359. That’s $136 less than what the entire bundle would otherwise cost. As we wrote in our 4-star review, “The Sonos Beam is easy to recommend, especially if you’re already invested in the Sonos ecosystem. It delivers plenty of bang for the buck: huge bass response, Alexa support, room equalization via Sonos Trueplay, Apple AirPlay 2 support, and more. It puts out enough volume to satisfy most people—more than you might think possible, given its size.”
