    Looks like there should hopefully be some good offers on the 'current' play one. Im addicted to these things now and could do with another 2 for the hallway/landing!

    Am I right in thinking that the Sonos 1 cannot be paired with the Play 1 as a stereo pair, but that they will still show up on the same Sonos network for multi-room sound etc?

    And you need a internet connection to set one up! What the hell. Don't have one.

    It's at the connecting speaker and email and password section

    Smells like price fixing. Is that even legal?

    Apparently not according to the article.

    Someone on reddit said the company in question used to only drop them below MSRP by a few bucks to get to the top of the price comparison tools.

    Crazy that Sonos wouldn’t speak to the company first.

    They sent a survey out a few months back asking some things, then this has been floating around, but would only be a cheaper sub and atmos rears, nothing on a new playbar.

    Sadly the only thin I really want from SONOS seems to be on some list of really basic features they will never include a bit like apple and the calculator on the ipad! all I want is to be able to permanently group speakers I have two play 1's in my kitchen diner and want them to act as a single speaker for volume and stop start etc like a stereo pair but no one left and one right, is it really too much to ask?

    A normal group works like that.

    Very interesting although it raises more questions than answers

    * Why only Atmos rears?
    * How do the rears receive the Atmos signal? The playbar doesn't even have an HDMI port
    * The Beam has a HDMI port for the TV only, it doesn't take other inputs - TV's don't generally pass-through Atmos

    Bascially if Sonos does make rear's with upfiring speakers - it's "Atmos" must actually just be some fake DSP, because I cannot see how the system is going to receive and process an actual Atmos signal without a brand new yet to be announced soundbar.

    I've just bought a new Playbar so sod's law says they'll announce an Atmos system tomorrow!

    Finally added a pair of Sonos one to my PlayBar and sub setup and loving it. Put it off for ages after reading it won’t do 5.1 without hassle etc... it’s all hooked up to my Nvidia Shield and Plex.. 4K movies playing great with 5.1 surround sound confirmed on the Sonos App :)

    Sounds great so would recommend :)

    Unfortunately not. It’s a limitation of the SkyQ box.
