Listening to music
I bought two Sound 1 speakers after experiencing the Sonos Soundbar, and deciding to create a surround system with Sonos. I did not know at the time how good these small speakers are. <br /><br />They are exceptional as surround speakers, and even better, they are remarkable as stereo speakers. The sound quality exceeds the Bose AM-5 system I've had for years. Rich, full, good imaging, and enough bass to fill a small room (we added the sub, which rocks as well).<br /><br />The ONLY issue with Sonos is that the very versatility that is a good feature also becomes a negative, as you try to figure out exactly what you do and don't need. The earlier reviews all say you need a bridge, but the more recent point out the newer firmware does not need one.<br /><br />Also: When I first set up the Sound 1, I added them as additional speakers, not surround. It took a little while to figure out how to resolve my mistake, but once I finally did, they began performing flawlessly, and the entire system works perfectly for our living area (15x25).
