This weekend I stopped by a friend’s house. He was playing music over his Sonos system. It consisted of a sound bar, 2 rear speakers, and a Sonos sub. That’s it, no receiver, amplifier, nothing. I expected something like the old “no highs, no lows, must be bose.” The thing actually sounded shockingly good. It made me question the racks and rooms filled with audio equipment I have.
Today while bored at work I decided to google a little about Sonos systems since I know nothing. The general consensus I’m reading online is that Bose has better sound quality, but Sonos is more user friendly and easier to use. Bose sounds better?
I didn’t do any critical listening or serious comparison. Are these things any good or am I loosing it? I did have a few beers lol. Getting rid of the towers and audio rack in the bedroom would at least make the girlfriend happy.
