JustARandomGuy2015 3,569 305 May 21, 2014 at 12:39 PM
Any sales now or soon? And what else do I need to make it work the way I want?

I use iPhone 5s pandora etc. So I need sonos 5, a bridge do I need express air too?

If you buy a Sonos Playbar, then you won't need the bridge, of course the Playbar is $700, but it makes the TV sound great.

There haven't been any recent deals on Sonos, I had a deal alert set up and was actively checking websites as well. We have the Playbar and two of the Sonos 3 but wanted a Sonos 1 for the bathroom.

Finally gave up on a deal and used Shop Discover to buy it from ABT to get 5% cash back, plus no tax and free shipping.

If you buy playbar(800$) u shud get sub , I have the combination and it sounds great

I didnt connect the playbar to Ethernet so I bought the bridge

You only need to connect one sonos component to LAN to setup the wireless

There is rarely a deal on sonos, crutch field had some refurbs for little less but that's it


Hope that helps

I am wanting a sonos 5 or sound bar for music, I have a tv theater set up vizio but I have a back deck and I want a portable sound player for get togethers or if I want music in another room I like the idea of carrying it to the room or onto back porch or in garage for beer pong. Or grilling on the deck,


What would be better for me? Sonos 5 or sound bar for portability. It's literally for my little party events, will get a sub eventually regardless. Sound bar to me doesn't seem as easy to carry around for portable music.

School me, what's better for me?


My living room sound bar and sub already sounds my house with music. So basically want a stereo for garage and back deck. Lol. Sonos regardless is going to be overkill but whatever.

Soundbar is too heavy (and bulky) to carry around. Sonos 5 is overkill for parties and the garage. Sonos 1 is for more humid or rugged environments. I would get that or the Sonos 3. Take a look at the comparison chart on their home page.

About halfway down the page...

I think I'm going to get 5, its not much bigger and it's only 100 more. If it has decent bass may not need the sub for the small areas. Looks nice too. I do appreciate all your info, next 50 rebate I see on amazon and such I'm pulling trigger


What do I need for my phone to use bluetooth to it? Itunes pandora etc? Bridge or something else?

I just chatted with amazon, inquiring on their promotions. He said he does remember the $50 rebate for amazon via the sonos 5 and will have promotions contact me to see if theres anything i can get,

googling i found this site
https://www.govx.com/p/2155/sonos...sic-system

it seems they have the sonos things about 40 cheaper, but 8 for shipping. i'd rather be with amazon for customer service and tax free and shipping., but ive never seen GovX before. Interesting website.

What do you think about this guys?
I called sonos directly, they said they can give me the Sonos 5 + bridge for 390 (tax included) without tax it would be 360. he said he can give me the bridge for free, and drop 10% off. only killer is tax. but its probably the best deal i'l be able to get right now.








Edit- Ordered black Sonos 5, and bridge.

$385 shipped with taxes included. woo not a bad deal.

I have some coupons! They get you a free bridge with your purchase ($49 value). Not a huge discount considering the overall price of everything but sonos does really do sales. They are offering free shipping. I actually got free overnight shipping and a free bridge when I did it by adding a free overnight shipping coupon and then adding the free bridge coupon. You'd like the shipping one would get cancelled but it didn't!

Anyway, each of these only works once so sorry if you have to try a few.
