    If you're not going to attach it to anything, then you could get away with a few 1's - we have three of them around the house because there was no need to attach it to the tv or anything like that.

    No idea what a soundbar is, but I doubt I have any desire for one. It sounds boomy.


    I am seeing a friend's '3' this weekend to ensure it's not OTT for me - my only real requirement is to be able to hear music whether I'm cooking, or having a pee. Nothing more complicated than that.

    Makes your flat screen TV sound better as lots have cr*ppy speakers.

    It is basically a long thin speaker that you can put under your flat screen telly. They sell them in Argos and Comet as well as proper places.

    Whether you want one or not depends on whether your flat screen TV sounds cr*p, or you are into your acoustics.

    Thanks Sue, my TV doesn't sound great, but there again I'm not at all arsed about how it sounds as I don't really even watch it that often.

    Filling Your Home With the Sound of Sonos Just Got More Expensive - Bloomberg

    Wireless-speaker maker Sonos will raise prices in the U.K. across its range of home-audio systems, meaning the sound of Brexit-driven price increases will now be heard clearly, in sync, in every room.

    The company on Monday said it would raise prices on Feb. 23, increasing the cost of its music speakers, wireless receivers and home-theater accessories by as much as 25%.

    The price of a mid-range PLAY:3 speaker will rise 15% to £299, while the cost of an amplifier will go up 25% to £499.

    This was in the Times. They said a 17% drop in the value of sterling necessitates the price hike. That does equate to a 20% increase in prices, so prices rising from 15%-25% seems fair.
    Fact check: Mostly false

    At least they were good enough to contact all their registered customers (and the press), so it isn't just a surprise, or an undisclosed rise.

    As a nerd I love the idea of these systems but as a realist I'm fairly sure it's going to be another of these things where it doesn't ever QUITE do what you want.

    Side question - do any of these systems tie in with Alexa et al yet i.e. do they have microphones?
