Does the Sonos app for your home audio system have a black app icon? If so, you’re on the system called Sonos S1. You’ve probably heard about this before, but we have reason to believe that Sonos eventually will phase out Sonos S1. If you still depend on Sonos S1 for music in your home, it’s going to be a problem in the future. We believe that not upgrading to the new Sonos S2 prolongs the inevitable.
Thankfully, they are having a limited time special promotion right now to make this transition more palatable. Sonos is offering up to 30% off Sonos S2 equipment to upgrade your Sonos S1 system.
Guaranteed S1 Upgrades
- 15% off the Sonos Arc for Playbar owners.
- 30% off the new Port for S1 Connect owners. If you have in-home speakers and a Sonos S1 system, you probably have an S1 Connect.
- 30% off the new Amp for S1 Amp owners. If you have in-home speakers and a Sonos S1 system, you probably have an S1 Amp.
You may be eligible for additional discounts for other Sonos S1 devices. All of our customers who have transitioned from S1 to S2 through SoundVision have found the process painless! If you want to learn about what other devices are eligible for an upgrade or want us to help install and transition your system from S1 to S2, call us at 415-456-7000.
Great Benefits to Sonos S2
Sonos S2 offers a vast array of benefits over Sonos S1. For those who value good sound quality, Sonos S2 can deliver significantly higher-quality audio with formats like FLAC. We think those with high-quality in-ceiling speakers will greatly appreciate this benefit. Sonos S2 also offers compatibility with more streaming services to ensure your favorite streaming services are available.
Finally, Sonos S2 allows for some really exciting 3D audio options. The Sonos Arc and Beam soundbars support Dolby Atmos, an audio standard that allows for audio to move not only left and right but also up and down. Sonos’ new Era 300 speaker can be used with these soundbars to improve the experience or can be used independently for spacial audio. Spatial audio is an emerging format that works similarly to Dolby Atmos. It is intended to make it feel like you’re listening to live music, with sounds seemingly coming from all different heights and positions for a fully immersive effect.
Spatial Audio and Dolby Atmos
Finally, Sonos S2 offers some exciting new options for 3D audio. The Sonos Arc and Beam soundbars support Dolby Atmos, an advanced audio standard that allows sounds to move left and right and also up and down. For an even better experience, you can pair these soundbars with Sonos’ new Era 300 speaker, which can also be used independently for spatial audio. Spatial audio is a cutting-edge audio format that creates a sense of immersion by making it feel like you’re listening to the music live, with sounds coming from all different heights and positions.
With Sonos S2, you can enjoy a fully immersive audio experience that puts you in the middle of the action.
