Sonos is a US-listed company a manufacturer of high-end audio equipment aimed at an audience that does not like the complexities normally associated with the installation of high-end audio equipment, has expanded its range.

The company announced a more affordable (and oft-requested) wireless subwoofer called the Sonos Sub Mini, months after taking the wraps off the new, more affordable Sonos Ray soundbar.

Headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, Nasdaq has announced that the Sub Mini – a scaled-down version of the Sub Mini first introduced 10 years ago – will go on sale in South Africa (and other markets worldwide) on October 6 .

The Sub Mini costs $429 in the US, €499 in Europe or 10,999 rand locally (the weaker rand is starting to bite). This compares to an RRP of R18,999 for the larger Sub (now in its third generation).

Tandhoni Rao, product development leader at Sonos, told TechCentral in an interview ahead of the Sub Mini’s release on Tuesday that the new subwoofer is designed for small to medium-sized rooms up to 30 square meters.

It’s also designed to pair with the company’s smaller soundbars: the Beam and the Ray, which were introduced earlier this year (price: R6,499). The Arc’s top soundbar will also work with the Sub Mini, though it’s more likely that users will want to pair the Arc with the larger Sub, Rao said.

He said Sonos hopes to capitalize on the growing trend for direct-to-streaming movies, driving demand for high-quality audio solutions in the home. According to him, even video game companies are paying much more attention to audio fidelity in their titles, which is contributing to increased consumer demand for high-end audio products.

Channel 5 GHz

“Cinematic sound is becoming increasingly important in the home environment … creating greater depth and immersion in all types of content.”

The Sub uses a 5GHz channel and connects via 802.11n Wi-Fi. It also has a 100Mbps Ethernet port. Its diameter is 230 mm, height is 305 mm and weight is 6.35 kg. Like other Sonos products, you can choose between two colors: black or white. It has dual six-inch woofers aimed inward toward each other for what Sonos calls a “force-cancellation effect.” It comes with software called Trueplay, which Sonos says “measures the acoustics of the room and then fine-tunes the sound” (provided you have an iPhone or iPad handy to tune it). – © 2022 NewsCentral Media
