Sonos or Bose Revisited?

Last year we discussed choosing between Bose and Sonos. Now that we are authorized Sonos dealers, clients continue to ask, “Should I go with Sonos or Bose?” We thought it would be good to revisit this topic. This is a question that does not allow for a simple yes or no answer as there are many factors involved. Do you have existing Bose or Sonos equipment? Remember the Bose and Sonos music platforms will not work together. Additionally, Bose has 2 different music platforms, Soundtouch and Bose Music, that are not compatible. If you have existing Bose or Sonos equipment and are expanding your system, you need to stay with the brand you have. Also, if you want a true 5.1 Home Theater system, you probably want to go with Bose. Bose still offers a 5 speaker Lifestyle system whereas Sonos offers Soundbars with the option to add rear speakers. If you want in wall, in-ceiling, or surface mounted outdoor speakers, Sonos does not offer those type of speakers. However, for those applications, you can use Bose speakers and Sonos amplifiers to get the best of both worlds, Bose speakers and Sonos Music amplifiers. For help in designing your system, please take advantage of our FREE consultation service. We offer both in Home and Virtual consultations.
