Sonos One SL speaker review

The Sonos One SL has a lovely, small and neat design that is almost identical to the Sonos One. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The One SL has no microphones on board like the Sonos One, however, so while there are no smart assistants, it's also good for privacy. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Like many of the newer Sonos speakers, the One SL has capacitive controls for play/pause, volume up/down and track skip. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The SL offers plenty of features, including the ability to stereo pair with another One SL or One. Two can also be used as cinema surrounds with a Beam or Arc. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The One SL features a pairing button, Ethernet port, and has Bluetooth Low Energy for easy pairing, making setup simple. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The One SL has two class-D amplifiers, custom drivers, a tweeter and a mid-woofer inside -- and it sounds excellent for its size. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Sonos One SL is not portable like the Sonos Roam. Instead it needs to be plugged into a mains socket at all times. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The One SL doesn't have the flexibility of Roam, or the soundstage of Move, but it's a fantastic speaker -- and perfect for using as cinema surrounds. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
