Sonos is the gold standard when it comes to multi-room wireless speaker systems. Unlike Bluetooth set-ups, Sonos’s speaker system hooks up directly to your WiFi, so it is not affected by the location or service quality of your cell phone. Via the internet, it can play music from any of song app as well as your entire music library, and it can be controlled by your phone, tablet or computer.
Since Sonos provides a better home-sound experience than a network of Bluetooth speakers, the upper echelon speakers do cost more money. (The SONOS Play: 1, the smallest of their speakers, costs slightly less). Right now, Sonos is acknowledging that fact. For the time being (ostensibly for Father’s Day), if you purchase a Sonos speaker from Sonos, Best Buy or Amazon, you will actually receive a gift card to that respective site.
The value of the gift card is commensurate to the speaker that you purchase. At any of the three vendors, if you get the intro speaker — the SONOS Play: 1 – you get a $20 gift card. If you go with the intermediary system – the Play: 3 — you get a $30 gift card, and if you go all the way with your home speaker experience with a Play: 5, then you get a $50 gift card in return.

Unfortunately, upgrading your home audio capabilities is not a cheap endeavor. That said, if you want a professional-quality experience, it’s definitely best if you can score a gift card out of the process.
