Sonos has discounted many of its refurbished speakers to some of the best prices we’ve seen. A refurbished Arc will set you back just about $540, which is a whopping $360 cheaper than a brand new model. The Sonos Five, one of our favorite music-focused speakers, normally costs $549, but a refurbished model is on sale for just over $373, so you can save about $175. And if you’re looking to get your first Sonos speaker, we recommend the Sonos One SL, which you can pick up refurbished for only $119.

You might be hesitant to buy a refurbished gadget, and that’s why it’s important to check out the conditions of a company’s refurbished program before doing so. Sonos includes all necessary accessories, manuals and replacement parts with its refurbished devices, and they come with the same one-year warranty as new items, too. Considering how expensive it can get to build your dream home entertainment system (whether with all Sonos devices or not), going the refurbished route is a good option if you’re on a budget.
The Sonos Arc soundbar is one of our favorites and we gave it a score of 85 when it first came out. We like its modern design, excellent sound quality, support for Dolby Atmos and directional audio, plus its ability to recalibrate to your living room when you add additional speakers into the mix. The Sonos Five, on the other hand, is really for music lovers and those who want the best audio quality possible. We also appreciate its simple setup process and how easily it can be added to existing Sonos systems.
Alternatively, the Sonos One SL is a good option for those who don’t have a sound system in place yet. It’s the microphone-free version of the Sonos One, which means it’s also good for those who don’t care to have a virtual assistant speaker in their homes. It has a compact yet attractive design, great sound quality, WiFi and AirPlay 2 support, and stereo audio capabilities when you pair two of them together. Plus, it’s one of the cheaper options you can get from Sonos — a brand new one costs $199, which isn’t bad, but grabbing a refurbished model for $119 is even better.
