If you're in the market for a new Sonos speaker, this is the place to be. As its What Hi-Fi? 2023 Award certifies, the Sonos Era 300 was one of the best wireless speakers of this year, offering superb audio, excellent streaming features and impressive spatial audio capabilities, as well as all the tricks and bonuses you get from being part of Sonos' superb ecosystem.
The Era 300 doesn't usually come cheap, though, with a rather hefty RRP of around £450. Don't fret, though, because we've seen some hefty discounts on the Era 300 recently, indicating that Sonos will pull prices down when it feels the time is right.

To give you an impression of how good the Sonos Era 300 is, it's worth revisiting the verdict from our original review. We said it "performs admirably with any format of music... no matter what source or genre. The addition of Bluetooth streaming, not to mention the vast array of features you get from being part of Sonos’s seamless experience, goes a long way toward justifying the rather high price tag. It all adds up to an enticing experience that’s worth embarking on."
That's a pretty hearty recommendation, but before you rush to add one to your basket, it's worth considering what you're really getting with the Era 300. While some may quibble as to the aesthetic merits of its "cinched hourglass" design, the speaker's ability to fire out immersive, large-scaled audio in all directions thanks to its six-driver arrangement justifies that rather odd shape. The spatial experience (through Amazon Music and Apple Music) is convincing, while the quality of the audio that's being bounced around your living room remains mature, assured and richly musical.
Let's not forget, either, that this is a Sonos speaker, meaning it comes with all the bells and whistles you'd expect. The Sonos app is intuitive to use, Trueplay room calibration works a treat, and it can slotted into a wider Sonos multi-room ecosystem easily. It's feature-packed too, with Wi-Fi 6, AirPlay 2, Bluetooth 5.0 streaming on board, a wired USB-C line-in input and improved touch controls, while voice control comes via Alexa or Sonos' own voice playback command system.
The Era 300's price has been pulled down significantly in recent sales events, so we'd recommend keeping this page in your metaphorical wallet to stay on track with the deals as they arrive.
