    pokies! a Sonos one has Alexa built into it. you've given the people a link to the old rubbish sounding Sonos Play:1. I use 2 Play:1 speakers for surround sound which is just fine but they're utter rubbish for music when played in the same room as a Sonos One with Alexa built in. if a person buys the play:1 they still need to but at least an echo dot and I paid less for my Sonos One with Alexa integrated than I did for my Play:1 and an Alexa dot.
