Exciting is too tame a word for this contest: the Sonos One is the speaker so many people across Canada covet. It’s smart! It’s has amazing sound! More than one can easily be paired for stereo sound. And … you can win one in this contest! Yes that is correct, Best Buy is giving away 4 prizes of a Sonos One speaker (I have 3 black and one white at my desk to give away!)

What is so special about a Sonos One

Sonos has been around for a few years now, long enough to have earned its place as a dependable, well crafted, great sounding, wireless Wi-Fi home speaker. Talk to an owner of a Sonos speaker and they will go on and on about the things they love about them. Okay, even many non-owners will do that. I’ve noticed that many, many people have Sonos on their wish-lists: so a contest like this is perfect!

This is the year of voice activation, and the Sonos One has that built right in: ask Alexa anything. That is just one of the fantastic features you’ll enjoy with this speaker.  Here are some more:

  • Room filling sound. CNET called the Sonos One the first smart speaker that “sounds great with music.” (I laughed when I read that the first time! Why else would you want a speaker in your home?)
  • Multi-room compatible: fill your home with synchronized music where the Sonos in the bedroom plays the same music as the Sonos in the living room … the kitchen … the basement….
  • Stereo sound: use 2 Sonos One speakers for great stereo sound.
  • You choose the music source: the Sonos app will connect with most music services. Use Spotify, or Google Play, or Apple Music!

On top of a great design and the great sound, you can control it with your voice! “Alexa! Turn up the volume.” That would be my favourite command. You can also try some of the ever-growing Alexa skills to get the latest news flash, check Air Canada flight times and much, much more.


Entering this contest is easy but you can only enter once. In a comment below this article, tell us what you like most about the Sonos One. Is it the sound, the design, the versatility … or something I have not mentioned in this article? That’s all you need to do for a valid contest entry.


At the end of the contest we will draw 4 winners from all eligible entries. Three winners will get a black Sonos One, and one winner will get a white Sonos One.

This contest runs from March 9th 2018 until March 23rd 2018.

Remember you can only enter once, so make it count by telling us which feature is your favourite. Of course, you should share this post with family and friends. If one of them wins you can negotiate a time share: 2 weeks at your home, 2 weeks at theirs … repeat!

Good Luck!

Just love audio that covers the entire audio spectrum with no compromise, as found in Sonos speakers.
