Looking for a Sonos surround alternative? Or are you interested in multi-room audio but do not fancy going with Sonos? We have hand-selected the best alternatives to Sonos wireless speakers below… Sonos is not without rival and these Sonos alternatives all work on the same wireless network with internet radio and local music file streaming at a fraction of Sonos prices.
The main feature of the SoundTouch models and other competing wireless speakers is Bluetooth connectivity, as Sonos is only compatible with your home or office WiFi network. This means if you want to take your wireless speaker with you outside to the beach, then you are better off finding a cheap Sonos alternative instead. You can pick up lots of budget wireless speakers for under £100. Although they do not match the same power and sound quality as Sonos, they can still be practical for some.
