Speaker - Sonos Five
Why we chose it: Simply put, Sonos is the best sounding and easiest to use wireless multi-room audio solution on the market. The new Sonos Five is the best sounding speaker in the Sonos ecosystem featuring three high excursion woofers and three directional tweeters to project a stereo image from a single speaker. Better yet, add a second Sonos Five to create a stereo pair. The Sonos app also supports all major streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal.
Turntable - Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB
Why we chose it: T1 Phono SB delivers lively, balanced and highly involving sound. An integrated phono pre-amp means this turntable is ready to connect directly to the Sonos Five without any additional components. Audiophile-grade features include a prematched factory-mounted cartridge, sapphire bearings, electronic speed control, and a glass platter. Equipped with the high-quality OM5e cartridge by the pioneering cartridge manufacturer Ortofon.
