Sonos price rises are on the way

Home speaker manufacturer Sonos has raised its United Kingdom prices in the wake of Brexit. But if the ad does inspire you to invest in some Sonos tech, Brits might want to buy sooner rather than later as the company has announced that it will shortly be raising its United Kingdom prices by up to 25% ... "We pay for everything we make in U.S. dollars", the company said in a statement. As Sonos told the Graun, "Over recent months, there has been a significant change on the United States dollar to GBP exchange rate". In some cases, prices are increasing as much as 25%, and when we're talking about the high-end, that kind of jump can hurt. "As a result, our existing pricing has become unsustainable". The full list of price increases can be viewed over on the Sonos website.

For instance, the Sonos Play:1 launched at a price of £169 back in 2013, has yet to be superseded, and still retails at the same price. The company's CONNECT line of equipment for upgrading existing sound systems is seeing the highest hike (£279 to £349 for basic, and £399 to £499 for the tonier CONNECT:AMP).

Bad news for audiophiles who happen to be in the UK: Sonos hardware is about to get significantly more expensive. The reason behind the price hike is simple.

So from 23rd February if you want to buy any Sonos product you'll have to pay more.

Sonos isn't the first manufacturer to introduce Brexit-based price increases.

Brexit has already inspired a cut into consumers' wallets.
