Sonos Unveils Era 300 And Era 100 Smart Speakers

Sonos has announced new Era 300 and Era 100 smart speakers. In addition to Bluetooth 5.0, both speakers support AirPlay 2 for wirelessly streaming audio.

The higher-end Era 300 features an hourglass design with six class-D digital amplifiers, four tweeters, two woofers, USB-C line in, and a far-field microphone array with beamforming and multi-channel echo cancellation. 

Era 300 is the first Sonos speaker capable of multi-channel surround sound when used as rear speakers in a home theater system, and features Trueplay technology for automatic EQ optimizations.

The lower-end Era 100 is the successor to the Sonos One speaker and features a cylindrical design with three class-D digital amplifiers, two tweeters, and one woofer. Like the Era 300, it has USB-C line in, a far-field microphone array, and Trueplay.

Both speakers can be pre-ordered now and will be available globally starting March 28, with pricing set at $559 and $319, respectively.
