A number of companies have increase the price of their devices in the UK following the Brexit vote and the latest one to increase prices is Sonos.
Sonos is increasing prices in the UK due to the exchange rate, the pound has fallen significantly since the UK voted to leave Europe.
Our prices are defined regionally. In the UK, this includes local taxation and import duties, but we pay for everything we make in US dollars.
Over recent months, there has been a significant change on the US Dollar to GBP exchange rate. As a result, our existing pricing has become unsustainable and, like many other companies, we have to increase prices for all products priced in GBP.
The Play: 1 speaker which previously cost £169 will now cost £199 and the Play:3 which previously cost £259 will not cost £299, the Play:5 is being increased from £429 to £499.
Sonos is increasing the price of its Connect range of devices by around 25 percent and you can see the new range of prices here.
