Earlier this month, a report revealed that Sonos had a new speaker in the works. The Roam is designed to move from one area to the next, rather than sit in one room. And, with that, it's priced to move, too.
Sonos is not a stranger to a portable speaker. The Sonos Move had its fans, but it was also not the smallest option out there. Sonos looks to be addressing that soon with the upcoming Sonos Roam.
Sonos has joined in on the Black Friday sales fun, offering significant discounts on some of its popular smart speakers. For a limited time, you can pick up the battery-powered Sonos Move, the Sonos Beam TV sound bar and more, for $100 off their retail prices.

Sonos' wireless speaker system is receiving the Sonos S2 operating system update this month. It will bring "new features, usability updates, and more personalization moving forward... to enable higher resolution audio technologies for music and home theater."

Sonos cofounder John MacFarlane has hit back at Spotify's cofounder and CEO Daniel Ek who recently whined about Apple's platforms not being, in his personal view, open enough to third-party apps like Spotify.

If you happen to be in the market for a new soundbar, and enjoy the Sonos brand, the company has just unveiled a new, premium option.
"Recycle Mode" has been controversial from the start, and Sonos has finally decided to bring it to an end.
Earlier this week, Sonos made waves by announcing that its legacy products would stop getting support.
Smart speaker maker Sonos announced Tuesday that it is phasing out development for several of its oldest products. The company said in a blog post that it will no longer update software or add new features for original Zone Players, Connect, Connect:Amp, first-generation Play:5, CR200, and Bridge devices beginning in May.
