Sonos just unveiled two new smart speakers, and both the Sonos Era 300 and the more affordable Era 100 are available for pre-order in Malaysia now too. Connectivity is one of the main highlights of the smart speakers – they support both Bluetooth and USB-C line-in.
First, Malaysian pricing. The Era 100 is the more affordable speaker of the two with a RM1,599 price tag. As for the larger Era 300, it retails at RM2,799. They are now available for pre-order locally through TC Acoustic or the Sonos Concept Store at The Starhill in Bukit Bintang.
Given its higher price tag, the Era 300 is the more premium speaker. It has six drivers with Dolby Atmos support, so spatial audio is certainly one of its main features. The Era 300 can also be paired to two speakers – such as the Arc or Beam (Gen 2) – to create a “supercharged Dolby Atmos experience,” as Sonos puts it.
As for the Era 100, it is the successor to the Sonos One. It comes with two angled tweeters for stereo output, a rather compact design, and two units of the Era 100 can act as the rear speakers for surround sound when they’re paired to a soundbar. Alternatively, two units can be paired for improved stereo sound as well.
To recap, the Sonos Era 100 and Era 300 are now available for pre-order in Malaysia. They will hit store shelves towards the end of the month from 28 March onwards.
