Sonos becomes the latest company to hike United Kingdom prices

Posted February 15, 2017

Starting February 23, you'll have to pay as much as 25 percent more for products made by Sonos. Their Play:1 will be selling for £199, up from £169, and the Sonos Play:3 will be £40 more expensive at £299.

They're not the first major company to hike prices in response to the Brexit vote, and the subsequent collapse in sterling.

Earlier this year Apple confirmed it would be raising the download prices in its App Store in the United Kingdom by 25%, while in October Microsoft also announced price increases for some of its software services in the United Kingdom triggered by the drop in value of the pound.

So from 23rd February if you want to buy any Sonos product you'll have to pay more. Each will rise by £100 from £599 to £699.

SPEAKER MAKER Sonos has become the latest tech firm to announce that it'll be increasing its prices in the United Kingdom because of bloody Brexit. The full list of price increases can be viewed over on the Sonos website. "In the United Kingdom, this includes local taxation and import duties, but we pay for everything we make in USA dollars".

KitGuru Says: It seems that these price increases are becoming a worrying trend here in the United Kingdom.

"Over recent months, there has been a significant change on the U.S. dollar to GBP [GB pounds] exchange rate".

The Guardian reports that prices will go up by a quarter in some cases, with Sonos Connect rising from £279 to £349 and the Connect Amp rising from £399 to £499.
