Home speaker company Sonos raise United Kingdom prices 25% following Brexit vote

Sonos Play 1 and the rest of its smart speaker portfolio have seen a price increase

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.

California-based home sound system company Sonos will raise their United Kingdom prices by 25% to reflect the changing value of the pound against the dollar following the UK's vote to leave the EU. "In the United Kingdom, this includes local taxation and import duties, but we pay for everything we make in USA dollars", the Santa Barbara, Calif-based company said. As Sonos told the Graun, "Over recent months, there has been a significant change on the U.S. dollar to GBP exchange rate". Other products including the popular Play range will see price rises of around 15%.

The reason, of course, is the dramatic fall in the value of the pound following the result of the country's Brexit referendum, as the company explained.

"Sonos will not be top of my list when it comes time to upgrade".

Samsung's boss questioned again over influence-peddling
It remains uncertain whether prosecutors will again seek an arrest warrant for Lee after failing with their January 19 request. Prosecutors will decide whether to again seek an arrest warrant for Lee by next week.

The company's Connect:Amp will receive the full 25% increase, with its price rising from £399 to £499, Sonos said.

The news of the upcoming price increase follows Sonos last week confirming its speakers were about to get Alexa support.

The Play:1 will rise to £199 (from £169), the Play:3 to £299 (from £259) and the Play:5 to £499 (from £429). If you've had your eye on some Sonos products, then, it's probably best to buy now instead of later.

Brexit has already inspired a cut into consumers' wallets.
