Gimmicky speakers like these don't get a lot of talk on this forum, mostly because for 6 or 700 dollars, you can get a real decent quality system that ISN'T wireless or portable, but will sound many times better, due to bigger and higher quality drivers and more power.
I have heard the Sonos system and it didn't sound terrible, but also wasn't as good as the worst HT system I have ever owned, a 400 dollar HtIB (SLS Q line gold system). I bought an portable Ion speaker which sounds just as good as the Sonos and only cost 80 dollars. But you get what you pay for and my ion speaker battery now last about 5 min! 1 year old...
Also, wireless doesn't work all that well for HT, as delays can be an audio disaster.
