As you all know, Sonos made the decision to cancel the production of the matte black SUB. When we began planning the SUB product, our estimates showed that the Matte SUB would cost less to produce than the gloss SUB. During the manufacturing process, we determined that this was not the case. In addition, the gloss finish has been well-received by our customers and continues to be in high-demand.
However, we want to fulfill our commitment to our long time Sonos owners and offer the Matte SUB for the price that we originally announced. For the next two weeks, we will be selling the limited quantity of matte SUBs that were produced for the originally stated MSRP which is $599/€599/£499.
A very limited quantity of matte SUBs are now available at http://www.sonos.com/shop/ and will be sold for two weeks or until gone.
Select online retailers in the US and Canada will also have limited stock of the matte SUB available for purchase while supplies last. These include:
Additionally, local dealers in the US and Canada may have limited stock of the matte SUB available.
Thank you and be sure to place your order soon.
EDIT - The matte SUB will not be available online through bestbuy.com as previously indicated.
