Details and marketing images of new Sonos speakers have leaked. Featuring a new soundbar, the trio of speakers will start at £499 and will launch on June 10.
Alex Alderson,

Leaked materials have confirmed that Sonos is on the verge of releasing a suite of new speakers. Leaked by Roland Quandt and Mart Verallo John, the new speakers will arrive on June 10 starting at £499.

The cheapest of the bunch will be the Sonos Five, a replacement for the Sonos Play:5 Gen2. Sporting new electronics, an updated processor and Wi-Fi, the Five supports Bluetooth LE and NFC. As the images below demonstrate, the Five has three large woofer speakers that Sonos has complemented with two tweeters and one midrange speaker. According to WinFuture and Roland Quandt, placing the Five on its side will automatically switch it to stereo mode. However, the speaker can be set stereo mode when placed vertically too. Additionally, the Five has a 3.5 mm line-in for connecting external sources.

Sonos has also updated the Sub, which is now on its third generation. Featuring the same upgrades as the Five, the Sub 3rd generation will retail for £699. 

The suite of new speakers also includes the Sonos ARC, a replacement for the PLAYBAR. Priced at £799, the ARC features an HDMI eARC connection and is Dolby Atmos capable. At 144 cm wide, the ARC is suited for 49-inch TVs and larger.

The three speakers will be available in black or white. It is unclear whether the Sonos ARC, Five or new Sub will launch on June 10 outside of the UK, though.
