Heos vs Sonos

Heos vs. Sonos - Who has the best streaming music player today? Is Heos better than Sonos?


We wrote an article on this a couple years ago and we've seen that this topic is VERY popular today as it has become our leader in all-time hits! We decided to make a video that details some of the basics when it comes to:


The app itself

The ecosystem of related products such as streaming music players, soundbars and portable speakers

The ease of use

Pros and cons of both



Check out our video in the link below that points out the features of both. NOTE: As much as we wanted to crown a champion (a few years ago, we deemed Sonos as the streaming player KING in their previous Face-off), we did see benefits to both and in our opinion, Heos has gotten much better from a reliability stand-point than it was a few years ago.

Sonos vs. Heos

NOTE: With both of these systems, having a GOOD wired and WiFi network is very important. See our video about "How to fix Sonos" below that details some important network steps that are pertinent for both Heos and Sonos.

Got Sonos problems?

Instead of typing up a book about these two streaming competitors, we've created about 25 minutes of content between both these videos. This should help you decide which is better for you between Sonos or Heos AND it will aid in setting your network up correctly to accommodate both systems.

Products used for this testing were:


Sonos AMP streaming amplifier

Sonos PORT streaming player

Sonos ONE portable speaker

Sonos BEAM soundbar

Denon HOME 150 portable speaker

Denon HOME SOUND BAR 550 soundbar

Denon HEOS LINK streaming player

Denon HEOS HSAMP streaming amplifier

Marantz NR1711 audio/video receiver
