The long-awaited $429 Sub-Mini doesn't disillusion, but there are even reasons to opt for the standard Sub

Until now, the only way to fully realize a "full" Sonos home theater system was to cough up $749 for a subwoofer — on top of what you'd pay for a Sonos soundbar and rear surround.
That total can quickly balloon to $2,000, depending on the soundbar you want.
