Read our full review on the OPPO Sonica Wi-Fi Speakers

OPPO has just released their Sonica wireless wi-fi speakers. They sound terrific.

OPPO Sonica Speakers in Use….Amazing!

You can get one and, because of the number of drivers, set the single speaker to play stereo, or you can get two of them, and set one to be the left channel and the other to be the right channel. At $299/each, they are a great value.

There are five drivers (3 active, 2 passive) in each speaker. The net weight is 5.3 pounds/each. The full specification list can be found at

They can be ordered in black or silver. We obtained a pair of the silver ones. Jason Liao, CTO and VP of Product Development for OPPO Digital, brought the Sonica Speakers over and set them up in the kitchen.

The panoramic photo shown below illustrates how we arranged them. The left channel is under a glassware cabinet. One of our cats, Eby, found the sound very interesting and was investigating the left channel when I took the photo. The right channel speaker is under another cabinet on the far right.

To use them, you first download and install the OPPO Sonica app to your iPhone or android phone by going to the app store for your particular phone.

Plug in your Sonica speaker(s) and run the app on your phone. Since the app is going through your wireless network router, you will need to type in your password to allow the speaker(s) to connect to the same router. The Sonica app will then find the speaker(s) and attach to your network. You set up the speaker(s) to either play stereo in one speaker, or play stereo through two speakers.
