Sonos One

Sonos One takes the sound quality of Sonos speakers and adds in Alexa for a smart speaker that sounds pretty smart too. It bills itself as mini-but-mighty and gives you a little light to let you know when the speaker's microphones are active so you can keep an eye on your privacy too. It's not the cheapest smart speaker on the market, but audiophiles will likely approve.

Shares your information with 3rd parties for unexpected reasons
Nearly every company collects some kind of information on its users. That’s how the internet works. It’s how they use and care for this information that matters. You should know whether a company shares or sells your personal information to others and for what reasons. For the purpose of this report Mozilla determined that if according to a company’s privacy policy, it appeared to share data with third parties that could then use that information to market or advertise to customers, then we labeled it as “Shares information with third parties for unexpected reasons.” This does not mean your information is definitely used for these purposes. Simply that the policy leaves the possibility open your information could be used in this way.

😮What could happen if something went wrong

Sonos does a pretty good job with privacy and security. Still, with Alexa built in, Amazon could know your are depressed based on the sad music you are listening to and send you ads for self-help books.
