So they fucked up your order and you didn’t get the sofa and now they’re offering you in-store vouchers? Laughing out loud

I’m hoping you get the sofa and vouchers or that’s a major corporate cucking

They’re great for convenience (Spotify, Mixcloud, Soundcloud play through the app without having to play on your phone/tablet, and the small form factor etc) and multiroom is good if you would ever use it. Sound quality is actually pretty good but can’t touch a decent amp and speakers set up. I went Sonos throughout the house and i’m happy enough but do miss my old Marantz amp and Eltax floor standers set up.

Edit: you can get a ‘Connect’ which adds your existing set up to the Sonos ecosystem if you want the best of both worlds

^^^agree 100%

Love the convenience of a Sonos. Got a couple in my place and they're great pieces of kit.

Still getting the sofa, albeit a couple of months late.

Might just get some cushions then (Sad ) and have a look at the sonos connect, didn’t realise you could get that. I have a little Logitech Bluetooth thing I use at the moment, but it’s flakey.

Bollocks, I’ve ordered a new HAY couch and was hoping to get it before Christmas. Shite that you can no longer get the raf fabric on furniture though as it apparently doesn’t meet fire regs

Sonos are very nice, love playing everything through their app.

Personally got a Play 1 and now looking to expand the range, hopefully there will be a new Play 3 soon.

Can't go wrong with sonos, so easy. Another option is this:

Just add speakers.

Pre-amp if you already have an amp:

Ordered my sofa from loaf.
They delivered the wrong sofa, then took 10 weeks to make/deliver another.
When they finally delivered it, the delivery men brought no bolts to assemble it.
They just left it like this…
Customer services on the phone said that it couldn't be stored like that as it would ruin the velvet..
Then took 10 days to come and sort it.
The whole thing was a fucking disaster. They kept trying to deliver it to the wrong address, ringing me up to tell me the wrong information…
eventually They gave me £350 back and £200 in credit.

When I went to use the credit, they sent the item to the wrong address despite ringing me 4 times throughout a week to tell me that it was deffo going to my flat.

Fuck buying anything from loaf ever again.

Fuck ever buying a brand new sofa. EBay every time. They depreciate to buttons as soon as they've been delivered.

Might have a bit of a drive to get something you want but it's just the cost of a Transit for the day.

My last purchase was a 1500 quid 6 month old Habitat 2 seater and I paid 15 quid + 45 van hire.

Nice - you brought a sofa that some other cunt has shagged their missus on and had multiple wanks whilst she’s out - mix that in with the dogs ass and bolloks all over it
