So far, we only have HomePod—which is set to launch in Canada on June 18—as the sole speaker on the list which supports AirPlay 2. But with Sonos set to hold an event next week, expect the company to also announce details regarding AirPlay 2 for their One, Play:5 and Playbase speakers. It’s also worth noting the cheapest AirPlay 2 speaker is the Sonos One, priced at $249 CAD.
