OPPO Sonica is a Wi-Fi speaker designed with state of the art technology and features delivering unbeatable sound quality in a compact package. Its ability to be placed virtually anywhere you have a power outlet makes it perfect for high resolution, multi-room music streaming that anyone with a smartphone or tablet can easily use.
Sonica comes equipped with both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of each of these technologies. With Wi-Fi, you get the benefit of controlling the speakers from anywhere in your home, higher quality sound, and the ability to stream to multiple speakers throughout your home. With Bluetooth, you have the convenience of a quick and simple connection for locations where Wi-Fi is not available.
Sonica is controlled via a dedicated app that can stream high resolution audio files up to 192 kHz / 24-bit from your mobile devices, USB drives, DLNA servers, or NAS drives. Sonica supports AirPlay and DLNA when connected via Wi-Fi or Ethernet, Bluetooth, and direct connection via a 3.5 mm analog input.
Sonica’s lifelike and dynamic sound is unparalleled in its class. Its curved shape is purposefully designed for a wider sound field and its internal reinforcement ribs for maximum stability. Sonica’s amplifiers are specially matched to each of the speaker drivers, and each driver is optimally integrated using a DSP chip to achieve the best sound balance.
Sonica also features bass radiators, which are unique for a product in this price category. The bass radiators work to cancel out unwanted vibrations, ensuring that Sonica does not move or shake when music is played at very high volumes. In addition, Sonica features multiple sound optimization presets that can be used to tune the speaker’s sound for different room environments and listening preferences.

IOS 13 has broken the app
I’ve been happily using the app since I bought mu Sonic DAC in 2017. Unfortunately iOS 13 has broken the app and the remote control function is broken (it now longer appears as a new screen, the app freezes).
Stereo pair of speaker now bricks
Well, what a bummer. I bought a stereo pair of speakers that I use heavily, based on my years of great experiences with many Oppo products. Unfortunately, they decided to get out of the hardware business shortly thereafter. But they still supported the app for a while, so it was not a total loss. Until now. After iOS 13 came out, the app crashed right after startup. Which renders the stereo pair totally inoperable. I can play through one speaker without using the app, but strangely I only get one channel of audio. So basically I have two very expensive bricks.
Update. So a year later they released a new version, claiming it fixes the iOS 13 problem. Do not believe it. The app still crashes on startup. Two expensive speakers are still bricks.
Poor remote for an excellent DAC
The Sonia DAC itself is an excellent DAC, but the remote app is dreadful. The fact that this is the only remote available for the DAC makes it all the more painful. It requires multiple clicks just to get a fine grain volume control with up and down arrows. The app seems to disconnect with the device every time the phone or iPad goes to sleep and goes back to the default screen requiring multiple clicks again to get back to the last screen I was using. I really hope Oppo improves this app to bring it on par with the quality of the DAC or better yet makes a physical remote available.
