Create stereo HomePod sound

Music enthusiasts may tell you to ignore claims of 360-degree sound and the like - for the purist's music experience you need a stereo setup, with a left and right pair delivering the sounds artists intended. The good news is that's possible with your HomePod - along with multi-room audio as well. If you're setting up a new HomePod, and you choose to add it to a room where a HomePod already lives, then you'll see a pop-up asking you if you want to create a stereo pair. You can only pair the same models of HomePod though, so no Mini and original mixing. As for multi-room audio, you can go ahead and pair your HomePod to your Sonos speakers thanks to AirPlay 2.
