Product Description

PLAY:5 | The bigger room, bigger sound wireless speaker

The PLAY:5 provides crystal-clear, high quality sound that rivals much larger, more complicated systems. With 5 state-of-the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with 5 speakers, the PLAY:5 delivers superior sound in any room. A subwoofer produces powerful bass while two mid-range drivers and two tweeters fill out the sound. Additionally, a line-in lets you connect other sound sources.

Start with a BRIDGE, and a PLAY:5, or pair two PLAY:5s in the same room for massive stereo sound. Continue to add as many Sonos speakers as you want throughout your home, wirelessly.

Style Name: PLAY:3Color Name: Black
Here's the problem with Sonos. Most of these reviews are worthless for a new customer as they have no concept what the various components do, how they fit together and what they should get! In fact, I will say that Sonos could significantly improve the messaging of their products. Think about it -- is a new customer going to have any idea what ZonePlayer or Bridge means. Even their website is quite confusing for someone new to all of this stuff. For example, they sell a ZonePlayer120 and ZonePlayer90, which have vastly different functionality. Sonos should just get rid of their marketing folks and hire some people from Apple to fix the messaging confusion. My advice for folks who want to learn more about Sonos is to find a friend with one or go to local stereo shop. Fortunately, the folks on the tech-side of Sonos know what the heck they are doing and why I give this 5 stars!

OK, I just bought a new Black Play:3 along with the Bridge. In a nutshell, here is probably all you need to know:

- Why... The Play:3 is essentially for folks who want to listen to their digital music through a high-quality speaker system that is wirelessly connected to sources of music. Typically, the music is coming from your computer's library (e.g., iTunes) or some internet service such as Pandora or TuneIn (internet radio). How do you control all of this -- by using one of their nifty free apps which run on iPhones, iPod Touch, Androids, iPads (with more to come).

- The Play:3 is your speaker component where sound comes out of. The only connection to worry about is AC power. The beauty of this is that you can move your speaker anywhere in your house at will just as you would with a clock radio.

- The Bridge is a little white box that connects to your WiFi router.

Style Name: PLAY:5Color Name: White Verified Purchase

Sonos is a wireless speaker system that streams music from your COMPUTER HARD DISK (such as your iTunes library or other downloaded music) or streams music from the INTERNET (such as 100 thousand internet radio stations, Pandora, Spotify, Rhapsody or most anything else) directly to Sonos Speakers. You CHOOSE that music on the fly using the Sonos iPhone or Android apps (or others). With Sonos, such music does not need to stream THROUGH your phone. You use the phone just for the purpose of making your choices. (The phone is the controller not the streamer, unless you want it to be)

Sonos is special because of the extraordinary range of music available, the intuitive phone app interface which so simply controls every aspect of the experience, the sound quality, the whole home flexibility, the ease of setup and installation, and the benefits of doing all this without needing to stream from the phone.

All you need to get started is one Sonos speaker (like the Play1, Play3, Play5 or Playbar) and possibly one Sonos Bridge (which connects the Sonos wireless network to your home network. See "Do you need a bridge?", below). Note that each of these speakers is fully self contained, including its own amp, pre-amp, sonos-wireless network, wireless access to the full range of music from your computer or the internet, and the ability to respond to sonos controller apps on your phones and tablets.

If you want, you can later add Sonos speakers for every room in your home, all perfectly integrated with your same phone/tablet controllers, music and grouping options.

Style Name: PLAY:1Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
I have been a Sonos user for over four years now but this is the first time I purchased some of their speakers. I had the connect unit going into either stand alone Bose unit in living room that then ran into a whole house hard wired Russound system that cost way too much, or yamaha and polk audio towers. The speakers in that system for each room with a controller ran more for each room than getting a play 1 or 2. It was a major butt pain running all the ethernet in walls and I vowed if I ever moved that was never happening again,
Well the move has happened and now it was time to do a new system, an easy system, and a cheaper system without compromising on sound quality.

There are ways of running your system with varous components that will get you audiophile quality with the sonos as your backbone, but that is way too much money and more effort and suffering than I care to go through.

Ok now to the meat of the Play 1. I am sitting right now in a 25 x 30 room with one Play 1 going and it sounds great, I dont care who you are you will be surprised at the sound pumping out of this little yet heavy box. For the best results in rooms this size and larger you might want to get two and pair them for stereo with the sonos app. I tried this and its easy. Ended up moving the other Play 1 into another room as I am not going to crank music to move the earth much anymore. My purpose was for constant background quality sound and if a good song came on to pump it up without issue, and not to scare wildlife.

If you are a sound snob, and you know who you are, you can find some lacking highs at high volume and a tad of missing clarity in the midrange. I dont say this to warn anyone off this speaker its just not $800.
