Pros: Setup is incredibly easy, sounds great, easily controlled from any device, can be grouped with other speakers to create zones or whole home listening
Cons: No auxiliary input jack, cannot be used to output sound from other sources on your device (i.e. video sound from your iPhone's video player)
I've been interested in getting a SONOS speaker but I haven't wanted to put down $299 for their base speaker the SONOS PLAY:3 or $399 for their top model the SONOS PLAY:5. It's amazing what $100 will do to your purchasing decisions, because at $199, their latest speaker was worth a try.
When I wasn't prepared to buy a SONOS PLAY:3 for $299, I went with a Philips AD7000W wireless Airplay speaker for $150 (now $99.98 through Amazon). I went with the Philips for a few reasons. First, it was half the price and did virtually the same thing. Secondly, the Philips has an auxiliary input jack. Lastly, I have an iPhone, iPad and MacBook Pro so having an Airplay device appealed to me. And while I think the Philips is a great speaker, overall I am happier with the SONOS PLAY:1.
To start with, I'm not an audiophile at all so when I say the speaker sounds great, that's coming from the ears of an average person who isn't extremely picky about the audio source I listen to. I can tell the difference between extremely expensive speakers and cheap ones, but the stuff in the middle isn't as easily distinguishable to me. Keeping that in mind, I think both speakers sound great and can easily fill any room in my house with quality tunes. The Philips does have more bass to it but the SONOS PLAY:1 does well in this area too.Read more ›
When these came out last week, I got a single P:1 "For the kitchen and so we can stop lugging around the bulky P5.". It sounded great. So good actually, that my wife told me to order another one for our master bedroom. When it arrived I paired them to see if that made a real difference. Wow. Equal if not better than the C:Amp/Speaker combo (which ran $750) and much better than the single P:5. So then she insisted we buy another PAIR for the master bedroom. Suggestions of buying more 'gadgets' are a very rare occurrence in this household, I assure you... I think they have a winner on their hands.
They are a little lighter on the bass than the P5. I can hear the difference between a single play:5 and and a single play:1, but as a pair they beat the former by a mile. Like other reviewers, I agree that a line-in would have been awesome to have so I could ditch my PC speakers, but I actually read the description before getting them, so deducting stars for that is nonsensical. It does what it claims to do, and it does it very well. If you need line-in, get a P:5 (though then you'll miss out on awesome stereo) or add a Sonos Connect (not cheap at $349).
Tip: These are humidity resistant (other Sonos speakers are not) and fit perfectly well inside a gallon-sized ziploc bag, so on a day with a slight chance of rain you can just zip em up with some silica gel packs tossed in for good measure and take them outside for a BBQ.
PS any tips on how to convince my wife that we desperately need a Sonos Sub are welcome. Perhaps I should just grow a pair...
Look/Feel: The PLAY:1 form factor is solid and the unit feels very well built. It is quite heavy at just over 4-lbs. It has a smooth rounded edge design that takes up about half the space of a PLAY:3. It can only be used in the vertical position where is stands roughly 6.5" tall. I've added a couple photos under "Customer Images" of the PLAY:1 and PLAY:3 side-by-side for reference. You can see in the photos how compact and sleek it is in comparison.
Connections: Power connects at the bottom with a nice recessed cord and an Ethernet port in positioned in the back--required if you do not have the wireless Sonos BRIDGE. A flat Ethernet cable is also included.
Easy Setup: I already have a wireless BRIDGE installed so setup was very simple. Choose "Add a Sonos Component" from the Manage tab in the software. Press the "+" and "Play/Pause" buttons simultaneously on the top of the PLAY:1 and the speaker will be recognized by the software/system. Pick a new room or add it to an existing one and you are ready to rock.
Solid Results: The PLAY:1 delivers full, powerful sound that is surprisingly "larger" than you would expect from such a compact form factor. It produces sound that fills the room while staying clean and very detailed at all volume levels. I'm seriously impressed with the output.Read more ›
