Sonos is the wireless Home Sound System that fills your entire home with great-sounding music. Use one app to stream different music to Sonos speakers in different rooms. Or send one song all through the house.
Contents: PLAY:1, power cord, Ethernet cable, Quick Start Guide, and Legal/Warranty information.
Sonos PLAY:1. Mini speaker. Mighty sound.
The most compact Sonos speaker. A perfect fit for bookshelves, counters, and other snug places. PLAY:1 lets you enjoy great-sounding music wherever you want to listen.
Surprisingly Powerful: PLAY:1 sounds a lot bigger than it looks, thanks to two Class-D amplifiers and custom-built drivers, all meticulously tuned to the speaker’s unique acoustic architecture.
Trueplay Speaker Tuning: This exclusive Sonos feature fine-tunes your PLAY:1 to make sure you get the very best sound in any room, no matter where you place it.
Humidity Resistant: Enjoy your favorite songs in music-starved places like bathrooms and outdoor patios.
Stereo Pair With Another PLAY:1: Turn each speaker into separate left and right channels for wider, bigger and deeper stereo sound.
Home Theater Rears: Add a pair or PLAY:1 speakers to PLAYBAR and SUB for an epic surround sound experience.
Simple setup. Better over time.
Put your speaker wherever you want. Plug it in. Tap the free Sonos app – it connects to your home WiFi and you’re ready to rock.
Regular, ongoing software updates bring new features and services to your PLAY:1. So the longer you own it, the better it gets.
WiFi, not Bluetooth
With Sonos, the songs stream from your WiFi network (not your phone), so there's never any of the dropouts, delays or interruptions associated with Bluetooth.
One room of streaming music is great. But a house full is even better. Fill more rooms with music by simply adding more Sonos speakers. They all work together seamlessly so you can play different songs in different rooms or the same song everywhere.

Top customer reviews
So, I install the system on a newer LED tv that has a 5.1 pass through on the optical port and bam! I fall in love with THE SOUND. I get it. I'm not trying to compete with an audiophilic, perfect system nor do I care about specs as much as I do about liking what I hear. And the bottom line is that I really like what I hear. I get the full 5.1 out of the system and the Play 1s sound fantastic as the rear pair of the surround sound set up. They really do sound good. The playbar is a great anchor for the TV when it comes to dialogue and as it acts as a front pair and center speaker for the whole system during movies and music. I apologize to all of the purists out there, but I love the Sonos system.
Setup is just too stinking easy. Wow.
And the streaming piece that meant nothing to me.........well, I played around with Spotify Premiere and what can I tell you? I can watch a boring football game while hoping for something spectacular to occur and instantly switch to listening to any of my 35 kabillion songs while keeping the game on. If something groovy happens on the tube, I just switch the sound back to the TV. There is zero lag between the TV and the system or between any of the separate speakers. outstanding synch. And with version 7.0 of the Sonos app I can stream from the Spotify app instead of having to use the Sonos app. Sweet.
Why only four stars then? As mentioned at the start of this diatribe, Sonos needs to get off their elitist butts and add HDMI connectivity and support for DTS. It is a tough decision to spring this kind of scratch for a system that could be phenomenal "if only....". After reading through countless forum threads about the issue, it almost seems as if the Sonos team takes a certain pride in telling their paying faithful to shut up and colors they decide are in our best interest. Not cool.
All in all it's hard to criticize the Sonos Play 1 as I have it set up in conjunction with the playbar and the sub. But it's expensive and technologically crippled for no apparent reason. I would recommend it if you can afford it, you aren't looking for audiophile ego strokes, you want to scrap the wires, and if you have a TV that passes the full 5.1 through the optical port.
Potential buyers should understand that this is NOT a Bluetooth speaker but rather connects to your home network, either wirelessly or via the included Ethernet cable. This means that your phone doesn't have to be 33 feet (or whatever) from your speaker. As long as the WiFi signal is strong enough, your Sonos can play anywhere in the house. This also means that if you have a wonky network that fades in and out or an older router not good at handling traffic, you can have issues. Wireless over network is a lot between than Bluetooth, unless your network is crummy.
You do need a smart phone running iOS or Android to set up and control the speaker and any other Sonos players you plan to add to create a system. Although I haven't done it yet, you can connect two PLAY:1s to create stereo sound, but you can also run only one speaker. The only wires are the power cable -- unless you opt to connect it directly to your router.
The build quality is excellent. The canister-sized speaker is heavy and made of mostly metal. The iOS app is intuitive and helpful. Other than the sound in need of a little bass, I can't think of anything to complain about.
