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.

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.
Nevertheless, I'm satisfied with the speaker, but no speaker (like any product) is perfect. You always find out you need more. For example, I have a lot of music in my OneDrive account that I uploaded after ripper music from CDs that are out of print and had not yet come out digitally. I cannot play that music straight from my OneDrive account to my PLAY:1 because it is not listed as part of the available music services in the SONOS program that you have to install on your phone, computer, etc. to use the speaker. I have no problem with the software; I just cannot access that service (and there are others like iTunes Radio). The only way to play music from this source is to download those 500 songs to the computer on which I am using the SONOS program (which then "finds" those songs and makes them available to play). It's not too bad, but I specifically put them on OneDrive to be able to play them on any device without having to download them and take up computer hard drive space.
My favorite part of the speaker is the smooth connection playback. I have not experienced any skipping, stuttering, muffled sound, or play delays yet...and no buffering between tracks. It actually plays my music better than the native app plays it.
I use this for my kitchen right now, especially when I get up in the morning and wish to listen to my NPR/State ETV radio station (through TuneIn radio...which is built in to the SONOS program; but you cannot connect your own account if you have one through TuneIn). The sound is pleasant when turned down to medium levels...and you can hear all parts of the audio whether you are right next to the speaker or someone where else.
On the whole, I like the SONOS PLAY:1. There are some things I would like to have, but they are not deal breakers since I knew what I was mostly getting when I bought it. Yes, I plan on getting a PLAY:3 (for my bedroom) and a PLAY:5 for the Great Room.
