Sonos PLAY:3. The mid-size home speaker with stereo sound.
PLAY:3 delivers richer, more robust sound than PLAY:1. Deeper bass, too. All of which makes it just right for places like bedrooms, kitchens, home offices and dining rooms.
Single Speaker Stereo: PLAY:3 plays your favorite songs in full stereo. Three Class-D amplifiers and three custom-built drivers create a full, wide sound stage so the instruments and vocals really shine.
More Powerful Bass: A rear-firing bass radiator pumps out exceptional deep lows for a speaker its size.
Trueplay Speaker Tuning: This exclusive SONOS feature fine-tunes your PLAY:3 to make sure you get the very best sound in any room, no matter where you place it.
Sounds Great In Any Position: Stand it vertically or place it on its side, PLAY:3 optimizes its sound based on your preferred orientation.
Stereo Pair With Another PLAY:3: Turn each speaker into separate left and right channels for wider, bigger and deeper stereo sound.

Top customer reviews
The setup was super easy and intuitive. When I went to install the app on my wife's phone I expected to encounter some problems but her setup was just as easy as mine. She has her own music accounts added or she can also listen to mine.
I love that Sonos is connected via WiFi, which means the Sonos system covers the entire range of my WiFi network. As long as my WiFi reaches all the rooms where I have my Sonos wireless speaker, I don't have any issues with range. Music keeps playing — without skips, delays or drops — regardless of where my phone is. I've always had problems with Bluetooth because I would walk out of range with my phone in my pocket and the music would skip or stop playing.
Also with Bluetooth, my phone notification sounds would sometimes interrupt the music but not with Sonos.
The sound coming from my Sonos is amazing. Nothing but uncompressed, crystal clear sound.
I love being able to add all of my music services. I have XM/Sirius, Spotify, and Pandora connected to the Sonos app.
I highly recommend the Sonos music system. My only concern is the price. It's a lot of money to lay out but you get what you pay for.
The Sonos wireless bridge does not use a standard wifi network, it creates its own proprietary wireless Sonos network which cannot be seen by standard wifi devices. I believe the Sonos uses some of the channels in the 2.4GHz range. I have not seen any interference issues with my existing wifi network.
You should do the initial set up from a PC or Mac, not a mobile device. I tried to do the initial set up from my ipad but when I added the app to my PC, the devices weren't recongnized and I had to reinitialize the system. To be fair, the Sonos app warned me that it is recommended to initialize the system from the pc app, so I don't consider this a problem - it was no big deal.
The design of the components is very good, not cheap or cheesy looking, and the ease of use is excellent. One's reaction is that this is the wireless music system I'd expect to see come from Apple in terms of robustness, design, and ease of use. Although my first reaction was that the system seemed to be a bit expensive, the Play 3 is not much more than a set of of higher end powered PC speakers, and when you include the Sonos functionality, my assessment changed to thinking it was actually a good value.
The system integrates easily with iTunes library and seems to support almost any media library. I've only really started to explore this aspect. Setting up music queues and playlists is trivially simple. The biggest drawback is that it is addictive - since getting the Play 3, I've added a Play Connect to my existing stereo amp and speakers. I can play to and from the Sonos system with my stereo now. This is really cool - I can play different streaming radio or music library tunes on the different Sonos devices in different rooms, or the same, or whatever the heck I want to do - all easily controlled from the Sonos app. I'm just seeing how soon before I justify another Sonos component. It's clear there is a very complex technological base for the Sonos system, both hardware and software, but that complexity is well hidden behind a simple to use interface for the user.
Sonos may not be the "cheapest" system for home music, but it is the best. I did a lot of research before purchasing and no one else nailed this application nearly as well as Sonos. It just does this, but it does it exceptionally well. Over the years, we've made a significant investment in our music library and I view the Sonos as a great way to unlock the value in this investment by making it easy for me to enjoy my library wherever I am in the house. Kudos to the Sonos team for a job well done.
