Sonos PLAY:1 wireless speaker

 

The Sonos PLAY:1 packs a significant punch considering its size and produces surprisingly good bass

Attractive, well constructed design ; Excellent sound quality & volume ; Ease of use and setup

Requires AC power (no battery) ; No 3.5mm audio jack ; Midrange can become muddy

The PLAY:1 is Sonos' smallest and cheapest speaker yet, and has been designed as an affordable, entry level music streaming device. It packs a significant punch considering its size and produces surprising bass levels, though we would have loved to see...

Sonos Play:1 Review: A Fun-Size Box Of Wireless Audio Awesome

 

Sonos makes some of our favourite wireless music products of all time. The problem has always been the price of entry — and that's where Play:1 comes in. Meet your entry-level Sonos.

Most likely, yes. Honestly, I think the system really isn’t totally complete on its own in a living room without a stereo pair, which brings up the regular price of a new system to $US450, which is quite pricey. That said, I am also a humongous nerd,...

Great Sound For Entry Level SONOS

 

These little speakers sound amazing for the size. You can tell by the weight they're quality. But better than the sound, is the SONOS brand. The system itself is bullet proof. My network spans 7 zones across a 500sqm home and everything works perfectly...
