“Sonos as a system has two big things going for it – breadth of choice and simplicity of use” What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017

The Sonos system
The Sonos wireless sound system is simply one of the best sounding, most reliable and highly flexible there is. With the latest Sonos components you don't even require a BRIDGE or BOOST, as they are capable of linking via your home Wi-Fi system. For the very best results, though, linking one component to an Ethernet connection will allow you to take advantage of the famous Sonos 'Mesh' system. The more components you add, the stronger this dedicated wireless mesh becomes. Best of all, because it runs independently from your Wi-Fi, the reliability and strength of the signal is unaffected by Wi-Fi dropouts.

Sonos control
Controlling your Sonos system couldn't be easier. Simply download dedicated apps for your smartphone or tablet - both Apple iOS and Android are catered for - and you're good to go. You can either stream music stored on your device, from a local network share or take advantage of music streaming services such as Spotify...

Music services available on Sonos
Add your existing music streaming service or discover something new. Whether curated or on-demand, free or subscription-based, Sonos has you covered with access to a growing list of over 30 music services. For example, you can enjoy Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, Google Play Music or many more paid services or SoundCloud, TuneIn Radio or 22Tracks free services.

The Sonos sound
Sonos have a reputation for above average sound quality and the Play:3 is no different. By using a dedicated tweeter and twin woofer units, each with their own amplifier, sound quality is superb. Furthermore, a bass radiator adds significant bass depth over and above the Play:1. The active design gives a punchy, dynamic sound with excellent detail and control.

The TRUEPLAY revolution - giving you tailored sound
The Sonos PLAY:3 now features revolutionary TRUEPLAY technology. TRUEPLAY scans your room, analyses the results and then fine tunes the speaker for the ideal listening experience. Whether your room is large or small and the unit is placed close to a wall or in the centre, the PLAY:3 adapts to give the most natural and realistic sound possible.

Sonos flexibility

Think of a scenario and the Play:3 fits. At its most simple level, it's ideal as a music zone in a small or medium sized room. Alternatively, use two as a quality hi-fi speaker pair. Add more bass with a Sonos SUB or go the whole way and use them as satellite speakers within a Sonos 5.1 home cinema system. Whatever you decide to do, the user friendly Sonos app guides you through the set-up procedure.

Built to last
With robust build quality, the Play:3 is not only built to last but also ideal for use in rooms with wide temperature changes - such as conservatories. The solid construction with no vinyl wrap or wood veneers to peel or distort will still look good in years to come. As usual, there's a Play:3 White and Play:3 Black so that finding one to suit your decor is easy. As a further bonus, the Play:3 can be used vertically or horizontally.

For all that's great about Sonos, within a compact speaker, the Play:3 is a welcome addition to the family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound. Look good. Good price @ Richer sounds. Pleased that I bought them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound Researched several options on line and then visited Richer sounds to actually hear the system live. Completely satisfied with the system which was easy to set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Bought as next step from play 1, good sound quality for it size

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of kit! I have bought the Sonos 3 for my son for Christmas, however I did this because I have one myself and my son has said how jealous he is! It is simple to set up and I use an iPad and iPhone to control it. Streaming my music is easy and the sound quality, even at full volume is excellent. It isn’t the most powerful speaker on the market but is more than powerful enough for most rooms. Being able to add speakers to the system is a bonus. Taking time to use the built in sound/room setup is worthwhile as it is a notably better sound. In summary an excellent piece of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use We bought this in Summer to provide music for a couple of barbecues. It was super easy to set up and it bangs out decent sound. We mostly use it for Spotify but I put radio through it too. It's never once dropped out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speaker Present for my daughter, she loves it, using it to stream music. Great sound, small compact size. Not cheap but that's because it is so good. 5th Sonos speaker i have bought - all as good as the day i got them. Excellent service as always from Richer Sounds at Prestwich.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good and sounds great! We bought the Sonos 3 to replace an old Hifi system. It was very easy to set up, it has great quality sound too. The only hitch was connecting to our music library but that is now resolved.
