"If your music collection is largely CD-quality tracks and below, or you're a serial Spotify user, then Sonos is a great multi-room ecosystem." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2015

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:1 is no different. By using a dedicated tweeter and 3.5" woofer unit, each with their own amplifier, sound quality is excellent. The two-way, active design gives a punchy, dynamic sound with excellent detail and control

The TRUEPLAY revolution - giving you tailored sound
The Sonos PLAY:1 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:1 adapts to give the most natural and realistic sound possible.

Sonos flexibility

Think of a scenario and the Play:1 fits. At its most simple level, it's ideal as a music zone in a small 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:1 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:1 White and Play:1 Black so that finding one to suit your decor is easy.

For all that's great about Sonos, within a cute and compact speaker, the Play:1 is a welcome addition to the family.

SONOS PLAY:1 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 284.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pefect Perfect for a flat, big enough sound for what we need. Easy to set up and install. Want to get one for each room now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install and use Thought it was going to be difficult to set up, I was so wrong wifi setup went so easy, would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant revolution! Sonos has revolutionised our music listening in the way iTunes did a decade or so ago - the flexibility and ease of expansion of a Sonos estate means decent quality sound wherever you want it. The Play:1s are really unobtrusive yet pack more punch than their size would lead you to imagine, so you can stick one out of the way in a corner of a small room, create stereo pairs, etc - up to you. Plays all your music from network storage, computers, web streams, web radio stations, etc and it even has an alarms function. The phone app is really good too; loads of functionality yet easy to use and intuitive. The second best product ever to come out of Santa Barbara, I wish I'd bought into Sonos years ago. Why didn't I? Well... At nearly £200 per small speaker, it's not exactly cheap, particularly if you're wanting to fill several rooms even with single speakers, never mind creating stereo pairs in places. Overall, though, recommended if you can afford it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for its size, quick and easy set up Great piece of kit that has impressive sound for its size and was very easy to set up wirelessly using the iPhone app. Works with Spotify seamlessly. It's a shame there is no other connectivity (line in/out or Bluetooth) but the wifi set up does work very well. I now want more!!
Date published: 2017-05-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a smaller space OK the quality isn't up to the Play 3 but at relatively lower volumes and in a smaller space it does the job very well. I am delighted with it and the advice from Richer Sounds that led me to it.
Date published: 2017-04-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not cheap but worth it easy to set up and use I have Bluetooth speakers that are ok and have been thinking about Sonos for a while but at nearly £400 for 2 speakers did I really need them the answer is YES as they work through your wifi I get my phone back when playing music so easy to set up sounds great control at your fingers tips I can use them separately one up stairs and one down stairs or can put them in the same room and use as stereo now conserdering sonos play and would be able to add these to the rear for a full surround sound so if you are like me and thinking about it don't put it off any longer bite the bullet and enjoy your new listening experience

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Sonos experience First jump on the wireless speaker system having read up plumped for Sonos, so far so good. Simple to set up and once favorites and settings setup all iOS devices picked up the settings without having to repeat for each device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product You can't really beat a sonos system I first bought the sound bar as I wanted a quality surround sound but couldn't afford to buy a £2000 surround sound system but with sonos you can buy one speaker as and when you can afford it and build it up but with sonos you can also add to other rooms too which is amazing love it
