"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 293.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos Play 1 Perfect addition to our Sonos network. Extending effortlessly into the back of the house. Setup achieved in minutes, including unpacking it from the box and tidying up. 5* all the way for these wonderful speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Sonos Great service from Richer Sounds Liverpool. Diego, the manager, was really helpful and took time to explain how the Sonos system worked. Set up was really easy and the sound from such small Sonos 1 speakers is really impressive. So impressed with the 2 speakers that we will extend the system to cover the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST BUY!!! Took advantage of the 100 day return offer from Sonos. Wasn't sure if we'd use it that much. Well how wrong could we have been!! So simple to set up, easy to use, and with all the music from our music library, 100's of radio station, plus the music from our Amazon prime, we've discovered music we'd forgotten about, and all sorts of new stuff. The sound coming out of the little box of pleasure is absolutely stunning. Just need now to save up to add another to our home.... Don't think there's a snow ball's chance that this little gem is going back in 94 days!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product which is expected for the price Great product but you would expect that for the price of it. There are cheaper alternatives however, this is a fine piece of easy to use technology.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not connect to my wifi I have not been able to connect this to my wifi and I have 2 networks available. Sounds good enough when connected by ethernet cable but that's not where I want to locate it. Have tried a booster plug but that didn't help and I refuse to pay an additional £90 for a Sonos booster. Songs have been useless so it's being returned, I'm afraid. I'll get a bluetooth speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good for 5.1 as part of the 5.1 setup these play 1's are great. We have a large living room (6m x 5m) with the TV in a corner. The play 1's are powerful enough to assist with filling that room, together with the Playbar and Sub. On their own they're a bit light for my taste, but for 5.1, they're exactly what you need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sono Play:1 speaker - best wireless system available I'm very happy with my new Sonos speakers. I bought two of these together a week ago. I already owned a Sonos Playbar that I use with my TV. Setting up the speakers was very easy. Having set up the Playbar already via the Sonos app I was familiar with the process which is very well designed. I've used these speaker both separately (independently - One upstairs, one downstairs) and also in the surround sound configuration in conjunction with the Playbar (Back Left and Right). The sound from these speakers is fantastic. Are they cheap?.... nope. Are they worth it.... Yup.
