“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: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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but mighty!! I am so positively surprised by performance! it is so small, easy to install but plays really good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surpassed my expectations I bought two of these, one for the lounge and one for the kitchen. These little speakers sound absolutely superb. They're weighty, well built, compact and punch way above what I thought they would. I was so impressed that I went out a few days later to buy a 3rd speaker, now in the bedroom. I made the mistake (a good mistake) of pairing two up to try them as a stereo pair. Set up like this they sound incredible. I'm now chomping at the bit to buy more and at some point hope to get the 5.1 set up for the lounge. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but perfectly formed Very well made, looks good, sound quality is excellent for such a small unit, and the convenience of streaming means we enjoy a lot more music than before purchase. Richer Sounds VIP club extended guarantee and keen price makes it the best place to buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound from a small unit. I have Play 5s and Play 1s in pairs. I think a pair of 1s represent great value and offers excellent sound in all but the largest rooms. I do wish that Sonos offered a bluetooth facility. I have no interest in streaming only listening to my music library and I have had a lot of networking issues. Though Sonos technical help is very good. I have Bowers and Wilkins bluetooth speakers that run on rechargeable batteries. The simplicity of not needing to be connected to mains power and the total reliability of bluetooth are wonderful attributes that I wish Sonos offered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit! Bought the sonos 1 a few weeks ago. The depth of sound is superb and there is no distortion if you decide to crank it up a bit.
