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 Fantastic sound I purchased this speaker last month - I already have various other Sonos speakers and I have to say they are brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality! Even though there’s a new model (with the Big-Brother Alexa spying device) i was very impressed with this older version. Top quality and crystal clear sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos play 1 This is the 2nd play 1 I have bought from the same shop and it's always good to go into the Plymouth store they are friendly and the staff are full of knowledge. I showed a friend of mine the speaker AND immediately we raced to the store to purchase one for him. My wife was well chuffed with her suprise present.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Sonos to add to my collection Another Sonos PLAY1 to add to my collection - one in each room now! Excellent service from Richer Sounds as ever - but same price as internet without delivery hassles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatility At It's Best! These speakers are superb! We have used them to provide music for different people in different rooms but all playing from the same network......brilliant! For the size of them, the sound they produce is also great. All in all, we're very happy with them :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, however.... Been pondering on buying the PLAY:1 for many months now and comparing this to other wireless/Bluetooth speakers of equal size or even larger, the PLAY:1 doesn't disappoint. The cabinet is adequately weighty to justify its bass response but portable enough to take it between rooms. Fair enough it requires corded power but I'm sure a truly portable version is on the Sonos horizon (a docking station for power would be a great feature upgrade). The app is intuitive and easy to use but if I am to be slightly critical it would be regarding a slight lack of features. Not everyone uses paid for subscription streaming services for their collation of music so maybe an aux in or Bluetooth would suffice (probably the most requested features). And lastly, bass and treble controls should be available from the app home page. This current feature, although available, is not in the most obvious place. Maybe Sonos coders could issue this in the next firmware update if it's not too much trouble...haha). Regardless, I'm extremely happy with my purchase. Looking to eventually add further components for home theater setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Christmas Tunes (and other ear worms) We decided to try multi room streaming and so although we have started small we chose to use the best speaker around and so it had to be a Sonos. Sound is clear and fills the room and the auto sound tune up provides a perfect balanced tonal range. I did have some trouble connecting to the house wi-fi, but that is due to my router and not the Sonos. Once I connected it to the router the issues have ceased. We are now saving for another Sonos Play 1 for the kitchen and a perhaps a play bar for the TV. Cannot recommend Sonos products highly enough.
