“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 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound, fills the room and looks good. I bought this a few weeks ago, staff in the Chester shop were really friendly and let me play out a number of speakers before i chose this one. The sound quality is excellent and also the connectivity from room to room is great. I would 100% recommend this to any family. My kids love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, Easy to use App We had been looking at several of the multiroom sound systems over the last 12 months, and after speaking with the salesman (Tom, I think?) at the Hanley branch we purchased the Play 3 and the Play 1. The system was so easy to set up, all that I needed to do was enter my wifi password on the app on the Play 3 setup, and that was it! plugged the play 1 in and the app found that and automatically joined it to the network. We then added spotify to the app to complete the setup. Sound is amazing from both the Play 3 and the Play 1, you can play different music/radio stations etc at the same time, and have the app on loads of different devices ( 5 mobiles and an Ipad in our case!) The app is seamless and has not crashed once. I will be purchasing another 2 play 1's soon, they are such an impressive little speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I already had a play 1 and play 5 which are very good but, needed to compare a play 3 with play1 for my conservatory. Dan in the Reading branch was so helpful, switching from one to the other that it made my decision to go with the play3, this is now in the conservatory and the play1 in the kitchen. Great result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos Play: 3 Well after a lot of thought I bought a pair of Play:3 speakers and set them up as a stereo pair in my large kitchen. Really glad I did, the sound clarity and volume is amazing. So easy to set up too and the app works on my Android and my wife's IOS. Plug them into the wall and follow the on screen prompts on the mobile device. Within 5 minutes you can play your music collection or internet radio stations...The delivery arrived from Richer Sounds earlier than the 3 days quoted, in fact it was next day, so another bonus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Believe the hype! Bought 2x Sonos Play 3’s a fortnight ago. I have friends who have had Sonos systems for years but it wasn’t something I’d considered. To be honest I find the design bland but after looking at several wireless speakers I decided to look into Sonos. I wanted something with some volume & so plumped for the Play 3’s with them being so keenly priced I bought 2 & use them together for true stereo. The set up is very easy & the sound is superb. The Sonos app is good & but I’m still getting used to it. Ok they won’t win any design prize but I can forgive them for that. What’s more-my wife approves. Service from Richer Sounds, Kingston was excellent & they also come with a 6 year warranty. Have you some of that John L***s!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to set up! Bought this for birthday present. No one in the family is very technologically minded but setting the system up was very simple with clear step-by-step instructions. We've all fallen in love with music again. Cannot wait to get another one for other parts of the house!
