“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 Superb Sound A great way to start the New Year off, adding a Sonos Play 3 to the house. The Play 3 delivers a superb sound, creating brightness & warmth to whatever genre you desire. And whatever levels you choose its clarity is just so clear. You will not be disappointed. PS. the "better half' loves it.... enough said.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed. Don't get me wrong, I am pleased overall with the Play 3, but it seems to me that the Play 3 is no better than the play 1. I bought 2 play 1s and was very pleased with both the speakers and the Sonos system, which is amazing. I bought the Play 3 to go in a larger area, but to me the sound is rather thin. In my view, the extra for the Play 3 is not worth paying, but then my ears are 65 years old and not what they used to be. My advice if you are considering the purchase of either of these speakers, is to pay the extra and buy a pair of Play 1s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Sound Easy to set up, great sound and met every expectation we had. The set-up process can be a little tricky but its worth it after you get the system tuned for the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, Easy to use My first wireless speaker (since a very crude home made FM radio transmitter solution a while ago). Sound is unbelievable for such a small unit. App is good - I can search all of my music services in one place. The only thing that I can’t seem to do is get it to work with Siri on my iPhone (but that might just be user error!) Looking forward to adding a Play:1 for the kitchen. Highly recommended...!!
