Sonos Play:1 review

 

For the last few years, Sonos has been a leader in hi-fi wireless audio thanks to popular devices like its Play:3 and Play:5 wireless speakers. Using a hardwired connection from a router as a piggy back, Sonos' proprietary wireless ecosystem allows for...

Clean, smooth upper register ; Good detail and dynamic expression ; Packed to the gills in features ; Excellent wireless signal ; Solid bass response for the size

Mono speaker can lose fidelity ; Midrange a tad cloudy

The baby of the Sonos family wedges its way into a highly competitive price point, while still serving up the full Sonos wireless experience.

Sonos Play:1 (black)

 

Sonos has long been the best wireless audio solution, but recommending its pricey products always ended with a similar caveat: "if you can afford it."

The Sonos Play:1 is a stylish and exceptionally well-made wireless speaker, especially for the price. It offers the full Sonos experience, with support for most key services (including Spotify, Pandora, Rdio) and super-reliable wireless streaming....

Unlike Bluetooth speakers, the Sonos system can't stream from every app on your phone or tablet -- so there's no support for iTunes Radio, for instance. The lack of a built-in battery limits room-to-room mobility.

The Sonos Play:1 finally brings the company's wireless audio magic to the masses, in a fantastically designed compact speaker that's just $199.

Sonos PLAY:1 Review

 

Once upon a time, Sonos was a tough sell. Whole-house streaming audio had its appeal, certainly, but it was also expensive. The wireless audio market has come on strong since the first Sonos all-in-one speaker, the PLAY:5, in 2009 though, and with...

Even with a battery missing, though, we’d still lean toward Sonos for a whole-home audio system. The PLAY:1′s simplicity, performance, and blend-into-the-background convenience epitomizes why: the tech drops out of the way and leaves you to enjoy the...

Review: Sonos Play:1

 

Small but powerful addition to the Play lineup

Great sound ; Stylish build ; Easy setup ; Humidity-resistant

iOS app interface could use iOS 7 makeover ; Audio playback is limited to Sonos-supported services

Improvements in wireless technology over the years has made it increasingly easier to offer music playback in every room of the home. Involved in this music everywhere movement since 2002, Sonos has long prided itself on providing customers with audi

The Sonos PLAY:1 packs a significant punch considering its size and produces surprisingly good bass

Attractive, well constructed design ; Excellent sound quality & volume ; Ease of use and setup

Requires AC power (no battery) ; No 3.5mm audio jack ; Midrange can become muddy

The PLAY:1 is Sonos' smallest and cheapest speaker yet, and has been designed as an affordable, entry level music streaming device. It packs a significant punch considering its size and produces surprising bass levels, though we would have loved to see...

Sonos Play:1 review

 

The Sonos Play:1 is the company's most affordable speaker yet but with the rise of competition from Pure and Bose can it still remain top dog?

Can use as PlayBar surrounds ; Great design ; Affordable

It's a mono speaker ; A pair sounds better than one

As a standalone unit, the Sonos Play:1 is the cheapest way to get yourself Sonos-ed up and will undoubtedly be an attractive Christmas treat. It looks good, sounds good (although better as a pair) and will doubtlessly impress anyone that hasn't...

Sonos Play:1 review

 

Sonos, the wireless digital audio solution, offers great audio solutions for the home - but it's also been a bit of a rich man's game. Or it has been until now, as the Sonos Play:1 is a step towards changing that.

Good sound, multi-room support, easy setup, lots of options for streaming services, app for smartphone and tablet

Single unit means mono output, you'll want a smartphone or a tablet and a streaming service subscription to get the most out of it

When we reviewed the Sonos Play:3 in July 2011 we said that it sounded great, was easy to setup, and will happily sit in you kitchen or on your bedside table replacing that digital radio that doesn't do anything apart from play what's being broadcast...

Sonos goes for a fun-sized approach

Excellent sound ; Reasonably affordable ; Fits snugly almost anywhere

Quite heavy ; Living rooms will want two ; Sonos app can feel limiting
