Sonos Play:1

 

Incredibly easy to set up. Affordable. Smooth-sounding midrange and high end.

Bass distorts at maximum volume. Not portable. No wired audio inputs.

The Sonos Play:1 is the most affordable, functional wireless multi-room speaker we've seen yet, and Sonos' legacy makes it a breeze to set up.

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...

Sonos PLAY:1 Wireless Streaming Music Speaker Review

 

Tiny footprint, big sound, Easy to pair with a second PLAY:1 for stereo sound, Sonos Controller mobile app keeps getting better

Looks weatherproof, but it isn't, Wish list: rechargeable battery for easier outdoor use, Black and white are a good start. More colors please!
