Sonos Play:1

 

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.

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

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

The Play:1 is the most affordable Sonos speaker yet, and a strong performer despite its weak bass. At $200 it's one of the simplest and most affordable ways to start a comprehensive multi-room audio system, especially since the update that lets you set...

Sonos Play:1 review

 

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/AU$299.

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...

For existing Sonos users, the PLAY:1 is a no-brainer. Affordable enough to slot easily into an existing zone that needs a little extra oomph, and yet capable enough to keep up the company’s reputation for audiophile-friendly quality, it’s equally at...

The Best Multiroom Wireless Speaker System

 

We've spent hundreds of hours over several years testing multiroom wireless speaker systems and Sonos remains the best option for most homes.

Sonos’s New PLAY:1 Tone Limited Edition: None More Black (or White)

 

Orders begin today for Sonos's latest addition to its line-up, the Limited Edition PLAY:1 Tone. Coming in full, murdered-out black or pristine white, these new skin variations on the PLAY:1 make a visual statement. Depending upon your color and...

The Tone's looks don't just stop at the speaker, it's an entirely visual experience starting with the packaging. The one I received to review was black. ALL black. None More Black. So much so that these photos simply needed to be lightened a bit in...

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!
