        Comments about SONOS PLAY:1:

        I purchased 2 SONOS Play:1 speakers to start building a multi-room WiFi sound system for my house and found the setup to be quick and very simple. The speakers look fantastic and it is very easy to adjust sound levels or sources in different rooms.

        Listening to a very broad range of music most of the day, every day, I find the speakers produce a lovely crisp and warm sound with a lot of punch for their size, this is based on my previous listening, mostly on an enthusiast-level computer system, using higher fidelity speakers or Sennheiser headphones.

        Since using the system I have started listening to a lot of Internet radio stations as the app integration with a multitude of Internet music systems is fantastic. I also stream music from my computer system, which a non-techie will need to follow a short guide to setup, as well as playing music directly from my phone, all of which works fantastically.

        My only minor complaints would be that I experience some tracks skipping part way through on OGG Vorbis format audio files and it is annoying that the TruePlay app is not at least certified for use on some of the higher-end Android phones, being restricted to Apple devices only. It would also be great to be able to play music from Youtube videos, as I listen to a lot of music this way.

        Overall I cannot recommend enough and look forward to adding some deep bass with a Play:5 or SUB and another 1 or 2 of these speakers to really saturate my house in music!

          Easy setup. Took me more time to unwrap the speakers than the time to connect it up to network. I have used 2 for a semi outdoor patio area. Plenty of sound for all occasions.
