  • Versatile. Fits perfectly in tall and narrow or short and wide spaces.
  • Stereo sound. Intense and immersive, with surprisingly deep bass for a speaker its size.
  • Vertical or horizontal, the sound remains amazing.
  • Two PLAY:3s work as Sonos home theatre rear speakers.
  • Wall or stand mountable.

Play music from Spotify straight to Sonos.

At home in any room.

PLAY:3 delivers richer, more robust sound than PLAY:1. Deeper bass, too. And it can play in stereo. All of which makes it just right for places like bedrooms. Home offices. Garages. Rec rooms. Wherever you’re doing the kinds of things that deserve a great soundtrack.


Set up over Wifi.

Plug in. Connect. Stream without interruptions or interference.

Start in any room. Add on.

Play different songs in different rooms. Or the same song everywhere.

Control with one app.

Pick a room. Pick a song. Hit play.

Never obsolete.

Software updates mean the product you buy today will be even better tomorrow.


Listen in stereo.

Even if you’re not an all-out audiophile, you still deserve great sound. PLAY:3 delivers, in stereo. Three Class-D amplifiers and three custom-built drivers create a full, wide sound stage so the instruments and vocals really shine. There’s also a bass radiator to pump out the lows.

Multiple orientations.

Stand it tall or set it on its side. Either way, PLAY:3 automatically optimizes the sound. When it’s horizontal, it’s in stereo. When it's vertical, it's in mono. The rubber feet on two sides make it safe for any surface.

One app. Complete music control.

The Sonos app helps you quickly search through all your services to track down favourite music, send it to different rooms, and adjust the volume and other settings. You don’t even have to be in the same room. And if your friends have the Sonos app, they can do the same.

Check out the app.

Over 30 streaming services available.

Sonos plays everything–the most popular streaming services, on-demand services, Internet radio, your favourite podcasts and audiobooks, your go-to collection of downloads­–whatever you love to listen to.

Trueplay, custom speaker-tuning for your PLAY:3.

Sonos uses Trueplay tuning to make sure you get the very best sound out of your PLAY:3. No matter where you put it.

    Add a SUB.

    Wirelessly connect SUB to your PLAY:3 stereo pair for dramatically deeper bass. Since your PLAY:3s don't have to handle the bass anymore, they can focus on producing better mid-range and high frequencies.

Specs

Audio

Three Class-D digital amplifiers perfectly tuned to match the three dedicated speaker drivers and the acoustic architecture.

One tweeter creates a crisp and clear high-frequency response.

Two mid-woofers deliver stereo sound and ensure you’ll hear the faithful playback of mid-range vocal frequencies plus deep, rich bass.

A bass radiator provides deep, clean, and surprisingly powerful bass from such a small package.

Adjustable bass and treble controls let you customise your sound by individual room or groups of rooms.

      Comments about SONOS PLAY:3:

      Sonos is the best sound system I have owned. Albeit a bit expensive, I wouldn't look back. My dog chewed the power cord and I rang customer service. Sent one out free of charge as soon as possible. Alternatively told me options to grab in the mean time. Sounds is epic, setup simple, app easy. Couldn't not recommend more. Have suggested all me friends get them.
