Deep, crystal clear sound.

  • Two speaker drivers powered by two dedicated digital amplifiers

    The PLAY:1 uses two state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with two speaker drivers to deliver great sound to any room. The wireless music system provides pure, clean sound that is perfect for bringing room filling music to a kitchen, bedroom, office, or just about any room in your home.

  • Class-D amplifiers

    Two Class-D digital amplifiers perfectly tuned to match the speakers and acoustic architecture.

  • Tweeter

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

  • Mid-Woofer

    One mid-woofer ensures the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments, while also delivering a deep, rich bass.

  • Stereo Pair

    Turn two PLAY:1s into separate left and right channel speakers to create wider, bigger, and deeper sound.

  • 5.1 Home Theatre

    Add two PLAY:1 speakers to PLAYBAR and SUB for a true surround sound experience.

  • All-digital sound architecture

    All filter settings, active equalisation, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry so there's absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.

  • Adjustable bass and treble controls

    Optimise sound performance using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms

  • Trueplay tuning.

    Trueplay measures the acoustics in any room – analyzing things like size, layout and furnishings. Then fine-tunes your PLAY:1 to make the music sound great, no matter where you place your speaker.

        This speaker is the best present I have ever had, got the Amp and connected it all up which was quite straightforward. Now I can my my speaker from room to room and enjoy the radio/internet radio, turntable or Cd wherever I am. Sound is great too. So now I want another speaker then I can leave one upstairs. Very happy

        I have two PLAY 1 speakers set up, one in the lounge and one in the kitchen. Great to access music on either space, or to link to play music throughout the ground floor. Great sound, really easy to set up however the music library needs to be accessed so my laptop spends much longer on that it did before!

                    Use it in three rooms in the house but just decided I need a Play 3 for one of the rooms but that's no hardship I have another place for the current speaker.
                    Easy to set up and easier when adding more speakers.
                    Like the power plug under the speaker but cordless ones would be even better but don't know how practical that would be re battery life

                            Great for high quality listening and background music. Rich and deep warm sounding speakers which can be turned up loud when you're in the mood!

                                This is a great speaker for a smaller space. Also works well in high humidity, like bathrooms. I have found the Play1 to be a great fill or background speaker. I have pairs in both my bathrooms and there is nothing better than the sound of music while showering or getting ready for my day.

                                Very discrete but very powerfull. Only lacks a "play whatever I can hear"-function in the controller so it can be used as desktop or tablet speakers...

                                  Perfect for everything. I love music and adore the flexibility of Sonos in different area of the house, control by smart phone is amazing.

                                  Can't believe it took so long to discover it and am now an addict. I have to restrain myself from gratuitous sonos buying!

                                    We use this as a radio and alarm in the bedroom. We had one on holiday in a rented house and were very taken with it and bought one on our return. I loved the set up using my iphone microphone to set the sound up for the room. Really pleased with it

                                          Used every day all day. Use as radio (Dab radio gone to the Dab graveyard)
                                          Took it on holiday to Spain. (Friends we went with, so impressed they went out and purchased one.
                                          Sound is just amazing, compact and neat!

                                          The only slight issue I have is, it seems so complicated when you take it somewhere with you to get it logged into a different Wifi network, and then when you get home,back onto your own.

                                              Was ready to bring it back to the store - but when I found out it created its own connection to the WiFi and that the iPhone/MacBook/iPad was only the controller - I was very much satisfied!

                                                Questions?

                                                1. Do I need a BOOST?

                                                  Use a BOOST if you’re worried about your home WiFi performance.

                                                  Connecting a Sonos unit to your router with an Ethernet cable automatically creates a dedicated Sonos wireless network. Any player or a BOOST can make this hard-wired connection. A dedicated Sonos network is ideal when your WiFi isn’t reliable in your home.

                                                2. Where does the music come from?

                                                  The music on Sonos comes from your favourite music streaming services, your personal music library and Internet radio stations from around the world. Access all your music within the Main Menu of the Sonos App.

                                                3. Do you make an outdoor speaker?

                                                  No, but they're all light and portable. As long as there's an outlet, you've got Sonos. The speaker units that we sell, the PLAY:1, PLAY:3 and PLAY:5, are not weather-rated. They can certainly be moved outside, but they are not designed to live outside unless they are in a covered space. If you are looking for a permanent outdoor zone of music, you can use our CONNECT:AMP unit with traditional weather-rated speakers.

                                                4. Will Sonos work with my existing equipment?

                                                  Already have a Stereo? Use the CONNECT.

                                                  The CONNECT is designed specifically to integrate with an external amplifier/receiver, and bring Sonos functionality to a third party system. Once you have a CONNECT hooked up to your stereo system, you can stream digital music and control the music selection and volume from the Sonos app.

                                                  Have a pair of speakers? The CONNECT:AMP is all you need.

                                                  If you have existing wired speakers that are not currently driven by amplifier, you can use a CONNECT:AMP to bring Sonos functionality to your speakers. Once you wire your speakers to a CONNECT:AMP, you can stream digital music and control the music selection and volume from the Sonos app.

                                                5. Can I connect Sonos to my TV?

                                                  PLAYBAR is the only soundbar that delivers outstanding Hi-Fi Sound for your TV and is a complete Wireless HiFi System that plays all the music on earth. It is simple to set-up, control and expand throughout your home. With only an optical cable connecting PLAYBAR to your TV, you can control it with your regular TV remote or with the free Sonos apps on iOS, Android, Mac and PC.

                                                  PLAYBAR is the core piece in a Sonos home theatre solution. If you want dramatically deeper bass, you can add our wireless SUB. If you're looking for surround sound, you can use two PLAY:1s or two PLAY:3s as wireless rear surrounds.

                                                6. Can I connect more than 2 speakers to the CONNECT:AMP?

                                                  The CONNECT:AMP is designed for a single pair of speakers - it is a stereo amplifier, right and left channel. However, if your speakers are rated at 8 ohms, you can wire up to 2 pairs, or 4 speakers, to one CONNECT:AMP - you just won’t have independent control between those two pairs of speakers, in terms of volume and music selection.  Γ—
                                                7. Can I use two PLAY speakers as a stereo pair?

                                                  The PLAY:1, PLAY:3 AND PLAY:5 can easily be setup as a stereo pair, using the controller app. If you are looking for more distinction between the left and right channels, you can use any two matching Sonos speakers in a stereo pair. Creating a stereo pair is a simple software toggle which turns one speaker into a dedicated left and the other into a dedicated right. Stereo pairing creates a wider stereo experience to help you hear every instrument and vocal more discretely, and fill a room more evenly with sound.

                                                8. Which speaker is right for my room?

                                                  All of our speakers sound great in any room; which speaker is best for your particular room depends on your desired room experience. For many, the PLAY:1 will provide an incredible music experience with deep bass and plenty of power. Consider upgrading to a PLAY:3 or PLAY:5, or to a stereo pair of speakers if you:

                                                  • Want deeper bass
                                                  • Want more power
                                                  • Have the space to set up two players in stereo pair mode

                                                9. How do I choose between a PLAY:5 and a stereo pair of PLAY:1s?

                                                  While both options deliver an incredible music experience, each has its unique benefits. The differences:

                                                  • Choose PLAY:5 for maximum power and the deepest bass.
                                                  • Choose a stereo pair of PLAY:1s to create a wider sound stage, allowing every vocal and instrument to be heard more discretely.
