Intense, immersive sound.

  • Three speaker drivers powered by three dedicated digital amplifiers

    The PLAY:3 uses three state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with three 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. A bass radiator produces powerful low notes while two mid-range drivers and one tweeter fills out the sound.

  • Class-D amplifiers

    State of the art, great sounding amplifiers that are light-weight, powerful and very energy-efficient in standby and use.

  • Tweeter

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

  • Mid-range drivers

    Two dedicated mid-range drivers ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments.

  • Bass radiator

    A bass radiator is tuned to use the energised air volume inside of PLAY:3 to provide deep, clean and surprisingly powerful bass from such a small package.

  • Stereo Pair

    Turn two PLAY:3s into separate left and right channel speakers to create wider, bigger, and deeper sound.

  • 5.1 Home Theatre

    Add two PLAY:3 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:3 to make the music sound great, no matter where you place your speaker.

    Comments about SONOS PLAY:3:

    I have the 2 small ones and the medium one and it is the easiest and coolest way to listen to my musical platforms. I was talking to a friend about wishing there was an easy system that could take the place of my old stereo and he mentioned SONOS. This system is exactly what I had in mind plus more. A easy to use system with high quality sound that is beyond flexible and simply controlled by my phone. The set-up is a breeze and very quick and the overall system is nothing short of brilliant. Anyone reading this review look no further. Simply go online or call SONOS, review the products to match your listening needs, and order it. You will be thrilled with it. I promise!!!

          We have three Play 3 speakers. Two in home with easy access to the outside patios and one in the garage. So much nicer to hear the music we like when we we want to. The system works very well together and separately for when we each want something different. A friend had recommended the Sonos system to us after much investigation on the different systems available. So glad we made this purchase. Absolutely no buyers remorse.

            I'm a licensed electrican that has done quite a bit of wiring for audio systems. I wanted to get music onto my deck without taking the time to run wires. I figured that I'd give this a shot as a quick fix but found that it will be a permanent solution. I can't believe how quickly I was able to set everything up.
            I had music in less than ten minutes from opening the box!

                                My wife and I really the music of the 50's, 60's, and 70's. Listening to the great sound and enjoying the album art on my dedicated IPad controller is just terrific. Just brings back those memories!

                                        We have a Play 3 in the main living room and a Play 1 in another room. We plan to buy two more because we love it so much. So easy. Such good sound. The Play 3 has more base than the Play 1, but the combination is fabulous. I think we can live with the Play 1 in the rest of the house.

                                            Great sound projection which fills the livingroom of the house. Looks good and the choice of music available, radio and streaming services is plentiful. No regrets regarding purchase.

                                              Even though I love the sound of the Sonos, if I had known that it was not possible to use AirPlay with Sonos, I would not have bought it.

                                              Great sound from a great speaker. I use it in my bedroom and quick and easy to start up. My only issue is you cant play directly from spotify app (PLEASE ADD INTEGRATION WITH SPOTIFY CONNECT!) Also had issues with sonos app not finding the speaker.

                                                  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.

                                                    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.  ×
                                                  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.
