        Comments about SONOS PLAY:1:

        Trying to write a review with Guns n Roses blasting out throughout the house is problematic as I type in rhythm to the awesomeness of the sound. The system is simple to use, I find the 4 Sonos 1's ample to fill my home (200 sq. m.) with rich sound.

        The app itself has under gone a number of updates and the latest iteration is by far the best. Easy to use. Nevertheless, the most important element to remember is your wifi signal and strength, if it is weak your system will struggle.

        Crux to your enjoyment of the system will be built on how stable your wifi network is in your home. I have two separate wifi systems: one for the domestic systems: security, fire/CO protection and heating and one for entertainment TVs, Sonos and home/office computing.

        I use the BTHub6 for the Sonos system. It works flawlessly with fibre direct to premise this gives me a download speed of 74 Mbps.

        Very happy. It delivers. Well done.

          Comments about SONOS PLAY:1:

          Love how responsive this is. Good sound quality.
          Only down side is that I would love it if it could be played without plugging into the mains. I have a Bose and I love that I can play it anywhere without a power source.

            We have two currently, on in the kitchen and the other in the bedroom.
            Looking forward to seeing additional units once funds allow.
