    Comments about SONOS PLAY:1:

    I've always been a Bose fan but have become increasingly frustrated with their constant model changes and connectivity issues. Sonos are on a different level! Strong, crisp sound and a great looking speaker. Sonos have a design classic and invests in the audio experience rather than constant model changes. Software upgrades and the Sonos app are slick and easy to use! Overall a great experience and will be buying more!

        Amazing, value for money product.

        The Sonos app running through my IPHONE is a pleasure to use, as a mid 40's guy who has always bought CD's, moving to Apple Music and Sonos has been a revelation, I will add another Sonos 1 for my office in the very near future.
