    Wirelessly connect SUB to your PLAY:1 stereo pair for dramatically deeper bass. Since your PLAY:1s don’t have to worry about the bass anymore, they can focus on producing better mid-range and high frequencies.

    Comments about SONOS PLAY:1:

    We had some issues with our internet and how best to have our speaker connected. The tech assistant from Sonos spent an hour trouble shooting with me. He gave me options on how best to set up the internet (we rent) to get the best out of our speaker. He was patient, kind and super knowledgeable.

      Comments about SONOS PLAY:1:

      I set out to buy Sonos products to fill a small terraced house with good music but without offending my neighbours! Best way music in several rooms, adjustable from a portable source. I have had some trouble with wifi as the system has expanded to 7 units! Not as a result of Sonos but other changes in my house including other music sources, NAS added, Arcam Solo added etc. Several times Sonos have answered my calls and helped me sort it all out. This last time helping me overcome some Apple network legacy issues - I now have rock solid sound and much better internet! Networks can be difficult - the Sonos people have spent up to 2 hours on the phone helping me out. So glad I went with them and customer service, but the sound is really good too! Thanks.

            Have a sub, 3 x 5's, and just purchased a second 1 to create a stereo pair. Set up the speaker stands, fixed everything up - THEN - really disappointed to find that the black 1 ordered was different to my existing black 1. Gutted, as I will now have to purchase another one which I haven't the money for!

              You get what you pay for. The sound is great for the speaker size. In app equaliser is very convenient. Not suited to larger rooms. Cannot connect directly to TV, extra equipment is required. Streaming limited to what is available on the sonons app
