At home in any room.

PLAY:3 delivers richer, more robust sound than PLAY:1. Deeper bass, too. And it can play in stereo. All of which makes it just right for places like bedrooms. Home offices. Garages. Living rooms. Wherever you’re doing the kinds of things that deserve a great soundtrack.


Set up over Wifi.

Plug in. Connect. Stream without interruptions or interference.

Start with any room. Add on later.

Play different songs in different rooms. Or the same song everywhere.

Control with one app.

Pick a room. Pick a song. Hit play.

Keeps getting better.

Software updates mean the product you buy today will be even better tomorrow.


Listen in stereo.

Even if you’re not an all-out audiophile, you still deserve great sound. PLAY:3 delivers, in stereo. Three Class-D amplifiers and three custom-built drivers create a full, wide sound stage so the instruments and vocals really shine. There’s also a bass radiator to pump out the lows.

Multiple orientations.

Stand it tall or set it on its side. Either way, PLAY:3 automatically optimises the sound. When it’s horizontal, it’s in stereo. When it's vertical, it's in mono. The rubber feet on two sides make it safe for any surface.

One app. Complete music control.

The Sonos app helps you quickly search through all your services to track down your favourite music, play it and adjust the volume in different rooms throughout the home. You don’t even have to be in the same room as a speaker. And if your friends have the Sonos app, they can do the same.

Check out the app.

Over 30 streaming services available.

Sonos plays everything: the most popular streaming services, on-demand services, internet radio, your favourite podcasts and audiobooks, your go-to collection of downloads—whatever you love to listen to.

Explore music services.

Play music from Spotify straight to Sonos.

Enjoy all the personalised Spotify playlists and other listening features you love and more, streaming in perfect sound on your Sonos speakers, without needing to open your Sonos app.

Specs

Audio

Three Class-D digital amplifiers perfectly tuned to match the three dedicated speaker drivers and the acoustic architecture.

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

Two mid-woofers deliver stereo sound and ensure you’ll hear the faithful playback of mid-range vocal frequencies plus deep, rich bass.

A bass radiator provides deep, clean, and surprisingly powerful bass from such a small package.

Adjustable bass and treble controls let you customise your sound by individual room or groups of rooms.

    Great sound, problem is, everyone in the family now wants to use it because it is so good. Perhaps a little over-priced.

          Comments about SONOS PLAY:3:

          I have tried many products to get a true Multi Room experience and found them all to be restrictive, hard to setup or slow to respond, I have looked several times at Sonos but the price always put me off, having finally made the transition to Sonos I now have the result I have been after for so long, I admit it has not come cheaply but I find I am now using my system even more due to the ease of use and will be expanding my system over the next 12 months,
