  • Versatile. Fits perfectly in tall and narrow, or short and wide spaces.
  • Stereo sound. Intense and immersive, with surprisingly deep bass for a speaker its size.
  • Vertical or horizontal, the sound is always amazing.
  • Two PLAY:3s work as Sonos home cinema rear speakers.
  • Wall or stand-mountable.

Play music from Spotify straight to Sonos.

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.

Never obsolete.

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.

Trueplay, custom speaker-tuning for your PLAY:3.

Sonos uses Trueplay tuning to make sure you get the very best sound out of your PLAY:3. No matter where you put it.

    Add a SUB



    Add a SUB.

    Wirelessly connect SUB to your PLAY:3 stereo pair for dramatically deeper bass. Since your PLAY:3s don’t have to worry about the bass anymore, they can focus on producing better mid-range and high frequencies.

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.

      This was so easy to set up and attach to our music library on the NAS.
      We are largely 'background' music listeners, but cranking it up occasionally also sounds great.

        Heard Sonos at my sons house best sound I have heard in years. When working spent a lot on top end hi-fi but system sold when I retired and downsized. So impressed with my son's Sonos I replaced my existing set up and don't regret it at all I can now listen to decent sound/music in my retirement.
        p.s. also bought my wife a Play1
