Listen in stereo.

PLAY:1 is our smallest speaker. So it’s a perfect fit for bookshelves, counters, and other snug places. So now you can enjoy great-sounding music wherever you want to listen.

Multiple orientations.

Stand it tall or set it on its side. Either way, PLAY:3 automatically optimizes 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.

    The Sonos items we bought online arrived promptly and sound as good as they look. At last, that Spotify subscription is worth paying for.

    Comments about SONOS PLAY:3:

    I can't fault it. I would love it to have a line in and be able to connect to it straight from Apple music or control it with Homekit. However that would just be being picky. It's an absolute belter of a speaker. Once set up the sound is brilliant, fills the room. Would highly recommend it so much so I want another one


    So good I bought another.

      Comments about SONOS PLAY:3:

      Bought a Play 3 after my other music system blew the power supply. It was another well known make. The Sonos Play 3 was just the job. Never drops out and the sound is great, crisp and punchy. I haven't regretted buying it. Easy to set up too. I also bought the Play 1 for the dining room a week later which I'm also pleased with.

        Comments about SONOS PLAY:3:

        Product is OK on surround sound but was sold to be to have voice come from rear speakers, if paired as such it is OK, but voice sound can be deep and muffled, with now choice to change it as with sound bar.
        Once paired as 2 rear speakers, it is annoying the volume want work from TV remote as with surround sound or bar. And everytime TV is turned off they have to be paired again, or if to mobile device with the app leaves the room, it looses the pairing.
