Sounds bigger than it looks.

Wonder where all that sound is coming from? The technical answer—from a pair of Class-D amplifiers and custom-built drivers, all meticulously tuned to the speaker’s unique acoustic architecture.

Humidity resistant.

We built PLAY:1 humidity resistant so you can enjoy your favorite songs in music-starved places like bathrooms and outdoor patios. All you need is WiFi access and a place to plug it in. Just remember, it’s not waterproof or weather resistant.

One app. Complete music control.

The Sonos app helps you quickly search through all your services to track down favorite music, send it to different rooms, and adjust the volume and other settings. You don’t even have to be in the same room. And if your friends have the Sonos app, they can do the same.

Check out the app.

    Comments about SONOS PLAY:1:

    Sonos is so easy that I remember to actually turn on and listen to music every day. I have a Play:1 and a Connect which cover the family areas of the house. I've always liked listening to music but I've never had the ability to easily play it on any system. Airplay and Apple TV have all kinds of problems like source of media (bluetooth or laptop until recently), only able to play in one room (I move around my house all day working from home) and limited to apple music/itunes if you want things to be simple.

    Sonos solves all of that. My mom (MY MOM! she can use SONOS), got 3 of these speakers for christmas. I setup google wifi for her because that was "too complicated" but she can use Sonos. I can see her playing music on Sonos every day via google wifi data usage. Amazing.

    The connect brought all that to my bose surround sound system. Music everywhere.

    One nagging problem, *some* sonos device needs a stable internet connection. If you don't have that, it won't work well. Several mesh router systems have had issues with it from personal experience (Orbi, Eero...). I returned all of those routers and stuck with my airport extreme because Sonos just works on that. Sonos is more important.

    Just buy Sonos and be done.

        Great to fill the room, whole house and even the backyard with music! Lots of your favourite sources to stream. Can't believe it took me this long to purchase--should have done it much earlier.

            I am a 39 year old woman and am trying to just not become totally obsolete. I wanted to be able to walk around my house and still hear my stereo. I don't have the patience for all the tech talk and was not sure what I was getting into, and just decided to trust all the reviews I read,mainly deferring to wirecutter. so happy I did. I listen to music and podcasts so much more frequently now because it's so easy to do. Great sound. Great interfaces. Really happy.
