Deep, crystal clear sound.

  • Two speaker drivers powered by two dedicated digital amplifiers

    The PLAY:1 uses two state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with two speaker drivers to deliver great sound to any room. The wireless music system provides pure, clean sound that is perfect for bringing room filling music to a kitchen, bedroom, office, or just about any room in your home.

  • Class-D amplifiers

    Two Class-D digital amplifiers perfectly tuned to match the speakers and acoustic architecture.

  • Tweeter

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

  • Mid-Woofer

    One mid-woofer ensures the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments, while also delivering a deep, rich bass.

  • Stereo Pair

    Turn two PLAY:1s into separate left and right channel speakers to create wider, bigger, and deeper sound.

  • 5.1 Home Theater

    Add two PLAY:1 speakers to PLAYBAR and SUB for a true surround sound experience.

  • All-digital sound architecture

    All filter settings, active equalization, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry so there's absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.

  • Adjustable bass and treble controls

    Optimize sound performance using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms

    Trueplay measures the acoustics in any room – analyzing things like size, layout and furnishings. Then fine-tunes your PLAY:1 to make the music sound great, no matter where you place your speaker.

      We use this as a radio and alarm in the bedroom. We had one on holiday in a rented house and were very taken with it and bought one on our return. I loved the set up using my iphone microphone to set the sound up for the room. Really pleased with it

            Used every day all day. Use as radio (Dab radio gone to the Dab graveyard)
            Took it on holiday to Spain. (Friends we went with, so impressed they went out and purchased one.
            Sound is just amazing, compact and neat!

            The only slight issue I have is, it seems so complicated when you take it somewhere with you to get it logged into a different Wifi network, and then when you get home,back onto your own.

                    I got this Sonos system after reading all the reviews online and talking to other owners. I wanted something small with great sound output that could easily be moved from inside the house to outside (for some backyard sound). This Sonos system is perfect in every way. I set it up near the back deck and the sound throughout the backyard was perfect (volume, quality and everything else). It's durable enough to not have to worry about someone hitting it and small enough that I actually hid it between two plants.

                    Great purchase, great device, great sound.

                    I had an initial problem setting the Sonos up so i rang customer care and i got speaking to an amazing guy who stayed on the phone with me for over an hour and kep his patience until my room was rocking. Great product, amazing after sales service.
                    My only gripe is the cost jumped 40 euros from when it first came out, 200 to 240 wasa bit of a jump.

                          We bought this for our lake house, we actually purchased two. One for each floor and it is awesome. We love it and would actually purchase these as gifts.

                                    Did not have room for a complete sound system. This small play1 has the advantage of being compact, has a great base and aclear sound.

                                        I bought five of the play 1 and have it scattered all over my home. It's simply amazing to walk into a room and have music blaring from my speakers. The online radios are added advantages. I'll definitely recommend this player to anyone, anytime.

                                          The only downside is the fact every speaker needs to be connected to a power source, apart from that, sound is crisp and clear with no distortion at a loud level and the dash is sweet.

                                                  I have this in my man cave. I don't have a lot of space around my PC so I have it in a convenient space at the other end of the room. I listen to quite a lot of Classical Music so the output must be good (and it is). It has good output a low volume, which iOS nice when I just want background music.

                                                  All in all, this is a product that meets my high expectations, and is everything the reviewers say is good about it.

                                                      This is my first Sonos device, and it has lived up to all the reviews and recommendations I have read about the product. This is a great way to put music in your house, and I'm definitely planning on getting more devices to create a stereo experience and to put music into more rooms in the house. The sound quality is clear and well balanced for a device this size and the app works very well and makes it very easy to find and play the music I want. Recommended.

                                                        Questions?

                                                        1. Do I need a BOOST?

                                                          Use a BOOST if you’re worried about your home WiFi performance.

                                                          Connecting a Sonos unit to your router with an Ethernet cable automatically creates a dedicated Sonos wireless network. Any player or a BOOST can make this hard-wired connection. A dedicated Sonos network is ideal when your WiFi isn’t reliable in your home.

                                                          The music on Sonos comes from your favorite music streaming services, your personal music library and Internet radio stations from around the world. Access all your music within the Main Menu of the Sonos App.

                                                        3. Do you make an outdoor speaker?

                                                          No, but they're all light and portable. As long as there's an outlet, you've got Sonos. The speaker units that we sell, the PLAY:1, PLAY:3 and PLAY:5, are not weather-rated. They can certainly be moved outside, but they are not designed to live outside unless they are in a covered space. If you are looking for a permanent outdoor zone of music, you can use our CONNECT:AMP unit with traditional weather-rated speakers.

                                                          Γ—
                                                        4. Will Sonos work with my existing equipment?

                                                          Already have a Stereo? Use the CONNECT.

                                                          The CONNECT is designed specifically to integrate with an external amplifier/receiver, and bring Sonos functionality to a third party system. Once you have a CONNECT hooked up to your stereo system, you can stream digital music and control the music selection and volume from the Sonos app.

                                                          Have a pair of speakers? The CONNECT:AMP is all you need.

                                                          If you have existing wired speakers that are not currently driven by amplifier, you can use a CONNECT:AMP to bring Sonos functionality to your speakers. Once you wire your speakers to a CONNECT:AMP, you can stream digital music and control the music selection and volume from the Sonos app.

                                                        5. Can I connect Sonos to my TV?

                                                          PLAYBAR is the only soundbar that delivers outstanding Hi-Fi Sound for your TV and is a complete Wireless HiFi System that plays all the music on earth. It is simple to set-up, control and expand throughout your home. With only an optical cable connecting PLAYBAR to your TV, you can control it with your regular TV remote or with the free Sonos apps on iOS, Android, Mac and PC.

                                                          PLAYBAR is the core piece in a Sonos home theater solution. If you want dramatically deeper bass, you can add our wireless SUB. If you're looking for surround sound, you can use two PLAY:1s or two PLAY:3s as wireless rear surrounds.

                                                        6. Can I connect more than 2 speakers to the CONNECT:AMP?

                                                          The CONNECT:AMP is designed for a single pair of speakers - it is a stereo amplifier, right and left channel. However, if your speakers are rated at 8 ohms, you can wire up to 2 pairs, or 4 speakers, to one CONNECT:AMP - you just won’t have independent control between those two pairs of speakers, in terms of volume and music selection.  Γ—
                                                        7. Can I use two PLAY speakers as a stereo pair?

                                                          The PLAY:1, PLAY:3 AND PLAY:5 can easily be setup as a stereo pair, using the controller app. If you are looking for more distinction between the left and right channels, you can use any two matching Sonos speakers in a stereo pair. Creating a stereo pair is a simple software toggle which turns one speaker into a dedicated left and the other into a dedicated right. Stereo pairing creates a wider stereo experience to help you hear every instrument and vocal more discretely, and fill a room more evenly with sound.

                                                        8. Which speaker is right for my room?

                                                          All of our speakers sound great in any room; which speaker is best for your particular room depends on your desired room experience. For many, the PLAY:1 will provide an incredible music experience with deep bass and plenty of power. Consider upgrading to a PLAY:3 or PLAY:5, or to a stereo pair of speakers if you:

                                                          • Want deeper bass
                                                          • Want more power
                                                          • Have the space to set up two players in stereo pair mode

                                                        9. How do I choose between a PLAY:5 and a stereo pair of PLAY:1s?

                                                          While both options deliver an incredible music experience, each has its unique benefits. The differences:

                                                          • Choose PLAY:5 for maximum power and the deepest bass.
                                                          • Choose a stereo pair of PLAY:1s to create a wider sound stage, allowing every vocal and instrument to be heard more discretely.
