  • 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 remains amazing.
  • Two PLAY:3s work as Sonos home theater rear speakers.
  • Wall or stand mountable.
  • Streams over wi-fi, not Bluetooth, so the music never stops – even if you get a phone call.

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. Rec 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 in any room. Add on.

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 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 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.

    Stereo pair with another PLAY:3

    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 handle 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 customize your sound by individual room or groups of rooms.

    Comments about SONOS PLAY:3:

    We absolutely love the Sonos system. The technician that set up our newest TV said that the Sonos system is absolutely the best. He said that it is tremendously better than the Bose system. We already loved it but after that we felt really proud that we chose to stay with the Sonos. Our son introduced us to the Sonos system and we are forever grateful!

          Take the time to go through the TruePlay setup. It's worth it. I went with sonos because the system is easy to play music all through my house. But I was surprisingly delighted with the audio quality of this speaker.
