Sonos PLAY:1 Wireless Music System, Black

Product information

Sonos PLAY:1 is the latest addition to the Sonos wireless speaker family. It brings the same high-end sound quality and ease of use to a more compact form, while staying just as simple to set up. PLAY:1 can stream all your music in any room for wall-to-wall sound. It also integrates in moments with your pre-existing Sonos setup, expanding your listening with more detail. You can even control your Sonos from your Android, iPhone or iPad device with a simple App download.

Crystal clear sound
The PLAY:1 features two expertly-tuned Class D amplifiers, a 3.5-inch mid-woofer and a single tweeter. Combined, these create exceptionally accurate playback across all genres of music.

Compact size
Place this speaker anywhere in your house thanks to its compact size, mounting hole and custom power cord. The continuous curve grille also supports wider sound projection, delivering more flexibility of placement.

Simple controls
You can take control of your PLAY:1 using your smartphone or tablet but if neither is nearby there are buttons on top of the device. Just press Pause/Play once to start or stop the music and twice to skip tracks.

Wall mountable
This speaker comes with a standard quarter-inch, 20 threaded insert to readily connect with most wall-mounting brackets.

Power cord, Ethernet cable and quick start guide.

Q & As

Sonos PLAY:1 Wireless Music System 4.8 5 94 94
Does this have to be plugged in all the time? I bought the play 1 and bridge. Excellent sound and looks really cool (purchased in white). Works really well with Spotify and easy to set up. About to order another Play 1. Does anyone know of the speakers have to be plugged in to a socket all of the time? I'd appreciate advice on this. If so, this is the only downside I can see and that's why I have given 4 rather than 5 stars. 11 September 2014
Sonos Play 1 I thought this was very good but it was a bit expensive. 03 September 2014
Does not look out of place sitting anywhere. Advantage is you can put it anywhere. If you have the Snos bridge & the quality is very good. It does not even look bulky plugged into Router. 28 August 2014
Really pleased with this product I purchased this for my daughter-in-law. She loves it so much she has purchased a second one. The flexibility and sound quality is excellent. 20 August 2014
SONOS Play:1 - Music and Audio at its easiest This is our third Play 1, the first going into the kitchen/breakfast room, the second into the sunroom, and this latest into the master bedroom. They network seamlessly, with the minimum of effort, and it is extremely simple to have them all play the same thing, or different things, or to group two while the other is silent or playing something else. The iPhone / iPad app (in place of a remote - there isn't one) is simple and effective (can't speak for Android). The speaker itself is reassuringly heavy and obviously well-built, and while it produces a very mellow tone for the price, it cannot compete with the more expensive versions in the SONOS range - you do get what you pay for. I have rated it 5 stars mainly because of its ease of use, and also for the price the sound quality for the uses I put it to (background music while working, radio news / talk programmes etc) is excellent. Don't forget that you will need to buy a Bridge (WiFi Connector / Hub) to get your system started (sometimes free with a soundbar purchase) 01 August 2014
Sonas Play 1 This was for my daughter and she love it. It as just what she wanted. 29 July 2014
Fantastic and simple Bought two of these units after seeing them set up at my son's house. Simple to install using the interactive app on our iPad. Sound is great with good bass sounds from such a small unit. Recommend. 29 July 2014
Dont buy Save your money. Although the sound is very good, however there is no graphic equaliser and is very heavy on the base. It is fairly easy to set up it but it has some major flaws 1. You have to use the basic Sono app to play any music. Therefore no BBCi player/radio. 2. You have to be a premium member of a music streaming site to use this, (this is why they offer 6 months free of Google play. 3. As you have to go via their app, you loose all of the good browsing methods that Spotify provide and you have to keep dipping from one to the other. 24 July 2014
