Sonos PLAY:1 Smart Speaker, White

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.

Turn your Sonos speaker set up into a multiroom experience. Two PLAY:1s make a stereo pair which create a bigger, wider, deeper sound. Add a PLAY3, PLAY:5 and PLAYBAR and you’ve created a home theatre.

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

About Sonos

This California-based company has spent most of its near 15-year history selling high-end speakers to studio professionals and cash-rich audiophiles. Their flair for sublime sound engineering led them to break the mainstream market in 2013, with their wireless Multiroom range.

Cracking a balance of simplicity, stunning sound and game-changing tech, Sonos has since become a key player in the home audio market. They’ve adapted their studio-quality pedigree into an affordable range, that delivers house-filling sound for more casual listeners. Supplemented by a slick app, Sonos is one of the market-leaders in Multiroom technology.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 306 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sonos Play 1 At its launch several years ago this was a great product. Today there are many more choices where the quality is higher (especially as Sonos does not support higher quality audio formats). Sonos needs to update this product (like the Sonos 5). 27 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sonos speakers breed! Excellent addition to system that includes Playbar and other Sonos Ones. 26 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fab sound and flexibility Loved our Sonos so much we now have 3! Don't hesitate it takes a while to work out the app but worth persevering 20 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great look, great sound Really good sound in the kitchen, though I think I'd pair it with another SONOS Play 1 for a larger room. Easy to set up, takes up little space, sounds great. I'm a happy buyer! 19 April 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by awful app lets it down great sound, great looking BUT the apps aren't great if you intend to use spotify. (iphone app is ok, mac desktop app is one of the worst apps I've used) With all sonos devices you have to use the official sonos app and cannot use the superior spotify app and as a result have to trudge through a clunky and unsatisfying method of pulling up you spotify playlists, saved albums etc through the sonos app. This is slow and involves many steps that lets the whole experience down. Such a shame as I like everything else about it but its annoying enough to mean I'll be returning it and buying a bluetooth speaker instead. 17 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Time to play music Sonos play 1, Great sound, easy to set up and link to other speaks and my mobile/ tablet Would recommend this to anyone Get involved ! 12 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great addition to my SONOS system I added this PLAY:1 to the other 4 speakers I have throughout the house, this one for the bedroom. The sound fills the room easily and is of great quality. 12 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buy!! What a fantastic idea, the mix of radio and ability to play music from the phone is superb. It has pushed me into getting up to date and adding music to my phone, all very straightforward to set up, even for an old duffer like me! Not sure of the relative benefit of the more expensive units as the reproduction on this unit is pretty good, certain would recommend you dipping your toe into the water and trying this entry level product. 12 April 2016
