Sonos PLAY:1 Smart Speaker, 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.

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 230 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Pants Operating System, beautiful sound I will state that I have returned this item for the above reason. I spent a lot of time trying to set this system up. The biggest problem I had was the app not allowing me access to my iTunes Match library from my iPad, I do not have large storage capicity on the iPad, so I store all of my music on there, and for the app to work, it needed to be stored on my device. Tut tut on the rep instore, no mention of this! I got so vexed by this whole procedure. All I want is my music through a wifi link that sounded great. 50% of my mission was completed with the stored music. However, my internet radio and streamed music elsewhere needed premium! Again, this is unacceptable, I like the speaker to do what I am on my iPad! AirPlay is that. So Bluetooth works for me! All this said, the sound rocks... 08 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by SONOS PLAY1 At present used as solo player. Very good reproduction with plenty of volume and nicely balanced tone across the whole envelope. easy to use and sits innocuously without attracting too much visual attention. nicely supports a paired set of play 3's used in another room. 08 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Set up struggle This product meets my needs exactly - a single speaker in a room separate from my main computer but connected wirelessly so I can play my iTunes collection from my iMac. it looks good, sounds good and operates by wireless from my iPad. So why not 5 stars? Because despite being fairly familiar with my own network and setup it took a week to get it working! Getting the iPad controller from the App Store, downloading the Sonos app from Sonos (not the App store) to my iMac ... tweaking my Permissions and Firewall and Sharing ... and still the speaker would only work by ethernet .... Pause for frustration ... lengthy trawl through the Sonos website and its detailed help ... emails to Sonos ... and finally, a week after purchase, an hour-long tutorial from an exceptionally helpful Sonos technician who fixed it at last! I hope I am an exception! 04 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sonos speaker single Its the best sound I have heard from a speaker system. 02 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Perfect Clear Tones This speaker system is reliable and punches above its weight. 02 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy set up, great sound Lives up to the great reviews. Crisp, clear sound, looks great. Very happy. 01 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent purchase! Very pleased with this product. I bought two, one for the living room and one for the bedroom & they work excellently together as a pair or separately. Brilliant sound with no distortion, even at higher volumes. My only criticism is that there's no repeat play function as part of the app & it makes great long playlists of all the songs you've played, that said I wouldn't be without it. Excellent purchase! 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by It does exactly what I wanted to achieve. I am absolutely delighted with the product from Sonos. I have used it to listen to several kinds of music and I am really satisfied with the sound quality. 01 December 2015
