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 59 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Very, very special! My favourite toy! I LOVE IT. It is really simple to use and belts out pitch-perfect sound, undistorted at high volumes. The app is really good, syncs easily with Spotify and can be run on multiple devices simultaneously, so you are never far from a controller. I cannot wait to add to the collection and start filling my rooms with more speakers. 25 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 Wonderful product. If the whole Sonos range functions as well as the 3 then it will give you a spectacular sound system that gives you many options with fabulous performance, all in a compact package. My only gripe, I thought all the speakers came with the wireless connector, but sadly they do not, and there was no information on the box or website to indicate that you would need to purchase the said connector. 24 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A versatile sound system Very good sound quality from such a small unit. It is very versatile, I can play music from my database on a Nova Fidelity X40, or from my phone or PC, stream from the internet and listen to the radio. I can control it from my Android phone, Chromebook or Laptop using the apps available. However, in my opinion the Play 1 is just as good and considerably cheaper. 24 November 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by sonos. its ok A bit disappointed. Doesn't provide room filling sound and would have been better, I think, purchasing two Sonos Ones for stereo sound. 18 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Software design flaw if you don’t live alone! If you live in a household where people have separate music collections on different computers or phones then the Sonos software automatically combines everyone’s music into one library. This makes it more difficult to browse through your own music, but the biggest problem is that the software also randomly deletes duplicate tracks. That means unless everyone’s computers and phones are present and switched on then some tracks won’t play. The Sonos helpline’s advice was to buy a shared network drive and put everyone’s music collections onto it, which means extra cost and hassle. They couldn't tell me if they had plans to correct the software, so I took the speakers back for a refund. A real shame because the sound quality was great. 13 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sonos Play3 Easy to set up and does exactly what it claims to do. Sound quality is impressive for something of this size. I particularly like that the system can be expanded at a later date 03 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seriously good I thought there had to be better value options, having read numerous reviews and demoed items from Bose, LG, Panasonic and so on. I was sold following a pretty compelling demo from one of the Sonos reps in store. After plugging it in at home and downloading the software onto my phone, it was up and running and I have to say, there's a reason why this Sonos Play 3 has so many 5 star reviews. The sound quality and power are excellent, beyond my expectations and its incredibly easy to setup. 27 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy it you won't be sorry. I already have a playbar linked to 2 play 1's in the TV room and have now expanded to a superb play3 in the lounge. It works seamlessly with the rest of my sonos. I started with a play1 which was great but the play3 is 50% better in every way. Well worth the extra bit of cash. My next sonos purchase will be a play5 to replace the play3 in the living room and move the play3 into the bedroom. Once you buy one speaker you will want more. 23 September 2015
