Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing piece of kit! I am so glad I finally bought the Play 3 after many months of deliberation. Gone are the days of staring at my cd collection and struggling to choose a tune to play. They are all now transferred to iTunes and I'm now rediscovering albums and songs I forgot I had at the touch of a button through the Sonos app on my iPad or iPhone. Having subscribed to spotify premium, I now have a whole new world of music at my fingertips. Great to be able to choose from a myriad of radio stations too. The sound quality is out of this world . . So crisp and clear whatever the volume and I like my music loud! Can't wait to add the Play 1 to my collection so I can enjoy my music all over the house and in the garden when the sun finally decides to shine. Very pleased with my decision to go with Sonos and I don't doubt for a minute that you would feel the same . . Go on . . Treat yourself! 17 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must have product Great wireless speaker, amazing sound quality and looks great too. About to buy another one for the kitchen. Definitely a must have item!. 04 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Revives music Fantastic piece of equipment to have in your home. The sound quality is second to none and something you can add to to enhance its capabilities. 04 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just buy it! Streaming music is new to me, so I have little to compare it to. However, after doing some research including reading these reviews, I jumped in with both feet, buying one of these for my kitchen along with two Play 5s - for lounge and bedroom. The sound quality, for the price and size, is just incredible. If anything, it's a tad on the bassy side for me, preferring my sound a little crisper, but changing the EQ settings I've found a level I'm happy with. I've bought these to replace a Bose Wave system (about the same price# and it blows the Bose out of the water. The controllers #our household has controllers on PC, iPad, Android pad and Android phone# are responsive, intuitive, easy to use, etc. Being able to independently set music levels #volume, EQ) on each speaker - even when they are grouped - is a tremendous benefit. Now I've nearly finished uploading all my CDs to Amazon Cloud, choosing music, creating playlists is a doddle. It's great re-discovering music that I haven't listened to for years and wouldn't possible choose to put on, by adding albums to a playlist and selecting shuffle play. Going to get a "1" for the bathroom next! 28 January 2015

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sonos Play 3 losing bass Bought to Play 3 speakers, however after a couple of uses one of them keeps losing bass. After googling it seems to be a fairly common problem which can apparently be remedied by turning the volume up full and then back down again. I am reluctant to do this seeing as they are only a couple of weeks old and intend returning the faulty one for a replacement. I will give Sonos another chance but if a similar problem occurs it will be bye bye Sonos 31 December 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not quite there Sonos A SONOS play 1 and 3 purchased for me as a Christmas present so eagerly awaited set up day Christmas Day. Downloaded the App on my ipad and iphone (and android tablet!). It was a doddle, set up very easy (though read through the routers which are not compatible with the system first, luckily mine wasn't on the list). I was hoping that it could play music streamed from the 'cloud' but unfortunately not (this is not the reason for 3*) which is a shame. You can only play music that is on your device. You cannot save a 'Playlist' on your device only on a PC or laptop, so if your phone or ipad is struggling with space it will be a 'challenge' (again not the reason for 3*). Quality of sound is excellent and you can 'group' the rooms together or play separate music on each speaker and control the volume in each room with your controller (iphone, ipad etc). Excellent! However, the system is let down but it's poor reliability, not the QUALITY but in the 4 or 5th song it can (6 out of 10 times) crash and you need to 'reset' your app and switch off and then back on your Sonos hardware. There a conflict somewhere either on the app or the 'wireless' router or both. Over to you Sonos! Would I 'buy' again, on balance yes, I'll be adding more speakers. Hope this helps 29 December 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ok, but needs a few improvements. Great quality made item from Sonos although there are a few downside to the Sonos range which we have just discovered in setting up the speaker. 1. The app you MUST download on your phone is over complicated and not easy to follow. 2. There is no bluetooth. 3. You can connect your music through the internet only, but it does not allow music from your phones memory card to be played. 4. There is a delay between the controlling device and it coming on the speaker when selecting a new song. 5. We can't seem to connect to a new wireless network as instructed and it will only play using the ethernet cable. Having said this I am still undecided if we are keeping it as the sound is awesome. 22 December 2014
