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 63 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply the best! This is my second sonos purchase having treated myself to a play 1 a few weeks ago. I have the play 1 in my office and bought this for the lounge. The sound quality is simply fantastic. I am going to buy some more play 1s for other rooms and in reality feel that perhaps they provide more flexibility as they can be paired up for stereo sound and look less intrusive and (although a matter of taste) more attractive on furniture etc. There are a few things to watch out for though. Their effectiveness depends on your wifi signal. My dining room has poor reception from our wifi so I will need to buy a booster. Not sonos fault but just something to be aware of before making a purchase, particularly as they are high end products. In summary the sound quality is probably the best on the market - it's the app / wifi that presents some minor operating irritations. 05 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by christmas carols as i do housework this is fantastic for our bungalow, with sound in every room, and fantastic sound. 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent system Excellent system so early to set up and portable too. We bought one and then went and got another a week later and set them up so they were stereo. Portable and easy to use and excellent quality sound 01 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Expensive but effective Sonos is a bit like Apple, they have been groundbreaking but others have caught up at a lower price point. The Sonos experience does suffer occasional frustrations when they bugger up a software update (and rigourously deny they're the cause) so be very careful about updates before they've been out for a while. The Play 3 is a nice unit for a stand alone area like a kitchen (in mono) but if you want stereo hi-fi experience you need to double an already high price. One minor gripe is the rubber feet aren't bonded in so if you move the unit around (eg garden in summer) you risk losing them. 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
