It's built for business but equipped for multimedia as well, though playing MP3s requires a memory expansion card. Weighing just 4.6 ounces and measuring 4.5 by 3.1 by 0.5 inches (HWD), the sleek Tungsten E has a remarkably bright 320-by-320 transflective display.

Excerpt: Although there's no doubt that Sonos is the best multi-room audio system you can buy, the downside has always been price. It's something that the company has tried to address over the years, and now with the Play:3 you can get Sonos for less than £300. The Play:3 is a standalone player with integrated speakers, which looks like a smaller Sonos Play:5 (renamed from its original ZonePlayer S5 to match the company's new branding).
