Sonos Play:1 Wireless Speaker System

Sound & Vision Magazine
7 March 2014
  • Excerpt: At $199 each, the Play:1 represents the new low entry point for the Sonos multiroom wireless audio system. Connect it to your router, download the free controller app to your smartphone or tablet, and you’re ready to start building a wireless wholehouse music system fed by your personal music library or any of the dozens of streaming services now integrated with the system.

SONOS PLAY:1 Wireless Music System

BCCHardware
26 December 2013
  • Summary: The downside to testing a single PLAY:1 is that we can't create a "stereo pair" or play different streams to each of the devices. That being said, what we can test is the range, quality and overall performance of the SONOS PLAY:1 - both software and hardware. As previously mentioned, the software is very good. I can't complain about anything with it at all. It works exactly as advertised and it seems to be very well thought out.
  • Pros: Great software, Build quality, Decent audio quality, Easy to use and setup, Comes with the SONOS Bridge, Flexible options and easy to setup/add other SONOS gear
  • Cons: The SONOS PLAY:1 is a great setup and if you snag a couple of these, you'll likely be very happy. The overall build quality of the hardware as well as the engineering of the software is fantastic. I'm a fan., Needs a pair to really appreciate quality, functionality, Not cheap

QUICKVIEW: Sonos Play:1 Wireless Speaker

15 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Last month launched in the U.S., Sonos' latest wireless speaker - the Sonos Play:1 - is also available in Europe since this month. I don't think that the Sonos system needs any further introduction but if you haven't heard about it yet, it's a wireless HiFi speaker system. It unites locally available digital music collections and streaming services in one app that can be used on smartphones, tablets and PC and notebooks.

PC Magazine

Expert Review

16 October 2013
  • Summary: Rival speakers from the likes of Pure and Bose may pack external batteries and audio input jacks along with Wi-Fi streaming skills, but if you’re not planning on taking your rig outside ever, this won’t even factor into the equation. And while there are still cheaper options for setting up a multi-room streaming speaker system in the home, none work so flawlessly and instantaneously as Sonos’.

Sonos PLAY:1 Review

SlashGear
14 October 2013
  • Conclusion: For existing Sonos users, the PLAY:1 is a no-brainer. Affordable enough to slot easily into an existing zone that needs a little extra oomph, and yet capable enough to keep up the company's reputation for audiophile-friendly quality, it's equally at home setting up new zones in rooms that might once have not quite warranted a full PLAY:3, like guest bedrooms or hallways.

Big sound, small package: Sonos Play:1 reviewed

Gadget Guy
1 April 2014
  • Excerpt: The Sonos system has never been a terribly cheap sound system to buy into, but the Play:1 speaker brings a dose of wireless HiFi to any part of your home without breaking the bank too much. Don't have a network drive storing all your music on your home? No worries, as pretty much every service is supported here.
  • Pros: Amazing amount of sound from such a small package, Compact and very well designed, Wired or wireless network connection, Perfect little addition to anyone with a Sonos system already, Deals with humidity well, making it ideal for placement in the bathroom when you're having a shower
  • Cons: No battery included in the unit, Requires the Sonos Bridge, which means first time buyers can’t just spend the initial price to gain access into the Sonos system
