  • Conclusion: The Play:1 is a great introduction to the wonderful world of Sonos. Priced at just above a good Bluetooth speaker and sounding much much better, it should be a top choice if anyone is looking for a speaker to use with streaming music.

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?
  • 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

Sonos Play:1 review

Stuff.tv
14 October 2013
  • Summary: We had a feeling there’d be a Play:1 one day. The position under the Play:5 and Play:3 had clearly been left open for a cheaper, smaller all-in-one unit, and that’s exactly what we now have in front of us.
  • Pros: A new, low price for Sonos, Cracking sound, Brilliant usability and endless content
  • Cons: Not portable, No inputs for other sources

Sonos Play:1 review

Pocket Lint
14 October 2013
  • Conclusion: When we reviewed the Sonos Play:3 in July 2011 we said that it sounded great, was easy to setup, and will happily sit in you kitchen or on your bedside table replacing that digital radio that doesn't do anything apart from play what's being broadcast now.
  • Pros: Good sound, multi-room support, easy setup, lots of options for streaming services, app for smartphone and tablet
  • Cons: Single unit means mono output, you'll want a smartphone or a tablet and a streaming service subscription to get the most out of it
