  • Excerpt: I t’s really no surprise that Sonos has been growing by leaps in bounds in the last few years.  They can thank the proliferation of smart devices, relatively ubiquitous high speed internet, and the booming popularity of services such as Spotify, Pandora, and all of those alike. But still, one major hurdle has long faced the company. And that’s the price of entry consumer’s face when it comes to the company’s wireless speaker system.

Sonos Play:1 review

  • Conclusion: The Play:1 is a great addition to the Sonos range, as it suddenly gives existing Sonos owners a lot more options. For people that want to get started with Sonos, this is a great entry-level device that doesn't cost an absolute fortune. You'll need to make sure that you put the player near your router and hook it up via Ethernet, or buy the £39 Bridge if you want to go wireless, though.

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

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. Except we thought the Play:1 would also be portable to allow for garden and bathroom listening, and it’s not.
  • 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. Our only real complaint at the time was that we thought it would sell better at £199 instead of £259. Two years on and we now get to see why the Play:3 wasn't £199.
  • 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
