Summary: I purchased the SONOS PLAY:1 as an enhancement to my SONOS PLAY:5 device. The setup of the SONOS PLAY:1 was very easy and it was also a snap to partner it with my SONOS PLAY:5. I was more impressed by the sound than expected, especially for the price!
Summary: Given the small size of the speaker, it sounds surprisingly good. I love all of the Sonos products including this one. For the price you could probably substitute 2 of these in a larger room for a Sonos-5 and set them to play as LEFT and RIGHT.
Summary: Purchased this speaker as an add-on to an existing SONOS Playbar & Sub setup. Using the speaker in a 5.1 configuration is fantastic. So easy to setup and add. Great for surround usage. In standalone with a few minor tweaks to the Bass & Treble, it sound superb. I use these in both kitchen and bathroom (since they are humidity resistant) where both applications are ideal for wanting music all around the house. Definitely recommended.
Summary: I have replaced my Logitech Smart UE Radio with a pair of Sonos Play 1s. The quality and reliability of the Sonos are well documented, and despite the expense and the need for an extra "bridge" unit, I can agree with this. A stereo pair of Play 1s makes a huge difference to the sound. The iPad/iPhone interface is easy to navigate also.
Summary: I bought two of these to give them a try - and I'm certainly glad I did. The speakers, though small, produce a clear, strong sound. Lots of people make great speakers, though. What sets SONOS apart is the application. Each speaker works wirelessly through your wifi router, forming a network.
