Excerpt: This is the third Sonos speaker I have gotten for my wife; for her 70th birthday, our kids gave her two Sonos speakers. She loves them because one channel can be on in one room, another channel in a second room, so we are both happy.
Excerpt: I have had a PLAY5 system for several years. At the time the Sonos Bridge was required to make the system work, which I am still using. However with the software update of fall 2014 the bridge is no longer necessary.
Pros: Construction Quality, Finish Detail, Packaging, Sound Fidelity, value
Excerpt: Easy set up and great sound! I literally had these connected to my existing Sonos network and playing as a stereo pair within minutes of unpacking them. I have a Play 5 already and the Play 1's are a nice addition for my living room which is about 300sf (moved the Play 5 to my bedroom).
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
