Summary: Don't over think this or read too many other reviews. This little guy will sound as good or better than most people need. Sure, if you are an audiophile, high tech sound nerd, you'll want to spend more money.
Excerpt: What more can be written about these speakers. They could not be better built, more compact, have better sound, nor easier to install...then Sono's Play 1. Additionally, the compatibility of the two Play 1's set up as stereo speakers along with the Soundbar and Sub, which I had earlier purchased -...
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Originally I wrote a pretty negative review because of the difficulty I experienced setting up this device on my wifi. I decided to "count to 10" and experience using it a few days before saying something unfair.
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
Summary: I started with one Sonos Play 1 and now have 3 of them in addition to a pair of Play 3's. Sonos is a superb system, easy to use once you get the hang of it, incredibly versatile, and the sound quality is excellent.
Summary: I should start off saying the speaker quality, especially for the size, is terrific. The problem is the software. It crashes about 4 out 5 times I use it. 2 out of 3 it won't play anything from my library...just spins its wheels. It requires constant shutdown and reboots.
