[Test] Sonos Play:3, la musique partout

diisign.com
14 January 2015
  • Summary: L’enceinte Play:3 est une belle petite addition au système Sonos pour ceux qui en possèdent déjà un et souhaitent l’étendre, mais elle ne fera pas craquer les nouveaux venus à cause d’une musicalité clairement en retrait de sa grande soeur Play:5.
  • Pros: + Compacité, + Petite mais puissante, + Prix abordable, + Consommation électrique réduite par rapport au reste de la gamme, + Possibilité d’en utiliser 2 comme paire stéréo
  • Cons: - Pas d’espoir d’avoir le moindre effet stéréo avec une si petite enceinte, - Connectivité limitée (pas de prise casque, simple prise Ethernet), - Qualité sonore en retrait par rapport à un Play:5 (normal, vu la taille), - Consommation en veille toujours relativement élevée (3,5W)

  • Excerpt: I love music and make my living off of that love, in print and on the air. But when it comes to audio quality, I’m tuned out. In the family room, I’m just fine with Boston Acoustic A60s in the bookshelves above the stereo—just two of them. 5.1 is 3.1 more than we need.

  • Summary: The cheapest Sonos speaker yet, the Play:3, is as easy to use and as versatile as we'd expect. But, if you can lay down a few more notes, the Sonos Play 5 is worth the upgrade.
  • Pros: Easy to set up and use; iPhone, Android and iPad apps; support for Spotify; good sound quality for its size.
  • Cons: Expensive.

Sonos Play:3 Wireless Speaker Delivers Big Sound In a Smaller Package

mashable.com
27 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Sonos released its smaller but still powerful Play:3 all-in-one speaker this week. We tried the new speaker side-by-side with the larger Sonos Play:5 (formerly the S5) to determine if there's any sacrifice to spending $299 on a Wi-Fi compatible speaker compared with the Play:5's $399 price.

Sonos Play:3

PC Magazine
6 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The Sonos Play:3 sounds fantastic and is finally affordable, but the omission of an aux input or the ability to dock or stream directly from a phone or iPod make the system less versatile than other wireless audio options.
  • Pros: Strong audio performance. Can be paired with a second unit to make a stereo pair. Switches to mono output automatically when in vertical orientation.
  • Cons: No aux input for direct listening from a mobile device. Needs the Sonos Bridge to function wirelessly (not included). Sonos Desktop Controller does not automatically update your music library.
