Sonos Play:3

Wired
28 January 2013
  • Excerpt: When it comes to multi-room wireless music systems, Sonos has been one of the go-to choices for years now. Even with the proliferation of wireless AirPlay and Bluetooth speakers, no other system has been able to match the company’s unique combination of simplicity and sound quality. If there was anything holding the Sonos back, it’s been the fairly steep price of admission.

Sonos Play 3

CNET
22 April 2012
  • 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.
  • Cons: Expensive.

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.

Sonos Play:3 Wireless Speaker Review

Maclife
5 October 2011
  • Conclusion: At 300 bucks, the Play:3 is the most affordable path into Sonos’ multi-room systems. If AirPlay isn’t quite enough, Sonos’ pricey entry-level wireless speaker might be music to your ears.
  • Pros: Good sound for the size. Doesn’t distort at high volumes. Easy to set up and operate. Lets you access your iTunes library and tons of streaming content in one place.
  • Cons: Sonos Controller software for Mac didn’t support Lion at press time, though Sonos was working on a fix. No aux-in or USB port for charging an iOS device. Expensive.

Sonos PLAY:3 Review

BigPictureBigSound
16 September 2011
  • Conclusion: The PLAY:3 isn't the best-sounding product that Sonos makes, but it's certainly the most compact, the simplest to use and configure, and the most affordable. On its own, in a single speaker configuration it doesn't quite belt out the music at high volumes, but it does provide solid sound for smaller spaces.
  • Pros: Insane amount of music options, Very affordable for Sonos, Wireless is an option, Free app makes control easy and portable, Two boxes make a nice (and loud) "stereo pair"
  • Cons: Sound gets distorted at high volumes, No option to hook to a larger AV setup, Needs hardwired connection or $50 more for wireless

Expert Review

PC Advisor
23 April 2012
  • Excerpt: The Sonos Play:3 is a network speaker that can accept audio inputs from a wide range of sources. The setup is modular, meaning you can buy one Play:3 at first and add to your Sonos range later via a ‘bridge’ unit that links additional speakers. Although it carries only audio signals rather than the photo and video options seen in most of the other devices we review here, music streaming is both more established and, thanks to the more manageable bandwidth requirements,...

Sonos Play:3

CNET
3 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Pour rappel, le système Sonos se résume à un écosystème complet et totalement modulaire pour le partage et l’écoute « multi-room » de musique. Les sources audio autorisées sont multiples et comprennent les ordinateurs (Mac ou PC) avec prise en charge d’iTunes, les baladeurs, les radios Internet, et divers services de musique en ligne. Ces derniers dépendent évidemment des pays. En France il s’agit essentiellement de Deezer et de Spotify .
  • Pros: design, qualité du son, facilité d’utilisation, fonctionnalité de streaming à partir d’Internet ou du réseau domestique, les services en ligne disponibles, application télécommande pour smartphones et tablettes sous iOs et Android, modularité.
  • Cons: prix, pas d’entrée ligne sur le module, module Bridge indispensable, pas d’accès à AirPlay avec un simple Play:3.

  • Summary: Nå har Sonos lansert en kombinert høyttaler og musikkstrømming-spiller i en prisklasse som heldigvis er mer overkommelig. Og de lykkes godt! Lyden til Sonos Play:3 er både fyldig og god, og stor nok til en mellomstor stue. Musikken blir levert via nettverket til en pc eller en nettverksharddisk med en digital musikksamling.
  • Pros: God lyd, Smart musikkstreaming, Kan styres med telefon
  • Cons: Dyr, Krever ekstrautstyr

  • Excerpt: Men mindre kan gøre det, og Sonos har også små højttalere, der kan stå alene som et system eller som en del af en multirumsløsning. Den nyeste og mindste, Play:3, kan således modtage musikken trådløst, hvis du enten køber en såkaldt bridge fra Sonos (koster 399 kroner) eller sætter Play:3 direkte til din router via Ethernet-kabel.
