Sonos Play:3 Review

Digitaltrends
20 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Sonos has a real winner on its hands with the Play:3. Its blend of excellent sound, smart style, dependable operation and ease of use makes it a standout performer in the world of wireless audio. And considering just how much you get for your money, the Play:3 has to be the best value component yet to come down the Sonos pike.
  • Pros: Huge, room-filling sound, small footprint, Highly enjoyable sound with all kinds of music, Multi-room setup is remarkably simple, Sonos controller app a joy to use, Solid, inert construction
  • Cons: Mids can sound a little distorted, No standard speaker inputs, i.e. only compatible with other Sonos gear

Wireless Hi-Fi takes on AirPlay

12 October 2011
  • Summary: So, will the Play:3 see Sonos break into the audio mainstream? Probably not. Don't get me wrong, the $299 Play:3 is a brilliant all-in-one wireless speaker that fits perfectly within Sonos' lineup. At $100 less than the $399 Play:5 it can, under certain conditions, trump its bigger brother.
  • Pros: Small powerful speaker, Wireless convenience, Really can stream “any song on Earth”
  • Cons: Sonos’ cheapest all-in-one speaker at $299 is still pricey, $49 Bridge or no $49 Bridge, that’s the question, No line-in or headphone jacks like the bigger Play:5

Sonos Play 3

8 August 2011
  • Summary: Originally the Sonos music system was out of the price range of most consumers with more affordable alternatives available. Sonos has been addressing this fact by reducing the prices of its original ZonePlayers while adding standalone portable speaker systems. The PLAY:3 is their lowest price wireless stereo system making the entry cost into the world of Sonos less than a Bose Sound Dock speaker dock; plus the PLAY:3 does have highs and lows along with the mids.
  • Pros: +Works with MotionPlus, +Lots of uses for the accessories, +Quality made products, they should last quite a while with care, +Covers can be left on for use with any games
  • Cons: -You’ll need more than one set really, -Personally I think the price is a bit high

Sonos Play:1, Play:3 et Play:5

  • Conclusion: Avec ou sans fil, le système audio multiroom Sonos est d’une simplicité et d’une efficacité redoutable. Evolutif, il permet à tous d’installer un ensemble audio extrêmement performant plus ou moins complet dans une habitation. Il délivre un son Hi-Fi d’une très grande justesse et se contrôle très facilement au travers l’application depuis un smartphone ou une tablette tactile, seul le volume peut être délicat à gérer mais avec un peu d’habitude, on en fait son affaire.
  • Pros: Facilité d’installation, Qualité audio, Interface de l’application de contrôle, Performances de l’application, Contrôle lecture depuis la Play:1, Nombreuses sources possibles, Connectivité
  • Cons: Gestion du volume manquant de précision depuis l’application
