SONOS SPEAKERS 1, 3, 5 & BRIDGE

C. A. Burciaga "Realtor", Amazon
26 September 2014
  • Summary: Speakers provide wonderful sound; however, they require high maintenance to keep them connected to the controller. At first that may have been because of a weak wireless signal from the source but now, I have boosted the signal to 5 bars and even after assistance from tech support, I open the...

Great hardware. Weak software.

  • Excerpt: use it for music. I realized how limited it was the other day though. I wanted to listen to an audio/video clip my wedding planner sent me on a band option. Would have been sweet to hear over the awesome speaker, but just not doable. should work like appletv.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality

12 August 2014
  • Excerpt: There seems to be a problem with Apple products and song skipping. When I first purchased the product, this did not occur, but after an update, it was an issue for me and MANY others. Stuff happens, right? BUT SONOS has not responded and solved the problem.
  • Pros: Great Sound When It Work
  • Cons: Software Glitch- Annoying

Great sound, poor software quality

9 August 2014
  • Excerpt: It would be a great if I didn't have to set it up from scratch on a monthly basis. The sound is amazing and everything works great for a while but occasionally I'll launch the app and its as if I'd never set it up.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Constantly Resets, Only 1 Accountservice, Tedious To Setup

Does not maintain wifi connection

Steve, pcrichard.com
13 March 2014
  • Excerpt: There are two problems... each device is only one channel. To get stereo sound, you have to purchase two... expensive. They have good power, but without stereo, it sounds flat. Also, the wifi connection is horrible. I have a lot of AV equipment in the house that uses wifi.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Can't Stay Connected, Expensive To Get Stereo, Mono

Speaker Great, Sonos App Terrible

Soundman, pcrichard.com
18 February 2014
  • Excerpt: * I use this product in the kitchen to play music while cooking. The sound is great, but having to use the Sonos app to get music to it is painful. It would be great if Sonos would integrate with Spotify Connect (or within rdio / deezer / whatever player you'd like) so you could use the speaker(s)...

Falls well short of expectations

David, pcrichard.com

  • Excerpt: Sure the sound is fine, but doenst matter when it doesn't connect to computer. Spotty connection at best. "Computer doesn't recognize system" "unable to play song" blah blah blah. When you spend that much money on one box, you want to work slightly better than average.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Doesn't Work Well

Sonos Play 3's with Playbar

JG, Crutchfield
12 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought 2 Play 3's for a family room where TV watching with a Sonos Playbar or stand alone stereo listening would occur. The "balance" or "fade" between the Play 3's & Playbar is inadequate. There should be more control when associated with the Playbar.
  • Pros: The Play 3's sound great when they act as left and right channel speakers when not associated with the Playbar. Power plug only gives a clean install. Integrates seamlessly with other Sonos components.
  • Cons: It is a pain in the neck to disassociate the Play 3's from the Playbar to act as left and right channel speakers for stereo listening. It is a pain in the neck to associate the Play 3's with the Playbar every time you want to watch TV. You have to do the set-up procedure every time you switch bet...

Still undecided...

Unhappy Customer, pcrichard.com
10 February 2014
  • Excerpt: While the sound is great, I have had a multitude of problems with my Play: 3 and Bridge. Songs and connection constantly cut out. I actually had my cable provider come and reinstall my router and internet cable so it was in the same room as my Play: 3. Unfortunately the same problems have occurred.
