Numerous Connectivity Issues

Len, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: A system when it works sounds very good. I bought 2 wireless speakers and a bridge. I can't tell you how many times the speakers would disconnect from my network. Currently with the updated app and resetting the network, unplugging and replugging, resetting the controller, reinstalling the software,...

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 b...

Too proprietary to excel.

Mark A., B&H Photo
8 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Add Sonos speakers to the long list of poorly executed wireless technology.In the case of Sonos, the system fails not because the speaker sounds lousy. It's a good enough speaker if you're playing MP3s.
  • Pros: Compact size, Mobile Phone App Control, Zone-based Options
  • Cons: No On-off Power Switch, Proprietary Software

SONOS SPEAKERS 1, 3, 5 & BRIDGE

C. A. Burciaga, Amazon
23 March 2012
  • 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...

Still needs work!

Bc, Amazon
11 March 2012
  • Summary: This is an incredible concept, and the equipment is of high quality. The user interface reasonably easy. The problem for Apple users is a constant bug in the system that will not allow sharing. I am a VERY computer literate audiophile, with a decent system.

Almost wonderful but...

Dan Moore "Dan", Amazon
27 September 2011
  • Summary: After attending a demo on the Sonos system at my local A/V shop I decided to order a setup for myself. One thing repeatedly stressed by the Sonos rep was their stellar customer support and universal customer satisfaction.

Not even close to Sonos 5 (play:5)

Stephen Gibson, Amazon
10 September 2011
  • Summary: I had 3 Sonos 5's (now called the play:5) and I wanted to add 4th. The play:3 came out so I decided to save the $100 or so and go for the play:3 after reading all the reviews of it. I had the unit exactly 30 minutes before deciding to return it. It's not even close to the 5's.
