Summary: This unit sits next to a Bose Wave speaker in my home and sounds muffled in comparison. Mid-tones are lost, and the high's sound tinny. Overall it sounds like the speaker is wrapped in a blanket.
I very much love the Sonos software, but this speaker left me far from impressed with the audio quality.
Pros: Slick software, great integration.
Cons: Sound quality is mediocre at best - comparable speakers from companies like Bose (and even Logitech) sound much better.
Summary: These are truly "okay" but I think they are a bit overrated especially for the price. I have the Play 5, Play 3 (this one), and the Play 1. The sound quality is the issue. It is good but will not blow you away. To quantify this, if 5 was amazing I would give these a 3.25 out of 5.
Summary: The bass response on the Play 3 is average. The Play 5 is much better and if you have the room spend the extra $100. But, the Play 1 is good for a small area and has a better bass response than the Play 3. While it is only a mono unit it's fidelity is excellent.
Summary: This was part of a gift for my daughter. When she used it she thought the sound was mediocre. She added the sub woofer and that made all of the difference in the world. With the sub woofer she would raise it to five stars.
Summary: Love the sound quality and ease of use - setting up the wireless connection was no problem. I was disappointed to find that there was no rechargeable battery - so you can't unplug and carry to another room or outside. Also, no input jack to connect directly to my mp3 music player.
Pros: Easy to set up wireless connection, great sound quality
Cons: No rechargeable battery - please make, I would buy! No input jack for my mp3 player.
Summary: Sonos does not support multiple accounts. This means that only one person in a household can play his/her Spotify account. This is incredibly limiting if you are more than one person wanting to play their music in a household.
