Meh

  • Summary: Sound quality is good but I don't see much of an advantage over a Bluetooth speaker. Price way overinflated to me. If it were 80 dollars cheaper I would feel better about the purchase.

Should have bought a Play5

Robert D Byrd, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: Play:3 just isn't enough for my room. I think the Play:5 would have been better suited due to square footage, but the good news is that I will be able to use it in another room and add a Play:5 to my overall system in the future. Suggest you keep the Play:3 in a room 10'x10' or less. Maybe SONOS has more official guidance, but that is my call.

So notes so so

  • 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.

Sub-par sound quality

  • Summary: For my bedroom, I've previously used the Bose SoundLink II, but wanted to enable multi-room music with my stereo in the living room, so got the Play: 3 and the Play: Connect. The 3 in the bedroom and the Connect with my living room receiver. The Play: 3 is nice for this setup to create a connected music system, but on its own, the Play: 3 does not produce sound that's worth $300. For a standalone wireless music speaker, the Bose SoundLink II is MUCH better.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Multi-room Capability
  • Cons: Poor Sound Quality

Slightly let down

ChrisbChris, ABT Electronics

  • Summary: We have a Play: 3 in our living room. The first thing that amazed me was that we need a "bridge". Given that these things are sold as being wireless it sets a bad precedent to have to buy another piece of hardware to get this thing to work. But then that's the rabbit hole that is Sonos, you're always buying more to get the system you want. After going through the painful setup of mashing button on devices in different rooms I got the Play: 3 working.
  • Pros: Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: No Airplay, No Line In, Setup Is Painful, So Expensive It Hurts

Sonos PLAY:3

  • 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. I had assumed that a smaller unit like this would have those things. I should have looked at the specs more closely :(.
  • 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.

Great sound, when I got one that worked

Drone One, ABT Electronics

  • Summary: I use the unit to provide sound into rooms/areas where I do not have hardwired audio. Very satisfied with this. I did have two units that were bad - the first did not work out of the box, and the second failed after about a week. Both were replaced by my retailer/installer. Third unit works fine so far. If it were not for this quality issue, I would have rated the product 4-5 stars.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality, Very Convenient Portable
  • Cons: Poor Quality control, Two Units Failed
