    BB has great reviews for this product so I felt confident purchasing them. I started assembling them and I was like these have got to be defective, as the collars that are supposed to slide down the tubes to cover the ends are impossible to move. I decided to look on Amazon for them to read some of their reviews and there it was, at least 15 negative reviews where the collars get stuck and they actually break. I got the phone number for Sanus on Amazons website as they did reach out to customers who left bad reviews. I called the number and the person I spoke to was very familiar with the issue, he said he has been telling to people to use soap and water. I told him the first one I was assembling was now stuck and it had scratched the heck out of the tube. He was very apologetic and with no questions asked said that they would overnight to me two new tubes and collars. NOW THAT IS OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE. If I do receive these as promised in two days and they assemble properly without the crazy collars getting stuck i will change my rating to a 5. If not these are going back for a refund. I attached a photo, that is where it got stuck. Notice how it is cracking from me trying so hard to get it to slide. You can also see how it scratched up the tube on the way down.

    There are better stands for the PLAY:1...

    I will start off by saying that I likely got a "lemon" as the screw plate within the speaker stand tubing of one of the stands was welded in at an angle rather than being flat, so it never really balanced on the base of the stand very well. Initially, I thought I would just put up with it rather than taking the time to disassemble the stand and return it as the other stand was okay. However, the weight of the speaker and the speaker stand tubing eventually caused the screw plate to snap at the welded joint within the tubing, thereby making the stand completely unusable. The other speaker stand was otherwise okay. The only other gripe I have is that the design of the mounting bracket looks somewhat cheap as you can see the metal L-shape going up the back of the speaker. However, most satellite speaker stands have this same design "flaw." I ended up finding another sleeker-looking speaker stand that completely hides all the wires entering the back of the PLAY:1 from a different brand. Thus, I returned these stands for a refund rather than just exchanging them for a new set.

    The fit and function of these speaker stands are phenomenal! The speakers and stands complement each other and look like they were made by the same company. You can't tell that they are an after market add-on! The packaging protected the individual components quite well. The instructions, while minimalistic, were very easy to follow. The components were easily and correctly identified in the directions and the packaging. The only reason why I gave these stands 4 stars instead of 5 was due to a bit of trouble that was encountered when trying to move the collars that go at the top and bottom of the support pole into their correct final locations. While one set moved into place quite easily, the other set would not budge after being placed onto the pole without a bit of help. This was quickly and easily overcome by gently heating up the collars with a hair dryer, expanding the plastic, and allowing for easy placement.

    Quality Product Designed Specifically for Sonos

    This is a quality product at a very reasonable price. I had been placing rear surround speakers on various pieces of furniture and could never position them exactly where I wanted them. The Sanus speaker stands designed specifically for Sonos Play 1 and Play 3 speakers solved that issue. The stands are attractive and manufactured from quality materials. The package comes with all the hardware needed to mount Play 1 and Play 3 speakers and also allows for positioning Play 3's in the horizontal or vertical position. Its nice being able to run the power cord to the speaker inside the stand tube. The speakers are stable due to the weight of the stand base.

    Surprisingly solid

    I bought these speaker stands because they said "made for Sonos" on the box and because the foot of the stand seemed less likely to attract dog hair and dust bunnies than the other options. Aside from that, I had no expectations at all, aside from "hope they clear the couch because I forgot to measure before I left for the store." When I got them home and assembled, I was really surprised at how solid they were. Assembly is quick and easy. They look good, too. I was actually glad I bought these. I did have one problem and it was quickly resolved. There are some end caps at the top and bottom to hide cords. My box came with 1 bottom end cap and 3 top end caps. I called customer service, explained the situation, and had a replacement within a few days.

    Good quality but a little bulky

    I actually bought these to use with egg-shaped KEF speakers whose stands are expensive and hard to come by. These actually worked well in that the speaker fit and was securely attached. The problem for me was that I think the supporting tube for this stand is made to accommodate a bulky plug for a Sonos speaker and so was a lot bigger around than I needed for just a simple speaker wire. Also, the color is a matte grey which probably matches a Sonos speaker great but my KEFs are glossy black. So for the intended purpose they seem well made and quite stable and I got them during a half-off promotion was I thought was a really good deal. However, for me they weren't very sleek looking, didn't match my speakers' color well enough, and I returned them.

    Great stand for my Sonos Play 3 Speakers

    I have a pair of Sonos Play 3 speakers that I purchased last year. I love them. I love the portability that you can take and move them around throughout the house within range of the Wifi. I was looking for a nice stand for these and read the reviews of Sanus speaker stand. Ordered the pair and my husband assembled them pretty easily. They have a sturdy base so I have no fear of them tipping over easily. They are great. I cannot wait to be able to use these outside on my deck this summer. They look fantastic with the Play 3's! So much better than using a folding table to set these up in rooms throughout the house. Now I just pick up the stand and take it from one room to another! Highly recommend these.

    Great Quality Speaker Stands

    I purchased these as an alternative to wall mounts, due to the location and style of my home. I am very satisfied with my selection as these stand far exceeded my expectations. Pro: sleek and stylish, with a durable design. These work excellent with sonos play model speakers. I would compare the quality to an apple product, due to the styling, durability, and packaging. Cons: the base is not adjustable. No biggie for me, as they are the perfect height for my couch. However, if your couch sits higher it may seem awkward to have the speaker below the back of the couch, as well as reduce the targeted sound level.

    I've been looking for floor stand mounts for my Sonos Play 1 speakers for a few months. Early internet searches always left me contemplating the stand model offered by Flexson. I hesitated to purchase the Flexson model since the price for them is more than I expected to/wanted to pay. Fortunately, I was searching the internet again recently and I came across the Sanus WSS2 floor stands ..... I'm happy that I did. Assembly of the product was simple and each stand seems to be a quality product. If I buy additional Sonos speakers in the future, I'll be purchasing more of these stands.

    Strong, sleek, and Sonos-specific

    My Sonos Play 1 speakers look great on a bookshelf, but I wanted to set them up in a room without bookshelves and quickly realized that speaker stands would be ideal. After reading great reviews online, I bought a pair of these Sanus speakers and couldn't be happier. They were relatively easy to put together; the only challenging step was sliding the plastic sleeves into position on either end of the metal rods. Once together, my Play 1 speakers fit perfectly on the end and are very securely held in place. The stands look great, are very strong, and are just the right height.

    I purchased the Sanus stands for Sonos Pay 1 surround sound. The materials are heavy duty/solid and the instructions were clear. While they work fine, my caution is the speakers are not screwed into the stands. They just sit on top and are held by compression/friction with the opening in the bottom of the speakers. Mine did not fit snug so I had to add tape around the insert to increase the friction/tightness of the connection. I would have preferred a screw type connection to assure the speaker holds tight to the stand.

    Good but cautious about how Play1s are mounted

    Great build quality as these stands are my second purchase of the Sanus product. In the past the mountings involved the use of a bracket that the Sonos Play 1 Speaker would mount and the bracket used the speaker screw connection to hold speaker firmly in place. New line does NOT includes this now and the speaker merely sits on a slot that the Sonos Play 1 “seats”into. Okay for my lifestyle and use. Just caution to those who might have small children or pets. Speaker can fall away from stand if urged to!

    Perfect for Sonos Play 1 Speakers

    I bought 2 of these stands to go with the 2 Sonos Play 1 speakers I bought. They are absolutely perfect and at a perfect height to go along each side of my sofa for surround sound with my vintage Fisher speakers either side of the TV. They seem balanced so they will not be knocked over very easily and have a small enough base not to be in the way of anything. Love them.

    It has the parts for any Sonos speaker, but you have to go online to request the adapter piece for the Sonos One. That was no big deal, had it within a week. My only gripe is the speaker just sits on the top (it keys in somewhat) with nothing locking it in. The base is very stable, plus the hidden wires help keep the speaker in place also. I also wish it was a touch higher, we have couches that are just slightly taller.

    Doesn’t come with proper Sonos One bracket

    Posted
    Anya

    Same model number, same package, two different brackets: Sonos One bracket (not Play:1 if you have that I’m sure it works) doesn’t exist even though salesperson provided this product when I asked. I was purchasing One’s. Sanus website have the same part number but even the installation manual shows One brackets which also work with Play:1. Summary: if you have Ones and all you see is L brackets in the box from Sanus; return them.

      Hi Anya,
      This unit was not designed with the new Sonos One in mind. That being said do not hesitate to call us at 800-359-5520. We have special adapter brackets available that we can ship to you free of charge!

    Excellent Sound System

    First heard the sound of the system at a friends business and had to immediately do some research as I couldn't believe the sound quality that was coming from the Play1 as compared to all the other small wireless sound systems. I started with buying just two Play1's and then a week later I went all in and bought two play 3's, soundbar, and submwoofer...man is the sound quality great. My next buy is the Play5 for my office. Stand is a nice add to the wireless system.

    The stand is a solid support for the speaker.

    It is a stand and does that just fine. The base is a good weight and wide enough to avoid it tipping over. The power cord is concealed in the upright support. Caution must be used to prevent the cord from being pinched under the stand. There is a slot for the cord but no factory way to hold the cord in place. A con is having to change out the brackets (provided) if you need to change the speaker orientation between vertical and horizontal.

    I bought this because I use my play 1s as a surround for my playbar and these hold up my play 1s real well. In my opinion they're just too chunky looking holding up the play 1s I didn't wanna spend too much for play3s since I have a smaller room and because they're just too expensive for what I am using them for. I would have liked it to look more sleek and streamlined but they will do since my other options via online are just too expensive.

    These are extremely easy to assemble, and they look great! They are solid and hide the wires extremely well. I definitely would recommend these to anyone with Play surround speakers. I love how the speakers behind at ear level now allow the speakers to work the way they should. Also, they come with carpet spikes for the bottom to keep them in place or rubber pads for smooth surfaces. These keep the stands stable.

    I recently purchased the pair of Sonos Play1 speakers for livingroom. For the time being, I placed one on my bookshelf and the other on a TV tray behind my sofa but as not high enough for the suggested height. So i decided to purchase the speakers stand and it made a huge difference in sounds along with my Sonos Beam for movies and music!
