    Great Versatile WiFi speaker

    The setup can be very simple or very involved. The speaker can be set up as mono or one side of stereo. Our set up is rather involved with the Sonos Hub. We use a pair of Sonos 1 speakers as rear stereo speakers for our basement system. No audio wires and you can easily move the speakers around - great. The audio can be tailored to our listening preferences. We also have multiple speakers set up as stand alone mono speakers that can be moved anywhere in the house or out on the deck We can individually control each speaker. We can add, delete or move a speaker to an audio group. Each group can play a different audio source. The Sonos 1 speaker is adequate, but you would want the Sonos SubWoofer for your serious listening system. I replaced my Bose system with the Sonos soundbar, subwoofer and two Sonos 1 speakers for the rear. Much better sound. All Sonos components are a little expensive, but you won't be disappointed.

    Sonos is the sole of our home!

    We have 7 Sonos speakers. We use them as alarms in the morning, throughout the house during the day and especially enjoy hearing new music another family member likes. Mom wakes up to a streaming Billy Joel or similar station and has a Five Finger Death Punch station jacked up loud in the work out room. Son is going through an awkward rap stage which thankfully is limited to his bedroom sonos. Kids time shower lengths to song lengths from bathroom Sonos. Daughter plays a mean air guitar (on a wooden spoon) to multiple tunes in the kitchen between putting cookies in the oven. Meal time kitchen to dining room to living room sounds seamlessly follows and syncs as if we are wearing earphones from room to room. Sometimes we sync all together - sometimes we have multiple different. Sounds quality, syncing and just overall fun - cannot beat Sonos!

    ...to fill my home with music. I added two more of these Sonos: Play 1 speakers to extend my music network further. These are in an office and are set up as a stereo pair, but Play 1 can also work as a single speaker. They joined my home network of 6 Sonos speakers that includes a portable, other pairs of speakers, and Connect boxes that add my existing speakers into the mix. Music streams all together or they can stream different sounds in different rooms. The Sonos mesh network reaches from basement through second story with no lag. Streams from different music services like Rhapsody or Spotify or from my own network drive, which includes music and audio books. The Sonos system is great! I purchased the speakers online and they were ready for same day pickup from an efficient and friendly employee. Sonos and Best Buy: good experience!

    We used to always have Bose speakers, however we will never go back after purchasing products from Best Buy/Sonos. The speakers are extremely easy to set up and sound amazing. We are using them for both our surround sound and for additional speakers in other rooms. We thought about getting the play 5, however we really didn't want to have that big of a speaker if we didn't have to. We were told that if we didn't like them and decided on the larger speaker later we could exchange, but for us there was no reason to. Works great with the app on your phone. The only issue for us is one of the local radio stations that we frequently listen to is listed in the app, but it states that it is "unable to play the radio station" so we aren't sure if it is a Sonos issue or the stations issue.

    This wireless speaker is truly amazing. My husband is a sucker for good sound, whether it be music or our tv. We bought this on cyber monday and couldn't be happier. We bought it to have music in our mid-sized living/dining room area and it seriously sounds like you're at a concert. We were listening to it last night on the couch and were in awe at the quality. Very easy ti set up and pair with your phone, and I'm sure we'll buy another one in the future. My only knock is that you can't stream just anything from your phone, it has to be via the channels/apps on the Sonos app. I didn't expect that, so for instance, I wanted to stream a song from YouTube and that is not a compatible app for the Sonos app. We synced our pandora, amazon music and spotify accounts. Also, beware that you have to have a premium spotify account for it to work with this speaker.

    Warning, this speaker is much like your favorite donuts, you cannot stop with just one! I have been a Squeezebox user for many years and Sonos just seemed too expensive. The introduction of the Play 1 changed that. The special short term deal for a free bridge sent me to take a listen. I was amazed by the sound from such a small speaker. Now I have paired two for stereo and they fill even a large room with great sound. The bass and treble, separately adjustable for each speaker, and balance are adjustable from the app for custom sound. Even the wifi frequency is adjustable although the network does not interfere with any 2.4 Ghz devices. The setup was very easy for pairing and the app allows not only streaming from your favorite stations but allows placing your selections in a queue to stream flawlessly for hours. There are not enough stars available to rate the enjoyment from this wonderful product!

    I had bought 2 SONOS ONE speakers to start with in my livingroom as a paired stereo. I then wanted to expand and went with the SONOS PLAY 3 for our 4 season patio room. After having it for the weekend, I soon found myself 2nd guessing my purchase. I did some more research and I found that it would be better to have another pair of PLAY 1's for the fact of them handling humidity better than the PLAY 3. There was also the fear of me thinking the two PLAY 1's would sound better as well. My instincts were right, they definitely had more to offer than the one PLAY 3. I read how the bass was so much better and that's why I took that route 1st. (Not that big of a difference) So if you're trying to make the same decision, just get the pair of PLAY 1's or ONE's and use them as a Stereo pair.

    I purchased the sound bar and woofer. The sound was so GOOD that I decided to purchase two play 3s to complete the surround sound. Every body who looks at TV in the family turns their heads trying to figure out where sounds come from. It's funny. The system picks up sounds from movies and TV that you don't realize are there. The sound of the speakers is really GOOD! The app is the best. You can speakers to any room at any time to expand your listening experience. Look at me sounding like an advertisement...Lol! I just really like the system. I have 10 speakers from the play 1 - play 5 along with the bar and woofer. Whenever I see a open box I pick it up. I purchased these over a 2 year period. It's easy to hook up and connect speakers. They sound Great outside too! You can't go wrong with Sonos.

    Received a play 3 for xmas last year and decided we liked it enough to get more. We purchased two play 1's and paired them and could not believe the stereo sound coming out of them. Sonos is working on voice activation and I hope they come up with a way to make some kind of device to allow the current series to be voice activated. HIGHLY Recommend this brand over Bose b/c of the wifi access and you do not need to Bluetooth them which can be a hassle if you still have a flip phone. App easy to use and allows for streaming on multiple stations in multiple rooms. Recommend upgrading your remote so you can use one remote for everything if you have not already and getting a playbar. Would recommend to anyone considering this type of audio device. Easy to install, use, and play.

    Amazing sound for such a small speaker

    I bought this about a month ago because O really enjoy listening to music from my phone. Setup and configuration was a breeze, and the app is a free download. Speaking of the app... the spotify version on the sonos app is so far removed from their actual app, it is borderline frustrating to use. However, the sound quality more than makes up for it. Never would I have thought I could get the clarity PLUS a really good basstone from a small digital speaker. My father, who is an old school audiophile, was stunned by it as well. Will it replace your already wired system? Probably not, but that is why they have all of the other speakers and conversion methods to allow even those to be controlled through your sonos app. I definitely recommend it if you are looking for ease of use, enjoy using apps like Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, to name a few, and a great feeling of getting what you paid for.

    There's not much for me to say that hasn't already been said. I bought a 2nd Play 1 to sterro pair with a Play 1 I already had. I plan to add the Subwoofer to them in the future. While you can't really compare these to Martin Logan, Def Tech, or Klipsch, for their size and the fact that they're wireless, you can't beat their sound quality. Additionally, while they are a little pricey, when you include all the features and services available, they are actually a pretty good deal. I have been using various Sonos products for years. The only issue I have ever had was when I hooked them up via my wifi network. Sometimes different players or devices would disappear. Once I hardwired one device to my network and used Sonos' proprietary network, it has been rock solid. I highly recommend Sonos in general and Play 1s in specific.

    I've been holding off on getting on the Sonos bandwagon, but I was bored one weekend and wanted to add some speakers in our condo so we could hear music in any/every room. The speakers are super easy to setup and the app interface is easy to use allowing for you to play the same music throughout your house or different music in each room where there is a Sonos speaker. No cabling needed through the walls or Ethernet cable connected to the speakers (except it helps to have it next to your router on initial setup), all you need is power to each speaker where they will finally be placed in your house. You'll need a decent WiFi connection where your speaker is to stream the music too. Great quality for such a small speaker too. What are you waiting for? Go get yours!

    I was looking for a solution for a home sound system that I could use to stream SiriusXM off my iPhone at home synchronized in multiple rooms. This is exactly what I was looking for. I am technology challenged, but the set up was super easy. The app I downloaded on my iPhone to use the system is easy. I love the sound. I recently had someone over to the house and when we walked in the door I turned on the system and she said "Wait! Did you just do that with your PHONE??" It's super convenient. I'm continually adding speakers to this system in various rooms. The sound is rich even at higher volumes. I have NOT yet tried it outside in my backyard so I can't speak to the range that it has with regards to the wireless bridge. All in all I'm extremely satisfied with this product and it was worth the money.

    I got into Sonos because I wanted a speaker in my bathroom. I ended up putting it in the kitchen so I bought another one for the bathroom. That one ended up in my bedroom. Well now I've got a pair that covers a good portion of the house. A Play 5 sure would sound nice in the living room to round it out. Ah yes and certainly there could be some more bass so I'll get the woofer. So what I'm trying to say here is that 1 speaker purchase turned into a whole system essentially and has the room to keep growing. They sound awesome, function very well and I love being able to start things like Pandora and whatever and not need to have a computer open. 5 stars all around on these speakers. Eventually I'll get that bathroom speaker....probably after the soundbar.

    At first I wasn't impressed with the sound the speaker was providing. I added this and another one to my sonos soundbar and other than music and sounds (water dripping and such) I really didn't feel they were making a difference as loudness and voice clarity. I purchased both during the Black Friday sale so I didn't have time to talk to anyone at Best Buy as I wanted to be in and out. Luckily I work right by the sonos store and talked to someone there and he told me to up the ambient sound. I did and got exactly what I wanted. Now anytime someone comes over and I'm watching sports or an action movie they get startled by the speakers as they don't notice them due to their convenient size and placement. I just purchased the subwoofer so I have now completed the surround system. Just in time for the playoffs. Satisfied consumer right here and got them on sale.

    Our household belief is that music makes most things better & this Sonos speaker supports that position! We've been using it for about 3 months and currently only have one of these speakers (but as I understand, you can have multiple speakers and control different aduio playing on different speakers at the same time through zoning on the Sonos app). It was a breeze to set up & the auto-tune feature ensures the sound quality is maximized for the specific location. (We placed ours in the kitchen.) The sound quality is good & reliable for different genres of music. It is a sleek and attractive looking addition to our counter top. It's effortless to stream music through the Sonos app & each smartphone linked through the App can see & control what's playing. I've even figured out how I can stream news shows in the morning! I would definitely recommend this speaker.

    If you want high quality music throughout your home, this is the product. The small speakers put out amazing sound for their size. You can control the entire system from your smartphone and/or computer. You must have a home wireless network for it to work. Each speaker has to be plugged into 110V power. Your music choices are what is on your computer or phone, and many internet radio stations that are programmed into the system. This includes Pandora and local stations. If you want to play CD, tapes, or records from your existing music system you have to purchase a separate Sonos device to connect your receiver to the Sonos system. For CDs the best way is to rip them to your computer where Sonos can access them. You can group speakers if you want the same output in multiple rooms or play different music in each room. Even when they are grouped you can vary the volume in each room. This is really a good system.

    I have always felt that the problem with home theater systems is the complexity of installation as well as the wiring involved. When the Sonos system became available, of course I was interested. Rather than making the whole investment, I decided to buy speakers piece by piece and slowly build up a system. The smaller speaker sounded okay at the Best Buy store. However, at my house, in the foyer, as a standalone unit, wow! It filled the space beautifully to the point in which it was difficult to pinpoint the exact source of sound. Another unit was purchased and placed in the bathroom. Absolutely fantastic. Set up was a breeze, truly, not lying. The unit to me seems high quality, is heavy, and the sound is perfect for what I'm looking for. I cannot wait to complete my whole home theater system including the sound bar and the subwoofer. Highly recommend it, you will not be disappointed.

    I love my Sonos system. Bought Play 5 and 2 Play 1's. Lightning took out our surround system that was built into the house and I didn't want to spend to replace that. Great sound through all speakers, very easy to setup, app runs from both my and my wife's iPhone, iPads, or macbook. Had a friend come over and they downloaded the app to their iPhone, ended up listening to their music also. Favorite part, app gets us every single radio station in the country. Couldn't be happier with this product. Possibly thinking about adding the play bar and controller in the near future. I love that you can just piece the system together as the components can add up quick when buying all at once. Get started with a Play 5, then add 1's along the way. I didn't feel the need for the Play 3 as the Play 1 puts out good enough sound on it's own. Definitely need the Play 5 for better bass and louder for outside.

    I was originally looking for some computer speakers. Then after some research and trying some Bose speakers. I finally decided to try these Sonos, and I am glad that I did. They work perfectly for my home office. When I say they, I bought a pair and made them stereo with L and R. They totally fill my room (350 square feet), the sound is crisp with a good balance of mids and highs, bass is not too bad, but I think I will add the sub. That’s the other cool thing about these, is that you could add other pieces to it and could end up with a 5.1 surround system that’s completely wireless. I would recommend these to anyone.
