    The Sonos will CHANGE YOUR LIFE

    The Sonos Wifi Stereo System has CHANGED my life. I LOVE MUSIC, music of all shapes and sizes, but MOST importantly CLEAR & CRISP music. It's a single device with an easy as pie set-up, that can be controlled from a desktop OR a mobile device and is pretty much a HUB for all your music services in one place. It's BRILLIANT. I'd take it hands down OVER ANY bluetooth device, b/c a) I can wander away as far as I want from the source and as long as the device is within wifi range, it stays connected to my Wifi Network, NOT my iPhone or iPad. THATS BRILLIANT. SO, gone are the days when the music at your home, office or gathering is interrupted by a text message, or a phone call, or even a dropout.. ITS AMAZING!!!!! I WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE!! ITS OUT-STANDING BAR NONE!

    Caution: You'll Buy More!

    My 29-year old Millennial son turned me on to my first Sonos device - a Play:3 Speaker - in the early summer of 2017. In less than a month, I had to have more and purchased a Play:1 Speaker. Now, my wife refers to me as an overgrown teenager as I gleefully blast a wide variety of my Pandora music streams throughout our 4,300 sq ft home. The simplicity of installing my Sonos Play:1 Speaker almost equals the audio quality coming from this little music maker. If you've never heard a Sonos demo at Best Buy you should do so. Make music an even bigger part of your home life.

    So guys and gals this was the start to my sonos experience. I purchased this speaker just to have access to any means of music possible in our kitchen as we often land there when home. When I say any music I really mean any music. To my surprise I could pull up all of the streaming services, my music library, and practically any radio station in the world, including my home town station from my childhood. Setup was extremely easy and the system is reliable and best of all sounds unbelievable especially with the addition of the Truplay technology. Since purchasing this I have purchased a second play1, connect amp for outdoor speakers, and playbar. I'm sure it won't stop there. This system is second to none and a complete joy to own and entertain with.

    Such a tremendous speaker

    At first, I was not sure of how it will sound because of the small size, so I have went to Best Buy and take a listen of the Play:1 at the Sonos area where you can check it out before you purchase. I was really impressed by how punchy it can be and how loud it can go. I was like "you know what, let's buy it and see how it goes". Bought it today, set it up (very simple setup), and played "Back In Black" by AC/DC via Spotify... boy, it was crystal clear! My room is sorta small, but it sounds like I own two or four speakers... I am not even kidding! I mean, this is the best speaker I have ever listened in my entire life! I own Cerwin Vega and Klipsch, this speaker is far better than these... Would buy another one and pairs the Play:1 for the better experience!

    Great for house sound

    I was interested in full and consistent sound for my entire house. I had looked into putting in wired speakers, but I've done that before and it is a lot of work and the costs add up very fast. I did some internet searches for wireless solutions and it seems that keeping multiple wireless speakers in sync is a bit of a trick. I came across the Sonos system and it seemed like a fairly simple solution. I first got a smaller Play 1 speaker for my bathroom. It worked well, had good sound, and I liked the interface, so I got a Play 3 for my kitchen. The multi-speaker controls delivered as promised, so I got a Play 5 for my living room. It has bigger sound and fills the room well. I've had the system for a bit over a month and I am enjoying it very much. The Play 1 is perfect for a small room.

    Sonos is the best

    I have been eying Sonos for over three years. I tired all kinds of other Wireless/Bluetooth Speakers and Home Theater setup. Finally I gave in and spend the extra $$$. Wow what a difference! I guess it is true, "you get what you pay for" and this Sonos System is excellent. My Setup: Livingroom: Base, Soundbar, 2x Play1 and an extra Play1 in the bedroom. PS: Play1 sounds just as good if not better then Play3. Last but not least, I ran into a few issues when I upgraded my Wireless Access Points (Wireless Router) and had to reconnect my Sonos System. I would highly recommend having a good and solid wireless network in place before you get a new Sonos Speaker. BTW, if you have a good Wifi Network there is not need for a Sonos Bridge - safes you a few bucks.

    I purchased a Sonos One as a gift and was thoroughly disappointed with how it interfered with other Alexa devices. The sound was impressive though, which influenced me to buy two play 1 speakers for myself. I have them paired in the bedroom so they are stereo. Absolutely great for streaming music from Amazon (or Dropbox using Cloudplayer). with my Echo, but sometimes tricky to get Alexa to understand that I want the song played in bedroom, not a song called "in bedroom." Sonos also just added Audible as a service, so I can play my audio books. I also started using them for my morning alarm so i wake up with music. Not terribly impressed with the Sonos app, but as far as the speakers go, i am very happy.

    The best small scale non portable speaker

    This is by far one of the best small scale speakers i’ve heard. The bass low end is poweful and completely adjustable to taste which is helpful living in an apartment. The high ends are clear and not tinny. I haven’t tested this at full volume though. The unique design has sound all around the speaker. The only slight negatives are that the speaker has to remain plugged in to a power outlet at all times so its not a portable speaker. And it does not connect through bluetooth, only WIFI. I recently started having choppy connections with my bluetooth devices so in this instance, at least for me only wifi connectivty is a plus since it never has trouble with connections. Worth the price.

    Way easier than in-ceiling speakers!

    Husband wanted ceiling speakers installed through entire house. I found a much faster, easier, less messy, less expensive way to get him continuous music from room to room without a single hole in my walls or ceiling! The software is simple to use even for "old farts" like us! I love the fact that we can take the entire system with us when we move. At present, we have installed 7 "Play:1" speakers and the "Boost" for it's own wifi. We will be adding a couple "Play:5" speakers and the "Connect" for our reciever/cd player. It's wonderful to be able to control everything from our phones, tablet, and computer as well as listening to different things in different rooms. Wish we'd had this years ago. Definitely the best "Electronics" purchase I have ever made.

    First, I'm very glad to buy Sonos Play 1. I was a little bit of skeptical whether it's that good like many great reviews. I don't have a TV set and am single to stay home listening music with a free music service like Pandora. The problem is that commercial ADs are interrupting listening music now and then, and it's not such a good experience with small speaker from my laptop. The setup was easy enough to follow and professionally tuned sound with best quality. The sound is perfect from such a small device. I'm very impressive of the sound quality! Most of all, there are tons of free music service including local and international radio service that I want to listen. Now, I'm not bored anymore, and want to stick to home with listening my favorite musics all day long! :)

    We purchased Sonos Playbar, subwoofer and 3 Play 1 s. It is so cool to have two speakers in the den and one on top of the refrigerator in the kitchen so I can hear when in the kitchen. I manage the volume from my Samsung phone and it is awesome to have these options. We were able to plug and play and the instructions were very clear and it was set up through my phone. We didn't need to have anyone install it. Very impressed with the wireless system! When we installed the subwoofer, we did notice that the Play One in the kitchen started cutting in and out due to our wireless router with Comcast. My husband connected either the play bar or the subwoofer hardwired to the router and that stopped the jitter. Plan to purchase another Play One. Love this wireless system.

    I have several Play 1s from SONOS. Some set up as surround with a Playbar and some in smaller rooms, and I highly recommend all the Sonos products I have tried...(Note, I do not have a SUB or Playbase, so no comment there...but have all the others). Especially given the compact footprint of the Play 1, the sound is quite big. Easily fills a regular sized bedroom or patio. No distortion, even at high volume. Pairs effortlessly. The app is so simple to use. But most importantly, great sound! They are expensive, but with the recent introduction of the voice-controlled (Alexa) version, the price of the regular Play one has come down a bit. Also, look for open box deals through Best Buy! You will not be disappointed.

    More controls than HomePod

    I originally bought this to see if it would be something that I could grow my entertainment system with. I quickly compared it to the HomePod and quickly realized that I had more controls available to me. I now struggle to determine if I want to use the HomePod or Sonos to play music. The only downside is that I should have bought the one with Alexa integration so I can tell it what to play. That and only that is the reason why I occasionally use the HomePod. I may be looking to sell my HomePod or place it somewhere in the house that the assistant portion would prove useful. I’ll be purchasing more Sonos equipment to expand my sound system in the near term.

    MOST AMAZING SPEAKER MUSIC SYSTEM EVER!

    This Is Much More Than A Basic speaker. It links to your wifi and smart phones and u have access to music and radio stations all over the world. You can listen to radio stations in Antarctica, Russia, or anywhere in the world! So amazing that we're gradually buying one for each room in the house. The Play 1 speaker is great for a bedroom or bathroom. Go with the bigger one for the larger rooms in the house. We actually set up 2 speakers in the family room and they link to make stereo left and right. Truly the best system I ever had.

    Buy One You Won't Regret It

    If you are looking for an amazing wireless audio system, I strongly suggest you go with the innovator of the concept. This little speaker packs amazing sound into a very compact product. The smartphone, computer, and tablet interface are all seemless. No glitches, streaming issues, or connectivity issues related to application. We have superfast cable internet, so streaming is not a problem. Sonos can't be blamed if your Internet service is slow or problematic, but if you have service that meets their recommendations, you will not be disappointed. I waited a long time to buy one as we have great stereo speakers, but having the flexibility, mobility to move these anywhere in our house and get the amazing sound that these speakers offer, traditional systems just can't compare. I will definitely be buying more.

    I purchased these Play1's to add to my WIFI SONOS System that I've been using for several years now. My Entertainment Surround Sound consists of a playbar, bass, and two Play1's. I also have a Play 3 and now two more Play 1's. The SONOS system is a superior speaker system for excellent sound. The SONOS App which is used to operate the WIFI speakers and setup is really easy to use. SONOS customer support is also the best. They will walk you thru any set up issues. The SONOS speaker system is one of the best purchases I have ever made. I'm 67 yrs old and I've bought a lot of things in that period...it's really saying a lot! You will never be dissatisfied with a SONOS speaker... I know because I own 7 now and am extremely happy with all of them.

    I own 4 other play 3's at my home, and needed a smaller speaker for an open dining room area. I decided the play 3 would be too much for an open area like that. I decided to give the play 1 a shot with the mindset that I would have to return it due to bad sound from such a small sepeaker. I was amazed from the initial opening of the package by the weight of the speaker. It was impressively heavy, so I said it might have a fighting chance of staying. I plugged her in and easily connected (just like all Sonos speakers) it, and wow! I think the placement does a huge favor with this product as I placed it in a boxed corner and the sound was as bassey as the Play 3's I have. I actually had to make sound settings to get the best possible sound.

    I had already purchased several SONOS speakers for a friend's home a while ago so I was well aware of how wonderful these devices are. I had recently moved to temporary quarters and decided to get another speaker for the condo. I went on Best Buy dot com to see if there were any "open box" units - as a senior citizen, I try to get a bargain if I can. I hoped I could purchase it online and pick it up at a nearby store. Instead of telling me that wasn't possible with open box items, it would take me to my cart, attempt to check out and fail. I finally called the 800 # and a wonderful woman helped me complete the order. The product arrived just fine a few days later and, within minutes, was streaming Pandora, Sirius/XM, Amazon Music and others. Setup is a breeze.

    My Sonos sound system is one of my favorite entertainment/home automation devices. I have speakers throughout my house and can operate everything from my phone, from my alexa, or thru home automation. My family can listen to different music in different rooms or I can tell Alexa to "Play Everywhere" and they all play the same music. The sound is awesome and they also work with most of the music streaming services. I have used a lot of different speakers and I feel that Sonos is the best. Highly recommended.

    Tried to fight the urge to simplify my audio setup and always justified it by the fact that most options offer poor sound quality and/or poorly designed control apps. Well, someone finally created a speaker that manages to sound great and has invested equally in the quality of the app that runs everything. The best part of switching to Sonos is that you are able to build and modify your setup based upon current budget and needs. I highly suggest pairing two Play:1 speakers before investing in the larger/ more expensive speakers that Sonos offers. I own all three sizes and find that the placement options of two Play:1s in stereo pair provide the best sound.
