I’ve always thought bose was the brand to go for, but then i seen this and thought lets give it a shot and i’ve not looked back since. The sound quality is unbelievable and the whole set up with the bridge was so easy. The app is very user friendly and works great if you’ve got a spotify account. I honestly wish i had bought this sooner, its great to just stick a little bit of music on while cooking in the kitchen, made so much easier with the app.
Sound quality is awesome from such a small speaker very impressed. . Not purchased from amazon as wanted it yesterday so popped to my local store and purchased one. In the box the play 1, ethernet cable (not used) and power cable which terminates in a standard uk plug (not a psu type) and is white same as the play 1. Sonos had previously emailed me to tell me the cable length is 1. 5meters but just removed it from the unit and plug socket and out with the tape measure and mine is 1. 9mtr (75″) go figurefor set-up i had preloaded the app and within 5 minutes had music playing via the iphone, now to get the synology media server to work with it. . Quick search on the sonos web site told me what i needed to do, i downloaded the pc app followed the clear instructions and found the media server entered my servers password and away it went. Seemed strange to be upstairs and hearing the music playing downstairs.
Great product – credit to sonos. Finally a sub-£200 sonos unit that helps me think about those rooms where a play:3 or play:5 would be too expensive to justify and not have to use cheaper speaker docs etc. The unit sounds fantastic – i doubt they’ll sell many play:3’s now. I have a play:5 that i’m actually thinking of selling to fund 2x play:1’s as i think that having more stereo separation in a room is better than the extra bass you get from the play:5 over the play:1.
Fantastic sound and build quality. Having recently got rid of hundreds of cds i was on the look out for a network streaming system and went for the play:1, having had a good listen to various (mostly far more expensive) alternatives at richer sounds. First impressions on opening the box are that you’ve bought into a top quality brand, the packaging is great and the speaker is wrapped in a cotton bag to ensure it arrives scratch free. I know this is almost irrelevant to the product itself but does build confidence in sonos’s determination to deliver quality. In addition to the speaker the box contains a very neat power cable with a custom plug that sits securely in the base of the unit (more attention to detail), a flat profile ethernet cable, a cd-rom of software and a brochure. The speaker itself is impressively solid and surprisingly heavy, they’ve obviously packed it tight with goodness. I just have a single unit, so i plugged this into my network via a home plug adaptor and downloaded the software to my android tablet. Connecting the tablet to the play:1 was as simple as pressing both buttons on the unit and waiting for about 5 seconds for the connection to be established. We were then good to go for internet radio and streaming services but i had some trouble getting connected to my nas drive where my music is stored. In the end i solved this by installing the software on my pc and populating the catalogue from there, although i think i might now have figured out how to do it from android.
- Great sound quality form a little speaker.
- Definitely worth the price
- The main disappointment for me with the Sonos product is that the
- Great product – credit to Sonos

Worth every penny spent and with deezer free for a year, sonos is worth buying for this alone. Bought 2 play 1’s and set up as a stereo pair and the sound is incredible. Really want a sub now to bring it all together although on their own the bass and treble range is amazing. Don’t look anywhere else for wireless speakers.
I held off buying a sonos for a long time as i wanted to be certain it woulda. Have the desired sound qualityb. Be able to play music whilst my laptop was offi can say that i am extremely impressed on point a and am writing this review to help others if they want to achieve point b. Let’s get the necessary bits out of the way. The app on your pc or phone works well and it took no time at all to sync the laptop and all my music on there to the sonos. Its a small unit but packs a punch. It links to deezer, spotify etc (you need premium accounts with those to stream via the sonos though). It has a huge array of internet radio stations as well which are great.
Got 2 play 1’s for christmas. After a few teething troubles, and an issue connecting to spotify, its up and running. Great sound quality for a small speaker and the option to listen to different music from each speaker is amazing. Would i recommend it?hell yeah.
