Sonos Play:1 Smart Wireless Speaker, Black (play1uk1blk) 46

Review for smart wireless speaker

Price was £149.00. I have two bose docking systems, one was portable using bluetooth and the other a docking station for the ipod. I was looking to get a wireless system and thought i would take the plunge on getting this sonos system. Once plugged in and i got set up(which was so easy)using the app on my phone, again this was easy, the sound quality was amazing and i would say slightly better than my bose systems. Overall, i like the sound and how portable it is, as long as you have a socket near by and i have mine on top of a book case, so the sound is positioned well. Its well worth the money and would highly recommend and i am thinking of getting another one to put in another room.

Introduction

Had this for just over a week now, which i bought alongside the play bar and sub woofer to replace my ageing onkyo wired surround system. The difference is sound quality is amazing. Really rich and deep. Hearing much more than i did before, both when watching tv and listening to music. Set up was a breeze using the app on my ipad. Really impressed with the quality of not just the set up and sound but also the build quality. Yes, it's not cheap, but you really do get what you pay for. I've been so impressed with the sonos experience, i've since gone on to buy a play 5 for the kitchen/garden room and a play 3 for the bedroom, to replace the b&w a7 and a5 that i had in these rooms. Whilst the b&w speakers are excellent, i think the sound quality and the fact that you're not limited to only airplay to one speaker definitely gives sonos the edge. Highly recommended. The Best smart wireless speaker ( Nov 2019 ) | Sonos-Consumer Electronics Review Bonus SONOS PLAY:1 Smart Wireless Speaker, Black Mini: fits in any space, fills any room. Rich sound despite its size.

Sonos Play:1 Smart Wireless Speaker, Black Review (play1uk1blk)

I uploaded all my cds to an external hard drive and connected it to my router so i have access to all my physical music through my 2 sonos speakers(paired as stereo). Additionally, i listen to the radio via tunein and access spotify all using the sonos app which i have on my tablet, phone and laptop. It couldn't be easier. Granted, setting up the speaker by walking round the lounge, oscillating the tablet from floor to ceiling left me feeling like a shaman trying to sage smudge evil from the house, but it was worth it in the end for the great sound generated by these compact speakers. I love them. -H. Bertie

Sonos Play Smart Wireless Speaker Black Ce

PROS
  • Awesome. Has revolutionised how we listen to music and we have listen to a lot more music since we got this. We've gone on to buy another 2 play 1's and love the multi room and radio functionality. We now store all our music on a usb stick plugged into our wi-fi router and the sonos just reads it over our wifi as our music library. Almost bought a media server but so glad i didn't! stunning sound quality from something so small (although it is reassuringly heavy). The play 1 sounds great on it's own, i can't see any need for the play 3 or 5 if you're using it at home in a normal size room. The only thing i will say is that they sound even more impressive if you have two play 1's configured as a stereo pair. We have done this in our 40 foot living/kitchen/dining room and they sound brilliant. I would recommend trying a pair of play 1's over a single play 3 or play 5 any day!
  • Excellent product, delivered next day. Perfect sound at even high volumes - no ideas of the output but certainly loud enough. A doddle to configure and set up then there is the job of pairing it with music to play. Upside - loads - downside - could do with better set up instructions for a first timer. Will be buying another one and also a play 3 for other rooms. The sound is incredible.
CONS
  • I really dont rate the sound quality. Maybe its good if you had a few at ear level
  • Awful. Over-hyped. Extremely disappointed. Does not connect. Crap customer service. Doesn't play youtube unless you want to pay. Just buy something else instead. It's just easier.
  • The sonos is a compact unit and plays loudly without much distortion. However it lacks treble and has too much bass. The tone controls do not do enough to compensate in this respect. I have seen web reviews in which the reviewer was knocked out at the flatness of the frequency response of the play 1 and compared it to speakers costing thousands. Phoeey. That is very misleading because the play 1 is not going to beat a speaker costsing hundreds of pounds never mind thousands. . I have got a lot of these play 1s (in almost every room including the bathroom). My mother is elderly and her hearing is not the finest it's ever been. However she loves listening to crooners (frank sinatra), opera (pavarotti) and any mellow music so these rather-dull bass-heavy speakers are just fine for her. The wifi control allows me to play music wherever she wander in the house. . As an aside, sonos is a total lock-in operation and if you don't have digital music files then you will have to pay for a streaming music subscription. I don't really count the tunein radio option as a source of music. This shouldn't be the case in this day and age but sonos have maintained an iron grip on their installations although there is a 3rd party app which is said to break this restriction and although i am tempted i haven't used it. . I bought most of these play 1s on a christmas offer of 149 but the normal price is a hard-to-swallow 169. In feb 2017 they have gone to 199 which is too much and i expect few sales except to the sonos fans as there are competing systems which may not be quite as good but which are a great deal cheaper.

smart wireless speaker SONOS PLAY:1 Smart Wireless Speaker, Black (Switch to Mobile/Desktop Version)

I toyed with the idea of buying sonos speakers for ages, before finally taking the leap during black friday, when they had 30 off. . I got them and couldn't wait to set them up. Firstly they are super easy to set up. I just took them out of the box, connected the power lead and plugged them in. The box comes with a quick start guide and after downloading the sonos app i followed the instructions and had both speakers set up in about 10 minutes. . Second thing to notice is the sound quality. Wow. They are absolutely great. I also like that in the app i can adjust the bass - my friend has a portable bose speaker and its completely unadjustable which i don't like as myself i don't like too much base and am always conscious of how it sounds to my neighbours as well. . Thirdly they look great. I got them in white and they blend into my living room so well, which is very modern and white. . I have set these up in my living room as left and right speakers. I am now definitely going to buy the playbar and connect this all up as surround sound for my tv. Fantastic! so glad i got them.

Sonos Play:1 Smart Wireless Speaker, Black
Click to see NoticeSonos Play:1 Smart Wireless Speaker, Black (play1uk1blk)"I've had all my music ripped for years and having recently made the move to spotify in favour of buying cds, i needed something that would allow me to connect to all my ripped music that i ve uploaded to google play music as well as spotify and my online store auto-rip music. Bluetooth speakers are ok but they are limited and sonos takes it to another level altogether with their wi-fi speakers. . I bought two play 1's and when paired together in stereo mode you more or less have the sound quality equivalent to that of a good mid-range amplifier and speaker setup. I ve been using my speakers for four months and unlike with bluetooth, i ve not had a single dropout. Music is seamlessly streamed over my wi-fi and it sounds fabulously clear. . They re heavy and very well built and they ooze quality and understated style, with some basic control buttons on top of each speaker. There is no 3. 5mm input and it does not have bluetooth functionality. Setup is straightforward and it s all done via the recently overhauled app. . There are lots of music services available to add. Online store music, google play music, spotify, apple music, deezer, tidal, tunein radio and loads more that i've never heard of. The ones i use integrate perfectly. . The app is easy and intuitive to use and when installed on a device it acts like a remote control. It allows you to add 'favourites' (playlists, songs, radio stations, artists, etc), control room settings if you have multiple sonos speakers, adjust the eq, add or remove services, set alarms and all sorts of other things that you can tailor to your exact personal preference. Both the apple and android apps occasionally lag. I can also control my speakers from my windows 10 pc. . Finding and playing back music is a breeze. If i search for an artist, album, track, etc it shows results from the various providers i ve added (google play music, online store music and spotify) as well as from my network attached storage (when it s switched on) and the particular device i m using. I can then add tracks from all of those sources into a playlist if i want and the speakers play it back seamlessly. . Sonos are going to face competition from apple and google with their forthcoming wi-fi speakers but in the meantime, i highly recommend the sonos play 1 speakers. . Update 18/10/17: online store alexa - it is now possible to connect sonos speakers wirelessly to an online store echo or echo dot, albeit with limited functionality."

(0) Question: Is the power cord 1. 5 or 2 metres long?


(1) Question: To pair a sonos play one to a sonos play 5 do you need a bridge


(2) Question: Do you need to leave your iphone in the same room as the speaker for it to work?

The F.A.Q. for sonos play:1 smart wireless speaker, black

I'm relatively new to the streaming world of sonos, having bought my first play 1 only a few weeks ago. But because it's so good at streaming music into my kitchen, i just had to buy another so that i could also stream music into my hall - who knows, i might even buy a third for my bedroom, such is the streaming splendour of sonos. . The pros: it's an aesthetic hit thanks to its understated black and grey colour scheme and its sleak, almost cylindrical shape - a shape, i'm pleased to say, that makes it easy to place the play 1 in a corner; it streams radio paradise flawlessly via tunein radio, as it similarly does when streaming flac audio files from my nas (there's a slight snag, however; see below); grouping speakers results in perfect timing during playback with no lag between one speaker and the other; and, perhaps most important of all, the speakers sound pretty good considering their diminutive size. In my particular case, however, i found that the speakers sound best when the bass is turned down a tad, which can be done with ease thanks to the accompanying sonos app, which is pretty sleak itself, and also when the speakers are mounted on stands to give the resulting sound room to breathe, as it were. For what it's worth, i use flexson desk stands as they're just as sleak as the speakers themselves and fulfil this function, sonic breathability, pretty much perfectly. . The cons: the vertical dispersion isn't great, so the speakers only sound at their best when they're at ear height and perhaps a bit higher; gapless playback isn't supported - at least, not when the speakers are streaming audio from my nas. This means that when playing a live concert album, for example, there's a brief break between tracks; the play 1, and presumably other sonos speakers, doesn't stream audio files greater than 16/48. This means that if, like me, you have lots of hi-res audio files on your nas, you'll either need to convert them to a supported sample rate beforehand - 16/44 or 16/48, depending on which is the most natural fit according to the original sample rate - or downsample and push them to the speaker on the fly as the play 1 simply can't and/ or won't pull them across your network for playback all by itself. I use my synology nas's audio app, ds audio station, to downsample and push hi-res audio to my sonos speakers on the fly, but it's a bit clunky in operation compared to the super smooth experience you get when the sonos is doing the actual streaming. . In summary, if sonos were to add gapless playback and support for hi-res audio files to all the things the play 1 does so well, it would make it the perfect mini streaming speaker. As it is, however, and i say this with all due respect and sincerity, it's almost perfect! . . Edit: it turns out that the play 1 can indeed stream gapless audio from my nas when the speaker is doing the streaming; it's when audio is pushed to the play 1 via ds audio station that playback isn't gapless. I guess that brings my overall rating of the play 1 up to 4. 5/5 :)

Best sonos play:1 smart wireless speaker, black (play1uk1blk) in review

I bought one of these for the kids bedroom - i've already got a play 3 in the kitchen. For a small speaker this sounds really good - much better than the cd player it replaced, which was about 3 times larger - and it's certainly good enough for the kids. They had it turned up a little loud for a 'play disco' and it kept itself together well. I've shown them how to use the sonos app on our tablet and they understand it and can control it themselves - so quite literally "even a 5-year-old can use it" - although they still haven't got their heads around "where are the cds? " and "where is the music actually coming from? ". :). . I had some dropout problems with this and the play 3 over christmas but solved it by configuring my wifi router to use a specific (better) channel - no more problems and the whole system is now working without any issues. Looks pretty good too.

. Cathy, Arizona says

I simply love these. I have a particular affection for anything that i don't fully understand, because i am not particularly techy, and such things as speakers that apparently support a measure of memory impress me deeply. Seriously, though, the sound quality is excellent, they are sexily unobtrusive (i have four, currently awaiting delivery of a fifth) and work easily from my laptops. Pads, i find, tend to write their own rules, but that is an issue with the pad and not the system. Difficulties i experienced in that department were ironed out for me by sonos. They are very, very helpful with any issues and i was guided expertly where i needed it. They can either pair up into stereo or work individually and i suspect i shall end up with about eight of these things!

L. Reed, Thurrock

From the moment you start opening the box you realise that this is a high quality product - the weight of the unit is a clue to how well made it is, and the classy packaging is very 'apple'. . Setup is extremely straightforward - the simple instructions take you through the setup in about 4 easy steps. And once setup it just works! . . I purchased a pair of these to use a stereo pair, and now my wife wants more for other locations around the house. I copied all my music to google play and this makes a great combination - all your music is on tap, without the need for your own server or pc switched on - and all controlled from a smartphone. . Are there any drawbacks? the only snag i have hit so far is that it won't play some of the tracks i have downloaded from itunes due to drm, but that is not really a fault with sonos. . Overall i would recommend this to anyone who wants a convenient wireless music system. The quality is good, and it doesn't look out of place in the living room. . I am now saving up for the sonos playbar .

P. Rochelle, Blackburn with Darwen says

I can't say much about this that hasn't already been said. It's a fantastic little speaker and the sound reproduction is excellent for something so small. . I came by the sonos play 1 after using a sonos connect to allow me to push digital music through my existing hi-fi system. I thought i'd go for an additional sonos speaker so that i could listen to music in another room. . It's all controlled by an app you can run on your computer or phone. I'm informed that you can now stream music from some sources (such as online store prime music) but i don't use that myself. And it can all be done wirelessly.

. Irene, California

Dont normally write product reviews but had to on this occasion. Your read about the sonos speakers and it all says what a great speaker they are. Well i am very sceptical and read them all with a pinch of salt. Eventually i took the plunge at got one. As the youth say, omg. This speaker is unbelievable. Its not a massive speaker to look at but the sound it kicks out is amazing. My house is open plan and this speaker easily fills the room. So much so, i've not had it over 70% as the neighbours would kill me. I like my rock music and this speaker can cope with all of it without breaking sweet. I also like chilling out listening to old style music like andy williams and matt monroe (yes i am that old fart). This speaker makes it sound like they are actually in the room with you giving a private concert all be it they have been dead for some time. If your thinking about getting a speaker but on the fence about which one to get, get a sonos. Im so pleased, im getting some more and i hate spending my money.

T. Courtney, Doncaster says

This is brilliant. My only quibble is that uk members of online store prime are still unable to stream online store prime music on the sonos. It does seem slightly ironic that online store are happy to distribute the sonos but seem very slow to provide support. Hopefully online store will resolve this at some stage soon?

Z. Erickson, Surrey

Read the positive reviews. Wait for a drop in price by 10-20 pounds (it comes around regularly) and then buy one.

O. Carol, Southend-on-Sea says

Now that the price has been reduced it's easy to recommend these as decent value. They are well built, the sound is pretty good (although no real low-end of course, and the top end is a little muted) and the sonos software is getting better all the time. . I do find it rather baffling that you can now get a pair of play1 speakers for much less than the price of the "connect" device which plugs into a conventional hifi (which to me seems like it should cost a lot less). These speakers also lack any connectivity which might allow you to adapt them to anything other than sonos' world (no bluetooth, analogue connections etc). It feels like the pricing structure and specification are designed to lock you into the sonos ecosystem - which reminds me a lot of why i don't buy apple products.

S. Olga, Havering

This is an amazing gadget, so easy to set up, great sound and really does replace a bulky stereo. I now have 4 of these scattered around the house and the flexibility is one of the biggest selling points. I have a pair of these speakers in the lounge which are paired to give stereo sound, i have one in the kitchen and one in the bedroom. . We use spotify as a source for the music but there are plenty of other options. This means we can have the same music coming out of every speaker or if we wish different music from every speaker. You can also use these to listen to the radio as most national and local radio stations have a digital version. . You can even use them as an alarm clock to wake you up in the morning with some gentle tunes.

R. Paula, New Jersey says

Often gadgets don't live up to expectations and ever-so-rarely they exceed them. This little unit has exceeded expectations. Sound is good with a full range and nice bass end. Perfectly good for most people except picky audiophiles or if you wanted dedicated hi-fi speakers. . Set up of the app was not without a couple of hassles - i think they just happened to have released an update when i bought it. But otherwise, the app itself, which had been a worry of mine - maybe locking you in to only paid subscriptions? nope, it's been far better than expected. Plays music off your own phone library. Girlfriend got her favorite radio station playing through it for free. . Just a great little unit. Love it.

X. Kathlene, Louisiana

I received my play 1 speaker yesterday, and i am very impressed. . Setup of the speaker was very easy, but be warned. If, like me, you are using an ios device for the initial setup, and are on a different wifi network to the one setup wants to attach the speaker to, you may well have issues. I'll explain- i have a wifi booster in my house, as my router is in a corner of t he house. The router is on 5ghz, and the wifi booster adds a 2ghz network to it also- so i have 5 and 2 ghz wifi networks. My iphone 6 was attached to the 5ghz, and not the 2ghz, whereas setup wanted to add the speaker to the 2ghz. It wouldn't join the network until i also put my iphone onto the same wifi network. . Anyway, after that, all good. Lots of other reviews have covered the amazing features, which i completely agree with. I just wanted to let people have a heads up.

W. Nielsen, Haringey says

Its all been said before. This is our fifth sonos node. Now streaming online store prime music and radio all over the house. Our system is rock solid and we boss it with iphones and android phones. Cant imaging life without it. This little speaker fills a small room but anything bigger than about 3mx3m really needs a play 3.

. Imelda, Bury says

This was a present for my husband and he was delighted with it. 3 months later and i think it's his favourite gadget! we have it in our open plan living room/kitchen/diner and the sound is very clear and more than adequate for our needs. It has exceeded my expectations. It is also far superior to a small battery powered wireless speaker that we have, which is only used for holidays.

. Meyer, Bedfordshire

These are fantastic little speakers and in my opinion very much the unsung heroes of the sonos range. They have become great value since the new voice controlled ones came out (me. Not interested). . They work well as single speakers for say a kitchen or background music. But the real secret to the best of their capabilities is to use 2 to create a stereo pair and then the scale, volume and sound staging comes alive to give a sound akin to a decent budget to mid hifi system. They are so compact they will go almost anywhere, but the flexson floor stands are good if you are serious about getting the best position and sound from them as a pair. . We have a pair that we use as rear speakers for a sonos playbase and they are fantastic there, really adding to the surround ambience. Of course we can stream music through them as normal when not using the tv. We have another stereo pair elsewhere for music alone. . I recently set up a pair for my elderly parents and they are thrilled with the unobtrusive nature of the speakers, the sound and ease of use when music is streamed off their ipad.

C. Anonymous, Durham says

I bought one, use it so much i bought a second. These play:1s are powerful enough to fill a room though if you are crazy serious about music you will want a couple at least and maybe buy play:3s instead. . It's great to be able to control the music in your whole home with your phone. It integrates with spotify to access streaming music and also tunein radio so you can listen to most radio stations worldwide.

N. Wells, Nord-Pas-de-Calais

My first introduction into the world of sonos and i really can't believe it's taken me this long to get on-board! after looking for a small airplay/bluetooth speaker for my bedroom, i figured i would give this a shot. At this price point you can get a lot of speakers, but i can tell you they will be worse sounding and not as sturdy or well built. The sonos unit also has the bonus feature of being able to grow your collection of speakers over time and having the inter-connectivity that others don't. . The sound from this speaker is well balanced and has a lovely warm feel to it. I liked it so much, i bought a second one to use in a twin-pair for stereo sound. Now i have a speaker either side of the bed and have double the pleasure!

B. Melissa, Manitoba says

Absolutely love this product. The sonos sound system as a whole is brilliant. We initially started with the sound bar to add the much needed volume to our lg tv as it was difficult to watch movies due to the lack of sound - no longer a problem with a sonos! we recently added the speaker as a further speaker around the house (letting me listen to music whilst the other half watches tv). All sonos products can be linked to play the same thing; which has been brilliant when watching tv - a quick shift about from upstairs and a stand alone speaker becomes a brilliant surround sound system which can be operated directly from your smart phone app!

Q. Guest, Languedoc-Roussillon

Having been an avid fan of bose for many years, i decided to try the sonos system for a change, and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality and power of such a small unit. Getting the unit logged onto my home wifi was simple and literally took seconds. Each speaker can be personally or automatically adjusted for the room and its size. I've downloaded the "app" for my iphone and a friends android, both are similar in operation, but personally i find them slightly cumbersome to use. It located my music folders which were stored on a nas unit and plays them without any problem. The only query so far, which to be fair is probably due to my own error, is it wont play or recognise any itunes playlists created by myself ? apart from this minor inconvenience which as i mentioned is probably due to my own misunderstandings, its a brilliant unit and well worth the money without the bose price tag !

J. Emily, Virginia says

Deliberated over this for ages and then went for it based on recommendations from friends. Absolutely delighted with it and have since gifted one as a wedding present for someone else too - sharing the sonos joy!

. Jackson, Westminster

This speaker is amazing, it really is, . . So i ordered the speaker and it was delivered next day, set up was so easy just plug it in and download the sonos app then follow the instructions, set up and connection to my wi-fi took about 3 mins to complete, next the room tune in if you have an iphone you get to tune the room to the speaker it took a couple of mins to walk around and the speaker was set to the room. . First up i linked my spotify account to the sonos again very easy, set a play list going, then linked google and apple to the sonos, then linked tunein and set up my favourite radio stations up bbc 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, then my podcasts, the archers, money box, all this via tunein and whilst my spotify playlist was playing on the speaker. . All without a problem. . Now the sound is amazing it really is the bass is very rich for such a small speaker, on playing my archers podcast the voices were very clear and the background sound effect were great the bass added much to the play back on the voices, finally i played bbc radio 5, and the sound experience was just the same as for the podcast. . I don't usually gush about anything these days but this speaker is really good value and i can recommend it to anyone

K. Heidi, New South Wales says

Have been building and renovating my house for nearly seven years, and for all that time i have been looking forward to the day when i could start building my multiroom audio system. Originally i had looked at the logitech squeeze system but after a while set my heart on sonos. . I bought the play:1 as a relatively inexpensive way of dipping my toe in to see how i like the sonos way and i am just in love with it. Setup was a tiny bit fiddly but it just needed a setting on my nas to be adjusted. I also struggled with installing the desktop controller on the desktop pc, but soon gound the answer i needed through the excellent sonos support forums. Setup using the android app is really simple. . Sound quality is excellent, especially when you consider the small size of this unit. I have the play:1 in my home office and i feel it would easily fill a larger room before feeling the need to go up the product range. Build quality seems to be first rate too. . My only complaints. The sonos range is generally quite expensive and sonos is addictive! i already have a connect unit arriving today to add to my living room rack, less than a week after the play:1. Next up will be a connect:amp for the kitchen/diner, but i'll need to save up for that first!

A. Garner, Richmond upon Thames

After deciding to clear my clutter i started to look into streaming mechanisms that gave a good sound throughout the house. I was lucky enough to find retailers with setups of sonos and its competitors. Sonos sounded the best by far. I made what i considered a large financial investment in my first play 1 but after setting it up and listening to my music on it not much time passed before i bought my second play 1. On the whole i have been really happy with the system. I generally have both play 1s in different rooms but grouped to play the same output. Sonos wakes me up in the mornings and it's really easy to update my music library from my nas whenever i add something new. The app is easy to use and the sonos design is so sleek and stylish it just sits on the side in each room in an inconspicuous manner. Until you switch it on. . I love my sonos system and am now, having moved house recently, happily considering buying a playbar to replace my sony sound system for the tv. . If you are looking to invest in a music player such as sonos but have a certain amount of trepidation regarding the cost please don't let the cost put you off. You really do get value for money and when i had problems with my broadband set up recently the sonos help desk really put themselves out to help and advise. After you buy your first piece you can take time to save up for the next piece and the joy of sonos is that you can add to your desired setup over time and it can interact with almost any av equipment you have in the house.

Y. Williams, Hounslow says

Bought this to add to our play:3 and play:5 system. Anyone who knows sonos products will know this is a quality product with excellent sound. Sonos is the simplest of systems to provide wireless music around the house. Plugged in the new play:1, opened the app controller on the iphone and in seconds it was recognised and was playing music from our itunes library and our collection of cds stored on our lacie-cloudbox. Then it was playing our favourite streamed radio. An easily expanded system with excellent software interface through laptop, ipad & iphone apps. Now to save up for the soundbar and subwoofer.

Disadvantage and Critical reviews

H. Theresa, Rhode Island says

Not a bad speaker but drops out from the app way too often for my liking.

U. Juliana, Vermont

I would have given this 5 stars as the sound quality is outstanding. . However, i had difficulties with the setup and the "controller application" including intermittent playback and synchronisation problems with my itunes library. . I contacted sonos support directly and found them to be of limited help, in fact almost no help at all. Oh and before anyone asks, i work in the technology industry so understand wi-fi etc.

B. Teresa, East Riding of Yorkshire says

Don't get me wrong, when it works the sound is fantastic. The problem is that for an internet connected speaker it sucks. Spotify from either the ios or windows apps fails to connect at least 50% of the time and the only reliable fix is to switch the speaker off and on again! sometimes this is caused by forced changes that render the speaker unusable until you've applied the update, but more often than not the connection is just lost. For an expensive speaker with a sole function this is unforgivable and ruins the whole experience. The dedicated sonos windows app is also just dreadful, and a shocking example of a circa 1990's ui design - the ios version isn't much better. You also cannot play online store music direct - you have to use the awful sonos app.

I. Hayward, Ontario

The sound quality is fantastic as expected, however there is no line in which scuppered my plans to use chromecast audio as i do not like the sonos app.

Y. Marguerite, Hammersmith and Fulham says

The main disappointment for me with the sonos product is that the connection to spotify is extremely fragile and falls over unacceptably frequently. It is not suitable, therefore, if your main use would be to stream spotify around your domicile.

L. Jacqueline, New Hampshire

Nice enough sound but overpriced and with poor connectivity options. No reason for that other then sonos wanting you to upgrade or buy more stuff. Not going to.

R. Lynette, Kingston upon Thames says

Sonos fine but only uk power cord.

S. Hakala, Solihull

Lovely speaker. However as i have found out, my connection after a couple of days since initial wifi set up, bizarely, on my iphone 6, does not work. I fled to the sonos community web help site and left no wiser as to what the solution is. Very very annoying. Being asked to reset from the router with all systems off and find that it still leaves me without a connection creates a righteous indignation that has no outlet beyond impotent rage.

Q. Lisa, Hertfordshire says

I liked the idea of the product with the app, but in the end i couldn't get into it. I returned it after trying it. The app just makes the speaker more complicated than it needed. I almost was going to keep it. In the end it annoyed me, by how limited it is. I can't get over my feeling of it as a gimmick, or that it's not exactly there to work as a system. The speaker itself is decent, but i found better sound and more versatile speakers (wire+bluetooth) in the same price that i use every day. For occasional music or parties the sonos could be ok.

J. Laura, Southend-on-Sea

Sound is great but it does not play i-pad cloud and is not compatible with my i-pad. No problem playing off laptop and music streaming from deezer and spotify but must subscribe to these apps. Does not support free spotify. These negatives should be highlighted in adverts for this product

O. Anonymous, Mississippi says

Fantastic sound from such a small speaker, but it needs a wi-fi repeater in the same room when moved away from the playbar and router

K. Maria, District of Columbia

Amazing sound and elegant design, but until they fix the issue with skipping the end of songs then i'd think hard about slapping down the wedge for this. Apparently the issue is to do with wi-fi interference, but when you consider services like netflix can chuck down full hd content to my phone, console, pc or whatever without a stutter, it really doesn't wash sonos telling me that my wi-fi signal is causing the songs to skip forward. Not good enough for such a premium product. . It's a shame because it really is a great speaker, but it sounds like a recent update has borked things somewhat.

. Pearson, Nordrhein-Westfalen says

Awful and painful set up process. Sadly, i ended up returning it. It appears to work best with the ethernet cable. Not ideal for me. Otherwise, connection/set up is buggy. One time it will be connected, then it will try and find the system which it had just connected. Awful app interface.

V. Diana, Mississippi

There are so many things to like about the sonos play speaker. The build quality and design, the sound is fantastic but it comes with one main fatal flaw. The main thing is the app. It constantly disengages and states there is a problem but with no solution. (i am a bit of a geek on tech like this and tried the app on new and old iphones and ipads but with no reliable performance. I've also gone through all the help and support out there). The other issue is that when there is a problem with the app there is no bluetooth or wired option to get any sound out of them. Your just left with an expensive door stop. I'm so disappointed with the system and really wanted them to work properly. Unless they deliver something like a useable performance in the next week i will return them. I'm thinking of going for the bose soundtouch system instead.

T. Fabian, Bury says

Nice sound when loud very average otherwise, has some serious limitations what it will connect to, i should have checked with sonos service department before i purchased, i just never expected it to be so limited. Have contacted sonos service this will not work with online store audible or online store prime free music files, no point if you are a prime customer. . Thank you for contacting sonos customer care. To answer your question neither of these features are yet available to sonos, but we are working with online store to bring these two highly demanded features. Sonos is no longer able to support playback of audible audiobooks, starting with an upcoming late fall 2015 software update. We had to make a hard decision between adding new features or maintain support for audio format 4 which is what audible audiobooks was downloaded in. . The decision was a difficult one to make and both audible and sonos are maintaining a positive relationship through this process. . We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. We want to reiterate our commitment to working with audible on a new and improved way of streaming your favourite audiobooks, but sonos is unable to read the format 4 that audible audiobooks are currently downloaded in. . As for online store prime, it shall most likely be implemented in the future versions, but there is no current to timeframe for this feature.

I was wanting a spotify multiroom system and thought a set of play 1's would be ideal. I imagined listening to spotify on my phone then being able to switch and play it through the speakers wirelessly. This was the goal. Sadly that isn't quite possible. . The sonos system doesn't work with the spotify app because sonos for some reason don't want to update their software to allow the spotify connect feature. Instead you need to close the spotify app you're listening to, open up the sonos app, choose spotify and then play music through this. You can see playlists, search for artists, songs etc but no browse top lists or discover feature, and all of the other spotify app features you would be used to. . Such a shame as the speaker sounds incredible it's just let down by the software.

Hard to connect to smartthings and other smart hubs. Also i was expecting to be able to play directy from my libaray, however you have to send the music to the sonos app first.

Fantastic speakers and sound quality when it "decides" to work. I can't remember how many issues i have had with wifi connections, updates, not recognising, not syncing etc etc etc. Bizarrely this always seems to happen when we have guests and family round which is often. Sometimes it will just stop when changing an playlist and then you have to go through the whole setup again. It's so frustrating, i just want to launch the thing in the bin. Not what you expect from a company claiming to be more popular than bose. How this has not been rectified already is beyond me. Such a shame because the sound is just incredible.

N. Cecilia, North Somerset says

Not stated that this only works if you upgrade your spotify sub to premium.

M. Cathy, Utah

Bit bored with it cutting in and out of signal ( but that could be as good as it gets outside of very good wifi areas ) that said the sound quality is very good

A. Carol, Milton Keynes says

If only i'd known there's a limit to how many tunes from your itunes library this will play. The limit is 65, 000 but it's a lot less in practice depending on how many characters are in the metadata. If you have a large itunes library it's not a wise buy.

X. Valencia, Knowsley

In terms of sound quality and ease this is fab, i have it hooked up to a nas drive which means i don't have to keep a pc turned on in order to listen to my music. That was at first very annoying and made me pay out another 150 for a nas drive but now i am relatively happy. My other gripes include the sheer cost of these products, the sub is over 500 so i will never be able to justify that! i really would like the freedom of a line in too for my laptop, streaming video etc or even my ipod classic, sometimes thats just easier! it's as if its all a big marketing ploy to get you to buy the upper models or sound bar or even 300+ for a connect amp. It still cost me 340 to buy a set for stereo speakers, i should at least get a line in don't you think?

D. Michele, Wyoming says

The sound is great and while it works with online store echo, it will not play the same thing at the same time, hence only three stars

F. Rita, Wirral

The sound is wonderful, and it's a really nice piece of kit. It just doesn't work with anything - won't work with itunes, won't work with netflix/prime/youtube apps on ios devices, won't work with a free spotify account. . So if you can actually find something to play - brilliant. Otherwise, not much use.

G. Lorenz, New Jersey says

The speakers sound great but you're restricted to playing through apps supported by sonos such as spotify, deezer, and tunein for radio. Can't be used for tv sound or bbc iplayer (the most serious fault) also for reasons unknown, the sonos speakers give a can't be found error when the wifi is working perfectly. Also, there are drop-outs when playing which require a pause-play button press to rectify.

P. Stacey, Herefordshire

This is the third in my sonos collection (i have a play 5 and play 3) and is currently in my kitchen. The sound is good when connected but it frequently drops out despite being less than two metres from the router (albeit on the other side of a wall). I have tried investigating with sonos and putting it in an alternative position but it seems to be worse with television transmission. Better with music but drops the television voices. Not much point listening to university challenge whilst cooking if you just get the answers and miss the questions! also the sonos software isn't groundbreaking anymore and it could do with a update. It regularly freezes and becomes unresponsive. Also track jumping is a problem. If i hadn't just bought this i would think about another make now that the technology has advanced.
