Sonos PLAY:1 wireless streaming music speaker

A world of music you can fit almost anywhere

If you have a wireless home network and a smartphone, then you're ready to start streaming music in any room in your home. All you're missing is Sonos, the easiest way to create a network of wireless music players throughout your home. Now, it's more affordable than ever to get in on the fun. The compact PLAY:1 offers easy setup, clear sound, and simple placement or wall mounting in almost any spot you'd like to liven up with some tunes.

How much music can you access with the PLAY:1? How about pretty much any music available anywhere? Get Pandora® Internet radio, Spotify, iHeartRadio, Rhapsody®, SiriusXM, and thousands of free Internet radio stations. The compact Sonos PLAY:1 lets you enjoy music from the Internet as well as songs stored on your home computers or portable devices — without filling your room with audio gear. It's perfect for small rooms and cozy corners, and setup is as easy as pushing a button. You can even pair two PLAY:1 speakers and configure them for rich stereo sound.

Expand to any (or every) room

Place Sonos players like the PLAY:1, as well as the larger PLAY:3 and PLAY:5, in every room where you want to listen to music. You can set up the players to work on your existing Wi-Fi® network. Or, you can connect any Sonos speaker to your network router, and Sonos will create its own dedicated wireless network for even better performance. You can also use a BOOST to create this network if you can't place a speaker near your router.

Sonos controllers

The Sonos app gives you easy wireless control

You can use your iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad®, or Android™ smartphone or tablet to control any and all Sonos players. A free download turns your smartphone and tablet into a full-fledged Sonos controller. Easily navigate and search through playlists and tracks stored on your computer, or select an Internet radio station. Create customized playlists on the fly for individual rooms or for playback over your entire Sonos system. You can also mute or adjust the volume of each of your players.

Trueplay speaker tuning for optimal sound

If you use your Sonos control app on an iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®, great news. You can use your iOS® device to fine-tune the PLAY:1 with Sonos's Trueplay feature. It uses the mic built into your device to measure how the sound reflects off your walls and furnishings, and then it adjusts the speaker's settings for the best possible sound. Trueplay works with every PLAY:1, PLAY:3, and PLAY:5 speaker in your system. (Currently for iOS devices only.)

Spotify®, Pandora®, SiriusXM, and more at your fingertips

The Sonos system works seamlessly with a host of streaming music services, including Pandora, Spotify, Deezer, Rhapsody®, TIDAL and more. You also have access to thousands of Internet radio stations from around the world through TuneIn Radio, and terrestrial radio stations through iHeartRadio. If you subscribe to SiriusXM Internet Radio, you can tune into all your favorite programming on any Sonos player in your system.

Play music stored on your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®

Sonos gives you convenient wireless access to music and podcasts stored in the Music app of your iOS devices, for playback throughout your entire Sonos system. This function works on devices running iOS6 or later (see below for full list of compatible Apple devices). The system even lets you connect a combination of up to 16 PCs, Mac® computers, smartphones, tablets, and digital music storage devices from your home network simultaneously.  

Queue up songs from your iPhone to play in the kitchen while you cook, while your spouse streams a podcast in the den from the family computer, and your children use their tablet to enjoy music from their kid-friendly Pandora station — all at the same time.


Expand your Sonos system

You can have up to 32 Sonos music players in your system, and each one can play an independent selection of individual tracks or playlists. Listen to jazz in the den while your spouse plays rock music in the kitchen, or pump a single playlist of songs throughout the entire house during a party.

I have been looking for this kind of system for years. Now that I have it I am fully satisfied. You can have music in every room just plug in your speaker. You can control your system both from your computer or your smartphone. Really cool.

Pros: Easy to install and versatile.

Cons: Hi cost but worth every penny.

Sonos Play 1

Written by: Matthew from howell, MI on February 1, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sonos has impressed me again. This was the 4th Sonos product I have purchased. I bought this Play 1 for our fitness room. Perfect sound for the space it is in. Easy to set up. The unit is quite portable, so If we want to move it outside during get togethers, its perfect. Thank you again Crutchfield for all your helpful reviews! I recommend this play 1 for everyone

Pros: Small, Great sound, more affordable than other sonos units

Cons: Still pricey (all sonos are)

Great Sounding Speakers

Written by: Richard from buffalo, NY on January 30, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sonos play 1 are small in size but they are big in sound. The clarity sound at higher volumes is amazing (highs and mids) , with nice crisp bass.Great job Sonos!

Pros: Great sound in a small package , Very easy set up, Not an eye sore in a room,

Cons: Only con is speakers need a power cord! Wish these can have a battery pack for hanging on walls and/or better portability around the house. I was gonna mount on my walls but looking/thinking of a power cord running down my wall was very discouraging. Have on a corner table and it's perfect and power cord is hidden.

Great little speaker

Written by: Linh from Maryland on January 5, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a very nice wireless speaker option. It fits a niche use for us in that we want compact and least amount of wires. A Chromecast Audio would have been great... if there were single speaker options like this (LG's current H3 is not worth it IMO given it's close to the same price). It sounds pretty good, as we live in a townhouse so just wanted something easy to use as well.

Software could be more friendly IMO. I had 0 problems, but find their Android App isn't always obvious. Queue list has no indication of how to get out of it. Yes, you'd try back eventually, but there's no indication you're in a subpage of some sort (I have this same issue with Play Music actually).

My biggest issue is cost for sound. It's on the a little too high for what you get. Part of this is the whole house experience, and that is pretty damn nice (even for just 2 speakers). But I feel that tide is about to change.

Frankly, if there was a good Chromecast Audio solution, I'd go there. But there wasn't. And I didn't want to wait. If you can deal with larger bookshelf speakers and some extra wires, I would go there in a heartbeat now. But Sonos still has the multi room experience down pretty good. If that's a big factor now, this is the way to go.

Pros: Nice multi room setup. Sounded better than expected. compact and clean

Cons: Expensive, despite sounding better than expected. No true universal Google Cast option (it only works on Android, not iOS, and I don't think it's actually Google Cast)

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I already own two Play 1's and 2 Sonos Connects. I bought this latest one as a gift for my daughter. She loves it! It was easy for her to get set up and playing her favorite radio station.

Pros: Compact, easy setup, great sound from small speaker

Cons:

A good place to start

Written by: Melanie from Virginia on December 30, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Having fallen in love with my Sonos Connect, I purchased the Sonos Play for my mother as a Christmas gift. She listens to music while in her sewing room, and isn't as preoccupied with sound quality as I am. Play 1 is a small speaker that is surprisingly powerful and as easy to set up as other Sonos devices. It lacks a subwoofer, which means that fans of an emphatic low end (or those accustomed to a stereo system with a powered subwoofer) should start with one of the more expensive Play speakers.

Pros: Ease of set up Compact but powerful A comparatively inexpensive starting point for those new to networked speakers

Cons: Weak bass

Great sound, worth the money

Written by: Anne from California on December 12, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a situation of you really have to hear it to believe it. Lucky for me both of my siblings are Sonos loyalist, so I've had the opportunity to experience a full house system as well as a situational system (2 rooms). I purchased the Play 1 for my office. I appreciate the flexibility of this wireless product and feel the quality is exceptional.

Pros: Quality sound. Easy set-up and placement.

Cons:

Sonos system is awesome!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love my Sonos! Super easy to set up and operate, fab sound, great to be able to play from my iPhone or daughter's, love playing from my iTunes, Pandora, radio. Only problem: what do I do with all of these old CDs taking up spans on my shelves?

Pros: Ease of use, great sound

Cons: Addictive- I want one for every room!

Great sound!

Written by: Stormy from Oklahoma on October 25, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very easy to get hooked up and sound is amazing especially for such a small unit. Thoroughly impressed. Had hoped to have both Sonos sound and my computer speakers but at least at this point, Sonos takes over but that's OK! Might need to buy a second unit for the computer room.

Pros: Size, shape

Cons:

Great product

Written by: Jack from Houston, Texas on October 4, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Small speaker puts on surprisingly good sound for its size. It's small and fits nicely on our bathroom counter. Sonos is great. We got the white one, looks great in our bathroom with white countertops.

Pros: 1) Surprisingly good sound for its size. 2) Easy to find a good spot for it since its smaller compared to its more expensive sisters. 3) The cheapest of the Sonos speakers.

Cons: 1) Not cheap but well worth it.

These wonderful speakers round out my surround system. I started with the Playbar and now have two Play. Ones for surround. Saving my money for the Subwoofer. Simple setup.

Pros: Well integrated and easy to set up. I love all of the stations and my SiriismXM auto subscription works with it as well

Cons: Pricey

Great, but I wish it didn't rely on the app

Written by: David from Kentucky on August 31, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound!

I thought I had a good idea of how Sonos worked before I bought the two PLAY:1s we have at our house. We love that we can put them in different rooms, play different things on each one, and adjust it all through our phones. The actual Sonos app is relatively easy to use - it's intuitive, and once you get everything set up, it works great.

Having to reply on the app, however, is a negative. I wish that it would just connect to my phone and play whatever I select. (This would mean that I couldn't listen to music and take a phone call at the same time, but I'm willing to sacrifice that) If it operated more like a regular bluetooth/wifi speaker, I wouldn't have to reset all of my music preferences and settings.

Two quick examples - you can use Spotify through your Sonos, but because it connects to Spotify as it's own device, none of your personalization is available in the Sonos app. That means none of your Spotify playlists or created radio stations. (In fact the "start a station based on that song" feature isn't available in Sonos) So you have to recreate everything you already have. Sonos has it's own level of music security built into its app so you can't play pirated material (I'm a huge fan of that), BUT it won't trust your other devices - many of the albums that I have purchased hard copies of and then downloaded to my device will not play through Sonos.

Again ,both of these issues would be solved if it didn't have such a "fancy" app and operating system.

Pros: Fantastic sound Multiple sources of sound in different locations Ability to play different things in different rooms Easy and intuitive control

Cons: Sonos app restricts available content & features

Great speaker!

Written by: Chris from Georgia on August 26, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound from a small package! Easy to set up, great customer support, and great music choices through the app.

Pros: Sound, size, app.

Cons:

Best speaker system you can purchase.

Written by: JimH from Florida on August 11, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sonos speakers are easiest to set up and then within a few minutes you are enjoying beautiful clear music.

Pros: Easy of set up and tech support offered by Crutchfield and Sonos cannot be touched. They are superb.

Cons: A bit pricey but worth the money.

Sonos Play 1

Written by: DerickR from Northern NJ on August 10, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First Sonos speaker was looking for the flexibility of a wireless speaker and the Play one has exceeded my expectations. Good quality sound form such a small speaker. Installed one speaker, super easy the app walks you right through installation, to listen to the sound quality and play with location. About a week later installed second speaker, again super easy app walked me right through installation. I was able to adjust the volumes of each speaker through the app and now have them grouped together. The ease of installation and sound quality has me seriously thinking about a play bar and sub.

Pros: Ease of installation, Great app, Good sound Quality Speaker blend easily into decor.

Cons: none

Sonos play 1

Written by: April from Pennsylvania on August 8, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very happy with the Sonos Play 1. I have been wanting to listen to my music everywhere I go. That's what I love about it. It goes where I go! Great sound, nice in appearance, good range(hearing it from a distance) makes this a great choice for me! I will be adding more eventually so I don't have to unplug and move it every time.

Pros: Great appearance, great sound, can move it anywhere where there is a plug.

Cons: I wish, I wish we didn't need the plug; and I wish I wish Sonos had a weather proof outdoor speaker! Someday soon I hope ! :)

Sounds great and love the portability!

Written by: Jason B from Tennessee on July 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am impressed with the sound that these speakers produce solo. They sound even better when you pair them up and put them into stereo mode. I wanted some outdoor tunes and these speakers are perfect for that! I only wish there was an outdoor weather-resistent model - come on Sonos! Being tethered to the wall by a power cord is a drag - I wish there was a rechargeable/battery option. The Sonos controller app is pretty robust but it could be improved. I do like the speakers and would definitely recommend them.

Pros: Sound; Multiple modes (solo, groups, stereo); Portability; Physical play/stop and volume buttons; Easy setup

Cons: Power cord (rechargeable option would be sweet!); Lack of Amazon Prime Music integration (only regular Amazon Music)

Solid Performance

Written by: Alan from Tennessee on July 14, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Play 1 is a great addition to my Playbar. Its has a nice well built heft and it blends in nicely with the decor. It certainly has plenty of output and I prefer 2 Play 1's to one Play 5. Very easy to setup!

Pros: setup, Integration and design

Cons: I wish there was one other input option such as 3.5mm or Bluetooth

Great system and product

Written by: Chris from Atlanta on July 5, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Really easy to setup and has good sound. I'm not a super high end audiophile so I can't say if these sound comparable to high end speakers, but to me as a general listener they sound great. I have a couple in my living room, a couple on my deck, and one in my bedroom.

Pros: Easy to setup, sound good

Cons: App to control them isn't the best. While grouping speakers is easy, if you want to add a speaker to a group after you already started listening you have to stop the current song playing and then restart the music.

A pair of Play:1's

Written by: Dtownboys from Pennsylvania on May 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I added two Play:1's to my sound bar and sub to create surround sound. It sounds fabulous. I really like it. I was concerned that the Play:1 might not be pwerful enough but these little guys are serious speakers. I have taken them out on my back deck and used the pair of Play:1's as my only speakers and they sound great.

Pros: Lots of sound. Good powerful speakers.

Cons: It's a bit of a pain to divorce them from my surround sound set-up and move them outside. Then I have to reconfigure which can be done but it takes a few minutes and is just harder than it needs to be.

Great Final Touch

Written by: jbbrown from Florida on May 17, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I already had the PlayBar, PlaySub and two Play 3's. I had the Bar and Sub set up as a 2.1 sound system for my TV however, I knew I needed to go for the full 5.1 solution and the Play 3's were being used in other rooms..so, I wanted the Play 1's to complete the configuration. They did the job and then some, from an outstanding surround sound for video, using the Sonos app I can switch to beautiful sound with Pandora or other apps. The Play 1"s were icing on the Sonos sound cake at our home. I am pleased with the system in every conceivable way...oh and by the way, Crutchfield is a great place to buy Sonos products very fast delivery, no sales tax and technical assistance every step of the way.

Pros: See review

Cons: None

Great for small room

Written by: Robb from California on May 17, 2015

Replaced a Sony radio with crappy reception and sound in our master bathroom with Sonos 1. The difference was absolutely staggering! I know have Sonos in 5 rooms on on 2 decks. I never touch my expensive home media system now. I even pull in African music from a station in Marseilles France, and a Gaelic program from Ireland readily switching between them and my several local NPR stations and the various BBC stations..

Pros: Central as well as local control.

Cons: You can't fault the Sonos system. They aren't cheap as other reviewers point out - but quality per $ beats everything out there.

Can only use Sonos App to Play Audio

Written by: My Bad from California on May 14, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sound was Awesome! Wish I could have kept it... but had to return because I didn't do my homework. Here's Cliffs Notes for those like me: --Does not work like a traditional speaker, so it will not play audio from online or other non-sonos app compatible sources. --You can get the functionality above using "Line In" if you buy a Play 5 or add a Sonos Connect. --Rare, but you may have trouble with firewall/port permissions you have set. So really mostly my fault for not doing more research.

Pros: Sound

Cons: Limited audio sources if you are not planning on buying a Sonos Connect or Play 5 or find another way around the "Line In" issue.

Good product if your expectations aren't unreasonably high

Written by: RickW from Louisiana on April 5, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This speaker is easy to connect, unobtrusive, and sounds pretty good as long as it's close to you. For example, if you position it on your desk or nightstand, you should be pretty satisfied with its sound. If you put it in a large room and aren't close to it, however, its sound will disappoint. While I might be belaboring the obvious, I believe it's still worth noting. The separation between bass and treble is pretty impressive.

Pros: Small footprint Easy setup Good separation

Cons: For "intimate" listening

This product was very easy to set up and the sound was great. I wanted to be able to access my iTunes library from a mobile device in my home and was using a portable bluetooth speaker before purchasing the Sonos Play 1.

Pros: Easy to set up. Great sound. Fits my needs. Thinking about adding more Sonos products and recommending to friends and family.

Cons: Could not access via wireless one time due to poor wireless reception in my home. I need to learn more about the Sonos products to enhance my reception.

Simply fantastic!

Written by: L. Cruz from Charlottesville, VA on February 22, 2015

The Sonos Play 1 is fantastic little system. It was remarkably easy to set up on all the devices on my network (two phones, a laptop and a tablet). The single speaker is enough to fill my whole apartment (about 700 square feet) with my favorite music.

It should be said that the mobile and computer software are not seamless. Things that are easily accessible on the mobile version are hidden behind menus on the computer (setting up internet radio broadcast) and vice versa. I will also make it plain that you can only access music remotely from active devices. By this I mean that your laptop needs to be on in order to access it and play it via a mobile device. I am looking to make a workaround for this by placing my music library onto a networked hard drive so that my computer doesnt need to be on all the time.

Pros: Easy to set up. Clean, clear sound.

Cons: Software not seamless.

This is my 4th Sonos Play 1. Very good music sound for its size. Need I say more.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Great, Not Perfect

Written by: Davidin from SF California on February 2, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound in a compact package. Enjoying it a lot

Pros: Great sound Beautiful design Nice sound Integrates perfectly with the rest of my Sonos

Cons: On the high-price side (right price would be lower) Lack of alternative inputs like bluetooth or AirPlay (directly without a Bridge). I realize this is Sonos' overall strategy and for music systems makes sense. However, for those small shelf ones, it is very difficult to output directly from my mac. I have to rely on my older Jambox to do that, not ideal.

Play 1

Added to growing Sonos system. Using in smaller room. Sound is full with decent base for a small speaker. We have Play 5's also but for next medium sized room we will go with 2 paired Play 1's

Pros: Plug and play. Big sound and small size for smaller spaces.

Cons: For what it is designed for and at this price I cant see any negatives.

This unit is, by far, the most impressive speaker of it's type that I have ever used. It is simple to set up. It connects immediately, and the choices of music services is impressive. I used my Android phone to set it up and control it. The audio is amazing. Believe me, it puts that other famous B--- name to shame. I would not hesitate to recommend this Sonus to everyone

Wow

Written by: Bill from Maryland on January 12, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After wrestling for two years with Airplay's connectivity issues we decided to try SONOS. Wow, I was very surprised at the quality and robust sound of the PLAY 1. They are worth the $200 price point. Surprisingly the PLAY 1 has the umpf of our retired Pioneer A4s and sounded so much better than the Home iW3s we had around the house.

SONOS marketing really doesn't give adequate props to how good these sound.

The SONOS interface is just spectacular - I did not think I'd see much value in the flexibility of being able to play different sources in different rooms, but we do use that feature. It really is spectacular and well executed.

Pros: Great sound Surprising clean volume w NO dropouts Excellent detail in construction Elegant software interface Easy to set up

Cons: Expensive, but, worth it No multi band EQ (beyond bass and treble) yet

I was definitely curious about this speaker and whether it would put out enough bass to be worth the price. Totally worth it. Does a great job at filling up the master bedroom. Not sure I'd use it for a big area, but it does the job for a single room. Also looks great on the dresser.

Pros: Big sound from a compact unit, sleek look.

Cons: Wouldn't be a good choice for a large space.

Amazing powerful units for their size

Written by: PeterC from California on December 31, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have purchased quite a few Sonos products over the last year. Their ease of use combined with the surprisingly good sound quality has led me to purchase two playbars, 2 PLAY:3s, 1 PLAY:5, 1 Sonos Sub, and 4 PLAY:1s. I currently use the PLAY:1s as surround speakers for the playbars but these speakers can definitely hold their own. The PLAY:1s are amazingly powerful as they can get very loud considering the size of the units. Pair them together and you got an awesome stereo setup. Also, Crutchfield rocks. The speakers were shipped to me quickly and packaged with plenty of protective cushion. My advisor, Zac is always a pleasure to talk to and has never led me astray. Thanks!

Pros: Versatile Small but powerful

Pros: Great sound. Ease of setting up. Easy to put anywhere in the house to balance your listening pleasure.

Cons: You have to use Sonos' software to play them.

If you are looking for a single speaker for a room I would recommend getting the 3 or 5 but the 1 is great for a small room or one where you don't necessarily need the depth of sound a 3 or 5 provides.

This was an addition to my existing SONOS system. It is great for integrating speakers throughout the house, and consolidating all my digital music, television, DVD, along with internet sources to all/any speaker in my home. While the system is a bit expensive you get what you pay for and I've been very pleased with each SONOS item I've purchased.

Pros: Play1 - Small size, great sound, portable between rooms. Works with the rest of my system.

Cons: It does not remember its settings when you unplug the speaker and move it to another room, While a complete re-install is not needed I've not discovered a simple way to sync up speaker up once its moved. One would hope it would sync up on the system and pick up right where it left off. I've fumble with re-grouping it with another speaker, resetting the queue, changing the source, and still haven't come up with a simple foolproof procedure. Would be nice to have a single button to re-sync.

The only problem I have with the Sonos system is that I don't have all of it ...yet. This was a snap to set up. I had clean, clear, music in my house about 2 minutes after I opened the boxes. The hardware and the software are very intuitive. So easy to use, so smart, and just beautiful, room filling sound. I bought a Sonos Bridge and 2 Play:1 speakers, to start. I have them in the same room right now and I easily configured them to work in true stereo sound. Love it, and I want more components, for every room, but I can bring them wherever I want, until then.

Pros: Great sound. Really like the Sonos system, particularly integration with Spotify and Pandora. Love the simplicity.

Cons: Took a little while to understand the system on the iPhone, but not overly complex and I love that you can use from all your devices. Have had some trouble getting the radio to play through the system - but not sure if that's tied to a slowdown in my wireless. That said, system is definitely dependent on your wireless/router.

Sonos Play1

Written by: Bruce from Dallas on August 29, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought a single Sonos Play1 speaker to try out before committing to a complete system, and I am delighted with it's performance. I did not buy a bridge, as the Play1 speaker can be connected directly to your computer with an Ethernet cable. The Play1 setup was a breeze. I use it to stream Pandora and the Play1 even works with my computer turned off. The sound quality is rich and deep with no loss of highs and mid-range tones. I am not an audiophile, but the play1 sounds good to me. The price and performance make it a winner.

I've read that the bridge may be unnecessary with the next software upgrade, so I will buy one more Play1 and pair it up to see how the stereo pairing function performs, and also to see if the one base unit will function as a bridge for the new speaker. The bridge information was a bit unclear to me from the literature. I would, and have recommended the Play1 as a great buy and excellent sound system.

Pros: ease of use. small footprint, great sound, wireless control (app), great price for the quality

Cons:

We added the Sonos Play1 to our system, which started with the Play 3. Great sound from a small package. Setup was even easier than I expected, We will add one or two more in future.

Pros: Ease of setup, sound quality

Cons: absolutely none

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have always been tempted to get a Sonos product because of the ability to cut the wires, but have always abstained until I discovered the Sonos Play:1. This definitely felt more within my price range and I was initially worried that it might come at the cost of audio quality. I was pleasantly surprised after I took the plunge as it definitely felt as though the quality of the audio was pretty good. The connection to my other speakers was flawless even though they were placed at opposite ends of a 2 bedroom house. I would recommend this for people who would like to try out a Sonos product for sure!

Pros: Great audio Great connectivity

Cons: App could be better in integration of custom playlists

Wow!

Exceeded all my expectations. Originally looked for a wire-less speaker to connect to I-pod. Begun looking at the Sonos play 1 speaker for outside on pool deck. Purchased it and the controller. Setup was a breeze. Found some stations on Pandora radio and the sound was great. Have some Regae Calypso playing and sounds like we're back in Jamaica. Next step is the Play 5 for inside the house. Wife loves it, hasn't played her I-Pod since the Play 1 arrivied. Very pleased.

As with all Sonos products, and I own two complete systems, this speaker is terrific. Simple to set up and great sound for a small to medium size room. Thanks Sonos, and keep the new ideas coming!

Cons: None.

This is my second Sonos speaker. I earlier bought a Play:3. Both sound excellent to me. I mostly use them for accessing my itunes library in different parts of the house. I wasn't sure if the Play:1 would be large enough to sound good with the range of music I listed to but it sounds great. Adding it to the current configuration couldn't have been easier. I will likely buy another very soon.

Pros: Great sound and easy to connect

Cons:

Fantastic

Written by: Chris from Seminole, FL on July 11, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What a fantastic speaker. I was impressed by the Play 5, but the Play 1 is much better, probably because of new technology. After buying one, I ordered another and paired them in stereo. The sound is clear, crisp, and has great bass for such a small speaker. Sonos uses a great power supply, which enhances the sound of this speaker. I bought the Bridge, the Connect, and two Play 1 speakers. All were ultra easy to set up. Plug it into your router and just push a button. Sonos does the rest. There is nothing to figure out. The app that runs it works great too. The Connect is hooked to my stereo but I hardly use it because the Play 1 speakers are so great. If you are trying to choose between the Connect to use with your stereo or two Play 1s, buy the Play 1s. You will not be sorry. Plus, you can move them around. Your stereo speakers are fixed.

Pros: Clean, clear, crisp sound. Great bass. Easy to set up. Easy to add more components. Ultra portable.

Cons: None

Big Surround

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased two Play:1 speakers as surround for the Playbar. They are perfect for that. Also, the sound is so good, I will purchase more Play:1 speakers for other rooms. Control from iPad makes set-up easy. Whole house sound from wireless speakers---yesterday's science fiction; today's reality.

Pros: Easy set up; great sound.

Cons: Pricey.

This is a very impressive product and well worth the cost. Room placement and proper equalization (from the SONOS app) proved to be very helpful to the resulting very sayisfying sound.

Pros: Quality sound; cost factor; cool quotient.

Cons: You are likely to start a collection of SONOS products to be placed throughout your home or business!!

Great system despite setup difficulty

Written by: LG from Dallas on June 24, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I stumbled upon Sonos while looking for a solution to enjoy music on my screened-in porch. It appeared to be a very cost effective solution versus wiring B-channel speakers to one of my stereo systems, and with Crutchfield's generous return policy, I figured it was worth a try. I purchased a Sonos bridge and one Play:1 speaker. Set up would have been very easy but for the fact that my wifi router lacked an Ethernet port, so it was delayed until I could replace the router. Sonos worked well the first day, but I soon discovered that my wireless AT&T Uverse TVs quit working. The Uverse technician got the TVs working but moved the Sonos bridge to a part of the house that was apparently too far to reach the Play:1 on my patio. I solved the problem by moving the Sonos bridge to a second router in my detached garage apartment, near the porch. Set up could be much easier than what I experienced if your house is smaller and you are not trying to enjoy your Sonos system outside. I am very impressed by the sound of the diminutive Play:1 and the fantastic software interface. It pulls in music stored on iphones, ipads, home computers, as well as subscription services and radio stations as seamlessly and easily as advertised. I'm a bit of an audiophile and plan to eventually purchase two Sonos Connect boxes to enjoy Sonos on my existing stereos as well as a pair of Play:1 speakers for my kitchen; however I think this will require another Sonos bridge.

Pros: Great software and impressive sound for the cost of the speaker.

Cons: Range limitation.

outstanding sound

Written by: JL Hubbard from Stafford, VA on June 12, 2014

Consumer Reports gave this speaker an excellent rating and they were right! I can hardly wait to add more speakers and tie it with the sound system in my home. I think the sound is better than my Bose speakers.

Pros: Incredible sound. and easy to move from place to place. Can be integrated into home system.

Cons: Require WiFi so it may be necessary to purchase an extender. Is not the cheapest, but then you get what you pay for.

I now own a pair of Play 5's and Play One's. Using the 'Ones' poolside under my lanai as well as in my house.....nothing but positives....easy to set up, pair, seperate, adjust the bass/treble etc. While the One's may lack some of the depth of sound, they make up for it in convenience! I have 'sold' several friends on Sonos as well...all equally pleased. I like the new Sonos format for the Ipad and Android....well done!

Pros: Price, ease of setting up

.Product performed as advertised. Unit is solid and well made.

Pros: Clean design and compact footprint . Good range of sound, especially bass for such a small unit.

Cons: Control buttons (mute and volume control) are small and awkward to use for adult size fingers. Instructions supplied with unit were not current and required contact with Sonos to activate. Latest Sonos tablet android app is somewhat confusing and definitely not an improvement over original. Sonos customer service was unable to answer questions immediately when queried

Sonos and the Play 1 are an absolute joy to listen to. I already owned a Play 5, and wanted to add a second zone. The Play 1 packs plenty of power to fill average sized rooms, and the sound quality is incredible. Sonos products are expensive but worth every penny from my experience.

Sonos PLAY:1 is seriously awesome!

Written by: Timbo from Chicago, IL on May 8, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I debated for a long time on whether I should purchase a PLAY:3 or PLAY:1 for the kitchen. I have a PLAY:3 in my bedroom and absolutely love it so I had concerns that the PLAY:1 wouldn't able to properly "fill" my kitchen with enough audio. I'm happy to report that the PLAY:1 does an amazing job; the audio is very crisp and it produces shockingly clean lows. Granted, I live in a townhome so my kitchen is on the small-ish side and does not have an open design. If you have a room that's more "vast", you might want to opt for the PLAY:3 or PLAY:5 to increase your chances of the audio reaching all areas. The build quality, as with all SONOS products, is top-notch.

Pros: Amazing sound quality from small package. Easy set-up. "Wife-proof".

Cons: NONE! BUY IT!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Love this speaker. I can't believe the sound quality from such a small speaker. I can't wait to add a few more to my home and fill the house with music.

Pros: Sound quality is great. Super lows and clear highs. Sonos software is great. I can play anything on any iPhone, iPad, iTunes library and dozen of streaming services.

Cons: They take a minute to "boot up" when you plug them in but they run their own operating system so it's expected.

Play:1 better than Play:5

Written by: MarkH from Bothell, WA on April 29, 2014

I have four Play:5's and four Play:1's in my loft and find that I enjoy listening to the Play:1 more than the Play:5. Very surprised at the tight and accurate bass response from the Play:1. The bass from the Play:5 is flat and sometimes distorted, but what can you expect from a 3 1/2" subwoofer. The mids and highs are very nice as well. Save yourself some money and build your Sonos system using the Play:1

Pros: Awesome sound from a very compact unit. Very stylish in design. Excellent build quality.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Sonos Play 1: Awesome Speaker

Written by: AJ from Overland Park, KS on April 28, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sonos brings to the masses wireless music streaming, flexibility and great sound at an affordable price point with the Play 1 speaker. An attractive compact speaker that can fit virtually anywhere one would like. Its diminutive size packs a colossal punch with great mid-bass and excellent highs. Sounds great as a single speaker to bring music anywhere you like and even better as a stereo pair that creates an excellent soundstage. Its the only speaker in the Sonos line that incorporates resistance to humidity to make it an excellent speaker for a bathroom. At this price, it's a great speaker... just add the Sonos Bridge to make it fully portable. Note: Only a single Sonos Bridge connected to your router is required for multiple Sonos components. At present I have Play 1 x 6, Play 3 x 2, Sonos Sub x 2, Sonos PlayBar x 1 and Sonos Connect x 2 all unified by a single Sonos Bridge connected to my router! Incredible!

Pros: Read my review it's all there!

Cons: None per se...unless you consider the requirement to have a Sonos Bridge to make the Play 1 portable

Because our 2 sons have about 5 sonos speakers in their homes we would fall in love with the music all over the house. They even brought 3 speakers to the beach house and we had music all over the house all week. so we decided to take the plunge. we liked the sonos play 1 as a starter speaker and it only gets turned off at bedtime. It is clear sounding, easy to move over the house from room to room, gives off plenty of sound and we have decided that we will be investing again in more speakers for our home. it is a MUST TO PURCHASE AND YOU WILL NEVER LIVE IN SILENCE IN YOUR HOME AGAIN.

I was initially hesitant about ordering two of these, after purchasing a Sonos 5, and Sonos 3, but wanted to have a small footprint speaker for our lanai, and one for our master bedroom. There is ambient noise on the lanai, and we are up 12 floors, so we also have nice breezes, for the sound to overcome. This little guy is great! Certainly not the bass capacity of either the 3, or 5, but quite good enough for the job. Also, works great in the bedroom, when I can turn off all other speakers, while my wife watches late movies in the den, and I can set the timer for 30 minutes and listen to some soft classical while going to sleep.

This is a great product and for me it was money well spent. I am very impressed with this product. For the size the sound is great and the Sonos app/controller works great using my smartphone and tablet.

Pros: Sounds very good for size of speaker. Produces sufficient volume but I would not call it powerful. Very nice Sonos app - very easy to use and well laid out. Speaker and bridge setup was very easy. Blends well into any room - very small and unobtrusive.

Cons: Does not appear to work with the free version of Spotify.
