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®, Apple Music™, 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.
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.
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.
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.)
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.
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.
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.

Pros: great sound and easy to expand
First - Incredible sound, especially from a speaker with such a small footprint. Second - incredible product overall. Third - incredibly easy to set- up ... Even I was able to do it with to help whatsoever.
Pros: Sound, easy to set- up and basic use.
Cons: Deciding what was best for my purpose ... Play 1 or 3, but Crutchfield helped me make the right decision.
I bought these to replace a Bowers & Wilkins A5 AirPlay speaker for my living room. For the price per pair, the Play:1 offers much better sound (set as a stereo pair) for less money. What's more, the Sonos network is far more stable than my AirPlay connection to the A5 ever was. It starts streaming as soon as I hit the play button. Setup and tuning were simple and quick, though it did take a while to map my iTunes music library on the desktop software.
Pros: Good value, great sound, easy setup
Cons: Better as a pair
I first heard a Sonos Play 1 at my daughter's home...wondered where the great music was coming from. She showed me her Sonos Play 1 speaker and her iPhone, explaining that she could control all aspects of the speaker from her phone or from her iPad. Such great sound was coming from that little speaker perched on the top of a bookcase; it would have strained credibility had I not seen and heard it for myself. Since I almost constantly listen to music from my iPhone, I was excited about the proposition of hearing such good sound quality with a small, easy-to-install speaker. I bought a Sonos as soon as I got home and had it set up within 10 minutes--including reading directions. Even though the physical setting is different in my home than it was in my daughter's, the speaker sounds just as good. For a person who needs to be surrounded with music, the Sonos Play1 seems almost too good to be true.
Pros: *Rich sound *Easy set-up *Will fit in many spots in a home because it is amazingly small for such great sound
Cons: I hate to turn it off so that my husband can watch television...compromise, compromise, compromise...
I am truly floored by the high ratings this unit gets. I cannot imagine I'm the only person to dislike this unit. I've been using my Sonos Play for about a year now. While the sound is rich and full, I am giving up on it because of its unfriendly, unintuitive interface. I listen to a lot of podcasts. First, you must play all files through the proprietary Sonos app, which only recognizes files that are downloaded to your device, no streaming content. It does not speak to your other apps, such as iTunes, etc, so I am constantly frustrated with the unit. As a podcast updates over the course of its life, the Sonos unit perceives the podcast as a totally different entity or "artist" with each update. So, you will have several of the same icons that will each have different files within. Unlike iTunes, there is no access to the music/podcast from your phone while it is in locked mode. You must unlock your phone, and go to the app to pause, stop, fast-forward or rewind. There is also no option to ff or rewind by 15 second intervals, so if you miss something and want to go back doing so is very sloppy. On some files, the app does not recognize the progression of the play at all, so there is no going back or forward at all. Also, in addition to my iPhone 6+, which is what I usually use, I have an old iPad. The old device cannot interact with the Sonos at all. That's not a big deal, but it just adds to the list of annoying features of the unit. I am done!
Pros: Sounds great. Nice looking unit.
Cons: Proprietary interface is terrible.Crutchfield response on May 9, 2016 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Customer Support team. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.
My previous sound system died. I was used to the ease of controlling the system from a tablet so after doing some research online, I settled on the Sonos Play series speaker. However, I did not know which model, the 1, the 3, or the 5, would best work for me. I visited the Crutchfield retail store in Charlottesville where I was helped by the knowledgeable and very helpful, Mark. After I explained my room dimensions he recommended that I purchase two Play 1's which would provide stereo separation in my 20x20 room. I purchased the two Play 1's at Crutchfield and took them home where the ease of setup was noteworthy. I am using an Ipad Mini to control the speakers with the Sonos app. Not only is the sound amazing but the interface on the app is amazingly easy to use. I have all of my Pandora stations plus Radio Paradise as well as my favorite radio stations on the app. I highly recommend the speakers as the sound quality is off the charts. And, Crutchfield's prices are competitive with Amazon so wouldn't you rather support a small, locally-owned company than the behemoth Amazon? The service and customer support at Crutchfield at without peer.
Pros: 1. Ease of setup 2. Versatility of music and radio offerings through the Sonos app 3. The sound quality is amazing.
Heavy duty little speaker. Great sound quality for the size. Easy set-up.
Pros: Sound quality for it's size. Ease of set-up.
Cons: Not very portable. No battery option.
It is almost unbelievable to see this little speaker and then, to hear the richness of the sound it produces. Amazing. The setup is extremely easy and the Sonos application is a marvel. We have the speakers in the two places we own and the application immediately recognizes where we landed and connects to the speakers seamlessly.
Pros: Rich sound, easy set up, great application, multi-room and multi-home capable
Crutchfield does not disappoint! They had the very best price on the Sonos Play 1 and I had been itching to add to my system with a bathroom speaker. Took literally 10 seconds to connect it, and another 10 to add it to my group. Bam, music! Sounds rich and wonderful. I plan to buy a play 3 for my bedroom as soon as I can get a great deal, Sonos is the BEST
Pros: small easy to install and use sounds great
Cons: cost is high
Fills my large kitchen with great sound. Very easy to set up. Any problems and Sonos is extremely helpful.
I was thinking of installing an expensive, whole house, sound system until I spoke with customer service at Crutchfield. He correctly suggested the Sonos Play 1 or Play 3 to satisfy my needs. He was right. I initially purchased 2 and a week later, because it was so easy to set up and such great sound that I ordered a 3rd Play 1 for a 3rd room. I love the ease of setting up and running the system and the sound quality and volume is perfect for our house.
Big sound from small speaker. Easily portable.
Pros: Easy SONOS app setup. Easily portable. Great SONOS feature for all speakers is the ability to group/ungroup multiple speakers. Very Cool stuff!
This is one of my best purchases in the last decade. The sound quality is great and the installation couldn't be easier. The control software from Sonos is very well done, making it easy to move speakers to new locations and re-grouping. You have total control over the speakers from any computer and most mobile devices. I did find that there was no software for my Windows phone but I have several different tablets and software was available for them.
Pros: Excellent product and easy installation
Cons: No software available for Windows phone
Big sound in a small package.
Pros: Arrived when promised, easy set up, sounds great in my office.
Cons: The power cord. A cordless option would be awesome!
Great Sound, Easy Set Up, Quick Delivery Only wish Sonos 1 had auxiliary outlet
Pros: Great Sound,Easy Set UP, Quick Delivery Crutchfield is always consistently excellent in their Customer Service
Cons: Would like a Auxiliary outlet on Sonos1
Fantastic, especially for a wireless product that is ~3"x 5.5" Wonderful Sound & very easy to use. Controls are very intuitive.
Speakers sound great for their size. Was able to get operational in a commercial setting by disabling the WIFI in the speaker so it did not broadcast as it would create issues in our facility with the existing WIFI running on 2.4 Ghz. Each speaker is plugged into Ethernet and works like a charm. Now the speakers don't compete with other WIFI uses in the building and to control the speakers requires one to be plugged into our network, which is pretty rare as most use phones w/in our facility.
Pros: Great sounding, amount of online music sources, speaker mount in back, style
Cons: Would be nice if from PC could talk over the speakers for announcements. Not a con so much as a great feature.
This is our 2nd. SONOS Play 1 and it was very easy to hook up in our upstairs loft. We love the quality of the sound and the variety of music and other stations we are able to get.
Pros: Came fast Easy to set up Just what we wanted
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 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)
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 sound in a small package
Pros: Small but with a great sound. It fills up the room.
Love the ease of connectivity, clarity, and quality. Will definitely continue to expand my system.
Pros: Size, sound ratio. Ease of set up. Simple to use.
Cons: Wish they could be chargeable
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)
I have 8 of these speakers around my condo. Awesome sound in a small package. Incredible system overall
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
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
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.
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!
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
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.
Sonos made a great first impression on me with the Play1. Very easy to set up and use. The sound is good for its size.
Pros: Size Ease of use
Cons: Not compatible with all music services
Fantastic compact speaker,exceptionally well-made.
Pros: Great sound.
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
We have only had the TV for a short time, so I don't have a lot to say. It was really easy to get everything set up.
Pros: Easy set-up
Works great. Easy setup. Not as much "sound" as a play 5 but good for a room
Pros: good sound, easy setup
Arrived before eta. Works great!
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 sound from a small package! Easy to set up, great customer support, and great music choices through the app.
Pros: Sound, size, app.
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.
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.
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 ! :)
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)
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
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.
Easy to set up, easy to use, and great sound. What more can you ask for?
Pros: Small, good sound, easy to use.
Cons: A bit pricey...
I already own a Play5 and am pleased with this model as well. Definitely recommend for the price, sound is great and fills up our whole basement.
Pros: Wifi is WAY better than bluetooth for music streaming
Got this speaker to use by the pool and I am more than happy with its performance. Its a great speaker and I would recommend it to anyone who's thinking about buying one.
Pros: Its all good
Cons: None so far
Use it throughout the house - kitchen, bedrooms, office. Takes up very little shelf space, has a deep, rich sound. I will add more as needed.
Let me tell you these little speakers sound well. These are heavy and were wall mounted without issues. I am using these as a surround sound to complement playbar. The surround sound is awesome. Wireless is advantage and i have no issues with any delays etc. I recommend it.
Pros: good sound high volumes nice bass easyly added to make surround sound
Cons: pricy no input
A nice sounding little speaker that's wireless to boot.
Pros: Nice balanced sound, wireless connected!
I've owned all their speakers, all are great but the Play 1 is actually the most surprising given it's size. They can absolutely hold their own and will fill a medium room no problem.
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.
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
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.
Great clear sound. Decent bass sound from a small speaker. Nice compliment to the other Sonos speakers in the house.
Pros: Small, good sound.
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.
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.
These speakers are awesome did not expect these speakers were loud and crisp
Pros: wireless connection and the controlling app. is good
Cons: does not use blue tooth to play
We continue to be impressed by this speaker. Great sound for the price. My husband couldn't believe it worked as well as he did (and he's a picky music guy!)
This little guy provides impressive sound quality especially when paired with another play 1 in stereo mode. So far I have two play 1s and the sub in the same room and they sound incredible. Even though Sonos is a hard pill to swallow as far as price is concerned, its worth it.
Pros: Sound quality Ease of use
Great set of speakers. Good sound, no wires, versatile and set up took less than 5 minutes
Pros: Convenience and sound
Cons: None so far
Love it! It's small enough to move to wherever I am. Wether I'm working in the garage or in back on the deck, it provides incredible sound.
Pros: Crisp sound, portability
Cons: Maybe a longer cord, but I'm nit picking.
Awesome little speakers, nice for their size. You get the most out of them when you stereo pair them. Have a large living room, dining room combo. Have 2 on my 2 end tables and a play 5 across on the opposite end in the center. Sounds awesome
Pros: Little speaker delivering nice sound for the size
Can't say enough good things about Sonos. I link to Spotify and have a world of the best sounding music.
Pros: Superior sound quality, ease of use
Wonderful sound for a unit that takes up almost no space. I have 5 SONOS units in the house, and they provide for seamless listening from room to room.
Pros: Totally reliable, no downtime.
Great sound and quality for one room.
Pros: Outstanding quality and sound for a little guy.
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 was my first Sonos purchase and I'm hooked! Great sound and so easy to set up. Having so much fun with it - I am ordering my second Play 1! I can't wait to have speakers in several rooms!
Pros: Great sound from such a small speaker; easy to set up.
The product's performance is great, no complains, thus far. However, there appears to be no way to turn it off (i.e., it's always in wait mode, thus using power)
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.
I have two play 1s, a play 3, and a playbar. Do not over think this one. This is sonos best product. Just buy it. I like all my sonos products, but love the play 1s.
The only down side is that this one speaker is so great we'll be buying at least one more.
Pros: sound, convenience, ease of setup
We added this extra speaker to our Sonos system and it is a great addition which allows for beautiful music to be heard throughout our home.
Pros: Simple to set up. Great speakers. Beautifully manufactured and artistic to look at.
Excellent. like flexibility
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.
Cool product, easy to set up, this is the 2nd one I bought, use it in my wood shop
This is my 4th Sonos Play 1. Very good music sound for its size. Need I say more.
Pros: Very good sound, easy to hook up, anyone can install it. Small, but big sound. A joy to turn on and off,adjust volume,and select music from my IPad or iPhone.
Cons: Can't think of any.
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.
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
Pros: Excellent audio, simple and quick set up, full selection of music services.
This speaker has amazing sound for such a small speaker and it was extrmemly easy to add to my existing system, even if this is your first Sonos speaker the initial system setup is super easy and quick. These speakers are addicting, once you buy one, you won't be able to stop!
Pros: Easy to use, great sound, very simple setup when adding to a current system or setting up as new system
Perfect for the kitchen as a pair or in the small office; wonderful full sound
Pros: Small, attractive; easy to mount on wall or stand on shelf; great sound with no wires and easy to control from computer or i-Pad.
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
Just bought two of these speakers and the sound quality is excellent! I already had a Sonos Play5, and I have to say that the pair of Sonos Play1's outperform it easily in terms of sound quality
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.
Awesome! The sound is fantastic. The software makes installation in your home network a breeze even without the proprietary Sonos Bridge or Boost. I have one speaker working wireless on a generic router home network. Works great. This is not cheap, but I am really glad Santa brought it.
Pros: Great audio. Intuitive software.
I purchased this unit as an addition to an existing Sonos system. My intent was to use it in a small room but it is more than adequate for larger rooms too.
Pros: easy set-up, portable, moisture resistant for use in our large bathroom.
Cons: I only wish it was less expensive.
We love the Sonos products! Easy to install and great sound. I am glad I purchased the Play 1 over the Play 3. It puts out enough sound for the master bedroom. My kids live the system because they can easily control what is playing from their iPhones.
Pros: Easy install. Easy to play what ever music you want I what ever room you want. Great if you have teenagers.
I love sonos but they do not tell you the proubdut does not work with sound bar and TV only sound bar works even when set up that way. Fine with music but not tv
Awesome WiFi sound system
Pros: Nice sound from a small system
Cons: Pictures make it seem much bigger
The sonos play 1 works well. It provides good sound in a small package. It's a bit pricy but was seamless to set up and portable. Sound is great for small area uses
Pros: Small, good sound, app makes it nice to control
Cons: A bit pricey
I bought two of the Play 1's along with Playbar and Sub and I couldn't be happier! Sonos is a fantastic product and I have no regrets at all, it sounds wonderful!
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
Cons: A little pricey
Love the Sonos system. So easy to set up, great sound and great music selections. We gave this Sonos as a gift. They were hesitant at first, but saw how easy it was to use, now they love it! Highly recommend Sonos.
Pros: Easy to use; easy to set up, great selection
Its a hefty little cube, but for a good reason. The sounds is clear and fills a room well. We had a little trouble setting up the wireless connection, but I think it might have been due to a weak signal from the router.
Pros: Good sound Small A lot of sound for its size
Cons: Connecting wireless was a little confusing
This LITTLE guy sounds great! I put one in my kitchen on top of the cabinet and It fills the space perfectly. It has a very rich and full sound. I also own a 5, Play Bar and subs. The quality is consistent.
Pros: Small foot print, Great, full sound.
Great sound out of a small speaker. Clarity and depth and ease of setting up. The only minus is that you have to use Sonos' own software to make them play. I'd like to be able to use any music or other media software like Windows media player to hear the music in my library.
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.
I bought several play 1, play 3, play 5, playbar and sub for my husband for Xmas. We love the whole system. Very easy to set up. 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.
Pros: Quality, ease of set up, ease of operation
This Sonos Play 1 is our first wireless speaker system and we cannot be more pleased. Set up to our wireless network was simple and we have had to no problems at all. The speaker sounds very good and the size is great for making the speaker hidden out of the way
Pros: Simple set up. Solid sounds for the price. Small size so it is easy to put the speaker out of the way.
Cons: None so far.
Extremely east to set-up and sound is excellent. I purchased a Bose product with Air Play and I experienced numerous issues with keeping it hooked up with my network. No such problems with the Sonos and the it sounds better that the Bose (to me). I will definitely be purchasing more of the Sonos Play speakers for the rest of the house.
Pros: Easy set up and great sound.
Love the sound!
I have owned several songs products thought the years, they work great but they have been quite costly; since they have introduced the play 1, can't beat the size and price
Pros: Size, and price
Cons: Still expensive but quite a bit cheaper than play 2
Sound is good, perhaps a bit better than my Bose mini blue tooth but not much. Very nice system for playing tunes and could see where having multiples of these would be great. Will probably buy one or two more for different rooms or stereo set up.
Pros: Good sound , flexible set up
Cons: A bit pricey
Simply amazing! Setup couldn't be easier and the sound quality is very good! Highly recommended!
Pros: Super easy setup, quality
Cons: Not really a con, but you get what you pay for.
The sound exceeded my expectations. I listened to a display model in a store and the sound was fine. I ordered the speaker from Crutchfield and got it right on time. The actual sound in the house was much richer than I expected. I ordered a second Play 1 speaker so I can use the pair as surround sound with the Sonus Playbar.
Pros: Super easy to connect on the Sonus system. Great sound from a small speaker.
I am very impressed by the ease of the Sonos system and the clear sound. We added a Play 1 to our existing two Play 5s. The Play 1 sounds nearly as full as the Play 5s - amazing base for such a small speaker. Very open sound and about to order more!
There is nothing bad to say about songs. From installation to customer service, all good.
Sonos makes an excellent product. Good sound, Excellent connectivity and simple to use.
Pros: Excellent customer service if ever needed.
Cons: Isn't cheap but worth the rather small investment.
Great system! Great Speaker! Very easy to set up or add to existing system! Put them all over your home!
Pros: Easy, great sound
Sonos is just like Apple. Everything just works! They make the hardware and the software so it all works seamless. Each room plays music in a different zone with no clipping. I sold my Play 5's and use these instead! They have a smaller footprint and sound about the same but save you $$$. No bridge is needed for it to work!! Just plug and play!
Exceptional sound quality and attention to detail. A breeze to set up.
Pros: The Play1 is more than adequate for large rooms
Cons: Its still a bit pricey.
Very east to setup and sound is great! The control app easy to use and very flexible.
Pros: Easy setup. Good sound. Nice control app.
Phenomenal speaker ! Sylish, compact, great sounding high quality system. Very easy and intuitive to set up . The control app is perfect ! Clear graphics and stress free operation. Really like the Sonos product line. Flexible, expandable, stylish, well built and great sounding speakers.
Pros: Powerful perfomer for a compact size speaker. High quality construction. Good bass response and crystal clear highs ! Able to add another Play 1 and create a stereo pair to expand the soundstage even further. Nice styling and easy to set up and use.
Cons: None at all.
I was a little reticent buying such a small speaker, but I needn't have worried! This is an excellent speaker, which I have in my kitchen - and it fits the need perfectly!
Pros: Small, compact, easy to set up and use
Cons: No "cons" - delighted with it!
We have both the sonos1 in the kitchen and the sonos connect amp with old polk speakers in the living room. I can play them in unison or I can play them independently. I usually run pandora or music straight off my iPhone. Easy setup. App can be sluggish at times but overall I haven't had any issues. Sounds great for the size. Love it.
Pros: Easy setup. Works great. Sounds great. Small size. Perfect for the kitchen.
Cons: App responsiveness can be sluggish at times.
Don't be fooled by the small size of this SONOS speaker. It's truly amazing the full clear sound that comes from a PLAY:1. I used them for two of my smaller rooms and also put one in the corner of a large room.
Pros: The sound... the sound... Excellent!
Great product, also a great gift to give out this christmas.
Pros: Ease of use, grest sound, well built.
Cons: A bit too costly but then again I save on not having to wire the whole house and it needs no receiver nor amplifier.
The Play 1s are small with good sound, I use them as satelites with a sound bar and Sub. Not sure how they would sound as stand along speakers. They can be placed out of the way to be "heard but not seen". I have them set up as surround I have not figured out a quick way to switch back and forth when alternating TV and music.
Pros: Very small and discreet. Work well as surround sound satelites.
This is my 7th Sonos speaker which filled out my 7th zone in my house. This is the only Play:1 that I own and it is surprisingly INCREDIBLE. Purchased for a large kitchen and it more than does the job. Very impressed with the bass on this thing considering its size. Might not have as much bass as the Play:3 and Play:5 but that is expected. Overall, an awesome speaker WELL worth the price! Thanks for carrying a great product line Crutchfield!
Pros: Small, great bass and highs, great looking, innovative speaker
Simple to use; reasonable fidelity. Recommended
Best audio product on market. Software is easy. Sound good. User interface simple
Great sound for such small package. I had it configured and playing music in mere minutes.
Pros: Portable, easy to setup and control, wireless, uses existing iTunes library, easy to update
I absolutely love this speaker. The sound is crisp and there is no loss of quality at higher volumes. I plan to add another Play 1 and possibly a Play 3.
Pros: Sound quality, simple to set up
I purchased my second Sonos PLAY 1 so I could use them in a stereo setting. I couldn't be more pleased with the sound of these wireless speakers and ease of use.
It's a Sonos. Not much else to say. The sound is great for a bedroom or small office. The controls cannot be beat. And hear tell a bridge is no longer required for wi-fi love. If you don't own one you're cheating yourself. If you do own one, you will probably be buying more.
Easy to install...great sound ...good value... will prob add a second play 1 to run in a full stereo mode although sound is great in standalone
Love the Sonos Play 1. We bought it because it's portable. We can take it outside or into the workshop. We're still working on getting a stronger Wifi signal, but that's not Play 1 issue. Great sound.
Pros: small, portable, good sound
Cons: wifi only, so signal has to be good to take further outside
Just so great to take this anywhere in the house and have a great sounding system
Pros: Very Portable, sounds great in medium to small rooms
Cons: Not big enough for large open rooms....but that is not what I bought it for.
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: Superb sound, very easy to set up & use.
Cons: sorry, I can't think of any.
Awesome product. Great sound from a small footprint. Sonos products are great.
Pros: Simplicity to connect to your network.
Great product and sound
Pros: Compact and easily moved
Cons: Could be louder.
Sonos sounds great, works easy, functions responsively, and is there when you need it. What more do you need? Sure, I can use airplay or bluetooth but neither delivers all these advantages. I can personally attest to that as I tried all those before I decided to shell out the money. I was slowly expanding the system from the two Play:1s & soundbar but I'll be adding more pretty soon at this rate.
Pros: Easy to setup Easy to use Sounds great Responsive Reliable Goes anywhere
Have had trouble setting up with the arrival of the last of a 3 speaker system. Have had to reset up a few times. Glitches. Sound is really really nice for such a small speaker. Love the ease of control. Would like a little more with regards to some of the modes. No Apple AirPlay. :(
Pros: Sound Ease of control
Cons: No Apple AirPlay
I bought two Sonos Play: 1 speakers - one for the living room and one for the kitchen. Great sound, and I really like the Sonos system. Very simple to use, and I love that you can add more speakers VERY simply later on if you decide to expand the system.
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.
I have a couple of play bars with subs but the 1's are easily the best for the buck and I love my play bars.
Pros: great sound
Cons: not with the 1's
Great sound, look and size as well as very easy set up.
Pros: You can add more speakers as you go/need arises
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
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
Speaker sounds great. Love the control I have over my music..
Pros: Easy to set up. Easy to use. A over all great whole house music system that puts you in control.
Cons: I wish they would make a outdoor speaker.
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
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!
Pros: Nice compact style and easy setup.
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
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.
So impressed with my original Sonos set up I ordered a play 1 for my spouses office. It was (is) a big hit. Thanks for a great product.
Pros: Easy no nonsense set up. Good sound. Unobtrusive.
Great phone app you can hear world radio stations and stream anything from you personal library
Pros: Great phone app
Cons: need to be connected to the router not completely wireless or need a bridge.
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.
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!!
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.
love sonos. would not have thought about buying the one except the sales man showed me how it sounds compared to the 5. Can't wait to get more. The sound is wonderful. Everything they were advertised to be.
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
Item was easy to set and run well of my I Phone and computer
.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.
