All the music you want — anywhere in your home

Access Pandora® Internet radio, Rhapsody®, Spotify, iHeartRadio, Napster®, SiriusXM, and 100,000 free Internet radio stations — no matter where you are in your home. The compact Sonos® PLAY:3 lets you enjoy music from the Internet as well as songs stored on your home computers — 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.

Expand to any (or every) room

Place Sonos players, like the PLAY:3 and the larger 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

You probably already own a Sonos controller

You can use an iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad®, or Android™ phone 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.

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

The Sonos system works seamlessly with a host of Internet-based digital music services, including Rhapsody, Pandora, Napster®, and SiriusXM Internet Radio. Rhapsody offers instant access to millions of songs and ad-free radio stations. SiriusXM Internet Radio gives you access to over 80 channels of programming. Every Sonos system includes free 30-day trials of these two services, so you can start listening the moment you take it out of the box. Pandora creates customized Internet radio streams just for you — all you have to do is enter the name of your favorite song or artist. And because Sonos connects directly to the Internet for all of these music services, you don't even have to turn on your PC.

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

Sonos now gives you convenient wireless access to music and podcasts stored in the Music app of 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 multiple Apple players at once. For instance, you can queue up songs from your iPhone to play in the kitchen while you cook, and your spouse can stream a podcast in the den 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.

Great sounding Play:3

Written By V.L., Virginia on Monday, November 16, 2015

I was pleasantly surprised with how good this speaker sounds for such a small footprint. I have this on a nightstand in a large bedroom and the sound rivals another famous brand larger wireless speaker. It took a few tries to get it connected wirelessly, but once connected it was easy to get iTunes, Pandora and all of my other internet stations synced. I also added a Play:1 in the master bathroom and I love how music syncs perfectly. I will be adding the new Play:5 in the kitchen, once it becomes available. I'm sold on Sonos!

Pros: Easy to sync your music. Very good sound quality. The Sonos app is great. Love the sleep timer and alarm.

Cons: It took multiple tries to get it connected wirelessly.

Easy setup and great sound

Written By Dave, Michigan on Saturday, November 14, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound and easy setup. I did have to try connecting twice before it connected properly with the home wireless router, but I do not blame the sonos player for that issue. Highly recommended as you can easily move it from one room to another as needed.

Great sound for such a small speaker!

Written By MattS, Wyoming on Thursday, November 05, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We've used Sonos amps to run in-ceiling speakers, but this is the first Sonos speaker that we purchased (for portable use on the deck) and the sound quality is surprisingly good for such a small speaker. We're already big fans of the Sonos interface and the number of streaming options and now we're sold on their speaker quality too!

Pros: Small, great sound quality, easy interface

Cons: A bit expensive, but I think you get what you pay for

Sonos Play 3

Written By John B, Lincoln, Nebraska on Monday, July 13, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased a Play 1 for our basement a few months ago because on poor radio reception, and was so pleased and impressed with the sound I purchased a Play 3 for our newly remodeled Kitchen. It fills the entire room with a truly deep and rich sound much superior to the radio and radio reception we had previously. I'm sold on Sonos !

Pros: Deep and Rich sound with no loss of signal like a radio. Easy set-up.

Cons: None

SONO Play 3

Written By Emil, Connecticut on Monday, July 13, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great compliment to my SONOS system. Definitely will add other speakers.

Pros: Great sound.

Great software, Mediocre sound quality

Written By ChicagoAndy, Illinois on Monday, June 08, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This unit sits next to a Bose Wave speaker in my home and sounds muffled in comparison. Mid-tones are lost, and the high's sound tinny. Overall it sounds like the speaker is wrapped in a blanket.

I very much love the Sonos software, but this speaker left me far from impressed with the audio quality.

Pros: Slick software, great integration.

Cons: Sound quality is mediocre at best - comparable speakers from companies like Bose (and even Logitech) sound much better.

Another great product from SONOS

Written By Tman, Annapolis, MD on Thursday, June 04, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Killer product. This in the 8th room/zone in my collection and I couldn't be happier. It has great sound and bass whether it is being used inside or out. And there is plenty of volume.

Pros: Volume, sound, base, appearance, construction

Cons: Takes a minute or two to be "discovered" when first plugged in. Smooth sailing thereafter.

Great product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great product, my second Play:3. Love them in groups, love them in Stereo mode, and can individually adjust volume levels in group mode. Great sound quality and plenty of setting options for my needs.

Pros: sound quality, stereo options, group options

Cons: none for me

Superior Product

Written By DavidB, Maryland on Tuesday, June 02, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I started with Play1 and then ordered a Play:3, then two more Play:1's. Play 1's are in kitchen, den, bedroom, and Play:3 covers living & dining rooms. I generally do not blast music, but testing out the volume of these was certainly impressive. I believe the Play:3 would meet even the most demanding audiophile's needs for a larger room, perhaps up to 400 ft2 or so. The sound quality is exceptional, and the SONOS system is user-friendly and easy to set up. I liked buying from Crutchfield: great service, fair price, and everything came quickly, well-packaged, and unopened. I would highly recommend this product, and all SONOS products, and this seller.

Pros: Superior quality, excellent sound, easy to set up, great system.

Cons: Pricier than other options, but well worth the money.

Great Sound

Great big sound. I use outside on the patio, and it fills the space. I will purchase again.

very pleased

Written By Chris, North Carolina on Wednesday, May 27, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We are very pleased. We have never had an up to date sound system and we could not be happier. I got the two Play 3's and we are probably going to add at least one more. I was thinking that we would use it mainly for entertaining, but my wife likes to play her music all the time.

Pros: easy to unpack and works perfectly with Spotify

Cons: Took a little work to figure out how to get the playlist going. I had to enlist the help of a 17 year old who had no problem with it.

Great product

Written By Ken, Arizona on Thursday, May 14, 2015

This is my second Sonos product, I have a Sonos Play 5 in a large shop area at work and it sounds awesome. I have the Sonos Play 3 in my living room and sometimes take it on the back patio and it works great and sounds great in a smaller area.

Pros: Great sound for a small speaker.

Cons: Some connection issues with the smartphone app.

Perfect little speaker

Written By RM, NY on Monday, April 27, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect little speaker. I don't think I would be happy with the Play 1 that's why I only have the 3's. Just pay the extra $100 already you cheapo.

Pros: Awesome sound for a smaller speaker

Written By Guy W., Florida on Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Very nice size and excellent sound from these wireless speakers. Setting up the system was very easy using the Sonos application on my phone.

Pros: Wireless which makes placement very easy. Using the Sonos app. you can adjust settings to make your placement. Everything can be controlled from your phone including volume and equalization.

Cons: None

Sonos Play 3

Written By joe v, New Jersey on Wednesday, March 25, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My third Play 3. One in the Kitchen, Two as a stereo pair in the living room. Amazing range for such a small box. When Sonos says "All The Music on Earth", they are not kidding. Jazz in the Living Room, Classical in the kitchen, at the same time! Never had a problem with drop outs or shutting down, just plays and plays. Some say it's little get what you pay for! My boost is on the second floor, speakers are on the problem!

Pros: easy setup apps for mobile devices great sound

Cons: none

Sonos Players

Written By Danp, Kansas on Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These things are wonderful. I am using 1,3 and 5's really big sound in a small package. So nice to have sound everywhere in your home. The sound quality is excellent. If you pair them in stereo, OMG. As with any network device, It is best if you can wire it. Or in my case I wired as much of it as I could. I am in an apartment and there is a lot of interference. I had a lot of issues with the signal dropping, even with the Boost. I contacted SONOS customer service, WOW that is what customer service is supposed to be. I ran a diagnostic for them. Within a couple of minutes. they spotted the issue and I was able to correct it.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Wireless is wireless. But still better then bluetooth.

The 3's are worth the price difference over the 1's

Written By Michael S, New York on Tuesday, February 03, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Originally bought the Sound Bar with the Play 1's. It sounded tinny. Not enough bass from both components. And using the1's as back speakers for surround sound, I wasn't even sure they were on unless I went right up to them A week later I ordered the Subwoofer and the Play 3's. Hooked up the subwoofer 1st and the sound was much much better still using the 1's. Then I swapped out the 1's for the 3's and was even better and could distinctly here the 3's playing and adding much more to the surround effect than the 1's. I'm keeping the 1's for just a stand alone for deck or other rooms of the house.

Pros: Significantly better than the 1's

Cons: None

Great Sound

Written By Gard, Greene, Me on Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound and easy to set-up. Will add the small Play 1 for the Kitchen.

Pros: Rich sound and easy to connect to Pandora.

Cons: The Sonos controller has lost the connection to the Sonos system. Had to reboot The Sonos Boost.

Sounds great

Written By KenC, Vermont on Monday, January 05, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm pleasantly surprised at the quality sound that comes from this small speaker. Its sounds great. And the software is really easy to install on iPhones and iPads. My only beef is I had to reburn a bunch of old CD's because Sonos couldn't read the old iTunes metatag data for album names and ratings.

Pros: Sound, ease of use

Cons: Had to reburn old (loaded before 2007) CD's back into iTunes.

Everything it is supposed to be

Written By Dag, Tennessee on Sunday, December 28, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is stylish, sounds great, and hooks up just as simply as it says it will. I probably would have gotten a smaller one for my kitchen, but now that I know how good they are, I'll do that and move this one to a larger room. Really a full room, big speaker sound.

Pros: Great, rich sound. Easy to install.

Cons: None.

Kills The Competition

Written By BrettA, the Washington, DC Area on Saturday, December 27, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Seems a bit pricey, but sounds better than expected. At quiet volumes you miss a few of the upper mids and it seems a bit bassy, but at respectable and loud volumes it sounds great. It's dead easy to setup, and it has unmatched compatibility to different devices and services (Songza, etc.). The wireless is the way to go. We used to buy docks for our phones, but then you can't use your phones when they're playing music, and more importantly the docks become obsolete or incompatible when you get new phones (iPhones are particularly fussy - we use iPhones and Samsungs in this house and they both work with the Sonos). It's also cool that you can expand your system as much or as little as you want.

Pros: Compact. Easy to use. Quality sound. Expandable. Compatibility.

Cons: Price.

Sonos: Worse than crack.

Written By Carl, Erie, Pa on Monday, December 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I never tried "crack' but I'm guessing it's like Sonos stuff. Once you try it you just keep buying more and more of it even though it's crazy expensive. Started with one Play 5, then got another one and stereo paired them. Huge mistake! Now I just bought 2 Play 3s. They are surprisingly good but of course now I need to purchase the Playbar and the Sub ;( I think I need to rob a convenience store or something. Think I will check my wife's purse when I get home.

I am very happy with the Sonos speakers. I listen to music much, much more often since I purchased my first Play 5.

My advice is buy any of the Sonos speakers to get started and then figure out how you will pay for the rest later!

Pros: Simple to set up. Very convenient to use. Sound is very good (not perfect).

Cons: You have to turn to a life of crime to pay for the things! (Wonder if they will let me use them in jail?)

Excellent product

Written By Jim, Charleston, SC on Thursday, December 11, 2014

I paired the three with two ones and my house and they work great.

Pros: You can select individual speaker music and sound level.

Cons: It still has to be plugged in and there are no sonos outdoor speakers yet.


Written By Scott, South Carolina on Saturday, November 22, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Where to begin. Im a electrical engineer and thought this would be a pretty easy set up. Wow. This is not great, I really want to open this thing up and look at what they put in this. I guarantee it's not quality and the programming to run is not robust. I got it to play right out of the box. Thought, "Great just as advertised." Then it quit dropping, couldnt find the Sonos network. So I looked and test the signal thoughout the house (again) and found I had a strong wifi signal in every spot of the house. I reloaded it from scratch. And got it to work again. Then the same problems. After tinkering with location of the device, moving my entire computer and wifi system to more central area's of the house. Nothing. Then it quit working all together. So, I read about the "Boost". Went out and bought that, thought a hard wired dedicated SONOs network was the ticket. Problem is, nothing I do will get the boost to connect or come up. I again, deleted everything, reset everything and started from scratch. Again! Nothing. Wont work. I been reading allot of Blogs and it seem's I am not alone. A great idea in "theory" but the company just hasnt cracked the code. They really should actually test this stuff. But I am sure they are enough people in the bubble that this works for that it won't get fixed. Also, just so you know, any music from ITUNES before 2010 download will not play on SONOS. Unless you reload it all down again. Apple site usless.

Pros: Pretty packaging and smart concept.

Cons: Just isn't robust enough.

simply awesome

Written By Jim, Charlottesville, VA on Friday, November 21, 2014

The sound is incredible from such a small unit. Could not be simpler to set up - in 10 minutes I had it running from my laptop, phone and iPAD. Small enough that it can easily be moved from room to room if desired, but fills even a good-sized room with full-spectrum sound. A bonus is the software's connectivity to streaming radio from a huge number of stations/sites/genres. I'll be buying more of these for other parts of my house!

Pros: Small (portable) but still great sound Ease of setup Connectivity to wi-fi radio

Cons: none


Written By David W, Stuart, VA on Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Amazing sound from such a small unit. We use a Sonos bridge to play through the HIFI Amp and fixed speakers and this sublime to any room where we need additional sound - even in the garage if we go out there to throw some darts

Pros: Small, portable, light, great sound sand easy set up

Cons: None

Written By JerryH, Austin, Texas on Monday, October 20, 2014

Pros: Easy to set up and good sound.

Cons: Difficult to share music files.


Written By Morris, Brooklyn, NY on Saturday, September 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Simply amazing. Cheaper and better than a hard wired multi room sound system. And the best option even if you just want a single speaker to play music from your phone.

Pros: Setup can't be any simpler, sound quality is very very good, and the app is very well designed.

Cons: Addicting. I want to put one in every room of the house.

Nice Speakers

Written By RCB, LaVergne, TN on Saturday, July 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased two of the Play 3 speakers for our game room. Connected to our existing home Sonos system. We also purchased a pair of Bose speaker stands to hold the Play 3 speakers. Nice set-up and sound for a room that's about 20' x 30' in size. Full sound including decent bass without a sub. The Sonos system is so easy to use, it's now our #1 choice for adding more music zones to our home.

Pros: Good sound Well built Easy setup

Cons: None

Cons: No control from Chromebook or Fedora

Sonos Play 3

Written By Philo, Hudson, NY on Monday, June 16, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's part of a wonderful system and the expandability, level of control, and ease of use are outstanding. As for this piece itself, it is small and plug in wireless, solid yet unobtrusive and the sound is terrific. It's a miniature amp/speaker system that you can equalize from phone/computer, move around the house or outside; put a few of these together (I have 4) and you have a whole house wireless system with big clear sound and infinite control. Wonderful system so far; I've had it only two weeks or so and use it all the time.

Pros: Sound, size, portability, level and ease of control

Cons: None so far

Written By JimH, Niantic CT on Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It is a very good small speaker. I think the Play:5 should be considered if a full base response is desired. If a distinct stereo effect is desired, a second Play:3 can be added.

Pros: Good sound for its size, the 5 star rating accounts for not expecting room filling sound from a single speaker this size. Very easy to set up with the Bridge.

Cons: See review above.

great sound

Written By Steve C, Long Valley NJ on Friday, May 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

see my review under CONNECT:AMP. The PLAY3 added the ability to have great sound in any location not already receiving my Sonos connections. The sound is terrific, and it blows away competitors wireless components by Bose, Apple , and others.

Pros: EASY. GREAT sound, especially high and low freqs.

Cons: They should sell them in multi packs!


Written By Timbo, Chicago, IL on Friday, May 09, 2014

The Play:3 rules! Perfect for those larger rooms that the Play:1 can't quite fill all the way with sound. Clear sound, great lows, and (like all SONOS products) superb build quality. Set up is a breeze; SONOS has made the first 100% "wife-proof" system! My wife can whip out her smartphone and have SiriusXM blasting throughout the house in no time flat.

Pros: Easy setup; great sound; amazing build quality

Great Little Speaker

Written By Lee, Topeka, KS on Monday, April 14, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

In addition to my two play 5 speakers, this 3 is a great compromise because of its portability. The 3 is easy to take out to the garage or deck as compared to the 5 which is more of a stationary speaker because of its weight. The sound quality is an 8 compared to the 5 which is a 10. However, this is understandable because of the size of the speakers.

Pros: portability and sound

Cons: none

Wonderful product

Written By John, Media, PA on Tuesday, March 25, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The best products are simple to set and use, and do what they claim. Sonos is a shinning example. Not cheap, but you get your money's worth. However, Sonos is addictive; nobody will buy just one. Set up your first unit, and you will soon feel the urge to fill more rooms with Sonos sound and content.

Pros: Yeah...a bunch of them.

Cons: What to do with all my old CDs..hang them from my rear view mirror? Putting all of my bulky old sound equipment on Craigslist. Also, wishing I had discovered Sonos sooner.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I just receive my play 3 today. Currently I have 2 play5, 1 Connect amp with two bridges (my house is complicate lol). As always it took me more time opening the box than setting the equipment. I just swap one play5 from my master room to my office and replaced with play1 since I'm was looking for aux input for my office PC. It just fill my master room with outstanding and rich sound quality. Play 1, you are next..........

Pros: Easy setup, amazing sound, right price for the performance and functionality

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I recently purchased the Sonos Play:3 and I am very pleased. It was a breeze to setup, within 30 minutes I was able to access ALL my music stored on various computers throughout my home, music stored in Amazon Cloud, as well as, synched to my Pandora and Sirus XM accounts, with my PCs, Ipad and Android phone all set-up to control the unit! The sound was better than expected. Will be adding additional components to the system in the near future.

Pros: Ease of Set-up, compatibility with other devices and software. Sonos has an extensive forum with ideas, help guides and trouble shooting online. Great sound.

Cons: None so far

Great sound. Small package

Sonos Play 3

Great system - Easy set-up! I did a lot of research before choosing Sonos. It's the most versitile and has the best price of comparable systems. The best thing about the Sonos system is that you can play music in as many rooms as you have speakers in and you can play different music from different devices in different rooms. Wish the user interface instructions were a little more detailed; but Crutchfield has great customer service!

Sonos Play 3's with Playbar

Written By JG, Seattle, WA on Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought 2 Play 3's for a family room where TV watching with a Sonos Playbar or stand alone stereo listening would occur. The "balance" or "fade" between the Play 3's & Playbar is inadequate. There should be more control when associated with the Playbar. There should be an easier way to switch between stereo listening mode & TV-watching-with-a-Playbar mode. Because it is a hassle to reconfigure the Play 3's every time you associate it or disassociate it with the Playbar, it mostly sits in TV mode and the stereo capability isn't realized. That's a lot of wasted money. I would give the Play 3's a higher rating as stand alone speakers -- but that's not why I bought them.

Pros: The Play 3's sound great when they act as left and right channel speakers when not associated with the Playbar. Power plug only gives a clean install. Integrates seamlessly with other Sonos components.

Cons: It is a pain in the neck to disassociate the Play 3's from the Playbar to act as left and right channel speakers for stereo listening. It is a pain in the neck to associate the Play 3's with the Playbar every time you want to watch TV. You have to do the set-up procedure every time you switch between TV and stereo listening. I hope a software update can make this a lot easier because this is not user-friendly. The hype and extolled flexibility of this system didn't jive with the usability.

Purchased the Sonos Play 3 for my son and daughter-in-law as an early Valentine's Day gift - He/they LOVE IT! I also have a Play 3 and two Play 1's and absolutely love them.

Pros: Easy to set up - easy to use - just a joy to listen to.

Cons: So far - none.

The concept, setup, and functionality is great! You can easily set this up to stream music from a PC (or better yet a network drive) as well as seemingly any internet and internet streaming land radio station in the word....and of course internet based music services like Pandora. Control from a PC app is easy and fun. I've had NO issues with buffering, connectivity, or packet loss. The sound is also pretty good considering it's size. I really love this device, but I think you're paying for the concept and development. The components, especially the Connect:AMP which you can use to drive your own speakers, are fairly expensive for what you get. But again, you have to consider that Sonos is really in a category by itself. You're paying for the development.

Pros: Sound. Connectivity. Functionality. Easy set up.

Cons: Price Sonos Android app does not seem to be compatible with my tablet

Great product

Bought both the Sonos play 3 and 5. The three for my den and the five for our larger living room. The five certainly has bigger sound, with the bass, but I'm not discounting the three, as it does wonderfully in a smaller space, and accompanies the five nicely when played together in separate rooms with different volume levels, to give a 'stereo' effect. Bottom line is that I greatly enjoy both the three and the five, and will add another three for the master bedroom.

Pros: minimal footprint, great sound, effortless portability, easy set-up
