All the music you want — anywhere in your home

Access Pandora® Internet radio, Spotify®, Apple Music™, Rhapsody®, SiriusXM, and 100,000 free Internet radio stations — no matter where you are in your home. The compact Sonos® PPlay: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

The Sonos app gives you easy wireless control

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.

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:3 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, Apple Music, SiriusXM, and more at your fingertips

The Sonos system works seamlessly with a host of streaming music services, including  Spotify, Pandora,  Apple Music, 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.

Using an Alexa voice control assistant with your Sonos system

Sonos has introduced a new speaker that has Alexa voice control built right in — the Sonos One. It lets you select songs from compatible music services using nothing but your voice. You can also control your Alexa-compatible smart home devices with it.

But what if you already have Sonos speakers around your home, like the Play:3? You can get those same cool voice control features by adding an Alexa-compatible voice control assistant and pairing it with your existing Sonos system via the Alexa mobile app. Alexa will "see" all the rooms that you have set up in your Sonos system, and you can control music playback in all of them, simply by talking to your Alexa device.

Which music services work with Alexa?

Here's the list of music services you can control with Alexa (updated May 2018):

  • Spotify® (Premium account required)
  • Pandora®
  • Amazon Music
  • iHeartRadio
  • SiriusXM
  • Deezer/li>

Nice product, easy setup

Richard from Louisville, KY on 9/17/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great product; easy to set up, especially when you want to add speakers or other components to an existing account. The Sonos app works very well and allows multiple devices to control the playlist, which means someone can start playing music, can leave the house, and if someone else wants to take over playing music, the transition is seamless. I purchased two speakers and placed them both on the first floor - one in the kitchen and one in the living room so they are both playing the same thing. I look forward to putting them in stereo mode at some point just for fun. The only reason I am giving four starts instead of five is that even though the speakers provide more than enough volume for covering a moderately sized first floor such as my own, I thought there might be a little more "oomph" given the price. Nonetheless, this product meets the needs I have for it and I would recommend it to anyone else in a similar situation.

Pros: The app is is a breeze and offers a LONG list of other apps for listening to music, radio, podcasts, audio books, etc.; Good sound; Multiple speakers in multiple rooms works great when having a large number of guests

Cons: Sound quality and volume meets my needs, but I kind of expected a little more power.

I finally took the plunge and bought the Sonos Play:3, and I'm glad I did. For a single, self-contained unit, the sound is impressive. There's plenty of bass, mid, and upper range ... a real nice balance. Set up was simple and quick - even for someone who's not so technically savvy. It is even nice looking. Can't think of one negative thing to say about it.

Terrific speakers set up as a pair. They provide clean, crisp sound with just enough bass for my large great room. This is an awesome replacement for my big, clunky former stereo setup. Two wire, one on each. That's it! Tons of great internet audio services to stream until your hearts content. Highly recommend. And even better is ordering them from Crutchfield. I've been doing business with them for over 30 years and they've never failed me yet! Tried, true, and trusted!!

Good speakers!

D from Mattawan, MI on 1/21/2018

Very good speaker for my needs. Has enough bass for my smaller rooms and is small enough to use as a portable. Only takes a minute or so to re-connect to my system when unplugged. I like the fact that these speakers can stand upright or lay flat. I debate whether or not you need stands? Took advantage of the Sonos sale.

Pros:

Cons: Two power cords per speaker should be supplied. One short and one long.

Great sounding wireless speaker! Have two in stereo mode & have nice sounding separation. Easy to configure from my iPhone app. Have used setup to play music from my iPhone, Pandora & other streaming music. Have it set u thru "Alexa" so everything from choice, to volume up & down is easily obtained thru voice commands.

Pros: Sounds great, easy setup on iPhone, etc. using Sonos app

Cons: Wish there we more ways to hook up different devices, such as a TV, for another sound or music opportunity.

Guest from Raleigh, NC on 1/17/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I had purchased a Sonos 1 and so decided to try a 3. To my ears there is not much difference in the quality or depth of the sound between a Sonos 1 and Sonos 3. I am going to purchase a Sonos 5 now , mainly out of curiosity to compare to the others. One thing of interest to me is that my Echo device will connect to the 3 but not to the 1 . Go figure. For the money, knowing what I know now, I would purchase a Sonos 1 and not a Sonos 3 as there is hardly any difference between the two.

Very simple to set up with my existing home wireless network. I purchased the Boost to go along with it. The Boost is upstairs and connected to the wireless router, and the Play 3 is downstairs in the kitchen. We've experienced no delays and the sound quality is great. I will be purchasing additional Sonos speakers for the bedrooms and living room next. The player application is easy to use and the whole family has been enjoying making playlists.

Pros: Easy setup Good sound Simple player app

I have the sound bar and 3 play1's throughout the house. Added this Play3 in the office and I love the sound - just a bit fuller than the play1 - and a nice size. My only con of Sonos in general is that it isn't easy for other people to play their music unless they download the app. Would be nice to have "guest" access to share their music.

Sonos Play:3

Crutchfield customer from Glen Head, NY on 12/11/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Love the Sonos products. Had a pair I was using for left and right front speakers with the TV but with the addition of some Play:1's for rear surround and the Playbar, I was able to split these two up and put them in two different rooms to extend the music through most of the house. They sound great and had a good bass signature even for a relatively small speaker. I set one up in each of two rooms and it was as easy as placing them, plugging them in and changing their location in the app. Amazing versatile when you want to change location or configuration and as far as day to day use (we use them every day for TV and music) they just WORK. No issues, glitches or problems not for the years we've had them. For a larger room and real "primary" speaker-type listening you'd probably want two in the room - especially in a larger room - but as a way to just extend the music into other areas, or provide excellent sounding background music they're great.

Pros: Sound quality. Ease of setup. Versatility. Quality build. Reliable.

Cons: Not cheap.

Swati from Northampton, MA on 12/11/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought a pair of Sonos PLAY:3 speakers. They are clearly high quality speakers and almost everything I hoped for. It's awesome how versatile they are, being wireless and is a big step above the other wireless option, bluetooth speakers, sound wise. As a bonus, I have found that they have sounded better the more I use them. Perhaps a breaking in period? They are not everything I hoped for as I can only change the treble and bass as far as EQ. The rest of the 'EQing' is by the speakers tuning themselves to the room. I would way rather eq the sound myself than rely on Sonos as I have no way of adjusting the mid range frequencies etc. I prefer warmth over crisp high end and thumping bass which I realize is different than most people's preference these days in the age of digital music. Maybe one day Sonos will make an EQ app to go with their speakers. I would love that. All in all though, for what they are, multiroom speakers, I'm pretty f***ing happy.

recently purchased the PLAY 3 for the bathroom. We have PLAY 5's and a playbase (which are awesome). The sound and setup are good. The star deduction is because they have NOT updated the look. the play 5 and playbase are sleek modern looking. other than that a great speaker. with the addition of hooking up to alexa makes it even easier to play music with voice command. Further more- if you have a apple watch, you can control volume and songs from your watch.

Good value for an ambient music system

Alan from Coventry, CT on 10/15/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Got a pair of P3s set up in stereo to replace a small counter top CD/casette/radio unit in the kitchen that died after 20 years. The sound from these is superior and the space utilization minimal. TuneIn radio comes free with the Sonos app and is obviously superior to old school FM radio reception and allows worldwide station selection. I already had SiriusXM satellite radio in my car and was easily able to expand to online streaming for use with the Sonos at home. I am not tech savvy and I created and imported a CD library with minimal time and effort. Initial installation and set up was easy and problem free. One has limited ability to customize treble and bass, but for the size and price of these speakers the music quality and depth is more than acceptable.

Pros: Ease of use Value for cost Phenomenal potential for a wide range of music sources

Cons: Would not fulfill role of primary music system for a serious audiophile.

my big deal component stereo system sits in the basement and after plugging in the Sonos play 3, it is likely to stay there! Fantastic sound meets all my expectations and will be definitely buying more (additional speakers, sub woofer, the whole enchilada!). By the way, the salesman who got stuck with me on the phone was knowledgeable, friendly, answered all my questions, and even laughed at my bad jokes. Furthermore, my son, who I enlisted to help me hook it up (I'm not good with all this App stuff) , was totally impressed with technical support. All in all, a home run.

Crutchfield customer from Baraboo, WI on 8/28/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bass is very boomy, even at all volume levels. There are much better speakers out there for the money that sound better. Like the Audio engine A5+. Only thing that this has going for it is it's portability. If you are going to leave it on your nightstand or counter, keep looking. The app is nice but you can't stream anything other than music from it. Don't expect to play everything from your phone, like youtube or anyother apps other than the SONOS controller app. I will say that the Play 5 is much better sounding. If you can't afford at least the play 5 don't bother with SONOS. With that said you pay A LOT of money for the name. I would look at other book shelf speakers for the money. For the money you can buy some nice powered speakers from Audio Engine or Klipsch.

I gave it three stars as the clarity of sound on my unit falls below my expectations.

Pros: Size and ease of set-up and easily moved.

Cons: Perhaps it's the one I received but the clarity of sound is off, expected more.

Happy with Sonos P3

Michael from Redmond, WA on 3/31/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The P3 is my first Sonos speaker. I have the P3 in my home office and am enjoying the warm sound quality of this speaker. Set up was very easy. Initial set up was via my desktop PC and then expanded to my iPad and iPhone. I have over 6,500 songs on iTunes so it took a bit of time to import my library but that was the slowest part of the set up. Adding the iPad and iPhone was two touches on the screen and BOOM, I can control the P3 from all my devices. LOVE that it is not one device at time but all devices can operate the P3, select songs and control volume. Not like linking a device via Bluetooth and then only being able to control the speaker with that device only, they all work and are all live. I also like the SONOS interface and find that it is actually more responsive than iTunes. Easily imported my entire music library. Beyond the tech, the sound is very nice. Good bass, clear vocals and a nice warm sound on my favorite songs. Already thinking about more SONOS for the house. This may become an expensive habit, lol! I debated if I wanted 2-P1's or 1-P3 and I am very happy with the P3. Stereo separation would be nice but I am not complaining about the performance of the P3 at all. Took the speaking into our kitchen which is an open floor plan with our family room and the P3 is plenty speaker for that size of room and the moving of the P3 was as easy as plug it in, P3 finds the WiFi network and connects then I push play.

Pros: Sound quality, ease of use, wifi connectivity.

Cons: None so far

Sonos Play 3 Hit's Hard.

Kenny D. from San Jose, CA on 2/27/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Love this PLAY 3 Unit. I exchanged a PLAY 1 and got this instead. Much Better Sound. (Bigger Sound), and more of it. Again, Easy to set up, and Again, it had to load the Latest Software for a Few Minutes. No Big Deal, Just hangs ya up for a bit. I am working towards a Wireless House for Music and all, I do believe this will be my Product of Choice. I do like to keep things the same and will be using SONOS. Unless something else comes out and is "Easily" Compatible with the SONOS Product Line and sounds as good or Better. I have this on my Desk and it fits good in the corner, Not as Well as the PLAY 1, but it works for me. I'll be raising it up off the desk to get a little better sound. I have Lifted it up a Little while it's Playing and it is Better sounding off the desk a Bit and with a Slight Tilt Upward. Might Purchase the Stand for it from Crutchfield, (these Folks are Great)!! I am Streaming from Pandora without a Hitch so far from my iPhone. I have the APP on My MacBook Pro but I haven't Enabled it yet since my Phone is with me all the Time so I can't answer to the Mac's Ease of use here as of yet. That all said, this PLAY 3 Hits pretty Good in all areas. I have Tweaked the settings a Little, and Run the TRUEPLAY set up. Not sure in the Bedroom it it's worth it tho??? I can't really hear the Difference?? Anyway, I am Happy with the Trade Up From the Play 1. Make a NOTE here folks. The PLAY 1 does NOT Play in STEREO!! Play3 Does Only in Horizontal , Not Vertical . ??

Pros: Nice sound, Good to Great Bass, Nice Hi's. Easy set up and easy to use. Start Here! Then go BIGGER!?..

Cons: If there is a Con, It's the Fact that the Play 3 don't Play is STEREO when Vertical It sounds Ok but you can tell. It even sounds better Raised up off the Desk and tilted up a little, if your using it there. CON'S??? You Decide...

Love our Sonos speakers

Michael from Anaheim, CA on 2/15/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

We started buying Sonos Products in 2014 when we moved to a new home (new to us) and wanted to have music in every room without running speaker wire. My research brought me to the conclusion that although there are choices in wireless speakers, if you want the BEST you need to buy the Sonos products. In one of the articles I read the author stated, in his opinion, that you can buy one of the others and you will be happy. But if you have the money and want the best, buy the Sonos. He went on to say that Sonos has the best technology when it comes to wirelessly streaming music, by a large margin. We started out putting one Play3 in each of the rooms we wanted music, including in the garage by my workbench. We also bought a Play5 to use outside during parties (always bringing it back into the house at the end of the evening). Then we started buying more Play3's to create stereo pairs in each room. Adding speakers is simple and the sound quality is incredible. We have also bought a Boost and pair of Play3's for two of our sons. The only problem is Sonos does not make a speaker that can be left outside (weather proof), hopefully someday they will. We (and our sons) highly recommend buying the Sonos products, especially the Play3.

Pros: Easy to set up Easy to move around the house Great sound quality Plays music from any digital library you have or online music service Control everything from your smart phone, tablet or computer Play different songs in every room/on every speaker.

Cons: Price (but if you want the best you have to pay for it)

All is great with these small but powerful speakers. Crystal clear and you can really push the sound high if that is your desire. I use them in a small room but still love them. NOt sure how much better if at all they are vs the Play:1 for a small room, but I figured I would spend more if I ever moved them to a bigger room. No reason to save a few $$$'s given how expensive the Playbar and Sub were. At that point, I went all the way and for now are very satisfied. These speakers sound better(crisp and cleaner) than my large floor speakers from 20 years back which I spent almost the same $$$'s on way back in the past...

I've owned various SONOS components since they first came on the market in 2005. I've been always really impressed with the quality and ingenious design of their products. However, I always used 3rd party speakers connected to their Zone players and the PLAY:3 is the first speaker made by SONOS I purchased. I am not disappointed. The quality of the sound for such a small device is amazing. Also, the simplicity and speed of setup is unparalleled. I highly recommend this product for kitchen or bedroom.

Pros: Simple and fast setup, amazing sound in a small factor, great looks

Cons: I don't think there are any!

Ease of installation, quality of sound, diversity in set-up options. All these features are why this product is hands down the best on the market. I've been an audiophile for over 40 years and have owned separate units (Yamaha), CD players and of course embraced the digital era. I could not be more thrilled with a product. We currently have five rooms with some level of SONOS.

Pros: Ease of installation and set-up. Sound quality.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Looking to replace a small JBL bluetooth speaker in our kitchen (approximately 525 sqft.) and was leaning toward a Sonos 1 due to size and price. However, I decided to visit a big box and listen to a variety of speakers (Wifi & bluetooth) rather than just go on reviews. Glad I did because although the Sonos 1 sounded pretty good, there really was no comparison with the Sonos 3. Although bigger, the sound is remarkable. Great bass response and terrific highs, sounding better than many larger speakers. With a larger footprint, perhaps not something you'll want to have on your kitchen counter (although you could), this speaker will fill a good sized room with very good sound and is well worth the cost over the Sonos 1. We listen to Spotify and Pandora and the Sonos app is easy to use.

Pros: Overall sound, bass response. Will get uncomfortably loud if you want. Easy set up.

Cons: None thus far.

The sound is room filling with little distortion. It's very good, probably better than the Bose systems I have heard. What sets this part is the great interface you can download to your iPhone.

I am not a fan of wireless technology. In my experience, setup is a pain and signal quality has always been iffy with all of my components. That being said, I do appreciate the promise of wireless technology. The Sonos PLAY3 speaker has so changed my perspective. I have only had these two speakers less than a month, so I don't know how long it will last. For now, the setup was easy and worked without problems. I was even impressed when I added another speaker. The setup worked flawlessly. The wireless configuration is holding so far. The Speakers have excellent sound quality and separation with only minor clipping on high end vocals. Luckily I am not a fan of opera. I live in an apartment, so I have not been to hear how loud they can go. The only complaint I have is the lack of overall instructions and the controller software needs improvement. Overall, I think it is a good buy for its price range.

Pros: Good sound quality and separation with two speakers. Easy setup.

Cons: iPad controller software needs improvement. Not enough information in written instructions

I purchased this speaker after purchasing two Play 1s. I figured if the Play 1 sounded good, then the Play 3 should sound great. Honestly, I believe it does sound good, however, I will probably be purchasing another Play 1 as I continue to add more speakers to different rooms. The Play 3 has punchy bass but seems to fall a bit flat. I think the money spent is worth it, but again, in the future I will be more likely just to add more Play 1 speakers.

The Sonos play three is a great product and you can buy it almost anywhere. So after reading all the reviews and looking at feedback on this product, even going to a big box store to listen to it, I knew it was right wireless speaker system for our new home. So why did I choose Crutchfield? For me it's all about customer service, but then in reality it's price... especially on a commodity product where few discounts can be found. With free shipping and no sales tax the bottom line is it was the best total price. Thanks again for helping me select the right products and for providing outstanding pricing and services.

I set out to equip my main rooms with sound by getting 4 Sonos Play-1's and a Connect to tie in my Bose sound bar from the TV.

The addition of the Play-3's was just what was needed to increase the "fullness" of the sound. Now the main area, dining room, and study have room-filling sound and I'm delighted with the results. Great system. Easy to use. easy to add on to. Very reasonably priced. Tremendous "bang" for the buck. No regrets! P.S. The folks at Crutchfield were Terrific to work with .... didn't rush getting the order, willing to take the time to discuss the items in which I was interested, and knowledgeable. Thanks Crutchfield!

Sonos Play:3

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

After a visit to my daughters home & seeing & experiencing her newly installed SONOS music system I could not wait to get home & get one to enhance my own home. I have a large mulit level home. I started small using a SONOS amp to power 4 ceiling speakers which were installed in the great room & the master bedroom on the main level of the house, I also ordered a PLAY 3 to sit on the counter of the kitchen. We fell in love with this system immediately, the sound is amazing, so much so that in a short time we decided to further enhance our system by adding a SONOS whoofer, since then we have added a PLAY 5 for our large lower level & most recently have added another Play 3 for our smaller upper level. The sound quality in our home is absolutely amazing, I would highly recommend any of these SONOS products

Play 3 - Very nice!

Steve - Florida from Palm Coast, FL on 10/3/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Wonderful sound much much better than my two previous wireless speakers. Projects well and does not distort at 80% full volume. We looked at the Play 1 but decided to buy the Play 3. The Play 3's sound is more rich and full - not taking anything away from the Play 1, it sounded good too. As for the wireless connection quality - so far not one dropout and no detected signal degradation. I am slowly building my sound system and own the Play Bar. When I group the two speakers together you can hear the difference. The sound is more full and rich. Three more Play 3s and I'll be set. I have two other wireless speakers. They are poor to average in connectivity and sound quality. Not even in the same class as the Play 3. One was the same price as the Play 3 and it has been problematic from day one. Now it hardly works as the manufacture does not support the speaker - they want me to trash it and buy a newer one. Not going to happen. Another reason for the Sonos is the control features via the IOS and or Android. We are replacing the in-house intercom system with Sonos equipment. Believe it or not the Sonos is cheaper than the integrated home intercom systems and NO wiring. There's also no comparison in sound quality and ease of use. Now that I have tested two pieces of their gear I'll jump in and buy the rest of the equipment needed for the 5.1 sound system and full house audio. Play 3s for the media room and Play 1s for the in

Pros: Very easy to setup.

Cons:

What a great system. It took no time at all to setup and get our music incorporated into the Sonos App. I music library is located on our main desktop and we were able to connect the Sonos to our network hub using a network cable and then sync the Sonos to our desktop music library. Now, we have easy access to all our music and we can control the Sonos using our phone apps. Just a great system. Another plus was the ability to access the local radio stations that provide internet base connections. Over all, very happy with the purchase.

Pros: Easy setup, great sound and gives us access to a wide variety of music sources.

Cons: It would be great if there was a way to connect your phone directly to the unit. We went camping and it would have been great to have the Sonos, but we just went on more hikes.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought this speaker to add streaming music to my kitchen. Was a very very simple install, user interface amazing, and did the job very well. I was not as impressed with the sound quality, as after all the reviews I read I thought I would have been blown away. The sound is good, but it is not "blow away" quality. I was debating getting the Sonos Play1, but opted for a slightly better speaker, and glad I did, as if the Play3 is adequate for my application I believe the Play1 I would not have been happy with. Just my guess

Pros: Simple install - plug in, configure, play music

I listened to the PLAY:1, PLAY:3 and PLAY:5 and the local big box electronics store and was impressed by all of the SONOS products. I finally went on Crutchfield and ordered the PLAY:3 and I was super glad I did. Even though the PLAY:3 was set up in a pretty large room, the sound fills up the entire downstairs of my house. It sounded way better than it did at the store and the hook up and the controls are super easy. I am a bit of an audiophile (the PLAY:3 was not replacing my home component system) and I was throughly impressed.

Pros: Great sound quality. Easy to set up and easy to use.

Cons: None.

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.

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.

Pros: Slick software, great integration.

Superior Product

DavidB from Maryland on 6/2/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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.

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

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

Michael S from New York on 2/3/2015

Verified employee purchase (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

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

BrettA from the Washington, DC Area on 12/27/2014

Verified employee purchase (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.

Carl from Erie, Pa on 12/15/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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?)

Frustrating

Scott from South Carolina on 11/22/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

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

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

Cons: None

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

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

Sonos Play 3

Philo from Hudson, NY on 6/16/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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

Works well

JimH from Niantic CT on 5/21/2014

Verified employee purchase (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.

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.

Cons: They should sell them in multi packs!

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.

Great Little Speaker

Lee from Topeka, KS on 4/14/2014

Verified employee purchase (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

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.

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..........

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 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

JG from Seattle, WA on 2/12/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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.

Sonos PLAY3

JackStraw from PA on 1/21/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

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

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

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

Cons:
