Questions? Ask our experts:

The black Sonos PLAY:3 Wireless Speaker delivers digital music with hi-fi sound. It works by connecting to an Internet source via Ethernet cable or built-in Wi-Fi. Once connected, you can play your music from your music library or stream music from Internet radio stations, as well as Internet music services.

The PLAY:3 features a three-driver speaker system with three dedicated amplifiers - one for each driver. There's one tweeter, two mid-range drivers, and one bass radiator. If one room or one speaker isn't enough, you can expand wirelessly by adding Sonos speakers all over your home. You can enjoy multi-room simultaneous streaming of the same song, or a different music source from each player. For added flexibility, you can control your PLAY:3 remotely via Android device, iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.

Crystal-Clear, Room-Filling Sound

Three Speakers Powered by Three Dedicated Digital Amplifiers
The PLAY:3 uses three digital amplifiers individually coupled with three speakers to deliver sound to any room. The wireless music system provides pure, clean sound that is suitable for bringing room-filling music to a kitchen, bedroom, office, or just about any other room in your home. A bass radiator produces powerful low notes while two mid-range drivers and one tweeter fill out the sound
Class-D Amplifiers
The three lightweight and powerful amplifiers are also energy efficient in both standby mode and during regular use
A single tweeter creates a crisp and accurate high-frequency response
Mid-Range Drivers
Dual dedicated mid-range drivers ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments
Bass Radiator
A bass radiator is tuned to use the energized air volume inside of PLAY:3 to provide deep, clean, and powerful bass from a small package
All-Digital Sound Architecture
The PLAY:3 reproduces the music as the artist intended. All filter settings, active equalization, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through DSP circuitry, so there's no loss of audio quality or energy
Adjustable Bass & Treble Controls
Optimize sound performance using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms
