Sonos PLAY:3 overview

  • 1Description

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
Tweeter
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

    Sonos PLAY:3 reviews

    PLAY:3 Wireless Speaker (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the kitchen Have two play:5s in the living room and wanted to extend the music into the kitchen. The play:3's combination of small size, simple setup, and relatively big sound have made it a great purchase.If you have a play:5 to compare it to, you'll definitely notice the play:3's somewhat lighter bass, and if this is your first speaker I'd suggest spending the extra hundred for the Play:5. But if you have just a small room, or are looking to expand into a bunch of rooms inexpensively, this is a great solution.Only thing I wish it had is a line-in plug (since it would then be the perfect portable ipod dock replacement).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Could be great, but its not. I watch a lot of movies and TV on my ipad through various apps, HBO now, crackle, and Netflix. I bought this speaker because it sounded great and Gave me the flexibility of positioning the speaker up high in my kitchen and playing it wireless. The problem is you cant stream audio from any of those sources. And if you use a cable, which defeats the purpose, it has a delay. I guess its good if you only want to listen to music, but this is only a small portion of what I need it for. I should have done a little browsing of the Sonos discussion boards before making this purchase, the lack of support is a deal breaker for me. Returning and searching for a better alternative.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speaker These are great speakers. I've had a SONOS 3 for 2-3 years and have loved it. Use it all of the time. So easy to use. I recently bought a second one and have added it to the same room. As great as the first one sounded by itself, having them paired provides an even better sound and gives me more flexibility as to how I might use them around the house. I put the second one on a Sanus stand (the first one sits on a counter or on something else when I move it around). With the stand I don't need to find something to rest the speaker on; all I need is a plug.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Setup, great performance This was easy to set up, connect to a NAS music collection, and get rolling. It's perfect for our office, making it very easy for everyone to participate in selecting/vetoing music through a range of devices. Sound quality is quite good but won't blow you away. I have not tried any larger networks of players but have been very happy with this version. It also has good sound volume, although in a large space you won't be knocking down any walls. Bass is lacking, but isn't bad for the package size. Also includes wireless, something that many reviews seemed to have missed, so we can use it happily without a bridge.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound Easy and Use I was leery of spending this much money on a speaker but now that I have two of them I see the value. The sound that comes out of these is incredible. If you are wondering about stereo sound this speak play both channels, one out of each mid range speaker. If you have a single speaker in the room the farther away from the speaker you are the more stereo effect you get. The other great part is the amount of sound that you get out of one of these. I am never able to turn them up much past halfway as they are incredibly loud. And with the dedicated woofer on the back they have great low frequency response I see my self purchasing at least one more of these and a few Play:1s for smaller rooms.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great way to listen to music I gave this item as a gift but also get to use it too. It is really easy to set up and link in musice from itunes and amazon cloud. The only down side is that google play is not compatible, but I have more music in amazon cloud so I don't miss it that much. I found the interface to be really intunitive, and I hardly ever say that about technology. It had good sound quality and the 3 can go really loud. I want one in every room.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wireless solution I am a Smart home designer and professional installer of audio / video / computer / control equipment. I Endorse both wired and wireless home / office audio systems. On the most part I prefer wired systems where possible but when wireless is the best solution, Sonos is the system of choice. Experience has shown me that my clients are not as interested in the technology that drives the system but more the quality of the sound and how easy it is to operate the remote control. Sonos does very well in all three areas. The sound is clear and provides three speaker sizes suitable for all room sizes. In very large rooms multiple speakers can be designated to the same room. A Sonos speaker can be setup as a single stereo or as a left or right speaker. This feature is great for clients that wish to at first build a home system on a budget then later add a second speaker to a room for true left/right stereo separation. Each speaker has the capability to relay the Sonos wireless network so when you set up a multi-room system, lay the speakers out accordingly to best extend the signal. The user interface is very easy to learn and use. Sonos is quick to push out upgrades to stay up-to-date on newer content providers like Pandora and Spotify. They are always adding new providers when they become available. Installation is relatively simple and they have many sources of assistance available. I highly recommend the companion piece of adding a NAS drive to contain your music library. They come in 1, 2 or 4 drive units. A single drive is enough if you already have a means to make regular backups, if not, then I can not recommend strongly enough that you select the 2 drive version. These drive get a lot of use so having a mirror copy or a backup of your music library is a must. It is recommended that this type of external drive be used to minimize the use and abuse of the internal drive in your computer. One other nice undocumented feature / use of Sonos is that there are very easy to move around so for parties or when you need to have music outdoors, you can always just take the speaker out of a bedroom and place it on the terrace, backyard, or near the pool. Sonos is a good quality, easy to install and use, flexible audio system. May not be the cheapest but you can't have everything.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't stop buying these I use these in almost every room in the house. It's so nice having great (seriously good quality) sound throughout the house. The Sonos App is so easy for control, and if you own a PlayBar, you can setup surround sound in minutes.
