With three integrated speakers and three digital amps, PLAY:3 streams all the music on earth wirelessly in any room for wall-to-wall sound. Go vertical or horizontal. Control with free apps for your Android™ smartphone, iPhone® or iPad®.

Features:

  • Crystal-clear, room-filling sound

I replaced a full stereo system with one Play3. I have put all my tapes and CD's on to computer and they are now all available. I then bought a NAS and they are all available all the time. Now I am streaming music from Spotify and re-discovering music I thought I would not hear again. I will add another Play3 to make a matched pair and then spread to other rooms.
Thanks for making it easy and encouraging me to set up a decent home network. An added advantage is that all my pictures are now networked as well.

I bought the Sonos Play 3 after reading the many great reviews. The build quality looks and feels great, the problem is the software. I have a laptop I use for my work, I have an ipad and iphone, I purchased 90% my music on my phone and ipad, I don't have it on my laptop. I loaded the sonos apps but couldn't play any of the music on my iphone or ipad??? After researching online I read you can't play the music from your iphone, ipad or ipod. The app is a remote control to play the music that lives on your laptop/PC or a NAS box. To get the music on the NAS you still have to have all the music on your laptop/PC and then sync to your NAS by running up itunes. Buy a new song on your phone and you can't play it until you open laptop and download again on itunes. This isn't as easy as airplay, sorry but this isn't for me and I so wanted it to be.

      I use my one Play 3 in my living room and outside. For me, it's great...full sound and enough power for both settings. I enjoy music but would not say I have a great ear, but I'm very happy with the sound and ease of use. I intend to purchase at least one more.

        After reading many of the reviews on Sonos and other non-Sonos, I decided it was a safe bet that we would love a Sonos in our house... and just as expected it is a perfect fit. On Christmas morning, we she opened the box... I turned on the music with my phone... it was so fun!

        I purchased four PLAY:3 units for use in our 30'x40' tradeshow booth. They performed well even in a noisy exposition hall and made our booth exciting and entertaining. They are easy to setup and sound awesome for their smaller size. If they were $50 less, I'd buy several for my house.

          I bought this so I can bring music outdoors n my terrace. I live the sound and look. I just wish that it didn't lose its group setup when I disconnect power to move it. I always have to regroup the speaker to the main one. Also wish it was outdoor rated so I did not have to bring in and out. Other than that it is a flexible easy system

                I enjoy my system, it sounds great out by the pool. People love to check it out. I realize now how much I use Spotify's app and their radio service. I know this is a big deal for Sonos right now, but I have to say it's my biggest disappointment. I want to be able to use Spotify radio, and I know Sonos' reply is tell Spotify to add it to the API, but with the Spotify "devices" feature, I think they need to move that way as well. But, past that everything else is great. I plan to get another 3 and a 5 as well.
