another continuation review for my sonos 5.1 surround system. as mentioned I have the sonos playbar connected via Ethernet to my router, and the sonos sub connected wirelessly. again, my interest in the sonos system was the wireless connectivity, which is super convenient. I chose a pair of play3s, instead of the play1 (the 3s seemed to have more substance). I have not tried the play3 as a stand alone wireless music speaker, but I'm sure it could hold its own. I have the play3 as the left and right rear speakers for my living room surround sound system. the speakers require a/c power. fortunately, I have conveniently located outlets in my living room. I also happened to have a pair of c-shaped table/stands, which work perfectly for propping up the speakers. I have the play3s connected to the surround system wirelessly. as usual, easy setup with the sonos software via either computer or mobile device. as mentioned in my initial review (soundbar), you'll need a device that outputs in standard dolby 5.1 surround to take advantage of the system. if you connect the "hub" to your tv via toslink, the dolby surround will be lost, as most tvs don't output dolby via the toslink out. main con is the same as other sonos devices...really pricey equipment. I'm enjoying watching tv, blu ray movies, and video games in surround sound. can't end review without mentioning the great service from abt. no sales tax, no shipping/handling costs, and small discount from my rep. received my order within a few days of placing order. abt is awesome!

I bought one SONOS speaker to accompany my new SONOS CONNECT. This speaker is placed in my kitchen in the corner. I am a bit disappointed in the sound. The sound has strong bass, but muddy. It appears to be missing midrange. I will continue to work with its placement and optimize signal strength.
Although I like the SONOS concept and system, I would like for them to make available a variety of bluetooth speaker systems. Its all in the sound.

          Picked this up as a compliment to the Sonos Play I pair that my wife got me for Christmas. The Play 3 is a very nice product and fills a larger room with great, high quality sound. So much so, that I pulled my Onkyo compact stereo system out of the living room in favor of the Play 3. It's pretty amazing. I also installed the Sonos controller application on my desktop Mac and can now control my entire music library from my I-Phone via my I-Mac. Really, really happy with the entire Sonos line.
