I bought a home with Sonos sound bar. I have added a play 5, a sub, and two play 3's. Unbelievable sound quality! This is addictive! I have been taking my Play 5 out of the kitchen to my patio in the evenings. I now have that permanently in my kitchen a paly 3 upstairs, a play 3 in my Master Bedroom and have ordered a play 3 for outside patio. I have owned Bose and Harmin Kardin systems. Both are good quality Sonos is better!

I wanted to love this product but it just didn't live up to expectations. It certainly wasn't the plug in and play experience that Sonos had advertised and it took me over a week of back and forth with tech support to get the thing working. The problems I had were around file sharing with Lion OS, this left my play3 able to stream radio but not play my music library. As I understand it, Sonos have had a lot of compatability issues with Lion and I am not convinced that they have been able to rectify these completley.
Other than that I would say that the sound quality was good across the hz range for the price. My only other gripe would be that there are too many steps through the sonos controller software to play a track.

Comments about Sonos PLAY:3 Black Wireless Speaker System:

I bought this product quite deliberately because my husband is not too keen on innovation and is lagging behind when it comes to new audio systems. Because the system was so easy to use he has become fond of it himself as well (as are our five kids in the house). Thank you Sonos!
