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.

      Comments about Sonos PLAY 3 Black Wireless Speaker System:

      We have a large 2 story home and have been thrilled with sonos. In fact, I purchased 2 units and within a week purchased 3 more. We use Sonos in multiple rooms in our home with full sound which is shocking considering 1)the size of our home, 2)the size of the speakers, 3) all our speakers are currently in mono. My wife has no trouble navigating the app and it is fantastic to use different speakers, in different rooms, for different music at the same time!

          The system is great and has great sound however the app shows quit often some glitches. I run it of my Iphone/Ipad and I need to restart it at least once a week. This is such a important part of the system that I'm a little disappointment. I hope they will fix this soon.

              Comments about Sonos PLAY 3 Black Wireless Speaker System:

              It has full sound and we are pleased with this. It has replaced our Shoqbox as our bluetooth music source (at least indoors) and we will get a second one to link together for stereo sound. Two difficulties however. One, we have not been successful with linking it to ipad to use our existing music. Two, you cannot have more than one account (in our case Pandora) linked to it. If my wife wants to listen to her music then we have to "override" and make hers the linked source, not mine. It is inconvenient to have to do this every time. The quirky set up refers to difficulty linking it to the bridge, it took a few tries, perhaps related to holding the 2 buttons simultaneously on the speaker to get it to synch.

                Our first Sonos products purchased were the Bridge and Play 3. Absolutely easy to set-up, as is the Controller. Sound quality is outstanding although the bass lacks somewhat with just the Play 3. Will be trying the Play 1 for outdoors and also the Sub to bump up the base. Overall tremendous quality and great, prompt customer service!
