I have been looking for a system for my famiyroom that is compact and has quality music. I had the old style system, you know, big speakers, wires everywhere, etc. Time to get with 2013. Read a bunch of reviews on play bars, speakers, sub's and this came out on top. It fits perfect in the small spot I have for it and sounds great. Not overpowering but complimentary to the music. Being tech challenged one phone call to Sonos and I was set up in a few minutes. They were patient and so helpful. And actually spoke plain english so I didn't have to keep asking them to repeat themselves. Apple and Sonos are top on my list for support!! The tech showed me how to balance it with the room and bingo....great quality music. I am adding a picture and the sub is right by the fireplace so you may not see it which was my hope. My room is compact overlooking my kitchen and I needed music to fill the room but didn't want the components overwhelming. Fit the bill perfect!!!

I love the concept, ease of install and simple multi-room control of the whole Sonos setup. The Spotify interface is much less easy to use quite annoying when compared to the classical spotify app, (starting radio, automatically playing songs next in list without importing the whole playlist to your sonos current playlist) I am forced to bypass playing music via the sonos app and play songs via airplay off my tv on the sonos network. Voice clarity while watching movies, while improved with the sonos feature still seems a bit poor. The bass seems weak, and when raising the bass in a typical setup vibrations occur being forced to lower the bass output. I also seem to find the sonos 5 too small for a bigger room, and the sonos 1 very flat in sound even considering its size, it could be a bit more impressive compared to other small speakers that really pack a punch. I miss the real 5.1 ability which is mostly not available on most older tvs we have as well as potentially an even smaller less bulky 5.1 back speakers which could run only on batteries for those who dont want cables connecting the back speakers on a 5.1 setup.
I also see mentions of battery life, however, I havent seen anywhere clearly stated if any of the speakers have a rechargable internal battery? Overall however I love the ease of setup and iphone control. I love streaming multiple rooms with its own music.

        I got four of these bad-boys in my house, and am looking to buy a fifth. The sound output is great. Some may argue this product is expensive, well....maybe so; however, I don't care because it pumps out the bass as advertised.

            Got the sound bar and thought that would be enough. While very good on it's own, adding the sub made a noticeable difference. Definitely worth adding the sub.

              I have a wonderful timber frame home with hardwood floors, vaulted tongue and groove ceilings and a huge open space that includes a great room, kitchen, dinning room and loft. Beautiful acoustics for my Play 5, but the hard surfaces challenge any system for bass response. The SONOS sub just transforms the sound and fills the space with clean, vibrant music. In the lower level rec room I have wall to wall carpet with normal ceiling heights, and a Play 3 sounds great on its own. Together they make a really nice system.

              • Smaller Rooms

              I have a playbar, sub, and 2 play 3's all set up in 1 room for a home theater system. I love how easy it is to setup the system and if I want to move anything around just unplug/replug and your done! The worst thing i've found so far is the price vs other wired systems. To spend the same $ on a wired system would without a doubt blow this sonos out of the water...but the versatility of sonos is what makes it great. Being able to expand rooms or just add to the existing is something that most other systems cannot do. The bass from the sub is ok at best, I honestly thought i was getting more for my $ but i've also heard worse so it's in the middle. The playbar is definitely where its at! That thing has some of the most clear sound i've heard come from a bar. The play 3's add that surround sound which completes the home theater. The sonos app could be a lot more user friendly! I'm very tech savy and it took me awhile to figure out where sonos hid all the settings...which is just simply stupid. Have an EQ for the entire thing right on the home page or at least have it accesible right there and not make me dig 5-6 pages deep just to turn up my bass on my sub, THEN go back and enter another page to turn up the bass on my playbar...your app designers need to be fired! this system has some major potential but honestly for right now i think if i were to do it again i would invest in a 7.1 system for the same $ and be much happier with the results, other than the setup time.

                Set this up in the living room with a play bar and have a play 5 in my bedroom that I group it to sometimes. Short and sweet. For the size of the unit and simplicity in set up, the bass is hard to beat. I've seen larger, more powerful, more intricate sub set ups that don't come close to this (on car audio). Bite the bullet and spend the $$. You won't regret it.

                      I tried not to be impressed by SONOS,
                      the more familiar i become the more impressed i become.
                      It's the Speaker placement, grouping and configurations that give me on the fly instant room listening dynamic quality effects.
