Sonos Play 1 - Wireless Speaker
You want great sound, but you also don’t want to be eating ramen noodles for a month to pay big bucks for a high-end speaker, so what do you do? Well, we’ve got your answer, and it’s the Play:1 wireless speaker from Sonos. This speaker packs a powerful sound in a small package. Expert Reviews call it “the best budget multi-room speaker.”
What exactly makes the Play:1 so great? A lot of things, actually, from its technical specs to the mind-blowing number of ways it can connect and be used. We’ll cover all the details for you, so you can see exactly why this speaker is a great choice for any music lover.
Allow us to get technical for a second, so we can explain exactly why this little speaker sounds so great. The Play:1 uses two state-of-the-art digital class-D amplifiers individually coupled with two speaker drivers, so you get amazing sound in any sized room. One tweeter creates a crisp and accurate high-frequency response, and a dedicated mid-woofer delivers a faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies and a deep, rich bass. All filter setting, active equalization, and time-alignment are performed digitally through modern DSP circuitry for an all-digital sound architecture, giving you amazing quality sound. And Sonos’ Trueplay technology measures the acoustics in any room – analyzing things like size, layout, and even furnishings, and fine-tunes your Play:1 to make sure the sound is fantastic, no matter where you place the speaker.
Basically, all this jargon means one thing: this speaker has been engineered to make great sound.
Once you get your hands on this amazing speaker, you’re going to need some awesome music to pump through it! Sonos has got you covered, with over 100,000 free, pre-loaded radio stations, shows, and podcasts. Yup – free. Tune in without even needing to turn on your computer. It also works seamlessly with (get ready for a huge list here): Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, Radio by TuneIn, SiriusXM, Google Play Music, SoundCloud, Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, Rhapsody, Rdio, Qobuz, TIDAL and downloads from any service offering DRM-free tracks. So no matter where you get your music, the Play:1 can keep up. And if you’ve already got a huge music library on your computer, you can play them easily too, because the Play:1 supports all the most popular audio formats. And of course it plays nice with your smartphone or tablet too – Sonos wirelessly plays your iTunes music direct from your device to any room in your house. All this means that you have access to millions of songs. You’ll literally never run out of things to listen to. (Even if you’re picky).
The Play:1 weighs only 4 lbs (1.85 kg), and measures a nice little 6.36 x 4.69 x 4.69 inches (161.45 X 119.7 x 119.7 mm). The rounded design doesn’t skimp on aesthetics, and you can choose black or white to compliment your space. You have quick access to your music even if you don’t have a controller in your hand, with simple buttons on the speaker for quick volume and track control. It’s even designed to withstand high humidity, so feel free to rock out in the shower!
We’re guessing you already have enough remotes in your life, so no need to add another just for your speaker. Sonos has a free controller app for Android, IOS, PC, and Mac so you can control your speaker from the palm of your hand anywhere in your house, even if you have more than one Sonos speaker. Use the free app to search for songs and stations and even adjust the volume.
Have a lot of music lovers in your family, but can’t agree on what to listen to? Give everyone their own speaker and play a different song in every room, at the same time. Or turn it into a party by playing the same song in different rooms simultaneously, without annoying echoes or delays. You can even put two speakers in the same room and pair them together for true stereo sound. And the Play:1 is wireless, so it’s easy to move the party to the backyard, deck, or any corner of your house. Don’t stop the music, baby!
With all this technology, you’d think it would take a genius to get this all set up, but fear not – setup is easy peasy. The Sonos System Setup software gives you simple on-screen prompts, so a few little taps and you’ll be playing music all over the house in minutes. And since it’s wireless, you won’t have to get tangled up in wires to enjoy great sound either.

Connectivity and Setup:
Having setup many Sonos devices here at our store in Brisbane, I can comfortably say that it’s an easy and extremely quick and pain-free process. Setup takes less than 5 minutes via the smartphone/tablet app and a simple ethernet cable and modem/router. If you need additional assistance, we will happily walk you through, step by step over the phone or in-store. Our product support can save you money because you won’t need to pay someone to come out and set it up for you.
Once connected, it stays that way, unlike some other wireless speakers and digital streamers. There’s nothing more annoying than having to wait for an app to search for devices every time you want to listen to music. Thankfully, you will never have this issue with Sonos, as they have produced a great, user-friendly app that makes setting up and using Sonos products enjoyable!
The Sonos app allows music lovers to find quickly the Song, Album or Artist they wish to play, but it also allows music lovers to discover new music easily, which can be difficult with other devices. If you’re like me, waiting for an unreliable, slow app or website is incredibly frustrating. Sonos have invested a lot of effort into the user experience, creating a truly seamless and delightful experience.
The price point of the Sonos Play 1 is hard to believe! A product of this quality, immersive sound and with its set of modern features, available for this price and in Australia, is unbelievable. We receive constant feedback that we pass on to the Brand and it’s distributors. The Sonos line has incredible feedback from our customers, who keep coming back to add more devices to their Sonos system(s).
