SONOS PLAY:3 Wireless HiFi System - Black is rated 4.4697 out of 5 by 4,367.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from what i have been missing i wanted my music to be heard throughout my apartment. i didn't realize how seamless it would be to listen to all of my music that i listen stored in various locations. that is the biggest plus for me...i can create playlists or just add music to the queue from every source. the sound is great for me, but i've also been listening to music through computer and ipad speakers for 3 years now. the set up was the easiest i've seen in tech products in a while...both apps on the mac and ipad are extremely easy to use. granted this is only day one of use, but i don't have any complaints about my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for rock/pop and small ensembles I use the Sonos3 as our main music player in the home. We mostly listen to pop and rock music and solo instruments (classical). - The Sonos is not unfortunately not suited for playing symphonic music or classical music with more than a few instruments. - The sound becomes muffled, and distinct instrument sounds are lost making it a noisy experience that does no justice to the work being played.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Play:3 I have been using my Sonos speaker for all my home music purposes since I got it. My family likes it so much we're planning on buying a Sonos Play 1 for the other room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound and usability Just bought ourselves Play:3 as a Christmas present. Toyed with SONOS and "A N OTHER" system. Went with SONOS and are very pleased with it and everything it does. Connected within 10 mins and all other devices connected in less than 1 min following instructions on the App. Looking forward to adding PLAY:1(s), PLAY:Soundbar and PLAY:Sub in the near future for the perfect listening experience. All of us can add and edit music at the same time without having to disconnect and reconnect another device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stop reading, start buying Sits in the kitchen on a floating shelf. Fills the kitchen with sound and reaches other rooms with ease. Will be adding a few Play:1 units to finish off setup in the very near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This speaker is incredible This SONOS speaker, as well as the Playbar and Play:1, are amazing. The sound is crystal clear, the app to control them is extremely easy to setup and very intuitive. I started with the Playbar, and because it was so amazing, got two Play:1 speakers, and now I finally got two Play:3 speakers. The Play:3 speakers are better than the Play:1 speakers because they have subs in them and are capable of more sound, but both are great.

Product Description

  • The most versatile wireless speaker for rich, room-filling sound.

    The versatile all-in-one player that packs big sound into a compact size. With three speakers powered by three dedicated digital amps, PLAY:3 will fill your room with wall-to-wall sound.

Experience your favorite music from the only wireless music system that combines warm, full-bodied sound with a powerful wireless network 100 percent devoted to streaming HiFi sound without dropouts.
