Sonos PLAY:3 Smart Wireless Speaker – speakers take some beating.

As with all sonos products the perform 3 is fantastic. Superb make quality, brilliant audio, actually loud.

I can only implement other users comments. The speaker is smaller, medium fat and aesthetically satisfying. Established up is straight ahead and the sound is awesome. Purchased to increase my participate in 5’s and it pairs beautifully.

I appreciate the sonos method – it was easy to established up originally, had a handful of problems with accessing new music from a laptop and then from a nas but the sonos helpline is fantastic and the complications ended up shortly solved. Now i have encompass audio for the television set and songs on tap from the nas (operated by a smartphone). This individual speaker was purchased to incorporate to an current set up (together with playbar, sonos 1 speakers and sonos sub) and it was uncomplicated to insert in and enhance the high quality of playback.

  • A lot of speaker in a small form factor.
  • Worth the money.
  • Great Buy. Looks good, sounds better!!

This is almost certainly likely to be a bit of biased critique as i have acquired 4 (2x enjoy 5 + 2x enjoy three) round the house. You ‘need’ the box that plugs into your router, in any other case you will only be ready to perform it next to the router. Audio good quality is good and can get loud, with no receiving severe, connectivltiy is wonderful significantly into spotify, napster even though you can have to have the £9. ninety nine monthly accounts to use these. You can pair two of them to get stereo if you want and have the similar audio (or different music) streaming during the home. A short while ago located that you can backlink by way of android to use the network developed by sonos, mixed expertise with this, although my google nexus is tempermental at the finest of situations.

I acquired 2 of these to switch and up grade the 2 sonos 1’s i experienced been employing as the surround sound for my cinema process. I believed the enjoy 1’s did an fantastic position, these in it can be spot are amazing, i cannot notify you how significantly these are worth each individual penny.

Elegant and very fantastic, acoustically wonderful from a little unit, synced with ‘spotify’ and every little thing you want for an evenings audio.

Remarkable crystal apparent sound high quality. I have tunes stream most of my waking hours and the cross fading bash environment is good (there’s no pause in between tracks). I very advocate sonos and i will be incorporating more speakers for upstairs.

Just what i desired – already experienced perform 5 (gen two) , a pair of enjoy 1s and a hook up:amp so was presently bought into the process. Works effectively in the kitchen in coordination with the play 5 in the lounge – seamless audio/radio throughout the two rooms.

Immediately after researching a whole lot about the almost certainly wireless techniques to acquire, i settled on sonos. The relieve of use is the main stage. Coupled with excellent seem this will make it a perfect invest in. If you have the bridge set up, then all that the sonos requirements is electric power and it will participate in any new music from your ios or android cell phone or tab, anywhere you want it inside the home. Set up multiple speakers and you can enjoy one songs in one particular room and one more tunes in other or the identical audio by all rooms. The app and setup is rather literally plug and play. Will take significantly less than a moment to download and setup (it is basically accomplished with the force of a button). It can’t get extra very simple than this. Your numerous controllers can manage the songs queue really proficiently. We tested this all through the new decades party at our put.

When it arrived i couldn’t wait to attempt it. So i received it out of the box, plugged it in and established the buttons and bingo it was actively playing. I really like the audio and it has sufficient quantity to deafen any person if required. It is a terrific extension to my system and now i can perform music in a person space and enjoy radio in the other. Only draw back is that now i have to have a different for the bed room.

It is so much much better not needing music in tough copy, but then we have spotify on our cell packages. At the time or twice when it has dropped off line and no for a longer time recognised our sonos technique, the sono assist-desk have been superior.

Only enable down by its program, which is unattractive and tough to navigate.

I investigated speakers for ages till i at some point bought this, and pretty delighted i did. Good seem and the sonos app is straight forward.

Can only say fabulous product.

Fantastic seem extremely pleased with them (two) desired the subwoofer to give that excess dimension.

Amazing piece of machines – pair them up for exceptional encompass sound stereo. The established up is actually satisfying, it is that superior. I use amazon primary for streaming – big preference of not everything but so a lot tunes. The very best facet of technology which can be frustrating typically but not with the wonderful sonos procedure.

I have just purchased this for my daughters christmas, analyzed it out hooked up to my current sonos play:five. Seem is fantastic, amazed by how uncomplicated it was it include to my current set up and the android app is easy and straightforward to use. If you have a lot more than a person of these, pair them for correct stereo or put in different rooms to appreciate different playlists in distinct rooms. You can also team various speakers to engage in the same music or radio station at the very same timea small more high-priced than other selections, however, properly truly worth the excess kilos.

Hello all will not continue to keep pondering about purchasing the sonos 3 just do it. Its fantastic and nicely value the funds, i have a few sonos 5 in my network as properly as the new sonos 3. I bought the sonos 3 for two major reasons1)i believed a more compact device would be much better for the kitchen2) the rate £100 cheaperif i am becoming genuine the 5 may perhaps have a very little additional base and much better variety at higher freq (notes) than the three,but other than that the seem is amazing and eqaully as fantastic as the extra pricey sonos 5.

Ok, i am a self confessed sonos addict. I have them in most rooms, this one particular is for my (cough) workshop. Set them up so they are all actively playing the exact issue and you can walk around your dwelling listening to your songs. Want to enjoy distinct music in unique rooms?. Great seem excellent, additional than loud plenty of. If you can operate to it a pair for stereo will make a substantial big difference. The enjoy one’s sound great for their dimensions, the threes have a bit a lot more quantity and better base stop and the fives have huge base and audio pretty refined and potent.

I gained my sonos play 3 and bridge this 7 days and am now unquestionably blown absent by it. I replaced my previous b&w zeppelin mini (excellent sound, but a headache to keep your mobile phone docked in, plus a awful distant) so took the plunge and went for sonos and am now in enjoy with ittook about 3 minutes to established up and get the application jogging with it, and now i are unable to feel i ever applied anything at all else for my songs. The app is genuinely very simple to use, no matter if on ipad or apple iphone, despite the fact that the greater display screen of the ipad does it extra justice. From there i can pick out any of the audio that is in my itunes, on my spotify or decide up any radio station from all around the world with the tunein radio application – perfecti have viewed a number of assessments criticising the application or the wireless relationship, but i have had no these types of problems. I now are not able to wait around to transfer to a larger spot so that i can get much more sonos equipment connected up.

Just additional this enjoy three to my process and i like it. It is incredibly straightforward to join and has wonderful foundation.

I cherished my perform:one speakers and was sceptical about the distinction an enhance would truly make, but today i positioned two pairs of 1s and 3s next to just about every other and perform a observe, alternating among the two. The big difference is quickly noticeable: the play:3 speakers supply much more bass and treble and raise the bar. As significantly as i cherished my aged speakers, upgrading normally takes it to a complete new degree.

I use these as a the rears for my surround audio established up and they supply a truly punchy audio to the films that use it. The setup was simple: use the sonos app to configure the speakers, push the buttons on the speakers to hook up, use the app to decide the position of the speaker (i. Rear speaker or principal speaker) and in what place and that was it.

    The base on this is so impressive. The volume is perfect for a large kitchen. I am definitely going to pair with the one. After listening to the one in john lewis i must admit i was very impressed with both. This one probably just has alittle more power and volume for a larger room. Great looking and very easy to pair with the app.

      1. Great product with fantastic sound. Could maybe do with an upgrade to the style so it looks more sleek round the edges like the play 5 but you buy for the sound not the look.

    The sonos systems do exactly what they say on the tin. Easy to use, really rock solid app on the phone os (windows 10 version, appears more buggy). Would strongly recommend that if you are deploying these, then make sure that at the least one of the devices is hard wired into your network. Personally, i now have several of these and since had wiring the sonos connect in, which was flaky, the rest of the sonos devices work far better. My wifi signal is strong all over the house, but this is achieved via extenders and it seems that this causes sonos some issues, especially the connect. Now the connect is rock solid and the other devices are all far less likely to have issues, indeed, most problems are solved at the phone and not by the need to power down the sonos device itself.

      1. I loved my play:1 speakers and was sceptical about the difference an upgrade would really make, but today i placed two pairs of 1s and 3s next to each other and play a track, alternating between the two. The difference is immediately obvious: the play:3 speakers offer more bass and treble and raise the bar. As much as i loved my old speakers, upgrading takes it to a whole new level.

    What the amazing play:1 is like just with more bassy oomph. However, given the choice i would choose the play:1 over this as there is actually very little difference. And my god, get 2 play ones for an extra £50 is very worth it. The only thing i would justify is the play:5 over the play:1.

    Excellent sound reproduction and easy to use. Continually improving the app, which is good. Could be cheaper but then i guess you get what you pay for.

    I had extremely high expectations of this speaker – i’d say they were almost met but not quite to the standard i’d hoped. Still glad i made the purchase though. Still one of the best speakers that works with alexa seamlessly.

    1. I have set x2 of these up in my kitchen and they sound fantastic. Good deep bass which is adjustable with a full high quality range of sound across all genres. Sounds as good and my q acoustic lounge set up – maybe not quite as powerful however how loud do you want to go. ? the sonos app is user friendly and can link all your music services. These speakers are expensive however you get what you pay for and these will hopefully last for years.

    I’m giving this 3 stars for the depth of sound i’d expect from a £250 speaker. The functionality, which is what you’re paying for with sonos is excellent and i find the app and setup extremely easy. The problem was simply that at full volume, this single speaker was not punchy enough to fill my kitchen / living area which only measures 6m x 5m. In a room of this size you must require the play 5. I bought my son a play 1 for christmas and to be honest, i dont see any difference in the sound quality and as another reviewer suggested, you’d be far better off buying a stereo pair of play 1 speakers for around the same price. I’m a sonos fan, but the play 3 just seems pointless. If you want big sound, buy the play 5. Otherwise the play 1 is the best option and is almost £100 cheaper then the 3.

      1. Pretty underwhelmed, but have gone from monitor audio br2’s and a yamaha receiver to this. Should have been expected really. Friend has a bose soundtouch 30 and it sounds alot better, although is more expensive. Ease of use though i cant complain so kept it. Plus wasnt aloud the bookshelves and receiver anymore, too 90’s apparently.

    There is nothing wrong with the play 3 except for its current price of £250. For £300 you can get a stereo pair of play 1’s – and that sound will be massively better. Play 1’s are superb, play 5 is simply awesome if you can afford them, but having got a play 3 i am really not sure why they exist. (please don’t read 3 stars as a criticism of sonos, i’ll be buying more, just not play 3’s).
