Sonos Play:3


$299.00 Released July, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:The most affordable Sonos to date. Sleek, minimalist aesthetic. Compact - great for smaller, secondary rooms.

The Cons:Not designed to be portable - A/C power only, pretty hefty at 5.7 pounds. Mono speaker design - doesn't allow for stereo separation most music is streamed in. Lacks the Ethernet bridge capabilities of the other Sonos.

The Sonos Play:3 are HiFi multimedia speakers that stream music wirelessly through Smartphones and iPhones/iPads.  The speakers include three drivers, one tweeter and two mid-range and three Class-D digital amps in one compact chassis.

Product Shot 2  The large model, the Play:5 includes a subwoofer, which the Play:3 does not but it does feature a passive bass radiator, which adds depth to the music.  The basic system requires the streamer ($299)  and a bridge ($49).  Once the basic system is in place, additional Play:3s can be added or combined as a stereo for better separation of left and right channels.  The Sonos Play:3 includes a built-in accelerometer that automatically switches from standard to mono.  The accelerometer also has the ability to teak EQ settings when the speaker is turned on its side.  The Sonos Play:3 delivers loud and clear sound is well suited as a bookshelf speaker system for a high quality audio experience.
