Sonos PLAY:1 Tone wireless speaker review

4.0
Verdict: The Sonos PLAY:1 Tone is equally as good as the regular PLAY:1, but with a £51 markup over the original for just a change of colour, you have to really like the all-white or all-black designs to splash the cash on one.
Pros:

Review Sonos Play: 1

No reviews
Verdict: In the retail unit costs about 16,000 rubles, in my opinion, is insignificant price for the column with such capabilities. It can be used as a standalone device, you can use two and a TV or computer, you can put in a small room in the house.

Sonos Play:1

4.0
Verdict: In a time where Wi-Fi-based and AirPlay speakers still generally command a pretty penny, Sonos offers the Play:1 for a reasonable $199. It's the same price as the Editors' Choice Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker, but while the Bose is battery-powered, portable, and is purely a single speaker,...
Pros: Incredibly easy to set up. Affordable. Smooth-sounding midrange and high end
Cons: Bass distorts at maximum volume. Not portable. No wired audio inputs

Sonos Play:1 review

4.0
Verdict: As a standalone unit, the Sonos Play:1 is the cheapest way to get yourself Sonos-ed up and will undoubtedly be an attractive Christmas treat. It looks good, sounds good (although better as a pair) and will doubtlessly impress anyone that hasn't experienced the power of the Sonos/Spotify tie up.
Pros: Can use as PlayBar surrounds, Great design, Affordable
Cons: It's a mono speaker, A pair sounds better than one

Sonos Play 1

No reviews
Verdict: Most likely, yes. Honestly, I think the system really isn't totally complete on its own in a living room without a stereo pair, which brings up the regular price of a new system to $450, which is quite pricey.

Sonos Play:1 wireless speaker

4.0
Verdict: Sonos is the gold standard when it comes to multi-room audio and it's a lot more flexible than simply hooking up speakers to a few Airport Expresses spread around your home. Sonos speakers create their own wireless mesh network, so you only need to connect one speaker (or a Sonos bridge) to your...
Pros: Great size and price
Cons: Light on bass

3.5
Verdict: In Frank Oz's criminally underrated comedy What About Bob? , Bob Wiley (Bill Murray) reminds us: There are two types of people in this world: those who like Neil Diamond and those who don't. My ex-wife loves him.
Pros: Tiny footprint, big sound, Easy to pair with a second PLAY:1 for stereo sound, Sonos Controller mobile app keeps getting better
Cons: Looks weatherproof, but it isn't, Wish list: rechargeable battery for easier outdoor use, Black and white are a good start. More colors please

Verdict: Last month launched in the U.S., Sonos' latest wireless speaker - the Sonos Play:1 - is also available in Europe since this month. I don't think that the Sonos system needs any further introduction but if you haven't heard about it yet, it's a wireless HiFi speaker system.

SONOS PLAY:1 Wireless Music System

No reviews
Verdict: There are quite a few options for Bluetooth speaker systems on the market today and these range in price from affordable Edifier systems to very expensive Bose systems and everything in between. While Bluetooth does offer a few benefits including affordability, compatibility and overall ease of use.
Pros: Great software, Build quality, Decent audio quality, Easy to use and setup, Comes with the SONOS Bridge, Flexible options and easy to setup/add other SONOS gear
Cons: The SONOS PLAY:1 is a great setup and if you snag a couple of these, you'll likely be very happy. The overall build quality of the hardware as well as the engineering of the software is fantastic. I'm a fan, Needs a pair to really appreciate quality, functionality, Not cheap

Big sound, small package: Sonos Play:1 reviewed

4.5

Pros: Amazing amount of sound from such a small package, Compact and very well designed, Wired or wireless network connection, Perfect little addition to anyone with a Sonos system already, Deals with humidity well, making it ideal for placement in the bathroom when you're having a shower
Cons: No battery included in the unit, Requires the Sonos Bridge, which means first time buyers can't just spend the initial price to gain access into the Sonos system

Sonos Play:1

4.5
Verdict: The Sonos Play:1 is the baby brother in Sonos's line-up of wireless speakers. It's the cheapest Sonos speaker, selling for £199. There are some unavoidable sonic compromises in a small speaker like this, but Sonos has shown rivals how it should be done with the Play:1.
Pros: Small and convenient, Great sound quality for size, Good value

Sonos Play 1

No reviews
Verdict: Sonos – of Santa Barbara, California – started the wireless, multiroom music craze back in 2004 and remains the king of the genre. Now I have two minor gripes with the Sonos ecosystem – gripes, I have to say, upon which I stand almost alone.

Sonos Play:1 review

5.0
Verdict: Sonos, the wireless digital audio solution, offers great audio solutions for the home - but it's also been a bit of a rich man's game. Or it has been until now, as the Sonos Play:1 is a step towards changing that.
Pros: Good sound, multi-room support, easy setup, lots of options for streaming services, app for smartphone and tablet
Cons: Single unit means mono output, you'll want a smartphone or a tablet and a streaming service subscription to get the most out of it

Awesome Product!

5.0

Pros: Amazing flexibility and versatility, Attractive and effective design, Easy to install, Excellent sound quality
Cons: Humidity resistant, not weather proof, not cheap

Great Sound, software could be improved
