PLAY:3 | Immersive HiFi sound.

  • Two mid-range drivers and one tweeter, each with a dedicated amp, and a bass radiator

    The PLAY:3 provides pure, clean sound that is perfect for bringing room-filling music to a kitchen, bedroom, office, or just about any room in your home. A bass radiator produces powerful low notes while two mid-range drivers and one tweeter fill out the sound. Go vertical, go horizontal, hide it on a shelf, or mount it on the wall.
    Start with any Sonos speaker and start streaming your favorite music. Continue to add as many Sonos speakers as you want throughout your home, wirelessly

        What is Sonos?

        • Go wireless.

          Set up Sonos with the push of a button. The unique technology from Sonos brings your entire home audio system together on your home WiFi or over a dedicated wireless network. The end result? Unrivaled performance and zero drop-outs.
        • Imagine a speaker for every room.

          Sonos wireless speakers are custom designed for every space in your home. From the compact PLAY:1 to the TV-compatible PLAYBAR, the Sonos line-up fills any room with crystal clear HiFi sound at any volume.
        • Control every room, from any device.

          The Sonos App lets you browse and play your music from any device. Use your Android, iPad, iPhone, Mac and PC devices to stream different songs in each room, group rooms together, or hear the same beat everywhere.
        • All your music, all together.

          Play your iTunes library, listen to your online music services, and get access to thousands of free radio stations worldwide.

        Easier than ever wireless, in any situation

        • PLAY:3 doesn't need a BRIDGE or BOOST to connect to your home WiFi. If you've got great WiFi at home, simply buy any Sonos speaker and set it up on your home WiFi network using the free Sonos app. If your home WiFi network just isn't reliable enough, get the Sonos BRIDGE or BOOST to make sure the music never stops.

          Comments about SONOS - PLAY:3 Wireless Speaker for Streaming Music - White:

          Yes this was a Gift to myself...Ihated having to use those Bluetooth speakers though they were handy for working in the yard but burned up my Phones Data so I limit using. I purchased originally just one Play-1 to test the speaker out in my new Laundry room and thought Wow...I need a few more. So a few days later purchased 2 more Play-1's and the Sound Bar for my TV and I couldn't be happier, hoping later this year or next I'll get a couple Play-3's to pair w/Play-1's and the Bass speaker to complete my Total Surround sound package. But now I'm contemplating getting a Play-3 for my Wood shop so I can jettison my HiFi w/wired speakers...perhaps tomorrow I'll place my order, space is a premium in my shop and this system is just awesome.

            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.

            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.

                I bought a home with Sonos sound bar. I have added a play 5, a sub, and two play 3's. Unbelievable sound quality! This is addictive! I have been taking my Play 5 out of the kitchen to my patio in the evenings. I now have that permanently in my kitchen a paly 3 upstairs, a play 3 in my Master Bedroom and have ordered a play 3 for outside patio. I have owned Bose and Harmin Kardin systems. Both are good quality Sonos is better!

                  I stayed with a friend who had Sonos, and was so impressed I bought my own.
                  One problem (and I found a solution) that was not mentioned. Certain older purchased songs from itunes cannot be played on Sonos (itunes fault, not Sonos) as they are protected. The solution was to purchase itunes match (cost = 25 USD per year, but just one year subscription will solve the problem), although there was a bit of time involved in updating my relevant music

                    It's hard to believe how amazing the sound is that comes out of this. I'm not an audiophile, so maybe I'm "missing" something from a wired set up. That being said, from my perspective I went from having nothing to having awesome sound in less than 5 minutes.

                    My family and I love listening to Pandora on this or the MLB App to catch some baseball.

                        I was looking at investing in whole-home audio systems and the SONOS system came heavily recommended at my local audio store. I purchased 2 Play:3 speakers and a Playbar. I could not be happier with them.

                        The software is extremely easy to use. I have a controller installed on my phone and my laptop and it is nearly seamless to transition between the two. I have yet to hear ANY audio hiccup (which is very surprising for a wireless speak setup.) The options for streaming music are impressive. Things simply work... which is a rarity in technology.

                        I am already planning my next SONOS purchase to add audio to more rooms in my house.
