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 PLAY3WHITE Wireless Streaming Audio:

            I mostly stream Pandora though the Bridge to the Play3. I just have one Play3 and occasionally I want music in a different room so I just carry the Play3 to the room I want music in. It just takes a minute or two for it to connect to the Bridge and to be up and running. I REALLY loved how easy this system was to set up, I had no glitches with it at all. The sound is really nice especially considering it's just the one unit. The app controller for Android is the one weak link. I find it slow to respond to "thumbs up/down" buttons on Pandora. And don't try to pause or change volume while it's processing the "thumbs up/down" information, it just won't happen for a couple minutes. Overall, though it was just what I wanted and I'm very happy with it.

              There was some difficulty with my setup due to the secure SonicWall router that I use. My wireless network is isolated from my wired one. Firewalls rules and explicit routing didn't fix the issue. Finally had to buy a second router and use it as a wirless bridge.

                  I got this system from my brother for a gift. Although I am rather a novice with technological gadgets, set up was simple. The sound is great and I will purchase new speakers to add on. My only problem has been that I have added new music to my library and although it has been set up to update itself, I cannot get my new files to move to the system. I also cannot figure out how to open it on my iPhone. I have the application and follow directions, but it doesn't recognize my speaker.
