SONOS Play:3 review (video)

 

 

SONOS  Play:3 is smaller, but packs a serious punch at $299

SONOS recently intro-ed an all new, smaller, friendly home music player/speaker called the[amazon_link id=”B005441AJC” target=”_blank” ] PLAY:3[/amazon_link].

It’s similar to the S5 in that it’s a single box that contains a set of speakers, an amplifier and can be controlled using a computer or smartphone running their compatible app.

A set of 3 integrated speakers (one tweeter and two 3” mid-range) and 3 dedicated Class-D digital amplifiers comrpise the speaker system.  A special sensor detects if the speaker is positioned vertically or horizontally and modifies the speaker’s output accordingly to ensure clean, balanced, room-filing sound in any position.

Star Rating: 
Cost: [amazon_link id=”B005441AJC” target=”_blank” ]$299[/amazon_link]
Where to Buy: [amazon_link id=”B005441AJC” target=”_blank” ]Amazon[/amazon_link]

Since there is no actually storage or drive on the PLAY:3, it connects to the Internet and can download music from a variety of locations include Pandora, Napster, Spotify and a NAS.  Of course you can always download from your laptop, iPad, iPhone, iPod and 100,000+ Internet radio stations as well.

The [amazon_link id=”B005441AJC” target=”_blank” ]SONOS Play 3[/amazon_link], as with all SONOS products can sync wirelessly with other players allowing you to enjoy perfectly syncronized music throughout every room in your home.

With the[amazon_link id=”B005441AJC” target=”_blank” ] Play:3[/amazon_link], you still need to purchase SONOS’ wireless Bridge, which physically connects to your home’s router, and is necessary if you want to connect the PLAY:3, or any of their other players to the Net to stream music. The irony here is that the Play:3 has Wi-Fi.  Having said that, SONOS did drop the price of the Bridge to $49, and you’ll need just one in your home, provided of course all of your players are within its wireless proximity.

You can purchase the PLAY:3 today for $299 at [amazon_link id=”B005441AJC” target=”_blank” ]Amazon[/amazon_link].
