Sonos Play: 1 Review

The Sonos Play: 1 is the latest addition to the Sonos line of multi room audio speakers. Sonos is one of the leading companies when it comes to audio streaming, but their products tend to be a little pricey, which is why the Sonos Play: 1 is such a big surprise. It not only offers the same quality you expect from a Sonos product, it is also reasonable priced.

We got our hands on the Sonos Play: 1, and this is what we think of it.


One of the things about the Sonos Play: 1 that we liked is the fact that it is very easy to install. If you have bought and used a Sonos product in the past, setting up the Sonos Play: 1 shouldn’t take you long. If it is your first time buying one, it also shouldn’t be a problem because all you need to do is hardwire it to your router via Ethernet.

The Sonos controller, which is needed for the setup is available on Windows and Mac, as well as both Android and iOS operating systems. The controller connects to the Sonos Play: 1 using your home Wi-Fi, and should only take a few minutes to set up.

Once you have installed the Sonos Play: 1, you will be able to tune in to over 100,000 internet radio stations, as well as music streaming services like Spotify. Any station you want to listen to can be streamed to other Sonos speakers in your house, and you also have the ability to listen to different stations in different rooms.

Audio Quality.

As previously mentioned, Sonos makes good quality speakers, and the Sonos Play: 1 is no exception. Despite its small size, the device is very powerful and provides you with quality audio output that doesn’t distort like other small audio devices do. For a device its size, it can get very loud and it comes with EQ settings that allow you to adjust the levels to your liking.


There is a saying that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, which is something that applies to the Sonos Play: 1. At first glance, it doesn’t look very powerful due to its size, which is far from the truth. The small size also makes it easy to put anywhere in the room, because it doesn’t take up a lot of space. The volume controls and the play/pause button are on top of it, giving you easy access to the controls.

Final Thoughts.

The Sonos Play: 1 delivers when it comes to sound quality and it is also very affordable, which makes it a great deal if you are looking for a superior quality audio device to stream music with.
