Sonos are already a leading brand when it comes to wireless HiFi systems. Today, they have gone a step further by introducing the Sonos Play:1, a compact and powerful wireless speaker that transforms music listening at home. It streams your music to any room in the home, in high fidelity sound. It is available from the 29th of October, at a suggested retail price of £169, and as a Christmas special, Sonos are throwing in a free Bridge worth £39 too!
The concept is simple. Buy one to play music wirelessly. Buy two to have stereo effect. Buy more to start getting 5.1 surround sound. Buy more, and you can have the same music playing all over your house (Oxford, the land of house parties, could do with a lot of these). The beauty of it all is that it works on Sonos’ own dedicated wireless network, so you’ll enjoy smooth music without any dropouts, anywhere in your home.
“Sonos was created upon the belief you should never have to choose between quality sound and an easy way to access all your music at home,” said John MacFarlane, CEO, Sonos, Inc. “The PLAY:1 makes getting started with Sonos even more accessible to music lovers than ever before.”
The joy doesn’t stop there. Built to last with premium materials, rock solid construction, and a sealed architecture means it is resistant to most humid conditions. Whether it will work in a sauna or not, we don’t know yet, but you probably won’t want to take it for a dip in the sea!
The speaker system works using a single, easy to use App. The app can access music services like Spotify, Rdio, Napster, Last.FM, etc. Listen to your music wherever it is stored, whether in the cloud, at home, on your phone.
Featuring a minimalist design, the Play:1 features a new button on top of the cabinet that allows you to play and pause your music with a single push of the button. Press twice to skip.
Obviously, at the end of the day, all you really want from your speakers is great sound. The Play:1 packs in two perfectly tuned Class D amplifiers, one 3.4″ mid-woofer, and one tweeter. All this gives you deep bass, crisp and clear sounds, and accurate high frequency response.
While we are yet to try this, we can surely tell you that the internet is full of nothing but great reviews!
