What is Sonos?

Sonos Sub

How it works

Sonos is a system of HiFi wireless speakers and audio components. It unites your digital music collection in one app that you control from any device. Play what you want in every room over a dedicated wireless network. Sonos speakers work together to ensure rock-solid wireless performance, with no skips, delays, or drops.

Go wireless

Perfect sync

Build a house of sound, one room at a time. Play different music in any room or the same song everywhere, in perfect sync. Sonos speakers can talk to each other to stay in perfect sync--even on WiFi.

Powerful mesh network

Sonos offers an exceptionally powerful dedicated wireless network for music, and it gets stronger every time you add a speaker.

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

Control every room, from any device

Powerful app with free updates

Different music sources from one app combined with complete multi-room capabilities so you can listen to your entire world of music in every room of your home. Compatible with Android, iPad, iPhone, Mac and PC devices. Sonos offers free software updates regularly to make your system feel brand new, even if you bought your speakers five years ago.

Create your ideal home theater system

Rock solid wireless

BRIDGE or BOOST lets you wirelessly connect your SUB to a PLAYBAR and PLAY:1 or PLAY:3 rear speakers for an immersive 5.1 surround sound experience that's simple to set up and control.

The dedicated Sonos network is required for expanding your home theater because it ensures incredibly low latency between PLAYBAR and SUB or rear speakers. With BRIDGE and BOOST, you don't experience any lip-sync delays when you're watching your favorite TV shows or movies.

Having gradually updated my HiFi which started with a Play 5 for the kitchen and then included the Sonos pre-amp to run my very large Tannoy D700's in the lounge. I then decided I wanted more sound in the kitchen and went for the Sonos amp to run B&W M1's plus a Cambridge Audio sub. I then got a call from my local HiFi shop to inform me that I should come and listen to the new Sonos Sub. Always bad news as it usually costs a lot of money!
So went and had a look and listen and was blown away. Needles to say I have now replaced the kitchen set-up with 2 x Play 3's and the Sub (which at the moment is sitting on the worktop (and looks great). This set-up is much, much, much better than the B&W/Sonos/Cambridge Audio as it is all designed to work together with less wires and more flexibility. The sound quality as superb playing anything at any level and can go very, very loud indeed. The sub does not distort, but everything in the kitchen rattles.
If comparing to my Tannoy D700's, the Sonos is nearly as good. The Tannoys deliver a warmer richer sound whilst the Sonos set-up is more crisp and clean. I am sorely tempted to now go for 2 x Play 5's and a Sonos Sub to replace the Tannoy set-up but it's a tough one.
Money wise, it will cost around £1,100 for the 2 x Play 3's and Sub. Expensive yes, but it is a full music centre and you can start with 1 x Play 3, add another when the budget is there (and make them into a stereo pair) and then finally add the Sub to give the extra oomph. Yes, it is little pricey at £600 but beautifully made/looks great and works really well. In addition, you can tune it to the environment in which you are sighting it and change the base level to suit your own taste. Lastly unlike some other subs, it isn't just boom, boom, boom. It does an excellent job of playing musically (if you know what I mean!)

I was happy, more than happy with my Play 5 in the living room. I went to buy another Play 5 for the kitchen and they demoed the Sub. I ended up with both another Play 5 and the Sub and an uneasy feeling I'd spent too much . I was annoyed because I swore I'd never spend that much on the sub.

A few hours of listening and I can say I have no regrets. The Sub is subtle. It's not a boom box. It fills out the bottom frequencies linearly. You get bass that is warm and sweet. Even at low volumes the sub is doing a great job of filling things out. Trouble is, non sub rooms now sound terribly thin.

One thing to note if you have young kids or cats is the speakers are not grilled so placement to avoid curiosity leading to damage is something to consider.

It's a lot of money, but I think it's a worthwhile investment to take a system to an altogether new level.

I thought I was happy with my Play1's in stereo set up - they have remarkable sound with good Bass and sound great in stereo (better in my mind than a single Play 5 that I have in another rooms) having read reviews I have just added the Sub to them... Wow what a difference. The Sub does all the 'heavy lifting' for the bass and the Play 1's just then focus on the mid and treble. The result is magic and it all sounds so effortless. The bass is rich in tone, the mids and vocals much more rounded and sweet treble over the top. Turning the sub on and off its difference is amazing. Is it worth £600? Frankly the Play 1's are great, look lovely and combined give a great sound but if you have the extra money I doubt you will be disappointed with the sub. One additional benefit when I link rooms the sub adds background to the speakers in the other room too! It is great in party mode.

This really is the perfect upgrade to the Sonos TV speaker. It adds depth and gravity without the thumbing boom associated with cheaper subs. Just add in a couple of Play 1s as a rear pair and you have a wireless 5.1 system. This was the only way my wife would let me get away with it - she is a 'wire free' gal.

I've had this in my Wishlist for about 6 months and in my home for about 45mins and I am figuratively and physically blown away.

Let's do the setup first: I wasn't able to connect the sub through the Sonos Android app which does offer the option of adding a sub but only seems to accept players (with the volume + mute button combo), however the desktop (Mac) application does switch between the Player button combo and the sub's single button and I was able to pair it without any drama, the controller app also applied a software update.

I skipped the calibration option (I'll get around to it later) as I was dying to hear this thing in action. I queued-up my favourite track 'Olympians' by F Buttons (Amazon probably won't let me put in their actual name) and hit Play...then it happened... it's like listening to music without ear mufflers, it's like I had previously been listening to music underwater, the all-encompassing warmth and richness the sub provides made me forget the price tag in an instant. It's not about floor-vibrating bass you can feel in your kidneys, this isn't a sound system at the Notting Hill carnival, this is about the extra dimension in your music that you are probably blissfully unaware of, the sub provides the backwash of colour in each and every one of your tracks.

I've spent a good deal of these 45 minutes playing with the 'SUB On' checkbox in the preferences to hear the before/after effect of the sub and the overriding impression is how did I used to think my Play:5 ever sounded as great as I thought, it's like a veil has been lifted.
