Mighty little speaker,
This review is from: Sonos PLAY:3 Black - The Wireless Hi-Fi (Electronics)
I am well impressed with this. I have a fairly 'budget' hifi system consisting of Marantz separates and Monitor Audio speakers, and in comparison to these it of course doesn't compete. The hifi system simply has more scale to the sound, which is expected... However the Play 3 is not that far off when taking its size into account.
It can fill a small to medium sized room with sound with ease. The output itself is well balanced, with a surprising amount of bass for such a small cabinet. Overall I think if you are debating whether to get the Play 5 or the Play 3 this is the one to go for. It is cheaper, smaller and sounds very similar (Play 5 improvements in sound over the Play 3 are marginal in my opinion).
Setup was a doddle... It took about 1 min to set up, including downloading and installing the Sonos updates after which it was ready to go. Granted I already have Sonos setup elsewhere within my home, however it always surprises me just how easy it is to setup and use Sonos equipment.
Well worth it!
