I bought two PLAY 1's and when paired together in stereo mode you more or less have the sound quality equivalent to that of a good mid-range amplifier and speaker setup. I’ve been using my speakers for four months and unlike with Bluetooth, I’ve not had a single dropout. Music is seamlessly streamed over my Wi-Fi and it sounds fabulously clear.
They’re heavy and very well built and they ooze quality and understated style, with some basic control buttons on top of each speaker. There is no 3.5mm input and it does not have Bluetooth functionality. Setup is straightforward and it’s all done via the recently overhauled app.
There are lots of music services available to add. Amazon Music, Google Play Music, Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Tidal, TuneIn Radio and loads more that I've never heard of. The ones I use integrate perfectly.
The app is easy and intuitive to use and when installed on a device it acts like a remote control. It allows you to add 'Favourites' (playlists, songs, radio stations, artists, etc), control room settings if you have multiple Sonos speakers, adjust the EQ, Add or Remove services, set alarms and all sorts of other things that you can tailor to your exact personal preference. Both the Apple and Android apps occasionally lag. I can also control my speakers from my Windows 10 PC.
Finding and playing back music is a breeze. If I search for an Artist, Album, Track, etc it shows results from the various providers I’ve added (Google Play Music, Amazon Music and Spotify) as well as from my Network Attached Storage (when it’s switched on) and the particular device I’m using. I can then add tracks from all of those sources into a playlist if I want and the speakers play it back seamlessly.
Sonos are going to face competition from Apple and Google with their forthcoming Wi-Fi speakers but in the meantime, I highly recommend the Sonos PLAY 1 speakers.
Update 18/10/17: Amazon Alexa - It is now possible to connect Sonos speakers wirelessly to an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot, albeit with limited functionality.
The pros: it's an aesthetic hit thanks to its understated black and grey colour scheme and its sleak, almost cylindrical shape - a shape, I'm pleased to say, that makes it easy to place the Play 1 in a corner; it streams Radio Paradise flawlessly via TuneIn Radio, as it similarly does when streaming FLAC audio files from my NAS (there's a slight snag, however; see below); grouping speakers results in perfect timing during playback with no lag between one speaker and the other; and, perhaps most important of all, the speakers sound pretty good considering their diminutive size. In my particular case, however, I found that the speakers sound best when the bass is turned down a tad, which can be done with ease thanks to the accompanying Sonos app, which is pretty sleak itself, and also when the speakers are mounted on stands to give the resulting sound room to breathe, as it were. For what it's worth, I use Flexson Desk Stands as they're just as sleak as the speakers themselves and fulfil this function, sonic breathability, pretty much perfectly.
The cons: the vertical dispersion isn't great, so the speakers only sound at their best when they're at ear height and perhaps a bit higher; gapless playback isn't supported - at least, not when the speakers are streaming audio from my NAS. This means that when playing a live concert album, for example, there's a brief break between tracks; the Play 1, and presumably other Sonos speakers, doesn't stream audio files greater than 16/48. This means that if, like me, you have lots of hi-res audio files on your NAS, you'll either need to convert them to a supported sample rate beforehand - 16/44 or 16/48, depending on which is the most natural fit according to the original sample rate - or downsample and push them to the speaker on the fly as the Play 1 simply can't and/ or won't pull them across your network for playback all by itself. I use my Synology NAS's audio app, DS Audio Station, to downsample and push hi-res audio to my Sonos speakers on the fly, but it's a bit clunky in operation compared to the super smooth experience you get when the Sonos is doing the actual streaming.
In summary, if Sonos were to add gapless playback and support for hi-res audio files to all the things the Play 1 does so well, it would make it the perfect mini streaming speaker. As it is, however, and I say this with all due respect and sincerity, it's almost perfect!
EDIT: It turns out that the Play 1 can indeed stream gapless audio from my NAS when the speaker is doing the streaming; it's when audio is pushed to the Play 1 via DS Audio Station that playback isn't gapless. I guess that brings my overall rating of the Play 1 up to 4.5/5 :)
