I was initially a bit disappointed with the software. I expected it to function like any regular bluetooth speaker, where all sound would be piped wirelessly to the device. Instead, playing music meant going through the dedicated Sonos app, where a list of pre-approved apps and integrations were awaiting my choice. This meant I couldn't just, say, hit 'play' on a Youtube video and get the sound to come out. It doesn't work like that. Sound is synchronised (perfectly, I might add) through Sonos servers, using a clever orchestration of local software, firmware built into the speaker, and the Sonos service itself. It's really very clever, but the downside is that sound that has no discernible 'source' URI cannot be controlled remotely so you're limited to just the apps it supports.
In practice, this isn't a problem. Since purchasing the device, the Sonos app has grown leaps and bounds. I've been a frequent member of the Sonos Beta Program, and was able to try the 'deeper' Spotify integration early on (initially, one had to use the Sonos app to play Spotify tracks, which was quite a fiddly process and didn't use the native UI.) Nowadays, everyone gets it as standard, and within Spotify you can simply select Sonos as the source speaker and stay within the Spotify app, either on mobile or through a laptop/desktop device. This is my primary use of the Sonos, although there are plenty of other apps (and now, Alexa too) that you'll almost certainly find that what you want to use them for, is supported.
Where this device really shines, is when paired with a second speaker in a stereo or multi-room setup. I spent the first month listening to music in mono, which, albeit a rich and satisfying sound, lacked depth/direction. When I sprung for a second Sonos to act as a sibling to the first, the experience was stepped up to a whole other level. The sound is so crisp and clear, and not at all distorted even at maximum levels. It's just pure, beautiful noise - the kind that could keep me in a permanent feud with neighbours if I'm not careful!
Pairing with other speakers is trivial, and you can elect to join an existing 'room' or speaker group, or to pair as a stereo combo with another device. I've done both. When in stereo mode, the music is PERFECTLY in sync. There's some seriously impressive tech at play to handle the complexity of data flying back and forth between devices (all of which are individually connected to your router wirelessly, and receive their own data packets of music), and sound in step. This is irrespective of where placed versus your router; Sonos take care of the nitty-gritty details like handling packet losses, different connection speeds, etc. Very clever stuff.
Or, you can elect to have the speaker act as its own group, which then makes it easy to choose, say, to push music through to your kitchen or bedroom from the same app.
Very happy with the quality all-round -- the sound, the build, the reliability, there's just no faulting anything. I also find these very stylish in almost any setting (I opted for the white, which looks nice even surrounded by the all-black periphery of devices in vicinity of my speakers.) and plan on adding to my Sonos collection during the next sale, to push sound to even more rooms. Best speakers I've ever owned.
If you found this review helpful, please click 'yes' - thanks :-)
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.
Overall, excellent speaker, if you're considering a play 5, try going with 2 play 1s first.
