A Multi-Room music system
Expand your home audio experience with Multi-Room technology. Play almost any music track from any source - your personal collection, a streaming service or your phone - in any room you choose, all controlled by your Smartphone.
Multi-Room offers the ultimate in audio convenience and control. Manage your music on one device and build your system by adding other compatible Multi-Room speakers and components made by the same brand.
Wireless speaker excellence
The ultra-compact PLAY:1 allows you to access the incredible range of music from your iTunes library, favourite online music services and in excess of 100,000 free internet radio stations, shows and podcasts.
Two custom-designed drivers with a 3.5" mid range speaker, a tweeter and dedicated amps for provide incredibly powerful, detailed Hi-Fi sound for all your favourite music. All of these scintillating highs and thunderous lows are available throughout your home at any volume, without you needing to dock your input device.
Connect your speakers more freely
An amazing new addition to the capabilities of the Sonos system, Sonos have now released a free upgrade available on all new and already purchased Sonos systems. With this Sonos update you won't need a Sonos BRIDGE for Multi-Room playback between your speakers, making things even simpler.
You will be prompted on the Sonos Controller app that an update is required.
Now you can play music in sync between rooms on Sonos speakers, or play different tunes in each room all from your Apple device. You can now allow up to 32 people to add music to a playlist in any room using their own iPhone, to create wonderfully interactive party nights.
Please note that if you're using a Sonos PLAYBAR with a subwoofer or wish to build a 5.1 home theatre system, you'll still need to use the BRIDGE.
Easy setup with reliable wireless connection
The PLAY: 1 Wirelessis so simple to set up, requiring no rewiring or complex programming. The simplest way to get started is to download the free Sonos app and then follow the simple instructions.
If you have an internet router in the same room as where you want to play your tunes, you'll be able to use an Ethernet cable to connect it straight to your PLAY:1.
Establish a personal wireless network so you can play music from a compatible Android or Apple device. If you prefer, there's the option to connect a Sonos BRIDGE to your wireless router for a wireless link to the Sonos PLAY:1 Wireless Multi-Room Music System.
This innovative option allows you to move the compact Hi-Fi around different rooms, creating a personal wireless network to play back music from any compatible device with a wireless facility.
Control and expand your music
You'll be able to search, browse and play music over your Sonos PLAY:1 Multi-Room Speaker using the dedicated Sonos Control or the free Sonos Controller Apps for your Android, iPhone, iPod touch or iPad devices.
The device also allows you to add as many Sonos players as you like around your house – thanks to its wireless technology, you'll be able to play different songs in every room or bathe your home in the sound of the same tune.
A Hi-Fi with multiple uses
Your PLAY:1 will work brilliantly on its own, or you can add a second PLAY:1 to create a stereo pair for room-filling audio. You'll even be able to use them with a Sonos PLAYBAR and SUB to bring an astounding 5.1 surround experience to your home.
