Class-D amplifiers
Two Class-D digital amplifiers perfectly tuned to match the speakers and acoustic architecture.

Tweeter

Mid-Woofer
One mid-woofer ensures the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments, while also delivering a deep, rich bass.

Stereo Pair
Turn two PLAY:1s into separate left and right channel speakers to create wider, bigger, and deeper sound.

5.1 Home Cinema
Add two PLAY:1 speakers to PLAYBAR and SUB for a true surround sound experience.

Adjustable bass and treble controls
Optimise sound performance using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms

If you thought time would have aged the Play:1, think again. It remains a brilliant-sounding wireless speaker, and a decent passage into multi-room for those on a tight budget.
It’s not perfect, but if hi-res support and offline playback isn’t the be all and end all, then it’s hard to resist.

 screen-shot-2016-11-14-at-21-18-12 The Play:1 is a great addition to the Sonos range, as it suddenly gives existing Sonos owners a lot more options. For people that want to get started with Sonos, this is a great entry-level device that doesn’t cost an absolute fortune.
