Awesome. Very Happy.
Great sound and overall system. I wish the prices were more reasonable.
Love the Play 1. Perfect "gateway drug" for the Sonos system. Well worth the $199. Sound output is incredible for its size. I started with the Play 1 and a Bridge for an xmas present. Its placed in my living room and fills it with clear deep rich sound. I don't think I have ever needed the volume more than 1/3 of the way.||Sonos controller app is by far the best innovation. No more dockin
Great speaker, great service
The Play 1 is great. Easy setup, really good sound, especially for its size. Worldwide Stereo service even better. Needed to exchange for a different color and process was totally painless. Fast shipping and good communication.
