The wireless music system provides pure, clean sound that is perfect for bringing room filling music to a kitchen, bedroom, office, or just about any room in your home. A bass radiator produces powerful low notes while two mid-range drivers and one tweeter fills out the sound.

  • 1 tweeter creates a crisp and accurate high frequency response.

Mid-range drivers

  • 2 dedicated mid-range drivers ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments.

Bass radiator

  • A bass radiator is tuned to use the energized air volume inside of PLAY:3 to provide deep, clean and surprisingly powerful bass from such a small package.

All-digital sound architecture

  • From the recording studio to your home the music is reproduced as the artist intended. All filter settings, active equalization, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry so there's absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.

Adjustable bass and treble controls

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

Bose, Harmin Kardin, or SONOS !
I bought a home with Sonos sound bar. I have added a play 5, a sub, and two play 3's. Unbelievable sound quality! This is addictive! I have been taking my Play 5 out of the kitchen to my patio in the evenings. I now have that permanently in my kitchen a paly 3 upstairs, a play 3 in my Master Bedroom and have ordered a play 3 for outside patio. I have owned Bose and Harmin Kardin systems. Both are good quality Sonos is better!

It's hard to believe how amazing the sound is that comes out of this. I'm not an audiophile, so maybe I'm "missing" something from a wired set up. That being said, from my perspective I went from having nothing to having awesome sound in less than 5 minutes.

My family and I love listening to Pandora on this or the MLB App to catch some baseball.

Great Product - but itunes issue
I stayed with a friend who had Sonos, and was so impressed I bought my own.
One problem (and I found a solution) that was not mentioned. Certain older purchased songs from itunes cannot be played on Sonos (itunes fault, not Sonos) as they are protected. The solution was to purchase itunes match (cost = 25 USD per year, but just one year subscription will solve the problem), although there was a bit of time involved in updating my relevant music

Good for rock/pop and small ensembles
I use the Sonos3 as our main music player in the home.
We mostly listen to pop and rock music and solo instruments (classical). -
The Sonos is not unfortunately not suited for playing symphonic music or classical music with more than a few instruments. - The sound becomes muffled, and distinct instrument sounds are lost making it a noisy experience that does no justice to the work being played.

Outstanding sound and clarity!
I was looking at BOSE speakers and the Sonos was next to it - once I heard the sound I bought it!
Easy to set-up and play from phone, computer, etc. The sound amplifies into several rooms - better than my old large speakers and stereo system!
