Music-playing flexibility, wherever and whenever you want, as Sonos says: "Fill your home with music."

The Sonos Play:1 Black Compact Wireless Speaker is designed to be part of the Sonos wireless Hi-fi concept, where speakers are placed in multiple rooms so you can enjoy your music anywhere. However, it functions just as well on its own or paired with another (stereo pair setting) which can then be used in conjunction with a sound bar, like the Sonos Playbar (Click Here) turning it into an impressive 3.1 channel sound set-up, ideal for your movie-listening pleasure.

It's solidly constructed and is petite in size so it is tailor-made to be a discreet satellite speaker in the corner of the room or on a shelf. Yet, despite its size there's plenty of power on hand to wow an audience.

You have simple, efficient control of the of the Play:1 speaker either from your laptop/PC, smartphone or tablet. It's easy to set-up and before you know it you'll be streaming your favourite tunes, the best of internet radio as well as services such as Spotify, Amazon Cloud and Deezer.

Benefiting from a two-driver speaker system - with one tweeter and one 3.5" mid-woofer - the Sonos powers each of these by a dedicated amplifier, meaning clearer sound and better bass response.

If you're after a speaker system that can double as part of your home cinema theatre as well as a smart, ultra-convenient hub for streaming your music around your home when paired with extra speakers, the Sonos Play:1 Compact Wireless Speakers is a must-have.

What the home entertainment press are saying about the Sonos Play:1 Compact Wireless Speaker:

"The Play:1 has won us over in exactly the same way the Play:3 and Play:5 did. Its ease of use is a huge draw, but this is backed up by a fantastic sound quality and an affordable price. Whether you're looking to get started on your Sonos journey, or you're adding bits to an existing set-up, you won't regret finding a spot for the Play:1 in your home." - What Hi-Fi? Magazine.

"If you want to build a wireless speaker system around your house, the Sonos Play:1 is an extremely good place to start. The speaker is supremely easy to set up and use, and sound quality is excellent across a wide range of music and radio broadcasts. As a result, the Play:1 shoots straight to the top of our Best Buy list." - Which?
