The cheapest SONOS yet, introducing the PLAY:1


The freakishly awesome multi-room sound system SONOS has just released their latest speaker. The PLAY:1 is a single speaker that delivers everything you love about SONOS in an affordable and portable package. The custom-designed mid-woofer and tweeter are designed to deliver deep, rich and surprisingly big sound that’s crystal clear at any volume.

If this is your first SONOS speaker, you’ll need to connect it directly to your router via Ethernet, or if you’re already in the SONOS family and have a bridge, then you can place it anywhere in your house or outside if your WiFi signal permits. Anyone who has SONOS loves it, but the biggest criticism has always been the price. The PLAY:1 is likely going to invite new customers in and be the gateway to more speakers around the house.

PLAY:1 is built to last with premium materials and rock-solid construction. A sealed architecture creates resistance to the most humid conditions in the home, even steam from a running shower. Check out the exploded view of the internals below, that’s some quality construction there.


If you have that terrible problem of money burning a hole in your pocket, you could get a full SONOS package including the SONOS PLAY:1, PLAY:3, PLAY:5, SONOS PLAYBAR and SONOS SUB. Check out the funky launch video for the PLAY:1 below.

The SONOS PLAY:1 retails for $299, and for a limited time this holiday season, purchases come with a free BRIDGE valued at $75.
