About the product
The most compact Sonos speaker. A perfect fit for bookshelves, counters, and other snug places. PLAY:1 lets you enjoy great-sounding music wherever you want to listen. Surprisingly Powerful: PLAY:1 sounds a lot bigger than it looks, thanks to two Class-D amplifiers and custom-built drivers, all meticulously tuned to the speaker’s unique acoustic architecture. Trueplay Speaker Tuning: This exclusive Sonos feature fine-tunes your PLAY:1 to make sure you get the very best sound in any room, no matter where you place it. Humidity Resistant: Enjoy your favorite songs in music-starved places like bathrooms and outdoor patios. Stereo Pair With Another PLAY:1: Turn each speaker into separate left and right channels for wider, bigger and deeper stereo sound. Home Theater Rears: Add a pair or PLAY:1 speakers to PLAYBAR and SUB for an epic surround sound experience.
The new Airstream S200 Wi-Fi speaker concentrates state-of-the-art functionality, advanced digital processing and powerful amplification within a diminutive speaker design, smaller than the average one-box system but endowed with the latest tech to generate a deceptively big stereo sound from every conceivable audio source. With a footprint barely bigger than a DVD, the curvaceous S200 proves that genuinely engaging audio quality and lifestyle design are, in fact, beautifully compatible. Connect with extraordinary entertainment, wire-free and so living-friendly.
