About the product
PLAY:3 delivers richer, more robust sound than PLAY:1. Deeper bass, too. All of which makes it just right for places like bedrooms, kitchens, home offices and dining rooms. Single Speaker Stereo: PLAY:3 plays your favorite songs in full stereo. Three Class-D amplifiers and three custom-built drivers create a full, wide sound stage so the instruments and vocals really shine. More Powerful Bass: A rear-firing bass radiator pumps out exceptional deep lows for a speaker its size. Trueplay Speaker Tuning: This exclusive SONOS feature fine-tunes your PLAY:3 to make sure you get the very best sound in any room, no matter where you place it.
Bowers & Wilkins T7 combines high-quality Bluetooth wireless streaming with compact size, and rechargeable convenience for fantastic listening anywhere you are. T7 comes from Bowers & Wilkins, an audio company with close to five decades of experience creating the loudspeakers that world-leading recording studios such as Abbey Road depend upon. Listen and you’ll see. Thanks to cutting-edge Bowers & Wilkins technologies, T7 delivers best-in-class sound for portable wireless speakers.
