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.
Sonos is the wireless Home Sound System that fills your entire home with great-sounding music. Use one app to stream different music to Sonos speakers in different rooms. Or send one song all through the house.
