Sonos Play:3

 

Wireless streaming without the usual Sonos wallet worries.

Excellent software ; Great Sound ; Good value

No auxiliary input

Sonos's brilliant streaming solutions are now available at an affordable price. The Play:3 sounds great, gives you access to a dazzling array of content and can be controlled completely with an Android smartphone or iPhone. Even if you have no...

Sonos Play:3 review

 

Impressively musical ; disperses sound well ; flexible over positioning ; free control apps

Requires a wired connection or an optional extra ; dedicated remote is expensive

Best multi-room streaming system, Awards 2013. Sonos's Play:3 is also a cracking little performer

Sonos Play:3 review: Still worth buying eight years on?

 

With so much choice out there, is the Sonos Play:3 still worth considering if you can get your hands on one? Here's our review.

Sounds great ; Vertical or horizontal orientation ; Numerous features through Sonos app ; Voice control with compatible Alexa or Google Assistant device

Old design ; Sonos Beam or Sonos Move more appealing in terms of features and design ; Not widely available anymore

Is the Play:3 worth buying if you can get hold of it? If you don't mind the slightly older design, then yes, because it still sounds great Sonos is always updating its speakers with software updates, constantly improving them years after they are...

Sonos Play:1 & Play:3 review

 

When it comes to wireless audio streaming Sonos sets the benchmark. The company has been the top multiroom dog for over a decade thanks to its consistently good products and ease of use. But there are some aspects of the Sonos system that warrant...

Solid build; tight, powerful sound; impressive app integration; optional subwoofer/soundbar

Possibly a bit too clinical sounding; dull design; ignores hi-res

Sonos Play:3 review

 

Can the latest gadget from the wireless streaming pioneer compete with its AirPlay-packing rivals?

Adios, wires ; Surprisingly tasty sound

All that tech comes at a cost

Easy to install, sounds great and won't break the bank. Top marks all round

Sonos Play:3 review

 

New wireless music system is cheaper but is it still as cheerful?

Easy to use ; Excellent free apps ; Cheaper than its predecessor ; Compact ; Lots of music options

Lower sound quality than Play:5 ; Still quite pricey ; Software could be better

The Play:3 is an excellent multi-room option and brings the Sonos system slightly closer to the realms of the common man's bank account. Does that mean it's worth saving up for? We think so.

Sonos Play:3 Review

 

The Sonos Play:3 is a network speaker that can accept audio inputs from a wide range of sources. The setup is modular, meaning you can buy one Play:3 at first and add to your Sonos range later via a ‘bridge' unit that links additional speakers....

The Sonos Play:3 is a really impressive network music player that is ideal for music fans with smaller homes to fill with sound. Though the need for a separate Bridge unit bumps up the price a smidgen, for £300 you have an incredibly flexible music...

Sonos Play:3 review

 

Although there's no doubt that Sonos is the best multi-room audio system you can buy, the downside has always been price. It's something that the company has tried to address over the years, and now with the Play:3 you can get Sonos for less than £300.

Excellent sound quality in a small package, the Play:3 is a good introduction to Sonos and a good way to expand an existing system

Sonos Play:3 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sonos Play:3 speaker dock is the big brother of the Play:1. We put the Play:3 through our tough lab tests to see whether, in this case, bigger is better.

Expert review by : Alun Taylor (reghardware.co.uk)

Sonos Play:3 network music player

 

Review Sonos wireless music systems have always been deeply desirable but they have also always been rather expensive. Now Sonos has released a one-box player aimed at those of us who don't own our own Caribbean island.

Sonos has at last built a wireless music box for the less well-off - and built a rather good one too. The Play:3 is physically small enough to be easily sited in any lounge, office or bedroom but produces a big enough sound to act as a primary stereo....
