Sonos is a company specialized in multi-room wireless music systems. The Sonos Play:3 is their smallest all-in-one player, featuring three speakers with three dedicated Class D digital amplifiers. It is available in black and white and can be set in vertical or horizontal position. The user can install two Play:3 in the same room so one acts as the left channel and the other one as the right. It is also possible to set several of them in different places of the house, and add them all to the SonosNet wireless network with a single touch.
The Sonos Play:3 has an Ethernet port so you can connect it to the internet and/or a domestic network. This feature allows the user to listen to thousands of internet radio stations without a PC. Also, you can link up to 16 different devices to it so you can play music stored in your Windows and/or Mac computer, as well as music in your Storage Area Network (NAS) devices. It can play MP3, WMA, AAC, AAC+, OGG, FLAC, WAV, AIFF and iTunes Plus files, and play music through several different online services, like Napster.
During June, the brand’s distributor in Spain will be offering the Sonos Play:3, a Sonos Bridge and a free 60-day subscription to Napster’s online music service for just 300 EUR. This is a great deal, considering the Sonos Play:3 alone is normally worth 300 EUR, the Sonos Bridge is 50 EUR and the subscription is 10 EUR.
Its size: 132 x 268 x 160 millimeters. It weighs around 2.6 kilograms and features three speakers, one for high-frequency and two for mid-frequency sounds, and a passive radiator. It can stream your music from computers with Windows XP or higher, or Mac OS X 10.6 or higher. The Sonos Bridge can improve the wireless capabilities of any other Sonos player, by increasing the range of the router it is connected to.
The Sonos Play:3 does not only work with Napster, but also with a lot of other online music services, like Spotify, Amazon Cloud Player, AUPEO!, Deezer, iHeartRadio, JUKE, Last.fm, MOG, Pandora, Rdio, Slacker, SiriusXM, Songl, TuneIn or WiMP, for example. Also, Sonos’ free app lets you control the whole multi-room music system from your Android smart phone, iPhone, iPad, and/or Windows/Mac computer.
