Sonos releases new PLAY:3 entry-level HiFi wireless speaker


If you don't know, we're huge fans of Sonos here at Gear Live. There's nothing else like it if you're a music lover for managing and listening to just about anything you can think of, in any room of your home, wirelessly. Today, Sonos is introducing a new product aimed at lowering the cost of entry into Sonos ownership with the PLAY:3. The PLAY:3 is a small, Hi-Fi streaming unit that sports three integrated speakers (a tweeter and two mid-range) and three digital amps, offering big sound. There's no subwoofer (save that for the PLAY:5, formerly known as the Sonos S5) on board, but the PLAY:3 does rock a passive bass "radiator" to make up for it, and we hear it works well. You can pick up the PLAY:3 for $299 from Sonos directly, or in stores. If you're new to Sonos, you'll also need to pick up a $49 Bridge to create the Sonos wireless network in your home. Once you have that, you can then just add more Sonos zones to any room in your home, and they'll automatically pick up the network and start working. It's good times.

We expect to get a test unit of the PLAY:3 in tomorrow, and we will start testing and let you know our thoughts.

What are the technical specifications of this product? If you’re going to pay that kind of mony for a wireless speaker, then it had better have a decent RMS power outpoot and frequency response range, not to mention battery life. It’s important that any speaker company readily supply this vital information, otherwise you could easily be wasting your money on a cheap product that doesn’t sound good.
