The peeps over at Sonos seem to have learned from their way and, rather than being late to the party, this time it's released the new Sonos 3.8 software ahead of time to ensure compatibility with OS X Mountain Lion. Android 4.0 also gets official support with this update, as does the upcoming Sonos Sub, the new wireless subwoofer add-on that the company will be releasing in June. You can grab the updated software for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and PC, and the software will then update all your Sonos hardware, ensuring everything is ready for the future.

We've been big fans of Sonos here at Gear Live for years. The wireless sound system is a pleasure to use and makes multi-room music a snap to set up. Today the company is introducing a new addition to its product line--the Sonos Sub.
The Sub aims to provide a simple (but expensive) way to add deep bass to your Sonos Play:3 and Play:5 units. You simple plug it into the wall and use the Sonos app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer to add it so your setup.
In this episode we open up the Sonos PLAY:3, the latest wireless Hi-Fi speaker system from Sonos. The PLAY:3 is the smallest wireless speaker system that Sonos offers, allowing you to plug it in and set it up just about anywhere, but still getting big sound. You can pair two of them together for a wide stereo sound stage, and you can also turn it vertical and it will automatically go into mono sound mode. We open up the PLAY:3 and show you how it looks - be on the lookout for our PLAY:3 review over on Bleeding Edge TV!
You can get the Sonos PLAY:3 now for $299.

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.
