Sonos Play:1: a sound decision

Sonos Play:1

Getting to know my Sonos Play:1

Ten years ago, my wife gave me an iPod as a Christmas present. I loved it from the start: I had joined the digital music revolution. This Christmas, Karen gave me a Sonos Play:1 speaker. What a great piece of kit.

It wasn’t a chance present. I’d put a lot of time into researching various wifi speaker options. Initially, I was leaning towards Airplay speakers, but I was put off by reports of sound dropping out. (That tallied with my frustrating experience with Apple TV.)

My early experience reflects the positive reviews of the Sonos Play:1 on Techradar and elsewhere. The sound is excellent – it has made me rethink the idea that quality sound needs two, stereo, speakers. I’ve not experienced any lost connections. It was amazingly simple to set up my Sonos system. The only gripe was that Spotify disappeared from Sonos on Boxing Day but once that was sorted I found it really easy to play Spotify through Sonos.

Highly recommended.

PS: I got childish pleasure today from getting music to play on the Sonos speaker in the living room while I was upstairs. It reminded me of my schoolboy trick of startling my grandmother by changing TV channels on our first TV remote control in the 1970s when I was in another room…
