Two Custom-Designed Drivers + Dedicated Amplifiers: The Sonos PLAY:1 uses two state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with two drivers (1′ tweeter/3.5′ mid-woofer) to deliver great sound to any room. The wireless music system provides pure, clean sound that is perfect for bringing room filling music to a kitchen, bedroom, office, or just about any room in your home.
SonosNet Wireless Mesh Network: The Sonos PLAY:1 brings great sounding music wirelessly to any room in your house, without a big wiring project. SonosNet, a proprietary wireless mesh network technology, provides superior wireless range for whole-house coverage, ensures synchronous music playback, and avoids sources of wireless interference. The transmitting range of the PLAY:1’s built-in wireless system is approximately 100′, depending upon your home’s layout.
Multi-Zone Compatibility: You can place a PLAY:1 in each zone where you want to listen to music. The Sonos Digital Music System can accept up to 32 Sonos players. With multiple zones, you can play the same or different songs in different rooms. The PLAY:1 can be combined with other Sonos components; including the PLAY:3 or PLAY:5 amplified wireless music players, the Connect:Amp zone player (ZP120), and the Connect zone player (ZP90); all sold separately.
Network Connection: The Sonos PLAY:1 connects to your home network via its rear-panel Ethernet jack which connects to your broadband router. If the PLAY:1 will not be located near your router, you can connect a Sonos Bridge (616BR100, sold separately) to the router instead; the Sonos Bridge will then wirelessly connect to the PLAY:1. One Sonos component must be connected to your broadband router.
Music Streaming Services: The Sonos PLAY:1 gives you access to unlimited music; such as your iTunes library, your favorite music services, and thousands of Internet radio stations, shows, and podcasts.
Sonos Controller: The Sonos PLAY:1 allows you to control its audio setup, playback functions, and search features through the Sonos Controller software for Windows and Mac computers, or from the Sonos Controller app for Apple iOS and Android devices. You’ll have access to thousands of internet radio stations, dozens of online music services, your iTunes music, and your network music library; all from one control app on your computer/laptop or smartphone/tablet.
