Sonos Introduces $199 PLAY1 Speaker

Sonos introduced its new PLAY1 speaker this week. At a retail price of $199, the PLAY1 is a welcome addition to Sonos complete line of multi-room audio products and is bound to be one of the hottest products at Grand this holiday season. The compact PLAY1 measures just 4.7″ wide by 6.4″ high allowing it to fit just about anywhere. But don’t let the compact footprint fool you. PLAY1 is outfitted with two Class D amplifiers to power its built-in woofer and tweeter and produce sound quality you’d expect from a much larger speaker. Of course PLAY1 also features all the streaming music capability you’ve come to know and love from Sonos. Not familiar with Sonos? Check out this video for a complete overview: Sonos Intro Video.

The versatile PLAY1 speaker is more than just a compact HiFi powerhouse. You can wirelessly pair two PLAY1s for true stereo output capable of filling larger spaces. If that’s not enough, add Sonos’ high performance SUB to your PLAY1 pair for a wireless 2.1 solution that rivals bulky component based systems at significantly higher prices. If home theater is your thing, add a pair of PLAY1s to Sonos PLAYBAR soundbar home theater system for a wireless surround sound solution for your TV viewing. Speaking of PLAYBAR, the popular home theater system recently received a #1 rating from Consumer Reports in the soundbar home theater category.

PLAY1 will be hitting Grand stores on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. In the meantime, check out the product images below or this video to see the PLAY1 for yourself.
