Sonos Releases the Play:3 Wireless Speaker

Posted Fri Jul 22, 2011 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

It's a nice cheap way to get on board with wireless music systems.

Wireless music systems have traditionally been the stuff of luxury. Not for the super-rich of course, but shelling out a grand or so just to enjoy your music in other rooms isn't exactly high on most priority lists.

Sonos has been moving the prices down on their wireless music systems and has reached a new level of affordability with the Play:3. It's a compact speaker that boasts three drivers, three Class-D amplifiers and a passive rear-firing bass radiator and it comes in at $299.

Using the Play:3 and the $49 Bridge, you can enjoy your music collection from anywhere in the house. Of course, you're not limited to music stored on your PC - you can grab tracks from Spotify, stream music from Pandora or listen to one of the seemingly limitless internet radio stations.

In addition to launching the Play:3, Sonos has updated their software with some improvements to the interface and compatibility with Android phones.
