Sonos is thrilled to announce the launch of our latest all-in-one player, the PLAY:3. Available starting today, the PLAY:3 is compact enough to fit almost anywhere you want music at home—even smaller rooms and surfaces. And because versatility is key for tight spaces, we built the PLAY:3 to work both vertically and horizontally.
Of course, just because we’ve designed the PLAY:3 with a diminutive footprint doesn’t mean we left out big Sonos sound. The PLAY:3 features three speakers powered by three dedicated digital amps, so you’ll be able to enjoy the Sonos’s signature HiFi quality. And like the PLAY:5 before it, our newest player also offers Stereo Pair Mode, which means that if you have two in one room, you can designate one as the left channel and the other as the right for even bigger stereo sound.
Additionally, the PLAY:3 offers a unique feature that detects if the unit is positioned vertically or horizontally and then modifies the speaker’s output to ensure clean and balanced audio output. In horizontal mode, you may notice a wider stereo response, while in vertical mode, music may sound brighter on the highs and crisper on the mids.
Adding to the PLAY:3s versatility is an integrated, threaded mounting hole, which allows you to easily mount the player on the wall or under a cabinet using a suitable mounting bracket (sold separately).
With the PLAY:3, Sonos continues to expand on its vision of making it easy for people to fill their homes with all the music on earth, whether it comes from their personal music libraries or one of our many music partners. As with the other products in the Sonos Wireless HiFi System, the PLAY:3 is super simple to set up and connects wirelessly to all other Sonos components. And it can be controlled wirelessly from the comfort of your couch, using any Sonos Controller – including free apps for your Android smartphone, iPhone, or iPad.
Finally, Sonos is introducing the PLAY:3 with an affordable price tag to make it even easier for people to expand existing Sonos systems or start a new one. The PLAY:3 goes on sale today for the following prices (based on region of purchase): $299 USD, $329 CAD, $419 AUD, 299 EUR, 259 GBP, or 2980 CNY. (Starting a new Sonos system?
