Comment:
Brought it home and had the whole network set up in under half an hour. From box to full home sound system in 30 minutes! No hitches since. The quality is great. I have three sonos 1 and one sonos 5. All are wonderful. You can move them around for stereo, and they 'tree' off each other, so tough to get out of range. Totally can go in the backyard with them, as long as you have a power source.<br /> You can stream almost anything, and different speakers can stream different things. I can listen to google play music in my office while my wife can stream pandora in the bedroom. Complete customization, where we can mix and match speakers with what stream we want. All four can do one stream, or different streams from each speaker. <br /> Only minuses: the price, portability and the app. Its a little pricey relative to a jam box, but so, so worth it; you also have to have it plugged in at all times. You can't stream directly off of your phone, which is meh, because I have everything on google play cloud. If you dont have a cloud, you are going to need one for your music. <br /> The App is wonky, but simple. It takes a couple of taps to get to your song, and will conk out and not finish an album if you click on one song. You have to play the album, skip around, then get it to play. Playlists solve all of these issues, but you have to do it their way. <br /> Such minor issues for such a great, great system. Actually got the third sonos 1 two days later because we liked the system so much, and wanted one for the bedroom.

Comment:
This unit functions exactly as all consumer electronics should. I purchased this Sonos Play 1 and a Bridge Unit. Exactly 4 minutes elapsed from the time I opened the boxes until both units were connected, functional and playing music. SOOOO simple. Couldn't have gone any smoother!<br />The iPhone app is free and incredibly intuitive. Nothing to improve here. Connecting my spotify account and streaming spotify audio was dead simple. I was floored. <br />I am a professional audio engineer and the sound quality is wonderful. You can even cut or boost bass and treble frequencies separately. This unit is surprisingly loud with no audible distortion at high volumes. Well done here. <br />The only negative point I have found is that I can't play Netflix audio via Bluetooth. Hopefully this will be possibly through future updates.
