Comment:
Downsized my house and used to have in ceiling speakers. Put one of these in my ensuite to listen to the radio in the morning. Speakers are humidity resistant (not waterproof or water-resistant). Sonos website specifically says it can be placed in a bathroom with a warm shower. Also place one on my main floor. Connected an iPad, iPod, Android phone and home computer to the speakers.

Comment:
Got a deal for two of these, so sound is better. Upgraded app now supports Apple Music (though I went with Deezer as they have a deal with Sonos). I am considering getting a pair of Sonos 5s for the room the 1s are in now and move the 1s to other rooms.

Comment:
Sonos produces a very solid lineup of speakers. They are easy to setup and configure with their Android/IOS app. The combiniation of configurations are almost limitless. It is easy to pair speakers to produce stereo sound, play different content in different rooms and group speakers to play the same content to any (or all) speakers. <br /><br />They are functional, but not great for surround systems. The Playbar, Sub and rear speakers produce really good surround sound. However, since the sound source is the optical output from your TV, Dolby Digital is not possible. In addition, Individual speakers cannot be configured for a home theatre setup without the playbar. As a result, you are limited by stereo separation of thee playbar. In addition, Sonos does not support a 7.1 configuration. <br /><br />I am not quite sure what problem a previous reviewer had with router configuration, but routers treat Sonos speakers as simply another connected wifi device.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
