Sonos Play :3 Compact Tunes


Sonos Play :3 (named for its 3 internal speakers) is a compact music player that conveniently hooks up via app to iPad, iPhone and Android devices. Connect with iTunes, Internet radio, Spotify, Sirius and almost any other music source. A second Play:3 can be attached in another room or, if you already have Sonos products, it can be conveniently synced. Versatile enough to work both vertically and horizontally, the company promises "wall-to-wall HiFi sound."

With simple setup and instant on when you pick it up, it features a rapid intuitive search by song, artist, or radio station when typed in. Dedicated mute, volume and zone buttons make control even easier.

Take the CR200 throughout the house or outside with its convenient transflective screen. You can alter the volume in different rooms from the same unit and it comes with a lithium ion battery that is good for 5 days of use and can be easily replaced. The company has also updated its Software 3.0 for use with the CR200 or iPhone controller. There is now one-touch access to such info as concert listings, artist bios, album reviews and more.


The controller comes with its own charging cradle at a price of $349 and is compatible with other Sonos Multi-Room Music System hardware. If you haven't found the joys of the music system, the Sonos BU250 Bundle comes with the ZonePlayer 90 and the ZonePlayer 120.
