Sonos announced its new PLAY:3, a compact all-in-one wireless streaming media HiFi system designed to “stream all the music on the earth wirelessly in any room.” The speaker packs three Class-D digital amplifiers and three drivers – one tweeter and two 3″ mid-range to provide clear wall-to-wall sound. There is also one passive, rear-firing bass radiator for rich sound.
The PLAY:3 is internet-connected offering access to over 100,000 internet ratio station, shows and podcasts online. It can play your entire music library stored on any computer or Network Attached storage (NAS), such as an Apple Time Capsule. The cabinet also works with popular music streaming services to provide access to millions of songs and stations from AUPEO, iheartradio, Last.fm, MOG, Napster, Pandora, Rdio, Rhapsody, SiriusXM Internet Radio, Spotify, Stitcher SmartRadio, TuneIn, Wolfgang’s Vault, and more.
The Sonos PLAY:3 is easy to expand, bringing wireless music to all your rooms; and is compatible with all other Sonos products. One Sonos player or SONOS BRIDGE (sold separately) must be connected to your router, then all other Sonos players will work wirelessly. Users may also want to have stereo pairing by place two PLAY:3s in the same room and enjoy even bigger sound with each playing a dedicated Left or Right channel. The wireless HiFi supports wireless control using free Sonos Controller Apps for Android, iPhone and iPad. There is also free Sonos Controller for Mac and PC.
The Sonos PLAY:3 is available for $299.
