Sonos play 3. HIFI Wireless WiFi Speaker
Serious room-filling power. Three speaker drivers powered by three dedicated digital amplifiers.
The PLAY:3 uses three state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with three speaker drivers to deliver great sound to any room. The wireless music system provides pure, clean sound that is perfect for bringing room filling music to a kitchen, bedroom, office, or just about any room in your home. A bass radiator produces powerful low notes while two mid-range drivers and one tweeter fills out the sound.
State of the art, great sounding amplifiers that are light-weight, powerful and very energy-efficient in standby and use.
One tweeter creates a crisp and accurate high-frequency response.
Two dedicated mid-range drivers ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments.
A bass radiator is tuned to use the energised air volume inside of PLAY:3 to provide deep, clean and surprisingly powerful bass from such a small package.
Turn two PLAY:3s into separate left and right channel speakers to create wider, bigger, and deeper sound.
