nice find op, heat
Up to 289.99
I can only see it as £299?
Great if you like overpriced speakers, no bluetooth and at 2.5kg not very portable either.

Just get yourself a nice pair of wired ones for much less, i mean is it REALLY that hard to walk over to a speaker and plug it in?

​have you heard them ? the sound is terrific for such small speakers. very easy to move around too
Don't be so sure. I understand the Play 1 is the newest of the line up. The Play 5 has just had a complete revamp but that was only after many years.

Most of Sonos's changes come through the software updates rather than hardware.

I think True Play has given a new lease of life to the whole range.
Offer now withdrawn, it was a glitch and shouldn't have been advertised at that price

Sorry, I must have missed where they said it was a portable speaker over a compact streaming speaker.

It isn't hard to plug it in but it is hard to have syncronised audio throughout the house and the garage. I don't know of a simpler system to do this than sonos that involved 'just plugging in a pair of speakers'....into what?

​it's not just about the speaker, the whole sonos ecosystem and software just works....very reliable and that's why Sonos is the Apple of multiroom speaker systems....overpriced? probably....but like Apple the resale value is very good, just sold a previous model play 5 to upgrade to latest play 5 and sold for around 80% of price I paid.....

i think you're completely missing the point of these.

Fairly simple to add airplay if (and these may be complete deal breakers rather than if's) your moderately tech savvy and have a mac or PC you leave running. See here, github.com/ste…nos

Been using it for a while and it works well.

but what's the point in paying for a premium product with all the bells and whistles then hacking a solution to a problem that shouldn't be there in the first place? other manufactures can add Airplay e.g Sony, Pioneer, etc.why cant Sonos.

Fair point.

I can see from a product point of view why they don't want to, they want to provide an alternative way of managing your music by brining it all together under one app. Why pay apple a licence fee for AirPlay and break that fundamental tenant of your offering. They claim AirPlay support via the Aux in on the Connect, connect amp and play 5. Again something that's managed through their app.

That said from a consumer POV I totally want them to support AirPlay, to the extent I chose to hack it in myself. I just happen to like the way the play one looks and sounds so that's why I got one.

Very much doubt they'll do anything with the Play:1, its not been out long enough and the new Play:5 uses the same generation drivers that are in the 1. The Play:3 however is a great contender for a revamp (especially as 2 Play:1's paired sound better and can be had for similar money)

The trouble is their app doesn't support Apple Music or in my case, iTunes Match and I cant see Apple allowing them to link those services into the Sonos app therefore you'd think Airplay was the logical way to go.

A beta starting in 2 weeks is a start I suppose, still no mention of iTunes Match though. I'm in the process of planning a project and have opted for a Pioneer AV amp with multizone, shame Sonos cant even be on my shortlist.

Nah, they're just trolling another sonos thread.
