Warn your neighbours if ordering! love mine

Wow, want some play 1s to go with this.

What a price!

These things are ridiculously loud though, I'm serious. Don't buy if you have immediate neighbours.

Planning on connecting these with a couple of Play 1's in my bedroom upstairs. Anyone have it connected as such? How's the quality?

Oh and does anyone know whether these can be connected to a TV as well, or would we need the PlayBar for the connections?

Neighbours on either side, with one family rather grumpy most of the times. However, I couldn't resist at this price.

I'm pretty much sure you can connect them, I have 2 play ones and it's all made to connect together, it's a really simple set up

Is their any customs duty to pay?

Brave!

And to the question about with Play 1s/Playbar...it's very easy.

If you can try set up with stereo Play 1s and a Playbar for a superb 5.1 set up.

I'm testing the new Beta App and Sonos are making it even easier than before.

Play 1s are good with the SUB as the Play 1s can then focus on the high frequencies as the SUB looks after the base. This also applies to the Playbar.

Using Play 3/5s is also good but I feel it's a waste and slight overkill unless you have a huge room to fill.

I personally think 3s & 5s should be stand alones and Play 1s paired up with Playbars/SUBS.

No, both the UK and Italy are part of the EU.

Yes, no need for a playbar. Flexson do decent mounts,

Got a couple of Play 1's for exactly this purpose. I thought I'd be buying into a 5.1 Sonos package over time, and thought it'd be wasteful to go for Play 3 or 5's. I reckon the Play 1's will do just as well in a 5.1 set up (considering the low frequencies will handled pretty much exclusively by the sub!)

So I guess it's time to splurge out for a PlayBar as well? Ah well, I knew it was coming. X)

How's the beta application? Can I sign up for it as well to test it?

No, what I meant was physical wiring connection. Not mounting. X)

As in, how would one connect these to the TV, so that TV audio comes out from them?

Jeebus... a £433 subwoofer? what is it made of, solid gold?

Pardon my ignorance but why are the sonos devices so highly regarded and pricey compared to competition? Is it comparable to Apple products in that it you pay for the brand name in part or am I missing something?

I have tested and listened to several Sonos systems but they have never sounded much better than systems half the price with similar functionality from my experience.

Tell us what is a better overall setup please?

"never sound much better than systems half the price with similar functionality from my experience"

Please elucidate further by providing more information. I personally don't think there is anything in the marketplace that can touch the sound quality of the Sonos speakers considering the added functionality of being completely wireless as well.

Yeah go for it, the sound is incredible playing games or watching blurays through a Sonos 5.1. The bass is unreal!

Can't disclose anything about the new app due to NDA agreement but it's good! Just ironing out the bugs just now really.

Sorry, need sleep! As for beta testing the app, it's not an exclusive club, log on and sign up, I've been on the programme for over a year, lots of regular updates to the app

Yeah anyone can sign up for the Beta app.

Will a sonos speakers play my playlists etc created and stored on an iPad using the inbuilt Apple Music App that is used with / syncs with iTunes? Don't want to run songs from a PC or NAS, just an iPod or IPad.

Sorry for the late response. Yep, it worked just fine. You need to buy either an adaptor for converting EU plug to UK plug, or you can buy the cable from Sonos for a fiver.
