Agreed. Two 1’s better than a 3, but two 3’s, that’s another story :)
The general consensus is that two paired 1’s are better than a 3. All are great as a single speaker in each room, which one you pick depends on the size of the room really.
Maybe volume but I got one the other day and the bass is far better than a play 1. Depends what you are looking for and the price you wish to pay
Currys are useless!
Play 1 is a better buy IMO. Smaller, looks nicer and similar volume output.
