Many peo­ple nowa­days have their mu­sic col­lec­tion spread over sev­eral de­vices. Sonos has come up with the Play:1 speaker sys­tem, which acts as a cen­tral hub for it all. Con­trol­lable from an app (An­droid or iOS) or us­ing the but­tons on the unit it­self, you can ac­cess more than 100,000 In­ter­net ra­dio sta­tions as well as any mu­sic stored on your home net­work, such as your lap­top’s iTunes li­brary. The sound is in­cred­i­bly rich for a rel­a­tively small de­vice (4.7 in x 4.7 in x 6.3 in, weigh­ing 4 lbs), its build qual­ity is ex­cel­lent and the app is well de­signed and in­tu­itive. One thing you should bear in mind – if this is your only piece of Sonos gear, you will need to buy a Sonos Bridge ($49) to avoid hav­ing to wire the speaker di­rectly into your home WiFi router.
