Sonos has added a new player to its lineup, one that is smaller and less expensive than its other models. The Sonos Play:3 is an all-in-one music streaming device. Similar to the Sonos S5 (renamed the Play:5), it has a built-in amplifier and speakers and can stream music from your computers as well as online streaming music partners--Napster, Rhapsody, Spotify, Mog, and more.
Smaller than the Play:5 model that is, about the size of an old boombox, the Sonos Play:3 can fit on a bedside table. Wherever you put the Play:3, it can modify its speaker output using internal sensors to optimize the sound for vertical or horizontal placement.
Like the Play:5, the Play:3 can be paired with a second Play:3 to create a dedicated left and right channel for stereo in your room. While you can use the Play:5 to create a Sonos network by keeping it connected to your router, the Play:3 requires a ZoneBridge be connected so you can access computers, the internet and other Sonos devices.
Price for ZoneBridge Is Reduced
Along with offering the lower-priced Play:3, Sonos is making its whole system more affordable by lowering the price of the ZoneBridge from $99 to $49.
