The new audio device from Sonos may not be a portable speaker, but it is the next best thing, assuming you don't prefer multi-speaker systems over everything else.Called SONOS PLAY:1, the newcomer is a wireless HiFi speaker, where HiFi stands for high fidelity.
It should be up for sale at $199 / €199, and a free Wi-Fi Bridge should ship with it, for a limited time this holiday season. Normally, that bridge would need an extra $49 / €49.
Owners of the Sonos Play:1 will be able to stream from PCs, Macs, phones and tablets.
They can even combine more than one speaker to create a multi-room speaker system. Pairing two Play:1 units can enable high-quality stereo, and you can even use them as rear speakers when combined with a Playbar and a SONOS SUB. So I guess even lovers of 5.1 home theater sound can buy them without worry.
