Sonos’s wireless network is one of the best around, so you are unlikely to encounter too many issues with the wi-fi route. Pair two PLAY:1 units for amazing stereo sound, or use two PLAY:1s as rear speakers with PLAYBAR and a Sonos SUB™ to create 5.1 home theater sound for your TV.
Sonos One SL: The Ultimate Wireless Bookshelf Speaker | Sonos
The One isn’t the only way to add voice Alexa to a Sonos system either – you can add an Echo or Echo Dot to your multi-room system, which brings with it the ability to send music to your Sonos speakers. That’s not as neat, though, as you need to specify which room or speaker you want to listen on. A system comprised of Sonos Ones, on the other hand, will respond based on proximity – unless you instruct otherwise. VerdictSonos was created upon the belief you should never have to choose between quality sound and an easy way to access all your music at home," said John MacFarlane, CEO, Sonos, Inc. "The PLAY:1 makes getting started with Sonos even more accessible to music lovers than ever before."

One thing not mentioned is that Sonos One supports 24bit from Qobuz, but Play:1 apparently doesn't.While the price difference between the Sonos One and Sonos One SL is negligible, for those who see no benefit in speaking to their speaker, the SL is a viable proposition. The sonic performance, streaming options and app-support are among the best we’ve tested at this level. But for compact convenience and quality on a budget, the clever little One still comes highly recommended as an ideal, great-value entrance into the Sonos ecosystem.
Sonos Play:1 review | What Hi-Fi?
We prefer the sound with the Loudness setting left on, but experiment to discover which combination works best for you and your room. We set it up the way we like, and get a delivery that’s weighty, full-bodied and loud – not traits you’d generally expect from a wireless speaker of this size. The soundstage is spacious and impressively organised, with vocals given plenty of breathing room, making them instantly more engaging.The additions of SoundCloud and Google Play Music have perhaps been the biggest wins, while the support for multiple Spotify accounts is another welcome addition. There are still limitations - it doesn't officially support iTunes Radio or AirPlay streaming - but the list of supported services is much more comprehensive than it was in 2013.
