To design and construct a speaker to fit in all of the components needed to both produce good sound and seamlessly knit into Sonos' proprietary wireless mesh required a team of almost 60 people. John Macfarlane, Sonos' CEO, says that the Play:1 was the most technically difficult model to build - its small footprint (120 x 120 x 160mm) required significant engineering to deal with wireless interference and keep things acoustically optimized. And the result of their two years of hard work. A pretty damn good speaker.
We were happy with the Play:3, Sub and Playbar, and we can report that the Play:1 is another quality Sonos.
