Sonos Play:3 review | TechRadar
One of the most beautiful parts of the Sonos surround sound speaker system is that it comes with an App and can be remotely controlled from your Wi-Fi enabled phone or computer.It has Apple AirPlay 2, but no Bluetooth, and TruePlay calibration but only for iOS devices. No mics means no voice controls, though if you pair it with another mic-enabled Sonos speaker you can control it by speaking.

But, not all Sonos speakers were designed for the same purpose. While this might seem frustrating for someone who is new to the audio streaming world, this is the beauty that comes with the complexity of sound. When the Era 300 first leaked, rumours abounded that it would replace the Five as Sonos's top-of-the-range smart speaker. That didn't happen – the Five remains Sonos's biggest speaker, and it's still a decent option if spatial audio isn't a deal-breaker. It's loud, detailed and forthright, and of course fits seamlessly into your Sonos set-up.Now, when you invite your friends over for a thrilling movie night, you can know confidently that you are in for an audio thrill ride as your speakers will work their magic.
