Got a Sonos Play:1

I finally went out and spent the money on a great speaker for my office. I am impressed the sound quality is great and very easy to use and honestly it might just be me but I don’t miss having an echo in my office I guess cause when I am in there there no need for voice command. I have my phone in my hand anyway and when I am in my office I don’t need to worry about yelling to Alexa to play a song.

Any tips / information / suggestions for a first time sonos owner?

    <p>Congrats on the new Sonos speaker! We have three of them (two Play 1s and a SoundBar) and I think they're great! </p><p><br></p><p>One thing to note is that you should be able to "tune" the speaker so that it provides the best sound based on the acoustics of the room it's in. (The speaker will emit some tones and will have you walk around the room with your phone so that it can determine the room's acoustics.)</p><p><br></p><p>It's been a while, but I believe you will be prompted to do this when you first go to set the speaker up. If you haven't done so already, it might be worth a try.</p>

    <p>Welcome to my crack.</p><p><br></p><p>My only real suggestion is that if you use spotify is to setup the Play 1 as a target and use that app…other than that, enjoy! </p>
