Sonos Play3 gets unintentional early reveal

Sonos' plans for its Play:3 network radio were mostly given away Monday after the discovery of a brief Amazon listing (cached). While it didn't settle the name, the post confirmed that it would be a shrunk version of the ZonePlayer S5 with three drivers, two of which would be mid-range while the third would be a tweeter for the high range. Deep bass may still be a selling point with a bass radiator to push the low end.

As with the S5, going wireless will need a ZoneBridge to get on Sonos' proprietary low-interference network, but Ethernet will be an option for a direct link. All of the software features should remain intact, including both the full Internet radio streaming, local network sharing, and streaming services such as MOG and Spotify. Android, iPad, and iPhone users can steer it along with the regular Sonos controller.

Amazon didn't give any surefire clues as to release dates but put the price at $299, or $100 less than the five-driver S5. [via Engadget]
