Three speakers powered by three dedicated digital amplifiers The PLAY:3 uses three state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with three speakers to deliver great sound to any room. The wireless music system provides pure, clean sound that is perfect for bringing room filling music to a kitchen, bedroom, office, or just about any room in your home. A bass radiator produces powerful low notes while two mid-range drivers and one tweeter fills out the sound.
Class-D amplifiers State of the art, great sounding amplifiers that are light-weight, powerful and very energy-efficient in standby and use.
Tweeter One tweeter creates a crisp and accurate high-frequency response.
Mid-range drivers Two dedicated mid-range drivers ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments.
Bass radiator A bass radiator is tuned to use the energised air volume inside of PLAY:3 to provide deep, clean and surprisingly powerful bass from such a small package.
Stereo Pair Turn two PLAY:3s into separate left and right channel speakers to create wider, bigger, and deeper sound.
5.1 Home Theatre Add two PLAY:3 speakers to PLAYBAR and SUB for a true surround sound experience.
All-digital sound architecture All filter settings, active equalisation, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry so there's absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.
Adjustable bass and treble controls Optimise sound performance using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms
Trueplay tuning. Trueplay measures the acoustics in any room – analyzing things like size, layout and furnishings. Then fine-tunes your PLAY:3 to make the music sound great, no matter where you place your speaker.
