Sonos is known for making seriously cool, but seriously pricey, whole-house audio gear. With the Play:1 speaker ($199), it's finally affordable to dip a toe into the Sonos waters. This standalone speaker, controlled by apps on almost any phone or tablet, will stream an endless variety of music: your own library, Internet radio stations, and popular services like Pandora and Spotify. And it's easy to add more Sonos speakers to other rooms of the house.
