Sonos made its name with cool-but-pricey devices for streaming music to multiple rooms in a home. The petite Play:3 brings that coolness to a cheaper device that can fill a single room with music (or serve as a component for a full-house music system). It can play music stored on your home network, but what makes it a standout is its direct support for a bevy of music services: Pandora, Rdio, Rhapsody, Spotify and many more. And you can use an iPhone, iPad or Android phone to control it all from the comfort of your Barcalounger.
