Sonos has been a popular wireless speaker ecosystem for years and they Sonos Play:1 is the company’s cheapest and smallest speaker. While they sound great on their own or as a pair, they really shine when you use them as rear speakers for a home theater system.
To accomplish a true home theater set up, you need to place your Sonos Play:1’s behind your couch or seating area to get the best result, the easiest way to do this is with a speaker stand. Whether you’re looking to finally get that surround sound experience with your Sonos system, or you just love the look and feel of a stand, here are my top picks for stands that work with your Sonos Play:1.
