All in one big room. Thanks very much for the replies!
What works best from these combinations is a matter of personal preference. And on how many rooms the units are spread across.
"Linked" needs clarification. The terms used for Sonos are Group and Pair. You can pair two Play:1 speakers together for a stereo L/R pair, with one playing the Left channel and one the Right. You can group any number of Sonos speakers to play in perfect sync, with each speaker (or pair) playing both L/R channels. Pairing is semi-permanent and meant to stay that way, grouping is temporary and speakers are easily grouped and ungrouped.

So for 4 Play:1s all playing the same source, you can:

Have two paired, then grouped.
Have two paired, then grouped with two singles.
Have 4 singles, all grouped.
