Something simple for the kitchen

Aloha gents and ladies! I don't currently have any Sonos products, but I love the concept!
So, I was wondering if the great community here have an idea or suggestions to the best speaker/setup to get for my kitchen (first room I enter in my house)?
Something simple that I can later extend into my livingroom (open to the kitchen) would be awesome!

Cheers! 🙂

A stereo pair of Play:1s or Play:3s would work well and should fill the room. Then you can add another two in the living room if you like, but i can imagine that they will fill the room anyway.

Yes. Flexson and Cavus both sell quality wall brackets for Play:1s, Play:3s and other SONOS products

I would also add that you may want to either plug in one of your speakers to your router or get a Boost. The is the best set up for future expansion.

No problem 😉
I suggest using a play 1 unit as an entry point, AND as a unit of expansion in future. It is the most flexible, value for money and capable Sonos speaker today, allowing for a building block approach for whole house coverage in phases.

Use just one unit to get going and for audio, it can be expanded in time to a play 1 pair + Sonos Sub combination that can give a living room hifi set up a run for the money. Even a set up that costs a lot more than what a 1 pair+ Sub would.

In between these two ends of the spectrum there are lots of options that standardising on a play 1 opens up.

The only downside is no line in jacks, if you want to plug in a turntable or the like.

That sounds like an excellent idea as well, Kumar! I'll have a chat with the SO to see what he says 😃
