I’m finally ready to start unplugging old amps and getting rid of all these cords everywhere. I’m far from an audiophile but have been underwhelmed by my wife’s Bose Bluetooth “smart” speaker so I’m trying to calibrate expectations.
I think I want to start with my office which is currently just a pair of B&W 600 S3s (no sub) run off of an old Harmon Kardon receiver. How would a pair of Play 1s compare to this setup acoustically with the highest quality streams from Spotify? J
A pair of Play 5s would probably be overkill for this space but I certainly don’t want to downgrade an already modest setup. I’m also worried about the living room which is next where my wife wants small speakers that are “modern” and I’m worried the play 5’s might be too large for her although I can probably hide a sub somewhere if needed if she’s ok with Play 1s in the visible area.

Hi. The Play1s are more or less discontinued now, so you should probably be looking at a pair of Sonos One SLs if voice control is of no interest to you, or a One and a One SL if you do want voice control.
I don't know the speakers you refer to but I think you will find the sound of the Ones impressive for their size. But it is frankly irrelevant what I or others think. Buy from Sonos and use the long no quibble return period to let your own ears decide.
