I just set mine up a couple hours ago. My current setup:
Play3: Living Room
2 x Play3 Left & Right Pair: Master Bedroom
Sonos Move - for deck time
I was HOPING this speaker would come close to the Play3 given the price. (I've never heard what a Play1 sounds like). I didn't think it would come close to a Play3 based on listening to the Youtubers trying to give sound comparisons through my own crappy computer speakers.
Wow! These actually sound BETTER than my Play3's. I know audio is very subjective but I think I like the Move better than my Play3's. The "power" and "clarity" seem to be better on the Move than compared to my Play3's. But my Play3's seem to have a bit more "depth" to the audio. Hope that makes sense. When comparing to my Play5, I think the Move is closer to the Play5 than it is to the Play3 in my honest opinion. The Play5 does have more power, more clarity and more depth than the Move. But for $400, the Move is a pleasant surprise that I was hoping for but expecting much less.
Initial Problems I expect to be fixed over the next week or 2:
(1) The Move alexa mic isn't working at all. I've gone through all the basic fixes (reconnect sonos/alexa in the app, ensure the mic was on with a white light confirmation, and ensuring I'm on wifi with a top white light confirmation and not a blue light (bluetooth connection).
(2) When playing the Move and then trying to add another speaker so they're playing at the same time (not Left/Right pair) it seems to sputter and music turns off...whether it's for 2 seconds, 10 seconds, or for good. This problem doesn't doesn't matter which speaker I use first when trying to add to another. Sometimes it stops all together even though the track time on the app continues counting. Weird.
What's your experience the first time you heard the Sonos Move?
