Recommendations for wifi speakers please?

I am hoping to buy a wireless speaker in the sales, so that I can stream music from both my smartphone and tablet using Spotify, Youtube and other similar applications. Nothing too fancy, easy to set up and use, and preferably for under £150. Would prefer a wifi speaker (as opposed to Bluetooth), as I understand it’s a better medium for streaming within your home – I’m not bothered about having a portable speaker for outside use.

Not having owned a wireless speaker before, I’m looking for one for which the setup is not too laborious. I’ve devised a shortlist as follows:

Samsung R1 Multiroom 360

Sony SRS HG1

Sonos Play 1

Does anyone have any strong preferences between these three, or indeed, are there any similar speakers which you consider superior to these three? Are there any other considerations I should take into account when looking for one?

Many thanks in anticipation of your replies.
