    Add a SUB.

    Wirelessly connect SUB to your PLAY:5—single or stereo pair—for dramatically deeper bass. Since your PLAY:5s don’t have to handle the bass anymore, they can focus on producing better mid-range and high frequencies.

Best Uses

Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

Main issue is that wireless internet connectivity is done via an outdated system that does not connect as easily as my iPhone and iPad in the same location, and the connection is weak even when established. I wasted many hours in setup including some discussion with helpful customer service staff but in the end the main issue was poor wireless connectivity. The wireless connectivity needs to be updated to more modern standards.

    Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

    I purchased this system after falling in love when listening to it in my local Richer Sounds store. The bass is deep and the mids and treble are clear as can be. This machine packs much more than you can even imagine for its compact size. Also I think Yodel will have trouble breaking this with how well it's packaged. All in all I would highly recommend.

        Extremely impressed with the sound and ease of setup.
        The great benefit of the Play 5 is the phono socket, I'm able to connect to my tv as sound bar, plus the wifi streaming. The choice of streaming music, radio, etc., is amazing. Great buy, great quality.

          I use the pair of play 5's as my main music system and occasionally group it with the awesome Sub, however the 5's have great bass so the sub is on special occasions love the sound as it's slightly on the warmer side of neutral which suits me better.
