Line-in.

Plug in any audio device—from your record player to a friend’s phone—and listen to your favourite music on your PLAY:5. You can also send the music from your PLAY:5 to any other Sonos speaker in your home.

Touch controls.

Tap for the volume. Swipe to change the track. Right from the PLAY:5 speaker itself. Perfect for when your phone is in hiding or out of reach.

Multiple orientations.

Stand it tall or set it on its side. Either way, PLAY:5 automatically optimises the sound. When it’s horizontal, it’s in stereo. When it's vertical, it's in mono. The rubber feet on three sides make it safe for any surface.

Humidity resistant.

We built PLAY:5 humidity resistant so you can enjoy your favourite songs in music-starved places like bathrooms and outdoor patios. All you need is WiFi access and a place to plug it in. Just remember, it’s not waterproof or weather resistant.

Play music from Spotify straight to Sonos.

Enjoy all the personalized Spotify playlists and other listening features you love and more - without ever opening your Sonos app.

    Add a SUB



    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.

          I use a Sonos 5 in a single room where I exercise and have a work bench. Clean, crisp sound with plenty of volume and depth. I control the Sonos with my phone and play mainly from Spotify and my phone music library. It was very easy to set up and the controls are intuitive. Very, very happy with it.

            Setup in living room and expanding to all rooms in a few months. Wish there were outdoor speakers as well. Maybe down the road they will come out with then.
