Knock your socks off sound.

Attention obsessive audiophiles and hard-core music lovers. PLAY:5 is your speaker. It’s our biggest and best-sounding. So whether you’ve got a big room to fill with music or a discerning ear for divine sound, we’ve got you covered.


Set up over Wifi.

Plug in. Connect. Stream without interruptions or interference.

Start in any room. Add on.

Play different songs in different rooms. Or the same song everywhere.

Control with one app.

Pick a room. Pick a song. Hit play.

Never obsolete.

Software updates mean the product you buy today will be even better tomorrow.


Superior stereo sound.

You’ll hear each separate instrument, voice, and sonic detail in all its glory. Six Class-D amplifiers with six dedicated speaker drivers deliver crystal clear, rich, deep, stereophonic sound with zero distortion. So go ahead and crank up the volume.

Bass response.

Thanks to three mighty woofers and a completely sealed architecture, PLAY:5 delivers big, precise bass response without reverb or echoes.

One app. Complete music control.

The Sonos app helps you quickly search through all your services to track down favourite music, send it to different rooms, and adjust the volume and other settings. You don’t even have to be in the same room. And if your friends have the Sonos app, they can do the same.

Check out the app

Over 30 music streaming services available.

Sonos plays everything–the most popular streaming services, on-demand services, Internet radio, your favourite podcasts and audiobooks, your go-to collection of downloads­–whatever you love to listen to.

Trueplay, custom speaker-tuning for your PLAY:5.

Sonos uses Trueplay tuning to make sure you get the very best sound out of your PLAY:5. No matter where you put it.

Learn more about Trueplay.

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.


Hardware features

Over 60,000 hole-grille.

We designed PLAY:5's grille to contain thousands of microscopic holes. Giving you the most transparent sound without interference.

    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.

          Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

          Had to replace the hi if floor standing speaker due to the chance of them being knock over by the grand children, but wanting to keep a quality hi if sound.
          At first before buying the songs I was very sceptic leg of how these speakers could ever sound as good as hi if speakers.
          After all the researching and testing in the shops and outlets I eventually took the plunge and bought 2 x sonos 5 speakers and set them up as a dedicated hi if pairing (one of the setup options) from that moment onwards I knew I had made the correct choice.
          These are fantastic sounding speakers the sources are my existing hi if components including the linn turntable but now I also stream music using deezer which has opened up a whole new world of playlists of my own and also trying the reccomandations from deeper.
          In summary I know what you are going through, are they worth the money ? Do they sound any good ?
          My thoughts / recommendation just go and buy them, you will not regret it, ever.
