    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.

Sonos has phenomenal sound I love how quickly and easily I can have music playing. I also love that other people can control and change the music or edit the queue. Being forced to use the app has advantages, but it makes finding music more difficult.

    I LOVE my Sonos. Recently bought (4) Play 5. These fill my house with music. Just one does the trick for a large room. I love the fact, you can easily add to the system. Will be adding more at some point, they are a bit pricey! But, well worth it! The set up was incredibly easy!!!

      Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

      The Sonos Play 5 is built like a tank yet sounds so precise regardless of the type of music I play through it. The bass is tight and highs oh so beautiful and it is hard to understand how such an amazing sound can come from such a small footprint. I've now added a Play 5 to my Master Bedroom and another in the Man Cave! We also have several Play 1's throughout the house helping to provide an awesome music listening experience. Expensive but you truly get what you pay for. A friend of mine owns the Polk wireless system and wishes they would have paid more to get the quality of Sonos!

        Absolutely love this. Please trust me when I say I tried various products around the same price bracket and this is not only by far the best within that range, it is a great speaker on its own. The sound is powerful, clear and crisp, with excellent bass for those beat enthusiasts. I absolutely love this purchase!
