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 with any room. Add on later.

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 your favourite music, play it and adjust the volume in different rooms throughout the home. You don’t even have to be in the same room as a speaker. 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—whether it’s a record player or 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 on 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.


Hardware features

Grille with over 60,000 holes.

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

      Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

      As a man in my mid 40's - I have rode the waves of technological revolution. First records. Then audio tapes. Then CVs. Then a mini disc player (that may have been the most convoluted and foolish choices I have made), many I products and so the dance has continued. So its with great confidence that I say that the Sonos music system is absolutely the last bit of audio tech I will ever need. I mean the sound that comes out of my dual Play 5's in the open plan living area and the ability to tap that into my Play 1 in the office - outstanding. I can never seen them been surpassed.

          Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

          I use the speakers to listen to the radio in the mornings and to play music during the/day when I'm home.
          It's great to be able to listen to the same music when going upstairs especially if listening to live radio if you don't want to miss something by going to different rooms.
          I've got to play 5 in living room to act as stereo pair and one 3 in bedroom.
