Hear it just like they played it. Pure and true.

  • Six speaker drivers powered by six dedicated digital amplifiers

    The PLAY:5 uses six state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with six speaker drivers to deliver great sound to any room. Each instrument, each voice, every detail shines through, pure and precise. With remarkably distinct clarity. And zero audible distortion. Even when you crank it up loud. Really loud.

  • Class-D amplifiers

    State of the art, great sounding amplifiers that are light weight, powerful and very energy-efficient in standby and use.

  • Tweeters

    Three tweeters create a crisp and accurate high-frequency response.

  • Mid-woofers

    Three dedicated mid-woofers ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments, while also delivering a deep, rich bass.

  • Stereo Pair

    Turn two PLAY:5s into separate left and right channel speakers to create wider, bigger, and deeper sound.

  • 5.1 Home Cinema

    Add two PLAY:5 speakers to a PLAYBAR and SUB for a true surround sound experience.

  • All-digital sound architecture

    All filter settings, active equalisation, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry so there's absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.

  • Adjustable bass and treble controls

    Optimise sound performance using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms

  • Trueplay tuning.

    Trueplay measures the acoustics in any room – analyzing things like size, layout and furnishings. Then fine-tunes your PLAY:5 to make the music sound great, no matter where you place your speaker.

      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.

              Wireless is super reliable, it has never cut out or lost sound like I have experienced with bluetooth.

              The sound quality is absolutely outstanding! From the deepest bass to all the way to a high treble it offers such an amazing sound! Love it!

                    Great speaker all round. It was a tad tricky setting up as every time we "sound tested" and moved the device around the room as instructed, it failed time and time again. That said we got through it - set it up and away we went. Great sound.

                        Great system for parties. Friends are able to download the app and you can listen to their sounds as well.

                            I have never had a product that could be set up as quickly as this. The first speaker took less than a minute and additional speakers bought later were add just as quickly. I use Deezer (also superb) and the apps that I added on different devices pick up changes immediately. Sound quality very good and as we live in a rural location we have poor radio reception and via Tunein radio I can now get superb radio broadcasts.

                              After using a NAD Visio 1 for the past 3 years, I was sceptical that the Play 5 would even compete. I was wrong. Very wrong.

                              From the moment I set the two Play 5's up as a stereo pair, I couldn't stop smiling. I tested all the main contenders for sound: Hey Nineteen, Get Lucky, Brass Monkey and the sound was immense. It was hard to accept that these are consumer speakers; they sound that good.

                              I would advise anyone to buy these. It's that simple.

                                    I bought this as ex display from JL. I know for a fact that when demonstrating their speakers, JL staff put a punchy baseline on and turn the volume way up. But with its reputation and rave reviews, even with daily demo's like this, I would have expected the Sonos to cope with its own power/volume levels. But unfortunately I got it home, set it up (which was really quite fun and easy by the way), and found that the base sounded terrible! One/some of the speakers had obviously 'blown' so I had to take it back. This doesn't give me confidence to buy a new one at full price which I was more than prepared to do in the first place had I not chanced upon it at ex-display price.

                                      Technology has moved on since the record player in my youth! This is so easy to use and extremely convenient as I can easily and quickly play music on it from my iPhone. I am not the most technically worldly wise but this is easy, even for me. The sound is superb. I will never be able to use it at its full loudness potential unfortunately due to neighbours!

                                          Having access to pretty much every album there is means that I am listening to old favourites that I haven't played for years and discovering new albums that I never got round to buying. Easy to use either for listening to a specific artist/album or creating a mixed playlist for background music.

                                          It is frustrating that the platform for both Spotify and iTunes looks and feels different through Sonos app. There is loss of functionality which could be avoided...

                                            I do love my sonos player.. and hope to expand to other rooms at some stage, but they are expensive!
                                            If they were a bit cheaper, I'd set them up around the house!
                                            The sound quality is fab, I just don't like its pickiness around apps! I want to play what I want, when I want, and build whatever setlist I like!

                                            Great look, great sound, true play set took at least 3 weeks of trying. The play 5 gets confused by different controllers and won't load from one source as it thinks another iPod is playing when it is actually shut down. Remedy is switch it off and on again.

                                                We can't use sonos at all. Everytime we use Sonos it either just randomly skips to the next song, cutting off songs half way through. Our internet has never had issues and normally we use Spotify. However we cannot use spotify or soundcloud through sonos due to unreliability.

                                                Questions?

                                                1. Do I need a BOOST?

                                                  Use a BOOST if you’re worried about your home WiFi performance.

                                                  Connecting a Sonos unit to your router with an Ethernet cable automatically creates a dedicated Sonos wireless network. Any player or a BOOST can make this hard-wired connection. A dedicated Sonos network is ideal when your WiFi isn’t reliable in your home.

                                                2. Where does the music come from?

                                                  The music on Sonos comes from your favourite music streaming services, your personal music library and Internet radio stations from around the world. Access all your music within the Main Menu of the Sonos App.

                                                3. Do you make an outdoor speaker?

                                                  No, but they're all light and portable. As long as there's an outlet, you've got Sonos. The speaker units that we sell, the PLAY:1, PLAY:3 and PLAY:5, are not weather-rated. They can certainly be moved outside, but they are not designed to live outside unless they are in a covered space. If you are looking for a permanent outdoor zone of music, you can use our CONNECT:AMP unit with traditional weather-rated speakers.

                                                4. Will Sonos work with my existing equipment?

                                                  Already have a Stereo? Use the CONNECT.

                                                  The CONNECT is designed specifically to integrate with an external amplifier/receiver, and bring Sonos functionality to a third party system. Once you have a CONNECT hooked up to your stereo system, you can stream digital music and control the music selection and volume from the Sonos app.

                                                  Have a pair of speakers? The CONNECT:AMP is all you need.

                                                  If you have existing wired speakers that are not currently driven by amplifier, you can use a CONNECT:AMP to bring Sonos functionality to your speakers. Once you wire your speakers to a CONNECT:AMP, you can stream digital music and control the music selection and volume from the Sonos app.

                                                5. Can I connect Sonos to my TV?

                                                  PLAYBAR is the only soundbar that delivers outstanding Hi-Fi Sound for your TV and is a complete Wireless HiFi System that plays all the music on earth. It is simple to set-up, control and expand throughout your home. With only an optical cable connecting PLAYBAR to your TV, you can control it with your regular TV remote or with the free Sonos apps on iOS, Android, Mac and PC.

                                                  PLAYBAR is the core piece in a Sonos home theatre solution. If you want dramatically deeper bass, you can add our wireless SUB. If you're looking for surround sound, you can use two PLAY:1s or two PLAY:3s as wireless rear surrounds.

                                                6. Can I connect more than 2 speakers to the CONNECT:AMP?

                                                  The CONNECT:AMP is designed for a single pair of speakers - it is a stereo amplifier, right and left channel. However, if your speakers are rated at 8 ohms, you can wire up to 2 pairs, or 4 speakers, to one CONNECT:AMP - you just won’t have independent control between those two pairs of speakers, in terms of volume and music selection.  ×
                                                7. Can I use two PLAY speakers as a stereo pair?

                                                  The PLAY:1, PLAY:3 AND PLAY:5 can easily be setup as a stereo pair, using the controller app. If you are looking for more distinction between the left and right channels, you can use any two matching Sonos speakers in a stereo pair. Creating a stereo pair is a simple software toggle which turns one speaker into a dedicated left and the other into a dedicated right. Stereo pairing creates a wider stereo experience to help you hear every instrument and vocal more discretely, and fill a room more evenly with sound.

                                                8. Which speaker is right for my room?

                                                  All of our speakers sound great in any room; which speaker is best for your particular room depends on your desired room experience. For many, the PLAY:1 will provide an incredible music experience with deep bass and plenty of power. Consider upgrading to a PLAY:3 or PLAY:5, or to a stereo pair of speakers if you:

                                                  • Want deeper bass
                                                  • Want more power
                                                  • Have the space to set up two players in stereo pair mode

                                                9. How do I choose between a PLAY:5 and a stereo pair of PLAY:1s?

                                                  While both options deliver an incredible music experience, each has its unique benefits. The differences:

                                                  • Choose PLAY:5 for maximum power and the deepest bass.
                                                  • Choose a stereo pair of PLAY:1s to create a wider sound stage, allowing every vocal and instrument to be heard more discretely.
