          Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

          I've added the Play 5 to compliment my Playbar (which is sits beneath Samsung 55" TV). The Play 5 was bought in favour of the Sub due to the cost of the Sub and also, we live in a detached house and was anxious that there may be too much bass. The Play 5 sits behind the settee and does exactly what I wanted it to do - give enhanced sound and bass. The Play 5 had to be added as 'another room' rather than a rear. After working this out and putting a line in from Amazon Alexa (via 3.5mm - 3.5mm jack lead) - music has never sounded better. Alexa plays upon request and her voice / music sounds from both Playbar and Play 5. Bass is rich and more than enough for a 4m x 4m living room. Turn the volume up and the sound takes the windows (and next doors) out! Brilliant sound when gaming and through films / YouTube and TV. Tech heads may dissect the sound and criticise me for putting a speaker behind the settee but hey -most of us would not care.
          The Sonos App is easy enough to use once all of the inputs have been set up. Mine include - TV, Music and line in. All use the Playbar and Play 5. Music is easily accessed and streamed through the set-up. I have Amazon Music and Google Play. (I never touch vinyl or CD's any more but that is a preference).

          So, is it worth the £1,100 for essentially 2 speakers? That is subjective and depending on whether one can justify it? My Mrs thinks that the sound is great but shrieked at the cost and definitely does not think its worth it. I, however melt in to my settee when I get the chance to use the set-up. Sure you can buy full systems (soundbar / sub / rears) - at a fraction of the cost. But you are not just buying speakers, you are buying technology, software and an experience. In a couple of years, other brands will be worth coppers and passed on or disposed of. The Sonos (whilst maybe not an investment) will still be desirable and worth money. If you can justify it - buy it, sit back, grin but warn the neighbours 1st
