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 favorite 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 Internet radio, your favorite 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 favorite 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 optimizes 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 favorite songs in music-starved places like big master 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:

    I started with a single play 5 in our living room and purchased an additional play 5 for our dining room. We have been using them together as well as separately, the whole family loves how easy they are to use.

    Everyone who has visited and listened has agreed that they sound like a much larger component system!

    We plan on getting more wireless SONOS products soon for surround sound in an area that is difficult to run speaker wire.

      Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

      My first dive into the sonos world led me to the play 5s from the get go. After alot of research and serious debate, i began replacing my entire wired audio system. The play 5 made me learn to re-love some of my favorite music again by bringing out all the small fine details that easily can get washed away with over hyped speakers and receivers. While everyone stated these would handle most if the low end duty, i did not find that to be true. Asking that much od a single speaker defys natural laws. Which drove a sub buy...resulting in a very pleasing balance now. Highly recommend these for those who can take the plunge, but do your research before buying to make sure it fits your needs.

      Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

      Great technology - integrated easily with smarthouse (Homeseer) to allow messages and alerts to be heard throught the house, as well as adding event driven music control. I redirected the display of my tablet to my TV to show the Sonos control panel (find myself looking forward to my next favorite song). Added my TV surround sound via Sonos Connect for yet another room filled with music. The only thing limiting what I can do with my Sonos music system is the hours in a day.

        Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

        I use 2 play 5s in stereo mode in a relatively large room and the sound quality is excellent. I love the fact that you can adjust the volume and skip to next track from any speaker
        The only fault (if you can call it that) is that the cables provided for both power and network are too short.
