          Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

          Since installing my Sonos Play 5 in our den/family room area, it has now become our primary living area. Sound is extremely well balanced including a bottom-end that borders on unbelievable. Bass is deeper than anything I can remember from a device of this kind, but never overpowering (I'm not a bass-head by any means). Mid-range shines like a pair of high-end speakers. Be aware that the sound, especially at a bit of a distance is room-dependent and I found that there were some minute changes in the sound as I moved around the room. Sitting/standing in or near corners boosted the bass down another octave but never got in the way of the music. Highly, highly recommended!

            Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

            First of i would never ever think I'm going to give a rave review for that kind of speakers.
            For years i was using standard condo amp-cd-speakers.
            I switched between probably 30 pairs of speakers, many amps, cd players and dads.
            Always pretty decent stuff like KEF, B&W, Tannoy, PSB etc....
            Well i have to say that for everyday use Sonos is amazing.
            I still like to listen to my favorites tracks via my dedicated stereo system but....
            Well probably 85% of time I'm using Sonos in couple of rooms.
            Quality satisfying my 1000%
            it might be not a match for my stereo but, well it is much cheaper (Sonos Play5 2nd gen, 2 speakers setup as stereo pair) and it is very portable.
            Setup is a breeze, quality is great and sound is really nice.
            To me it is a great product and I'm enjoying it every day.
            Thanks
