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 Theater

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

  • All-digital sound architecture

    All filter settings, active equalization, 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

    Optimize 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:

The seamless interaction with the Sonos app on all my devices is beautiful. The Play 5 was easy to set up..... and clever. I was pleasantly surprised and on occasion blown away from the clear and comprehensive sound on my Play 5. I have listened to it every single day since I bought it, that was 45 days ago. I love my Play 5 and I look forward to adding more devices to my Sonos family.

    A surprise birthday present which i love. Being able to hear some of the notes which you just don't hear on lesser speakers and still able to produce the power when you want it without distortion in a single high quality unit. It sits in our bookcase and the whole family has the app to control and play the music of their choice sometimes a bit louder than necessary. Shame it didn't have airplay built in as the sound through the aux in via a express plug wasn't as great. Other than that great speaker now i just need another one ;)

              Use in my 2-story family room on main floor and it is on much of the day. I love being able to control via app and change up the music to new genres for different moods/activities. I love Amazon Music, so nice that it hooks into this service directly. I also love not having my phone tied up with Bluetooth.

              I hooked up a Connect to the downstairs Bose theater system to stream same music or different music, but the quality is not there.

                    I have a play5 and two play1 around my house. The sound is crystal clear and faultless. I could not be happier with the Sonos system I have and cannot recommend it enough. So easy to set up and streams from my file server effortlessly. Get one, or many. I have no regrets. Not many products tick all the boxes in today's world, but Sonos is outstanding and we'll worth the investment.

                      Great item and amazing sound and streaming capabilities. I am definitely considering extending my system around the flat but other items don't look as up to date as the new Play:5 and I am therefore willing to wait until they are updated both it terms of design and sound capacities. I really like the Pay:5 because it also has a 3.5mm stereo audio which allow me to get the sound directly from my computer, PS4 and external display when I want. I will also consider buying more if Sonos starts offering better price when buying a pair of Play:1, Play:3 or Play:5. I think it is the most common sense strategy to offer a better price per unit when buying more than 1 item of the same kind.

                          This was a great purchase. I bought three Play 5's and one Play 3. My house fills with music and I walk from room to room enjoying seamlessly. It's a dream come true.
                          They were so easy to set up.
                          My only issue has to do with some music doesn't get copied to the library (there are others I read have the same issue) - but I work around it. It's not a big deal.

                              On my ranch the barn serves as the "cowboy cave" and after years of tinny AM radio the time was now to go big. The 5 has turned out to be the perfect sound instrument for the 30X30 space even with its concrete floors. Even the buffalo and longhorn heads agree: Sonos beats to a sound of a better drum.

                                  Bought a single play 5 and was really impressed with the sound and build quality.
                                  I had to buy another within a few weeks and set up a stereo pair.

                                  The only disappointing thing with them is the lack of Bluetooth connection. I just assumed that all wireless speakers had Bluetooth. If I had realised before purchasing them I would have gone for Bose.
                                  The sound quality more than makes up for this shortcoming.

                                            This is the first product that has given me instant gratification, it was easy to set up, and unusually I didn't need the kids to help. I bought one " play 5 ", I loved it so much I went back and bought another. I love them, it has given me a renewed love of music. My only quibble is you can't ask the interface for Artist + Track, at least I don't seem to be able to, but I get around that, and it doesn't affect my enjoyment

                                            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 favorite 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 theater 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.
