What customers are saying:

Play music from Spotify straight to Sonos.

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 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.

        Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

        I've wasted a lot on money on another popular system of devices and finally got fed up with unreliable service. The Sonos system and app is unbelievable and works exceptionally well. Sound on the Plan5 is very good. We have two Play5's, one in the den/kitchen area and one in LR/Dining room area. Both are large expansive high ceiling areas and they have no problem supporting the areas. Impressive. We have 3 Play1's in bedroom, office and studio that provide plenty of music depth to full the entire house. I fully plan to change my surround sound TV system shortly.

            We absolutely LOVE this speaker. It was incredibly easy to set up - the website/app guided me along step by step and even though I'm not particularly technologically savvy, I found it very easy to do. It actually adjusts to the size of the room that you are putting it in which I was most impressed with. You have to move your ipad/phone/computer etc around the room so it can get a sense for the space and then adjusts the output accordingly; fantastic! The sound is rich and clear and makes any genre sound great. I do however wish the volume went just a little bit louder; I like my music LOUD. We are planning to get a second one and that will really take things to the next level.

            I do hope that Sonos continues to make products that are not exclusively wireless. We like the fact that this speaker has the ability to physically plug in to other pieces/sources. The safety of wireless is questionable, you can't always rely on wireless and if you want to take the speaker somewhere else you can't always get access to it so it's nice to have that capability on this speaker (the 1 and 3 do not have that feature so it's wireless or nothing which is disappointing).
