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

  • 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 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.

    Just love our Sonos systems. Will purchase another and more to follow. I'm a bit of a geek(ok, I'm on the far right hand side of the bell curve for geekism). I had to compare the Sonos to the Bose and Sonos won!

      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.

        Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

        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.

                          So easy to switch between radio and music. Keep well informed and listen to great music.

                              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

                                  I listen to my own Spotify playlist, but lately also lists from Spotify. The Play:5 has great all-in-1 sound for one room. We only have one and only need one, for this one room. Easy to operate from the Sonos app.

                                        Overall the sound is amazing. The ability to stream from the external input to multiple wirelessly connected speakers is an impressive feature.

                                        The Android UI needs to be improved as it's pretty clunky. The Spotify compatibility is incomplete, especially the use of radio stations. Because of this limitation and the high cost I wouldn't recommend this to a friend. There's also no way to stream music from my Linux computer, though that's not unusual. Hopefully the software is upgraded to improve this.

                                        I will say and have shared to all that have asked, the Play 5 has the best sound that I have ever heard out of anything I've heard before!

                                          Great sound! Love the EQ capability. Needs to have Bluetooth capability even though the sound quality may drop when using Blutooth due to lower bit rate, it still is a convenient option.

                                          This is a review of the Sonos system as a whole, not just Sonos 5.

                                          I love it, Sonos changed my life. The system is amazing and I would recommend it with a full heart to anyone. I genuinely believe it is a step ahead of any other home music system.

                                          two major downsides:

                                          1. Youtube: You cannot play youtube music on Sonos, and that's just uncool given that youtube is major source of music for most. Please address this issue, it would make all of the difference.

                                          2. The power wire. I understand that Sonos is a house system and that the speakers are not designed to move around, but adding a battery feature to the speakers would be perfect, as it would allow users to take their speakers to their beach-houses, for example, or to the garden area when we have people over, without running the hassle of having to find a power plug.

                                                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

                                                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.
