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.

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.

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.

      extremely good sound, very easy to set up and even easier to use. Works from my computer, tablet or cell phone. The internet radio subscription it comes with is fantastic. So happy that I intend to buy more Sonos speakers. In fact I will probably buy no other brand of speaker for inside the home.

            Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

            After comparing the sound of the Play:3 to the Play:5, I decided to buy one Play:5 with the hope that I would not feel a need for another speaker. I am delighted with the sound of my Play:5 - clean, rich and warm with an impressive bass response. For my musical tastes, one speaker is perfect.

            I bought my system with the thoughts of how portable it would be. I knew I would want to use it in at least 2 different rooms in my house as well as to take with me to our vacation cottage. I needed tech support in the latter location since Sonos was looking for my home wifi, and I was uncertain as to what I needed to do.

            I have had a couple of tech issues due mainly to my lack of understanding of how Sonos works and have been completely satisfied with the total tech support experience.

            I absolutely would recommend Sonos and in particular the Play:5 to others.
