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.

Play music from Spotify straight to Sonos.

Enjoy all the personalized Spotify playlists and other listening features you love and more - without ever opening your Sonos app.

    Add a SUB.

    Wirelessly connect SUB to your PLAY:5—single or stereo pair—for dramatically deeper bass. Since your PLAY:5s don’t have to handle the bass anymore, they can focus on producing better mid-range and high frequencies.

        Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

        As the headline says, this is a beast. I heard about how heavy the new model was. When I lifted the box I could instantly tell this was a high quality made speaker. I've just begun with my Sonos set-up with this speaker and a Sonos Connect for my AE5 speakers. The 5 is positioned in the kitchen right now which is a little bit aggressive (a 3 would probably be more suitable for the size of room) but I love the way it sounds. I had to play around with it a little to get the optimal sound (adjusted equalizer) but finally have it just how I love to listen to music.

            Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

            I got a 5 for the family room...couldn't have been easier to set up and sounded fantastic. Lived with it for a week and ordered another one...and the room sounds even better - the imaging is incredible! Time to save up for a sub! Five stars all the way. Only wishes: 1) optical in (why not provide that option? I have my 4K TV going through an adapter to get to line in - sheesh) and 2) dedicated remote (though I don't mind using my phone or laptop, I think it would be more convenient to be able to just grab a remote to access the same features as the soft touch controls on the 5).
