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.

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.

    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:

    I spent a lot of time researching a wireless speaker system to replace my old stereo system. After much debate, I settled on the Sonos Play 5. Let me say, I was NOT disappointed! The sound from this speaker is amazing. Set up is easy, and functionality is exceptional.

      This is, by far, the best sounding and easiest to set up wireless speaker I've ever heard. I look forward to expanding even more. Sonos beats BOSE, hands down.

          Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

          I consider myself somewhat of an audiophile, and have been using a multi room set up, that I created, for about 10 years. I am a Mac user and have multiple zones set up throughout my house. Some wired and some wireless. My friends and family have always loved my set up and the fact I could control music in different rooms, volume....and have all wanted a system "Like Mine" Well - Sonos does it and does it better. I am using my Play 5 in my bathroom and it is serving double duty. I have a 3,5 mm plugged into the back so it can "Join" my system or I can simply play it using the Sonos App. It's so easy to set up - My girlfriend loves having her own jukebox of her music. Great Job Sonos! I will be adding more pieces in the near future.

          The Sound quality for one speaker is Amazing! Rich, Full Deep Sound. 2 of my cousins that recently heard my Play 5 - are now Sonos believers!

            Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

            On the 1st of January, I went brought my first play five speaker. From the start it was mind blowing on how the sound was in my room. So I kept thinking how would this sound if I had two PLAY 5s together! Two weeks later I got another PLAY 5. It was hands down the best speakers I have listened to. Sounds great paired up. Only down fall that I have is that they are pricey! But I would say worth it. So far I have got 4 of my friends to go out and get them on.
