    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 bought 2 PLAY:5's and they were very easy to set up, I like how the app is also very easy to use.
    I liked how the app automatically asks to stereo pair the speakers up when you add a 2nd speaker.

    The sound quality of these speakers are amazing that it blew me away when I first listened to them.
    I also like the fact that you can expand your setup very easily by adding more speakers or a sub into the mix, I'm definitely looking into get a sub in the near future.

      Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

      This product replaces previously large componentry which had necessary physical connectivity and now provides a quality medium for all sound uses. From a relatively small and inconspicuous unit, sound quality is brilliant and room filling. Combined with good Internet music sources, such as Spotify, all genres and themes of music are available. I'm sold!

      Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

      This speaker is incredibly versatile and has a well-balanced default sound. The bass of the device correlates perfectly with the level of volume, while the treble and flat layers of any music played are still clear. The default balance allows a quiet and isolated sound for intimate, softer experiences. While the speaker also thrives off high intensity, louder experiences, satisfying anyone's sound needs. The connected app has its flaws, and there is room for improvement. Additionally, the price point is very intimidating and makes the product quite niche. Though overall, an amazing speaker.

      Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

      Cant play music from you tube or other apps I'd like to play the sound over the speaker :(
      Especially for this money I want to play what I want and not that it's only certain apps that I can play :(
      Didn't know it's not wireless as it's advertised as such... stil need power cord 24/7 :(
      Because of these reasons I wouldn't recommend it and I'm sorry I've bought it as it limits me !!

      Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

      Initially had a few setup and reliability problems on my home wireless as I had non standard channel & bandwidth settings. I also had a false expectation that the Sonos would be 5GHz compatible. All brilliant now though after I stabilised my wireless network. Home to add to the collection next year!. Music quality is great !
