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.

The Sonos app helps you quickly search through all your services to track down favourite 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.

Plug in any audio device—from your record player to a friend’s phone—and listen to your favourite 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 optimises 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 favourite songs in music-starved places like 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.

    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 purchased one Play 5 speaker and was so blown away by the amazing sound quality and seamless use of the app.
    I recently purchased a second Play 5 speaker and could not be happier!
    Next on the list is a Sonos Sub!
    Great job Sonos!
    Keep up the great work!

    Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

    Firstly, awesome sound quality. I know it's expensive but I say buy it right and replace it rarely. If you are looking for something to play your Google play or iTunes library through then look no further.
    Downside is that's pretty much all it does except for when you connect with an aux cable. No Bluetooth is a bit of a let down, especially if you want it to be part of a PC setup like I did, but all in all it is some bit of kit.

    Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

    This speaker is my main living space speaker, services the entire space really well & as an added bonus works well with my TV via the line-in port until I can afford the playbar. Having music present around my home has also made a highly positive impact on my stress levels too, so thanks sonos! The sound clarity & bass is incredible. As I said in the title of this review I thought Sonos was all hype due to the large press surrounding it, I've never been more happy to be wrong.
