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.

Keeps getting better.

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 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.

Over 30 streaming services available.

Sonos plays everything–the most popular streaming services, on-demand services, Internet radio, your favourite podcasts and audiobooks, your go-to collection of downloads­–whatever you love to listen to.

Line-in.

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.

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.

        Sonos, when it is set up is great. Setting it up.... Is hard and we had to get someone in to do it after struggling with it and the "step by step" instructions.
        Then our modem went and so did Sonos and it would not set up with the new one, so now we have a Boost hanging out of our modem which does not fit as it is in a small electrical cupboard. Not ideal but I have no idea how to return back to the original set up. The help line was good, but couldnt help us with the last part.

        Comments about SONOS PLAY:5:

        I've now bought a play 5 for the living room and a play 3 for the kitchen dinner, I love being able to walk from one room to the next and have the same music in your ears, super easy to set up and to move around into different rooms, just unplug from the electric and 're plug in a different room.

        I've had a bose system before and that sounded wonderful but in my opinion sonos is better still.

        I stream music through Google play and it couldn't be easier. I also was very impressed that you can make the system sound differently in different rooms using the room set up and equalizer.

        Love sonos!
