    • Crystal-clear, room-filling sound

      5 speakers powered by 5 dedicated digital amplifiers

      The PLAY:5 uses 5 state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with 5 speakers to deliver superior sound to any room. The wireless music system provides crystal-clear, high-quality sound that rivals much larger, more complicated systems. A subwoofer produces powerful bass while two mid-range drivers and two tweeters fill out the sound.

      Class-D amplifiers

      State of the art, great sounding amplifiers that are light weight, powerful and very energy efficient in standby and use.

      Tweeters

      2 tweeters create a crisp and accurate high frequency response.

      Mid-range drivers

      2 dedicated mid-range drivers ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments.

      Subwoofer driver

      Dedicated subwoofer driver provides deep, powerful bass you can feel.

      All-digital sound architecture

      From the recording studio to your home the music is reproduced as the artist intended. All filter settings, active equalization, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry so there’s absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.

      Acoustic port

      The acoustic port on the rear of the unit serves two purposes – it’s vital to the sound output of the PLAY:5 when in use and it’s also a convenient handle when moving it from one room to another.

      Adjustable bass and treble controls

      Optimize sound performance using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms
