Deep bass

Three custom-designed woofers deliver rich bass whilst the sealed architecture eliminates reverb and echo.
Listen in stereo
Pair two Play:5s in the upright position and each speaker smartly adjusts to mono for incredibly detailed stereo separation. Place a single Play:5 horizontally and it plays stereo sound automatically.

Use the line-in to connect your turntable or a friend's phone with the built-in 3.5 mm jack.

What is a wireless speaker?

A wireless speaker connects to your WiFi network to stream audio content. Play:5 does not have a battery and therefore requires AC power.

How do I set up a Sonos speaker?

Download the Sonos app and create an account. Plug your speaker in and open the app. Make sure your device is connected to your home's WiFi network. The app will take you through setup step by step in only a few minutes.

Can I connect Play:5 to my TV?

No. The line-in isn't designed for use with a TV and will result in some latency or lip sync issues whilst the audio is converted from analogue to digital.

Can I adjust the bass level?

Yes. You can adjust the following equalisation (EQ) settings of each Sonos speaker from the Room Settings menu of the Sonos app: bass, treble, balance, and loudness.

Can I use a pair of Play:5 speakers as home cinema surrounds?

Yes. Play:5 will connect to Sonos home cinema speakers or home cinema systems connected to Sonos components.

Can I put Play:5 outside on my patio or in my garden?

Play:5 is not weather rated. It is not recommended that you leave Play:5 outdoors when it is not in use.

How can I use voice control with Play:5?

Play:5 can be controlled with either Alexa or the Google Assistant when connected to a voice-enabled device, such as Sonos One, Beam, Google Home, or an Amazon Echo Dot, over WiFi.

Can I hardwire Play:5 to my network router?

Yes. Play:5 has an ethernet port so you can connect it directly to your router if WiFi is unreliable.
