Powerful, expansive sound
For powerful, life-like sound, the Sonos Five simply excels. This premium Sonos speaker uses three, smartly synchronized mid-woofers with a trio of tweeters to give a full-bodied, detailed sound that's bursting with energy.
Phased array for immersive audio
Using a phased array speaker layout, the Five directs sound to the left, centre and right, giving an enveloping, room-filling sound.
The Trueplay revolution - giving you tailored sound
The Sonos Five also features revolutionary Trueplay technology. Trueplay scans your room, analyses the results and then fine-tunes the speaker for the ideal listening experience. Whether your room is large or small, densely furnished or minimalist, the Five adapts to give the most natural and realistic sound possible (iOS device required).
Trueplay pairing gives sensational stereo
Pair two Five speakers and Trueplay intelligently senses their location. It then adjusts the outputs to deliver a broad, enveloping sound in horizontal mode, or more a focused and intense sound when positioned vertically. Discreet rubber feet on both the base and side make either horizontal or vertical positioning easy.
For personalised sound, use the Sonos app to adjust bass, treble and loudness.
Connect a deck – or other device, with the 3.5mm analogue input
Broaden the range of your Five’s capabilities with the 3.5mm AUX input. Connect a turntable (with phono pre-amp), CD player, TV, games console or other device and hear the sound played back through the Five. Even better, once connected to the Five, the sound can then be sent around your whole Sonos system – giving you the ability to playback your favourite CD or vinyl all around your home.
Effortless control – including Sonos S2 and Apple AirPlay 2
Download the latest Sonos S2 app and enjoy the smartest control app to date. With new features, usability updates and more personalisation, the S2 app gives enhancements all-round - both now and for the future. With AirPlay 2 also covered, you can stream directly from your Apple devices or ask Siri to play your favourites from Apple Music throughout your home.
Or connect to your voice enabled device, such as Amazon Echo or Google Assistant
Connect up to your existing voice-enabled device, such as an Amazon Echo or Google Home and enjoy voice-controlled playback – ideal for choosing music or adjusting the volume when you’ve got your hands full in the kitchen.
The Sonos system
Sonos gets better when you add more speakers. Play a movie in your living room, a podcast in the kitchen or the same music across all your Sonos speakers – flexibility is key. The latest Sonos components link via your home Wi-Fi but for very best results, linking one component to an Ethernet connection gives the most stable solution.
Hear every detail, with the Sonos Five.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Elslavo72 from Wow, this speaker is what I was looking for I bought two Sonos Five speakers three weeks ago, after setting up with True play, the speakers sound great. The music sounds very clean and the sound is perfectly balanced. The speakers have a fantastic bass that comes when you really need it. The system is paired in stereo with the two Five speakers, it gives a great soundstage. I am happy to have this Sonos set, my music sounds great now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LA13 from Definitely buy for great sound After wanting one for ages I finally got one for my husband. He loves it. The sound is amazing. The build quality is good, not the smallest item but it’s worth the size for the sound it gives off. The difference it makes to music and tv audio compared to the Beam and One really show it off. Richer sounds as usual provided excellent customer service and had it shipped and delivered a day before we expected it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bigdar from Sonos play 5 & Sonos five speaker Sonos Play 5 & Sonos 5 Speakers I had excellent customer service from the online team & follow up support from them regarding my order I had placed with the team.The Sonos Five is a great speaker & Goes very well with my Play Five speaker.But But i've found out through Sonos direct that the play 5 will not connect as a stereo pair with the sonos five speaker which i am so Disappointed with. Technology has moved on & its a 4 year old play Five speaker which is now not compatible with my new 5 speaker.If I knew about it beforehand I would not have bought the new Sonos 5.So be careful when you are adding to your sonos collection and make sure that the speakers will pair as a stereo pair first before buying it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from I am hearing my music for the first time I am really enjoying my sonos speakers. The stereo is excellent and i am hearing my music with great clarity. I have stumbled along for years with inferior speakers but these have given my music a new lease of life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Reuben Coulter from Brilliant sound, easy to use Impressive depth of sound for a single speaker. The app is intuitive to use. The only downside is that it doesn't easily allow video audio - integration with Netflix, Amazon Prime etc would be a game changer

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rog6969 from As always, quality equipment. I have had Sonos products for about 7 years. Can't fault them. Just upgraded my Sonos 5 and now able to use Sonos 2 upgraded software. The Roam is excellent very useful. Ideal for bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Murphj8 from Great Sound, fab service. I bought Sonos 5 as I grew sick of my old Bose 2.1 pc speakers which had the nasty habit of static and turning themselves off. It was going to be installed in my office but never made it out of the breakfast room as my husband commandeered it after a few days of use. All ended well as the next week we were back in South Croydon Richer Sounds (great staff and great shop) to pick up a second one (that’s Christmas sorted). The sound is so crystal clear and rich. If we didn’t already have a 5.1 in lounge this would have the start of a new system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Russell77 from Simply an amazing speaker I already own a couple of Sonos Ones and wanted this to be able to connect a turntable. The difference is amazing! It comfortably fills the space of the large room it lives in. Clear & crisp highs, excellent treble and mid-range and still manages a very deep bass. Very happy indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe9 from More than expectation The sound pressure, the stability of the bass range and the transparency of the treble range are all more than expected. I am now planning to buy one more unit to create an more sound spread environment within this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by davidwhineray from Smart looking speaker, sounds great I’ve long been a Sonos fan and bought this to use with a turntable. This, the turntable and the records fit nicely on a single shelf and look fantastic together. Sounds lovely too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lassemohr from Very happy so far All set up and happy with the output. I had to invest in a new phone as my Android version wasn't up-to-date enough to run the Sonos App, so worth checking this before you buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jakesy from Great sound, easy set up. Bought this to add another Sonos 5 that we already had. Great to have stereo sound in the kitchen now. Tip - Connecting any Sonos unit direct to your router also makes a massive difference to the Sonos network stability. Took the free delivery option expecting delivery in a few days and arrived the following working day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by brotherbaxter from Very impressed with the sound This is my first Sonos product, and am really pleased with it. Generally did most of my music listening on separates systems up until now, so when looking for something I could take out onto the patio, I was kind of surprised by the sound quality of this thing. Bass extension is really impressive for the size of it- not overdone, but goes plenty deep. Its pricy, but worth it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gareth Gates from Solid sound easy set up Changing from 2 sonos one to a single sonos five. Sound fills the room well and doesn't over power the room as concerned. Linked with an amazon echo dot to allow voice assistant to control it. Works well with the other rooms and allows zones to be set up. Expensive for what it is but still worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by D3lboy from Excellent speakers I was worried the Fives would be too loud and overwhelming in my normal sized living room, I previously had two play 3s. These 5s are brilliant even at low volumes, absolute quality but of course they are they're Sonos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TCSh from sound improvement is more than expected Being a total novice, I was very grateful to have the technical advice and suggestions from Hunter. The sound improvement was far more than I expected. I shall now seek further advice for extending the system throughout the house. That how impressed I am.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Serpsi from Great speaker for its size. I’d original bought an Audio Pro C10 over the Sonos after reading lots of glowing reviews (yes you What hifi) but sent it back (didn’t buy from Richer Sounds) as, although the bass was excellent it had no midrange and couldn’t handle anything with complex stereo. Spoke to the guys at Plymouth and explained my misgivings about the C10 and what was there experience of it. They were totally honest and said although they liked the C10 they preferred the Sonos overall. So took the plunge and they sent one next day. Set up was an absolute doddle through the app and was I up and running in a few minutes. The sonos sounds so much better than C10 it really is worth the extra money. I was blown away with how good the sound was, amazing clarity across all ranges and it doesn’t miss a beat from anything I throw at it. C10 owners, try playing Funkadelics ‘Maggot brain’ and see what happens at the six minute mark, I guarantee you’ll rethink your purchase. For those undecided as to which to get, it’s a no-brainer, get the Sonos Five.
