"If your music collection is largely CD-quality tracks and below, or youre a serial Spotify user, then Sonos is a great multi-room ecosystem." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2015

Pure and true sound you'd expect from Sonos

For transparent, life-like sound, the Sonos PLAY 5 simply excels. The latest PLAY:5 uses three, smartly synchronized mid-woofers with a trio of tweeters to give a full-bodied, detailed sound that's bursting with energy.

The TRUEPLAY revolution - giving you tailored sound
The latest generation Sonos PLAY:5 features revolutionary TRUEPLAY technology. TRUEPLAY scans your room, analyses the results and then fine tunes all six speakers for the ideal listening experience. Whether your room is large or small and the unit is placed close to a wall or in the centre, the latest PLAY:5 adapts to give the most natural and realistic sound possible.

TRUEPLAY pairing gives sensational stereo
Pair two PLAY:5 speakers and TRUEPLAY will intelligently sense their locations. 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.

Built for continuous improvement
With its smooth good looks, the Sonos PLAY:5 is designed to look every bit as good in years to come as it does now. Yet Sonos have taken the idea of design longevity further by engineering in the ability to update the electronics through future software updates.

The Sonos system
The Sonos wireless sound system is simply one of the best-sounding, most reliable and flexible there is. With the latest Sonos components you don't even require a BRIDGE or BOOST, as they are capable of linking via your home WiFi system. For the very best results, though, linking one component to an Ethernet connection will allow you to take advantage of the famous Sonos 'Mesh' system.

Strength through numbers
The more components you add, the stronger the dedicated wireless mesh becomes. Best of all, because it runs independently from your Wi-Fi, the reliability and strength of the signal is unaffected by Wi-Fi dropouts.

Sonos control
Controlling your Sonos system couldn't be easier. Simply download the dedicated app for your smartphone or tablet - both Apple iOS and Android are catered for - and you're good to go. You can stream music stored on your device, from a local network or take advantage of music streaming services such as Spotify. With the massive selection of music sources available on Sonos, there's simply no need to buy 'physical' music again!

Music services available on Sonos
Add your existing music streaming service or discover something new. Whether curated or on-demand, free or subscription-based, Sonos has you covered with access to a growing list of over 30 music services. For example, you can enjoy Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, Google Play Music or many more paid services or SoundCloud, TuneIn Radio or 22Tracks free services.

For the most versatile, best-sounding and stylish Sonos music speaker, the PLAY:5 sets the standard for others to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cracking bit of kit Had this for a couple weeks now and I'm really happy with the build quality and sound. Replaced my old marantz Hi-Fi with this as I don't use cds anymore, using Spotify and can't complain. Would highly recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hold off buying that pair of Play:1's..BUY THIS!! Quite simply the most incredible sound from something this size. I made the terrible mistake of going to but a Play:1 or possibly Play:3 but listened to the Play:5 first. There really is no comparison in sound. I love deep slow velvety bass tracks that don't want to be too loud to be appreciated and this speaker really delivers. I now have two because the sound is addictive and, once experienced, you WILL want more of the same. I can't describe how one speaker can fill a 20+ foot room with ease but the Play:5 can. I use one connected to an Amazon Echo Dot, configured to Spotify and it is the laziest but quintessential way to enjoy music. As I said before, put off buying a pair of Play:1's or that extra Play:3 and just buy this ....you will not be disappointed..i promise!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous sound and easy to use I bought this speaker along with a Sonos 1 about 2 weeks ago. It was so easy to set up and the sound is absolutely fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what was needed. I wanted a speaker that could play Apple Music. The Weybridge shop let me listen to this model and the Play 3. I wanted the 3 as it was cheaper, but the sound difference between the two made me spend the extra cash and glad I did. Fills the living room with high quality sound. Easy to set up, provided no one looks through the window to see you waving your iPad about. Like another reviewer wrote, the on,y drawback is my wife and daughter's awful music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heard a lot about Sonos... all true. Alex in the Nottingam store kindly demonstrated the Sonos 1, 3 & 5 and after originally walking into the shop looking at the smaller units, I was immediately smitten with the 5. The 1 & 3 were great, but the 5 sounded like a true weighty hi-fi speaker. Everything about Sonos is quality, from the build even down to the box it comes in and the engineered power chord. Setting up was a piece of cake. Downloaded the phone app, it immediately found the speaker, asked me to name it or select popular name from list (Kitchen, Bedroom, Hall etc) The app opened up my Apple Music & radio channels and piped the music through no issues. I am a sceptic of these 'self-calibration' modes to get the best sound EQ from products, but I ran the Sonos one.. and it pained me to admit but this actually worked and the sound was better than my own settings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos - Amazing Love my new speakers, Richer Sounds have always been helpful and efficient thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just wow I have been wanting to make this purchase for a while now but the price was putting me off, I went in to richer sounds Hanley to buy 3 x sonos play 1s but after speaking to Gareth I came out with the play 5 and 1 x play 1, what a speaker the play 5 is and what a back up performer the 1 is, I initially set up the play 1 and was blown away with the sound from such a small unit, when I had set up the play 5 I was speechless just how bold and punchy the sound was from the unit, I am so glad I switched to the play 5 at the last minute as although I would not have been disappointed with the 1s I now know that the 5 just excels in the range. I was looking at these in the local branch of Currys as I know the price is always the same where ever you go for Sonos but I went over to Richer sounds to get the same deal but to take advantage of their 6 year guarantee, If you are thinking of taking the plunge and the finances will stretch to it go for the 5 you will not be disapointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really excellent product They have done a great job in creating a WiFi Hi-Fi that really does meet both needs. I love the Sonos products and this model is truly great! I think they look great and provide the best audio quality for this kind of price range (especially with TruePlay which is amazing)! It also looks great and is not intrusive (like many devices with the same audio quality are). The app is really easy to use and because the music is streamed by the Sonos device itself it does not glitch and does not stop when your phone leaves the room. The Sonos 5 also overcomes my one dislike of these products - the fact that only a limited number of services (Apple Music, Spotify, etc) are supported, and third party application can't AirPlay directly to the Sonos. The Sonos 5 has an audio jack connection allowing you to have a separate device plugged in, but it isn't the best experience. I'm hoping Sonos change this though at some stage!
