“Sonos as a system has two big things going for it – breadth of choice and simplicity of use” What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017

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.

Now featuring Apple AirPlay 2 for seamless streaming from your Apple device
With AirPlay, stream directly from your Apple devices or ask Siri to play your favorites from Apple Music throughout your home.

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 4 out of 5 by from Sonus 5 and Sonus 1 This really is an excellent system. It’s compact size means you can set up a network of speakers around the home and the sound from the speakers is excellent. The clarity and power the speakers deliver is very impressive indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks bath store I already had a Sonos setup. I have been thinking about the play 5 for a while however no where had them setup as a stereo pair so I could get a full view and compare the setup with and without the sub. The guys at the bath store were fantastic they set it all up moved things around to allow me to sample everything I needed to. I ended up buying the play 5 pair and I have no regrets at all. As with the rest of my sonos gear sound is amazing. You only need to play Bob Dylan man in the long black coat. To understand why you need a stereo pair of play 5s Thanks again guys I will be returning for more from bath

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product The Play 5 produces a fantastic sound and the mobile interface is easy to download and use. The interface to the lap top is harder to find as you cannot get it through the app store. Once it is installed the app finds your music and you are up and running. Would highly recommend this product

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ideal for streaming not so good as a speaker As a stand alone purchase this is not such a great product. As a multi room solution for streaming music it is one of the best with some caveats - it's NOT a bluetooth speaker and you HAVE to use the Sonus app which may not be as good as the app you currently use to play music and it does not support all streaming services, most notable ( IMHO) is Amazon prime music ( the free service thrown in with Prime membership). The speaker itself has enough volume ( box size I mean ) to provide good Bass although I'm not sure the mid ranges comes out as much as it perhaps should for the price but if you like deep bass this is for you. Like all speakers it's personal choice so go listen to it in store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great room filling sound As expected, a huge upgrade from a play:1. Fills a large room easily, with a surprising amount of bass.
