“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.

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 Great unit as always from Sonos Had sonos 1 & 3 but the sonos play 5 Is by far my favourite. Sound Is amazing and personally feel better than previous ones. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional speaker Being a big Sonos fan, the play 5 was the latest addition to my collection. Really good sound and aux in is ideal for my record player.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not overly impressed For someone that is a bit of a technical dinosaur, but not stupid, I found it quite complicated to set up and move from different rooms. Sound was quite good but I could quite easily have thrown it out the window on a number of occasions. I’m sure it will get easier to use when you are familiar with it but was and is quite frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a new Sonos customer, this is an extension I already have quite a bit of Sonos kit, but wanted the stereo pair of play 5's for my kitchen where most parties happen. Sonos have decided not to bother upgrading their Windows and Linux Network connection from SMB 1, which as SMB 1 weaknesses were a key part of the Wannacry and other internet based ransom-ware attacks earlier this year the sensible option is not to use it but instead go for SMB 3 (still an old but stable platform) lost? exactly! what should be an extremely easy to use way to play your music all over your home, isn't! without technical understanding it doesn't work well. I have moved my music to a MAC Mini which doesn't use SMB as a networking protocol, but I suspect many less technical geeks would have returned it very frustrated. Anyhow, once working it is great, the single interface for all your music and radio needs in any room encourages you to use it more. I now have music in 4 rooms of my home and personally I think it sounds great at any volume. Going to click no on the recommend to a friend though as it really should stay with the times (SMB 1 was depreciated 14 years ago before Sonos existed) and it will almost definitely cause more problems over the next year or so as more and more Routers and AV software block the protocol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Music everywhere Excellent sound, great range of available content (radio players are fab!), make the room so much tidier than traditional hifi set up, just love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound I bought this play 5 about 3 weeks ago for my kitchen. l listened to quite a few different speakers in the store and this is in a totally different league to all the others. I know it’s expensive but is worth every penny. Whish I could buy another one but will have to save up.
Date published: 2017-10-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Works Really Happy with the Play 5. I hesitated due to the price but I must say you get what you pay for. The sound quality is amazing and I was up and running in less than 5 minutes. I'm now saving for the 2nd one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and great service Truly great speaker to compliment my Sonos family. Great sound and simple usage through the Sonos app, to play all your music and then some. Personally I use it for Spotify, but supports all others. Bought to celebrate the recent Sonos anniversary! Be warned though this is a big speaker. If space is at a premium for you then go for the play 1's, a pair of those would have a similar effect in a a small space. One of many purchases made through RS, this year. Cannot recommend the Bournemouth Staff enough, will definitely buy from this branch again soon
