“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.

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.

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 3 out of 5 by from Not easy to set up I bought a system sonos 5 beam a quality deck and preamp. The beam is brilliant. The sonos 5 requires a master class to set up. It can only be done through an app, and you need that app on every device you wish to connect. Each app has to be individually set up, it took us two full evenings, a call with sonos, and a revisit to the shop to prove the preamp, really great customer service, from R S and Sonos. Just a shame it's not plug and play. The sound is probably great I'll have to come back to you on that, we have only managed to get the deck working but its only been a week; early days. I am hoping to get a phone connected tonight wish me luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Initially I bought Audio Pro T10 but then exchanged it for Play5. The difference in sound is noticeable, and I’m much more satisfied now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprising quality Before opening the Sonos Play 5 I discovered how solidly it was built carrying the box on the 1 mile walk home. I have linked my old, and good quality, HiFi system to the Play 5 using the Sonos Connect and I have been able to compare the Play 5 with my old KEF Celeste IV pair of speakers. Bigger the better may still apply at the extremes of speaker size but the Sonos at a third of the volume of my "conventional" HiFi speakers is quite remarkable. The base is solid and with the ability to I tweak the frequency output I enlivened the Sonos sound by - yes - increasing the higher frequency output. The Sonos 5 really has HiFi output but in the large room in which it is installed the stereo separation is not adequate. As Sonos very commendably claim to build these speakers for 10 year or more life (even giving a 6 year guarantee) I am now thinking I shall have to buy the second Sonos 5 to properly enjoy the full potential of the output - but I am hesitating because of the cost! I'm still slightly unsure finding my way around the app. but the set up very easy - just as good modern software should be. The system is now on Sony smart phone, HP Windows 10 laptop, Nexus and Lenova Android tablets and all are working seamlessly together. Well done …….

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just perfect! Excellent sound quality, beautiful and sleek design. The Play 5 (gen 2) is just awesome and we are very happy with our purchase. I'm a music junkie and so we window shopped around to find the best performance speaker on the market. We had checked the sound and build quality of Sonos against the Apple HomePod (absolutely overrated and pants speaker), Bose system (good sound but vivid distortion when towards max volume), Samsung speakers (please don't bother) and many others. The Play 5 wins hands down in every battle. No distortion, crisp clarity and enough sound to fill the whole house. We purchased the Play 5 and a Sonos One at the same time. Both speakers are just great. Only cons - it can be a little nightmare during the set up process. TIP: Leave the ethernet plugged in for 10 mins for it to initialise during set up, only then it will become fully discoverable. When removing the ethernet, go to Settings > Advanced Settings > Wireless Set Up to pair via WiFi. Overall I'm giving 5 stars as this really is a high performance speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product 10/10 We bought a Sonos Play 5 for our new offices and it does the job perfectly filling the canteen around with clear quality sound even when its full of people. It's also very easy to set up and add to our existing Sonos players on the network.
