”The original champion is still hard to fault.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

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 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality I had been putting off buying a Sonos play5 for a while. That was a mistake, because now I have it at home and how it sounds. I don’t think I could go without it. Just be mindful of the alarm feature that will work even if you are not home. I set an alarm for 7:15 with a song that is bass heavy and loud and wasn’t home, I had my neighbours ringing me up to come turn it off. The sound and build quality is high end.
