Sonos Play:5. The ultimate listening experience.
Play:5 is the best-sounding speaker we’ve ever designed. Whether you’ve got a big room to fill with music or a discerning ear for divine sound, we’ve got you covered.
Pure Audiophile Sound: Six Class-D amplifiers with six dedicated drivers deliver rich, crystal clear, stereophonic sound. With zero audible distortion, no matter how loud.
Exceptional Bass Response: Thanks to three mighty woofers and a completely sealed architecture, Play:5 delivers deep, precise lows with no reverb or echo.
Trueplay Speaker Tuning: This exclusive Sonos feature fine-tunes your Play:5 to make sure you get the very best sound in any room, no matter where you place it.
Sounds Great In Any Position: Stand it vertically or place it on its side, Play:5 optimizes its sound based on your preferred orientation.
Stereo Pair With Another Play:5: Turn each speaker into separate left and right channels for wider, bigger and deeper stereo sound.
Simple setup. Better over time.
Put your speaker wherever you want. Plug it in. Tap the free Sonos app – it connects to your home WiFi and you’re ready to rock.
Regular, ongoing software updates bring new features and services to your Play:5. So the longer you own it, the better it gets.
WiFi, not Bluetooth
With Sonos, the songs stream from your WiFi network (not your phone), so there's never any of the dropouts, delays or interruptions associated with Bluetooth.
One room of streaming music is great. But a house full is even better. Fill more rooms with music by simply adding more Sonos speakers. They all work together seamlessly so you can play different songs in different rooms or the same song everywhere.
'Alexa turn it up'
With an Amazon Echo and Dot, you can use your voice to play and control songs, playlists, radio stations, podcasts and more. On any Sonos speaker in any room or your home.
All the music on earth
Sonos plays everything - the most popular streaming services, on-demand Internet radio, your favorite podcasts and audiobooks, your go-to collection of downloads - whatever you love to listen to.
Access all the music on earth through the Sonos app, or control Sonos directly from the Spotify app.
One app. Complete music control.
Choose what to play, where to play it, and how loud. In one room or all over your home. Track down songs across all your music services with a single search. Create playlists in an instant. The Sonos app does it all.

I had listened to the play 3 and old generation play 5 and thought for the most part the new tech in the Play 1's are superior.
Now enter the new Play 5 with all the new tech and more and better speakers. I initially got one thinking I could do a stereo pair and compare it with the Play 1. That was a no go. Sonos software does not allow this pairing. Only like with like. So now I had to order another one, ouch that was costly.
Now that they are all setup in a stereo pair and did the custom sound procedure that sonos developed, they sound great. I did a side by side with the paired Play 1's and here is my findings. They both sound great. They both have great bass response and highs. Where they part ways is the midranges, the detail, and the soundstage.
The Play 5's take what was good in the Play 1's and make it better. They are also a lot louder for when you really want to pump some sound. You don't need the sub with the Play 5's. I have one, but it is really not needed anymore. The sub still does well for sure, but its kind of like there is a baby sub in each play five and the sub goes, Hey Im Here Too... Hey You Still Need Me Right?
The Play 5's are big and very heavy. About fourteen pounds each. Solid as a rock. Each speaker inside the Play 5 has its own amp.
I am glad I have them, but it was painful buying two. You really don't need two for a pretty big room unless you want to pair them in stereo. The also can sense how you place them and the sound is changed automatically for vertical and horizontal. Horizontal does sound a bit better but I prefer the look of the vertical on my shelves. Also takes up less room and I did not have much to spare where I placed them.
A little side note for those who have connection or interference issues. Do not buy a bridge, those are semi worthless. The Boost is much better. And something they don't advertise is that the sonos connect has the most powerful transmitter that will cut through interference like a light saber. I was running my system in a long house without it and was having connection problems all over the place. Hooked the connect back up in the middle of the house and it took over the signal from the boost. No more drops. Did not even have the connect connected to anything other than the ethernet.
The software is very intuitive, at least on my iOS or Mac systems. Once plugged in, it took me 5 minutes to begin playing music from my Apple music account or from my personal collection. I was never confused as to what to do - set up is very straightforward and expertly guided.
I only have one speaker now but plan to buy another later on. I will update my review at that time.
I am very happy with the Play:5's sound and features, but I will be holding off on purchasing any more Sonos speakers until I can hear the Google Home Max in person. Unless, of course, Sonos finally makes their speakers compatible with Google Home so I can control them with my voice. My guess is that the Google Home Max speaker will happen first.
