Sonos White Play:5 Music System, Model PLAY5US1

The ultimate all-in-one listening experience with the richest HiFi sound.

  • Stream your entire music library, music services, and radio stations
  • Control wirelessly, easy to set up music system
  • 5 Driver HiFi Speaker System for room filling sound
  • Line-in to connect your favorite music sources.

Original, bigger room, bigger sound wireless speaker
The PLAY:5 uses 5 state-of-the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with 5 speakers to deliver superior sound to any room. A subwoofer produces powerful bass while two mid-range drivers and two tweeters fill out the sound. The Play:5 is available in both black and white.

Features:

  • 5 speakers powered by 5 dedicated digital amplifiers
    The PLAY:5 uses 5 state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with 5 speakers to deliver superior sound to any room. The wireless music system provides crystal-clear, high-quality sound that rivals much larger, more complicated systems. A subwoofer produces powerful bass while two mid-range drivers and two tweeters fill out the sound.
  • Mid-range drivers
    2 dedicated mid-range drivers ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments.
  • Acoustic port
    The acoustic port on the rear of the unit serves two purposes – it's vital to the sound output of the PLAY:5 when in use and it's also a convenient handle when moving it from one room to another.
  • Class-D amplifiers
    State of the art, great sounding amplifiers that are light weight, powerful and very energy efficient in standby and use.
  • Tweeters
    2 tweeters create a crisp and accurate high frequency response.
  • Subwoofer driver
    Dedicated subwoofer driver provides deep, powerful bass you can feel.
  • All-digital sound architecture
    From the recording studio to your home the music is reproduced as the artist intended. All filter settings, active equalization, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry so there's absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.
  • Adjustable bass and treble controls
    Optimize sound performance using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms
  • Pre-loaded Internet radio stations - free of charge
    Get over 100,000 free radio stations, shows, and podcasts -- all for free. And you can tune in without turning on your computer. Browse for stations or type in specific call letters or a radio host you love.
  • Computer-free music playback
    Get instant access to millions of songs and thousands of radio stations — without ripping, downloading or turning on a computer. Sonos connects directly to these services over the Internet and then streams the music to the rooms of your choice.
  • Endless music from the most popular online music services
    Sonos works seamlessly with Amazon Music, Deezer, iHeartRadio, JB Hi-Fi NOW, JUKE, Pandora, Rdio, Rhapsody, SiriusXM, Slacker Radio, Songza, Spotify, Stitcher SmartRadio, Radio by TuneIn, Concert Vault, WiMP, and downloads from any service offering DRM-free tracks. (Service availability varies by region.)
  • Play the music on your computer in any room
    Play music stored on up to 16 PCs, Macs or NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices on your home network, supporting the most popular audio formats, from iTunes to MP3.
  • Stream music from an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
    An analog audio input lets you connect to an external audio source (such as a CD or MP3 player, TV, DVD, VCR, or radio) and play that music or audio on all Sonos players in the system.
  • Easy Internet connectivity for other products in your house
    The PLAY:5 has a two-port Ethernet switch to bring standard Internet connectivity to your set-top box, DVR, PC, game console or NAS drive.

I have 2 Play:5 speakers in my house (one on each of 2 levels).

I love that it was easy to set up (I had purchased a bridge as that was still required at the time), and found it really easy to connect to my music collection stored on a NAS. I use the iOS app to control it and find it to meet my needs (there was a problem with replacing the current queue but the recent app update seems to have corrected that).

Small issue with the iOS app - when you are adding songs to a playlist, it will often take you back to the Sonos home instead of returning you to where you were in browsing music sources. This is an annoyance for me as I have to re-navigate my music library to find where I was as I add songs to be played. It is possible that only some of the options do this (i.e. add to queue vs. play next), but I do not recall the specifics.

One thing that I feel is missing from your product line is a portable speaker - one that has an internal battery and ideally one that is weather proof. There are 2 cases that I am interested in having supported by such a product:

1. Outdoor speakers in my backyard.

2. Being able to take the speaker to a beach, park, etc. and play music from my smart phone. This is a bit of a departure from the standard approach, but could support playing music from a smart phone or tablet.

Overall, I am a really big fan of your product line and would like to see you guys continue to grow and succeed.

Products are used in a fitness centre.
Sound fills the room quite well although lacks serious low end sound.
The big issue is with the play app. The app is very laggy and unreliable, have installed the latest updates etc and still poor performance, need to have a unit that can be played, paused, stopped and music changed. Playlist function is awkward and unreliable. Great concept, but needs more research into the app side.
Purchased 2 Play 5s, one failed within 3 months, unit was replaced without issue, good customer service.

    Comments about Sonos White Play:5 Music System:

    The Sonos system fills the home with great sounding music in any room! We have a Play:5 in our great room and a Play:1 in the office. Both sound wonderful & we are planning to get a Play:3 to complete our home speaker network. It works well and is so easy to set up and use, especially with our iPhones and iPads. We have an extensive music library and the system plays it all!

The only problem I have have is connecting my music library to Sonos. I will be looking into the issue in the near future in order to resolve it.
