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.

I came across Sonos while researching whole house music options at CNET. I am building a house and choose Sonos as the best and most flexible choice for our family's needs. I have tested and used the zone player 120 (with in-ceiling speakers not yet in the ceiling) and the S5. I don't know what audiophile quality sounds like but I do believe that the sound that I have heard from the zone player and S5 is great, solid sound. On top of the great sound is an easy set-up, intuitive and effortless control via the controller 200 and listening options that will blow your mind. The S5 is a good option for a single room, shelf system or a portable option. Sonos reminds me of Apple; they keep getting it right.

This product is great for listening to online radio, having multiple household members queue music they want to listen to. It's easy to setup, though requires internet connection. However, if you're looking for a quality sound system, get something audiophiles recognize, like Bose speakers. The quality of the sound is average. The speakers are overpriced for the quality of the sound it produces. It's fun to play with initially, but if you're an audiophile, this product isn't worth it in the long run. I wouldn't buy these speakers again if I got another opportunity. Save the money and get a better set of speakers audiophiles recognize.

                      I researched wireless speaker products to put in my new sunroom that I could also move to other rooms. The deal with the free bridge was too good to pass up.

                      This device easily integrated with my Mac desktop, my ITouch and my wife's IMac. All of my ITunes songs were easily recognized by the SONOS and once I told it to do so, the software updates the SONOS from my ITunes library automatically every day!

                      I have dazzled my friends by controlling the SONOS from my ITouch while in other rooms.

                      P.S. I auditioned all three units. they are all good, but the extra few bucks for the SONOS 5 are worth it for the incremental value of the added features relative to the SONOS 3.
