Sonos Black Play:5 Music System, Model PLAY5US1BLK

Previously known as Sonos S5, SONOS PLAY:5 is the original, bigger room, all-in-one Sonos player that’s a powerhouse of sound. With five integrated speakers and five digital amps, PLAY:5 streams all the music on earth wirelessly in any room. Control with free apps for your Android™ smartphone, iPhone® or iPad®. The Play:5 is available in both black and white.

Features:

  • Crystal-clear, room-filling sound
    The Play:5 is a high-performance wireless music system with 2 tweeters, 2 mid-range drivers and 1 subwoofer driver for bass you can feel. Each speaker is powered by a dedicated digital amplifier (5 in all) and optimized to deliver accurate tonal balance and deep bass. The Play:5’s all digital sound architecture provides precise sound reproduction, just as the artist intended. And 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.
  • Convenient, all-in-one solution
    The Play:5 is a complete wireless music system that works wherever you want music. No need to connect to speakers or audio equipment. Just plug it in and enjoy. Want music in another room? Simply add more Play:5s to your house without adding wires. And when the party moves outside or to another room, just pick up the Play:5 with the convenient, built-in handle and take the music with you.
  • Instant access to endless music
    Sonos liberates the music on the Internet, your computer and more, so you can wirelessly play it all over the home. Wherever there’s an Play:5 (or any other ZonePlayer), you can tune in to 100,000 Internet radio stations, shows and podcasts and stream millions of songs and stations from the most popular online music services. Plus, you can play your entire personal music library, like iTunes®, in any or every room. You can even connect to your favorite audio source, such as an Apple AirPort Express®, CD player or TV and listen on all the ZonePlayers throughout your home.
  • Control it all with your favorite mobile devices…and more
    Wirelessly control all your music and all your ZonePlayers with your choice of Sonos Controllers. Got an Android™ smartphone, iPhone®, iPod touch®, or iPad™? Then, simply download one of the free Sonos Controller apps and take control with the mobile device you already have and love. Want a dedicated Controller that everyone in the home can use? Grab the touch screen Sonos Controller 200 and pick a room, find a song and touch play. Got a desktop or laptop? Then use the Sonos Controller for Mac or PC for added control. They all work together seamlessly so mix and match to your heart’s content.
  • Best-in-class wireless technology for multi-room music
    The Play:5 brings great sounding music wirelessly to any room in your house, without a big wiring project. SonosNet 2.0, our wireless mesh network technology, provides superior wireless range for whole-house coverage, ensures synchronous music playback, and avoids sources of wireless interference. Which means the music gets to all the right rooms — near or far — at exactly the right time.
  • Simple setup & expansion
    Setting up your Play:5 is incredibly easy — simply plug it in. No technical or wiring expertise required. No speakers or audio equipment to connect. All you need is a high-speed Internet connection and a router to get started. One ZonePlayer or ZoneBridge in your system must be connected to the router and all the rest will work wirelessly. Add more Play:5s in more rooms without wires.
  • New features and music services with automatic updates
    Unlike most other consumer electronic products, the Play:5 and the entire Sonos system keep getting better even after you buy it. With free automatic software updates you’ll always have the newest features and music services to enjoy. Just register your system and Sonos will automatically notify you when software updates are available. Simply press one button and your system updates itself.

best investment i've ever made

I read somewhere that a high percentage of Sonos customers will buy additional units within 30 days of their initial setup. I'm part of that statistic.

I started with 2 Play5s and a Bridge. Within about 2 weeks, I had another Play5, a 120 and the iPod dock. I have zero regrets about the purchase price.. as a matter of fact, I'd have no problem buying more but I don't have any rooms left where I want music!

The iPad app has a slot in the dock so the controller is always at my fingertips. The iOS apps are the main way I control the system because they're the handiest (always close by) There are a lot of "little" things in the app that show that Sonos pays attention to detail such as individual volume controls which automatically pop up when you touch the volume slider (and you have units grouped). If you have an iOS/Android device, you do not need Sonos' dedicated remote.

I was a victim of the OSX Lion bug and signed up to test the latest version of the desktop player. I have to say their QA group is on top of things. I was very impressed with their professionalism and technical savvy. I got very fast responses to my questions (even late at night when you'd think most places would be closed). They really seem to care about their customers and their product.

The apology to customers and explanation of the Lion problem was an example of what EVERY company should do when they break something. They provided an explanation of the problem and updated status of their progress towards the fix.

For those of you thinking about the purchase (I thought about it for about a year before taking the plunge). I say don't wait. Sonos gives you a generous 45 day trial period. You have nothing to lose.

Notes:
The components are expensive, but you get what you pay for. I regret not trying the system sooner

Since purchasing the system, I've bought a paid Pandora account, and subscribed to Spotify for a year. I also spent the better part of an afternoon re-encoding my CDs at a higher bitrate. Partially for Sonos but mostly for these new earphones I got.

Each unit has an ethernet port(s) on the back (which really isn't necessary for the system to function), so you can use Sonos to extend your network to devices which don't have built in wireless. A VERY nice extra feature since Sonos seems to have better single propagation than my own router. The DVR in the bedroom is now on the network thanks to Sonos.

The built in alarm is also a nice add on - I wake up to BBC News every morning, at the same time the unit in the kitchen starts playing some jazz to listen to with my coffee.

There's a headphone in jack on the Play5s as well, so you can use a portable music player to stream contents throughout the house by plugging it into one of the units.

I bought a refurb iPod Classic to keep in the Sonos dock at all times. It serves as a backup of my entire music library, PLUS it gives me a way to listen to protected content (audiobooks) over Sonos.

My only complaint is there is no way for Sonos to play protected content w/o an iPod physically connected to the system.

I'd also like to see more options to refresh the music library, why is it limited to once daily? I download lots of podcasts and have to manually update Sonos so I can listen to them.

Keep up the good work you guys! Any plans for a battery operated weather proof unit for outdoor use? Built in AirPlay would also solve the DRM problem, no?

Love your product and tried many over systems.

One thing to really improve THE APP :)

1) Multi user -> I have a fantastic girl friend and she can't access her @spotify playlist if she's home listening music via my account waiting me coming back from the office - and this means I can't listen music in the office etc...

We have the same issue in our open space office 9 people and we have to link the account of one guy :(

2) Create a way to share from any sound source of my computer -> like Airfoil for airport express (means i can play youtube, and other services like shuffler or we are hunted etc...)

3) Integrate Spotify Apps in the Sonos app.

A lot of work but yes I love your product and I will soon buy another one... :)
Let me know what you think Sonos gang!
Cheers, O.

            My family and I have really enjoy the clarity of the music stations we listen to. The customization is unlimited. The updates on sound control are helpful. I am anticipating what new Sonos equipment to add to my collection. Currenlty we have a bridge with 1 play 3 and 2 play 5.

            The only real frustration has been the connectivity of remote control from my iPhone. I have continually had to reset it because of loss of signal even after tech support has guided me to work on settings. The convenience of remote control is essential.

              Love that I can control music from multiple sources and move speakers wherever i am "puttering" - garage, yard... Play 3 is smaller and they are the ones I move around from place to place while I leave the Play 5 stationary in the living room. It is a must to have the music loud enough to drown out my singing : )
