Sonos PLAY:5 Wireless Music System, Black

Product information

Undock your iPhone and unlock your music. With the Sonos Play:5 wireless music system and your iPhone, you can enjoy unlimited music, room-filling sound and wireless control. No docking required.

Music, everywhere
Wireless and easy to set up. No need for rewiring. No complex programming. Simply download the free Sonos app and use your home WiFi to listen anywhere in your home without wires.

If you want music in another room, simply add more Sonos players 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.

The PLAY:5 liberates the music on your computer and the Internet so you can play it all over the house. Wherever there’s a player, you can listen to your entire collection of iTunes music, plus thousands of free Internet radio stations. And it works seamlessly with the most popular music services so you can stream millions of songs and stations from the Internet to the rooms of your choice. You can even connect the PLAY:5 to your favourite audio source such as an iPod or CD player and listen on all the Sonos players throughout your house.

Sonos App
Got an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch? Simply download the free Sonos Controller app and turn it into a full-fledged Sonos Controller that works over your home Wi-Fi network. If you want a dedicated controller that everyone in the house can use, the touch screen Sonos Controller 200 is available separately. Got a desktop or laptop? Then use the Sonos Controller for Mac or PC for added control.

Five speakers
The PLAY:5 uses five speakers to deliver superior sound to any room. It 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.

A different song in every room
If you have multiple Sonos players, you can control what music is playing in every room in your house, from anywhere in your house. Sonos Controllers aren’t tied to a specific player, so you can use any controller to control the music and the volume in all your rooms.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product Read all the reviews before purchasing the sonos 5 and it they were not wrong.this is one of my best buys. The sound from this small box is really amazing and it is so easy to set up. I was little bit concerned as I am no expert as regards technology but using the app on my phone was simplicity itself. And I can also stream music that I have on my kindle. I was so impressed I am thinking of buying another sonos 5 so I can have the sound in stereo. 21 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sonos Play:5 Great Sound and Very Easy to Set Up Really like this product because it is easy to access/control from my iPad and my husband is able to access it from his phone just as easily. It is also extremely simple to set up. My only problem is that the wifi connection seems to drop out fairly regularly for very brief periods - probably only 1 or 2 seconds at a time - though potentially this could be a problem with my wifi as opposed to a problem with the Sonos. 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sonos Play 5 Excellent product - great sound. Tested against Bose wifi - Sonos significantly better sound. Wifi set & control very good. Only issue is 65,000 track limitation. 31 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to set up great sound Exactly as expected, simple to set up and simple to use. Great sound quality 31 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Fantastic product! Incredibly easy to set-up with a big sound. I'll be adding to my system soon! 03 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Deezer Re product I love it, however I was ad vised this comes with free Dezzer and tried but this has nor happened 04 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb quality Im very picky when it comes to how things sound, and this completely met my expectations. Price- To be honest its a little on the expensive side, especially as you can get reasonable sounding wireless speakers with bluetooth for far less money. Having said that the quality of the unit is obvious, and there is a 3.5mm input for non sonos controlled music eg. an MP3 player, you can also use a bluetooth audio receiver to add that as an option (not made by sonos). Also for the same money you can get a separates system like a Denon M39 which, when paired with good speakers, will win on sound quality but you then have the hassle of no wireless, many wires trailing about the place etc. Build quality- As I've already mentioned the build of this unit is apparent when you open the box and take it out, reassuringly heavy and make of good quality plastic and metal Sound Quality- For me this is the one that matters most, and where it does best. It sounds far better than something o its size should and really shines, even on streamed music, spotify premium sounds great through it, although the quality is good enough to hear some of the limitations in the way the songs are compressed for streaming. Treble is clear and well detailed, the midrange is crisp, and the bass goes deep rather than just producing a thump, like a lot of systems seem to do, and still retains a refined sound. Ive tried a selection of music through the system and it really is pleasant sounding. Throw a good recording at it and you can hear individual guitar strings being plucked, classical music has a good atmosphere to it with different instruments all being resolved well, and current hits are rhythmic. Finally it is incredibly easy to set up and use via wifi (bridge not needed anymore). Im very pleased with this item and would recommend it to most people in a heartbeat 28 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply awesome Streaming music is new to me, so I have little to compare it to. However, after doing some research including reading these reviews, I jumped in with both feet, buying 2 of these (lounge and bedroom) and a Play 3 (kitchen). The sound quality, for the price and size, is just incredible. If anything, it's a tad on the bassy side for me, preferring my sound a little crisper, but changing the EQ settings I've found a level I'm happy with. I've bought these to replace a Bose Wave system (about the same price# and it blows the Bose out of the water. The controllers #our household has controllers on PC, iPad, Android pad and Android phone# are responsive, intuitive, easy to use, etc. Being able to independently set music levels #volume, EQ) on each speaker - even when they are grouped - is a tremendous benefit. Now I've nearly finished uploading all my CDs to Amazon Cloud, choosing music, creating playlists is a doddle. It's great re-discovering music that I haven't listened to for years and wouldn't possible choose to put on, by adding albums to a playlist and selecting shuffle play. To borrow the words of an earlier reviewer - just buy it! 28 January 2015
