Special offer

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

Sonos PLAY:5 Wireless Music System 4.6 5 56 56
Wow Really impressive and so easy to set up using an iPad. Sound quality is excellent. 24 December 2014
Very Good I bought this two days ago and was so impressed I went back to JL today to purchase two Play 1's. I've been using a Bose Soundlink Air for the last couple of years, via iTunes and AirPlay. That suffered from regular drops in connection, often unable to wake iTunes and long delays when changing volume, connecting to other speakers etc. (mainly Apple/iTunes issues) and has just stopped being able to find and connect to any wi-fi networks. The Play:5 has been very stable, it's even easier to set up than Apple products (which are simple anyway) and sounds good (not comparing to "proper" audio systems, which I don't own). I'm already thinking of what Sonos products to buy next!! 22 December 2014
Wonderful I have now had this product for a year and it will most probably be accompanied by another one. The set up is super simple - I think it took me longer to take the product out of the box than to set it up! We dont have a controller, but use the apps on our phone. From time to time they do update (they have updated it four times since we have had it). The app allows you to play your spotify list and has its own radio stations which is great. The sound quality is great - if there is something that could be improved, it is that the sound quality does deteriorate when you are playing the music super loud (I occasionally do when no one is around). As mentioned above, I will be buying another one soon for another room. 13 December 2014
Great background speaker Sonos 5 is significantly better than 1 or 3, but keep your own speakers and add a Connect or Connect Amp if you are passionate about your music. One star kept back because: 1/ No off switch (and we are supposed to be "Green" these days; right?), 2/ No App for Windows Mobile and 3/ Not quite a Bose Wave, but it is very good. Set up is a dream, software for the Windows PC is much better than the Android App. Very pleased with my purchase (and the Connect AMP I bouight), and that I didn't bother with the Sonos 1. 30 November 2014
Great sound I recently purchased a Sonos 5 for the lounge. My first Sonos purchase was a Playbar which has terrific sound. I have a Sonos 3 in the kitchen which also has fantastic sound. The Sonos 5 is a great addition to my audio equipment. Although expensive Sonos is worth every penny. I would thoroughly recommend Sonos if you are thinking of buying audio equipment. 16 November 2014
great product bought this for my son's 30th birthday really easy to set up and the sound is great he was made up with it and want a sonos 1 for Christmas. 05 November 2014
Brilliant I bought this for my boyfriend's birthday. We are already planning which Sonos to add to it! The sales assistant in JL Bristol was really really helpful and made sure I understood the system and what it could do, demo-ing the app etc. Went in to buy the 3, came out with the 5!!! 31 October 2014
Couldn't be easier My wife bought me the Sonos Play5 and Bridge for my birthday. It looks great in white and the sound quality is excellent. Setting it up couldn't be easier. From opening the boxes to listening to music on my IPad took less than ten minutes. The Play5 is highly portable and I am now able to listen to music in any room in the house using the Sonos controller app on my IPad. 15 October 2014
