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 83 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product but not hifi We bought this product plus a Boost to use in our house in France. Because of our location, we had a few set-up problems but we can honestly say that we have never come across a help desk as professional or as effective as the Sonos one. Endlessly patient and highly knowledgeable, they sorted the whole thing out for us. However, some reviewers have said that the Sonos system is not hifi. This is true but nor does it claim to be! We now have both - a much-loved hifi set-up that has been developed over the years and that cost lots and the Sonos streaming system. In their own ways, each gives fantastic pleasure. 29 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sonos Play 5 Brilliant! Will be purchasing other Sonos speakers to add to the network soon. 11 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product - Worth time & patients to set up Open the box, plug it in and away you go! Well, not quite..... Download software from Sonos, laptop (windows 7) and Iphone 4 Follow instructions to the letter. Once connected you won't regret your purchase. Sounds great, your complete music collection available anytime from the comfort of your sofa. 100s of radio stations available. I'm so impressed I plan on purchasing 2nd Sonos 5 within next month. 06 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sonos Play 3 Wireless Music system Changed from Play 1 system to Play 3 in order to give a a more rounded Home Theatre system. sound i think these Sonos Players are excellent in the sound that they produce both for watching TV and playing streamed music. A rich well rounded sound system and one which enriches music and cinema-at-home viewing. 28 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant sound This was so easy to set up, and the sound is amazing. I looked around before purchasing this, considered the beautiful looking olufson and bang speaker but the sound from this is as good if not better, and I can link it to other speakers in the future. Pricey but you get what you pay for. My husband loves it ... It was for him really 15 July 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Poor sound quality We were planning to buy several of these units to be able to listen to music throughout the house. This first purchase was a trial run. Having compared the sound from this machine against our other hi-fi equipment, we abandoned that idea! It was also very fiddly to set up. It has, however, got a useful sleep function, so we are keeping the unit to play piano music to help us get to sleep at night. 14 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by SONOS 5 Very pleased with speaker. Easy to set up and delivers good sound. What's not m entioned is that you need to subscribe to Spotify premium to use with SONOS. There is also a lot of music that will not be available from your I tune collection although this is an issue with Apple not Sonos. 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic system Sonos does everything I wanted (and didn't expect to find) the set up is so easy, I have access to my music library on my laptop - I store all my CDs on there - and now have a fantastic sound system to play the music anywhere I choose, the speaker needs a power input but that is all the rest is wireless. Brilliant, highly recommend and I will be adding more speakers to fill the house with music. 02 July 2015
