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 49 49
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
Intermittent sound loss Good sound but having had this; a Playbar and several Play 1's now for a few months the sound continues to randomly drop out. Contacted customer services, sending a diagnostics report and went through setting it all up again and it worked fine for a few days but then started to cut out. Not what I'd expect giving these are expensive speakers. Disappointing. 14 September 2014
Sonos Play 5 I thought this was very good although quite expensive. 03 September 2014
Excellent Sonos 5 & bridge purchase Decided to buy the Sonos 5 with some trepidation but JL staff talked me through everything I was unsure/concerned about. I got it home and within 20 mins had the unit up and running. Couldn't believe how straight forward it was and such quality. need to save the pennies for a Sonos 1 now!! 10 July 2014
Great products We bought this system for our sons 30th birthday he was delighted. Technology is not my thing but it was so simple to set up and the sound is amazing so versatile. Don't delay if you are thinking of buying its worth every penny. 08 July 2014
Excellent product Installed and working in 3/4 minutes once the Sonos bridge was up and running. It has worked flawlessly thereafter. The sound is clear and the pseudo stereo spread is good. It's fairly middley to my ears but treats most material very well. Very solidly made. Simple but highly effective. 08 July 2014
Somewhat limited functionality. I think I was overwhelmed by the positives - this plays music really well, sounds great and is quite a compact unit. I couldn't connect it by ethernet so had to buy the Sonos bridge which made setting up the wifi easy. Then I realised that, as I'm not likely to buy any more Sonos devices, this configuration was a little over the top. I already have an Apple AirPort Express and didn't want another wifi bridge. It's a pity Sonus can't enable their system to work with the AirPort, or that their mentioned wifi direct connection is not yet available. As usual. John Lewis were very understanding and happily accepted the return - thank you. I've since bought a Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200, which sounds just as good but is more versatile. 08 July 2014
Amazing sound! This is just a brilliant product. The sound is amazing and it's really easy to use. There are loads of different ways to access music using the Sonos controller app. So far, I've only used it to listen to the music I've uploaded or bought on my Google Play account and it all works seamlessly. I can even control the Sonos speaker directly from my Google Play Music App but I generally use the Sonos Controller App as it's so easy to use. I was slightly concerned in case I would get drop outs when listening to music over WiFi but I've not experienced any so far. It really does make all those hours spent uploading my CDs into the cloud seem worthwhile as I can now listen to my whole library at a touch of a button. 03 June 2014
