Product Description


PLAY:5 | The ultimate all-in-one listening experience with deep, rich HiFi sound.

The PLAY:5 provides crystal-clear, high quality sound that rivals much larger, more complicated systems. With 5 state-of-the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with 5 speakers, the PLAY:5 delivers superior sound in any room. A subwoofer produces powerful bass while two mid-range drivers and two tweeters fill out the sound. Additionally, a line-in lets you connect other sound sources.

Sonos offers two wireless options to ensure rock-solid performance for every setup. Connect your Sonos speakers on your home WiFi network or connect directly to your router to create a dedicated wireless network when your WiFi signal isn't reliable.

Sonos Play 5
Start with any Sonos speaker.

Sonos Play 5
Connect to your home WiFi network using the free Sonos app.

If your home WiFi isn't reliable, connect the Sonos BRIDGE, BOOST, or any other Sonos speaker to your router to launch a dedicated network.

Sonos Play 5
Enjoy music in every room, in perfect sync

What is Sonos?

Sonos Play 5

How it works

Sonos is a system of HiFi wireless speakers and audio components. It unites your digital music collection in one app that you control from any device. Play what you want in every room over a dedicated wireless network. Sonos speakers work together to ensure rock-solid wireless performance, with no skips, delays, or drops.

Go wireless

Perfect sync

Build a house of sound, one room at a time. Play different music in any room or the same song everywhere, in perfect sync. Sonos speakers can talk to each other to stay in perfect sync--even on WiFi.

Powerful mesh network

Sonos offers an exceptionally powerful dedicated wireless network for music, and it gets stronger every time you add a speaker.

Play your iTunes library, listen to your online music services, and get access to thousands of free radio stations worldwide.

Control every room, from any device

Powerful app with free updates

Different music sources from one app combined with complete multi-room capabilities so you can listen to your entire world of music in every room of your home. Compatible with Android, iPad, iPhone, Mac and PC devices. Sonos offers free software updates regularly to make your system feel brand new, even if you bought your speakers five years ago.

Easier than ever

Rock solid wireless, in any situation

PLAY:5 doesn't need a BRIDGE to connect to your home WiFi. If you've got great WiFi at home, simply buy any Sonos speaker and set it up on your home WiFi network using the free Sonos controller app. If your home WiFi network just isn't reliable enough, get the Sonos BRIDGE to make sure the music never stops.

    OMG!! My old system of stacks had died and I literally spent months researching various options to replace my old faithful. I liked the idea that the Sonos system would stream anywhere in the house and even play different music in different rooms, which would mean my wife could enjoy something different in one room while I was listening to something else in another room. But I must admit I was wary, technology and I are not terribly compatible, idiot proof usually makes me feel like... Well, an idiot!

    All things carefully considered I decided to take the plunge and attempt to move with the times, after all I have a pretty extensive digital music library. I ordered a bridge and a Play 5. My order arrived swiftly and I downloaded the Sonos App, plugged everything in and... Nothing! The App repeatedly told me there was no Sonos system to connect to and I was left feeling like the afore mentioned techno idiot! After much messing about I decided to skip the bridge and connected directly to the Play 5 by plugging it straight into the router. Techno idiot no more! The sound was amazing, I was completely blown away.

    The next day I phoned Sonos Support and explained my problem with the bridge. I have to say the Sonos Support Team are second to none, friendly, helpful, and the patience of saints - taking into account they were dealing with Techno Idiot! The bridge required a factory reset and a software upgrade which got everything going. Then they transferred my entire music library to the bridge for me, no short task. After an hour on the phone the system was up and running beautifully and I was in seventh heaven. An hour later the system crashed!

    After looking at all sorts of options for streaming my music I settled on this.
    I pulled the wireless bridge (sold seperately) out of the box, attached it to my router and plugged it in.
    Next I plugged the play 5 in.
    Next I downloaded the Sonos app from the AppStore to my iPad.
    Next I opened the app and clicked on setup system.
    Next I selected to add a component and held the button down on the wireless bridge for a few seconds.
    Next I selected to add another component and pressed the buttons down on the play 5 for a few seconds and it connected.
    The system is now fully set up. It just works. If I want to put up to 32 speakers in the house all I have to do is press add component, and hold down the button on the unit.
    However you then want to get music onto it. I have Spotify premium ( 9.99 a month but so worth it) and so selected Spotify, entered my password and username and it works. Streaming millions of songs, instantly in 320k quality.
    I could set it to share all my music on the computer in iTunes. All you have to do is click on the cog on The Sonos app, then on shares and select the public folder on the computer.
    However, instead I bought a WD Mybook Live, plugged it into my router, copied the music to that and shared that folder in Sonos and it just plays it straight off this Nas drive.
    The sound quality on the Play 5 is lovely. I upped the bass 2 notches and treble about 5 notches on the Sonos equaliser app. Sound is clear, nicely balanced and very detailed- this is top quality kit and the sound fills the average UK lounge no problem.
    Apple could have made this kit- does not really need instructions, very well made, and again, it just works.
    You get what you pay for.

    OK I think on balance, taking into account all the reviews, we can take it as a given that the Sonos S5 is something quite special. While I cannot disagree with the consensus of opinion why have I given it 4 stars instead of 5?

    In a word RELIABILITY. I live in an average house in average conditions with no children and yet on three occasions have had to have replacement Sonos components within the guarantee period. This is too frequent an occurrence to be bad luck.

    The first S5 suddenly lost its ability to produce any bass response within the first 6 months. After the usual factory reset it still failed to perform so I had to invoke a replacement unit within the warranty period.

    The second problem occurred with the very expensive Sonos controller which developed a touch-screen fault. Part of the display failed to respond to touch commands. Once again I had to request a replacement.

    The third occasion was the same problem as the first - the sudden inability to produce a bass response after 10 months of working flawlessly. This time the problem was suffered by my other S5 unit, located in a different part of the house and was purchased at a different retailer from the first.

    So in summary - out of 4 Sonos components only the ZoneBridge has not let me down. Not a good track record is it?

    These days manufacturers have their products 'Made in China' purely because it is cheaper and it vastly increases their profit margin. Unfortunately in my experience components have a much higher tendency to break down be it intermittent electrical faults, failure of rechargeable batteries or transformer failures. They just don't have the longevity expected of them.
