Sonos PLAY:5 overview

  • 1Description

Listen to music from virtually any source with the black Sonos PLAY:5 Smart Wireless Speaker. It will stream wirelessly from most online music services and radio stations, as well as your digital music library through your home network. It also has an ⅛" input to connect a wired audio source. The PLAY:5 can wirelessly connect to an additional PLAY:5 to create true stereo sound, or to even more Sonos speakers to create a wireless home theater setup. The speakers can be controlled via nearly any wireless device or computer, and includes an Ethernet cable.

Six Speakers Powered by Six Dedicated Digital Amplifiers
The PLAY:5 uses six digital amplifiers individually coupled with six speakers to deliver sound to any room. Each instrument, voice, and detail shines through, pure and precise, with distinct clarity and zero audible distortion.
Class-D Amplifiers
Lightweight amplifiers are powerful and energy-efficient in standby and in use.
Three tweeters create a crisp and accurate high-frequency response.
Three dedicated mid-woofers are designed to ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments, while also delivering a deep, rich bass.
Stereo Pair
Turn two PLAY:5s into separate left and right channel speakers to create wider, bigger, and deeper sound.
5.1 Home Theater
Add two PLAY:5 speakers to a PLAYBAR and SUB for a true surround sound experience.
All-Digital Sound Architecture
All filter settings, active equalization, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through DSP circuitry, so there's no loss of audio quality or energy.
Adjustable Bass and Treble
Optimize sound performance using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms.
Trueplay Tuning
Trueplay measures the acoustics in any room - analyzing things like size, layout and furnishings. It then fine-tunes your PLAY:5 for optimal sound, no matter where you place your speaker.
Pre-Loaded Internet Radio Stations, Free of Charge
Get over 100,000 free radio stations, shows, and podcasts, all for free. And you can tune in without turning on your computer: browse for stations, or type in specific call letters or a radio host you love.
Endless Music From the Most Popular Online Music Services
Sonos works seamlessly with Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, TuneIn, SiriusXM, Google Play Music, SoundCloud, Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, Rhapsody, Rdio, Qobuz, Tidal, and more, plus downloads from any service offering DRM-free tracks. Service availability varies by region.
Computer-Free Music Playback
Get instant access to millions of songs and thousands of radio stations without ripping, downloading, or even turning on a computer. Sonos connects directly to these services over the Internet and then streams the music to the rooms of your choice.
Play the Music From Your Computer in Any Room
Play music stored on up to 16 Windows computers, Macs, or NAS (network attached storage) devices on your home network, supporting the most popular audio formats, from iTunes to MP3.
Stream Music From an iOS Device
Sonos wirelessly plays your iTunes music, direct from your iOS device, to any room in your home.
Play Music and Audio From a CD or MP3 Player, TV, and More Throughout the Home
An analog audio input lets you connect to an external audio source (such as a CD or MP3 player, TV, DVD, VCR, or radio) and play that music or audio on all Sonos players in the system.
Easy Internet Connectivity for Other Products in Your House
When wirelessly connected to a BRIDGE, BOOST, or another player, you can use the Ethernet port on the back of your PLAY:5 to bring standard Internet connectivity to your set-top box, DVR, PC, game console or network hard drive.
Top-Panel Controls
The PLAY:5's touch interface is a simple, convenient way to control your music right from the speaker. Just tap for volume up/down and swipe for next/previous track.
Rubber Feet
Place the PLAY:5 on any kind of surface in your home without fear of scratches or scrapes.
Humidity Resistant
Designed to withstand high humidity, such as in a bathroom with a running shower. The PLAY:5 is not waterproof or water resistant.
Control All Your Music and Rooms with your Android or iOS Device
Free Sonos Controller apps for Android, iPhone, and iPad let you control your Sonos players, music on the Internet and your computer right from the palm of your hand. Download the apps for free on the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
Integrated, Multi-Room Control
If you have multiple music players, you can control what's playing in any room 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.
Find and Play Your Favorite Songs in an Instant
Search for songs and stations, choose the music, and control the volume from anywhere in your home.
Wireless Connectivity
Android devices, iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad connect to your Sonos system through your home Wi-Fi network. The PLAY:5 can go anywhere, delivering music to any room in your house, wirelessly. Players and Controllers establish their own secure wireless mesh network that delivers the extensive range and performance you need to get music all over your house.
Includes Sonos Controller for Mac or Windows
Turn any Mac or Windows desktop or laptop computer in your home into a Controller. The software is included for free with every Sonos component.
Play a Different Song in Every Room at the Same Time
Tune in to an Internet radio station in the bedroom, stream a music service in the kitchen, and play a song from your music library in the living room - simultaneously.
Listen to the Same Song in Every Room
Play the same song in different rooms, simultaneously, without echoes or delays. Add or drop rooms from your room grouping and still be in sync.
Simple Setup
No technical or wireless expertise required. Put a PLAY:5 in any room where you want music and connect it to your home Wi-Fi network using the free Sonos Controller App. The Sonos System Setup software provides simple on-screen prompts on any Sonos CONTROL. With the touch of a few buttons, you'll be play music all over the house in minutes.
Expandable Wireless System

    Sonos PLAY:5 reviews

    PLAY:5 Smart Wireless Speaker (Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing audio system WE like the rich sound of the Play 5. (We had originally bought a Play 3 and returned it to B&H. The difference in sound quality between the Play 3 and Play 5 is significant. We have Sonos Sound Bardrs and Play 5s in each room of our place. The Sonos app is easy to use. We often group the speakers and can walk from room-to-room while still listening. The Play 5 had a 3.5mm input jack so we can plug in our iPad and listen to audio books as we roam the house. (Any app, such as Kindle that produces sound in the pad can play through the Sonos speakers this way, not just the Pandora, Amazon Prime and iTunes that the Slnos supports through wifi.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hottest Sound in Town Purchased two of the Sonos Play 5 wifi speakers - one for the family room and one for the dining/living room. Rather than installing hard wired speakers throughout the house at an enormous expense, we decided to try these out. Wow!! The Sonos Play 5 speakers are some of the best sounding speakers I have ever owned! They have a deep, rich sound that fills the rooms they're located in. Love the installed computer app that controls the speakers. It is easy to use and gives me all the choices I already had for music - my music library, radio, and music service. I haven't found one bad feature in their operation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wayyyy Cool I needed to replace an old receiver with large speakers in a family room that was just too large for the space. Enter Sonos. In one speaker that sits nicely on a lower shelf of a corner cabinet, I get great sound with an all-in-one device. Setting up was easy and it immediately recognized my WiFi router, and I was able to download the Sonos app on my iPad to control it. Easy peasy. The thing to understand about this device is that it is for streaming, like a Roku or Apple TV for music. So you have to get Pandora or Spotify or some other music service. Local radio stations work through Radio by Tunein, which is free, including our local NPR station. I can see adding other smaller Sonos devices to other rooms in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos + Tuneplay = Great I replaced two excellent bookshelf speakers with one Play 5. It's a pretty big room and I was sure I would not be satisfied with just one speaker and was prepared to get a second Play 5 when I could afford it! I am delighted to say that the Play 5 is absolutely up to the task. I don't plan to play more that background music in that room but I cranked it up pretty loud and it sounded great. Used the new Tuneplay procedure on it and on my other Sonos speakers in kitchen and bedroom and I think it improves the sound quality noticably. I am totally pleased and loving Sonos.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good up to a point I have my original bookshelf speakers and sub connected to a Connect/Amp This works very well and we enjoy the wireless aspect of the system. I needed this speaker to fill in sound on the other side of a free standing fireplace separating a large open-concept space. It works well for that. Connection was quick and easy and the ability to group and therefore balance the sound of this speaker with the main speakers works well. My complaint is the truesound feature. Yes its cool but to what end? In my case it reported little change. I would give Sonos 5 stars on everything except for one glaring decision they clearly have made which is to NOT give us a multi-band sound equalizer. The true sound feature is wasted technology and cost in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Wireless Speakers Anywhere I am a non-technical "old guy" who lives in a condo building.� Running speaker wire is impossible without it being visible, so wireless was the way to go.� My research confirmed Sonos as the best wireless speakers on the market.� I purchased one Play 5 and two Play 3's.� When they arrived, I literally plugged them in, downloaded the Sonos ap, and followed the VERY simple instructions.� I was listening to high quality digital music in less then twenty minutes!� Sonos wireless speakers are expensive, but well worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is really good This creates a room filling sound in our open space living/dining/kitchen. I am tempted to pair with another one as stereo. This one has a line option to connect to a bluetooth transmitter so one could also listen music from Sonos app with a headphone. Sonos should make the line option standard on all models. I was going to get a Play 1 but not until Sonos will make line option on that Also Sono app does not support YT Music app yet. Interesting that your phone can cast a Sonos playlist to your home theater setup using Chrome Audio Sonos support is very prompt if tweet to them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent update on an excellent product. Sonos hit all the right details in this product revision. Not only does it improve device performance, this speaker sounds fantastic at this price point, it is gorgeous. If you are waiting to invest in Sonos, this is a great place to start.
