    Desk Stand for Sonos PLAY:5 Smart Wireless Speaker is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super solid in general, but one end cap won't stay attached For a hundred bucks I'd expect the end caps that cover the bolts to stay on. When I opened the box, one of the end caps was rolling around loose. When I attach it, there is no tension to hold it, so it falls right out. I tried to adjust the little teeth to see if I could pull them out a bit, but nope. I'll just have to remember about the end cap if/when I need to move the stand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stand When I purchased the Sonos Gen2 Play 5s (configured in stereo pair w/Sonos Sub) no stands were available. Therefore, I purchased two garden style Marble Top Tables (27.75 H x 10.75 W x 10.75 D / Marble Top 0.5 H x 11 W x 11 D). * By the time Flexson introduced upright stands for the Play 5 Gen2 speaker Id resigned myself to stick with the Marble Top Tables (which my wife liked better anyway). Then I happened upon the Flexson Desk Top Stands for the Sonos Play 5 Gen 2 speaker. IMO they are well built and sturdy. Capable of sustaining the angle you set them to under the weight of a Play 5 Gen2 speaker. They even have a laser cut finish that exposes the aluminum which runs across the leading edge of the base thats about .0125-H that adds a nice accent look. I go back quite a few years to the days when setting a speaker at a slight backward tilt generally improved the sonic performance especially in a soft room (carpeted floors) as I have. The idea was to allow more of the sound to reflect off the ceiling and walls rather than being absorbed by carpet and plush furniture. My vaulted ceilings lend themselves perfectly to that setup. Therefore, I thought to myself that with the Flexon Desk Top Stands for the Play 5 Gen2 speaker I could probably achieve similiar results. Heres how I tested my theory. Know that the results given are by no way scientifically conclusive as my listening environment is not a professional sound stage. I will use the term Noise versus Sonic Clarity to convey a more plausible analogy. I used TruePlay to re-calibrate the Play 5s. After which I cued up East River Drive (ERD) by Stanley Clark on my iPad. I used an iPad App SPLnFFT Sound Meter v6.0 set at db(A) to measure Noise (i.e. harshness) not loud speaker performance or A/B testing. ERD played back without the stands had a peak Noise level of 84db. After placing the Play 5s on the Flexson Desk Top stands with an upward angle adjustment putting the front leading edge of the speaker at a height of 1.0125 inches from the table base I recalibrated the speakers again with TruePlay and cued up ERD by Stanley Clarke. This time the resulting Noise level (at the same volume) was only 79.3db. That suggested that Trueplay had tuned the speakers to a point (using the stands) wherein less sound was absorbed by the carpet allowing the speaker to play with improved Sonics at the same volume. IMO the Play 5's were tuned to play louder before the introduction of the stands to achieve the same results as with the stands. The sound was less harsh. Granted without the SPLnFFT Sound Meter v6.0 I would not have known that the slight improvement in Sonics existed. In this unscientific experiment I have to accept that my music is sounding better with the stands than without. So in conclusion the improvements suggested by Flexson using these stands not withstanding (if youre not using floor stands); you may discover other benefits. Also, IMO they look good with white speakers and the pads will prevent them from marring the speaker finish. I highly recommend you give the Flexson Desktop Stands for the Sonos Play 5 Gen2 speaker a look. * All measurements are in inches.
