Our take on the Sonos PLAY:5

by Tara W.
Sonos

All the music you want — anywhere in your home

Sonos® systems let you tap into music from your personal collection and from the Internet, anywhere in your house. The compact Sonos PLAY:5 makes it easy to get started or add an additional room — it's a self-contained music system with built-in speakers. You'll get top-notch, room-filling sound from a player that easily fits on a counter in the kitchen or an end table in the living room. The PLAY:5 teams up five drivers — two tweeters, two midranges and a subwoofer — with five tailor-matched amplifiers to deliver full-bodied, lifelike sound.

Exceptionally easy multi-room music

Sonos makes setup easy

Place Sonos music players like the PLAY:5 in every room where you want to listen to music. The players connect to your home network — either via Wi-Fi® or by connecting one player to your router via Ethernet to create a dedicated Sonos network. This network, known for its extensive range and superior performance, gives you house-wide access to tunes stored on your PC along with a wealth of Internet audio choices. (We recommend adding the Sonos BRIDGE to connect all players to your network wirelessly.)



Sonos controllers

You probably already own a Sonos controller

You can use an iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad®, or Android™ phone to control any and all Sonos players. A free download turns your smartphone and tablet into a full-fledged Sonos controller. Easily navigate and search through playlists and tracks stored on your computer, or select an Internet radio station. Create customized playlists on the fly for individual rooms or for playback over your entire Sonos system. You can also mute or adjust the volume of each of your players.


Rhapsody®, Pandora® Internet radio, SiriusXM, and more at your fingertips

The Sonos system works seamlessly with a host of Internet-based digital music services, including Rhapsody, Pandora, Spotify, Napster®, and SiriusXM Internet Radio. Rhapsody offers instant access to millions of songs and ad-free radio stations through your Sonos Controller. SIRIUS Internet Radio gives you access to over 80 channels of programming. Every Sonos system includes free 30-day trials of these two services, so you can start listening the moment you take it out of the box. Pandora creates customized Internet radio streams just for you — all you have to do is enter the name of your favorite song or artist. And because Sonos connects directly to the Internet for all of these music services, you don't even have to turn on your PC.

Play music stored on your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®

Sonos now gives you convenient wireless access to music and podcasts stored in the Music app of iOS devices, for playback throughout your entire Sonos system. This function works on devices running iOS6 or later (see below for full list of compatible Apple devices). The system even lets you connect multiple Apple players at once. For instance, you can queue up songs from your iPhone to play in the kitchen while you cook, and your spouse can stream a podcast in the den at the same time.


Expand your Sonos system

You can have up to 32 Sonos music players in your system, and each one can play an independent selection of individual tracks or playlists. Listen to jazz in the den while your spouse plays rock music in the kitchen, or pump a single playlist of songs throughout the entire house during a party.

Connections

Sonos Music System

Two Ways to Connect Wirelessly: The Sonos Play:5 brings great sounding music wirelessly to any room in your house, without a big wiring project through SonosNet or WiFi.

  • SonosNet Wireless Mesh Network: SonosNet, a proprietary wireless mesh network technology, provides superior wireless range for whole-house coverage, ensures synchronous music playback, and avoids sources of wireless interference. The transmitting range of the Play:5's built-in wireless system is approximately 100', depending upon your home's layout. In addition to the Play:5, you will need a Sonos Bridge (sold separately) connected to your network router/modem via a Ethernet cable.
  • WiFi Wireless Network: The Sonos Play:5 can also operate over your home's existing WiFi network (802.11 b/g; 2.4GHz). Because you are connecting wirelessly to your home's existing WiFi network, you do not need to hardwire a Sonos Bridge to your router/modem. The Play:5's range will be dependent on your home's existing WiFi network. Play:5 devices manufactured after March 2014 are loaded with the proper firmware and ready to go out of the box for WiFi connectivity. All PLAY:5 devices manufactured prior to that date will require a first wire connection to facilitate a firmware upgrade and  hereafter they will be able to work over WiFi.
Note: You cannot connect the Play:5 via both SonoNet and WiFi; you will need to choose one. Sonos recommends using its proprietary SonosNet wireless mesh network over WiFi when applicable. SonosNet will provide a more secure wireless connection with fewer interruptions for optimum performance. WiFi is subject to greater interference from other WiFi and 2.4GHz devices on your network. WiFi connectivity is not compatible with 5GHz and N routers (you will have to use SonosNet in this case).

Multi-Zone Compatibility: You can place a PLAY:5 in each zone where you want to listen to music. The Sonos Digital Music System can accept up to 32 Sonos players. With multiple zones, you can play the same or different songs in different rooms. The PLAY:5 can be combined with other Sonos components; including the Play:5 or PLAY:3 amplified wireless music players, ZP120 amplified zone player, and ZP90 zone player.

Music Streaming Services: The Sonos PLAY:5 gives you access to unlimited music; such as your iTunes library, your favorite music services, and thousands of Internet radio stations, shows, and podcasts.

  • Pre-Loaded Internet Radio: The Sonos PLAY:5 includes TuneIn, an Internet Radio Service, that provides immediate access to 100,000 Internet radio stations and broadcast programs. You can easily find radio stations from all over the world broadcasting music, news, and variety programming, including archived shows and podcasts.
  • Online Music Services: The Sonos PLAY:5 works seamlessly with 7Digital, Amazon Cloud Player, AUPEO!, DAR.fm, Hearts of Space, iHeartRadio, Murfie, Pandora, Rdio, Rhapsody, SiriusXM Internet Radio, Slacker Radio, Songza, Spotify, Stitcher, & Wolfgang's Vault, plus downloads from any service offering DRM-free tracks (service availability varies by region). Check out the Sonos website for the latest online music services. (Some online services require a paid subscription.)
  • Music Library: The PLAY:5 supports playback of music from any computer or network-attached storage (NAS) device on your home network where you have shared music folders. The PLAY:5 can play music stored on up to 16 PCs, Macs or NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices on your home network, supporting the most popular audio formats. The PLAY:5 indexes your music folders so you can view your music collection by categories (such as artists, albums, composers, genres, or tracks). The PLAY:5 supports the following audio file formats - MP3 (compressed), WMA (compressed), AAC (MPEG4), iTunes, Ogg Vorbis, Audible (format 4), Apple Lossless, FLAC (lossless), WAV (uncompressed), and AIFF (uncompressed).
  • iTunes Music: The Sonos PLAY:5 supports the playback of music and playlists managed with your iTunes account (playlists are limited to 40,000 tracks). The PLAY:5 can access your iTunes music files from your network computer or directly from your Apple iPod iOS device (4.0+) running the Sonos Controller app.

Sonos Controller: The Sonos PLAY:5 allows you to control its audio setup, playback functions, and search features through the Sonos Controller software for Windows and Mac computers, or from the Sonos Controller app for Apple iOS and Android devices. You'll have access to thousands of pre-loaded nternet radio stations, dozens of online music services, your iTunes music, and your network music library; all from one control app on your computer/laptop or smartphone/tablet.

  • Sonos Controller for Windows/Mac: The Sonos Controller software allows you to control the Sonos PLAY:5 from your computer. Simply download the Sonos Controller software from the Sonos website onto your Windows PC or Mac computer. The Sonos Controller software is compatible with Windows XP (SP3), Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Macintosh OS X (10.6 or higher) operating systems.
  • Sonos Controller for Apple iOS/Android: You can also wirelessly control the Sonos PLAY:5 from your Apple iOS device (4.0+) or Android smartphone/tablet (2.1+) running the Sonos Controller App from the iTunes App Store or Google Play Store.

Note: The Sonos PLAY:5, computer, and Apple iOS/Android device must be connected to the same home network.

Home Network Requirements: To access Internet music services, Internet radio, and any digital music stored on your computer or Network-Attached Storage (NAS) device, your home network must meet the following requirements:

  • High-speed DSL/Cable modem, or fiber-to-the-home broadband connection for proper playback of Internet-based music services. If your Internet service provider only offers Satellite Internet access, you may experience playback issues due to fluctuation in download rates.
  • If your modem is not a modem/router combination and you want to take advantage of Sonos' automatic online updates, or stream music from an Internet-based music service, you must install a router in your home network. If you don't have a router, you will need to purchase and install one before setting up your system.
  • If you are going to use a Sonos controller application on an Android smartphone, iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or other tablet, you will need a wireless router in your home network.
  • Connect at least one Sonos component to your home network router using an Ethernet cable, and then you can add other Sonos components wirelessly. Or setup your Sonos component wirelessly via WiFi without any hardwire connection.
  • For best results, you should connect the computer or NAS drive that contains your personal music library collection to your home network router using an Ethernet cable.
Note: The PLAY:5 is compatible with Sonos software versions 4.0 and later. If you are adding the PLAY:5 to an existing Sonos system, be sure to check for software updates before adding the PLAY:5 to your Sonos system.

Automatic Updates: The Sonos PLAY:5 supports free automatic software updates so you will always have the newest features and music services to enjoy. Simply register the PLAY:5 and Sonos will automatically notify you when software updates are available. By simply pressing one button your system updates itself.

Speaker/Amp Section

Room-Filling Sound: The Sonos PLAY:5 provides crystal-clear, room-filling sound through various advanced sound technologies. The PLAY:5 incorporates an all-digital architecture design for precise sound reproduction. The Sonos PLAY:5 utilizes a five-driver bass-reflex speaker system individually powered by five dedicated digital amplifiers for room-filling sound. The PLAY:5 offers adjustable bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls for optimal sound performance.

5 Speakers/5 Amplifiers: The PLAY:5 uses five state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with the unit's five speakers to deliver superior sound to any room. The wireless music system provides crystal-clear, high-quality sound that rivals much larger, more complicated systems. The components of the PLAY:5 include:

  • 5 Class-D Amplifiers: five state-of-the-art, great sounding amplifiers that are light weight, powerful and very energy efficient in standby and use
  • Tweeters: two tweeters create a crisp and accurate high frequency response
  • Midrange Drivers: two 3.0" dedicated mid-range drivers ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments
  • Subwoofer: a dedicated 3.5" subwoofer driver provides deep, powerful bass you can feel

Acoustic Port: The acoustic port on the rear of the unit serves two purposes: it is vital to the sound output of the PLAY:5, and it doubles as a convenient handle when moving it from one room to another.

All-Digital Sound Architecture: From the recording studio to your home the music is reproduced as the artist intended. All filter settings, active equalization, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry so there is absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.

Controls: The PLAY:5 only has a mute button and a volume control, both mounted on the top of the unit. Between the buttons lies a Zone Player LED status indicator, which flashes white when powering up or connecting to the Sonos Digital Music System, and lights solid when powered up and connected to the music system.

Creating a Stereo Pair: For a wider stereo experience, you can combine two Play:5 units in the same room to create a pair of stereo speakers. In this configuration, one unit serves as the left channel and the other serves as the right channel. The Controller software can be used to configure the units in this manner.

Optional Wireless Subwoofer: The optional Sonos Sub is a wireless subwoofer that can be associated with the PLAY:5 to enhance the sound in the room. The set-up procedure for the Sub adjusts the crossover automatically so it seamlessly integrates with the PLAY:5. Through the Sonos Controller software, you can also set the phase and level of the subwoofer to match it to the PLAY:5's output. You must setup your Sonos system via the SonosNet wireless mesh network in order to connect the Sonos Sub (not compatible with WiFi).

Versatile Placement: You can position the Sonos Play:5 wherever you find the sound most enjoyable. Its compact size and inset handle make it easy to place the Play:5 on the kitchen counter, or carry it out to the patio with you.

Connections

Dual Ethernet Ports: There are two rear-panel female RJ-45 connectors for plugging in Category 5 Ethernet cables. You can connect a router, computer, or an additional network device, such as a network-attached storage (NAS) device. Specifications: 10/100 Mbps, auto MDI/MDIX.

Analog Input: You can connect an external source, such as a portable music player or a CD player, to the unit's rear-panel 3.5mm mini-jack port. The input jacks automatically detect a device is connected, and the source appears in the system. Music from the external source can be played in any zone. The volume is controlled by the Sonos Digital Music System, however, the playback (pause, music selection, etc.) must be controlled at the source.

Headphone Output: The Play:5 is equipped with a rear-panel 3.5mm headphone output for connecting a set of headphones. The headphone jack is auto-detecting, so when you plug-in a set of headphones, the Play:5's built-in speakers automatically mute.

Power Input: The Sonos Play:5 operates on ordinary household current using the supplied AC power adapter and cord. The Play:5 is capable of accepting 115/120 Volts AC or 230/240 Volts AC.

Sonos play 5

Written By Steve B, Baton Rouge on Monday, October 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I highly recommend the play 5 over any other Sonos speaker for its sound quality. The sound is much more balanced utilizing the onboard sub and tweeter config. just sounds better than any other Sonos. Instead of going with ceiling mounted speakers i decided a few years ago to go the Sonos route for instillation simplicity. I'm very pleased with the quality, ease of operation and integration of smart phone control.
Pros:
Installation, sound quality and placement options.
Cons:
I'd prefer the sound quality to be a little more crisp...but not a deal breaker. A little pricy.

SONOS PLAY:5

Written By Jan, Paso Robles, California on Monday, September 29, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
added to an existing multiroom SONOS system (2 PLAY:1 in kitchen and bathroom respectively) with the usual simple, no hassle, setup one has come to expect from SONOS the PLAY:5 was intended for a somewhat larger room and met all my expectations and more the PLAY:3 might have been sufficient, but I needed reserve audio power to play music at higher volume with minimum distortion the PLAY:5 delivers incredibly clear and full range audio, pure listening pleasure at a wide range of volume highly recommended - from Crutchfield - prompt and efficient order processing and shipping
Pros:
excellent audio quality
Cons:
not wall mountable due to size and weight (perfect for shelf)

Great Speaker System

Written By Ian H, Acton MA on Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a great addition to my newly acquired surround sound Sonos system. I wanted a speaker system that I could use to listen to music in locations away from my Surround Sound system. This is a fairly full range speaker with excellent sound, even when cranked up. The beauty of it is that it operates within the Sonos wireless network and as such only needs a power cord to operate. It mobility allows me to use it in any room of the house. It is very simple to setup and to maintain. I can play the same music or different music on this speaker sytem as that played on the surround sound system. The flexibility and ease of use of the Sonos system is terrific. The apps for the system operation could use improvement. Surprisingly the PC software is not as good as the Android and iOS software. It is possible to perform all necessary tasks, just not cleanly.
Pros:
Flexibility. Portability. Sound quality and range,.Management of many music sources,
Cons:
The control applications are not intuitive nor consistent among the OS specifc-implementations.

SONOS PLAYER

Written By MYRONE R., 4432209393 on Wednesday, May 28, 2014
 
The sound from this one speaker is phenomenal. My previous system had four speakers plus a sub woofer which sounded great, but after years of use it was time to replace this system. I didn't think that one speaker could replace my old system. I recommend this speaker to any who is upgrading their sound system to take advantage of the new technology that is available today.
Pros:
One speaker, great sound.
Cons:
What to do with all those old speakers?

Music everywhere

Written By ContinentalOp, Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Saturday, April 05, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Once we got the main Sonos device for digital music this was a natural for extending the music to the rest of the house. The Play 5 has the Wi-Fi, amplifier, and speakers all built in. All you need to add is power. Sync to the main Sonos unit and you can access the music library and other sources that you set up for the Sonos. Control is via the same program or app. The system can play the same source/playlist on all devices, or the Play 5 can play its own list, separate from what's coming out of the main unit.

Our house is relatively small. We set the Play 5 in a back hallway, and the volume is enough to fill the back part of the house. The sound is quite good over the entire tonal range, for a self-contained unit anyway. Not much channel separation, as might be expected for a single enclosure. Supposedly there is a way to use two Play devices to create wireless stereo sound, but that takes away some of the point of a Play - that it's "one and done", plug in a box to AC power, sync to the main Sonos unit, and you're up and running.

My wife loves the Play. Her musical tastes are rather different from mine. This way she can listen to her music in part of the house, and I can listen to mine via the other Sonos. I suspect we'll have another Play for the second floor soon.
Pros:
It's a self-contained unit that brings the music off your Sonos system to any room in the house that can pick up your Wi-Fi network. I'm tempted to try it on my back deck - if it ever gets warm enough. The sound is quite good, with surprising base for a single box, good volume overall, and surprising depth. You can synchronize the Play 5 to play what's playing on the main unit, or it can play its own playlist or source separate from what's coming out of the main unit.
Cons:
Channel separation is limited, as you'd expect for speakers that have only the separation inside the unit itself. For my installation I haven't found this a large problem; when I want the full stereo effect I listen in the room with the main Sonos and the full-on stereo rig. The Play 5 is a substantial box, so it might be a challenge finding a spot for it in a room. The Play 3 might be a better choice for smaller rooms.

Awesome produce

Written By MarkC, Hastings, MN on Thursday, February 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I love the convenience that the Sonos provides. The set up was effortless and I had no problems. After playing with it for about 20 minutes I finally discovered the menu option for "music equalization". Actually, it just allows you to adjust the treble and bass so it's a bit misleading to infer that it is an equalizer. But regardless, adjusting these controls made the sound much more to my liking. The sound is very good from such a small speaker. I was able to download the Sonos application to my MacBook Pro and my I-tunes library works seamlessly with all my controllers (Mac, iPhone and iPad). I liked the play 5 so much that I went out and bought a play 1 for my bedroom! Great products - I plan to buy more for the rest of the house!
Pros:
Convenience, seamless operation, very good sound
Cons:
A bit on the pricey side...

A good device, easy to set up. Works great with Pandora and Sirius.

Very convenient, easy quick access to music.
Cons:
Price too high. Needs to always contact Sonos, so if they go broke, then the device is useless.

Sonos Play 5

Written By Ron Feinman, Lynchburg, VA on Tuesday, January 28, 2014
 
I've had a Sonos system for many years and still believe they offer the most complete wireless sound solution. The Play 5 is a key component of my system. I have one in the den at home and one in the office. I simply take a Connect 90 and a Play 5 with me when I go to the beach, where I can hook up the Play 5 and the beach house stereo to the Sonos system. I love the portability, and in the evenings will move the Play 5 to the deck for music.

The Play 5 delivers excellent musicality for a box its size and, if desired, 2 Play 5's can be connected to form a true stereo solution. Even standing alone, one Play 5 achieves a modest amount of stereo separation and I love the clarity of the sound.
Pros:
Sonos network - ability to use my Spotify account, Pandora radio, playlists, iphone controller for both me and my kids, etc. portability - both from home to home and around a home very nice sound for the form factor
Cons:
a little pricey, just at the edge of the value proposition . . . but what a lot of value! still tied to an electrical cord

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought 2.. Love them..will be expanding the system soon. Simple, simple set up and believe me, I am no techie. Nice bass sound but will probably add subwoofer anyway. A little pricey but seem to be state of the art ( again,no techie ).
Pros:
Sound great, very easy setup, love the wireless, cool controller app for you devices
Cons:
A little expensive but not off the charts.

Less is More

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I used to hesitate to spend too much money on a Sono Play:5 since I have many options to buy wireless speakers in this price range. After I use it for couple days, I totally love with it, and my wife too. I will buy another Sono units in the future. I am not the professional for the audio, but i believe my ears get good quality sound from this digital speaker. I believe all the aspects of Sono Play:5 is above the average. And most charming part for me is its user interface. I will say Sono will change your way to listen music as Apple's products do for us.
Pros:
Good interface, Good quality of speaker and sound. And nice looking too. Simple product for people whon need a simple life. "Less is More"
Cons:
Just prices...hope more promotion come in the future

Sonos play 5

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Got a play 5 to go with my sound bar. Set up under 2 minutes. An excellent add on to my system. I use this in my bedroom 20x25 It sets off to the side not drawing any attention then you turn it on and bam hey look at me hear me loud and clear. Very satisfied with all the sonos products
Pros:
Perfect as an add on to the sonos sound bar or in a room alone. I use it in a room 20x25 sound quality is excellent and no speaker wires
Cons:
Oh the bad news is you will get hooked and add to your system piece by piece

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought both the Sonos play 3 and 5. The three for my den and the five for our larger living room. The five certainly has bigger sound, with the bass, but I'm not discounting the three, as it does wonderfully in a smaller space, and accompanies the five nicely when played together in separate rooms with different volume levels, to give a 'stereo' effect. Bottom line is that I greatly enjoy both the three and the five, and will add another three for the master bedroom.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a great system. I purchased the play 5 for our main living area, and two play 1s for the kids' bedrooms (and to move about as needed). The speakers seem incredibly well built (nice solid, heavy feel). Set them up on Christmas Eve, for music when the family woke up in the morning. Super easy to get up and running--and way easier than putting together Santa's usual toys! It's awesome to music through the house. TV is off a lot more, and we are rediscovering our love for music.
Pros:
Nice sound, easy set up, high quality packaging (and Crutchfield did an outstanding job packaging the shipment as well)
Cons:
A little expensive (but not too when I think about what we spend on computers and TVs)

Sonos - Plug and play wireless system

Written By Chicago Sonos User, Chicago, IL on Monday, January 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought the system after considering in-ceiling mounts and other controller systems. This Sonos system made the most sense. The Play 5 sounds rich and clear. The bridge was easy to set up. The controllers on my iPods and iPads are a breeze. They all-in-one-place internet radio stations were a nice touch (who wants to go looking for that stuff?) Highly recommend.
Pros:
Ease of use. Sound quality. Value.
Cons:
Not sure if they really turn off or go into sleep mode. Reducing my carbon footprint? Doubtful.

Excellent product and service from Crutchfield. I purchased the Sonos Play:5 just before Christmas. I arrived in 3-days (appreciated the free shipping) and included a free Sonos Bridge. Set-up was incredibly easy ... 'Apple-like' intuitive set-up straight out of the box ... 3 easy steps took about 5-6 minutes in total. Thoroughly enjoying the streaming audio and the Play:5 easily serves our largest room and adjoining open-plan rooms. So satisfied I just ordered Play:1's for the office and kitchen area.
Pros:
Ease of set-up, aesthetics, quality of sound.
Cons:
None yet.

Liked my daughter's Sonos Play 3 so much that I bought a Sonos Play 5 for our large living room as a Christmas present. Good thing I told her as she was going to get us one, so instead she got us a Play1 that works well in the kitchen. They sound great.

Easy to set-up and use.

Have not figured out how to directly play music from my itunes library on MacBook, but plays music off my iphone with no problem.

123 reviews can't be wrong

Written By MArcus, Ft Lauderdale,Fl on Thursday, December 26, 2013
 
In case you can't tell from other 122 reviews, this is a simple and great sounding solution to networked and streamed music. Setup is the simplest I've seen taking only 3-4 minutes. Sound quality is very good compared to similar sized units. Excellent streaming of popular music services and a seamless integration with my Pandora and Sirius XM.
Pros:
Easy set up Rich sound at all volumes Seamless integration of music services Works over wifi network, not bluetooth
Cons:
Pricey No EQ or sound setup

Sonia Play 5 Rocks

Written By IanB, San Antonio on Thursday, December 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Have been looking at Sonos for some years, and finally pulled the trigger on Play 5/Bridge combo (free Bridge promotion). Incredibly easy to set up. Sounds good w/streaming music like Pandora or other streaming services, but really shines from a quality digital copy like EAC (free off internet) from my computer. Big sound w/surprising imaging from an unwuired box. Will be looking to put a pair of Play 1s or maybe Play 3s the kitchen.
Pros:
Ease of set up, sound, mobility (in a house)
Cons:
Pricey, but easily some of the best money I've spent on audio equipment this year.

Fabulous and frustrating

Written By newmarket2, Santa Fe, NM on Thursday, December 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The Play:5 as a speaker has sound that's quite good enough for me. It fills up a large space (living, dining and hallway) nicely. It also has a line in plug on the back, which is missing (quite disappointing and shame on Sonos for not including it) on the Play:1 and Play:3. A few words about the entire Sonos sytem.... it provides rich sound, the components are attractive and the ability to send different programming to different speakers is a major differentiator from bluetooth speakers. This is a system for a home - not a dorm room or the beach or..... I have found Sonos support to be lacking. Because Crutchfield provides lifetime tech support, that's only a problem for obscure problems. The pricing is high but not unreasonable given the quality. I'll also add that the system doesn't make it easy to add internet sources of music such as Spotify. Only Spotify Premium works with the Sonos system! And, if you're playing Spotify content via Sonos and someone else in your family uses the same Spotify account to play music elsewhere, it shuts down Sonos abruptly. I haven't explored other internet sources because I mostly listen to Spotify. I also had a failure of my router during Spotify playback. I had to reboot the router to clear the problem. This might have been as a result of problems with my internet service provider (Comcast). But, I will be watching to see how my home wifi system handles the load Spotify/Sonos puts on it.
Pros:
Great sound. Great control over what plays on which speaker. Many music sources including Spotify Premium (critical for me). Easy to set up. Easy to control if you use your Smartphone for more than phone calls.
Cons:
Possible instability of home wifi given the load Sonos puts on it. Not cheap.

Sonos Play 5, good sound and strong transmission

Written By Skeptic, Washington DC on Friday, December 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Speaker has very good sound for a wireless speaker, with solid bass. The Sonos wireless transmission is significantly better (stronger, more relialbe) than using my standard wi-fi network for this purpose.
Pros:
Good full-range sound for its fairly compact size. Better sound than comparable size Bose wireless speaker.
Cons:
Sonos system does not work with powered speakers designed to work with Apple Airplay, at least not without some jerry-rigged connections and additional equipment, so cannot integrate existing Apple-centric (e.g. B&W Zeppelin Air) speakers into Sonos system.

Sonos 5 Everything and more.

Written By Chuck C, Omaha, Ne on Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
After years of studying and wondering we finally pulled the trigger and bought a Sonos 5. Did consider the equivalent bose system but went with the sonos. It took 5 minutes to set up and the sound was better than we could hope for. It is hidden behind a curio cabinet and still fills the room with music. Ordered a Sonos 3 a few days later and will end up with three sonos 3s and two sonos 5s.
Pros:
very easy to set up, can hide speakers and still get great sound, free bridge offer a nice treat, great service from Crutchfield (as always) Can draw music from just about anywhere.
Cons:
A little pricey but still cheaper and easier than hard wired

The ultimate alternative to drilling large holes in the ceiling for speakers, then' fishing' wires.... or spending hundreds on an IPad interface/remote amp! Bought (1) play 5....took 10 minutes to get it up and running...and it sounds great! Plan on buying another Play 5 and a play 1 for the pool area! The ability to adjust the base enhanced the low's...nice if you are a classic music listener.

SONOS Play:5 Great

Written By Tony, Livingston NJ on Saturday, September 14, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great equipment. Have one in the garage and one in the basement. It provides just the right amount of ambient sound. Not too overbearing. But therein lies the rub: If you want more separation (for serious listening) then you really ought to consider separate speakers. The Play:5 sound is clean, well balanced and full, even with a condensed "soundstage". The lows are satisfying for the size of the unit. For my needs, this is perfect. Amazing technology to be able to stream non-stop audio through a home network! Crutchfield is super! - as usual.
Pros:
Sound...clarity. Unabtrusive (Just sits there, looks great, and delivers high quality audio)
Cons:
Separation limited by the physical box (but then again, that's the nature of what it is....)

Powerful and compact. Great tone, amazing bass for a small speaker and light enough to install where and as needed around the house and backyard. Very durably constructed. I carry mine out to the front porch in the morning to enjoy the news with my morning coffee and over to my workshop later in the day or out to the patio while gardening. Love the portability.
Pros:
Connects to an existing Sonos system in about a minute and then as easily controllable as any other Sonos component.
Cons:
Pricy, but most Sonos components are. You pay for a unique product, the excellent quality and fantastic product support.

Criticism, not a complaint: The Play:5 is slower to connect to the bridge than the play:3

Disapointed

Written By JM, Miami, Florida on Thursday, July 04, 2013
 
It sounds great. The problem is that it only works in the morning. Every evening, I get this message when I try to use it: "network connection speed insufficient to maintain playback buffer." Crutchfield's "Details" tab for the Play 5 mentions, "[f]or best results, you should connect the computer or NAS drive that contains your personal music library collection to your home network router using an Ethernet cable," and I read on some forums that using your computer's wifi instead of an ethernet cable might cause this problem. Since my computer is a MacBook Air, it doesn't have an ethernet port. I never, however, played any music from the computer using the Sonos software, and it was always off, morning or night, whenever I used the Play 5. I only used my iPhone, which one would think needn't be wired to any Sonos device or router as that would seemingly and unnecessarily limit the Play 5's reason for being. I really wanted this thing to work because it does sound great, and because I dread the idea of repacking the speaker and bridge and lugging them to the UPS store, but I can't keep something that selectively works based upon the time of day.

Really Impressive - even at the price point

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is my second Play 5 and why not? They are great for dining rooms, kitchens, bathrooms or out at the grill. The sound quality and volume level is a lot better than what you think should come from a small plastic box. I find that placement can make a big difference. When I place them angled in a corner, the bass really comes alive. And they will rock too. Plus, the music options Sonos gives you is ridiculous. I never imagined having this many choices at my fingertips. Don't forget that there are spare Ethernet ports on the rear. They come in handy if you need a port in a room that doesn't have a cable. I have used the ports to set up Wi-Fi repeaters where there was poor signal. Pricy but worth every penny.
Pros:
Compact. Good sound. More music options than you can shake a stick at.
Cons:
A little pricey but you get your moneys worth.

Never have i done anything so quickly. Great sound in all three (one sonos 5 and two sonos 3).
