Goo stand but could be sturdier

Mike from Amesbury, MA on 11/18/2018

Good product, well made and looks good. But I wish it were a little sturdier in that it holds up a $500 speaker. I did find that the sturdiness improved when I went back and tightened the screws a bit more on the bottom. Because they have lock washers, you need to make sure the screws are completely seated.

Pricey Option

For a stand specifically made for the Sonos Play 5, I was expecting a little more. There is nothing really securing the speaker to the stand except for a small notch slot and just a slight nudge could move the speaker off its perch. Sanus suggests using some 3M strips to more securely attach the speakers, but doesn't provide any. I think Sonos may be partially to blame since they didn't provide any screw holes on the Play 5's as they do on their Play 1's. However, I think Sanus should have compensated for that by providing a back bracket as they did for the Play 1.

Pros: Stylish and hides the wiring well. Height level seems just right for the PLAY 5.

Cons: Pricey and not that well designed. Weight limit of 15 lbs may limit the use of the stand for other speakers. Having to go out and buy 3M strips after spending money to buy the stand.

Sanus WSS51

Terrible. Wobbly. Ugly. Doesn't provide firm base. Doesn't work with my older model 5. Very poor product.

More details on the Sanus WSS51

Product Research


Compatibility: The Sanus WSS51 speaker stand has been specifically engineered and designed to place the Sonos PLAY:5 speaker (sold separately) at the optimal listening height in either a vertical or horizontal orientation.

Steel Construction: The Sanus WSS51 speaker stand features anodized aluminum construction (available in a white or black finish) for durability and style that perfectly complements the modern look of the Sonos Play:5. The stands' heavy, low center of gravity base allows 10° of stand tip in any direction before speaker tips or falls off.

Rubber or Spike Feet: The Sanus WSS51 speaker stand comes with rubber and spike feet to accommodate different flooring. The rubber feet should be used on hardwood, laminate, and tile flooring. The spike feet should be used on carpeted flooring. Both types of feet screw into the bottom of the stand's base.

Note: The rubber feet add approximately 0.25" to the overall height of the stand. The spike feet add approximately 0.375" to the overall height of the stand.

Wire Management: The speaker stand's column, base, and top-plate have wire channels to conceal and route your cables. The wire channels are large enough to route and conceal your Sonos speaker's power and Ethernet cables.

Tools Required: All you'll need is a phillips-head screwdriver to assemble the WSS51 speaker stand and to mount your Sonos speaker to the stand. Sanus estimates an assembly time of approximately 15 minutes.
