    Perfect For

    • Filling large rooms with the best sound Sonos have ever engineered
    • A stereo pair of PLAY:5s a true alternative to a traditional Hi-Fi
    • Clearer treble, deeper bass and a wider soundstage than ever before
    • Even a single PLAY:5 working on its own is still a Party Animal


    Fill your room with SONOS Hi-Fi sound. Access all the music on earth!

    The ultimate all-in-one listening experience with the deepest, richest Hi-Fi sound. PLAY:5 is the award winning, original, bigger room player that's a power house of sound. With it's five integrated amplifiers and speakers. A natural evolution from the PLAY:3.

    why we love play:5

    Crystal-clear, high-quality sound that rivals much larger, more complicated systems.

    Compared with others, the Play:5 has more subtlety and breadth in the higher-end as well as a natural warmth from that sub-woofer. Even with the Sonos' Loudness feature turned off the Play:5 has real depth and presence, making itself felt in even the largest rooms, enhanced by the additional tweeter and sub-woofer and separate amplifiers for each driver. When compared to the PLAY:3 it is a natural evolution and proves it's worth the extra investment. It also benefits from a much wider stereo sound-stage thanks to its larger form factor.

    Core Benefits

    Stereo pair for bigger sound

    Turn two PLAY:5s into separate left and right channel speakers for even bigger stereo sound in one room.

    Five speakers each powered by their own amplifier

    The PLAY:5 uses 5 state-of-the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with 5 speakers to deliver superior sound to any room. A subwoofer produces powerful bass while two mid-range drivers and two tweeters fill out the sound.

    All digital sound

    The all-digital sound architecture provides precise sound reproduction, just as the artist intended. All filter settings, active equalization and time-alignment are done in the digital domain so there's no loss of audio quality or energy.

    Acoustic port

    The acoustic port on the rear of the unit serves two purposes – it’s vital to the sound output of the PLAY:5 when in use and it’s also a convenient handle when moving it from one room to another.

    Mid-range drivers

    With 2 dedicated mid-range drivers this ensures the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments.

    Subwoofer driver

    Dedicated subwoofer driver provides deep, powerful bass you can feel.

    TRUEPLAY makes the PLAY:5 acoustically aware and adaptable. It recognises the distinct acoustic qualities of any space, then fine-tunes all six drivers to deliver exceptional sound that’s bespoke for the room you listen in. No matter where – or even how – you place your speaker. With its relevant, gracefully restrained design, its precise acoustic fidelity, and its ever-evolving software smarts, the Sonos PLAY:5 is an intuitive audio powerhouse that will transform your home listening experience right now – and for as long as you love music.

    Product Benefits


    The PLAY:5 connects you directly to the heartbeat of the music you love. Flawlessly. Transparently. Truthfully. Three smartly synchronised mid-woofers team up with a trio of tweeters to treat your ears to the most remarkably distinct separation of voices and instruments they’ve ever experienced. You’ll hear and feel all the emotion, energy and meaning the artist packed into the original recording.


    The PLAY:5 is meticulously engineered with an eye towards the future of home audio. Every detail, both inside and out, has been carefully considered to be relevant today, and compatible with tomorrow. It combines elegantly restrained good looks with agile internal sensors and ongoing software updates to provide your home with the most future-proofed audio solution currently available. So you can enjoy the purest expression of the music you love, now and for years to come.


    Acoustically aware and adaptable, the PLAY:5 uses revolutionary TRUEPLAY tuning to analyse the unique acoustic dynamics of any space in your home, then fine-tune all six drivers for a listening experience that's bespoke to the room you listen in. Pair it with a second PLAY:5 – each speaker will intelligently sense its orientation, then adjust its output to deliver a sweet spot that's wider in horizontal mode, or more focused and intense when positioned vertically.

    1. Hardware and software custom-designed by Sonos to produce pure, immersive sound that's crystal clear at any volume.

    2. 3 tweeters and 3 long-throw mid-woofers, each with a dedicated amplifier, were designed in-house and perfectly tuned to match the speakers and acoustic architecture.

    3. Turn two PLAY:5s into separate left and right channel speakers to create wider, bigger, deeper sound.

    4. Add 2 PLAY:5 speakers to a PLAYBAR and SUB for a true surround sound experience.

    5. 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.

    6. Rubber feet Place the PLAY:5 on any kind of surface in your home without fear of scratches or scrapes.

    7. 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.)

    8. Audio line-in Auto-detecting 3.5mm audio line-in connection.

    How is sonos on wifi different

    We do WiFi differently. Enabling Sonos in WiFi doesn't mean that we do it the same as everyone else. We've taken our years of experience in wireless networking technology and applied it to our enhanced Sonos implementation on WiFi to improve performance and reliability.

    Why create a dedicated sonos wireless network when wifi doesn't cut it

    Sometimes WiFi just isn't enough. Some people have problems streaming movies or surfing the web at home because their network is crowded with too many wireless devices, and others have rooms too far away from the router that don't get a signal at all. If this sounds familiar – you can always plug any Sonos product into the router or buy a SONOS BOOST to create a dedicated wireless network just for your Sonos speakers.

    Dedicated sonos network benefits

    Plugging in a product launches a reliable mesh network on a separate wireless channel, which means that your speakers don't have to talk to the WiFi router directly, but rather can connect reliably through any nearby Sonos player. This increases the range of your Sonos system, and ensures that you've got great connectivity no matter how large your home or many WiFi devices you use.

    Which setup is right for me?

    If you got great WiFi at home, simply buy any 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, Sonos offers options for you to make sure the music never stops.

    Play your favorite songs. Stream your favorite services.
