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.
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.
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.
With 2 dedicated mid-range drivers this ensures the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments.
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.
HEAR IT JUST LIKE THEY PLAYED IT.
PURE AND TRUE.
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.
THOUGHTFULLY DESIGNED, WITH TOMORROW
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.
SMART GETS AMPED TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL
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.

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.
