Have been wanting to add to our Sonos system for a while and to bring our vinyl collection back. The Play:5 (with the PP400 pre amp) has allowed us to achieve both. The Play:5 certainly provides excellent sound.


Absolute stunning sound from a very compact sized speaker.


Amazing sound.


Very pleased so far with the Sonos PLAY:5 delivers what it advertises to give with its sound and versatility.


Having already a Sonos play 5, I purchased a second to create a stereo pair, the difference is outstanding and now the room is completely filled with sound. I personally found that 1 play 5 was not enough to fill our lounge and fill immersed with the music. If your thinking about getting 2 you definitely won't be disappointed!


Amazing sound quality, great looks and an easy to use app that makes


Sonos Play5 my first of many Sonos speakers I feel ( don’t tell my wife :) ) Sounds brilliant fills the room with a great sound. Equally at home with bit fat dirty bass as it is with the gentle twang of an acoustic guitar.


You get what you pay for


unreal sound quality, would 100% recommend this unit.


Amazing sound for a wide genre of music; check out the various reviews on the web



Easiest thing ever to set up. Sounds good, Solid, means I can now move my other speakers to my studio


Good packaging, great looking speaker, and brilliant sounding. Also works in a limited way with Amazon Alexa....though I gather this will be improved soon.


Great service, price and delivery. I cannot say better than that. Excellent and well done.


Oustanding speaker.

The play 5 is very impressive. Great sound especially the bass from such a compact unit, easy to set up and operate. Nothing not to like about it. The do cost quite a lot but as soon as you hear it and see one in the flesh you can tell that it is a quality bit of kit and you get what you pay for in this instance. Highly recommended

Having purchased a play 1 last year, I wanted a play 5 for the dining room. I am very impressed, love sonos especially multi room play. The play 5 is a brilliant piece of kit.

Nice sound in neat package, the interface is a little clunky. I would recommend this to others

I don't think I can overstate how much of an improvement this is from the first generation Play:5. Needless to say, once I had one, I had to sell all of my other Sonos components to buy more. Trueplay is more than a gimmick and really enhances the soundstage. The touch interface is great. Most importantly, they sound incredible, losing the bass port has improved the sound exponentially. In terms of build quality, I took two of these to Burning Man this year in some incredibly harsh, dusty conditions. Not only did they perform incredibly but they look and sound as good as new. Value for money wise, Sonos don't change their products particularly often and the build quality means they will look and sound great for years, firmware updates keep you current and they've finally sorted out most of the annoying aspects in their software such as no longer having to queue the next track in a playlist. Before they'd made these updates, I was close to abandoning the platform, but the improvements are great and they no longer seem to have Spotify outages like they did a few years ago. If you run into problems, their support network is great and friendly. I don't own any bluesound or Naim equipment, but I think they're definitely superior to the Bose equivalents having used the Soundtouch 25s fairly extensively and the user interface is far better. Soon the addition of spotify connect will make the experience more seamless in my opinion. For the price, I can't recommend a better quality speaker.

Great piece of kit well worth the money

Purchased the Play 5, very pleased with the build quality, features and especially the sound. I have had decent audio in the past but this is head and shoulders above, great product.

Andy Durrington

Excellent sound quality, build quality and ease of use with the Sonos app. I have it linked with another Play 5 to form a stereo pair. I can't see myself upgrading for some considerable time as the sound is stunning and in my opinion a comparable amp, CD player and speakers offering a similar level of performance would cost far more.

Bold sound. Pure and true.

The biggest Sonos speaker packs a punch and connects you to the heartbeat of the music you love. Enjoy studio quality, high-fidelity sound with deep, rich bass from three woofers and a sealed architecture to prevent reverb.

The three woofers team up with a trio of tweeters to enable remarkably distinct separation of voices and instruments like you’ve never heard before - from crisp high-frequency to deep bass. A phased speaker array design offers a wide stereo soundstage.

The Play:5 lets you hear and feel the emotion, energy and passion the artist packed into the original recording.

While the Play:5 is the largest speaker in the range it maintains the sleek design of Sonos products. From the top-panel touch controls to the rounded corners and the black mesh front it epitomises a high-quality speaker.
