Sonos PLAY:5 - The biggest Sonos speaker with the boldest sound

  • Fills a large room with pure, brilliant sound
  • Six custom-designed drivers with dedicated amplifiers
  • Airplay 2 compatible 
  • TruePlay tuning delivers sound that's true to the music and right for the room
  • Top-panel touch controls
  • Line-in to connect your favourite music sources
  • Uses your WiFi. Easy to set up and allows you to expand your system over time



The Sonos 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.

Superior stereo sound


You’ll hear each separate instrument, voice, and sonic detail in all its glory. Six Class-D amplifiers with six dedicated speaker drivers deliver crystal clear, rich, deep, stereophonic sound with zero distortion. So go ahead and crank up the volume.



Plug in any audio device

Whether it’s a turntable, CD player or a friend’s phone, listen to your favourite music on PLAY:5. You can also send the music from PLAY:5 to any other Sonos speaker in your home.


Multiple orientations

Stand it tall or set it on its side. Either way, PLAY:5 automatically optimises the sound. When it’s horizontal, it’s in stereo. When it's vertical, it's in mono. The rubber feet on three sides make it safe for any surface.

Connect your Sonos to any Amazon Echo device


With an Amazon Echo or Dot, you can use your voice to play and control songs, playlists, radio stations, podcasts and more.


TruePlay makes your Sonos PLAY:5 smarter, more spatially aware and more responsive.

It uses your iPhone or iPad to measure how sound reflects off walls, furnishings and other surfaces in any given space. Then it adjusts the speaker, as much or as little as needed, to produce the sound that’s true to the music and right for the room.

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

Alan Maddison

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.
