Overview Details Accessories

All the music you want — anywhere in your home

Sonos® systems let you tap into music from your personal collection and from the Internet, anywhere in your house. The compact Sonos PLAY:5 makes it easy to get started or add an additional room — it's a self-contained music system with built-in speakers. You'll get top-notch, room-filling sound from a player that easily fits on a counter in the kitchen or an end table in the living room. The PLAY:5 teams up five drivers — two tweeters, two midranges and a subwoofer — with five tailor-matched amplifiers to deliver full-bodied, lifelike sound.

Exceptionally easy multi-room music

Sonos makes setup easy

Place Sonos music players like the PLAY:5 in every room where you want to listen to music. The players connect to your home network — either via Wi-Fi® or by connecting one player to your router via Ethernet to create a dedicated Sonos network. This network, known for its extensive range and superior performance, gives you house-wide access to tunes stored on your PC along with a wealth of Internet audio choices. (We recommend adding the Sonos BOOST to connect all players to your network wirelessly.)

Sonos controllers

You probably already own a Sonos controller

You can use an iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad®, or Android™ phone to control any and all Sonos players. A free download turns your smartphone and tablet into a full-fledged Sonos controller. Easily navigate and search through playlists and tracks stored on your computer, or select an Internet radio station. Create customized playlists on the fly for individual rooms or for playback over your entire Sonos system. You can also mute or adjust the volume of each of your players.

Rhapsody®, Pandora® Internet radio, SiriusXM, and more at your fingertips

The Sonos system works seamlessly with a host of Internet-based digital music services, including Rhapsody, Pandora, Spotify, Napster®, and SiriusXM Internet Radio. Rhapsody offers instant access to millions of songs and ad-free radio stations through your Sonos Controller. SIRIUS Internet Radio gives you access to over 80 channels of programming. Every Sonos system includes free 30-day trials of these two services, so you can start listening the moment you take it out of the box. Pandora creates customized Internet radio streams just for you — all you have to do is enter the name of your favourite song or artist. And because Sonos connects directly to the Internet for all of these music services, you don't even have to turn on your PC.

Play music stored on your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®

Sonos now gives you convenient wireless access to music and podcasts stored in the Music app of iOS devices, for playback throughout your entire Sonos system. This function works on devices running iOS6 or later (see below for full list of compatible Apple devices). The system even lets you connect multiple Apple players at once. For instance, you can queue up songs from your iPhone to play in the kitchen while you cook, and your spouse can stream a podcast in the den at the same time.

Expand your Sonos system

You can have up to 32 Sonos music players in your system, and each one can play an independent selection of individual tracks or playlists. Listen to jazz in the den while your spouse plays rock music in the kitchen, or pump a single playlist of songs throughout the entire house during a party.

Sonos PLAY:5 White Reviews

72 people say

Great sound, but limited integration January-21-15
Reviewer: TomD from Palm Springs  
The sound is great-I got two Sonos Play:5s and hooked them up to be stereo. It creates good overall sound for a large room (where there aren't great acoustics) and there are no speaker wires (only electrical plugs), plus they can be moved to other rooms. The set-up was easy and everything is controlled from your smartphone (iPhone). I mostly listen to my iTunes library and Pandora, and primarily as background music. They look great in white, clean and modern.  

There are only a few downsides. Sonos is an independent system, so you can't easily integrate it with other sound systems (or the TV) unless you buy one of their Connects. I got a Yamaha soundbar for the TV at the same time, wanted to integrate them all together for amazing TV sound. But buying two Sonos Play:5s and the Yamaha already tipped my budget, so adding more money for a Connect would make me rethink the whole set-up. The other downside is the spouse-it isn't easy for two people to work the system. Since it's controlled from my iPhone, if I step out of the room, he has no way to change a song or adjust the volume easily (although there are buttons on the speakers for volume). It would be better if we could control everything from the TV, so Pandora and other sources would be accessible from anyone in the room (another reason to shell out $350 for a Connect).  

Not sure there was a better option for my situation, other than a TV soundbar with wireless rear speakers.

Full sound, small frame December-09-14
Reviewer: John R. from Charlotte NC  
I was not sure what to expect when I took the Play 5 out of the box.  It was smaller than I imagined, but after the easy set up, I was enjoying a full room of music.  Surprisingly solid amount of bass generated by the speaker.  All around pleased with my purchase.

SONOS PLAY:5 September-29-14
Reviewer: Jan from Paso Robles, California  
added to an existing multiroom SONOS system (2 PLAY:1 in kitchen and bathroom respectively) with the usual simple, no hassle, setup one has come to expect from SONOS the PLAY:5 was intended for a somewhat larger room and met all my expectations and more the PLAY:3 might have been sufficient, but I needed reserve audio power to play music at higher volume with minimum distortion the PLAY:5 delivers incredibly clear and full range audio, pure listening pleasure at a wide range of volume highly recommended - from Crutchfield - prompt and efficient order processing and shipping
