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 Black Reviews

Not That Great April-08-15
Reviewer: Ashley from California  
It does not have auxiliary to plug into the cell phone and it does not sound powerful like the Bose speakers that I have

Great component April-06-15
Reviewer: Tim from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina  
I. Ought this to make a stereo pair with my other Play 5. It sounds awesome. I live in a tow home and want great sound at volume that doesn't nother my neighbors.  One play 5 is good enough, but once you hear them In a pair, you cannot go back.

Sonos Play 5 April-01-15
Reviewer: Skyler C. from Seattle, WA  
The ability to control music in your home with the convenience of an easy-to-use downloadable app (Android or Apple) is a luxury I have waited years for! Setup is seemless, and the sound quality on this particular unit is broad and rich.  

Like most of us out there - I hope - I enjoy music in my home on a daily basis. The Sonos app and speaker(s) allow you to control all aspects of the system from your cell phone, IPAD, etc. Yes, it may promote laziness to some extent, but when you are in the middle of something and want to enjoy a specific song or album you can achieve this as easily as checking the weather on your handheld device. That translates to utmost convenience.  

When I set up the Play 5 I was admittedly skeptical about the potential sound quality; both high-end and especially low-end. The unit was and still is impressive for its size regarding sound quality. It isn't going to blow the windows out of your home or apartment, but let's be honest - that is what powered subs are for.  

I am already planning the next addition to my existing Sonos family of speakers/components. Maybe a Play 3 for the office? I currently have the Play 5 linked to a Sonos Connect --> perfect for those who would like to use Sonos and have a pre-existing stereo system in their home. Best thing about multiple Sonos systems in one home is the ability to group or seperate them independently of eachother and control volumes in unison, or individually.  

Long story short = Try it out!

Great Sound; I like the Line-in feature March-30-15
Reviewer: csteury from Salt Lake City, Ut  
Great sound, I already owned a Sonos-1 and Sonos-3.  They sound ok, but the Sonos-5 is even better.  In truth, I purchased this unit due to the "Line-In" capability as I just purchased a turntable which I wanted to plug into my existing Sonos system.  Due to spatial considerations, I also  wanted to place the turntable close to my computer system in order to digitize and convert Vinyl to flac, etc.  In any case, all went according to plan and as a bonus the new Sonos-5 exceed expectations w.r.t sound quality!

It's Good March-21-15
Reviewer: Brett from Virginia  
A little pricey, but very convenient to use.  Sound is extremely good for home use - tight bass, defined mids, and non-brittle highs.  Will expand the system more in time.
