Attention obsessive audiophiles and hard-core music lovers. PLAY:5 is your speaker. It’s the biggest and best-sounding speaker from Sonos. So whether you’ve got a big room to fill with music or a discerning ear for divine sound, we’ve got you covered.
Close your eyes. And listen.
You’ll hear each separate instrument, voice, and sonic detail in all its glory. As if you were sitting in the front row. Six Class-D amplifiers with six dedicated speaker drivers deliver crystal clear, rich, deep, stereophonic sound. And zero audible distortion, no matter how high you crank up the volume.
It’s all about that bass.
Thanks to three mighty woofers and a completely sealed architecture, PLAY:5 delivers big, precise bass response without reverb or echoes.
Tap for the volume. Swipe for the track. Right from the PLAY:5 speaker itself. Perfect for when your phone is in hiding or out of reach.
Play it your way.
Stand it tall or set it on its side. Either way, PLAY:5 automatically optimizes the sound. When it’s horizontal, it’s in stereo. Mono in vertical. The rubber feet on both sides make it safe for any surface.
Great sound, guaranteed.
Trueplay tuning analyzes the room then adjusts your PLAY:5 to deliver the best sound possible. For both music and home theatre.
WIFI. Not Bluetooth.
Sonos is WiFi, not Bluetooth. It matters. Especially when the phone rings or the person with the music has to leave. With Sonos, the songs stream from your WiFi network so there are never any dropouts, delays or interruptions.
Singing in the shower encouraged.
We built PLAY:5 humidity resistant so you can enjoy your favourite tunes in music-starved places like big master bathrooms and outdoor patios. All you need is WiFi access and a place to plug it in. Just remember, it’s not waterproof or weather-resistant.
Grab your aux cord.
Plug in any audio device – from your turntable to a friend’s phone – and listen to your favourite music on your PLAY:5. You can also send the music from your PLAY:5 to any other Sonos speaker in your home.
Stereo pair with another PLAY:5
Turn each speaker into separate left and right channels for wider, bigger, and deeper stereo sound.
Add a SUB
Wirelessly connect SUB to your PLAY:5 – single or stereo pair – for dramatically deeper bass. Since your PLAY:5s don’t have to handle the bass anymore, they can focus on producing better mid-range and high frequencies.
