The Sonos Play:5 is the audio brand’s flagship speaker- and it shows. Taking all that they have learned in over a decade of multi-room audio engineering, Sonos have built a bookshelf speaker that’s genuinely breathtaking. The sound quality is superb, taking tracks you thought you knew and shining new light on them. With six powerful Class D amplifiers and three woofers, it’s plenty powerful enough to fill even large living rooms comfortably.
As Sonos’ largest speaker, the Play:5 is the perfect way to fill bigger rooms with high-fidelity audio. Using six dedicated speaker drivers, each powered by a mighty Class D amplifier, sound projection is truly best-in-class. But that power doesn’t come at the expense of clarity. Using some expert engineering techniques, Sonos have ensured that the Play:5 always sounds crystal clear. Even if you crank it up to eleven, there’s zero distortion- meaning you can take this bookshelf speaker as loud as you like.
Sleek, streamlined design
Not only is the Sonos Play:5 a powerful piece of kit, but it also looks great, too. On the face of it, the front panel seems to be made out of a solid piece of high-quality plastic. Take a closer look, though, and you’ll see it’s actually a grille containing over 60,000 microscopic holes. Sonos spent over a year engineering this grille to provide the optimum acoustic performance, without leaving speaker elements on view. What’s more, there are no unsightly buttons to mar the appearance of the Play:5. Instead, you’ll find elegant touch controls seamlessly integrated into the main body of the bookshelf speaker.
Your music, your way
The Sonos Play:5 has been specially designed to fit in just about anywhere within your living room. The speaker can be placed either horizontally or vertically, and the speaker itself actually adapts to this placement. When lying flat, the twin speakers play in stereo, switching to mono when standing upright to better suit the speaker placement. What’s more, the rubber feet on three sides fix the Play:5 down firmly wherever you put it. Lastly, if you’ve got an iOS device, then you’ll be able to use Sonos’ unique Trueplay calibration software. This tweaks the audio output to perfectly suit the unique acoustics of the room, giving you the best possible listening experience.
The ultimate music app
To set up your new Sonos Play:5, you’ll need to download the brand’s app for Android or iOS. However, this does a lot more than just get you started. Once your bookshelf speaker is ready to go, the app then becomes your one-stop-shop for music streaming and multi-room setup. With built-in support for over 80 different streaming platforms, as well as the ability to play locally stored files, you’ll get instant access to all the music you love.
Alexa compatible for voice controls
For ultimate ease of use, the Sonos Play:5 is fully compatible with any Amazon Echo device. Just connect both devices to the same network, and add the Play:5 via your Alexa app. With that done, you’ll get complete control over your bookshelf speaker using just your voice. Simply tell Alexa what to play where, and let her take care of the rest.
