      Answer

      This was done just to annoy you and to make sure it doesnt match your asthetic desires. Sonos will make sure and call before their next manufacturing decision and ensure you approve. Maybe put some white tape over your keyboard so you cant put this stuff on the internet.

          Yes. In the settings menu, you can adjust bass and treble, and engage a "loudness" or "bass boost" function.

          Would you want to add the subwoofer or are a pair truly excellent on their own?

            Answer

            I have a pair of the new Play 5's and was considering adding the sub but after doing some manual adjustments and increasing the bass level on the built in EQ I don't believe I need one. For normal music listening they put out more than enough bass. I did speak with Sonos though and they confirmed that when paired with a sub the crossover levels are adjusted on the play 5's taking some pressure off the woofers and allowing them to handle more of the mid bass. I would be curious to hear it but you do not "need" the sub to enjoy great bass.

              Answer

              It is actually plastic. It used to be metal on the old version but they found that the antenna was had interference in the new design so they changed it to a hard plastic. It feels like metal but it isn't. As far as the base, no sub needed. I think the sub would be great for the playbar or the play 1 or play 3. But the play 5 just doesn't need it in my opinion. It hits hard without it.

                The speakers are wirelessly connected to computer/phone/tablet, but require a power cord to electric outlet.

                  Sonos is a wifi speaker, there are no BT capability. You can use Line in Audio, or add a BT adapter with AUX into Sonos.

                    Both options are great. I would go with 2 play 3's and set them up in stereo mode. The separation is great.
