    Great Speaker

    Posted .

    Great speaker. Nearly audiophile quality. Sonos works through the Sonos app so it will not just plug into the speaker output but the app is capable. Get two and when configured vertically on either side of an audio engine, (phone, Bluetooth computer or a turntable) a stereo system is created.

    I’ve been upgrading my home audio to an all Sonos system. I was looking into replacing my HomePod and had opted for a pair of Sonos Ones. I didn’t get enough sound out of those so I returned that pair and bought a Sonos Five. For those people trying to fill a bigger space the Sonos Five has you covered. It’s the biggest speaker in the newer generation Sonos line (not counting the sound bars). It sounds great! It has crisp clear highs and deep bass. I was wondering if I would eventually need to buy a Sub to go with it but I’m more than happy with the lows. It doesn’t have any smart voice features but I honestly don’t miss them, trying Siri to understand or play the music I wanted was always hit or miss. Now I just take my phone out and use the Sonos app or Airplay directly from Apple Music. The hardware is top notch. I was never a fan of their older industrial design but ever since the latest generation versions came out I have to say they nail my aesthetic design.

    Now that I’ve had this speaker in my kitchen for several weeks I can give this an honest review. That being said I truly love this speaker. The white modern look blends really well in a deep corner of our kitchen countertop. As for the sound it’s rich and detailed even at an extremely low volume. I really enjoy that I can hold a conversation and listen to music with such fullness. There in no need for an additional subwoofer. The volume you can achieve with this speaker is more than most people will need I would be extremely surprised is anyone were disappointed. The speaker is more than capable of bass you can feel in your chest. I keep the eq for the low end at -2. I enjoy bass. Mids are clear and smooth and highs are crisp yet smooth. The sound can charge from track to track depending on the recording and amount of compression. The Sonos app works well and playing you favorite music apps is a breeze. The app itself takes a little bit to learn how to navigate but is fairly comprehensive. It’s a $500 speaker so my expectations were fairly high. I have to say they were met. I was fortunate enough to purchase this at $399. So I would say it was a value.

    Had the Sonos One SLs in the living room. These 5's replaced them as the One SLs were just not powerful enough to fill the room. We have two huge U shaped couches and still have tons of room left. Five's not only fill the room with sound but also look so elegant. When researching if I should try these, there were many people that said they would be overkill. Well that is due to the fact mostly that those users don't have a larger living room. I am 1000% happy with the purchase.

    It's a good speaker, sound is clear and crisp. It is bulkier than what I was expecting. Seems like the competition in this space is catching up on quality and Sonos isn't budging on price. Overall I think it's a great speaker, however, you have other alternatives that could save you money for relatively close to the same quality.

    I already have a Sonos home theatre system and home wireless speakers so this was an add on for an Audio-Technical LP120XBT-USB turntable I bought to listen to some vinyls. With the direct Line In jack on the 5, I can connect my turntable (must have a built in pre- amp or an separate pre-amp to work) directly and then connect all the other Sonos speakers wirelessly. By itself this speaker is great and has great sound. Yeah, it’s pricey and that will give you pause to pull the trigger. So, buy it or don’t. It’s up to you. I’ll be jamming out regardless.

    Well this speakers has it all, crisp highs,mids, and suprising lows. The range is unbelievably for not having a subwoofer. I have 2 for stereo sound. The only thing I wish was some kind of mount for a speaker stand. I used velcro to help keep my speaker put on the stand, otherwise its a great sounding speaker.

    Had a touch time figuring out between Bose and JBL. But as I walked into the store and after listening a couple of them from displays. I was tempted by how the exterior looked and gave it a shock. I believe the only shock that i got was how immersive and rich the bass/mids and highs were on this speaker. It caught my attention and immediately grabbed one off the shelf. Checked out and did not know it was WIFI compatible. I was fascinated that you are able to connect these to multiple SONOS speakers.

    Great speaker! The Sonos five is the best wireless speaker you can buy, period. The Sonos app gave me things I did not know I wanted like a sleep timer, auto on, and more! You can even control the music from your computer, and not just your phone. If you have more Sonos speakers, you can listen to them all at the same time or turn certain ones on and off in the app. If you have them all playing, you can control each volume individually at the same time! If you have the Sonos Roam too, it will auto turn on when you play your music and auto turn off when you are done. I also have Bose and the Google home max, but the Sonos Five beats them both. Not by much, but it does beat them (sounds better. the bass in the Sonos Five is crazy deep). However, the Sonos app beats them all, hands down!

    Love the pair of Sonos 5s that I purchased. Originally looked at Sonos One but found these were better all around to connect to my Sonos system and also use it to connect to my MacBook Pro and the newest Apple TV.

    Probably the best Sonos speaker

    I wish I would have purchased the Sonos Five years ago! I've had several Sonos Play 1's throughout my home for at least 5 years now and I use them all the time. I always wished the Play 1's had more bass or more robust sound, but was always hesitant to buy a Sonos Five due to the cost. I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase one and I am extremely glad I did and as I said earlier, I wish I would have done it years ago. I have a Sonos Five and 2 Play 1's in a very large room and you can definitely tell when the Sonos Five is not turned on. I played several different songs and would turn the Five off and on and you can definitely tell how much extra sound the Five adds.
