    Awesome Sound, Solid App, Finicky Connection?

    |
    Posted .

    The Play:5 was my first SONOS purchase. Since buying the first one, I've added a second Play:5 and also a SONOS Connect, so my Sony 5.1 home theater system could get into the act. While the individual pieces are expensive, the product is truly premium. The Play:5's sound great. i have mine on opposite ends of the house (2,700 sq ft), with my home theater in the central, great room. Even with only 1 speaker in a room, the Play:5's do a great job simulating stereo sound. Music is sounds full, with good bass and clear highs. Walking through the house, I've even found myself thinking my Sony system sounds a little "tinny" in comparison. The App is solid, though not perfect. The "group" function also me to play the same music in multiple rooms, and I love that I can change volume in each room individually, on the fly. However, I wish SONOS would take it a step further - Let me build different preset groups with specific volumes for different situations. If i'm cleaning my house, i want all speakers playing pretty loud. If the baby is napping, i probably want those speakers turned way down or off completely. The ability to do that without breaking and rebuild my group every time would be a game changer, all over again. I do like the new integration with Spotify's app, though i generally go through the SONOS app to stream from Spotify, so I can use the volume adjustments. I only have 2 gripes about the system so far: One, the system seems to lose connection to WiFi pretty often. Sometimes I can't connect to my speakers to start (or stop) music. Be warned if you have spotty internet connection: if the 'net goes down, your SONOS speakers are well designed paper weights. The second gripe is the 3.5mm headphone jack on the back of the Play:5. When my internet went down, i thought - "at least i can still plug my iPhone in and play music in one room." Nope. I tried everything. My phone would stream music just fine, but plug it into the Play:5, and there was no sound. I haven't proven it yet, but I think the Play:5 requires an internet connection to play music, even when using the 3.5mm jack. Those two gripes aside, I will be buying more. I would recommend SONOS to any friend with a solid (non-metered) internet connection.

    Amazing Sound and Easy to Setup!

    |
    Posted .

    The Sonos ecosystem is, by far, the best you can get in it's class for wifi-based music players. Having purchased nearly everything Sonos makes, this addiction doesn't seem to end. The Class D circuitry within every single driver stage independently, shines through with unparalleled performance matching or even destroying some of the most prestigious brands I've ever owned. Each and every time I have done this, I have been left speechless. When considering how is it even possible for these small-footprinted speakers to compete so effortlessly, I'm reminded of that difference between excellence and mediocre that separates the finite resolution and nuances of my favorite Miles Davis album (Sketches of Spain) in contrast to the essence of the sultry and jazzy voice of Helen Merrill's Born to Be Blue. Well??? What about the mediocre? It's non-existent with Sonos speakers. My home is routered by the Nighthawk X8 connected directly to my fiber connection. I am a long time user of Spotify Premium. Having said that, between that source, my KS9800 Samsung 4k TV and my Marantz TT-15S1 turntable, the quality resonating from the Play 5's, as well as all of the other Sonos products within every room, is just simply stunning. The highs are of the crispest highs and the lows do hit with a decisive precision you can feel. Regarding connectivity, it's as easy as 1,2,3... Any 8 year old could follow the directions, literally. As for the cost for ownership, how can you question the value of Sonos speakers after you've paid thousands for other speaker systems that can't compare to them whatsoever? My only wish would be that this sytem was available 25 years ago when I began my quest for "audio utopia." So, do yourself a favor, and give them a listen. Get them home and do it on a 30 day test drive. See for yourself...nothing compares to these quality-infused speakers, even at twice their price!!

    Audiophile Review / Bluetooth Adapter Available

    Posted .

    I was very impressed upon my first encounter with the second generation Play5 that I listened to on a display shelf. I purchased a Play5 several weeks later and was even more impressed with this speaker after getting it home and utilizing the customized room tuning feature and adjusting treble and bass to my preference. The high frequencies are crisp and clear and the bass is incredible for this size of a speaker. You can actually feel the bass! Each of the six speakers has it's own independent amplifier that results in full caption of power throughout the speaker. After enjoying listening to some of my favorite songs through the Play5 and discovering that it had a feature in the settings to add another Play5 that you could play in stereo mode, I went out and bought another one. Purchasing the second Play5 created true stereo sound with both speakers working independently of one another providing greater depth and sound. The only thing missing with the Play5 is Bluetooth! This is why I gave it 4 stars as opposed to 5! However, I purchased a Logitech Bluetooth adapter that plugs into the back of the Sonos Play5 and now can stream directly from other devices that I utilize for music, videos, and " books on tape". Note: If you have two Sonos speakers playing in stereo mode you will only need one Bluetooth adapter. Sound will be played through both speakers when the "In Line" feature in Sonos settings is activated. Hopefully this review has been informative and has given you the confidence to purchase your own Sonos Play5.

    Better than Bose... seriously.

    Posted .

    I purchased both the Sonos Play 5 and the "equivalent" Bose SoundTouch 30 and took them back to my apartment. I am building a house and plan on outfitting at least 14 speakers, so I wanted to be sure I purchased the right one. I put them side by side (see picture) and put each speaker through its paces. I tested several songs from pop, classical, rap, country, rock... look I'll just sum this up: The Sonos Play 5 beat the Bose system hands down. I was legit surprised. I figured the Bose would have better sound quality and the Sonos would have a better interface. Nay I say. Nay. One of the biggest things that stuck out to me was you can adjust the bass and treble on the Sonos. With the Bose, you can only adjust the bass DOWN from the standard. Bose works on 5G, Sonos does not. The Sonos Play series is awesome. The interface, the sound quality... there's nothing wrong with it.

    First of all, the sound and deep bass acoustics make any genre of music come to life. Because it’s played through the wireless internet and an app, there’s never any interruption ion to music. You can even leave the house with your phone and the music still plays! Best addition to the home for quality sound day in day out.

    I’m not sure of a better overall speaker/software combo than this speaker. It just amazes me every time I listen to it, this was a 2nd play 5 purchase, it’s that good.

    Sonos makes the at home listening experience very easy and efficient while providing great sound quality. I happen to have their other products but recently splurged on this Play:5 to connect to my AudioTechnica turntable First the sound. This speaker has an array of 6 drivers that provide a great sound stage when listening to your music. I have heard that stereo pairing two of these Play:5s takes it to another level, but that will happen on day with more saving! I have a large open living area and this speaker completely fills out the entire space with fantastic sound that will always get compliments at parties The design of the speaker is modern, sleek, and very appealing in the home. Switching from streaming audio over to my line-in input for records is very easy with the autoplay feature I grew up in an audiophile home and this speaker is certainly a fantastic quality product and incredibly user friendly and easy to use. High recommended to anyone!

    Great product, could use graphic equalizer

    |
    Posted .

    The speaker itself is an amazing product, especially when paired with a second play5, creating true stereo sound. My only complaint is with the Sonos app not having a true graphic equalizer available to fine tune the sound. At the very least there needs to be a 3 channel with low mid and high. As of right now there is only bass, treble and balance. The speaker is AMAZING but with out a mid level adjuster, can sound a bit hollow and echo-ey....trying to make up for it by cranking treble can’t be good for tweeters

    This speaker has to be the best speaker at this size you can buy. At times you would literally think there was a sub in the room. I cannot say enough about the overall sound of this speaker. If you are on the fence about getting this or spending the amount, don't be, trust me!!

    I guess I was reading a lot of good reviews about this speaker so there was a hype for it. They had some bass but not as much as the Sonos subwoofer. Overall, much better than the Play 1s.

    audiophile pleasure

    I have been listening to play 5 excellent music reproduction for a week now. I was not hoping anywhere near to this good, The vocals are absolutely clear and bass is astonishingly tight & powerful. I have 5.1 Martin Logan + Marantz setup and comparing play 5 to that would be foolish. But, I find myself listening to play 5 more often these days out of amazement.
