New and Improved
Sonos aficionados know that this is the first time in history that the largest speaker in their flagship line has been updated. And, seeing and hearing the new Sonos Play:5, we can see why.
An incredible amount of attention to detail has been put into the new Sonos Play:5, from design to performance. The newly updated speaker can now be consistently positioned horizontally, vertically, or paired horizontally, all with no sound distortion. That’s a feat that not many speaker companies can achieve. Additionally, the drivers, mid-woofers and tweeters have been improved to provide a crisper, richer and more bass-driven sound quality. Learn more on the Sonos website >
The New Design
The enclosure is sleek and beautiful with two color options – matte black and matte white, both of which are available at House of Music. The attention to detail is evident here, with custom power plugs created just for beauty’s sake, clean lines and a subdued curved shape that looks great at every angle, and capacitive keys that replace the physical buttons of the first generation model.
Connectivity Made Easy
Connectivity is crucial to today’s discerning audiophile, especially when it comes to multi-room speakers, and the Sonos Play:5 has been updated on a variety of fronts. The Sonos Play:5 utilizes the newly developed TruePlay software, which automatically accounts for the acoustics of the room and adjusts the speaker’s EQ settings for best sound quality. The new sync button allows for easy connection to your devices, and the Sonos controller app allows for streaming almost any service in one, coherent interface.
