Thread: Sonos Play:5

  1. #1


    Sonos Play:5

    Anyone have one of these or heard one? I'm doing a little research (can't say why just yet, but will fill you in later) and could use some 'audiophile' opinions of this, the "best" mass-market wireless speaker. (Keep in mind that unlike a lot of these, the Play:5 isn't Bluetooth compatible, only wifi and direct in.

    It's $499. Does that seem too high?

    Would this (or anything like it) in any conceivable way be the main way you listen to your music?

    And just any thoughts in general.

    Brandon, I have a play five and the play three and even the smaller one. I believe that the three is the best value but the five certainly plays well and sounds well. Understanding that it has an amp built into it I still think it's a bit overpriced also. But it sounds remarkably well. Since I am generally only hearing the radio over it, although you can't attach a CD player., it does sound very good. I do not use it for my main system.
