The original Sonos Play:5 released in 2009 was widely acclaimed and helped propel the company into today’s success. The new Sonos Play:5 presented here has big shoes to fill, fortunately it doesn’t disappoint.
The new Play:5 can now be orientated in three ways, horizontally or on either side vertically. This gives it greater flexibility for placement as well as a more ‘natural’ look when used in a stereo pair.
With the introduction of the new Play:5 comes Trueplay – new software Sonos has built into its app to optimize the sound of any Sonos wireless speaker in its location.
With a bigger, bolder, more powerful sound that goes low and wide without forgoing expression and clarity, there’s no doubt that the new Play:5 succeeds in completely overshadowing its predecessor.
Below are some of Sonos Play:5 features at a glance:
Line-in – Plug in any audio device—from your record player to a friend’s phone—and listen to your favorite music on your PLAY:5. You can also send the music from your PLAY:5 to any other Sonos speaker in your home.
Touch controls – Tap for the volume. Swipe to change the track. Right from the PLAY:5 speaker itself. Perfect for when your phone is in hiding or out of reach.
Multiple orientations – Stand it tall or set it on its side. Either way, PLAY:5 automatically optimises the sound. When it’s horizontal, it’s in stereo. When it’s vertical, it’s in mono. The rubber feet on three sides make it safe for any surface.
Humidity resistant – We built PLAY:5 humidity resistant so you can enjoy your favourite songs in music-starved places like bathrooms and outdoor patios. All you need is WiFi access and a place to plug it in. Just remember, it’s not waterproof or weather resistant.
Play music from Spotify straight to Sono:5 – Enjoy all the personalized Spotify playlists and other listening features you love and more, streaming in perfect sound on your Sonos speakers, without needing to open your Sonos app.
Over 60,000 hole-grille – Stand it tall or set it on its side. Either way, PLAY:5 automatically optimizes the sound. When it’s horizontal, it’s in stereo. When it’s vertical, it’s in mono. The rubber feet on three sides make it safe for any surface.
