Sonos Play:5 is the company's best-sounding wireless speaker yet

 

In the last few years Sonos has been steadily adding wireless speakers to its multiroom audio lineup, but its flagship tabletop speaker, the Play:5 hasn't changed in 6 years. Until now, that is. This is the new Play:5 (2015), and it's a bigger,...

The second-generation Sonos Play:5 is a sleek, well-designed Wi-Fi speaker that delivers rich sound for its size and strong bass. It offers the full Sonos wireless experience, controllable from iPhone, iPad and Android apps, with compatibility with...

Fairly pricey, especially if you want to buy a second one for stereo sound

Just when you thought a speaker couldn't get any better, Sonos releases not only an exceptional new Play:5 model but an app that can make your existing Sonos speakers sound better than ever before. The Sonos app that allows users to control their music...

Sonos has managed to make a good speaker even better with the Play:5. It’s not the cheapest wireless multiroom speaker on the market but it’s certainly one of the best and worth every dollar to anyone who values good sound.

Review: Sonos Play:5

 

Six years is a long time in the tech world. Back in 2009, we were all proudly carrying around netbooks, the iPad didn't exist and we were only just getting to grips with some streaming company called Spotify. Dark days, indeed.

A reinvention in all but name, the new Play:5 offers even more boom for your buck.
