The Sonos PLAY:5 Wireless Multi-room Speaker is a high-quality 5-way speaker unit for use with your existing Sonos Digital Music System. It provides fantastic sound quality in any room of your home, with audio streamed over the SonosNet 2.0 mesh networking system.
A multi-room music system
Expand your home audio experience with Multi-room technology. Play almost any music track from any source - your personal collection, a streaming service or your phone - in any room you choose, all controlled by your Smartphone.
Multi-room offers the ultimate in audio convenience and control. Manage your music on one device and build your system by adding other compatible multi-room speakers and components made by the same brand.
Control each speaker independently to play different music in each room, or use them together to enjoy the same music throughout your home – you can even link up speakers to create your own 5.1 sound system.
Five Class-D digital amplifiers provide the power for the 5 speaker drivers, which include 2 tweeters, 2 mid-range drivers, and a subwoofer. The result is superb sound quality across a wide frequency range. The Sonos PLAY:5 can rival much larger and more complicated speaker setups in terms of sheer audio reproduction.
Best of all, the Sonos PLAY:5 Wireless Multi-room Speaker is exceptionally easy to use. You can control the device with the free Sonos Controller app for your iPhone or iPod touch, which allows you to navigate the vast array of music on the internet and your Mac or PC. Of course you can also control the PLAY:5 from your Mac or PC directly, or add a Sonos Controller 200 for even more flexibility.
Exciting Sonos software upgrade
An amazing new addition to the capabilities of the Sonos system, Sonos have now released a free upgrade available on all new and already purchased Sonos systems.
Sonos now has the same technology as AirPlay and Bluetooth, playing music directly from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch with iOS6. Combine this with the reliable signal, easy setup and uncompromised sound quality promised by Sonos, and you have limitless possibilities for audio around your home.
With this Sonos update you can play music in sync between rooms on Sonos speakers, or play different tunes in each room all from your Apple device. You can now allow up to 32 people to add music to a playlist in any room using their own iPhone, to create wonderfully interactive party nights.
Sonos Android compatibility
Play music from your Android phone or tablet through your Sonos wireless device. If you have Android 2.1 or higher (Android 2.2 and higher is required for podcasts), it only takes three easy steps. Update your Sonos Controller for Android to software version 4.1.1 - the rest of your Sonos components do not require an update.
When you've confirmed your Android device is on your home wireless network, launch the Sonos Controller App. Select ‘This Mobile Device' from the Music menu and see all your device's music, playlists and podcasts ready for playback on your Sonos device.
For truly sophisticated wireless music, invest in the innovative Sonos PLAY:5 Wireless Multi-room Speaker.
PLEASE NOTE: Tracks downloaded direct from the Google Play Store are not immediately available for playback. To play these tracks through Sonos, you must download them from Google Play to a computer, and then transfer them to your Android device's Music folder.
