Utter trash
Hardware is decent. Nice quality. Software on the other hand is garbage. Want to install on a PC and stream music from there? Perfect! Just need to install the software on a mobile device first....Oh! Your business only has an outdated iPad? Sorry! You can't actually set up your overpriced WiFi bricks. Simplicity is beauty and unfortunately Sonos is looking ugly these days.

Great sound quality but, I wouldn't purchase again
I use this primarily to listen to my Itunes music which this works great. However, when I attempt to use the SONOS interface to listen to other pod casts or other audio files from different apps it doesn't work as well. The best part about the speaker is that the sound quality is great! If they resolved my app interface issue, or provide better capabilities to directly connect via cable with my phone to play audio from my phone I would definitely buy more speakers and recommend them more.

Easy set up, delightful sound !
I am very impressed with the overall quality of my Sonos system and especially the ease of application in setting it up. This should be expected with the hefty price tag, but in the end worth the money put forward.

This fills a large master suite with amazing music. I'm excited to get another for stereo separation one day.

Great Speaker Can't Wait For Another
I have been eyeing a Sonos system for the better part of 3 years now and the only thing that has kept me from purchasing one before now is the cost. I finally decided to treat myself and I am so happy that I did. Immediately after setup (5 minutes tops) I was listening to music in HI-FI Quality and I am already plotting the purchase of my second Play 5 and Sub. Hopefully, it doesn't take me another 3 years to come up with the $$.

I would recommend this product to anyone that can afford it!

Play:5 Rocks
Sonos 5 is good. The sound is great right out of the box. I was skeptical about the room tuning but if you have a standard room the sound goes from great to great-er. Non-standard rooms, like my U shaped living room is outside of the capacity of the unit. Mid range volumes there is a crispness in strings, and a depth in vocals. High volumes the bass really kicks it but the sound goes "party," read "booming bass," rather than maintaining the full range. Streaming music through the controller is clumsy. I haven't had any issue with wireless falling out or having to reset. If I did I was planning on buying Boost (99) to resolve.

Make the line in on the Play 5 to automatically switch from line in to surround rear speaker without having to reconfigure the speakers
