Great Sound for the size and price
Great quality, nice crisp sound for a speaker of this size. Slightly under powered with respect to volume filling large open spaces but that is a minor point overall. I’d still recommend. Service at World Wide Stereo was terrific. They are my go to source.

I replaced components and speakers with Sonos. Glad I did.
I have two of the Play 5's. Currently they're both in my garage as I'm spending most of my free time working on cars. These speakers have incredible sound quality! Glad I went wireless and that I chose Sonos!

The most fantastic product ever!!
My Sonos speakers are hands down my favorite thing that I own. I use them all day everyday. The sound is spectacular, and the system is able to provide music in many different ways, even tho I m pretty sure I'm not even aware of lots of them.The system is easy to set up, and if you have any problem at all, Sonos customer service is so great. They'll stay w you until all problems are solved. Priceless.

Very good product
Bought this product specifically for my turntable and the sound quality is very good. I wish it came with a remote control like our Bose unit had. The SONOS app on my phone is easy to use however others without the App have to get up and manually control.

Needs Bluetooth back up
The major con I have is that I use a lot of custom music that I cut from my phone and or computer and for some reason SONOS always drops the connection in the middle of the song, stops playing randomly, doesn't want to stop when I hit the stop button. My internet connection is fine. It would be really nice to have a bluetooth solution if these sort of things start to happen.

Happy with my purchase!
Everyone that visits is shocked by how great the sound is, I'm really pleased with the purchase. The only improvement would be the Sonos app which could be a tad more user friendly and a bit more stable (seems to crash/freeze every one in while)
