Sonos Play 5 Wireless Speaker
Original, bigger room, bigger sound wireless speaker
The PLAY:5 uses 5 state-of-the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with 5 speakers to deliver superior sound to any room. A subwoofer produces powerful bass while two mid-range drivers and two tweeters fill out the sound.
Sonos will now operate across your existing WiFi network. If you have a great WiFi signal at home, simply set up a Sonos speaker wirelessly on your home WiFi network using the free Sonos controller app. This then allows you to enjoy your Sonos speakers in perfect sync, in every room.
If your home WiFi network isn’t quite reliable enough, Sonos offers a dedicated wireless network, eliminating interference and increasing range. You simply connect a Sonos Bridge to your router to create a completely separate wireless network. This then runs independently to your WiFi network, erradicating any interference from non-Sonos wireless devices.
The Play:5 is a quality solution which plays back music stored on your home network, or over 25,000 Internet radio stations. Control the Play:5 from your computer, using a CR200 wireless touchscreen controller or using the free app Sonos have created for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices (see video below).
What's more, you don't need to splurge on a full Sonos multiroom system to enjoy the Play:5. The Play:5 can be hard-wired into your router, or just plug a Sonos ZoneBridge in to your router to enable easy, wireless hookup of 1 or more Play:5s. But why stop there? You can enjoy music in every room with additional ZonePlayers. Two Play:5s make a perfect wireless stereo pair, or an ideal start to your multi-room system.
Take further advantage of the Play:5's high-performance, stereo amplifier and speaker system, thanks to spare inputs which enable easy MP3 or DAB radio connection - get proper hifi performance without the rigmarole. And, when the music becomes a distraction, just connect headphones!
In addition to the thousands of Internet radio, Napster and on-demand services, the Spotify service is also now available on Sonos, putting over 8 million tracks at your finger tips. All you need to do is create a Spotify Premium account, and you'll be able to access Spotify's huge on-line library. No more ripping CDs or waiting for music to download, simply stream from Spotify (see the video below). And it's all controllable from your smartphone or computer.
Thanks to Sonos' unique wireless mesh technology, the Play:5 runs off it's own network, meaning you can play back different music in each room, or the same music perfectly synchronised in all zones, with no drop-out in connection and without draining your home broadband connection.
Get your multi-room system started today, and enjoy all the music in the world, in every room, wirelessly, with the Sonos Play:5.
