Summary: The Play: 5 easily integrates into a whole-home audio system, which is a rare trait in a wireless speaker. The sound quality is decent, but it is less flexible than other models because the speaker must be connected to a Wi-Fi network to function wirelessly.
Pros: Setting up this wireless speaker is simple.
Cons: You have to be connected to a Wi-Fi network to unlock this speaker's functionality.
Conclusion: Whether you're considering the ZonePlayer S5 as an addition to an existing Sonos system, or simply as a portable standalone audio system, it's a smart, compact device with sound quality that belies its small size.
Pros: Easy setup, Surprisingly good sound quality, Loads, loads, and more loads of music services available, Free Sonos Controller iPhone/iPod touch app is the cat's pajamas with bees' knees printed on them
Cons: The S5 isn't quite as "all-in-one" as its name implies, since the proprietary network makes two ZonePlayers or a ZoneBridge necessary for wireless access, adding to the cost, While setup is easy, if you run into any snags they're hard to fix, Sonos wants the thing back when I'm finished reviewing it
Conclusion: If you don’t mind splashing the cash on some audio equipment, then we can’t recommend the PLAY:5 enough. It’s very pleasing on the eye, and its simple design means it’ll fit into the decor of any home.
Excerpt: Although we're massive fans of Sonos' incredible multi-room music system, the one minor problem has always been flexibility: you either had to have an existing stereo or powered speakers and buy the ZonePlayer 90 (ZP90), or buy the ZonePlayer 120 (ZP120) and a pair of ordinary speakers.
Summary: Sonos Play:5 leverer testens næstbedste lyd. Brugerfladen er den mest gennemarbejdede, opsætningen er simpel, og udvalget af streaming-tjenester er suverænt. Og det uden at koste mere end de andre store højttalere i testen.
Cons: Bortset fra manglende understøttelse af HD-lydfiler er der ingen rimelige indvendinger.
Summary: Jeg kan ikke lide denne højtaler, jeg synes systemet med et ekstra netværk og en lukket app er for besværligt også er lyden heller ikke genial, de skal tag og ligge nogen bedre højtalere i deres dimser også slå en aftale af med apple om airplay, så kan den bruges med begge dele, hvilket i mit...
