Sonos ZonePlayer S5

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: The Sonos Play:5 shrinks the Sonos streaming music experience down to a compact single-speaker system with great sound, which you can control from any iOS device or Android smartphone.
  • Cons: While the Play:5 can wirelessly interact with other Sonos products, you'll need a hard-wired connection or the $49 wireless bridge accessory if it's your only Sonos component; somewhat expensive; not much stereo separation.

Test Sonos PLAY:5 : une enceinte autonome robuste

Clubic
20 February 2014
  • Conclusion: La S5 rebaptisée PLAY:5 procure autant de confort que de plaisir à l'utilisation. Sonos a réussi à produire une enceinte modestement encombrante mais tout de même puissante et fidèle. Alors certes la diffusion sonore émanant d'un monobloc ne peut pas être aussi ample que depuis une Hi-Fi à deux enceintes. Pas de drame cependant. Et si vous avez l'opportunité de lier deux PLAY:5 en paire stéréo par exemple, le rendu prend alors une véritable dimension !
  • Pros: Excellent son / mode stéréo, Ultra simple à mettre en place, Controller 200 / Interface agréable, Qualité de la liaison sans fil
  • Cons: Prix exorbitant !, Pas d'interrupteur marche arrêt, Plus d'intérêt avec au moins deux PLAY:5, Intégration de la M.O.D. améliorable...

PC World
17 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Nå som mange etter hvert har byttet ut cd-samlingen med digitale varianter - enten i form av mp3-filer eller streamingtjenester - er det for lengst på tide å oppgradere musikkanlegget i hjemmet deretter.
  • Pros: Enkel å sette opp, god lyd, mobilapper, Spotify-tilgang
  • Cons: Litt høy pris, mangler innebygd WiFi

Sonos Play:5

CNET
3 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Mise à jour : Avec le lancement de son nouveau module, Sonos en fait évoluer le nom. Il ne s'agit plus des ZonePlayer mais des Play. Le ZonePlayer S5 devient donc le Play:5 *** Le module Play:5 (ex S5) s’inscrit dans l’ écosystème Sonos . Un environnement totalement modulaire dédié au partage et à l’écoute « multi-room » de musique.  Le Play:5 se présente comme une enceinte amplifiée autonome capable de restituer la musique de façon totalement indépendante.
  • Pros: design, qualité du son, facilité d’utilisation, fonctionnalité de streaming à partir d’Internet ou du réseau domestique, les services en ligne disponibles, application télécommande pour iPod touch – iPad – iPhone, modularité.
  • Cons: prix, nécessité d’avoir un « Bridge » pour un seul module S5.
