Summary: If we could, we'd fill our houses with stunning Sonos hardware. The only problem would be figuring out how to pay for it all. The Sonos Play 5 is a fantastic home audio system and one we rate very highly indeed.
Cons: Very expensive; addictive -- you'll want one for each room; headphone output not brilliant.
Excerpt: The Sonos Play:5 shows just how far Sonos has come. Back in 2004, Sonos appeared with a multi-zone music system that anyone could buy and set up in minutes. It was perfectly pitched, stylistically and technologically – a premium-feeling proposition that we described as being 'as close to hi-fi as wi-fi gets'.
Pros: Dynamic, room-filling sound from a compact all-in-one, good bass depth and weight, solid build, impressive wireless network and features
Cons: If this is your first ZonePlayer you', ll need to wire it to your router or buy a £79 ZoneBridge, expensive standalone controller
