Complexity of setup and requirement of wireless network for a speaker with an audio cable makes this a virtually useless product

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 December 2015
  • Summary: I purchased one of these about 2 years ago to put in a garage gym for music, and I have another Play5 and a Play3. This Play5 worked fine for 2 years, then just stopped working. It cannot reconnect to the controller and cannot play over WiFi or connected with a cable.

Most counter-intuitive interface EVER!

Andre, Amazon
25 December 2015
  • Summary: How can you give this product decent reviews? Forget the sound quality, the Sonos app is absolutely terrible. Sonos and their engineers have successfully created, the least intuitive system in recent history. What other device has to be recalibrated, every single time it is unplugged?

  • Summary: Bought this several years ago at best buy. It works great when it is connected. Most of the time I have to go through the new set up every time which rarely works.

  • Summary: I have a Sonos controller and two of the Play:5 speakers that are being replaced by this new model. Before you consider purchasing this or other Sonos equipment, there's something you should know: Unlike with other consumer electronics equipment, all Sonos updates are mandatory.

No Windows Phone or Windows store apps

  • Summary: Microsoft is making the best hardware for tablets/phones & gaming consoles. I'm disappointed Sonos hasn't made a universal Windows app to run on Xbox, Surface, Lumia devices and more. Disappointing.

Not a good experience for me

EDGAR MENDIZABAL, Amazon
15 September 2015
  • Summary: It is a year and a half and my system still does not work, either wired (that does not make sense because this is supposed to be a wireless system) or wireless. It occasionally works, but occasionally is not good enough. I bought a bridge to no avail.
