Summary: Day 1 easy installment, took servicedesk weeks to respond to a question why I always get a warning about allowing the Sonos interface to run on a mac with Mountain Lion related to permissions required at set up to open the firewall. Sent a diagnostic report immediately and haven't heard a word back from the service department. It's now 2 months later. Wake up, Sonos, after sales service is what makes or breaks your reputation.
Pros: Easy To Transport, Great Sound
Cons: Irritating Interface, Just Use Itunes, Warning Firewall Always
Summary: I think the sounds quality is good, and it performs with few drop-outs. The interface is a deal-breaker were I to do it again. Compare the features Sirus has on their internet service compared to the 40% of feature that Sonos interfaces accommodates. Unacceptable. If it were Airplay, I'd be perfectly happy. I don't need another tedious interface standing between me and my music.
Summary: i could not get this to work in my medium sized house. i gor extremely poor advice at multiple steps, mostly from BEst Buy but also from Verizon. WHile the price for the Play5 was attractive what it actually would have cost to get this properly set up in my house was several times more. After me wasting 1 month of dealing with this I returned the Play5 and purchased a much cheaper unit that will play music from the iPHone on my patio, my original intent.
Pros: Great Sound
Cons: Impractical In My House, Many Technical Issues W S, Poor Support From Best Bu, Por Support From Verizon
Summary: I'm into the Sonos System for a decent amount of money. I've purchased for a Play 5, sound bar, three different Play 3, and a Sub. I think I made a mistake – I maybe should have bought another system or something a little more specialized, maybe my mistake for thinking this would work.
Summary: Basically, the sound is mediocre, it does not have the range or depth that I expected. Secondly, the mobile app is sub-par at best. It is hard to navigate and is missing some key functions which would allow one to say, shuffle a playlist. Lastly, it is very lame that you have to use the SONOS app to play music wire-less.
Summary: I bought this product so I could listen to my Spotify, Stitcher, and Audible accounts in my condo. I loved the speakers, how they look, their sound quality and ease to initially set up the speaker system, 5 stars! The everyday user experience to manage my content however is only 2 stars (Which I think may be being generous). I am not happy and greatly disappointed with the user interface in both my app and the software on my computer.
Pros: Different Music, Different Rooms, Expandable, Free Control Options, Superior Sound
Summary: Originally I brought this product so I can link it to the sound bar, then when the sound bar finally came out it was not compatible for surround sound purposes. So then I decided to use it for my bedroom speaker. First my husband discovered that he can not stream music from his android, he must hook it up directly.
Pros: Different Music, Different Rooms, Expandable, Superior Sound, Wireless
Summary: I planned to listen to the Sonos Play: 5 as I set it up. I plugged my phone into the accessory jack and hit play. Nothing happened. It turns out that the Sonos Play: 5 is absolutely useless until it is set up and linked with your WiFi system. When I purchased the player I was aware that it needed to be connected to WiFi to play music wirelessly, however I figured the accessory jack would work without having to be set up.
