Summary: I bought the Play:5 after being extremely impressed with the Play:1 and thinking that the 5 will sound better in a larger room. Adding the speaker to the existing network was easy and I like the fact that it has an audio line-in to play music from a phone or tablet directly. The sound is good (I play mostly classical and other orchestral music such as soundtracks) but getting a second Play:1 and pairing them would have been an equally good option for me.
Summary: I bought my second PLAY:5 over the holidays. I have a mix of Sonos devices throughout the house and they all have worked to my great satisfaction. The PLAY:5 is great to fill a room with music. No, it won't please purists - its just one speaker. But the variety of devices available and the quality of sound makes it a great wireless system.
Summary: I had 3 zones of Sonos in my home. The room I use as a home office / study / library had no music. I didn't want to hardwire in speakers. Sonos made it easy. It is a small room, so one Sonos Play 5 is all I need.
Summary: This is my third Sonos product. I love the interface: elegant and easy-to-use. Sound quality is good. Portability (for the quality) is excellent. I use the Play: 5 in the bathroom, workroom, etc. Streaming is reliable and, so far, flawless.
Summary: Bought the sonos so I could have music on my patio, for parties and lazy afternoons. Its so much more convenient than either having to unplug and cart out the old sound system and speakers or turn the music up inside so we could hear it outside, deafening everyone inside. Everyone is so surprised by the sound quality and clarity.
Pros: Easy To Transport, Easy to USe, Great Interface, Great Sound, Stylish
Summary: The interface is versatile, and easy to use. The sound is much better than I expected. I find I use it daily, and Slacker and Pandora have exposed me to some different performers. Easy access to my extensive music library is a plus, when I have something specific in mind. I'm buying more...
