Excerpt: This is probably my 7th or 8th Sonos component. Love the system. A simple press of a button to set things up. With the Android and iPhone apps, there's no need to put out for added controllers. But I have two controllers from when I bought the system years ago and I love them both.
Excerpt: Sonos has done a great job at creating an integrated wireless speaker system, who's software is as well made as the hardware itself. You can set alarms, play radio, your iTunes music library, and internet music providers as well. It also looks nice as well.
Excerpt: The Sonos system is definitely worth the money. Set up was a bit challenging at times. Had to do a system update 3 times before it ran. The bass isn't as loud as my old system with the subwoofer...but plenty adequate for our needs. Plus, I could always add the Sonos subwoofer.
Excerpt: I bought the Play: 5 because of its line in feature. Once I got it home and hooked up, I found out it's even better than I'd thought! It turns out that I can plug something into the line-in jack -- in my case, an Apple Airport Express -- and 'tune' my Play: 1 to the input on the Play: 5!
Excerpt: these are better sounding than Bowes speakers. these are very easy to install and configure. easy iPhone control. We are using these in a showroom wired to the network. the wireless is great at home but in the showroom these is a lot of noise on the 2.4ghz and these speakers shut down every once in...
Excerpt: The Sonos Play 5 sounds great for the size speaker system that it is. The control software works great on my Samsung S5 (Android version 4.4.4) but not so great on my HTC Thunderbolt (Android version 4.0.4); it too often loses the Sonos network and can not find it for a while.
Pros: Easy To Transport, Great Interface, Great Sound
