      I absolutely listen to music way to much. This sound system is amazing, and is going to be replacing my old(ish) Sony 500 watt sound system. It sounds so good!

      What I expected!

      I've long had my eye on Sonos, and this speaker didn't disappoint. Finally pulled the trigger on this expensive system, and I say system, because I bought four. I've long had my eye on Sonos, and this speaker didn't disappoint. Finally pulled the trigger on this expensive system, and I say system, because I bought four. Two 5's, an two 1's. I hear individuals say they're overrated, but I'm truly impressed with the separation in the music I'm playing through it. I like that it's WiFi, and can live without it being Bluetooth enabled as well, due to the sound downgrade. I do feel Sonos should loosen the reins a little, and allow more control to the user, rather than everything going through their proprietary software, which is a bit clunky. But I understand this is what most companies want these days, closed gardens. Because I'm sure they're looking for ways to somehow monetize their software.

      Wonderful Speaker, Apple Music Fans Beware

First the good news: The s Ended up with two Play 5's and one Play 3. Decided to get them after reading Sonos supported Apple Music (AM), which I subscribed to. First the good news: The speakers sound great, are easy to set up and manage, and can replace cumbersome wired systems. I have the two Play 5's paired in my living room, and the sound is phenomenal. No subwoofer needed. I just marvel at the "wall of sound" which envelopes you while listening. My Play 3 is in the kitchen and also sounds great in the smaller room. Now for the bad news: although technically Sonos supports Apple Music, you have to use the Sonos app (not the Apple Music App). The dumbed down features of accessing AM this way is a disappointment. So much so, that I switched from Apple Music (which I preferred) to Spotify. Spotify and Sonos worked together so that you can use the Spotify app on Sonos. Apple should get over itself, and do this also. I would come running back to AM. Barring that, I find Spotify more than acceptable.

      Outstanding piece of equipment.

      You know you've just purchased an awesome speaker when it even makes low bitrate Pandora sound excellent!

Setup was a bit cumbersome due to me needing to change some network settings, but it's of course a one time thing. Also a bit disappointing that the system does not use Airplay, but the Sonos native app actually works pretty well. Sound wise, this thing is worth every penny. That is all. Now, go buy one!

      Multi room use speakers!

      Sonos is great for home speakers designed to work on a wi if network. These are not blue tooth! They are a dream speaker for someone who wants to have a multi r Sonos is great for home speakers designed to work on a wi if network. These are not blue tooth! They are a dream speaker for someone who wants to have a multi room setup. They sound excellent and true play is in the sonos app that allows one to tune these speakers to match the room they are placed in. They work well in a home wi if system with a boost device. The play ones play alone well but 2 can be paired together in one room for stereo or they can be unpaired to play in separate rooms. This is true of the play 3 and the play 5 as well. On their sides the play 3 and 5 are stereo vertically they are mono,the play one are mono speakers when played separately alone. Anyone with an apple computer should have these in their home set up. I use apple radio,pandora,accu radio,tune in radio,Sirius radio,MLB to name just a few of the many applications with my set up. If you have an older hi fi you can use a sonos connect as a tuner. You like a set of speakers? Use the sonos connect amp through a headphone jack on the apple computer and you have your favorite older speakers as powered speakers for your computer. Nice purchase!
