About The Sonos Five Wireless Speaker
The Sonos Five builds on the strengths of the Play:5 Gen 2. It features the same iconic design and big bold sound but is now enhanced with updated internal technology including increased memory and a more powerful CPU with more processing power for improved performance. Sonos has again raised the bar and shown just how good a wireless streaming multi-room speaker can be.
The Sonos Five continues the Play:5 Gen 2’s strength of being an ideal speaker for larger rooms. The Sonos Five is ideal for spaces with vaulted ceilings, open kitchen/family rooms and other large rooms. Sonos gave it six built-in synchronised drivers to deliver rich, vibrant sound. Convenient soft-touch controls allow you to effortlessly skip songs and adjust volume with just a touch of your hand. You'll get top-notch, room-filling sound from a speaker that easily fits on a counter in the kitchen or an end table in the living room.
Sonos Five, controlled by the all-new Sonos S2 app, brings the same iconic design and big bold sound with updated internals including increased memory and processing power. For more information on Sonos S2 please click here.
Rich Deep Bass: Five’s unrivalled acoustic design features three custom-designed, high-excursion woofers within a sealed architecture that eliminates reverb and echo.
Ultra Wide Soundstage: Two precisely angled side tweeters create spatial extension and rich stereo sound while a centre tweeter optimises vocal playback.
Smart Stereo Sound: When positioned horizontally, Five automatically separates the left and right channels for impressive stereo sound. Pair two speakers vertically and each smartly adjusts itself for more detailed stereo separation and an even wider soundstage.
Enhanced With TruePlay: Sonos Trueplay puts the speaker-tuning capability of recording pros in the palm of your hands, customising the sound of the speaker to the unique acoustics of any room.
Voice Control: Wirelessly connect a voice-enabled device, such as an Amazon Echo Dot or Google Home Mini, for hands-free control of your music and more
Line-In & Play: Using the 3.5mm auxiliary input you can connect your turntable, CD player or other device and enjoy quality sound through the Five and every other Sonos product it is connected to throughout your home.
Timeless Design Plus White-On-White: The Five has a truly enduring design that continues to fit perfectly into any space, Five is available in black with a black grille and, for the first time, white with a white grille. Hallelujah.
A Closer Look
Inside View: The Five uses six state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with six speakers to deliver great sound in any room. Each instrument, each voice, every detail shines through, pure and precise with remarkably distinct clarity and zero audible distortion. Even when you crank it up loud. Really loud. The Five’s all digital sound architecture provides precise sound reproduction, just as the artist intended. All filter settings, active equalisation and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry, so there's absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.
Use Five on it’s own or stereo paired with another Five and you can always include a Sonos Sub for better bass (and better clarity throughout the frequency range on the Five – which no longer needs to produce bass). You can also use a pair of Fives as rears in a Sonos home theatre system in a bigger room.
Fine Tune Your Five With Sonos Trueplay: Trueplay fine tunes your Sonos speaker for spot-on playback of what the artist recorded. As flawlessly perfect or beautifully imperfect as they played it. With nothing tweaked. And nothing lost.
Trueplay tuning takes about 3 minutes and uses your iPhone or iPad to measure how sound reflects off walls, furnishings and other surfaces in a room. Then it adjusts your Sonos speaker to make sure it sounds great, no matter where you've placed it. Trueplay listens to a sound played from your Sonos speaker through the microphone inside your iOS device. Trueplay then adjusts your Sonos speaker to sound at its very best in the location it finds itself in.
Control Sonos Five With The S2 Sonos App: Use your Apple or Android device to control your Sonos Five. Download the free S2 Sonos app and it turns your smart phone or tablet into a fully-fledged Sonos controller. Easily navigate and search through playlists and tracks stored on your computer, or select an Internet radio station or stream from your favourite music service like Spotify, Deezer & Tidal. Create customised playlists on the fly for individual rooms or for playback over your entire Sonos system. You can also mute or adjust the volume of each of your players. Got a desktop computer or laptop? Then use the Sonos Controller for Mac or PC for added control. They all work together seamlessly so mix and match to your hearts content.

Our Take On The Sonos Five Wireless Speaker
The Sonos Play:5 changed the game when it was released back in 2009. Back then the Play:5 established a whole new category of product – a wireless streaming speaker, able to be teamed with other Sonos products, moved from room to room and play music throughout your house. With the ability to play tunes from your music library, online music services, internet radio or direct from your mobile device, the Play:5 was a revelation and redefined the quality of sound one could expect from a one box solution. The Play:5 Gen 2 built on the strengths of the original and added some exciting new features.
The Five brings Sonos into the 2020’s with a new S2 App with infinite possibilities for the future combined with updated internal technology including increased memory and a more powerful CPU with more processing power for improved performance. It still produces room filling sound, can be stereo paired with another Five and a Sonos Sub can be included for better bass. You can also use a pair of Fives as rears in a Sonos home theatre system in a bigger room.
We are a team of true audio nuts and love with a passion every type of music reproduction from vinyl to the latest in streaming devices. What's more, we were one of the very first stores in Australia approached to sell Sonos (mid 2005) and although we now have expanded with an incredibly comprehensive range of wireless speakers, Sonos never ceases to amaze us. Not only does it have the biggest product range, but it is just so simple to setup and enjoy. Reliable? Let's put it this way. We've sold thousands of pieces and to date have only had a handful of items that were faulty. We’re pretty excited about the Sonos Five and we think you will be too. Any questions, then give us a call because we really know Sonos!
