Featuring top-panel touch controls and a mesh front, it epitomises a high-quality speaker.
Choose between a horizontal or vertical orientation to suit your layout. With rubber feet on three sides, you can stand it tall or set it on its side and the speaker will automatically optimise the sound for the chosen orientation
Updated Internals For An Enhanced Experience
Sonos have packed the new Five with upgraded internals including future-ready computing hardware.
It also boasts an increased memory and increased processing power as well as BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), NFC (Near Field Communication) and an updated wireless radio to provide a more powerful wifi connection.
Bold, Deep Bass, Pure And True
The biggest Sonos speaker packs a punch and connects you to the heartbeat of the music you love. Enjoy studio-quality, high-fidelity sound with deep, rich bass from three woofers packed into an unrivalled sealed architecture to prevent reverb and echo.
The three woofers team up with a trio of tweeters to enable remarkably distinct separation of voices and instruments like you’ve never heard before - from crisp high-frequency to deep bass. A phased speaker array design offers a wide stereo soundstage, directing sound to the left, right and centre.
The Five lets you hear and feel the emotion, energy and passion the artist packed into the original recording.
Superior Smart Stereo Sound
When used on its own and placed horizontally, Five automatically separates the left & right channels for impressive stereo sound.
For the real music-lovers out there, pair 2 x Sonos Five speakers to experience a true stereo soundstage. With this set-up, the speakers smartly adjust to mono to gain more detailed stereo separation ensuring you hear every instrument, voice and sonic detail as the artist intended.
Line-In - Connect Your Turntable & More
Use the 3.5mm jack line-in connection to play audio from a turntable, phone, laptop/PC or CD player. Once connected to the Five, you can send the audio to any other Sonos speakers in your system.
The line-in connection enables the Five to automatically detect when audio starts playing so you can start listening the second the needle hits the record.
Apple AirPlay 2, Amazon Echo & Google Home Compatible
Decide how you want to control your speaker. Use the Sonos App or cast audio straight from your Apple IOS device using Airplay 2.
If you want the convenience of voice control, you can pair any Amazon Echo or Google Assistant product with the Sonos Five and use your voice to play and control your music, podcasts, radio stations & more.
