Pros The sound out of the S5 is great. Having one S5 where my computer is allows me to stream Grooveshark over the other Sonos components in my house (ZP90, ZP120) and having a separate S5 allows me to have a portable speaker for rooms without sonos.
Cons Speaker is a little bulky. Range of speaker wireless connectivity to other Sonos unit is about 60 feet; not terrible in my house but should be noted. Wired electricity is required; a rechargeable battery option would be nice.
Summary Not sure what else to say. I love it and plan to add more Sonos units/components to get music into each room!
Pros If it actually works, the system and sound are amazing.
Cons This system used to be flawless. But they have fallen victim to their own software updates.
Summary Entire system was amazing for 2 years. I bought these systems for myself and as gifts for others. I have multiples of each component. Currently, they are all unusable. With each software update it got worse. After most recent update it won't play anything from itunes and what it does play from other systems quickly turns to static. The iphone controller app also fails to work and after the most recent update, will not allow me to play 1/4 of my tracks claiming they are "unplayable." I will update if they provide any solutions."now" useless. This system cannot teach you how to spell.

Pros Bought the Play 5 and the bridge and had it all set up and synced within 10 mins, and that time included getting it out of the box. The sound is unbelievable!! Also, being able to play different songs on separate speakers is a great feature.
Cons Haven't found one yet
Summary Highly recommend, I will definitely be adding more Play 5 speakers to my system. I don't believe there is another system like it.
Pros Fantastic sound even at high volume. Just plug it in and do a little computer work and you are done.
Cons My wife would not have been able to set it up without me. One more thing, it's a little pricey.
Summary I liked the system so much, that I went back twice and each time ordered two more Play:5's. Now I have one or more in the kitchen, office, dining room, living room, bedroom, master bath, and patio.
Pros Incredible sound. Attractive. Easy to install, easy to use and did I mention that it provides INCREDIBLE sound.
Cons I can't really think of any.
Summary The SONOS S5 is just awesome. I recently bought their ZP90 to add on to my current 8 zone Niles home entertainment system. I was skeptical at first so I initially bought one S5. It is a winner. I am going to buy 2 more and my entire home will have sound throughout. It only took me 10 minutes to have the S5 up and running.
The S5 fills the entire room with great sound. I am a believer in SONOS!!!!!
