Pros Really good sales pitch to make you think you can play your music. You cannot.
Cons Does not play your streaming music. Wireless does not mean cordless.
Summary Used to play sonos radio stations and music on amazon cloud ONLY. Do not use if you want to play your music. Android control means that you can control it with your phone but not play the music that is on your phone.
Pros Great sound particularly when coupled with the Sonos subwoofer the wireless set up using the Sonos app was as easy as pie and the wireless performance is excellent. I have played a variety of music selections and find the performance to be great.
Cons Nirvana ain't cheap. You are looking at well over a grand for the Play 5 and the subwoofer.
Summary If you are committed to the ease and advantages of a truly wireless system, this is the one for you. The price is expensive, but worth every penny. I liked it so much, I bought a second system for my vacation home.
Pros Unlike the review, this system has more than one speaker. It has five - Two midrange, two tweeters and a woofer - so you do get stereo. They all happen to be contained in one compact, neat unit, giving it a very balanced, high performance, powerful sound.
Cons As in the review, to have the portability around the house with only one sonos s5, you will need to purchase the sonos bridge at extra cost. Otherwise, at least one unit will need to be plugged into your home router. They are pricey, to bring music to "ev
Summary I can't wait to add more devices around the house. I've had no problem with streaming music from radio stations, and the sound quality on my own music is flawless. There is enough tech to keep me, as an avid geek, entertained. The system is so easy to use, I let friends download the app, and choose music for themselves whilst they are here. Easy instalation means no faffing about with passwords, or networks, it really is just plug and play.
Very rarely do you get such a complete package.
The only problem I have now is the amount of choice in music.
So, go on, treat yourself, you'll get hooked!
Pros GREAT sound! Pretty small footprint. Now it can be used as a "stand alone" while attached to an iPod/iPad/iPhone. Deep and distinct bass and very clear highs.
Cons It ain't exactly cheap, but then again, you get what you pay for!
Summary I've been jones'in for a sonos system for years now. I'm sooooo glad I finally pulled the trigger! The customer service is actually BETTER than the first-class service I usually get from APPLE! They really do LISTEN to suggestions made by their customers. The design is just spot-on perfect in every single aspect. Now I'm going to buy more S5's to fill the house! It will eventually become the music my kids will listen to - and I can wirelessly control their volume if I have to! (heh heh) Not many products I buy that have ZERO buyer's remorse, but this is the first: ZERO regrets! ! ! !
Pros Stupidly easy to set up - I was up and running in under 10 minutes. I installed one ZoneBridge and 2 S5s. Beautiful design-fits in anywhere. There's no delay or echo if you're streaming the same music in different rooms thanks to SonosNet.
Cons Absolutely none!
Summary If you want to listen to more than what you can off your iPod or iTunes alone, and want great sound - not those tinny or inferior laptop or docking station speaker - this is the system. Plus, if you want expandability and flexibility to control what you're listening to in each room this is like having a wand in your hand (a la smartphone app). Their proprietary SonosNet technology is what I think is the killer app in this system. No delays or echos from room to room - it establishes it's own secure wireless network so the speakers/components talk to each other, so you don't get interference from other wireless devices. Genius! I love it. Couldn't have ever imagined buying an inferior system.
Thanks for your submission!
