"Great addition to existing Sonos setup"5.0 starson by davidkirk
Pros: Portability - Just take it where you need music
Sound quality - fills the room with great sound
Build - feels solidly built, like all the previous Sonos products
Cons: Remembering what you 'named' the S5 when you move it somewhere else. I have 3, so when I take one into the garage when working in there, I have to remember if I have the 'Master Bedroom', 'Den' or 'Kitchen' S5, so that I can control the right one!!
Summary: I have 7 Sonos zones setup now, including 2 outside. What I love about them is that you can have them seamlessly playing the same music or radio station and they are absolutely in-sync. So whole-house music is easy to set up with Sonos. Adding the 3 S5s now means I can fill in some of the rooms that were going to be difficult to hard-wire for permanent speakers.
I am so happy with them, as I never really though of the portability before purchasing, but that has to be one of the best benefits. Wherever I might be (inside or out) working on a project, I know I can now have access to my whole iTunes library, my favorite radio stations from around the world, or Pandora and Rhapsody. Just plug it into an outlet, wait a minute or so for it to connect to the Sonos Network, and hey presto, you are ready to go.
They are as simple as all the other Zoneplayers to set up. Some may think they are expensive, but try getting an electrician to wire up your house for whole-house audio, with the ability to control everything through your iPhone (including the very simple process to get new software updates) and you will realize that $400 is very reasonable.
Save up and buy a few - you won't be dissapointed.
Thanks for your submission!
