    I used to be an absolute Sonos fan. Sadly, when I decided to upgrade my system made of an Arc and a play:5 gen 2 by buying a Sonos Five.
    This way I could pair the 2 Fives as stereo and also use them as surround speaker for my arc.
    Guess what, they're not compatible!
    Although, they're almost identical and cost the same price, they wouldn't simply pair up!
    I am moving on to a brand that's not making a 3 year old product of $500 obsolete.

    Do you think I can place 4-6 of these in a large room that is 2000 square feet?

    Would I be able to use them with virtual DJ?

    That bass slaps!! I was thinking about getting this speaker. I already have a Sonos move and want to get started on creating a system, will the two speakers be able to work with each other?

    How does music sound quality compare to other smart speakers like the Bose 500 and others?

    Can you use 1 x sonos five mounted horizontally to act as both rear channels for surround when used with a sonos arc?

    Great review! If I stereo pair two Fives, can they be placed on the floor or I should put them on speaker stands? Any suggestions? Thanks !

    Like all Sonos products, Descent software, terrible hardware, ridiculous price, and bad audio quality. For that price, it is just silly how they cut out Bluetooth, voice assistant, etc. So you must have a smart device to even use it. Sonos like Bose, if you prefer name of a quality product.

    The Sonos over the KEFS … I was told by everyone I had to purchase a KEF sub to hear deeper bass. For the price point, the Sonos is a more complete experience. Glad I exchanged the KEFS for two Sonos fives

    The one MASSIVE problem with sonos is its stupid app! Sonos speakers are awesome but the app totally kills all the pleasure. You need the app to manage wifi connection and play songs, but is so unreliable, constantly needs updates, poor comparibility with 3rd party music apps like Youtube music and Spotify. Fingers crossed for the day sonos ditch their crappy app!

    I currently have a Sonos playbase with 2 Sonos one’s in stereo diagonally placed behind me, would you say the 5 is a fitting solution for an overhead speaker(in front or behind) to create more of a Dolby atmos sensation? I know only the sonos arc has true Dolby atmos, but I was wondering if that’s comparable with the setup I just mentioned. Help please!!!

    Pretty bloody impressive! The single seems a touch bass heavy, but the stereo pair are extraordinary.
