Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first ever Sonos piece My Play 5 was the first Sonos item I invested in. Today I have two Play 5s and find then the mainstay of my system. I even take them up on to my roof terrace when there's no fear of rain for extra ooomph when entertaining. They're powerful but not bulky. They plug in to my mains power and work without any fiddling around. When entertaining I control them from an iPhone or iPad and wow my guests with their great sound quality and the apps simple to use operation.
