    The Sonos system fills the home with great sounding music in any room! We have a Play:5 in our great room and a Play:1 in the office. Both sound wonderful & we are planning to get a Play:3 to complete our home speaker network. It works well and is so easy to set up and use, especially with our iPhones and iPads. We have an extensive music library and the system plays it all!

        I love how easy it was to setup the Play 5. My wife & I really enjoyed listening to it so much we ended up buying 2 more play 5s. So now we have them all over the house.

              Set up was a cinch. This speaker is stylish, sounds great and fills my rather large bedroom with sound. Nice small and sturdy speaker. You just plug in into a power outlet and then completely control it with your smartphone. I'm now a big fan of Sonos.

                  I use this for my workouts. The music helps to keep every workout fresh and there are a multitude of different workout music to help you keep going and stay motivated. Just the thing I needed. I so use for my listening pleasure out at my pool. Best music ever because it's what me and my guests have picked out. My sister in law wants one now too.

                    I had no idea how great this product was until after I started using it at home. I was looking for some outdoor speakers and I was shown Sonos. I customer overheard my conversation with the salesperson and made it a point to tell me that she loved it and was back to add more Sonos products. So needless to say I listened. Sure glad I did it's been a great addition to our backyard fun.

                      This large speaker works well in backyard gatherings or near the pool. Also great in large indoor areas such as great rooms. We love our Sonos system. Nothing brightens my spirits like music
