      Comments about Sonos PLAY:5BLACK Wireless Streaming Audio:

      Although we had some trouble setting it up, Sonos did a great job helping me. It had to do with my firewall and not the system. My only negative is that it will not work when your internet is down. We have never lost the internet until now! We have since lost it twice which is just the irony of life!

                I have the SONOS Play 5 system in my media room and can't wait to expand the system into other rooms in my home. The set-up was easy and quick with no hassle! I enjoy the fact I can stream music from my home computer and can control the output via my phone or computer. A great system with great sounds as well! I only wish the cost was cheaper so I could have more sooner!

                    Sound is adequate for my needs and may be great but I dont have anythignt to compare other than a boom boz. I like because I can have in kitchen or move to other areas for parties like outdoors on the patio and pool area.
