The play: 5 by Sonos can be incorporated with other Sonos speakers in a Multiroom system. He can fill a room but also as a single box, as shown in the test.
The play: 5 had a grand entrance. With the new one-box-streaming-system debuted at the same time the great implemented new TruePlay measurement. It uses the iPhone or iPad as a wireless microphone via Wi-FI and takes you with the animation built into the app through the multiple-point measurement. With short sine wave sweeps the play turns: 5 automatically on its placement and the space a. The actual Equalization takes place in the DSP of the streaming speaker. A way to turn off allows the A/B comparison with TruePlay resulted in a balanced representation.
There’s still a selectable adaptive loudness function which helps the small box even at small volumes to a very lush bass. But the whopping sound lies also in the base vote of the hardware, which relies on closed and three mid-woofer, supported by three tweeters. The two outer dome radiate to the side, to improve the spatial impression in the stand-alone operation. But nothing beats real stereo. With the app, two can play be easily: 5 pair, making the space-filling playback even more authentic. Only the mids were somewhat underexposed.
The system behind it is just right
The play: 5 is the best speaker by Sonos. In addition to the new true play single measurements compatible with all Sonos products, he inherited all strengths and weaknesses of the Sonos system. In other words, he can draw in difficult reception conditions on the proprietary wireless standard SonosNet, where each component acts as a Repeater.
The play: 5 can be integrated as well as a Wi-FI and dominated AirPlay. He however neither supports your Bluetooth like the older play: 1 and play: 3. HiRes is also not. The software is very mature, plays perfectly with up to 16 NAS and supports many online services.
