The Sonos Play 5 is a portable and WiFi compatible speaker that will surely make an impression on many users willing to enjoy the best audio experience. The company tried to update its speaker series and provide a clean design to the increasing portable speaker industry. With a significantly enhanced style and much improved top quality, the Play: 5 represents Sonos’ answer to its powerful competitors that dominate the market at the moment.
This is an extremely well designed device, since it does not have physical control buttons, which have been replaced by capacitive strips. With it, customers can quickly adjust the speaker’s volume and listen to their preferred songs anytime they want it. To skip one or more tracks, you have to simply move the strip to the left or right or the other way around, as tech sources have revealed.
The gadget’s rear speaker is easier to use as it contains just a 3.5mm port, an Ethernet slot, the energy plug and the synchronization key. Its predecessors had an earphone port and a second Ethernet slot. Thanks to its efficient Wi-Fi connection, the lack of this second Ethernet slot does not affect the audio experience.
The device also has a series of mid-woofers and tweeters, while for a better sound clarity, two of these systems point in an external direction. It also has a weight of 14 lbs, which is quite heavy for a little speaker. But, the device can be handled rather easily even by children and women, without worrying about these problems.
One exciting function of the Sonos Play:5 is the alignment indicator. If a user has several Play:5 in the same room, this option will allow the entire audio system to instantly tune-in all audio between them and it relies on the direction of these speakers, either from side to side or from top to bottom.
Trueplay, one of Sonos’ apps, can instantly adjust the audio system to the appropriate acoustics of the space. It then adapts the equalizer configurations to generate the best audio experience possible. The more innovative style is represented by the organization’s logo due to its symmetrical icon, so it really is not important if it is placed facing up or down.
The new speaker is sold in just two colors: white and black and will have a price of around $500. It will be sold on November 20, according to the company.
In conclusion, the Trueplay might not be the only reason to have a Play:5, but you really do not need others. It is an incredibly well crafted system, with delicate touch control buttons above for managing the volume, play, stop and going back and forth through different songs.
It has front-firing speakers that will start instantly when you place them in a vertical position. It blends completely with Sonos’ outstanding application, which offers users access to almost every music platform support available on the market, as well as a networked song collection, songs on an iPhone or on Sonos’ own online channels.
