Sonos Five review: unbeatably powerful, musical, room-filling audio

Sonos Five: Two-minute review

The saying goes that if you don’t like something, change it. But because the general consensus was that we did like it, the Sonos Five will look very familiar to anyone who knows their way around Sonos’ 2015 Play:5 Gen. 2 (or even the 2009 inaugural Sonos Play:5, originally called the S5). Considering the brilliance of Sonos’ innovative, long-standing and highly popular multi-room speaker lineup, it’s no bad thing. 

The Five is the biggest and most powerful wireless home speaker in Sonos’ range, and it sounds every inch as detailed and musically pleasing as we’ve come to expect from Sonos. This flagship iteration (released in June 2020) adds increased memory, snappier processing and a new, er, wireless radio feature. Not a huge upgrade then?
