Very Good. Just at the edge of great. 4/5
The speakers sound great when everything is working. I had to return a Play:5 because the wifi failed. I really mucked about with DHCP settings on a DSL wireless router to get it to stop duplicating IPv4 addresses on a Playbar + Sub setup. The system still does not support IPv6. The app lists lots of music sites but can't find the file to play on many of them. Integrating other music apps is hit or miss; the app should allow a pass though option. These are minor nits and overall the system is very good.
Great Surround System 5/5
By Robert Drane
I love everything about the system.
Keeps getting better 5/5
We love SONOS... It's great to have music all over the house for any situation. My kids love it because we have Motown SONOS Sundays in the kitchen with our breakfast. My wife likes the news on in the morning in the master bath while getting ready for work and I love to crank it up in the home office. Looking forward having the option of Alexa working the speakers.... keeps getting better!
Works fine 5/5
Simple and solid - no problems
Great App! 5/5
By Kissed by the Travelfairy
Lots of enjoyment- just don't plug your friends' phones in when the cone or they'll randomly drive past your house, hook into your wifi and start playing random music, scaring the bejeezus out of you!
Ok but getting left behind 3/5
The app and nav capabilities are a bit cumbersome. The biggest flaw is NO 24-bit support, which audiophiles, likely a large segment of their customer base, will increasingly see as a show-stopper.
Perfection is possible 5/5
The best. Hands down.
Great application, love Sonos 5/5
Can't be happier with the platform and integration capabilities of this application. I started with a Sonos connect Amp and few weeks later I'm hooked with Sonos:1 for other areas in the house.
Easy answer :) 5/5
....music in multiple rooms. A pleasure to operate, and easy for a layperson as well. Fluidity improves with each update, or my improved abilities, can't tell which one. The que organization is the easiest I've come across from my experience with music apps A+
Love the speakers and the app makes the sound system amazing!!
great app 5/5
it's a great app
Best system out there 5/5
It is, only needs a live local radio option for sports and an outdoor version.
Almost Perfect 5/5
By Ol' Homer
We have 3 Sonos sets throughout our house and I am very impressed with how easy they are to use and how good they sound. Since my wife and I have different tastes in music we frequently change stations, artists or playlists. The app is reasonably simply to navigate through but occasionally I do I encounter an issue. I would rate the app a 4 1/2 and the sound quality and ease of use a 5.
Good Product 4/5
By Shannon 14
Would buy again.
Best house addition 5/5
My house thanks you for Sonos. My family wakes up to beautiful music everyday.
Sonos the best 4/5
I have never been happier then I have been with my purchase of Sonos play 5. I intend to buy 2 more. I also plan on buying getting a play bar for my television. The music is so clear and crisp the way the artists have intended their music to sound. Great base !!
Simple to use and beautiful sound 5/5
Simple to use and beautiful sound
The BEST 5/5
Best money ever spent. 😍😍 5/5
Love the Base Play. Sound 🔊 is unbelievable and the installation is so simple that even teenage son love it.
Never better 5/5
Since purchasing Sonos we play music all the time. You have refined our listening experience and love the simplicity of setting up the system.
Easy to use, awesome sound 5/5
Easy to setup and use - great app and system
Nicely done app! 5/5
Easy to use, pleasant to listen to, livens up my day.
Absolutely love my Sonos speakers and the app. My only warning is that once you buy one you will be hooked and you will buy more.
We finally made the jump to light speed (joining the 21st century according to my son) with the purchase of the Sonos Connect and 3 wifi speakers. Absolutely incredible!!! Couldn't be more satisfied, sound, quality and ease of use is superb. I'm an enthusiastic and delighted customer.
Speaker sound is great. Controller is terrible. 1/5
Generally, it fails in making its own app with its own poorly implemented functionality, rather than simply allowing a "play whatever was going to come out of your Ipad / IPhone speaker from the speaker instead."
1. Search function is terrible - it cannot find a search string until every letter is typed, cannot fill in "Iron Maide" to "Iron Maiden", as an example of the kind of poor search function. Running a search of Amazon music in Sonos returns garbage results, running the same search in the Amazon app works great.
2. Frequently will return versions of songs by terrible generic cover bands rather than the original.
3. Has a cap on the limit of 30 albums you can access through Sonos favorites through all your available streaming services. Amazon Music has... what, 10 million songs? Google Music has 30 million? A cap of 30 is pathetically low, and I imagine it's an effort to drive the user towards streaming station services instead of allowing easy access to chosen albums.
4. Any music you've purchased through Itunes that is from some earlier date (cutoff unclear) will be unusable due to DRM Apple applied. Not the fault of Sonos, but not anything they made clear before I purchased the speaker.
5. Although you can use Apple Music's streaming subscription service, you can't stream songs you've bought from Itunes that aren't downloaded to your device.
6. You can't mix songs from your personal library with songs from a streaming service on a Sonos playlist.
Love this system 5/5
Very reliable, nice sound, plenty of choices, worth the money
Convenient and quality app!! 5/5
Love it. I don't use any advanced features. I control the volume and settings anywhere in the house.
Awesome system!!! 5/5
I love the system. Easiness to use, sound quality!! No regrets spending the money.
Great system 5/5
By Pete VS
I have had the system for 3+ years and have never had an issue with the product or the app.
Doesn't work much, when it does, it sounds great.
Goes in and out and limited usages.
It's actually useless, especially after the new update. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Back to sucking again and poor connection issues
Works great, if you can figure it out 3/5
There are work-arounds for almost all of the complaints here, but they are very hard to find. Further, the app and the desktop versions are so unlike each other that it makes me wonder if I am really using the same system. On the plus side, my tech-challenged spouse is able to pull up the app, choose a station, and get the music playing, but only if I've set it up beforehand.
Unbelievable!!! LOVE IT!!! 5/5
Best thing ever!!! We love it!!!
Multiple family members are able to play what they want from each speaker or we can play the same music throughout the house and outside porch!!!
I fall asleep to it and sometime choose to wake up to it too!
Nice updates lately would like too have Watch support 3/5
By Reborn a Mac
Some nice updates lately like Apple Music support. Would like to see Apple Watch support so I can control from my wrist.
Family Affair 5/5
Fell in love with it while staying with family. They had one in almost everyone. Each child had one in their bedroom. They unplugged it and took it to college dorm too. Had to get my own and suggested it to other family members and friends
Can't stream youtube music or use web browser 1/5
By E30 guy
It will let you stream the music if connected through audio cord... But that defeats the purpose of wireless speakers
Starting the collection 5/5
Recently got a play3 and play1 for my girlfriend. We have enjoyed the speakers and ease of use. Soon to add more to the collection including the tv sound bar so we can hook up surround sound with our tv.
Digital Music! 5/5
I am beyond thrilled with the sound and quality.
I placed a Sonos system outside for my pool area and it sounds like an outdoor concert.
Love Sonos 5/5
Love the federated search and the fact it just works! Sonos rocks
Great and Always Works 5/5
I've been using this app for a couple of years, it's easy and it always works
Apple Music Search 3/5
Apple Music search is slow
By Rockin' in Wauconda
I really can't say enough about SONOS products. Simple to use, high quality, GREAT sound. I have a mix of all their products, play 5, play 2, play 1, sound bar, sub. It's just an incredible system. GET ONE!! You won't be disappointed!!
Awesome and Simple 5/5
awesome and simple to use what more do you need to say about the Sonos system...couldn't live without it
Great system! Live the flexibility and the sound:-)
A music lover's dream 5/5
Can't beat it!
The best! 5/5
By Sound Sleeper 640
We love our Sonos products. We have multiple Play 1s, a Play 3, Play 5, and Sound Bar. They integrate seamlessly, and we can easily listen to our catalog of music or stream as much as we want. It's so easy to use that we bought a Play 1 for my parents, and they love it.
Do it now! 5/5
By Cabernet nut
Why did I wait so long to get one of these? Fantastic sound, quality and ease of use.
Baby boomers rating 5/5

We started our stereo system in college with the biggest and best speakers we could afford. Now we have discovered the Sonos systems and with amazon prime service we have the perfect system

Works as expected. No problems so far.
The best! 5/5
Best music system I've ever owned. Completely reliable and sleek looking too... A++
