Works Great


  • "Great app, amazing product. Over the years I've tried numerous products to play music from my phone and/or computer without a cord. After lots of other products eventually failed to maintain a signal, I found Sonos, which has now been working for years. The app is easy to navigate and seamless, like the rest of the Sonos experience."

Sound Quality


  • "I have two Sonos Play 5s -- one upstairs and one downstairs -- and they absolutely fill my house with beautiful wireless music at a fraction of the cost of installing a built-in speaker system. I would highly recommend the Sonos line of speakers to anyone interested in quality wireless sound."
