Sonos Play:5

Verdict: For $500, the Play:5 isn't cheap, but it doesn't sound, look, or behave like a cheap system. Sonically, the Play:5 is a winner, and from a multi-room home audio standpoint, Sonos still leads the pack. That makes it our Editors' Choice.
Pros: Powerful audio performance with seriously deep bass and accurate highs. Easy setup. Expandable to multiple rooms. Can be used as part of a stereo pair
Cons: Pricey. No Bluetooth

Sonos Play: 5

Verdict: In the last few years Sonos has been steadily adding wireless speakers to its multiroom audio lineup , but its flagship tabletop speaker, the Play:5 hasn't changed in six years. Until now, that is. This is the new Play:5 (2015), and it's a bigger, sleeker, and significantly better-sounding speaker.
Pros: The second-generation Sonos Play:5 is a sleek, well-designed Wi-Fi speaker that delivers rich sound for its size and strong bass. It offers the full Sonos wireless experience, controllable from iPhone, iPad and Android apps, with compatibility with nearly every key music service, including Pandora,...
Cons: Rather expensive, especially if you want to buy a second one for stereo sound

Excellent Service And A Product Beyond Belief

Verdict: I bought this for my son's birthday and I must say I am blown away by the quality of sound. I watched my son set this up and couldn't believe how simple it was. He played my favorite song as a test and I discovered nuances I had never noticed before.
