The new improved Play:5 was an important move to keep Sonos up with the rising wave of competitio­n. It’s not the best wireless speaker on the market by a long chalk — Bluesound, Definitive Technology and Yamaha have better ones. But all those are more expensive; at its price, the new Play:5 is well up with the best of the competitio­n. Add the excellent app, the services available, the system reilabilit­y and the wide recognitio­n of the brand, and we reckon Sonos isn’t about to lose its grip on the wireless multiroom market any time soon.
