SONOS recently launched two new products..a new version of its top of the line SONOS PLAY:5 speaker and a software update that will make all your SONOS speakers sound better. SONOS defined the Smart Home sound system with its first speaker and now the company has upgraded the term “Smart Speaker” with TruPlay software that provides even better sound from your SONOS speaker no matter where it is placed in your room.

Now those of you who have calibrated large speaker systems know it’s quite a process that only sets up the speakers to provide optimum audio in one spot in the room. TruPlay optimizes sound for the entire room using your iPhone or iPad to accomplish this magic trick.

New SONOS PLAY:5 – the flagship smart speaker with more of everything you love about Sonos
The new SONOS PLAY:5 delivers a listening experience that is closer than ever to how every track was mastered in the studio. Built with six synchronized, custom-designed drivers, the speaker’s three mid-woofers create smooth mids and deep, powerful lows, and three tweeters deliver crystal clear highs at any volume. The array produces a soundstage that is much wider than expected in a single speaker, creating room-filling sound with precise separation of vocals and instruments.
For the first time, SONOS PLAY:5 can be used in three orientations. This flexibility, combined with Trueplay tuning, enables best-in-class sound for any placement, in any room. In addition to horizontal orientation as a standalone speaker, two SONOS PLAY:5s paired together vertically deliver top-of-the-line stereo sound with a focused and intense sweet spot. Paired horizontally, they create a larger stereo image for an immersive, room-filling listening experience. The sound is so good you can even notice the quality on this video shot using only one microphone.

Just like its predecessor, the new SONOS PLAY:5 works seamlessly with all Sonos smart speakers and adds even greater modularity with the ability to act as rear speakers in home theater setups with SONOS PLAYBAR and SONOS SUB. Control every room in your home with one easy-to-use app that brings together your favorite music services such as Pandora, Spotify, TIDAL, Google Play Music, and Groove.
Available soon in a custom matte black and matte white finish, the all-new SONOS PLAY:5 will retail in Canada for $549.
