Sonos Five review: is Sonos’ biggest, priciest wireless speaker its best?

In the beginning was the Sonos S5, that became the Sonos Play:5. Then came the Play:5 Gen 2 – and now here’s the Sonos Five. Can you tell one from the other in a lineup? Almost certainly not.

The Five is certainly the largest and probably the most powerful speaker in the entire Sonos range (it’s hard to say for sure, as Sonos remains extremely cautious about publishing details like ‘power’). It has been updated on the inside, slightly smoother on the outside. It’s part of what’s widely recognized as the best multi-room ecosystem out there. But is it good?
