Sonos has begun pre-orders for the its flagship SONOS PLAY:5 on its website. The speaker goes on sale on 20 November 20 in all of its U.S. retail partner and dealer locations. All other global retail locations begin selling the PLAY:5 on 25 November.   The new SONOS PLAY:5 is built with six synchronised, custom-designed drivers with three mid-woofers for smooth mids and deep lows. Three tweeters are said to 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. Sonos Play 5SONOS PLAY:5 has three orientations. In addition to horizontal orientation as a standalone speaker, two SONOS PLAY:5s paired together vertically deliver top-of-the-line stereo sound. Paired horizontally, they create a larger stereo image for an immersive, room-filling listening experience. Sonos has designed the new SONOS PLAY:5 to focus on the simple essence of a speaker, the company said. Functionally, every detail matters, down to the placement of the nearly 60,000 individually drilled holes in the grille and the carefully selected material for each and every part. The new touch controls offer an intuitive, easy way to play, pause, adjust volume and change the track. Smart sensors make these touch controls responsive to all orientations, so the volume-up is always facing up. Just like its predecessor, the new SONOS PLAY:5 works seamlessly with all Sonos smart speakers and has the ability to act as rear speakers in home theater setups with SONOS PLAYBAR and SONOS SUB. Available in a custom matte black and matte white finish, the all-new SONOS PLAY:5 will retail for $499 USD, $549 CAD, $749 AUS, €579 Euro and £429 Pounds.
