FAQ

What is the difference between Five and Play:5 (Gen 2)?
Five features updated internal technology, including increased memory and a more powerful CPU, as well as a new monochromatic finish.
Can I stereo pair Five and Play:5?
Five will only stereo pair with another Five.
Can I use a pair of Five speakers as home theater surrounds?
Yes. Five will connect to Sonos home theater speakers or home theater systems connected to Sonos components.
Will Five connect to my turntable?
Yes, you can connect your turntable to Five using the line-in port and an auxiliary cable.
Can I connect Five to my TV?
No. The line-in isn't designed for use with a TV and will result in some latency or lip sync issues while the audio is converted from analog to digital.
Can I adjust the bass level?
Yes. You can adjust the following equalization (EQ) settings from the Sonos app: bass, treble, balance, and loudness.
Can I put Five outside on my patio or in my backyard?
Five is humidity resistant but not weather rated. It is not recommended that you leave Five outdoors when it is not in use.
How can I use voice control with Five?
Five can be controlled with either Alexa or the Google Assistant when connected to a voice-enabled device, such as Sonos One, Beam, Google Home, or an Amazon Echo Dot, over WiFi.
Can I hardwire Five to my network router?
Yes. Five has an ethernet port so you can connect it directly to your router if WiFi is unreliable.
Does Five work with the Sonos S1 Controller?
No. Five is only compatible with the new Sonos app. Find more information here.
How do the new processor and increased memory affect the product experience?
Currently there are no feature differences between Sonos One Gen 2 and the original version. The original Sonos One will continue to support all its current features, and more, in the future. Over time, however, the increased memory, Bluetooth Low Energy, and processing power may allow us to bring new product experiences to the Gen 2 version that the original will not be able to support. That said, we have no specific Gen 2-only features planned at this time.
Will Sonos One Gen 2 work in stereo pair and as surrounds with the original Sonos One?
Yes, the Gen 2 works seamlessly with the original Sonos One as a stereo pair or home cinema surrounds.
How does Sonos One Gen 2 use Bluetooth Low Energy?
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) was first introduced with Sonos Beam, and now we are bringing it to Sonos One Gen 2. Just like with Beam, BLE can be used to communicate temporarily with your phone or tablet to simplify the first-time setup process. BLE does not support audio streaming. Once setup is done, Sonos One Gen 2 streams and updates via your WiFi just like the original Sonos One.
How can I tell which version I have?
Sonos One Gen 2 is marked as “Gen 2” on the product label underneath the speaker. The original Sonos One only has “One” on the product label.

Reviews

Can't I just use my personal music streaming subscription?
You’ll still have to pay licensing fees to use music in your business. Additionally, if you want to get rid of the ads that interrupt the music, you’ll need to pay for a premium subscription on most services. It’s usually more cost effective to subscribe to a music streaming service for business use.
Why do I need a commercial music streaming service?
Composers, musicians, and artists deserve fair compensation, especially when their music offers extra value to your business. As a business owner, you’re legally responsible for paying license fees for music you play in your venue.
What is considered a public performance?
The Copyright Law of the United States defines a public performance of music as, “Music performed in a place open to the public or at any place where a substantial number of persons outside of a normal circle of a family and its social acquaintances is gathered.”
What are Performance Rights Organizations?
BMI, ASCAP, and SESAC are known as the Performance Rights Organizations (PROs) that represent songwriters and music publishers in the United States. If you play music licensed by one of these organizations and don’t have a license from them, you can potentially be held liable for copyright infringement, which can result in thousands of dollars of liability as well as costly legal fees.
