This is a good deal for the Play 5 + Bridge. I ordered online for in store pickup.

You need a sonos connect or sonos connect amp to play sonos content/app through an existing stereo/home theater. I use a connect and love it. The price is high, but it's an awesome system.
Ahh, ok. So if you have a receiver and speakers already set up in an area, and want to synch up the music through that along with other sources, you use the Connect. If you just have speakers you want to power that are not hooked up to a receiver, but can be powered through the Connect AMP, then get that. Got it.

Can these be used as basically a sounbar for a tv while allowing you to stream music wirelessly as well. Also, do they have blue tooth and how does the sound compare to say the bose blue tooth speaker that retails for 300? thank you.

this sounds like a question best answered by going to your nearest BB that have these and doing a demo. I plan to do the same later on today.

yeah i'm curious about getting one i just don't know enough about them. i don't really see a hook up for a tv other than a line in. i would want at least optical i would think to run it as a sound bar. if anyone knows a lot about these, i'd appreciate some insight.

I'll let someone else answer, but based on this news, it doesn't seem you can use it as a sound bar, or why else come out with one that is dedicated as a soundbar

A lot of people aren't getting the point of the sonos system. It's not a 'speaker'...it's a whole audio system. The squeezbox is a good little system, but it doesn't hold a candle to the quality of the sonos, either the play:3 or play:5. Also, sonos is controlled from a centralized system, not on the unit itself. For example, I can get some music going in my livingroom from my spotify account on my phone, go over to my computer and change the track, then my wife can use her ipod to play some music in the kitchen. Then, deciding she hates my music, moves her music to the livingroom as well.

Also, if we have a party, rather than blasting our music in JUST the livingroom, we can play it at a lower volume in ALL the rooms. They're a little overpriced, but, they don't disappoint.

I have a small squeezbox at my work, and while it's good, it's not as good as the sonos...not by a long shot.

Sonos components are connecting in their own wireless network. They do not use Bluetooth.

There are 2 types of Sonos components - the "PLAY3" and "PLAY5" which are standalone systems that have speakers included, and the "CONNECT" type components that you can plug into speakers (connect:amp) or an amplified stereo system of your choice.

If you connect a component to an audio source (television, stereo, ipod, line-in) it becomes a source for *any* Sonos component on your network. You can use a NAS drive or computer to use your audio file collection as a source. Plus there are tons of streaming sources online (pandora, iheartradio,amazon cloud player, aupeo!, last.fm, songza, etc).

You can sync some or all of your components so that multiple rooms are playing the same song - or you can have every component playing different songs - from different sources.

if you have a component connected to your stereo in the living room, you can listen to the audio from your stereo source in your bedroom - while your sonos in the living room plays streaming Pandora radio.

Control is via a software app on your computer(s) or on your iphone or android phone.

Expensive product, but excellent quality - setup was super straightforward.

edit: sound quality - I have the PLAY3 and PLAY5 - PLAY3 is good for small rooms (bedroom) PLAY5 is much richer sound, I have zero complaints, easily as good (to my ears) as Bose. If you're a true audiophile, buy the CONNECT and use whatever amplifier and speakers makes you happy Smilie

Was able to order a black play 5 for home delivery. Had to do store pick up for the free bridge. Free shipping and got cashback with mister rebate$. Looks like BB pulled the play 5 from their site. Cant find it anywhere now. Thanks OP!

Don't trust BB employees though. I asked if it can play the music straight from my iphone and they were very sure of themselves even though I was reading the opposite. Unless I am wrong?

This is still active on BB's website. The link posted earlier (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/null/...7700050019) still works.

from that link click "Check Shipping & Availability" and then proceed accordingly. I only see the black Play 5 listed which will ship for free but the bridge needs to be picked up. If I have to go to the store I might as well pick them both up which I'll be doing shortly.

I have had this sitting in my "saved for later" cart on Amazon for a very long time waiting for a price drop that never came (or at least I never saw) so I was glad to see this deal. Thanks OP!

squeezebox touch can be linked and they can be controlled through the SB app, similar to the Sonos. The Sonos probably is an improvement of what could be done through multiple SB touch setups, but now including wireless speakers vs using your own set of speakers.

I just bought a Big Jambox. I know the SONOS isn't bluetooth but is there a difference in sound quality?

This system adds up quick for doing an entire home, even at $300 a piece. And then there is the pairing of two sonos for stereo output (if Im quoting that correctly). Im think for a SFH or townhouse, you'd probably want at least 4 of these for good coverage, depending on how you entertain and where you want music at.

Here is the sale tag from my local BB. I had a salesperson check and at the time (~12:30EST) the black rang up at $399.
