I got a raincheck for 2 more units. Details.

OOS on BBY.

Everyone, Amazon already has the free bridge offer, let's get them to match the $299 price so we can use all the Amazon Gift Cards we got for the holidays!

Click Here to select the product
[amzn.to] and then hit Ctrl-F (CMD-F on Mac) and type "Tell us about..." and then fill out the form to tell them about the lower price. If enough people do it they may match!

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.
If you want to do an entire home you are better off buying the Sonos Amp and playing through a surround sound system with multi-room speakers setup. Though a much better option for an entire home, it wouldn't be any cheaper then buying 4 Play 5's. If done correctly it would likely be much more money.

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.
Technically yes, but you would have to use the 'AUDIO LINE-IN Auto-detecting 3.5mm audio line-in connection'. Its not exactly ideal but would work if you really wanted it to. I personally would prefer to just use the built TV speakers before this option.

i see. i thought its like squeezebox with built-in wifi. still considering it.. too expensive compared to SB radio.
Quote from dbpaddler View Post :
It's not meant to be a standalone wireless setup but part of a system geared towards whole house audio tied into your main system. And you can tie in hard drives of media, not just direct to the Play speakers.
I was about to jump on this deal as well until I saw this and previous posts... So this system requires 3 devices to actually work, i.e., Play 3/5, Connect and Bridge?!? SB only requires one device, such is the case with the Boom to function. So even with the bridge at $299+tax and the free bridge, it will still require another $350 for the Connect?!?

Thanks; I've been eyeing another one of these for a while. 25% off if a great deal. Just a FYI the guy at BB told me I need to get a SONOS CONNECT in order for this to work. Total BS all u need is the bridge and the speaker. if you choose to expand in the future all you need is the additional speakers, no need for another bridge.

You don't even need the bridge. You can plug the Speaker directly into a network cable and be good to go. You do loose the wireless capabilities without the bridge though.

all you NEED is the speaker, the bridge just address wireless (for all purposes consider it to be required though). The connect is if you want to integrate it into an existing home theater system. So for you purpose spend $299 and until you want another speaker for another room, you do not need anything else.

No suds2.

For $299.99 you get everything you need to get a wireless setup going. Only two pieces - Sonos 5 + Bridge.

The connect is an alternative to the Sonos 5 that allows you to bring your own speakers/amp.

Just picked up 2 black Play 5s and a wireless bridge, thanks OP.
Like another poster said, there has been some decent deals on
these recently, but I'm worried they won't last long.

I spent 3 days last week researching whole home audio.
If you just wanted one speaker in the house that can play Internet
Radio, your personal music collection or whatever is currently on
your phone, then an Airplay/SB/Bluetooth speaker will work for you.
But looking at some of these Airplay/BT speakers, they can be pricey
if you want decent audio.

At the end of the day, I compared Sonos to AirPlay. Once I decided
that I wanted 2 speakers and an audio source at the HT, the price
comparison between the Sonos and an Airplay solution became
comparable. But with the Sonos, it is way more flexible and supposed
to be more user friendly, so I think it's a no brainer.

Just my 2 cents and this is a solution that works for me.

I guess no one likes the white speaker to go with their entertainment system colors.

I just bought a Big Jambox. I know the SONOS isn't bluetooth but is there a difference in sound quality?
i've never used a Jambox, but from what i've read in comparison reviews, Sonos is better.

Quote from mrcharlieboi View Post :
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 used to not be the case. but Sonos just updated their software so that direct streaming from the music device is possible. great added feature. so BB was right this time. Wink

you are selling your sonos, to keep an existing SB set up or something else? Why are you selling?

exactly, the connect and connect amp are for use with home receivers or speakers alone. All you need is the sonos speaker and bridge to get you under way.

Anyone try using this with their TV's headphone out? Curious if the sound quality is decent.
