Any Sonos fans out there? Media Markt has the new Play:5 for sale and I picked up two today (wanted a stereo pair). My god, the sound is amazing and the setup is "press the on button" and you are good to go.
What surprised me the most is not the new speakers, but what I did with the old Play:5 pair. I placed them in the room I use as an office, and plugged the computer to the aux in on one of them, and they still work as a stereo pair.
The room is smallish with a lot of wood and the old speakers sound amazing in this setting. Full blast Alt J, Mozart, Erykah Badu, ZZ Top, the Beatles, it all sounds crazy good.
Word of warning though: You buy one and you get hooked. I bought one Play:5 a few years back, and now have the soundbar, sub and two Play:1īs in the TV room (to get 5.1 sound), two new Play:5īs in the living room, the old Play:5īs in the office hooked up to the computer and a Play:1 in the bedroom (also functions as an alarm clock).
According to my calculations I have spent ca CHF 4000.00 in audio equipment in the last 4 years - and the guest room, kitchen and balcony are still to go.
