Sonos Five review: High-fives all round

The Sonos Five can be positioned horizontally or vertically and the sound output will be adjusted automatically. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The design is lovely, with an all-white option that wasn't available in the older Play:5. The Sonos tag sits centrally on the plastic grille. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The top of the Sonos Five is curved, while the rear is tapered inwards. There are also 60,000 holes making up the grille. It looks super. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There are capacitive touch controls like many other Sonos speakers. There is no microphone button, though, as there is no direct Alexa or Google Assistant. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Rubber feet are present on three edges of the Sonos Five, reducing vibration no matter what orientation it's positioned in. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There's a plethora of great features, just like other Sonos speakers, but it also offers a 3.5mm line in - so you can also link-up an amped turntable. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Sonos Five sounds incredible. It's not cheap - but it is an amazing speaker that offers a wide dynamic range and a great design. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
