SONOS Play:5 Now £269 instore at Currys

LocalFound 30th Sep 2015
New SONOS Play:5 coming out by the end of the year so stores clearing out the current model. Popped into Currys in Wednesbury tonight and saw they had them for £299 (RRP £349). Could just be local to this store but worth checking in other stores. I know it is now an older model but still great sound and the new version will be £429 RRP so good saving.

EDIT: just popped into Currys in Kidderminster and now further reduced to £269.99

What's the difference between the old and new models? Anyone know anything?
Quite big differences in both design and sound. Tech Radar reviewed it the other day. The old model is still ace (I have 3) though.
What Hi-fi have a review of the new one...massive changes over existing. The existing is good, but the new has several major improvements

If national get Richer Sounds to price beat, think they would do it for £289.
Interested to see a review of what the changes are. Only own 1 Play 5 for the bedroom but love it.

Have another look guys and gals, they're now only £249 on the website. Going to pop in this weekend and see if it's in store too.

I can only see the Play 3 at £249 on the Currys website and they only appear to be listing the new Play 5 at £429.

Yes, looks like NMulholland is mixing them up
Is this a new Sony Playstation 5. I've only just got the PS4 for £300 so how can the PS5 be the same price??? I don't like Sony now!!!

That journal has absolutely zero credibility.
^ agreed What Hi-Fi 5 star can mean absolutely anything in the world....
Prefer TechRadar?
What Hi-Fi reviews are fine by me, they've been doing it for about 40 years unlike the gadget websites!

Giving sponsors favourable reviews?
Maybe others will follow?..JL would be nice.
Tempted to wait for the newer model and see if they allow bridging without having to actually buy the bridge

You say that like
A ) It's been the same guy doing it all that time.
B ) Doing something a lot makes you good at it. Ever been driven somewhere in a taxi?
hmm, I think the original looks alot more classy. New one is not so grown up looking.
I had a listen to the new Play 5 today, it is a totally different sound,. There is a lot more bottom end and the sound is much warmer. Tweeters are positioned differently to give a better sound stage too, a really great product and definitely a step up.
I wondered if the Thursby, Fribury of Saturbury stores had these in stock?

The new ones have added 5gz so can be used as surround with the plat bar. I have three of each model and all great. New 5 is 429 gbp.
I have been testing true play for a while. Fear not it makes a massive difference to my play 5s.

Trueplay is superb on my Play:1 and Play:3. Toggling it on and off shows what a difference it makes. Thought it was great sound before but even better now. Will probably opt for the new 5 even though £130 more. More future proof I guess.
Richer Sounds in Birmingham have a couple of open box but mint Play 5s for 290
I guess you won't be able to pair a new Play 5 with an old one....and even if you did it might sound odd...i guess..
How much are they on Thursday?

No Sonos have confirmed you can't pair old and new
Great opportunity to get a stereo pair if you have a single 5. Can't imagine a single new 5 will top that considering my paired 3s are notably better than my single 5

This is now £269.99 at Currys Kidderminster so probably national. Even more of a bargain
Has anybody seen any black units in this offer? Lots of white units around but very few black

One in Kidderminster was black
These have now been reduced even further, to an incredible £179.97. Probably a wild goose chase to find one but confirmed by staff member this new lower price is national. I managed to pick the last display model up from Currys in Greenock. Fantastic bargain. Hopefully someone else can snare one at this price
yeah, I got 2 x play 5s from a Sony shop in Brighton for £199 each. This was awhile ago though.
