Impossible to connect playlists, not at all intuitive, would not recommend this to anyone. Have tried numerous times to connect to my apple and bandcamp accounts doesn't work keeps asking for me to reauthorize and only allows me to play music that other members of our household have added. Will be switching back to using an ipod connected by bluetooth to a speaker system.
I have owned a copy of the Sonos 5 during the summer of 2013 but did not return it, because the lack of being able to play what you hear on the cell phone / pad directly to the Sonos system.
When the unit had received more stars. Last SW 4.1.1 you can play your own mp3 files on their smartphone, but as yet no such order to hear the sound of the system when running a youtube clip on his Android. Strange that it does not ensure that you can play that way.
The sound was really good for its small size and filled the large room okay.
Portability, ie to move the wireless speaker unit to another room worked okay, but there are some problems in getting the unit after being dragged out cord (wall plug, the only thing needed), takes about 1 minute boot time.
Desirable was also able to run two Sonos 5 units to get better stereo effect, which should go as per the manual. Letting the units receive a respective channel, left and right. It will be a delay as I was not able to test.
I would agree with the other reviewers who describe the SONOS system as a huge and frustrating waste of time. We were pushed into buying this system by a salesperson (who did not have the BOSE system we actually wanted). The technology is constantly generating issues and makes using the system very awkward. There are few if any real advantages to the set up. Not worth the time or money. (I am also rather skeptical about all the very positive reviews at this and other sites, none of them mention the slightest problems or difficulties involved in using this system?).
