At CEDIA, we got to test out the new Sonos Play 5 and listen to the difference that the Trueplay audio calibration worked. Both were simply amazing! We couldnt believe the difference in the sound with a simple couple of presses on the iPhone. I am sure our current Sonos customers and future Sonos customers will highly enjoy this new free update from Sonos! Below is some information on both the new Play 5 and the Tureplay!
The new Play 5!
Six speakers powered by six dedicated digital amplifiers
The PLAY:5 uses six state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with six speakers to deliver great sound to any room. Each instrument, each voice, every detail shines through, pure and precise. With remarkably distinct clarity. And zero audible distortion. Even when you crank it up loud. Really loud.
State of the art, great sounding amplifiers that are light weight, powerful and very energy-efficient in standby and use.
Three tweeters create a crisp and accurate high-frequency response.
Three dedicated mid-woofers ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments, while also delivering a deep, rich bass.
Turn two PLAY:5s into separate left and right channel speakers to create wider, bigger, and deeper sound.
5.1 Home Theater
Add two PLAY:5 speakers to a PLAYBAR and SUB for a true surround sound experience.
All-digital sound architecture
All filter settings, active equalization, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry so there's absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.
Adjustable bass and treble controls
Optimize sound performance using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms
Trueplay measures the acoustics in any room – analyzing things like size, layout and furnishings. Then fine-tunes your PLAY:5 to make the music sound great, no matter where you place your speaker.
We are convinced that software can drive many more years of innovation in sound, making speakers sound better in any environment – smarter, more aware, and reactive to their environment. Which is why we’re so excited to be launching the first chapter of this innovation with Trueplay. It’s a major step in making sound itself smart.
Nobody’s home has perfect acoustics, and we don’t want to adapt our lives around our speakers. Your speakers should sound great, wherever you choose to put them. So, we decided to make them adapt to the environment around you. We call this Trueplay. Sonos speakers already sound fantastic, but Trueplay brings you even closer to how music should sound. With Trueplay tuning, your speaker can analyze the acoustic profile of any room and fine-tune itself. Most importantly, tuning with Trueplay is incredibly easy to do.
With a free software update, millions of listeners will enjoy the best possible sound from their existing Sonos speakers. And Trueplay is just the beginning: we’re already hard at work finding even more ways to make your Sonos experience better and better.
Music is an incredible ride and we are glad to be on it with passionate artists and creators, and with music lovers around the world.
