Sonos PLAY:5 with Trueplay Tuning
Sonos’ newly redesigned PLAY:5 wireless speaker could be one of their coolest yet. The speaker comes with six different drivers and six different amplifiers. The PLAY:5 also connects to Sonos’ Trueplay tuning app, which uses your iPhone’s speakers and microphones to collect data on the room you wish to use the speaker in. It then dictates that data to the speaker which adapts its output accordingly. You can now have great, custom-tailored sound, using one speaker, in any room you choose.
