HOME ENTERTAINMENT TRENDS: Sonos

Sonos has launched new speaker-tuning software called Trueplay at the same time as unveiling its all-new flagship Sonos Play:5 speaker.

With Trueplay, millions of listeners can easily tune their existing Sonos speakers for whatever room the speaker is placed in. Using the Sonos app, the microphone on an iPhone or iPad, and a special tone emitted by the Sonos speaker, Trueplay analyses how sound reflects off walls, furnishings, glass and other surfaces in any given room.

Meanwhile, the Play:5 is a brand new speaker, not just a revamp of the existing Play:5. It has six custom-designed drivers each with their own amplifier. It is said to deliver the purest, deepest, most vibrant sound yet from Sonos.

Trueplay and the new Sonos Play:5 will be available later this year. The Play:5 is priced at £429.
