I know this question would have been asked before, however i tried to search through but nothing was specific to my question, so here i go,
Little bit of a background on my usage, i use it to listen to music in my bedroom. I would love to wind down a busy day with some calm and peaceful music in my bedroom which will help me de-stress and help me go to sleep. so no requirements for high Bass.
I have a Play 5 (Gen 2). I want to expand it. I read lot of people suggesting 2 X Play 5 (Gen 2) in Stereo pair. I am not sure if it would do justice to get 2 Play 5 (Gen2) in my bedroom. I was instead leaning towards getting 2 X Sonos One/SL for a Stereo pair to be used along with my Play 5 (Gen 2). Any prior experience with similar setups ? is it worth getting 2 X One/SL to join my Play 5 (Gen 2) or will i be better off with 2 X Play 5 (Gen 2) ? Any suggestions would be of great help and Thanks in advance.

Assuming I understand you correctly adding as second Play 5 in your bedroom (given your requirements) would be overkill.
I’d move the Play 5 to another area and purchase a single Sonos One or One SL for the bedroom. Adding a stereo pair in your bedroom would IMO duplicate the Play 5.
Bedrooms typically are not the place where CRITICAL listening is done. Proper positioning of a single Sonos One or One SL may be adequate. I’d start with one (preferably the Sonos One to add either Alexa or Google assistant) and if not satisfied then purchase a second to create a stereo pair. The second speaker could be a Sonos One SL as you probably would not need a voice assistant on both.
Let me know if I have misunderstood your goals/requirments.
