Play5 and Echo


Can I set up an Echo to control my Play5? If yes., can I still use the Echo to play music if I choose to?

Yes and yes. You need to specify the Sonos speaker name when you want to play on that. ie."Alexa play some music i'd liek in the Kitchen" where kitchen is the Sonos speaker name. If you omit the room name it will just play on the Echo. That's how mine is set up.
