Hello, i have bought two sonos 5 gen 2 speakers and have the following questions:
1. can i set up both of them in one room in the horizontal position?
2. there will be approximately 100cm between the two speakers, i cannot extend that distance. Does it make sense in that case to set up a stereo pair or will the sound experience be approximately the same as with one horizontal sonos 5? In that case i would set it up in the bedroom, however i would prefer to have both of them in the living room as a stereo pair.
Thanks

Since you've already bought the Play:5s why on earth don't you set them up in various ways and see which you prefer? There's no 'right' way, since everyone's home -- and tastes -- will be different.

If you want my advice, try the two Play:5s as a pair, oriented vertically. Since you have only 1m of separation, orient them with the logo/controls -- and hence the tweeters -- on the outside unless this would put them hard up against a wall.

It will be approximately the same as the distance to the speaker pair extends out beyond 100 cms, and as this distance increases the difference between a single unit and a pair will keep diminishing.

Try it out and see if a pair sounds better than a single unit in your listening positions and then decide.
