If you are running S2 you can. 

Fives would be wasted as surround sound speakers though…….. just my opinion

@Huntsman180 why is that? Is there any use for a stereo pair of fives then?

Hi @4theswedes 

The Sonos Five is a robust speaker for music. Using all that technology for surround is a waste of money when there are less expensive Sonos speakers that will perform the surround function such as the Sonos One or preferably the Sonos One SL. However, it’s your money to spend as you like.

The perfect use for a stereo pair of fives is a stereo pair of fives…….. for music.
A pair of Play 1, One or One SL will perform the surround sound function perfectly at under half the price

Your money though
