Grouping of Speakers: I have two Play 5's next to my TV for music. I have recently purchased a Beam and would like to group it with these two Play 5's. Will this be possible?

Yes, you can group them together. In Sonos terms, grouping does not mean that the 5s will play left and right stereo and the beam is a center channel. It means that they will be setup as two distinct rooms in the Sonos app that you can choose to play as a group. When you have the 'virtual rooms' grouped together from a music source, the 5s and the beam will play in sync. However, if you are playing audio from the tv, the 5s will be slightly behind the beam, creating an echo effect.
FYI, you can also 'bond' the 5s and beam together. That means that it will all be one room together and the 5s will be surround sound speakers. That doesn't sound like what you're interested in.
