I have recently purchased a play bar expecting to pair two play 5 (1st gen) to it, only to find out they are too old. I could not find any information telling me when I bought the play bar that they would not pair with the older play 5.

Hi Progman56,

The first generation PLAY:5 does not have a 5 ghz antenna which is required for the higher bandwidth streaming used in the 5.1 setup.
Thank you for your help.
