Planning on getting 2 play1 speakers for surround speakers for use with a playbar and LG OLED TV . Would play 3 or play 5 speakers offer any advantages?

Years ago with non-sonus equipment, I recall discussion around which way the surround speakers should be pointed. Does that matter anymore?

You also need to consider the 'form' factor and the aesthetic of having smaller or larger speakers as surrounds. Play1's are much smaller and therefore more subtle on the eye and take up less space.
I doubt that room size matters. Anything more than 1 units for surround sound is overkill and overspending. The only open question here is when full mode is used for music play; whether the higher models do better in this mode.

Not sure but I'm perfectly happy with my Play 1's as surrounds. I suspect that the size of your room may be a factor in deterring the best option though.
