Dear Sonos community I have an issue let's hope I can get all help to solve it.

I have an Arc + Sub gen3 + Play 5 gen2 and I just received the new Five. All of this in my living room.

I would like to have surround 5.1 but the sonos app say that I should have compatible speakers.

Is Five and Play5 not compatible?

What should I do?

No, unfortunately not. The PLAY:5 gen 2 and the Five can neither be paired for stereo sound, nor bonded as a surround set of speakers. As indicated in the error you received, you need two of the same type/name speakers.
