Arc vs Play Five

Hi!

 

So I currently have a Sonos Surround set up for my tv in the living room, consisting of two One SLs, Arc, and a Sub, which are great. 
 

But I was thinking that maybe it would be beneficial to purchase a single Play Five (pared with my Sub) to use strictly for music in that same room.
 

Mind you I live in a one bedroom apartment In Charlotte, NC. It’s not a closet by any means. It’s an average size for an apartment in NC at the price I pay, which is a little over 1000.
 

Is that practical? Does it make sense to have a Play 5 to use strictly for music playback while the surround system is dedicated to tv and movies?

 

I would also like to hook a Play Five up to a CD Player in the near future via Line In.

I have Arc, sub, and rear ones and use two paired play 5’s on either side of the TV for music.

Hi @jhmanigo.

Welcome to the Sonos community and thanks for reaching out to us.

I would like to inform you that you cannot add a Sub to a single Sonos Play 5 or a Sonos Five. You may only add a Sonos Sub to a Stereo paired Sonos speaker which means 2 Sonos Speakers of the same model stereo paired.

This is not true. I have a single Play:5 paired with a sub right now in my living room.  I think the OP looking for more of a recommendation sound-wise.
