 And line in to a Sonos device will be playable on any Sonos speaker on your system.  So the decision between Port and Five comes down to cost, and what other features of the product you can utilize.  Also note that the Sonos Roam can connect to your laptop via bluetooth, then share the stream with your other Sonos speakers. 

 

Worth noting as well that Sonos can play music files directly off your laptop without using aux input or bluetooth.   If this is your intent, that may be the best way to go.  I personally use the plex streaming services, which allows me to play my music on Sonos, on TVs, and away from home via a plex app.
