Hello, I own a play five and am unsure whether to add the Sub or buy another play 5. Which combination would make the best sound?

It really depends on you, and what music you like to listen to.

My preference would be a second PLAY:5, for stereo imaging. I think it edges the SUB, since the PLAY:5s already have pretty good bass, and stereo imaging really changes the sound for me.

I've got a pair of PLAY:5s in my living room with no SUB, and they sound fine. I've got a SUB, mind you, but it's connected with the 5.1 system for watching movies.

I'd go for the stereo imaging too, a single Play 5 isn't bad but a properly placed pair sounds so much better.
