I am a bit confused upon researching and deciding what speaker I am looking for. I am torn between the play 5, the move or 2 sonos 1.
Does the play 5 have two channels or stereo?

Stereo effect is an illusion produced in the brain when the ears feed it different sounds from the left and right side of the head. This needs two speakers placed some distance apart - as much apart as the head is from each speaker.
While the play 5 is stereo, this is largely theoretical because it does not physically achieve, via one box, the above state of affairs. To get a good stereo illusion - or image, using the jargon - you need two speakers, each playing the left or right channel, placed as above.
Based on the above, the answer to your question then - 2 Sonos One, set up via Sonos software to work as a stereo pair.
