How many generations of the Sonos 5 are there?  Is there a big difference between Play 5 and Five?

There are 3 generations although the latest does not have the Gen 3 tag as such: 

Sonos Play 5 Gen 1

Sonos Play 5 Gen 2

Sonos Five

Only difference between the Play 5 Gen 2 and the Five is the newer Five features updated internal technology, including increased memory and a more powerful CPU, as well as a new monochromatic finish

Gen 1 can only be used on S1 systems.  Gen 2 can be used on either.  Five can be used on S2 only.


Minor, but Five also has slightly different button style.  I forget what the actual term for it is, but  it’s what all the current  Sonos speakers use, except for the Roam.
