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
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.
