How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget says:

It's our opinion that the S5 delivers on its promise of "room-filling, ear-impressing sound" for iPhone- or iPod touch-carrying music lovers while opening the Sonos experience to more people thanks to a significantly lower (though not low) cost of entry. That makes it an important product for anyone looking to make a first serious step into whole-home audio.
