Cool Sound Quality Comparison SONO L&R vs Bose or HQ 2.1 system

I'm a recent SONOS user having bought the S3 this week.
I'm impressed by the sound and have not yet tried the S5.
I am considering audio opitons for my house.
Does any one have any experience of the following combinations for comparison?

2x S3 (one left one right) vs Single S5

2x S5 (1L, 1R) vs Bose Lifestyle

2x S5 (1L, 1R) vs other high quality 2.1 system (one with a good sub woofer)?

I'd say the s3 pair will outshine the single s5.
The s5 pair will compare very well with the Bose.
No comment about the last question, because you haven't specified a budget for the high quality 2.1. Even without the .1, a GBP 500 amp driving a GBP 1000 speaker pair, for example, will outshine Sonos, if you also take care of speaker positioning and room acoustics. In which case, the Sonos features can be added to it via the zp90.
