Great sound you can personalize

  • Nine built-in speakers are set up in a phased speaker array, which adds "directionality" to your audio; if two cars collide on the right side of the screen the sound will come through on the right side speakers, while the left side speakers play the inverse of that sound
  • PLAYBAR's Trueplay feature adjusts sound settings for the unique properties of your room, so you can enjoy the best possible sound for music, TV shows, movies, and games
  • This versatile speaker can be mounted on the wall or placed on a console or table under your TV

Easy to set up, easy to use

  • Use Night Sound when you don't want to wake the family at night; it enhances quiet sounds at lower volumes and reduces the intensity of louder audio
  • Setup is simple with only two cords (a power cord and an optical cord to connect to the TV), as well as the Sonos app that walks you through each step of the setup process
  • PLAYBAR is able to learn the IR commands of your current remotes so you won't have to add clutter to your coffee table

Enjoy audio how you want, where you want

  • Stream music wirelessly by connecting PLAYBAR to your home's Wi-Fi network
  • Expand to full, wall-shaking 5.1 surround sound by adding some more Sonos speakers like PLAY:1, PLAY:3, PLAY:5, or SUB
  • Place Sonos speakers throughout your home and you can enjoy the audio playing on your TV in any room, in perfect sync, or listen to your favourite tunes in any room
  • Enjoy great-sounding audio from a variety of sources, including gaming consoles, cable and satellite boxes, and Blu-ray players

    I have a 7.2 system setup in a theatre in my basement, I paid the same amount just for my amp on that system as I paid for the entire 5.1 Sonos system, and the Sonos system sounds better than my basement system. I bought this Sonos system for my living room upstairs. I now use that screen for everyday viewing, movies, and sports because I added the Sonos system. Even though I have a 65" screen upstairs and 108" screen in the theatre, that I intended for movies and sports. The Sonos system sounds better and is easier to use than my much more expensive setup downstairs. I read on reviews that the sub is inferior. I do not know where this came from. I've moved my sub 3 different times trying to find the best place for it, because it keeps rattling my pictures. I was watching the movie Us last night and actually had to turn the sub down in the middle of the movie. Which I did by just opening the app and turning it down by the way, I didn't even need to pause the movie. I use Spotify and Plex for my music library right from the Sonos app. I have to use my Xbox in the basement for both. I had the entire system setup in 10 minutes. I was a little worried about not having Dolby Atmos or DTS x on the Sonos bar but the truth is I do not hear a difference. I'm starting to think both formats may be gimmicky. I now have Sonos 1's in my kitchen, gym and master bedroom and am going to continue to get more throughout the house. It is very cool to have the same music playing throughout the house. Also something I never realized I wanted was having the game playing throughout the house when you have company over. I am going to put them in my washrooms because of this. Lol. I love my Sonos system and will eventually change my theatre system to it also. I am going to wait for the next generation before I do that though.

    This item was purchased in-store during Boxing Week sale, to replace an old Bose 3.2.1 system. Because we now live in a condo and want to be good neighbours, we were looking for a speaker that would deliver the best sound possible without a sub-woofer. We listened to the premium sound bar at a Bose retail store and were a bit underwhelmed by the bass output, compared to Playbar. 5 weeks after purchase, we are still extremely happy with our choice. It has a rich, room-filling sound with crystal-clear dialogue and enough bass to satisfy our tastes. Sonos is easy to set up and add speakers for a more immersive sound. No complaints with the app. Have not tried Apple Music yet, but Stingray Optik TV sounds great.


  • Why it's good but not great for the price and why I'd recommand you'd try something else

    After quite a busy 2018, I decided to offer myself a much needed upgrade for my T.V sound system and skimming on the web for an option and after looking at the possibilities, I decided to opt for the SONOS playbar, which I'll explain why I so regret my choice now in the sense that you can have what I'd quality as way better options for the price even though there's some qualities to that product. All in all, the bar has some qualities; - the design is in my opinion quite stunning and when you do touch and manipulate it, you can feel that it's made with quality material. - The sound is overall very good for the price you pay, which is another solid quality when you're looking for a playbar. - The playbar is quite easy to install via the APP; it's as friendly as it can be. -NOW... there are some solid bummers that do come with it. The first one is that the only way to play to use the playbar is via the APP. As stated above, is the app is great to sync speakers together and to install, it's absolutely terrible for all the rest. At least, if you're an android user. I did skim the previous reviews and from what I read, it seems like the App used to be quite something many moons back but did detoriate seriously in the meantime. If you want to, say, use the playbar to play music, you'll realize that the Sonos app is at best a very bad music player compared to the real good apps to play music that we do have on the market at the moment. How come is that? - Also, there's really no way around the app; there's just no bluetooth on the device, which is a bit flabbergasting when you consider that there are some solid competitions around the block who offer that. That means that 1) for any other use, you gotta use the SONOS app which is terrible at playing things and that 2) you're stuck with that "digital mini jail"; without the app, that beautiful and pricy playbar is completely useless. Despite the solid design and the very good sound, I consider that the whole experience is then a bit disappointing and to be honest, there's then many better options over there, like the SONY or the BOSE playbars who offer as well stunning designs and a sound that's comparable (perhaps slightly better but not significantly) BUT where you're not stuck at using a poor playing app if you don't like it (Bose for example makes a better playing app albeit not as friendly to install and if you don't like it, there's the bluetooth option). Do I recommand? Well, if you're sold to SONOS and that your whole house is SONOS based, perhaps it's worth it, otherwise, you have way better options for the same price here.
