Do much more than improve your TV's sound. With the fully networked Pioneer SBXB70 you can stream your stored or subscription music and even surf the FM airwaves.

Networking including DLNA, Spotify and AirPlay

Connect up to your home network and you can stream music across from your PC, laptop or NAS drive via a DLNA certified stream. You can also access music services such as the hugely popular Spotify. There's also AirPlay, making it easier than ever to stream from your Apple iOS devices, too.

Wi-Fi built-in and USB
With a choice of Ethernet or Wi-Fi connections, linking to your network couldn't be easier. Plug in your memory stick or iPod to the USB interface at the front and you've easy access to you stored music.

Bluetooth streaming to set your music free
As well as the comprehensive network streaming, the SBX-B70 is also equipped with Bluetooth. Linking up via Bluetooth is quick and easy and doesn't require any network other than the paired link between your smartphone or tablet and the sound base.

Built-in FM radio - unique in its class
Uniquely for a sound base, the Pioneer SBX-B70 features a built-in radio. This handy feature is perfect for quick and easy access to crystal-clear radio, without the need for an Internet connection.

Pioneer sound for your TV
With an array of quality speakers and powerful amplification built-in, the Pioneer SBXB70 offers a serious upgrade to your TV's sound. Quality stereo speakers are backed up by twin built-in subwoofers, giving the SBX-B70 a full-bodied response that's leagues ahead of a typical TV's sound quality. Making the speakers sound their best, a 130 watt amplifier punches hard, filling the room with spacious sound.

Easy TV connection
With optical, coaxial and analogue 3.5mm inputs, the Pioneer has the connection to your TV covered. Unused sockets can be utilised for connecting other sources such as a games console, DVD player or set-top box.

Quality build
The high-quality wooden casing with internal bracing offers two benefits. It helps the Pioneer sound base support TVs up to 40KG in weight - enough for the nearly all flatscreen TVs under 65". It also helps improve the sound by offering a low resonance, heavily damped support for the speakers.

For a complete hub of home entertainment, the Pioneer SBX-B70 is a unique one-box solution.

PIONEER SBXB70 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds great but network connection problems Great sound. Problems when connected to router. Works fine for Bluetooth and USB until I connect it to a router whether by WiFi or LAN cable. Then Music Server playback stops after a couple of minutes. So does Bluetooth and USB playback. They are then ok if disconnected from the router again. Same problem when I was lent a demonstration model by the shop so it suggests a design problem. The shop was very helpful and sympathetic but there was not a lot more they could do. Decided to keep it as unlikely to use the network and otherwise better connectivity options than some others. Awaiting feedback from Pioneer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from what can i say? this piece of equipment is great. it arrived days before i expected it to and was in great order. i have become a little deaf in one ear and have found this has enhanced my ability to hear all the words clearly and precisely. Great variable volume and bass reduction when necessary. Radio good but pity it's not dab though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does more than a sound bar. When looking to buy a new 55 inch TV I realised that I would also need a decent sound bar. I had not really considered a sound base, but am so glad that I did. The Pioneer sound base offers so many more features than a sound base and for a similar price. It has now replaced the Sonos Play 1 system in our lounge and has a lovely deep room filling quality sound. The soundbase was easy to set up and has a number if customisable features according to taste or program. I would certainly recommend it as an alternative to a sound bar

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good alternative to separates Nice bit of kit, but as others have pointed out, the instructions can be a little hard to work out. Had a problem with wireless connection, but managed it. Then got the Pioneer app (Android) to "control the product", but this would not recognise the product! Didn't want to acknowledge the IP address, but I'm sure I used the correct one. Perhaps I will use the DNLA instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent build quality Bought this for my father in law who is hard of hearing. He is using it connected to his Teac sound system. The increase in volume is of very good quality and he can now hear the wind section clearly on his classical collection. He was so impressed he went and bought another to connect to his TV Thanks again to all the staff in the Bristol shop for all their help and support. just brilliant.
