"If your music collection is largely CD-quality tracks and below, or you're a serial Spotify user, then Sonos is a great multi-room ecosystem."What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision Award Winner 2015

Sonos Hi-Fi sound for your TV
Flood any room with epic, full-cinema Hi-Fi sound. The PLAYBAR adjusts automatically to the differences between shoot 'em up action flicks, Shakespearean dramas, and live concerts to deliver the sound as it was intended. With nine built-in digital amplifiers, three tweeters and six mid-range units, the PLAYBAR is capable of a truly expansive sound. Should you require even more bass then simply add the Sonos SUB and treat yourself to a 3.1 cinematic experience of awesome power! For the ultimate in surround sound you can add two PLAY:1 or PLAY:3 speakers as rears, giving you a full Sonos, wireless 5.1 system of incomparable quality.

Whether curated or on-demand, free or subscription-based, Sonos has you covered with access to a growing list of over 30 music services.

Control your way
Control PLAYBAR volume and mute using your existing TV, satellite or universal remote. And for streaming music you can download the free Sonos Controller Apps for your smartphone, tablet or computer.

Easy to expand wirelessly
Expand your Sonos system throughout the entire house, and play your music wirelessly in other rooms. Just add another Sonos player wherever you need music, for the ultimate music system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'Worth the Money?' -- Without Doubt Without doubt a fantastic bit of kit. Easy, to say the least, to set up and it just gets better from then on. Beautiful clear sound, great with Apple Music, can't wait to get the boom box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SONOS nut !! Ok, so I'm going to be a little biased here, but it's not that you shouldn't use my review as a guide :) I have Sonos throughout my home. On opening the Palybar box, I couldn't believe how well it was packaged, I thought Apple products came well packaged, but they seriously need to up their game !! Well done Sonos. And that's where the quality started, the Playbar itself is a serious piece of kit in both weighty presence and design. Super simple to set-up (as all Sonos products are) and the sound quality is fantastic even without the Sub. Although I'm saving for that now !! If you are looking for great quality sound, something that will link to your music library quickly and easily and provide you with hours of stunning quality music, then go buy one, you'll love it. The guys in Richar Sounds in Glasgow were fantastic (thanks Martin), see you soon. Almost forgot, plus as a VIP you get a 6 year Warranty from RS, WOW !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound This is my 2nd Playbar, the other is in the lounge. Excellent sound and easy to set up. A bit expensive but I've got the 'Sonos bug'. The guys at Preston are great to deal with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gradually becoming friends! Any injection of new technology into a home is a bit of a voyage of discovery and acceptance. I'm the advocate and am keen to understand what I've got and how to exploit it. That's been going well - although a lot of it is slightly trial and error and just keeping with the faith. I've got to get the rest of the household on side with my big purchase, who are much more sceptical. Gradually getting there. Delighted to see that a non-techie guest who uses Sonos could join our set up very easily once on our home network. It did not get full marks as the base was a bit boomy and not that well defined but, by turning the bass down a bit, the perception was improved. It's also quite large, but with a larger TV is in proportion, particularly if you don't use wall mounting. Overall it looks to be really clever and be ahead of my comprehension and comforting that the app gets continual developments and tweaks - I'm more buying a relationship rather than a one off purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific soundbar Ok there are plenty of much cheaper soundbars but this looks great, sounds terrific, fits in with the rest of my Sonos set up & is the heart of a great new TV surround system in my lounge. Teamed up with a sub & a pair of Play 1s it sounds great. Very easy to set up and balance using the auto tune system provided & sounds great with audio music and speech too. Only downside is that while I can input Napster etc via the Sonos app there's no Bluetooth capability to play in e.g an iPhone or iPad. This is something Sonos should sort like virtually all rivals such as Yamaha

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bit of kit Having purchased a new quantum dot samsung TV, decided to take the plunge with a soundbar. RS recommended a Sonos system when I got the TV so having had a demo I took the plunge. Good move! Easy to set up, and sounds great. Since then have added sub and 2 play ones to get 5:1 surround sound. The difference this makes is unbelievable and an already great product is now simply awesome.
