SONOS PLAYBAR is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 241.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall pretty good I tested this at home alongside Naim Muso wanting something that could both be a soundbar for TV and play music. The Naim was noticeably better for music with much more bass (unsurprising given it is not really a soundbar) and greater clarity all round BUT was terrible when using the optical lead off the TV, as background noise completely over-whelmed dialogue. The Sonos was good as a soundbar and the music is still reasonable. In the additional context of a cheaper price tag I opted for the Sonos and have been using it with TV for the past month - very happy. The main drawback is the lack of bass - particularly on music (which I know can easily be fixed with a Sub - but for me that would result in too much expense). Design wise it is OK - probably being overly harsh and still comparing to the Muso, which looked much more impressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, versatile and easy to set up Fantastic sound bar and merges seamlessly with my existing Sonos set up. As with other Sonos kit it's expensive but if you can afford it, its a joy to use. Great service in Richer Sounds. I went to Currys and John Lewis in the West End and wanted to take it home. Both didn't have it in stock even though they have big displays of Sonos kit and empty boxes in store. I called Richer Sounds and they had it in stock. Steve was very helpful; and I picked it up 20 minutes later and went home with my Play Bar. 5 star service as I've come to expect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to the Sonos range Great soundbar, withthe quality you'd expect from Sonos. Also works well as a standard sonos speaker through the great sonos app.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy intro to SONOS Good soundbar, easy set up, reasonable sound quality, and a great introduction to the SONOS range, including the room tuning.
Date published: 2017-03-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, easy setup. A classy piece of kit to unbox, the Sonos Playbar is easy to setup and certainly looks the part. The sound is clear, punchy and manages to throw the sound far wider than I expected. It adds far more depth and thump than my TV speakers could deliver and it is a doddle to stream music to. The Playbar does need to be wired to the internet hub, which is worth considering before purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding This player is the best yet and compared to others previously tried nothing compares, just need the sub to finish it off
Date published: 2017-03-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos Playbar I'm not a speaker buff, but with the imminent price rise across all SONOS products I decided to take the plunge on the Sound bar. I only wish I had done so sooner. I already have a Play 3 and Play 1 and as with all SONOS products setting up is straightforward and I was enjoying it within a few minutes of unboxing. I have had this less than a week but have been so far impressed with the power of the base which is particularly noticeable on video games with explosions giving a satisfying thud! Movies too benefit with dialogue sounding crisper and soundtracks really coming to the fore! Not convinced I will need a base for my requirements, but am looking forward to pairing this up with a couple of Play 1s in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent replacement for TV speakers The Sonos Playbar is the perfect choice for anyone who wishes to replace their very ordinary sounding TV speakers. It was very easy to install and the user interface via the Sonos Application (iOS) is intuitive and user friendly. With the option to expand the system with a Sonos Subwoofer and Surround Sound Speakers, the Sonos Playbar can quickly be converted to an entire home theater system. I am very happy with my purchase.
