Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good start into Sonos After reading the review from What Hi-fi who gave it 4 stars I have to agree with some of there comments. The mid range can be harsh with some music or films also lacks some detail like symbols etc. But on the other hand linked to there Sonos Sub, the base is flawless and impressive. The sound from the Playbase is not dull it is powerful, you can tell this is more to the American taste not as refined. Some music is a joy to listen to, it is good with disco and rock Enigma, Sade, Deep Purple, sound great but some voices like George Michaels voice looses control. With films the sound from my BluRay is powerful all though not in 5.1 it is still impressive. Netflix is the same again better through the tv. To make it 5.1 I would have to add 2 Play ones for the rear. The only thing I don't like is that I will have to buy a Sonos Connect to play my CD player and record deck there should be some cheaper way around this issue. In all the Playbase is enjoyable to listen to .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for such a small device I bought this to replace my old separate system as I didn't want to run cables in my new house. Very pleased with the sound and it can be extended across other rooms in my house easily. It only took 15 mins to go through the setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound Only had for a short time but makes watching movies more immersive and a much more enjoyable experience handles music well with deep base the sub would be a good addition but check out the performance of the Playbase 1st as it may might be overkill depending on your set up and budget

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound quality Wish I had bought Sonos years ago before wasting money on inferior quality speakers.
