Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound experience!! I was unsure whether a bluetooth setup could be as good as a traditional wired Dolby 5.1 setup but the sound of Sonos has blown me away. Crystal clear voice definition when watching TV with immersive surround sound using the bluetooth subwoofer and 2 Sonos 1 plus speakers as rear speakers. Music sounds clear and detailed and I can her the same music in each room including my Apple Home Hub as part of the network. Great Service too from the Brighton store too! Just Brilliant!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and so easy to set up Bought this for tv sound only as already got a Sonos amp for the music side, still this is great for music but for me this brings the films alive with the deep crystal clear sound it produces The playbase is linked to my Sky remote does power on and that’s it just alter settings in the app , got Sonos all around the house and just can’t fault it so a big thumbs up .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond all expectations Plugged it in optical into TV, didn't expect to have such a instant sound explosion. We could suddenly hear all the background sound to TV and films, crystal clear sounds from all areas of the film rather than a muddy sound which I didn't realise I had before... It was and is truly superb and worth every penny !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Noticeable improvement to sound Sound improvement evidenced by significant reduction in the use of subtitles when watching broadcast TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos Playbase Great sound and sits perfectly and unobtrusively underneath the tv which is just what we wanted. Streaming music from our iPhones is also easy and provides a great sound

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I had a soundbar previously, but after buying another sonos speaker which I was thoroughly pleased with, I decided to get a playbase. The quality of sound is great, truly clear and crisp but will good base quality ( and I still have plenty of room for adjustment within the app. I dont understand the technical terms, but i know what sunds good, and the playbase really does!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds good, looks good...a very 'sound' purchase. Bought this along with an LG LG OLED55C8PLA tv. The Sonos Play Base connects to the tv easily using the (supplied) optical cable. The sound is superb, I can control the volume with the tv's Magic Remote" and through the Sonos app play music from my phone. The Play Base gives my very expensive (but now quite ancient) hi-fi system a really good run for the money...I really am impressed.***** I should thank Andy at Richer Sounds, Lichfield for taking the time to show me this item and the guidance given...no pushy sales here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and so simple to set up After being rather sceptical about spending a lot of money on an accompanying soundbase for my recently purchased Sony 55 OLED Bravia, I was so pleased I did.. It was so simple to follow the instructions and the playbase was set up in a matter of minutes. I was so impressed with the playbase I decided to go the full distance and complimented my system with 3 play 1's and 1 play 5.. The sound and ease of use is brilliant..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed I bought this last month as the beginning of a home theatre setup. After having a typical projector/amp 5.1 setup for the last 14 years, I wanted a less intrusive with less cabling arrangement. Already after watching a couple of action movies at 50% volume the speaker has been very effective. While playing music it also sounds very good but I believe will be improved when I add some surrounds and possibly later on a sub. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Aesthetically beautiful but sonically challenged. I've been battling with this for 3 days now and cannot get it to produce basic TV sound of acceptable quality. Yes, it's very competent with film and music content but broadcast TV sounds dreadful. There is an overpowering and pervasive hissing sibilant sound which makes me dread every hard consonant and stops me concentrating on the programme content. Having read several Sonos community discussions I tried all combinations of night mode, speech enhancement and unit position all to no avail. So I was left with the "Trueplay" option. I have no IOS device so I had to borrow an Ipad. I set the whole thing up and went to settings only to find that the required "room settings" option was conspicuous in its absence! So, back to the Sonos website where this seems to be a well-known problem. Probably an incompatibility in levels of software. Well, both devices are at the latest level. Unfortunately the Ipad I borrowed is quite old and cannot be updated to IOS10 so I may not have all functions. So, now I'm faced with the option of paying a large sum of money to buy an IOS10 compatible device which would effectively be ..... yes, a soundbase remote control. Even then there's no guarantee that Trueplay will resolve this problem. I sit here now comparing this with my Yamaha Yas-101 which sounds much better. I also sit comparing my experience with my Naim Muso which sounded great out of the box and didn't require a £200 plus remote control to make it work! Sorry, Sonos but I think you're missing the point. It's a TV soundbase, it should produce reasonable TV sound quality without too much fuss or additional expense. It still looks good, though, and impresses admirers until switched on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted. Bought this to replace my almost obsolete surround sound system and I’m really pleased so far. Sound is crisp and clear with plenty of bass if needed. Not had it long enough to experiment with it much but very happy so far. Looking forward to adding to the system soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple set up, typically excellent SONOS sound. Simple set up once out the box (Great packaging also, if you are into that sort of thing), SONOS app is superb. Good sound quality, but I have added 2 x SONOS Ones which really improves the experience. Beautifully made product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit. I bought the playbase on the recommendation from my son. It was expensive but it ticks all the boxes when it comes to sound. I have linked it up to my new Sony 55 inch OLED tv and it looks fantastic.
Date published: 2018-12-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb build quality and seamless integration I bought this after lots of deliberating over varous soundbars and soundbases. I have a 2008 panasonic tv which already had decent sound but the playbase gives it a definate improvement with better base, clearer dialogue and an altogther fuller sound. It isn't a real step change that blew me away but I bought this knowing I would be building a full 5.1 system over the next two to three years (+sub+ play1s). Streaming music and airplay make this easy for all the family to use and it is nice looking under the tv without being overstated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound easy to set up Sounds great and looks good. This is my third Sonos system and I’ve been impressed with them all. All 3 link together and can be controlled via the app on my phone. The play base can also be controlled via my sky remote so no need for an extra remote control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic addition I bought this a couple of weeks ago for my new house and wow, what a fantastic addition this is. The sound is clear and crisp, coupled with the Sanus stand it looks fantastic as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sounds I bought this recently and found it easy to install and it has a great sound. Enough base to meet most requirements without a separate unit.

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 .
