SONOS PLAYBASE is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bit of kit After my stereo of 23years packed up (originally brought from Richer Sounds Watford) i decided to go for the SONOS and what a really excellent piece of kit it is, the addition of a Sub has made a massive improvement too. Expensive but thoroughly recommended, even the misses has asked for more SONOS products in other rooms now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great clarity a good way to start with Sonos and make a big difference My TV sound was average on it's own, but sounded poorer when the volume was increased. I have a NAS drive with all my CD collection on it and did not want to have wires in my recently renovated, plastered and furnished living/dining room. Sonos Playbase allows me to access my NAS drive and sounds fantasticly clear with great pure base, not overpowering at all in my 300 sq ft living/dining room. It's also great with BluRay and DVD played through my TV with crisp highs and great spacial stereo. it does not work well with all dolby sound sources which is a shame and has no HDMI, but it actually does what I need it to. I may spoil myself and get a couple of Play 1's for rear surround/ shared stereo in the future, but they are not needed in the most part due to the limitation on 5.1. I won't be investing in the subwoofer as I think that there is enough bass already. It was a doddle to setup and even my tech adverse wife has mastered the controls via ipad/iPhone already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A doddle to set up I bought this with two Play 1s and a sub as a replacement surround sound system for my Samsung 4K TV. The previous system was a Samsung Playbar, sub and two Samsung R6 speakers. What a waste of money they were. The Samsung Multiroom App is USELESS !! The two R6s were forever "dropping out" of the configuration. The Sonos system just worked perfectly from the initial set up which was a doddle to do. I have had it a week now and it has worked perfecly with great sound. Thoroughly recommended.
