Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sonos playbase Superb clear sound. Thought I'd need a sub woofer at a later date but no, the sound is more than sufficient for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos Playbase I bought the Sonos Playbase to upgrade my current TV set up and system. This also included two Sonos speakers and stands. It has totally transformed my listening experience. The sound is first class and above and beyond my expectations. I listen to a lot of music and watch music concerts on blu-ray. The new item has just enhanced my listening experience. Would not swap for anything else. Great product(s)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service & Great Store I purchased a Sonos PlayBase about two weeks ago after deliberating for nearly 12 months. Its the best decision I’ve made for long time on Sonos product. It makes the sound more pleasurable/enjoyable when watching tv or listening to music. Richer Sounds (Oxford) made the experience easy & effortless. Can’t wait for the next Sonos product & helpful team at Richer Sounds (Oxford)!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less clutter I had a wired 5.1 system of good quality before, but the boss didn’t like the size of the speakers and most of all , wires showing ,so reluctantly I decided to go wireless, after a lot of research I went for the Sonos playbase with two rear speakers. Conclusion. Much neater, easy setup,we don’t have Alexia or anything like that, so at present it’s a TV system, sound quality good, not as powerful as my old system but overall very pleased, and if you are fed up with clutter and wires showing, I would recommend this product, we do not have the base as it seems a lot of cash for what it is, and as it’s a system you can add to , we may later, We buy our tv/hi fi from Richer Sounds as the staff have been very good with advice with no pressure, and a very good guarantee, although we had to go to John Lewis to see/hear the system in action. Richer Sounds didn’t have the item in stock but delivery was very quick and kept well informed as to time of drop off, play base very well packed, speakers and stands came in manufactures boxes and as it was raining got wet so had to recycle, I normally keep packing.

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!
