Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sonos Playbase We purchased this a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t be happier. Hard to imagine life before it. It fits nicely under the TV and hardly know it’s there. Very easy to set up through the app’s step by step guide and within 10 mins we were up and running. We also added 2 x Play 1’s for the surround, all part of the app setup...wow!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy set up. I already had Sonos equipment so my expectations of the quality and ease to install this new Playbase were met.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome addition to the SONOS family Bought this to replace a soundbar (not SONOS) and couldn't be happier with the result - fills the room with sound with the added bonus of being able to use part of a group of SONOS products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely sounding bar Fantastic depth and clarity, feels like being at the movies when watching Netflix. Not cheap but sounds brilliant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish and great for TV and movies Very stylish appearance, luxuriously packaged. The sound for TVs and movies is impressive for its size. Speech is clear and low frequencies have decent weight. Streaming music was more limited - less engaging and tuneful compared with a hifi system. I found that the trueplay tuning made the sound worse - hollow and disembodied - but its effectiveness may be room dependent? The app is easy to use. Setup is simple.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent purchase I already had a Sonos set-up around the house so when my old AV Amp packed up it seemed a good idea to integrate the TV into the system. The choice was the Playbase or the Playbar and I opted for the former. Set up was as easy as every previous Sonos product I've bought (once I'd restarted my router for some strange reason) and the audio, once combined with a couple of satellite Play 1's, is pretty impressive. I don't have the Sonos Sub and I'm not sure if I need it, as the lows end is pretty decent already. The only things I'm not wildly impressed with are the room tuning, which I tried twice and was too harsh so I've bypassed it, and the strange TV volume interaction with the Sonos iPhone app. For some strange reason the TV volume is always too low until I boost it in the app itself. I await an app or firmware update. BTW Reading Richer Sounds staff were really helpful, guiding me through the pros and cons of my set-up but letting me make an informed decision

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good My TV is quite old, acquired it second hand, and it does not have the right Sonos to TV connection. But RicherS suggested using the Freeview satellite box which does work. Sonos advise it only be connected to TV but this connection works OK.The only thing I have found is that the TV sound can still be used but I just keep this turned down. The Playbase is a lot of money but I am pleased with this purchase.
