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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality, easy set up I decided to add to our home Sonos system this Soundbase speaker (in black) and I am so glad I did. As always with Sonos products, it is very easy to set up. The build quality is excellent and the sound is even better. We have a Soundbar on the other TV and I was concerned the Soundbase would not be as good. However, I have been pleasantly surprised. An excellent addition to the Sonos system, highly recommended. Ordering and delivery from Richer Sounds was as brilliant as always.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flawed Diamond When the sound comes out 5.1 it is fantastic. So let’s play a blu-ray of Dunkirk with the PS4 as the source. Oh no you won’t. The Playbase and Playbar can’t handle DTS so the result is either no sound at all or stereo only. Some reading on the web suggests that there are workarounds involving 3rd party HDMI switches or purchasing a new DVD player that can handle the conversion. That’s all good and well but I just forked out £700 for a sound Base that is meant to work out the box with one cable i.e. optical. Obviously optical cables don’t have the bandwidth to handle DTS so you are snookered. Another problem with Optical; say bye bye to the volume number on the screen, optical can’t handle that either. You will be surprised how annoying that is. If watching movies on DVD using a PS4 is your thing then this is not for you. More research on the web shows that this has been an issue for a long time and Sonos have showed no interest in fixing it. No HDMI is a big issue, research hard before you buy. The new Beam does have HDMI ARC out (no in) so I don’t know if that would help. This is a real pity as because the sound is amazing when the 5.1 works but if Netflix etc start to stream in DTS in the future you may end up with a very expensive brick in your living room???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expert advice at online prices I wanted to improve my TV / Film experience with something that looked good, had minimal wires, deep bass and voices you could pick out in the mix - Sonos Soundbase did the job and am now looking to buy more Sonos speakers to spread good tunes around my house. A bit more expensive than I had budgeted but in the past I have paid less for less and ended up buying twice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy setup, fantastic sound I bought this sonos on the basis I’ve got the system in my house already. It definitely didn’t disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a piece of kit!! The depth of sound from the play base is simply stunning. Rich tones. Deep bass and full cinema experience thro some clever set up tools which involves walking around your room with phone in hand. Very simple to install.
