Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid purchase I chose the Soundbase because I'm in that 70% of TV owners where my TV isn't attached o a wall. We wanted to have only a small number of speakers and have avoided needing a subwoofer thanks to the incredible bass from this unit. I'm no audiophile but I'm very happy with the overall sound particularly having disabled the compressing "loudness" option through the sonos app. Great for TV audio and music from Funk to Classical. Thank you Richer Sounds for your stick of reliably good equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant speaker with rich powerful sound Bought as part of a 5.1 sound system to sit under a TV on a stand. Would grace any living room and sounds great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds stunning, simple to use, looks great I had an Onkyo (NR609) with a wired 5.1 Q Acoustics set up for a number of years. While the sound was reasonable it was nowhere near worth the cost and effort, and the wife was none too pleased with how much the whole set up imposed on the lounge. I was looking for a great sounding, simple, unobtrusive, good looking alternative. Having had a demo of the Sonos Soundbase in Cardiff's Richer Sounds I didn't bother looking any further. Set up is seamless and fool-proof. It paired painlessly with the Sony Bravia remote. I've not even bothered upgrading the wimpy looking optical cable that came bundled. It's picks up internet radio stations, Spotify and my NAS DLNA server. Most importantly the sound is truly stunning. We don't really do the whole home cinema thing so more than happy with the built-in woofer. Music sounds better that through the Onkyo / Q Acoustics. The Android app is pretty good, although I do tend to use Spotify or BubbleUPnP and select output to the Sonos rather than use the Sonos app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound for both TV and digital music coll Been using for nearly a month now and am very impressed. Its size and shape means it is very unobtrusive sitting underneath the TV yet the sound it produces is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic service and a quality product I purchased the sonos playbase from your York store. From the moment I walked in the staff were attentive (not pushy though!) and highly informed about every product in the store. I some spent time deciding and went for a pint to mull it over. No pressure to buy, which is precisely why I will come to you guys every time.
