Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good, and sounds good I purchased this a couple of weeks ago along with other sonos pieces) to replace an old Panasonic Cinema system and to augment my current sonos system which I have throughout the house. A great addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect replacement I returned to the UK. from France where I had a large house and an AV system with wires everywhere. The Sonos Playbase, with its complete absence of wires suits perfectly our small house in Cambridge. The sound is excellent, both from the TV and when streaming my music collection. A superb addition to our lives!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos Playbase:Perfect Bought this recently, works wonderfully alone but when linked to other Sonos speakers and via Sonos amp to built in ceiling speakers makes listening to tv and audio awesome throughout whole house

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A revelation in sound Having had 2 Yamaha soundbars I was always disappointed in speech from them. I have had Sonos equipment since 2006 and when I heard the Playbase I was amazed at the sound quality from this unit. We bought this and 2 PLAY:1s for surround sound. Not only is the built-in sub-woofer really impressive but the quality of speech is fantastic. I know that there have been criticisms that the sound is too trebly but to my ears and my wife's it is great. We no longer need the sub-titles on films. My only caveat is that you need to check if your TV has Dolby Digital Passthrough as the only cable which connects your TV to the Playbase is a digital optical one and some TVs do not pass through the Dolby Digital signal correctly. Mine works perfectly but check first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality sound Bought this over two months ago glad I did better quality sound than my Panasonic tv, no need for a sub as bass is good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Great product which was made easier to purchase due to the great level of service from Huwi the store manager. He set the product up in his room and wow was I blown away. I had previously purchased the q acoustic m2 which was rated 5 starts but when I get home and set it up it was very poor on sound quality and did not look good at all. I took it back to Richer sounds and I was refunded immediately and I swapped it for the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good sound and function It was problematic to set up because the wifi set up didn't work. I rang the Sonos helpline and I have to say they were excellent. I had to plug it in to the router using the ethernet cable and set it up that way. Then took it back to the living room and it worked fine on wifi. I love the sound and the variety of streaming music apps. Also like the seemingly infinite amount of radio stations. App is good - my wife and I have it on our Samsung and Apple phones. It looks great as well - very cool. Would've been 5 stars if the set up had been easier.
