Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound fills the room Having spent a long, long time thinking about the cost, finally made the leap and made the purchase, along with two Play 1 speakers. The set up process is simple using the iOS app. It is difficult to describe the quality of how good the sound is. The clarity of dialogue make it seem the characters are in the room with you. The sound is powerful without being overwhelming but not really seen a film with great surround yet. Now saving up to add a Sub to the system. A surprise bonus has been Tunein radio and all the stations it brings. Radio and music play is made really simple with the Sonos App.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works really well in the space. I bought the SONOS system for use in a reception area rather than a domestic location and am glad to say the quality of the sound is crystal clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks fab, easy to setup & manage. Brilliant sound Bought this a few weeks back to go with a new TV. Having already got a number of Sonos speakers, this was the only sound bar option I was looking at and it's not disappointed. Easy integration with the TV and when not watching, can stream music on it independently, or group it with the other Sonos speakers to immerse myself in music.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Early Days but disappointing! I have recently bought a Playbar and two speakers. The set up was pretty easy, but I found that songs from my Apple iPhone were stopping midway through. Contacted Sonos Support who advised me what to do. It still does not play a record through to the end and the overall sound was not as good as I expected. I sent a diagnostic to Sonos together with this message”Just a couple of points:- I have disabled the functionality of Airplay on Sky Q I have removed the Airport Utility App as my Time Capsule is not connected and I could not find any reference to Airplay anyway. Finally, although I have had Apple TV it is not currently connected to my system so have not been able to disable Airplay. The music still does not complete. Furthermore, I have tested the stereo affect of my Playbar and 2 rear speakers and the result was very disappointing. The front Playbar sounds fine but I might just as well have no rear speakers for the impact they are making. Is there a test that you would recommend that would Wow the listener/viewer. At the moment I am deeply disappointed, but I hope that it is something that I should be doing but have not.” Still no reply. Not impressed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good enough but not amazing This playbar was bought to replace a Q acoustics M4 which broke.The Sonos was easy to set up with the online instructions using an ipad. It is used in a room measuring about 5m x 4m with a ceiling around 3m. The sound at normal TV volume is neutral, clear and pleasant to listen to. At higher volume, music can be a bit shrill for me. The base is deeper than the Q acoustics but the overall quality is not so much better and hard to justify the extra cost. We do not have the Sonos sub nor the play speakers. Perhaps the Sub would open up the depth of the sound as many reviewers suggest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unreal sound, coupled with Sonos One’s. I bought this and two Sonos One’s around 2 months ago and what a purchase it was. The sound that comes out these is crystal clear, even at full volumes (which is deafening). It’s certainly safe to say I have the Sonos bug. Finally, the guys at Richer Sounds in Nottingham couldn’t have been more helpful. Top people selling top products!
