Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I purchased this after seeing and hearing it else where and being very very impressed with the sound have used this to replace my wired surround system I had with this and other products from the Sonos range. Price does seem a bit high at first but once you hear the sound the price won't bother you any more

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound I bought this last month and the sound is amazing for music, watching movies and even Tv. Gone are the days of a Hi Fi or stack system. This just looks like part of the furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great integration with existing setup I watch a fair number of movies, live sports etc and was looking to improve the audio experience from my Sony TV and try and get close to a home theater experience. Already bought into the Sonos ecosystem and owning some Play 1s, i was particularly interested in reviews on the performance of the playbase when paired with play 1 speakers as rear surrounds. Theres no two ways about it, this isn't a cheap piece of kit and the advantage of being able to pop into a store and listen to the device was a huge bonus. Learning that Richer had a free 6 year extended warranty over other retailers meant that buying from them not only supported my local store but was also a win for me meant it was a no-brainer to purchase from them. The device comes in a relatively large box which is possible to carry but is significant in weight - something to consider if you can't drive to a store! Once home, the playbase was simple to set-up with only one optical in port to be connected to the optical out of the TV. Set-up of the speaker is the same experience as with all Sonos devices and completed thought he app on your phone or tablet. If you have other play 1s in the same room, these can be configures as "surrounds" and work this way for both music and TV output. Whilst the optical out makes for simple configuration, the performance of the playbase is somewhat dependent on your devices and capability of your TV to output Dolby 5.1. In short, you need to configure any device attached to the television to output the highest surround quality it can and then configure your TV to pass through the signal to optical. It then comes down to what is being broadcast and this can vary from Stereo, through Dolby 2.0 to full 5.1. Sound on full Dolby 5.1 is impressive and immersive - Pirates of the Caribbean sounded like rain was all around. Configuring your TV/Satellite remote to control audio is very straightforward and both my SKY remote and the TV remote can now control the SONOS volume. I found that there are a few options to tweak to make the best of the experience: - nighttime mode : reduces bass and increases more subtle sounds. Living in a flat I tend to have this on all the time as the bass is quite powerful! - Speech enhancement : to make the speech stand out more from the background noise and music. Again, I tend to have this on. - Surround (play 1s): Ambient (default) or full - I set mine to full but sometimes it can be a little too powerful so 75% is a good setting. In summary, the playbase is one of those items that you don't realise what a difference it will make until you use one and I would thoroughly recommend it if you already have a couple of play 1s to add as surround speakers. In terms of price, theres no real way round it - the device is expensive but it integrates completely into your sonos set-up, feels like a quality product which should last for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound is amazing from such a neat box I am a sucker for Sonos products despite the fact there is no portable product and it doesn’t yet work with Alexa! That said the quality and sounds from this box is amazing. Tv is transformed and of course it easily links with all my other products and works on my phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding customer service I dithered over what to buy over a 4 month period. Richer Sounds Reading were immensely patient with me taking time to explain and demonstrate my options on several occasions. With their help I am confident I have made the right choice and am very satisfied with the end result. As a note, if you are using the Sonos with a Panasonic TV the only way to get the sound to be used on the TV remote is to go into 'hotel mode' (not in the manual). There are lots of forums that explain how to do this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bit of kit After my stereo of 23years packed up (originally brought from Richer Sounds Watford) i decided to go for the SONOS and what a really excellent piece of kit it is, the addition of a Sub has made a massive improvement too. Expensive but thoroughly recommended, even the misses has asked for more SONOS products in other rooms now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great clarity a good way to start with Sonos and make a big difference My TV sound was average on it's own, but sounded poorer when the volume was increased. I have a NAS drive with all my CD collection on it and did not want to have wires in my recently renovated, plastered and furnished living/dining room. Sonos Playbase allows me to access my NAS drive and sounds fantasticly clear with great pure base, not overpowering at all in my 300 sq ft living/dining room. It's also great with BluRay and DVD played through my TV with crisp highs and great spacial stereo. it does not work well with all dolby sound sources which is a shame and has no HDMI, but it actually does what I need it to. I may spoil myself and get a couple of Play 1's for rear surround/ shared stereo in the future, but they are not needed in the most part due to the limitation on 5.1. I won't be investing in the subwoofer as I think that there is enough bass already. It was a doddle to setup and even my tech adverse wife has mastered the controls via ipad/iPhone already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A doddle to set up I bought this with two Play 1s and a sub as a replacement surround sound system for my Samsung 4K TV. The previous system was a Samsung Playbar, sub and two Samsung R6 speakers. What a waste of money they were. The Samsung Multiroom App is USELESS !! The two R6s were forever "dropping out" of the configuration. The Sonos system just worked perfectly from the initial set up which was a doddle to do. I have had it a week now and it has worked perfecly with great sound. Thoroughly recommended.
