    Your TV’s got the video part nailed. But the audio? That leaves a lot to be desired. Especially when it’s movie time. Game time. Music time. Come to think of it, any time.

    PLAYBAR is the slim, sleek, beautifully-engineered soundbar that delivers great audio for all your movies, TV shows, sports, and games—and wirelessly streams your favorite music, too.

    It is part of Sonos, the wireless Home Sound System that fills as many rooms as you want with great-sounding tunes.

    It’s a new, better way to fill each day with the sounds you love.

    Key Features

    What you see is what you hear.
    PLAYBAR features nine speakers designed in a phased speaker array to deliver “directionality”. In plain English that means if there’s a huge crash on the left side of the screen, you’ll hear it there because the speakers on the left are playing the sound and the speakers on the right are playing the inverse of that sound. Crazy, but that’s what it takes to make it sound real.

    Great sound, guaranteed.
    Trueplay tuning analyzes the room then adjusts your PLAYBAR
    to deliver the best sound possible. For both music and home theater.

    Attention night owls.
    Watching late at night and don’t want to disturb the rest of the house? Turn on Night Sound. At lower volumes, quiet sounds are enhanced and the intensity of loud sounds is reduced.

    Simple Setup.
    Two cords. That’s it. One power cord. And one optical cord that connects to your TV. You don’t even have to read a manual because the Sonos app guides you through every step of the setup process. Including connecting PLAYBAR to your WiFi so you can stream your favorite music. 

    Plays well with others.
    Cable boxes. Gaming consoles. Satellite boxes. Blu-Ray players. If it’s connected to your TV, PLAYBAR will play it.

    One less remote to worry about.
    PLAYBAR works with almost all TV, cable box, and universal remotes by learning their infrared (IR) commands during setup. Which means the remotes you have are all you need.

    Wherever, however.
    Place it beneath your TV, on a table or console. Or mount it on the wall. Either way, it looks and sounds beautiful.

    Grows to 5.1 with zero drama.
    PLAYBAR is just the beginning of the ultimate home theater experience. Add a Sonos SUB for soul-shaking bass. Want full surround sound? A pair of PLAY:1, PLAY:3 or PLAY:5 speakers will make great rear channels.

    Your PLAYBAR needs some company.
    PLAYBAR makes movies, sports, TV, games, and music come alive…but just in one room. Add more Sonos speakers to your home and you can listen to what’s playing on your TV in any room. Perfectly synchronized. When you’re done watching, you can listen to all the music you love, all over your home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all in one system Love it. Was worried I'd need to fork out for the sub - but the levels of bass are punchy enough for general TV, music, gaming and movies. This replaced a 5.1 system that was barely used as it was too fiddly to change settings and channels - plus the bass was over the top from the sub. The sonos solved all my issues - its a simple, sleek system that just works - no fiddling around to turn it on or change volume AND NO WIRES ALL OVER MY LIVING ROOM! If I feel the need for more bass (doubtful) then I'll pick up the sub later on. That's what is great about this system. Its expandable and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with Sonos! Decision came down to Bose Soundtouch 300 or Sonos Playbar. After owning Bose speakers, docks, i've always loved Bose products! After doing some research for pros and cons and tested both soundbars, Sonos Playbar came out on top. Bose had too many problems with connections to TV, HDMI Arc wasn't working on most TV's, sound kept cutting out, and the list goes on as per Bose community forum. When I read how simple Sonos was to setup and the sound is equally as good as BOSE, it was a no brainer! I'm very happy with my Sonos purchase and the Sub just takes it to that next level Highly recommend you wont be disappointed!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice product, disappointing drawbacks Great sound bar that really comes alive with sub and rear speakers. If you are new to Sonos and love blu-ray you must be aware Sonos does NOT support DTS as it has no HDMI input resulting in a poorer manufactured surround sound instead. This forced me to buy a PS4 to transcode the DTS back to Dolby. Easy to set up and use, -when it works. In the past year I have had some major dropouts and connection problems with it. If you think you need the Boost, beware... does not work with all routers, and if your system is already set up you need to be very careful how you add it, as it messed up my whole system and required support to fix. Be aware it only supports 5.1 surround sound and is unlikely to ever support 7.1. These a the things I wished I researched before buying on hearsay alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound After a lot of deliberation I bought the Playbar along with a few other Sonos products (Sub Woofer and Play3's). By itself the playbar sounds great. With the rest it sounds awesome. Easy to setup, group and use with the app. Only requires the power and an optical cable for the playbar which is acceptable at the the TV. Highly recommend this product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the sound, great product We purchased the playbar and a few Play 5s and Play 3s for our home. IT was a toss up between the Bose and Sonos but the easy setup, firmware upgrades and the Sonos App made the decision for us. The sound is fantastic, though a little quieter than I had expected. I'd probably recommend getting the amp for that extra oomph if you're a move or gaming buff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is cutting edge technology Buying this Sonos play bar was the start of a superb sound system, on it's own it is excellent, with a Sonos sub and a pair of Sonos play 1's for surrounds it became super excellent. I have owned many top quality hifi systems over the years, this one is the best, smooth, clear, crisp sound and amazingly easy to adjust and operate with the free app. Enough raving, just buy it!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, Easy to setup and a pleasure to use I changed from my 5.1 Surround Amp with speakers and I've never looked back. This has been so easy to setup and sounds not too bad. The App is a pleasure to listen to all my saved music and the online content is easy to get onto to. This has re-ignited my passion for music as my old system was awkward and fiddly to use. Looking for to getting the smaller speakers for a whole house system
