Epic Sound for Your Television
PLAYBAR’s nine-speaker driver soundbar design floods your home with huge waves of epic, full-cinema sound for TV, Web, Movies and Video Games.
All the music on earth
PLAYBAR is also a stand-alone all-in-one Sonos player that allows you to wirelessly stream all the music on earth—your iTunes library, your favourite music services, and thousands of Internet radio stations, shows and podcasts.
PLAYBAR connects to your TV using a single optical cable and power cord and plays everything that is connected to your TV, from cable boxes to gaming consoles.
No rewiring required. Connect PLAYBAR to your home WiFi network using the free Sonos Controller App.
The PLAYBAR’s long, thin soundbar shape allows it to sit easily above or beneath your TV on a table or a console, or to be wall-mounted.
PLAYBAR speaks DOLBY DIGITAL and stereo, so you never miss a moment of the action.

The Sonos Playbar is a lounge-unifying device that will let you dump your remote controls and your old hi-fi in the bin. Once you’ve set it up, it’ll also let you control both your TV and your audio system with your phone. For everything but the most crashing of movie soundtracks the Sonos Playbar sounds great too, with excellent clarity and an expansive soundstage.
||Taken as a whole system, there’s no denying that this soundbar sounds fantastic. For films and TV, the clear audio and excellent range make it one of the best soundbars that we’ve listened to. It’s great that you can also add extra components to make it a full surround-sound system.
It’s one of the best soundbars we’ve seen and you certainly won’t be disappointed if you buy it.
||It isn’t cheap, but the Sonos Playbar is money well spent: there’s enough rumble in the bass to give action movies an appropriate sense of drama, but the mid-range and high-frequency audio is sweet and clean.
