I have been looking for a system for my famiyroom that is compact and has quality music. I had the old style system, you know, big speakers, wires everywhere, etc. Time to get with 2013. Read a bunch of reviews on play bars, speakers, sub's and this came out on top. It fits perfect in the small spot I have for it and sounds great. Not overpowering but complimentary to the music. Being tech challenged one phone call to Sonos and I was set up in a few minutes. They were patient and so helpful. And actually spoke plain english so I didn't have to keep asking them to repeat themselves. Apple and Sonos are top on my list for support!! The tech showed me how to balance it with the room and bingo....great quality music. I am adding a picture and the sub is right by the fireplace so you may not see it which was my hope. My room is compact overlooking my kitchen and I needed music to fill the room but didn't want the components overwhelming. Fit the bill perfect!!!

I love the concept, ease of install and simple multi-room control of the whole Sonos setup. The Spotify interface is much less easy to use quite annoying when compared to the classical spotify app, (starting radio, automatically playing songs next in list without importing the whole playlist to your sonos current playlist) I am forced to bypass playing music via the sonos app and play songs via airplay off my tv on the sonos network. Voice clarity while watching movies, while improved with the sonos feature still seems a bit poor. The bass seems weak, and when raising the bass in a typical setup vibrations occur being forced to lower the bass output. I also seem to find the sonos 5 too small for a bigger room, and the sonos 1 very flat in sound even considering its size, it could be a bit more impressive compared to other small speakers that really pack a punch. I miss the real 5.1 ability which is mostly not available on most older tvs we have as well as potentially an even smaller less bulky 5.1 back speakers which could run only on batteries for those who dont want cables connecting the back speakers on a 5.1 setup.
I also see mentions of battery life, however, I havent seen anywhere clearly stated if any of the speakers have a rechargable internal battery? Overall however I love the ease of setup and iphone control. I love streaming multiple rooms with its own music.

    Comments about Sonos High Gloss Black Wireless Subwoofer:

    The sheer weight of the SUB says a lot about its performance. Let's face it, good drivers require larger magnets. So, loading this into my car made me salivate thinking about setting it up with my Playbar. I imagine all the thumping my wife would complain about; all the rolling thunder and pulsing bass lines. But it was the subtleties in the Ambient tracks I enjoy on Pandora that really set this SUB apart from many others.

                  Comments about Sonos High Gloss Black Wireless Subwoofer:

                  I have it laying flat under an entertainment unit. It comes with round, felt pad 'stickers' to protect the gloss finish when the unit is not standing upright. I have it paired with the SONOS Playbar and two Play:1's. As with the other components, it was easy to set up. I was impressed with the sound during the calibration phase: THIS THING THUMPS! It is surprising how much it adds to the overall sound quality of movies and music. When paired with the other components, the system recalibrates itself: my Playbar and Play:1's deliver only the highs and midrange sounds while the SUB exclusively handles the low end sounds. There was no adjustment necessary on the user's end to make this happen. I live in an apartment, and at times, it seems as if it is too much for the space. However, thanks to the software's Night Sound and the ability to turn off the SUB from within the app, I do not worry about disturbing neighbors. I have not had the opportunity to push it to its limits because of apartment living, but then again, there is no need to: volume-wise, I have not listened to it above 50%, and it rocks! This is my second subwoofer. The first was from another company and is older, but there is no comparison. I find myself listening to music and watching movies again that I have not listened to, or watched, in a while just because everything sounds BETTER. Excellent product; I love the looks and sounds great.
