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:

    Was using just a pair of Play3's in my home office. Just out of nowhere I decided to try a Sub. The sub added the missing bass, but also filled in the midrange. In fact it made the Play3's sound so much better and with a very sound soundstage and sonic imaging. I am kicking myself in the backsides for waiting so long to do this. Don't make my mistake!

      I am awe struck by the sound of SUB, listening to the awesome bass of Skynyrd's "One More From the Road" live version of "Workin for MCA", proved this product meets and exceeds all expectations. You will be shocked at the continuity and clarity of this product. Do not put this purchase off as I did. Coupled with the Playbar and Play 1, this is heavenly. AAA+

          Had the sub for a couple of years. Took Sonos from a listen to sometimes to listen to all the time. Maybe not the abolute highest end sound for the real audiophile snob but it is certainly great for me. By adding the sub Sonos is the best combinatioin of ease of use and sound quality that I have ever had.

              Comments about Sonos High Gloss Black Wireless Subwoofer:

              this is a continuation of my review of setting up a sonos 5.1 surround home theater system. I set the sub in the front left corner of my living room. the sub needs to be plugged to an a/c outlet for power. it has an Ethernet port, should you decide to use it as the main wireless "hub" for your sonos surround system (I have the playbar wired to my router). I use the sub wirelessly. immediately one can notice the improved bass for music, movies, and television programming. setup is super easy with the sonos software (either on computer or mobile device on same network as the wired sonos product). the device is fairly heavy, and is shipped in a large box, making it a little difficult to unpack. it looks very nice in the glossy black finish. main negative is the cost...$700 retail is awfully pricey for a subwoofer. as always, excellent service with abt. my rep gave me a decent discount, no sales tax, no shipping/handling costs, and prompt shipping and delivery. I'm definitely enjoying watching my blu ray movies in surround sound. much recommended if you already have other sonos products.

                    Comments about Sonos High Gloss Black Wireless Subwoofer:

                    Great sounding bass unit. I was initially skeptical but the quality and depth base in the large open Sonos room at the dealer was enough to convince me to purchase. No regrets. Provides more than ample bass in our large family room combined with the sound bar and two Play 3s in surround sound move. Great technical design compared to the more classic units I've had that blast downward or to the rear.
