PLAYBAR - Sonos Home Theater Soundbar Speaker

The Sonos Playbar home theater soundbar adds premium audio to your flat screen TV in a sleek, easy to hook-up package. You no longer need a complicated home theater system, with multiple speakers and hundreds of feet of cable, just to enjoy theater-quality sound in your home. Instead, the Playbar connects to your TV with a single optical cable, playing audio from any source also connected to the TV.

Hidden behind the unassuming black grill are six midrange speakers and three tweeters, each powered by an individual Class-D digital amplifier. Combined with sophisticated signal processing, the result is a range of crystal-clear audio which replicates the enveloping effect of a traditional surround sound home theater system. If you need additional bass, the Sonos Playbar can wirelessly synch with the heavy-hitting Sonos Sub.

Simply being the best TV soundbar wasn't enough for Sonos, the leader in wireless music streaming technology. They went one step further by also making the Playbar a standalone music streaming device. Tune into your favorite channels on services like Pandora or Slacker Radio, with the available Android and iPhone apps, or stream songs stored on your NAS to the Playbar. The Sonos Playbar works seamlessly with dozens of music services and can synch with up to 16 computers or NAS devices, providing you with nearly endless listening choices.

Key Features:

  • Complements HD television screens with richly textured HiFi sound
  • Wirelessly streams all the music on earth
  • Simple to set up, control and expand
  • Requires just two cords: one power cord, one optical cord (both included). Syncs with other Sonos speakers wirelessly
  • Understands and speaks most IR remote's language and can be controlled by free apps for your Android®, iPhone® or iPad®
  • Plays all sources plugged in to your HDTV: cable/SAT boxes, Blu-Ray players, and video game consoles. If it's connected to your HD, PLAYBAR will play it

PLAYBAR requires an optical connection, which is standard on most current Televisions. If you are unsure if your television is compatibility, please contact an Abt specialist to discuss your current make/model.

This sound bar is great! I am a product designer and care greatly about audio quality and aesthetics. This product reaches or surpasses my extremely high qualifications/expectations. The design details are well done and the audio quality of the bar alone are fantastic. Living in a condo, it's almost too good as I fear annoying my neighbors. The bass booms and the difference between before and after installation is astounding.

I primarily use this unit to provide sound for my TV and music streaming from the internet. The amount of programs that are accessible is impressive. I'd highly doubt anyone could complain of their favorite software/app not being included. The speaker sounds so good I've used it for music during parties and working from home instead of my other previously owned devices. I'll even mute the TV and crank up a music app just because it's a delight to listen to music that way. The sound quality and directional speakers during TV sessions are great, friends have literally asked if people were outside of my high rise condo or at the door because of the speakers directional capabilities. It rivals any sound bar and does sound as if there are speakers to either side.

The main reason I bought this is because my TV lacked great audio clarity and volume. I researched for 3-4 months which sound bar system to go with and bench-marked some of the most well respected brand names in the industry. This product launched 2 months into my research. The actual final reason I made this purchase is because it was one of the only systems that did not require buying additional components to directly interface with the unit itself via phone/tablet for internet streaming; moreover, for the price this is the system that allowed me to 'test drive' one of the modular units (play bar) to see if I actually wanted to expand. In this modern day, I wanted to have everything at my fingertips (on my phone), that promise is delivered. While some consider it pricey other respectable setups require you to pay the same amount or more of both the Sub and Play Bar without the modular, convenient, expandable, (hopefully) sustainable, integrated system Sonos has designed.

Very easy to set up, less than 3 minutes. Very easy to control, download an app. Some people's reviews argue that one input is a problem and/or it lacks true 3.1-5.1. Okay, I would argue that unless you were told it wasn't true 5.1 or a true audiophile, which there are very few, you would not know the difference. This reason alone made me hesitate and not buy it at launch so I could read reviews first. In my experience in the picky realm of product design including consumer research, many people pretend to be audiophiles, but they are more focused on statistics rather than enjoying music like a normal person. They'll complain if it's blatantly obvious or if they are told it's not 'true', but may not have even noticed if the latter. If the scalability of the music is an issue perhaps this isn't the unit for you. From first hand experience, a good analogy is the difference is far less than regular radio vs. HD radio in my opinion. One input works fine for me because I have a modern TV that all of my components/peripherals are hard wired to.

I love the modular and expandable aspects of this line and those factors are another part of the reason for purchase. I can later add pieces to complete my setup to the level I choose.

I titled this 'so far' with 5 stars because of my extremely demanding personal requirements of a great/successful product based upon my profession of designing exactly that; basically it must prove to be sustainable and last through a respectable amount of time, while maintaining high audio and aesthetic quality. (ie. not break in 6-12 months) If it does not the review WILL change.

In conclusion this product is everything it says it is and more, it's honestly great to amazing - audio from your smart device, great sound, clarity and quality, above all easy to use and very well designed. If you think it's pricey consider the market and work smarter, if you are worried about one input get a new TV, if you are a true audiophile and demand to have true 5.1 etc get something else.

I've already recommended this to friends and colleagues without any encouragement from Sonos, hopefully I'm short-listed to trial and rate new products! :)

I use iTunes, iTunes Match, and Apple Radio for all my music needs. The Sonos Airplay doesn't support ANY of those well:
• The Sonos app doesn't keep track of Play Count in iTunes.
• Apple Radio doesn't work through the Sonos app
• iTunes Match doesn't work unless you download the songs separately to your device before using the Sonos app.

All of this would be fixed with AIRPLAY! I dropped a lot of money on this PlayBar and woofer. What a hug disappointment that I need another $350 for a Sonos Connect to use Airplay!

About Me Critical Ear Seeking Qual

Pros

  • Easy To Set Up
  • Great House Jukebox
  • Interfaces Well With TV
  • Intuitive Controls
  • Syncs Music From Multiple

Cons

  • Lacking Midrange Quality
  • Poor Sound For Cost
  • Sounds Cheap Higher Vols

Best Uses

    Very easy to setup and find and centralize music on multiple platform sources (iMac, Android phone, iPad). Sound quality good but disappointing for the premium price. Expected more stability and quality at higher volumes. Expected more quality midrange given its target use as tv audio output.

      Comments about Sonos Home Theater Soundbar Speaker:

      This product was so easy to setup. It's worth the money if you want an easy, essentially wireless, sound system. Open the app, hit the button on the component, go through the guided wizard, and you are ready to rock.

      I find the app on the iPad to be a bit easier to read over the iPhone but both function well.

      The only small gripe I have with this product is that there is no "Off" functionality that I can see. When you pause the music, it stops streaming so you don't kill your bandwidth but I would still would like an "Off" function in an update.

        I bought the playbar to use for my TV and for general music listening. I liked the idea of just having one unit that could do both. I already had 2 of the Play Ones so I used them as the back speakers. The set up was easy - I just followed the instructions step by step and it was all ready to go within 15 minutes. Some reviews said it was difficult to set up - but I had zero issues. I knew is was good to go when my wife complained that it was too loud!
        Surround sound is great - makes you feel like you are really there. The general music quality is also excellent - it is in a 2 story family room / kitchen area and has no problems filling the space with music. So far really happy with the purchase.

          Wonder why Sonos does not offer a power switch if this cannot be done remotely.

Makes music easy.

              Very happy with this as a surround sound solution. came from the component world and am very satisfied with quality of the sound and simplicity of the set up. Have expewrienced occassional remote interface connection problems, otherwise seamless. Also have Sonos sub woofer and Play 3 surround sound speakers.

              Pros

              • Interfaces Well With TV

              Cons

              • Difficult To Set Up

              Best Uses

              • Larger Rooms

              • Television Shows

              I use the soundbar in my mancave. It replaces an all-in-one entertainment system/BluRay player and I can't believe that I waited this long to purchase one. The sound it pushes out is incredible. It took me a while to get it tuned in properly but once it was set, the sound blew me away. The only issue I had is it is a bit difficult to set up. Included documentation and online support could be clearer. I was having an issue with it not connecting and finally after looking through the set-up and my wireless router configuration, I realized the channels were different. Once I put them on the same channel, sync occured almost immediately. I will be adding a sub and satellites soon for a full surround experience.
