SONOS Home Theater Sound Bar Speaker - PLAYBAR

The SONOS PLAYBAR Home Theater Sound Bar 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 mid-range 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 sync with the heavy-hitting SONOS Sub.

Simply being the best TV Sound Bar 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 player works seamlessly with dozens of music services and can sync 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 TV, 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.

The improvement in sound on this latest update is awesome - exactly what Sonos was missing - and it far exceeds any updates to the app itself. I switched from a Bose home theatre (jewel speakers) to Sonos in Oct (Playbar, sub, and Play 3's for rears). For the price, I like the wireless speakers (no wires, no receiver, run everything off your smart device), but was not impressed with Sonos's sound quality, and considering returning all of it....until this update. The sound before was hollow and difficult to hear people speaking unless you turned the volume way up, and I don't always listen to music or watch tv loud, and for the price, I expect good sound at lower levels too. Like my old bose system, I can now watch tv at low volume and get great sound. I think the sound at low volume is now better than bose, and when you turn the volume up for movies, big sports games, etc, it leaves Bose in the dust! (Sorry, I've only had bose before, so I can't compare to anything else) Sonos has made me a believer again - and being able to improve the sound with a simple online update just shoes how far ahead of the game they are. I now know my Sonos experience will only get better, and all it will ever need is a simple online update! I will be buying more Sonos speakers for the house. The app is great - I have no idea why people rate it so low - I think the app works perfectly.

Love Sonos - Disappointed with Playbar

I'm a huge Sonos fan and have 3 Play 1s and a Play 3 scattered around the house. We absolutely love them. It made sense then to buy the Playbar to integrate with our current system. However, after buying it and trying it out I had to return it for several reasons.

1. The main problem with the playbar is that Sonos wants you to plug it into the back of the TV but unfortunately most TVs (mine included) do not pass Dolby 5.1 audio so you really are not getting true surround sound. This may not seem like much of an issue but once you hear 5.1 surround sound, you can tell there's a huge difference. When you're spending this much money for a great set of speakers you want it to work correctly and unfortunately the way that Sonos is set up it just won't work that way. It is possible to hook up the Playbar directly to the source (blu-Ray player, Apple tv, etc) and get 5.1 sound, however, this requires multiple wires and a switch since the Playbar only has one input. With Sonos you are paying for ease of use and simplicity and so if you have to "rig up" a system to combat its shortcomings, then it's just not worth it. I did connect the play 1s as surrounds and it sounds great when connected directly to the source, however, this leads me to my next issue:

2. Lack of DTS support. If you want to get 5.1 surround sound you have to connect the sound bar directly to the source. However Sonos doesn't support DTS which is the audio on pretty much every Blu-Ray. Meaning you cannot get 5.1 surround sound from your Blu-ray player. Also even if it did support DTS my Blu-ray player does not have an optical out output and so it wouldn't work for that reason as well.

In summary, if you're paying this much money for a great set of speakers and 5.1 surround sound, then it better darn well output 5.1 surround sound. My guess is that people just don't know the difference and don't know what they are missing out on. I absolutely love Sonos for multiple room audio and have always raved about it to friends but I have to say I am really disappointed in the Playbar.

    Horrible product and support

    Pros

      Cons

      • Doesn't last past warranty
      • Poor Sound Quality
      • Terrible customer service

      Best Uses

        Had the playbar for 14 months when the sound started cutting out. Called tech support and tried to troubleshoot the problem. They told me to try a few things and they would call back in a few days. Sonos never called back. I eventually called back to troubleshoot some more. This went on for two months. After never coming to a resolution or return phone calls, I was told my product was bad. Only a few months out of warranty and I'm out of luck. I was told a manager would call me right back and that was 1 month ago. Not only do they have expensive unreliable products, but even worse, their customer service is the worst I've ever dealt with. If you decide to purchase a Sonos product, I hope you never need their customer support.

          Got Play 1 and Playbar as a birthday and Christmas gift and fell in love immediately. Set up was the easiest set up I've ever done for any type of technology I've used. That includes adding the music services and integrating the Playbar (after Play 1 was already set up). Sound is amazing. I used to have a 5.1 system (for about 20 years) but the speakers and wires just ended up getting in the way at our new place. I use Android but my girlfriend has an iPhone so I used that for Trueplay. Watching Star Wars now as we speak and the sound is great. I wish they would allow the free version for Spotify but really no biggie considering I have a Google Music subscription. Speakers look modern and slick. I like that you can also adjust the volume on them in the event the phone/tablet aren't nearby. I also like how the app syncs between devices. If your phone is downstairs and you're in another room with a tablet, you can basically continue where you left off from your phone.

          Playbar, Sub, Play 3 & Play 1 w/ Boost

          • Multiple Rooms / Whole House
          • Smaller Rooms

          The whole system is amazing. You cannot beat the ease of set up with the sound quality. I have the Playbar, sub and two Play 3 units as my surround system for my main entertainment room. The system links together seamlessly and provides high end movie theater sound quality as well as pure music listening bliss for audio heads. Only complaint would be the low quality optical cable supplied with the Playbar, but that is an easy upgrade and expected expense out of the box. You should get the Boost if you have multiple Sonos units in your home. Makes its own network and keeps everything running smooth and without loss of bandwidth for streaming other devices. The Play 1 is great for smaller rooms. I use mine in the bathroom so I can enjoy music while getting ready for work. It is moisture resistant and I have had zero issues in and I have had no issues. Best purchase I have made for sound systems. Love going from room to room cleaning and switching between speakers on the app for the room I'm in. For all it delivers this was easily the easiest set up for any sound system I have ever done. You will not regret the purchase of you like high quality sound, convenience and ease of use and set up. Highly recommend Playbar, sub, Play 3, Play 1 and the Boost. I personally have not found a use for the Play 5 but the sound is great and will probably purchase in the future.

            I've been in this home 5 years now and never hooked up my old surround system...never took time to run wires.
            bought this (5.1 with sub and rears) system and couldn't be happier. Others have said not the best sounding? maybe not, but even my kid says it sounds great! night sound is perfect, you can still hear all the words clearly without shaking the walls every time the volume levels change- when you want home theater, it put's you right there!
            Can't wait to expand the system. I was thinking of putting the old stereo in the garage, but would rather get a play5 as it's way easy to load music with a smart phone

              I purchased the SONOS sub at the same time as the Playbar. I have downsized from a large THX system and was skeptical at first about the sound quality, but this set up does an awesome job. No it is not as nice as my former setup BUT it's not a massive wall of equipment with 7 speakers either. I have no regrets what so ever in this decision, the SONOS design is incredible, sound quality is great and it's super simple to set up. One thing to keep in mind is how this system operates, it runs by creating a wifi network, to create this network I highly recommend that you get the SONOS BOOST. This will allow you to create a separate network just for your SONOS setup. It's the only way to go in my opinion and it makes configuring the system a breeze, just plug the Boost into your current router and plug in the power cord. When you run the controller app it recognizes the Boost and guides you thru the rest of the networking configuration. Lastly, one of the main reason I went with SONOS is the ability to add on, if down the road I want to go to a 5.1 surround sound, I can by adding two Play1s, or Play3s to the network.

              Poor Quality Audio for Music

              Best Uses

                I strictly use this speak for audio so I am reviewing it as such. I have not connected it to a TV so I can not tell you how well it performs there.

                The bass is very weak. The speaker starts to distort just past the midpoint in volume. It may play oldies just fine, I don't have any. But if you play anything modern, highly polished the speaker's audio is inferior. I wish I could add audio recorded from the speaker as a sample. Caribou, Four Tet, and other electronic artist are unplayable past the midway on the volume.

                Fantastic Sound System for TV and Music

                • Add On For Surround Sound
                • Attractive Design
                • Easily Paired With Sub

                This system is absolutely fantastic. I love the sound quality, the simple setup, the ease of pairing with a SUB and/or other speakers for great bass and surround sound, and simple switch from TV to music and back. Only minor downsides are that the optical cord that comes with it is very low quality. My cat chewed through the original fairly quickly and I ordered a much nicer/thicker cord. Other downside is that there is a brief one or two second delay in the sound when you turn on the tv or after a pause/play of a movie or show. Cons for this do not even come close to outweighing the pros, but should be noted.
