          Comments about Sonos PLAYBAR Wireless Soundbar:

          The sound bar is used as part of a home theater set up. While the stand alone sound is very good, with the addition of a Sonos Sub and 2 Play 3 units, gives the full surround sound feel.
          As with all Sonos gear set up is incredibly easy. Sonos also give excellent support and frequently add new features through firmware updates.
          However all the benefits don't come cheap, as Sonos are not known for bargain prices!

            Since I bought Sonos Playbar, we cannot stop watching TV and listen to the music. The sound is very good and it changes your whole sound experience!It has main advantages: great sounds, works perfect, easy to install and control.As for the disadvantages, so I may say that the lack of HDMI access is a disadvantage, but you can manage very good without it.I am so impressed with Sonos Playbar.

              Comments about Sonos PLAYBAR Wireless Soundbar:

              Setup is 30 seconds and the sound is very good. The only negative is your TV must support optical out with 5.1 which most do not. You can always purchase a converter or it will default to simulated surround from stereo output. It might not be the greatest surround sound system but if I wanted that I wouldn't have bought a soundbar. The reason to get a soundbar is that you get a clean look without wires and speakers everywhere. This accomplishes that and it sounds great for music or movies. The sonos experience with the app is great and I will be buying the subwoofer next!

              Comments about Sonos PLAYBAR Wireless Soundbar:

              One of the smallest soundbars available that actually provides good tones from TV. Requires wireless connection to set up. Does not operate directly "out of the box". More difficult to set up if no ethernet connection by TV.
              Once connected to TV you cannot adjust treble and bass.
