        Comments about Sonos PLAYBAR Wireless Soundbar:

        We have a fairly extensive Sonos installation in our home. The Playbar was purchased to work with a new 4K TV that has yet to be delivered. However, I connected it to an existing 50in HD set.Not only do we enjoy another location within the Sonos system, the Playbar yields really excellent sound from TV and movies. In fact, it is so good that I have stopped using my ReSound streamer that wirelessly feeds sound straight to my hearing aids.I cannot recommend Sonos equipment enough! It's a superb system which we enjoy every day. I maintain my library of ripped CDs on a pair of mirrored NAS boxes.BTW, I have ordered the additional Sonos units to work with the Playbar so we have surround sound.

          Use in my TV room with a 55" LG TV, for both TV sound and also playing music. Don't have the sub yet but probably will get it. Sound is crisp and clean - obviously not a full stereo system - but very decent for a smallish package.Extremely easy to set up with both TV and music (iTunes and Spotify) from iphone and ipad.

                I ordered this for my mom who needed a sound bar (poor speaker on their 50" Samsung LCD)and a "speaker to play music". She does not have any other Sonos products, but she loves it. Easy to control from her iPad, great sound for music, and now my dad can hear the tennis balls bouncing when he watches the US Open.

                  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!

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.

                      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!

                      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.
