    Sonos PLAYBAR reviews

    PLAYBAR Wireless Soundbar is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 61.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos delivers! 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonos Playbar 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best customer service in the business Not only is this a fantastic soundbar but the Sonos customer service is out of this world. I initially had some issues getting my Sonos 5.1 setup working together correctly but a phone call to Sonos walked me through the entire process and got everything in order. They were really friendly and super easy to follow. As far as the sound quality goes it's not going to beat a high end music system with full range speakers but it takes up less space and draws less attention to itself. It still beats anything from Bose and all the other soundbars I've used in the past. The Sonos controller app is what really what puts the icing on the cake for this system, easy to use and puts your entire music library at your fingertips.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enhances basic living room, but pricey Great sound quality, super easy to set up as all Sonos units are. Just using it in our upstairs living room. A bit pricey but the output is amazing but you really need the Sub, without the Sub your missing a lot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product I had been interested in Sonos products for years before I recently went all in with purchases of the playbar, sub, and play 1's for surround. After a couple days of using that system, I added a pair of new Play 5's for my bedroom. Sound quality is very good for all units. Setup is easy. If you're interested in surround sound though you need to be aware of some limitations. First, your TV has to support Dolby 5.1 passthrough. Second, the playbar does not support DTS so you will need a bluray player capable of converting DTS to dd5.1 for bluray's recorded in DTS. Otherwise you will not get true surround sound. If these limitations are acceptable, and wireless surround is a top priority, then I highly recommend Sonos playbar with a pair of surrounds (and the sub!). Sonos products are top shelf, right down to the packaging.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, easy setup 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Sonos Really love the Sonos products. Really beautiful sound. I bought the whole 5.1 setup for living room... and have two more play:1s in my bedroom. Love it all. And the app works so cool with it all. And I can set the two play:1s in the rear of living room to be stronger or more ambient depending if in TV mode or music mode. And app can control volume from phone... or the TV remote synced perfectly for volume control... or any one of the speakers in the group can control volume with a touch. Such a simplistic design... love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds Great I use this in our den with a 47 tv. I had no room to put the bar below the TV but was able to put it on a bookshelf about 1 foot above sounds great. Also can stream music from my ipad, ipod and android using for example Pandora. i will add additional Sonos speakers throughout my home.
