Sonos Announces the PLAYBASE Speaker Base for TV Audio

0Share

Wireless audio pioneer Sonos has unveiled its PLAYBASE speaker base, which brings high-quality sound to your TV. The base supports TVs weighing up to 77 lb and features six midrange drivers, three tweeters, and a woofer, each of which is powered by individual class-D digital amplifiers. Since it connects directly to your TV (in a snap, thanks to the included optical cable), it plays whatever audio would ordinarily come out of the television’s built-in speakers, whether it’s sourced from a Blu-ray player, cable box, streaming stick, or game system.

Its Wi-Fi connection enables wireless streaming from a variety of music sources, including Apple Music and Spotify, all controlled by your smartphone’s free Sonos app. And if you already have Sonos products in your home, you can add the PLAYBASE to your network, enabling you to play the same audio everywhere or choose what to play, room by room. Add the Sonos SUB and a pair of PLAY:1 units for a surround-sound experience, without any speaker wires to connect. Other features of note include sound enhancements like Speech Enhancement and Night Sound, and Trueplay setup, which analyzes your room’s layout and adjusts the speakers’ sound accordingly. The PLAYBASE will be available in white and black, and is expected to ship in early April.
