    BEST product ever!

    Posted .

    I had a Bose sound system & when it was time to replace the tv I wanted to improve the sound quality in the room. Now in the the store this sound bar can blow away the competition- it is in a huge store. At home it can be a tad loud to get the quality sound in a small room. But, this is by far a better quality product than Bose.

    Sonos playbar deserves a 10 out of 10. Have it paired with a sub. I’m very happy with my purchase

    Excellent Sound. Beginning of Sonos addiction

    Apps, Music, Set up

    Provides great room-filling sound. Tried it out in store and at a friends house who has the complete 5.1 set up. Compared side-by-side with Bose 300 soundbar and this had more crisp sound in my opinion. Plus the Sonos app integrates other Sonos speakers well. Will slowly start purchasing additional speakers/sub to complete the system. -Able to control with Alexa -Syncs with Spotify and other music services -Easy setup - Can sit on table or mount to wall Cons: No physical remote, but works with iOS and Android with Sonos app, also with Alexa Mount needs to be purchased separately Wires are slightly visible below when mounted to wall given location/angle the wires exit the system. Overall, highly recommend. Will probably be adding subwoofer and Play1 speakers next

    The Playbar still rocks after almost 7 years. I highly recommend Sonos products. I keep the volume at 80 percent and it hasn’t missed a beat. The design is still relevant today and anyone that has a listen is always impressed.

    Pretty good soundbar, a bit pricey for the quality to be completely honest. But like that it connects to my two Sonos Ones just wish they worked a bit better together to get full surround sound feel.

    Set up, Sound quality

    I shopped around for many sound bars the past few months (mid 2016). I bought a couple but returned them for various reasons, quality, features, etc. My Brother has recessed Sonos speakers all throughout his house and he swears by it…So I finally decided to listen to him and pay a little extra money for the Sonos soundbar. (No amp needed so that saves you some money) I wish and listen to them sooner because everything about it is five stars. The quality is second to none, the features are incredible, compatibility with different services and many more are added daily... The set up process is so easy a 10-year-old could do it. Sonos is how Apple is with iPhones, they are the best in wireless Home audio. I have the Sonos soundbar, sub as well as 2 Sonos play 1 speakers. This delivers top of the line wireless uncompressed audio, it's the best you can get. If you only get the play bar and the sub, most people would be perfectly happy with that setup.

    I bought the Playbar because I was so impressed by the sound from my Play3. The Playbar sounds amazing and I love that Sonos' has programmed the Playbar to auto switch from music to TV when a signal is detected. I bought an optical switch so I can guarantee that a 5.1 signal is being passed to the Playbar from all my connected devices. Can't wait to add a Sonos sub.

    Now that I have acquired the Sub, Soundbar, and Sonos speakers, every time I watch a movie it feels like I at an Imax theater. The sound of music is outstanding and I highly recommend Sonos products for great quality and sound.

    The Sonos Playbar is a compact speaker system that connects to your TV via optical cable and has the ability to play whatever source the TV is playing, you can also stream music from your smart device or direct from the internet using the Sonos Controller App and your WiFi. Pair the Playbar with 2 Sonos Play 1's and a Sonos Sub to create a full 5.1 Wireless Surround Sound System that will amaze. Sound quality is what you would expect from a system in this price range, and you don't need a engineering degree to set it up.

    I remodeled my living room by the fireplace and created a Special shelf just for this Sonos sound bar under the TV. It sounds amazing and is so easy to use. Some things do actually get better as time goes by.

    Ease of use, Set up, Sound quality

    We added the sounds bar in our TV room after enjoying two Sonos 1 speakers in our living room. The physical installation (with the optional mounting hardware) was straightforward, and the setup as simple as all the Sonos gear. The only odd thing is that with the unit mounted above our TV, the wire connecting to the TV (which can't be bent) protrudes above the bar. And of course now there is the risk of "gee, the sound is great, but with two more Sonos speaker we could have surround sound..."

    Sound quality

    Originally I purchased this soundbar alone to upgrade from the speakers on my lg oled tv. The soundbar is good on its own but was lacking some serious punch (bass) this led me to purchasing the Sonos sub a few days later. Once this was paired with the soundbar the difference was night and day. I’ll also add that a couple days after receiving the sub I also purchased a pair of sonos ones and must say it’s pretty sweet. All in I know it’s an expensive system but there is a reason why it costs so much. Sure the playbar is relatively old technology with only optical audio output, WiFi, and Ethernet being the only options but you’ll never notice once it’s set up. Also because it’s older I can’t help but think that the quality and long term longevity of these components will far outlast there competitors. All this being said I say buy it but Only with the expectation that it’s a soundbar without the sub and that you’ll have to purchase another $700 speaker to make more bass.

    Best Soundbar out there

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Apps, Set up, Sound quality

    Review for sounbar only, but with the sub is great also. PROS: (outweigh cons) -No ethernet cable needed for setup. -Wifi connection to phone app is very convenient, but the navigation isnt too simple. -Night mode, and voice mode for TV. -Equalizer adjustment of treble/bass -Has big bass without need for the separate sub, especially if in a small room -A+ for highs and midrange frequencies. A- for lows. CONS: -No separate remote for volume control. Didnt work w/ my 2015 LG magic remote, but does with xfinity remote. -No HDMI connection, but really not needed for just 5.1 sound. BUT what happens if optical input breaks? get warranty.. -No Blutooth.. BUT according to manual, its not needed. Theres a way to connect phone directly to soundbar without blutooth or even an internet connection. -Easier to setup and use, and better sounding than the Bose 300. -Soundbar is too tall, so i had to tilt back sideways so it wont block my TV screen(but no difference in sound quality!) -Not visually appealing like the Bose 300, but still puts out! Side notes: The SUB setup procedure didnt work through phone app, only through my pc. Judging only on sound quality, I had the bose300 and sony st9, and sonos wins it.

    Originally I purchased a samsung Harmn Kardon Q70r and after about 1 week I returned it due to the sound quality. I did my research on Bose and Sonos and after researching and reading reviews etc, Sonos has beat everyone out for my taste and price point. Picked it up at my local Best Buy store and set it up within 1 hr including wifi and sound tuning etc. I purchased both the playbar and ths sub. Immediately when I lifted the playbar out of the box it felt SOLID and good, and the same with the Sub. They were both absolutely BEAUTIFUL and felt and looked like top quality and upper eschelon of soundbars. After setting it up and watching 5 minutes of a movie I was impressed. The sound was excellent and crystal clear and the Sub had deep , rich bass which I was looking for. I then decided to play Victory Lap by Nipsey Hussle and was BLOWN away and thats when I knew I made a solid purchase. There is no distortion, or rattle or any other sounds besides deep, rich, and clear bass and music. I love this product and recommend to anyone looking for a new soundbar to complement their TV. I will say the price was a bit steep, but I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for. Glad I purchased this and to anyone in the market looking to buy this product, don’t hesitate!

    Apps, Set up

    They speakers are very expensive for what you get. I was able to buy an open box for about $530 in stead of the $700. The main reason to buy the play bar is the convenience of being to addd to it and build a custom set up. i would definitely recommend these speakers to anyone but make sure you buy the subwoofer along with this. If you have one of those low profile tvs that sit really close to the tv stand then i would not recommend these speakers things they are very think in height. They will definitely look better it wall mounted. The app is smooth but not very intuitive for adjusting the treble or base on the sub. You hind of have to dig through it a little. I am giving this 4 stars because it does not have bluetooth .One other issues is that you might need to connect it to your router to set it up.
