Sonos, who revolutionised music listening with their smart wireless hi-fi systems, have done it again with the Playbar, a product that excels by being incredibly simple, unobtrusive, great sounding and affordable.
Soundbars – one-box speaker systems designed to sit below a television – have usually involved fairly serious compromise when it comes to sound quality. The Playbar however has elevated the concept to a new height by virtue of clever design and high quality components.
Better still, it has all the smarts of other Sonos systems so it connects easily, streams music from wireless sources seamlessly and can be expanded with other Sonos gear to create a full 5.1 audio experience or be part of a whole-home audio system.
- Playbar complements your TV with richly textured Hi Fi sound
- Wirelessly streams all the music on earth
- Simple to set up, control and expand. Requires just two cords: one power cord, one optical cord (both included)
- Syncs with other Sonos speakers wirelessly
- Understands and speaks most IR remote’s language and can be controlled by free apps for your Android®, iPhone® or iPad®
- Plays all sources plugged in to your HDTV: Pay-TV boxes, Blu-Ray players, and video game consoles & more
With a total of 9 speakers, each with its own class-D digital amplifier, the sound quality is phenomenal. Pair it with the Sonos Sub and you’ve got a very impressive music and movie setup that’s minimal in design but big on sound and affordability.
The Sonos Playbar is just $999, and is available now. We encourage you to come in and hear it for yourself!
