PLAYBAR | The soundbar for music lovers

HDTVs offer an amazing picture but often lack the powerful, realistic sounds that movie, music, and gaming enthusiasts enjoy. The Sonos PLAYBAR wireless soundbar delivers sophisticated home theater acoustics and wirelessly streams all the music on earth through one streamlined, easy-to-use soundbar. Plus, PLAYBAR can wirelessly stream all of your music.

The PLAYBAR requires just two cords: one power cord, and one optical cord (both included). It syncs with other Sonos speakers wirelessly and understands and speaks most IR remote's language--or control it using free apps for your Android, iPhone or iPad. PLAYBAR plays all sources plugged in to your HDTV, including cable/SAT boxes, Blu-ray players, and video game consoles. If it's connected to your HDTV, PLAYBAR will play it.

Combine a PLAYBAR with a SUB and a pair of rear speakers connected to a BRIDGE or BOOST (each sold separately), and you've got immersive 5.1 sound. And with it? The power to play anything and make it sound amazing.

What is Sonos?


Sonos Sounbar

How it works

Sonos is a system of HiFi wireless speakers and audio components. It unites your digital music collection in one app that you control from any device. Play what you want in every room over a dedicated wireless network. Sonos speakers work together to ensure rock-solid wireless performance, with no skips, delays, or drops.

Go wireless

Perfect sync

Build a house of sound, one room at a time. Play different music in any room or the same song everywhere, in perfect sync. Sonos speakers can talk to each other to stay in perfect sync--even on WiFi.

Powerful mesh network

Sonos offers an exceptionally powerful dedicated wireless network for music, and it gets stronger every time you add a speaker.

Play your iTunes library, listen to your online music services, and get access to thousands of free radio stations worldwide.

Control every room, from any device

Powerful app with free updates

Different music sources from one app combined with complete multi-room capabilities so you can listen to your entire world of music in every room of your home. Compatible with Android, iPad, iPhone, Mac and PC devices. Sonos offers free software updates regularly to make your system feel brand new, even if you bought your speakers five years ago.


Create your ideal home theater system

Rock solid wireless

BRIDGE or BOOST lets you wirelessly connect your PLAYBAR to a SUB and PLAY:1 or PLAY:3 rear speakers for an immersive 5.1 surround sound experience that's simple to set up and control.

The dedicated Sonos network is required for expanding your home theater because it ensures incredibly low latency between PLAYBAR and SUB or rear speakers. With BRIDGE and BOOST, you don't experience any lip-sync delays when you're watching your favorite TV shows or movies.

Let me start by saying I'm a big fan of Sonos, with several rooms in my house already equipped with Zoneplayers, as well as a Play:5. So, when I recently bought a new TV, adding a Playbar seemed like the logical thing to do to upgrade from the in-built speakers.
So, for me, I'm not overly interested in the Playbar's qualities as a wireless music player. After all, this is a soundbar, fitted under my TV, specifically designed to give a home cinema experience according to Sonos - just take a look at all their current advertising, encouraging you to buy a couple of Play:1s to hook up with it for that 5.1 experience. The problem is, the Playbar doesn't deliver on its promise.
How do Sonos advise you to connect the Playbar to your system? Well, the only method they recommend (or will support if you have an issue) is that you take an optical output from your TV. Not from an amp, BluRay player or cable TV box, just from your TV. The problem is, if you feed your TV with an HDMI signal, then you will struggle to find any TV that will pass a 5.1 signal through its optical port - you will only get stereo. This means you won't get 5.1 from your Playbar and you won't get a surround channel to any Play:1s you've bought and connected. (You will get a pretty dire pseudo-5.1 that the Playbar will create from the stereo source).
OK, let's go the unsupported route and give the Playbar a 5.1 feed direct from your source. The problem here is that the Playbar will only play Dolby Digital 5.1, not DTS. Go and have a look at your current BluRay collection and see how many have a DD soundtrack - about 15% if you're lucky. All you will get from your Playbar is silence.
If you want a soundbar which accepts both DD and DTS 5.

Having moved house, I've been forced to retire my separate 5.1 Home Cinema amp and speakers from the living room. The speakers in my television alone (a recent Samsung) were a huge step down, so I sought to remedy with the Sonos. The amp was a fairly recent purchase itself and more expensive than this, so I had low expectations that the Sonos would be a worthy replacement, but I am pleasantly surprised by how close it is. I've been a happy Sonos user elsewhere in the house for a while, but was always a bit sceptical of the Soundbar.

I'd recommend checking your television carefully first. You must have an optical audio out that will output (and pass-through) Dolby Digital unmolested. Equally, you need to be able to disable the speakers in the television, and have a compliant remote. My Samsung ES7000 from 2013 does this, but by luck rather than judgement and many televisions may fall-short. In that case, buy a Yamaha Projector instead with HDMI. Many of the (probably deservedly) poor reviews come from those connecting the Playbar directly to disc players or set-top boxes, or connecting to TVs that output only stereo.

If you have a compliant television though, this really is good. A breeze to set-up, trivial to use once it is, and seems to do well with streamed material (Amazon Prime / Netflix) which tend to be Dolby Digital encoded. It sounds excellent, much closer to the separate system than I expected, and worlds better than the televisions own speakers.

I was worried by the lack of DTS, but the omission is explained by Sonos as no TVs pass-through DTS currently, making it a pointless feature if you connect the Playbar correctly. No streaming services are using DTS, and I find I rarely use discs these days anyway.

had no real intention of buying this and had popped into my local AV shop to buy another Play 5 system, walking out with this only after a very good sales pitch and demo.

First impressions while unpacking and getting to actually handle it were very positive. In typical Sonos style it's built to a very high standard and you do feel you have spend your money on something very impressive and good quality.

Installing was straight forward, but this is my third Sonos device so I am used to using their products. First time users should not have too many hair pulling moments and that's the beauty of Sonos kit.

Once installed you have access to all the usual Sonos features (internet radio, Napster Spotify, Last FM, Deezer etc) and anything you've got on your home network.

The major issue is that the only way to connect the Playbar to your TV is via an optical cable connection. My 'smart' TV is fairly new and happened to have this but I suspect most TV sets will not. If your TV does not have an optical out connection this is not a complete deal breaker as you can connect to another source with optical (SKY HD or Virgin Box for example) but you would be restricted to listening through that device and to watch a Bluray for example you would have to disconnect from your Sky box and connect the cable into the back of the BD player....Not ideal.

There are two Ethernet ports and also built in wireless and the soundbar can be controlled by the Sonos Android or iOS app. Usefully it can also be made to respond to your TV or or Sky remote with a bit of messing around.

The sound is a major improvement on my LG TV and this is the major reason I bought it, but in my opinion this alone will not replace a dedicated 5.1 or 7.1 AV Speaker system.
