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.

I am cracking on a bit but still obsessed with sound. Sonos delivers the clearest sound I have ever heard. But the clincher is in its simplicity, it does what it say on the tin and works fantastically.

I find the playbar works great for music and basic TV watching but if you are looking for a home cinema kit this system of the playbar sub and 2 x play 3 (rear surrounds) falls short and please note cannot handle DTS sound only 5.1
Not worth the money in my opinion.....

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.

Bottom line up front: Buy a different sound bar if you want to watch movies.

Just bought a PLAYBAR, and ordered SUB and two PLAY1 as I love my PLAY 5.

First Blu-ray I tried played the intro music (Dolby) but as soon as the film (DTS) started NOTHING! Bit of reading and now hugely disappointed... especially given the premium price!

You can't use it with your TV/Blu-Ray as you can't decide whether a film is encoded in Dolby or DTS.

On the basis that support tickets have been outstanding with SONOS for months and is still not being considered, I'm going to return it. I've just cancelled my order for SUB and PLAY 1s.

Pity given my first introduction to you was so positive. :-(

We already had Sonos speakers so bought this Playbar so it all works together. As expected it has fantastic sound and it is wonderful to be able to hear voices properly without having to have the volume really loud. It is just a wonderful speaker, not much else, although it does offer a night mode where you can enhance the speech and compresses the loud music.

I think it is let down by the fact it has no HDMI slots and it took me ages to decide to buy it, because of this reason. It connects to the TV via an opticul input. The HDMI problem will be solved when we invest in a new TV I suppose. The sound on a TV will never compare to this though. So overall very happy with our purchase.
