I do love the Playbar. It certainly does enhance the sound of a flatscreen TV. It creates rich sounds. But I don't think it is worth £600 alone. The sounds are good but they're not incredible.
Where this really shines is when you pair it with two Play:1 speakers to make surround sound. The playbar really becomes awesome then as it sends the sounds off in all the right directions and, with the surrounds, has great depth. If you have the surrounds, I don't think you need the sub, as together they create a lot of bass. The real benefits of using Sonos for your surround sound is that it's wireless so you don't need to run cables everywhere, and you can also use it to play music from the Sonos app, coordinating it with your wider system if you have one.
You should also be aware that it can only receive Dolby Digital 5.1 signals: not DTS. Sonos also recommends that youplug the optical cable directly to your TV, instead of to other peripheral devices such as consoles, Blu-Ray players etc. The problem with this is that you need a TV which can pass Dolby Digital 5.1 signals from HDMI to optical cable. There are a lot of TVs, particularly Samsung TVs, that don't do this. To address this, I needed to buy an optical audio switcher so I could have my console and blu-ray player and TV connected to the Sonos - using a switch to change the audio input.
To summarise: it's a good speaker when on it's own, but there are cheaper standalone soundbars out there that do the same job. It is however spectacular when it's paired with satellites for surround sound, and when you have other Sonos speakers around the house with which it can coordinate. Check your TV can pass DD5.1 from HDMI to optical, or buy an optical switch.
The set up takes next to no time and is straight forward. Ideally you want an iPad but it's not essential for when you are running the tuning part of the app. Even without a separate sub (which I subsequently purchased - no pun intended) the system really does give it some welly and will give any sound bar a run for it's money.
My one gripe with the app (and this in no way reflects on the system itself) is that you can't play media from Dropbox. Given Dropbox is one of the biggest cloud storage services available this seems absolutely ludicrous. This is a pain when you want to be able to stream a baby sensory song to your child to help them sleep or perhaps unreleased material from an artists both of which are the case with myself.
As mentioned this is an app issue and not a hardware reflection and I would still recommend the product if you have the budget and have to work within the constraints of not having cables.
Only thing, it was bigger than I expected but hey that's not always a bad thing ;-)
