PLAYBASE TV Placement Guidelines

PLAYBASE TV Placement Guidelines

Single Foot Stands

Make sure your TV stand rests completely on your PLAYBASE with no overhang. Securely supports any screen up to 35 kg.

What works

Single foot and continuous frames.

What doesn't

Stands with unstable legs.

Split Foot Stands

PLAYBASE fits conveniently between the legs of most TVs stands with separate feet.

What works

Feet must be at least 2.3” (58mm) tall to allow for PLAYBASE clearance.

What doesn't

Legs that are either too close together or too low to provide full clearance.


Work Arounds & Watch Outs

Consider a TV stand with shelves. Or place inside a cabinet.

For best acoustics, set your PLAYBASE toward the front with 2” of clearance on each side.

Watch Outs

Don’t place objects lighter than 2.3 kg on top of your PLAYBASE. The sound may send them flying.

What’s on your TV is only as good as what your TV is on.

See why

Everything sounds better on PLAYBASE.

Movies, sports, TV shows, gaming – the slim, low profile PLAYBASE adds dynamic, pulse-pounding sound to whatever’s playing when your TV’s on. And streams your favourite music when it’s off.

An off-the-wall approach to better TV sound.

Typical soundbars work best when wall-mounted directly below a TV. Truth is, most TVs end up on stands and furniture – exactly what PLAYBASE was created for. Its low profile design practically disappears beneath your TV, yet it fills your entire viewing room with epic home cinema audio.

Two cords. That's it.

One power cord. And one optical cord for your TV. You don't even have to read the manual; the Sonos app guides you through every step of set up.

Send TV sound all around.

PLAYBASE makes movies, sports, games, and music come alive... in one room. Add more Sonos speakers and you can listen to what's playing on your TV in any room.

Movies and music to the power of 10.

Ten amplified internal drivers–six mid-range, three tweeters, and one woofer–replace the limited output of your TV's built-in speakers with deeper booms, crystal clear whispers, and huge waves of sound.

One app. Complete music control.

Search instantly through all your music services to find the songs you love, send them to different rooms, and adjust the volume and other settings for each room.

Check out the app

Apple Music, Spotify, and over 30 other services available.

Sonos plays it all – popular streaming services, free internet radio, podcasts, audiobooks, your go-to collection of downloads – whatever you love to listen to.

Custom tune your PLAYBASE.

With Trueplay you can set your home theatre speakers up however you want – and know they’re going to sound amazing.

How Trueplay works

Additional Features

Speech enhancement setting.

Keeps dialogue volume consistent while reducing the intensity of loud sound effects. So you can clearly understand even the faintest whisper.

Night sound setting.

Don’t want to disturb the rest of the house? Turn on Night Sound. At lower volumes, quiet sounds get a slight boost while loud ones are automatically reduced.

Plays everything.

Cable boxes. Gaming consoles. Satellite boxes. Blu-ray players. If it’s connected to your TV, PLAYBASE will play it.

Widescreen sound. No wall-mount required.

PLAYBASE securely supports TVs up to 35 kg. Which covers just about any TV that comes with its own stand.


Set up over Wifi.

Plug in. Connect. Stream without interruptions or interference.

Start in any room. Add on.

Play different songs in different rooms. Or the same song everywhere.

Control with one app.

Pick a room. Pick a song. Hit play.

Keeps getting better.

Software updates mean the product you buy today will be even better tomorrow.

    Comments about SONOS PLAYBASE:

    Vastly superior to any other sound bar or the likes on the market. Shame I can't afford the base as this would really make a difference. Also play back of music is excellent in terms of sound. Shame I cannot also hook into hifi.

      Comments about SONOS PLAYBASE:

      Very impressed with both the sound and the simplicity of the setup.
      Lots of music apps already work with it.

      Only downside is changing the volume can be a little laggy and there is no visual volume indicator (although, that may just be my TV setup).

        Purchased for sound from my TV and for listening to music. Easy to set up and to stream music. Downside was the the sound quality was not as good as expected. So much so that I have returned the product for a refund.

        • Multi-Room Audio

        Comments about SONOS PLAYBASE:

        Love the sound, it's enhanced my to audio so much, streaming music also sounds great, although I am not a fan of the iOS app. I would like to be able to stream music direct from my phone in Apple Music via airplay. With AirPlay 2 launching in September, I would like to see this feature added. This feature is pretty much what is stopping me from buying more speakers to go around the rest of my house. Add Airplay 2 and I can see my buying way more Sonos speakers in the future, as it would then be the perfect product.
