        Comments about SONOS PLAYBAR:

        In Sonos I have purchased a quality sound sytstem that will allow me to expand speakers to take full advantage of a quality sound, everywhere. I have started with the Sonos Playbar that gives me a quality sound for my TV. This also doubles up for the sound system for Apple Music when entertaining. I intend to add speakers for the kitchen and my office and this will also be used for Theatre speakers when added to the Sub system, which is the next purchase! Yes I've planned future usage.
        Quality sound systems are an investment and since there is no discounting in the High Street, I appreciate saving towards purchasing a Sonos as you know that the speakers will last whilst others will suddenly fail without warning.

                This was product was advocated by Hughes TV as providing better sound for my Samsung top of the range 8000 series.
                After connection it would not operate without leaving a message on the tv screen every time the sound level was adjusted.
                It was so frustrating it was sent back for a refund but on disconnecting from the tv I had now no sound from the tv speakers, it is locked in a 'connected to external speaker' setting.
                I have bought a Canton 75 to resolve the problem but my tv is still corrupted.
                Hughes, Samsung and Sonos are not interested in putting it right.
                Looking on the internet this is a common problem, please be aware!

                The playbar fills up our livingroom with great sound, and works well with the TV. But with some movie formats that have DTS encoded sound the surround sound doesn't work properly. It seems that DTS will be the format going forward with blu-rays.

                  I have started my Sonos experience with the Playbar and the versatility of this product does not disappoint. It sits in my kitchen/family room and fulfils our needs for a great sounding television sound system, weekend morning radio to a wireless music system when entertaining. The only negatives...
                  The price of the SUB and the poor versatility of the APP... My next addition will be a play3 but the app frustrates me as it does not support YouTube and does not have the sort capabilities of iTunes.
                  I would love to sort my albums by artist and not album name, I would love to play an album without adding to a queue and them having to replace or delete the queue when I want to play another.
                  Could do better....

I also play music through it via the SONOS app and the sound is so crisp and clear. I don't hesitate to recommend this product and I've since bought a Play3 for our kitchen.

                      Easy to set up. Would like to have an override button so that it doesn't auto switch to tv when tv turned on. Works well with tv remote although sometimes tv volume comes on as well causing an echo.
                      My room average size and the sound from the Sonos sound bar is first class but if I turn down the volume even with loudness setting on can be a little tinny when compared to the Sonos one in the next room

                            I use it for my TV, IPhone, and iPad. The best part is that I can share it with anyone who visits me with a smart phone. They can play their own music if they do not like mine. They are impressed with how easy it is to use and the ease of set up. My girlfriend loves it and she is gadget challenged. She loved playing her own music list on her phone.

                              Used for TV and streaming Spotify. Very Happy with product. Combined with 2 Play 3's the entire ground floor is filled with crisp, clear powerful sounds. Only wish I could afford sub woofer to complete the experience.

                              Very useful addition to the TV and great for playing music from phone or PC.
                              Very versatile system that can be added to a creating a complete surround sound, which can then be used to play different music in the separate rooms

                                      This sound bar seems expensive but if you want quality better than bose its worth every penny I am saving up to buy the sub and 2 play 3's for the ultimate surround system.

                                        I use the soundbar to Watch TV through and also to listen to music through and it is absolutely brilliant. The sound quality is excellent even without a sub connected. It is so simple to set up and makes a massive difference when used instead of the standard TV speakers.

                                            Questions?

                                            1. Do I need a BOOST?

                                              Use a BOOST if you’re worried about your home WiFi performance.

                                              Connecting a Sonos unit to your router with an Ethernet cable automatically creates a dedicated Sonos wireless network. Any player or a BOOST can make this hard-wired connection. A dedicated Sonos network is ideal when your WiFi isn’t reliable in your home.

                                            2. Where does the music come from?

                                              The music on Sonos comes from your favourite music streaming services, your personal music library and Internet radio stations from around the world. Access all your music within the Main Menu of the Sonos App.

                                            3. Do you make an outdoor speaker?

                                              No, but they're all light and portable. As long as there's an outlet, you've got Sonos. The speaker units that we sell, the PLAY:1, PLAY:3 and PLAY:5, are not weather-rated. They can certainly be moved outside, but they are not designed to live outside unless they are in a covered space. If you are looking for a permanent outdoor zone of music, you can use our CONNECT:AMP unit with traditional weather-rated speakers.

                                            4. Will Sonos work with my existing equipment?

                                              Already have a Stereo? Use the CONNECT.

                                              The CONNECT is designed specifically to integrate with an external amplifier/receiver, and bring Sonos functionality to a third party system. Once you have a CONNECT hooked up to your stereo system, you can stream digital music and control the music selection and volume from the Sonos app.

                                              Have a pair of speakers? The CONNECT:AMP is all you need.

                                              If you have existing wired speakers that are not currently driven by amplifier, you can use a CONNECT:AMP to bring Sonos functionality to your speakers. Once you wire your speakers to a CONNECT:AMP, you can stream digital music and control the music selection and volume from the Sonos app.

                                            5. Can I connect Sonos to my TV?

                                              PLAYBAR is the only soundbar that delivers outstanding Hi-Fi Sound for your TV and is a complete Wireless HiFi System that plays all the music on earth. It is simple to set-up, control and expand throughout your home. With only an optical cable connecting PLAYBAR to your TV, you can control it with your regular TV remote or with the free Sonos apps on iOS, Android, Mac and PC.

                                              PLAYBAR is the core piece in a Sonos home theatre solution. If you want dramatically deeper bass, you can add our wireless SUB. If you're looking for surround sound, you can use two PLAY:1s or two PLAY:3s as wireless rear surrounds.

                                            6. Can I connect more than 2 speakers to the CONNECT:AMP?

                                              The CONNECT:AMP is designed for a single pair of speakers - it is a stereo amplifier, right and left channel. However, if your speakers are rated at 8 ohms, you can wire up to 2 pairs, or 4 speakers, to one CONNECT:AMP - you just won’t have independent control between those two pairs of speakers, in terms of volume and music selection.  ×
                                            7. Can I use two PLAY speakers as a stereo pair?

                                              The PLAY:1, PLAY:3 AND PLAY:5 can easily be setup as a stereo pair, using the controller app. If you are looking for more distinction between the left and right channels, you can use any two matching Sonos speakers in a stereo pair. Creating a stereo pair is a simple software toggle which turns one speaker into a dedicated left and the other into a dedicated right. Stereo pairing creates a wider stereo experience to help you hear every instrument and vocal more discretely, and fill a room more evenly with sound.

                                            8. Which speaker is right for my room?

                                              All of our speakers sound great in any room; which speaker is best for your particular room depends on your desired room experience. For many, the PLAY:1 will provide an incredible music experience with deep bass and plenty of power. Consider upgrading to a PLAY:3 or PLAY:5, or to a stereo pair of speakers if you:

                                              • Want deeper bass
                                              • Want more power
                                              • Have the space to set up two players in stereo pair mode

                                            9. How do I choose between a PLAY:5 and a stereo pair of PLAY:1s?

                                              While both options deliver an incredible music experience, each has its unique benefits. The differences:

                                              • Choose PLAY:5 for maximum power and the deepest bass.
                                              • Choose a stereo pair of PLAY:1s to create a wider sound stage, allowing every vocal and instrument to be heard more discretely.
