The sound bar for music lovers
This is no ordinary sound bar. The Sonos PLAYBAR connects to your TV to play movies, TV shows, and sports with vibrant, room-filling sound. But, unlike other sound bars and like all Sonos speakers, it offers wireless access to a world full of music — Pandora®, Spotify®, Beats Music™, thousands of Internet radio stations, and more. Control the PLAYBAR using your TV's remote control and using the free Sonos app for smartphones and tablets to stream digital music.
The technology behind the Sonos PLAYBAR
The nine-speaker PLAYBAR features three tweeters and six midrange speakers for cinematic sound without loading your room up with speakers. Built-in amplification and processing can handle Dolby® Digital and lossless audio formats. And the PLAYBAR's automatic equalization self-adjusts to the program material to provide rich, seamless sound.
Three options for home theater sound
Add the Sonos SUB (sold separately) to the PLAYBAR for rich 3.1-channel home theater sound.
3.0 home theater
Connect PLAYBAR to your TV with an included optical digital cable for clean, clear sound from TV shows and movies.
3.1 home theater
Pair a Sonos SUB with PLAYBAR to add bass impact to your home theater system. The SUB pairs wirelessly with the PLAYBAR using proprietary Sonosnet™ technology, at the touch of a button. It's a simple way to enjoy rich, full sound.
5.1 home theater
Add two Sonos PLAY:3 or PLAY:1 speakers to the PLAYBAR and SUB for a complete, wraparound movie theater experience in your living room. Like the SUB, the PLAY:3 speakers wirelessly connect to the PLAYBAR so you don't have to run speaker wire around your room.
Please note: The PLAYBAR must be connected to your broadband router for use in home theater setups with the Sonos SUB or other Sonos speakers as rear speakers. If your router is in a different room from the PLAYBAR, you can use the optional Sonos Boost (not included) to make a stable wireless connection.
You probably already own a Sonos controller
Control PLAYBAR volume and mute functions using your existing TV, cable, or universal remote. The free Sonos Controller App lets you control PLAYBAR with your smartphone or tablet and allows you to stream music to the PLAYBAR even when your TV is off.
Rhapsody®, Pandora®, SiriusXM, and more at your fingertips
The Sonos system works seamlessly with a host of Internet music services, including Rhapsody, Pandora, Napster®, and SiriusXM Internet Radio. Rhapsody offers instant access to millions of songs and ad-free radio stations. SiriusXM Internet Radio gives you access to over 80 channels of programming. Every Sonos system includes free 30-day trials of these two services, so you can start listening the moment you take it out of the box. Pandora creates customized Internet radio streams just for you — all you have to do is enter the name of your favorite song or artist. And because Sonos connects directly to the Internet for all of these music services, you don't even have to turn on your PC.
Play music stored on your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®
Sonos now gives you convenient wireless access to music and podcasts stored in the Music app of iOS devices, for playback throughout your entire Sonos system. This feature works on devices running iOS6 or later (see below for full list of compatible Apple devices). The system even lets you connect multiple Apple players at once. For instance, you can queue up songs from your iPhone to play in the kitchen while you cook, and your spouse can stream a podcast in the den at the same time.
Expand your Sonos system
You can have up to 32 Sonos music players in your system, and each one can play an independent selection of individual tracks or playlists. Listen to jazz in the den while your spouse plays rock music in the kitchen, or pump a single playlist of songs throughout the entire house during a party.
