About the Sonos Playbar 5.1 Home Theater System

Outstanding sound for your TV

This Sonos 5.1 home theater system can surround you with detailed, realistic sound. It features a Sonos Playbar for the front channels and a Sonos Sub for deep bass. We include a single Sonos One speaker and a Sonos One SL for the surrounds. That combination allows voice control over the system using your choice of Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. Like with all Sonos systems, you can stream music from online music services, internet radio stations, or your computer.

Simple setup

The powered Sub connects wirelessly to the Playbar, so you can place it anywhere in the room that's near a wall outlet. The two included surround speakers complete the wraparound movie theater sound experience. And because these powered speakers also make a wireless connection to the Playbar, you can place them without running cables to the back of the room. (Just remember, they'll need AC power, too.)

You can set up your Sonos home theater system without making a wired connection to your router. However, for challenging Wi-Fi® environments we recommend adding the optional Sonos Boost (not included) to ensure a stable wireless connection.

Voice commands get the music flowing

The Sonos One has a 6-mic array with noise cancellation to ensure it hears your commands. Tell Alexa or Google Assistant to mix and match from Spotify®, Deezer, TuneIn internet radio, and more. You can control even more music features through the Sonos app on your smartphone or tablet.

Selecting music to play is now easier than ever. Tell Alexa to mix and match from Pandora®, Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, and more. And of course, you can control even more music features through the Sonos app on your smartphone or tablet.

Beyond music

The Sonos One lets you access many of the services Alexa and Google Assistant have to offer.

The free Amazon Alexa app lets you set up "skills." These are the services you can direct Alexa to access. It includes information sites, popular smart home brands such as Nest and Wemo®, sports sites, and more.

The same is true with the free Google Home app. You can have hands-free voice control over compatible smart home devices from Wemo, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Nest, and others.

Multi-room home audio

The four components in this bundle can also form the core of your own Sonos multi-room wireless audio system — or represent a major addition to one if you already have Sonos in your home. Place Sonos players like the Sonos One or the larger Play:5 in every room where you want to listen to music.

And with your Playbar is part of a Sonos multi-room system, you can send sound from your connected TV to other Sonos speakers all around your house.

Simple, intuitive control

Control the system's volume and mute functions using your existing TV, cable, or universal remote. The free Sonos Controller App lets you control the Playbar with your smartphone or tablet and allows you to stream music to your system even when your TV is off.

Compatible with Apple AirPlay® 2

The Sonos One and One SL speakers have AirPlay 2 built in. So you can stream audio directly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac® computer through your Sonos system. That includes soundtracks from YouTube® videos and Netflix movies.

And if you subscribe to Apple Music®, you can do even more. Use Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV 4K to control Apple Music with voice commands. Tell it what selection or playlist to play — and which Sonos speakers you want it to play through.

Trueplay speaker tuning for optimal sound

If you run the Sonos control app on an iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®, you can use it to fine-tune your wireless surround sound system with Sonos's handy Trueplay feature. It uses the mic built into your mobile device to measure how the sound reflects off your walls and furnishings. Then it adjusts the speaker settings automatically for the best possible sound.
