Overview

Our take on the Sonos PLAYBAR

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 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

Clearer TV sound
All by itself, the PLAYBAR acts as your front left, center channel, and front right home theater speakers. Connect it to your TV with an included optical digital cable for clean, clear sound from TV shows and movies.

Add bass
Pair a Sonos SUB with PLAYBAR to add bass impact to your home theater system. The SUB pairs wirelessly with the PLAYBAR at the touch of a button. It's a simple way to enjoy rich, full sound.

Get surrounded
Add two Sonos PLAY:1, PLAY:3, or PLAY:5 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.

Note: You can set up a home theater system with the PLAYBAR, the SUB, and other Sonos speakers as surrounds, all without making a wired connection to your router. However, for challenging Wi-Fi® environments we recommend adding the optional Sonos Boost (not included) to make a stable wireless connection.

Sonos controllers

The Sonos app gives you easy wireless control

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.


Spotify®, Apple Music™, SiriusXM, and more at your fingertips

The Sonos system works seamlessly with a host of streaming music services, including Pandora®, Spotify, Apple Music, Rhapsody®, TIDAL and more. You also have access to thousands of Internet radio stations from around the world through TuneIn Radio, and terrestrial radio stations through iHeartRadio. If you subscribe to SiriusXM Internet Radio, you can tune into all your favorite programming on any Sonos player in your system.

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.

Blown away by this sound bar, it really doesn't get any better

Overall, the Playbar sounds great. It puts out more Bass than I expexted and has a wide soundfield. It sounds a little better with music but dialogue is crystal clear for tv. It's super easy to set up and use and integrates very well with my Play:5 and Play:1.

Pros: Convenient, easy to set up, sounds great.

Cons: None so far.

Sonos Playbar sound bar

Anonymous from Boulder, CO on 4/20/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My SONOS set up is the playbar, sub, and 2 play 1 surrounds. My review is biased toward what the system is advertised to be which seems mostly accurate. It is a playbar designed for home theater that is a huge improvement on TV audio and also does pretty well with music. Is it better sound quality than you would get with a similar priced standard wired set up ? - no. More on that later. Is it extremely convenient and an easy way to add audio to rooms in spaces that are not wired for sound?- yes. It is a trade of sound quality for convenience and visual aesthetics. It is very strong at the high and low end with sub. It is noticeably weak in the mid range which also makes for an awkward accentuation of the strengths with certain types of music and certain instruments. As always it is a matter of listening preference and the types of music you love the most. Anything can do relatively well at rock and roll and SONOS is no exception. Other areas are not so great. Acoustic guitar sounds airy. Certain piano sounds flat ( and not because flat notes are being played). Drums have accentuated cymbals and bass and miss on the tom toms. Horns actually sound quite good. What is my basis of comparison?: A different series that Crutchfield doesn't sell, with a MARANTZ receiver- no comparison. A 16 speaker stock Lexus sound system- no comparison. Why did I make the trade? I live in a small condo and since I moved in I have not been able to properly set up my wired

Pros: Convenience Visual Aesthetics Space No wires

Cons: Not for audiophile music listeners.

Sonos Playbar

Ted from Seattle, WA on 4/16/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sonos play bar was my second attempt at installing a sound bar with my new TV. I started with a Martin Logan; sound-wise it's a little better than the Sonos, but by itself it didn't give me the surround sound experience that I was looking for. I exchanged it for the Sonos play bar. Combined with my two Sonos Play:1 satellites and a subwoofer, I have the home theater experience that I've been looking for.

Pros: Good sound. Easy to set up

Cons: None that I can think of.

As advertised!

Kelly from Taylorsville, KY on 3/27/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very easy set up and great sound. I was expecting a little more range as the mids and lows aren't overly strong but the voices and highs are crisp and clear. Looking forward to adding a sub to hear more in the low/mid end range.

Pros: Set up and control

Cons: Leaves a little to be desired on the low/mid range.

Very happy with this purchase, this Sonos Playbar replaced a Polk Audio Playbar and I couldn't be happier with the sound produced, especially voices.

Pros: Great sound, easy set-up

Cons:

No DTS decoding, No HDMI inputs

Sage from Irvine, CA on 1/26/2017

This is a great product if you want an easy way to get better sound from your flat, HDTV and music, but if you want real surround sound, this is not for you. The playbar will accept Dolby Digital 5.1 to decode if your HDTV will actually pass through the signal it receives via HDMI or other inputs, using the optical audio out. The playbar will only accept optical input or plain old analog L/R speaker terminals. There to no HDMI inputs on the bar so as you switch the inputs on your TV, the only audio the bar receives is what it gets from the HDTV. The majority of HDTV's from pre-2016 DO NOT pass through bitstream, or "surround sound" to the optical audio output from the HDTV. The TV's "dumb down" what is receives to PCM or plain old stereo output to the optical output. Also, Sonos WILL NOT decode DTSHD from so many Blu-Ray discs so even if you get a bitstream passage to the playbar, you will hear nothing. Not what I would call a top notch item for home theater fans. There are streaming services to get music and it will play from items on your pad or phone for music, but for actual film watching, no worth it.

Pros: Easy to set up, sounds great with proper input. Way better than regular HDTV audio sound

Cons: Too pricy for what you get, not for true "Home Theater"

Captivating Sound

Jeremy from Sandy Hook, CT on 1/25/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I mounted this PLAYBAR below my TV in a newly finish basement and was very impressed with the quality, sound, and ease of installation. The crisp, clean sounded really enhances our game-day and movie watching experience. I'm looking into also purchasing the Subwoofer and 2 PLAY1s for true surround sound. I'm so captivated by the SONOS sound, that I'll never purchase another brand speaker again.

Pros: Captivating Sound, Easy set-up, 5-Stars all around

Cons:

Wonderful Addition to my system

John from Effingham, IL on 1/17/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The TV speakers I had been using made it hard for me to follow dialog. I switched to the playbar and it made a tremendous difference. Then I added the bass station and it became a great package -- fantastic for listening to music.

Pros: Great sound when listening to TV. Easy Setup.

Cons: Price.

Mary Jo from Michigan City, IN on 1/12/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted a wireless and/or Bluetooth system to replace an old, but beautiful sounding, heavily wired Bose 3.2.1 system that I had for nearly 10 years. Since the last time I hooked up any audio was nearly 10 years ago, no one was more surprised than I was when all I had to do was connect that skinny little optical cable to my TV and it worked. Like a charm. Beautiful sound, and we paired it with the Sonos wireless sub-woofer. It's really quite fun to walk around the living room waving my iPad around in some in some kind of modern dance for the auto-tune function. The sound is great and I'm very, very happy the Crutchfield team educated me about the current state of hi-fi and wifi so I could get the right system for me. It's nice to come into the 21st century!

Sonos design and quality can't be beat. I admit that sometimes my hearing of spoken words,especially whispers, was not always clear. NO more! Unit looks great in my room. I placed it on the top of my furniture using the flexson enclosure (available from Crutchfield). Wall mounting didn't work for me. Looks great and elevates the TV to provide room for the play bar without covering the bottom of the picture . Looks clean and sharp. Very happy with my purchase.

Ziggydmon from Palm Beach Gardens, FL on 1/9/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound, easy set up! This is my first Sonos product with a boost and 2 play 3's. I ordered the sub but it's on back order and I'm glad it is. I don't need the sub with this sound. I'm going to switch it out for another play 5 or 3. My tv never sounded so good. It's weird with the better sound the tv picture even looks better! I had a Polk sound bar and this is far superior, grant it it was a couple of hundred dollars cheaper. The packaging is very thoughtful. Everything arrived well packed. Thank you crutchfield for helping through my purchase.

Pros: Easy set up, great sound

Cons: A bit large but I bought the flexscon tv stand and I'm getting used to it.

Dan from Phoenix, AZ on 12/28/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

4/5 stars; Only reasons I didn't give it 5 stars was...A) it took a phone call to sink up my remote to the sound bar itself and B) the cost...its $650 bucks! Way more than close competitors prices. Other than that, it was easy to mount under my 65 inch TV and the sound is terrific. I love that you can easily switch from TV sound to music on my Amazon music. Full disclosure...I've only owned this sound bar approx. 3 weeks so I'm hoping I'll have plenty of great years with this thing.

Pros: Sound quality Ease of setup

Cons: Cost Ease of setup ( you have to have correct remote)

Dennis from Mountain View, CA on 12/22/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I started my Sonos system with a couple of Play:1's last year. They sounded pretty good for such a small speaker, but they were annoyingly inferior to the sound from my crusty old Bose system in the room next door. Still, the wireless technology is seductive and I decided to take a chance on the Soundbar because I wanted to bring my music system to the TV speakers in another room. I am very impressed by the Soundbar, both in sound and in operation. I got the subwoofer too, so I can't really comment on the Soundbar alone, but the combination is just terrific.

Pros: compact, easy to set up, great sound for music, and part of the Sonos network

Cons: Not terribly flexible in hookup--but sacrificing that flexibility means simpler setup and operation.

Superb, just what I was looking for

Sean from Northport, NY on 12/21/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Only have it a few days, but I love it. Absolutely love it. There are plenty of reviews about the sound etc, here's some things I couldn't find in the reviews: I wanted.... - A system which would sound great for the TV, and allow wireless (not bluetooth) streaming from phones, ipads, pcs etc. - I didn't need it to shake the house, but I have a large family room with a high ceiling, wanted the TV and Music to sound great. - Google Play or Apple Music in addition to Pandora and Soundcloud. I know you can get a chromecast and plug it into anything, but I wanted to control everything seamlessly from the app - Accept the TV remote for sound - Expand into multi room music when I want to. Sonos pretty much hit everything. I didn't get the subwoofer. Maybe one day, but I have a family and too few opportunities to get to shake the foundations. TV and Music sound great, they fill the room and while it's not a club, music sounds great without the sub. I've been using TV speakers my whole life, listening to the playbar was a similar experience to watching HD the first time. The app is excellent. From setup to playing almost anything, its well put together. Setup took 20 minutes, about half of that was setting up online services. The only minor gripe is my TV can't display a sound level and puts a label up that the sound is switched off when I use the TV remote. There's a work around, but I don't think its worth the effort of switching to a new remote out

Pros: Streams just about anything. Sound is great

Cons: None

Excellent when configured properly

Anonymous from Birmingham, AL on 12/21/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have used a Yamaha YHT-S401BL (soundbar w/ amp & sub) since 2013, and it does the job quite well. That said, I had recently purchased two Sonos Play:1 speakers, and became quite amazed at the sound quality and their capabilities, which led me to purchase the Playbar. Compared to my Yamaha soundbar, the Playbar is enormous and was kind of a pain to mount. The wires are difficult to hide as they are angled upwards, so you can see them ever so slightly when looking down (they are pushed through the wall). The Sonos app is extremely easy to use and setup, and took little effort to sync the Playbar with my existing Play:1s (surround sound). The Playbar uses Toslink, which is a very rare connection on sound systems these days as I would say the majority use HDMI. It never dawned on me to investigate my Samsung 4k TV's capabilities. The reason I say this is because Samsung is one of the few TVs in the market that will not convert sound to Dolby Digital or DTS through the toslink cable. Luckily, you can purchase a Monoprice HDMI switch that can help with this flaw. While this adds an additional step to turn on the systems, it allows you to utilize the full Dolby Digital experience. Overall, the playbar produces excellent sound when configured with Play:1s or Play:3s for surround sound. By itself, I don't think the price is worth it. I love Sonos though, and will stick with its products going forward as I love the wireless capabilities and the Sonos App

The product arrived earlier than estimated which is great. This sound bar has performed wonderful so far. Voices are clear and easy to hear. There are no problems with lag connecting to my other Sonos players. And I love the feature that allows you to program your TV remote to control the volume of the soundbar.

I compared this sound bar to the latest Bose sound bar over and over and at various electronic stores. I am convinced that the Sonos sound bar just edged out the Bose bar. Supered sound with its high and mid ranges. I am totally satisfied and being a Bose fan.

Typical Sonos quality and awesome sound. Paired it with the sub and the setup was typical Sonos... simple. As soon as I opened the box I was impressed at even how well it was packaged. Setting it up was as simple as a few clicks in the app and I was good to go. Doubles as a room zone for the rest of my Sonos speakers and doesn't disappoint there either. Sounds great. Wish I had bought it sooner.

Pros: Sound, easy setup.

Cons: Price

I had to return due to the fact that it would not work with my play station 3 blu- ray dvd player. It also did not work with about 10% of my Netflix streamed videos. I don't like the fact that it doesn't have a supplied remote - you need an Ipad or android tablet to set up and control the system. Note that I was not interested in purchasing streamed music services just in house audio- DVD & cable content.

Sonos wins out over my old 5 speaker system

kai from Barboursville VA on 12/8/2016

I've had a Sony receiver and 5 wired surround sound speakers (replaced a couple of times by newer models) since surround sound came out. I was reluctant to replace that whole system with 3 speakers (Playbar and two Play 1's), but on the advice of the advisor at the Charlottesville store i did. The sound is sigfinicantly better with Sonos, and far simpler - from setup with Sonos app to no wires to distant speakers, no receiver, etc. I like the sound balancing with the app that is definitely better than the old way that was more manual, as the sound balance seems perfect to my ears now.

The PLAYBAR does the job. I plan to integrate it with the Connect:AMP in the near future after I purchase one. I'm optimistic that my existing in wall speakers and sub woofer will sound incredibly well with the PLAYBAR to complete my home theater sound system.

Pros: Easy to set up Great sound

I purchased the Playbar and sub together and couldn't be happier. I had actually been looking at a Bowers and Wilkins set up but kept hearing about Sonos and finally thought I'd give it a try and if it doesn't work out send it back. Crutchfield wont be getting this back. The sound is great, the set up is easy and I saved $15,000 from the B&W estimate. Next up is 2 5's to finish off the family room then 3's around the house. Outside of serious audiophiles looking for a specific sound I'd say the wired systems are on their deathbed. Btw, I have Tidal and Amazon music services and they sound great and the setup once again is amazing.

Pros: Price, setup, sound, look bass

Cons: I didn't buy this earlier

Don from Tampa, FL on 10/23/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Love the look and the sound. I will probably add the subwoofer in the future. The problem and frustration arose from trying to get my Samsung KS8000 tv remote to control the volume of the PLAYBAR. The PLAYBAR is connected to the tv via the optical digital connection. I had to search the SONOS forums repeatedly until I found this workaround: I have a samsung KS8000 and had problems with connecting my sonos play bar. I don't have a cable box and get my tv instead from over the air broadcasts. At first I couldn't pair the remote with the sonos playbar, but eventually figured it out. Here's what I did. - Go to the universal remote feature in the samsung home menu - Add a device - Search for a brand (since Sonos is not on the list) - Type in Sonos and press enter - Agree to the prompts as they come up, even though it doesn't seem like the remote is turning the playbar off/on - Enjoy using your samsung smart remote now to control your playbar! There should be an easier solution for this high tech and expensive product-that's why I can't rate it 5 stars.

Pros: Design

Cons: Price and connectivity to Samsung KS8000 remote to control volume.

Not as good as Bose Soundtouch 130

John from Bloomington, IN on 10/6/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this, along with the Bose Soundtouch 130. Granted, I did not have the sub with the Sonos, so the comparison may be a little unfair. Nonetheless, we found the Bose offered better clarity for TV and movies. It provided crisp vocals, but also gave ample volume to background noises. For example, in football broadcasts, we could clearly understand the vocals, but the crown noise was pronounced. I liked this. The Sonos seemed more muddled on TV and movies. However, it did seem marginally better for listening to music. I felt that the relative gain on TV and movies of the Bose more than outweighed the gain on music with the Sonos. In the end, I was happy to plug the Bose back in. I should add, I am not a music aficionado, nor a sound expert. Take it for what it's worth! Ultimately, I don't think anyone would really be disappointed with either of these two.

Pros: Excellent sound for music Wireless connectivity (excellent smart phone application)

Cons: Slightly muddled sound on TV and movies (compared to similarly priced products)

I was looking to minimize my home theater footprint and wires and the Sonos Playbar has allowed me to do just that. Installation took all of about 5 minutes. It sounds great (although I've yet to purchase the sub and surrounds) with tv audio and streaming music. It was a little tricky getting the volume controls to work with my LG magic remote but that's been the only glitch.

This is an incredible soundbar to use with Sonos system. I love the ease of connectivity and flexibility to play music and TV through the app. Sometimes my kids are listening to the TV too loud and I can lower it slightly w/o them noticing!

Pros: Flexible, great sound, ease of set up. Whole house connectivity.

Cons: Surround sound can only be done with use of other Sonos. Adding subwoofer makes it and Expensive (but worth it).

Great soundbar which is amazing for a simple set up. Best wireless sound bar and sub set up. The sounds are clear and crisp although the mid lows are a little lacking which some 3's or 5's additional speakers would help out. The set up was a breeze and after installing the Sonos app on my phone it tooka few minutes.

Pros: Quick easy set up with good sound

Cons: Lacks bass so you will need to add the matching sub. Additional speakers needed as the virual surround muddles some of the range but the additional 3's and 5's will help out a lot.

Green225 from Savannah, TX on 7/24/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this for mainly for watching TV in our master bedroom and paired it up with a Sonos sub woofer. Clarity of sound is amazing and it sounds like it is coming from different parts of the room. Not quite a surround sound effect, but close. So, I just ordered 2 Play 1s to complete the circle. The sound bar could stand alone, but I read many reviews online that recommended getting at least the subwoofer. It does make a difference and I expect the addition of the Play 1s to make even a bigger difference. Also, the Sonos App is so easy to use - idiot proof. I am electronically challenged and it took me less than 5 minutes to set up the play bar and sub woofer.

Pros: Sound, voice clarity, ease of setup, and ease of use

Cons: Absolutely none

Toby L. from Davidsonville, MD on 6/28/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been a Sonos user for 6 years and I've got many diff Sonos products throughout my home. Because we are installing hardwoods in our family room, I will lose the ability to run speaker wire around the perimeter of my room - which runs my 5.1 Mirage speaker system including a 10? sub in corner). Naturally, the Sonos Playbar, Sub and two Play 1's will be a perfect solution for my room. I decided to get a jump on it and ordered the Playbar first. Installed it last night and it sounds absolutely AMAZING compared to the factory speakers on my 52" SONY Bravia TV. I knew Sonos makes quality speakers but they took things to another level with the Playbar. The quality and build of this speaker is phenomenal. I am still kicking myself for not purchasing it sooner. I installed it on the wall beneath my TV using the wall mount kit (sold separately and VERY reasonably priced). The template that comes with the mount kit is excellent and it makes hanging it a piece of cake. I opted to bury my optical cable and power cord behind the wall so you cannot see either. I was extremely pleased with the set up process and the features (EQ to adjust bass/treble, etc.). I also love the fact that you can switch the Playbar to listen to music (like other Sonos speakers) by just the touch of a button on your controller. I've been a customer of Crutchfield for 18 years & I've purchased all of my Sonos products through them. Their customer service and shipping times are unmatched in the industry.

Pros: Sound quality, aesthetics, ease of use, ease of set up, versatility

Cons: Can't find any cons at this time

NE1_410S from Oklahoma City, OK on 6/8/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a play 3 in another room but added the playbar and can't wait to add 2 play 1's for real surround effect. I couldn't stop listening to music this morning through the playbar. This is the only sound bar that I've owned so I don't have anything to compare it to but have been satisfied and like that I can group it with my existing sonos. There is a little delay when switching from tv to music but it's not bad. My tv is from 2010 and is giving me an annoying message 'not available' when I adjust the volume. It's not sonos fault, they said the newer tv remotes give an option to get rid of it or they said a universal remote would rid the message.

Pros: sound ability to connect with existing sonos and play music without tv

Cons: pricey. I think other sound bars have dropped and price but sonos remains insane. If I didn't already have the sonos play 3, I would have chose a cheaper option.

Don't use with Samsung SUHD TV's. No DTS or HDMI a limitation.

ttsound from Ponte Vedra Beach, FL on 5/27/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Playbar sounds great and is very easy to set up. Crystal clear dialog and a nice full sound. The problem I had was with intermittent sound drops of a second or two fairly regularly. After working with Sonos, discovered this is a known issue with Sonos and Samsung SUHD tvs. The Sonos rep sent me a link to a document called "Television Compatibility with the PLAYBAR" which you can find if you go to the Sonos Playbar support area under FAQ and search for it. Their solution is to set the audio output on the Samsung TV to PCM stereo rather than Dolby Digital. Actually, that didn't even solve my problem and why spend all this money on a soundbar and then only feed it PCM Stereo? I believe the issue is with Sonos rather than Samsung as I have since gone to a different soundbar and now have no sound drops. Also, the Playbar is not capable of processing DTS Digital Surround but the Samsung tv can which may be part of the problem. Because the Playbar doesn't have HDMI connections, there is no other way to run the soundbar except as a slave to the TV unless you buy a separate HDMI switch which the Sonos rep suggested as an option. I didn't try that. I ended up returning the Playbar for a soundbar with HDMI switching capability that could process DTS and am quite happy now. Bottom line, get the compatibility document BEFORE purchasing it to see if your TV is listed as having issues. Again, great sound but I wish it had HDMI switching capability and could process DTS.

Pros: Great sounding system. Very easy to set up with your network. I used the Sound Boost. Good controller via your phone or tablet.

Cons: Only connection is via an optical cable. Cannot connect with HDMI. Sound bar cannot process DTS Digital Stereo. I had intermittent sound drops when using with Samsung SUHD tv. Check the "Television Compatibility with the Playbar" document on the Sonos website before purchasing.

Wish I got this sooner

I recently ditched my home theater system because I wanted to stream line, neaten everything up and plainly I just got sick of a receiver, wires, multiple remotes, cables, and multiple components. I bought a smart TV and the sound bar. It is perfect. I can hear the TV well, it took less than 5 minutes to set up and 3 days later I bought the Sub. Love that you can use sirius with the app, play whats on your iPhone or Droid, laptop (mac) and iPad. You can get apple music, pandora, spotify too plus more. great purchase and make the room clutter free.

Pros: Good to look at, build quality, packaging, ease of use, options, functionality, set up.

Cons: Maybe a little more midrange would be nice. The sub was a great addition

Very easy to set up and the sound is nicely balanced. We live on a pretty busy street and I previously had to constantly adjust the sound. With this the sound stays consistent and I rarely need to make any adjustments. I will say that it definitely needs to the sub to round it out which we will be buying soon. The only real issue I have is a Sonos problem and that is the inability to stream iTunes from iCloud. But we have Apple TV so that's not too big of a deal.

Pros: Easy to set-up Great Sound Great for smaller spaces

Cons: Price Inability to stream iTunes from your iCloud account

You definitely want to add the Sub to this bar.

I was hesitant to purchase because other quality sound bars are half the price, if not more.

This sound bar is amazing! Music sounds incredible and so does everything else coming from the TV...shows, movies, video games, etc. I have not purchased the sub or additional speakers yet and I will wait to purchase until I move into a house. I live in a two bedroom apart, ~1150 sqft and the sound bar has plenty of juice to fill up the living room and kitchen and more. If you are contemplating it...don't...just do it.

Not an audiophile by any means but as anyone, do enjoy great sound through great speakers and the Playbar fits that bill. I am slowly trying to rebuild my 5.1 sound and selected the Sonos Playbar as my first piece. I ordered the wall mount with the Playbar. Installation for both was simple and straight forward. My Playbar is hardwired to my network via Cat6 so I didn't have to run through the wireless setup. Once the Playbar is mounted and connected to the TV, the Sonos software walks you through the setup, couldn't be any easier. The entire experience was great, "bumper to bumper" and highly recommended.

Pros: Easy Installation, easy setup, great features, i.e. night play & voice enhancement & great sound.

Cons: None to-date.

Purchased a Condo for my 89 & 85 year old in-laws. Needed to upgrade the sound quality while maintaining a very simple approach to turning the TV sets on and off. No amps, no receivers, nothing to complicate the task. After receiving absolutely fantastic support from the Sonos Help Desk in Registering and connecting the Sonos Playbar to the new 75" 4K TV and the Network, we never looked back. Hit the cable remote...on it came, hit the off button...off the system went. No fuss, no muss. Perfect for very mature AV fans, plus they can listen to a large selection of music sources direct through the Sonos. I am in the process of purchasing 3 more Playbars for the remaining TV's. They love the Sonos.

Pros: Very good sound, even without the sub. Easy to use, once it is connected.

Cons: Needed the Help Desk connecting the Soundbar, TV, and Network. The assistance was an A+!!!

RCBinTN from LaVergne, TN on 12/2/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I will review the playbar and sub as a combination, because that's what is needed for optimal performance. This is our 2nd playbar/sub combination coming into the house, the first is located in the kitchen and we have about 2-years experience with it. Simply killer sound. So, when we upgraded the living room TV we of course opted for a 2nd Sonos playbar/sub for the sound. We added two Sound2 speakers from a different room, as the rear speakers in the living room for surround sound. One the set-up was complete (it's easy, we already had a Sonos network in our house) the sound just rocks. The addition of the back speakers was a nice upgrade. The playbar does not satisfy without the subwoofer - buy the pair and you won't be disappointed!!

Pros: Solid build quality, very clear/accurate SQ from the playbar, the sub just blows away the house, voices are exceptionally clear while just watching TV (a big plus considering the quality of today's TV speakers), ability to stream music from a variety of sources.

Cons: None. Sonos products have excellent built/sound quality.

BillT from Smithtown, NY on 11/25/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Plain and simple. I looked for a sound bar to pair with my new Samsung JS9000 curved TV that I purchased from Crutchfield and had some concerns about the sound quality given that I previously had Bose Acoustimas 7 series speakers (left, center, right). I was looking to simplify things and not have to deal with the spaghetti connections. While Samsung had a solution that worked with the curved TV, the sound quality wasn't quite what I was used to. Enter the Sonos Playbar. You can tell from my ratings what I think of it. I hope to par it with a set of sonos play one speakers as I found the playbar to be more than adequate to use without the subwoofer although that will likely be on my purchase list next year. What a system. What sound. Clear, robust and I especially like the dialogue enhancement and night time features, which were bonuses and not initially a factor in my purchase decision. But let me say that these features are a bonus. Appreciate the help from Crutchfield tech support in talking me through the initial set-up as I had some initial issues in getting the sound out of the Playbar. But this was an issue with the TV and not with the Playbar and was easily resolved in about 15 minutes. Once hooked up it's been nothing but wonderful. And my wife likes it too, which as the husbands know is a real bonus. I have not heard her once complain about the system.....thank god!!! Spend the money and get the quality and not something that you'll regret later.

Great alternative to wired speakers, Good Sound, paired with Sonos Sub woofer and Boost. Would have given it a 5 had instructions for connecting boost been easier to follow for set up.

Pros: Only wire is from tv to sound bar, much improved sound over TV speakers

Cons: Instructions to set up multiple devices with boost could have been clearer

Sonos Soundbar

PaulR from Georgetown, Texas on 10/5/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Absolutely amazing. This device sounds like a device the cost thousands of dollars more. Easy to set up, reliable, and it looks good on the wall. Who could ask for more? Actually, I could. And I think Sonos is going to deliver too! Sonosis scheduled to come out with room equalization software for the Play1, Play3, and new Play5. I hope they extended the new fet atures to the Soundbar and Sub, because although the sound great already, with the addition of the new software they might sound even better, making them equal to other, far more expensive Audiofile products.

Pros: Sound, ease of use, looks.

Cons: Would rather have an HDMI input that passes through the video. Or in addition to the Toslink connection.

Another quality product from Sonos that will not disappoint

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

In terms of quality of build, sound quality, and ease of use/connection - its 5 stars, easy - its Sonos - thats just is what it is - it gets docked a star - b/c its Sonos, they give very limited connection options - specifcally, no regular line in jack, just an optical - which is fine, and works for me - but I'd want all of their products and not just Play5 to give me option of just connecting a 3.5mm... Anyway - specific to playbar - I use it alone, w/o sats or a sub - and I like it a lot...for my purpsoes, never too loud w/ two kids sleeping - it works well - also I use the enhanced speech and night mode so taht I can acutally watch a movie and hear it at night

Pros:

Cons:

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been debating getting a PLAYBAR for a long time. The cost slowed me down but I have to say I am happy with the purchase. The main draw for me is the night mode and speech enhancements. These features together make watching late night movies with sleeping kids in the house enjoyable again.

Pros: great sound

Cons: not the prettiest thing in the world. I wish it had a line in (other than optical)

Love it. Crystal clear. No mumbling here. Big full clear room-filling sound even when you get to sit in front of the return air. Nice.

Pros: They got this right for Bach and Blues, whispering and yelling.

Cons: None.

I replaced a lesser brand soundbar with the Sonos Playbar and was blown away by the difference in sound quality. I also had sync problems with DVD and streaming movies that I couldn't correct. Not so with the Sonos. I will be adding to the system when my finances allow.

Pros: Great quality sound and a very buildable system. Being able to control it from my IPad, IPhone IMac or my tv remote.

Cons: Price

bc from Massachusetts on 7/9/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

All told, the sound bar is solid. Setup is a breeze, the app is easy and intuitive, and I was pleased with the sound quality as a TV sound bar. However, I also wanted to use this to stream music through the first floor of our house on Saturday mornings. It became clear very quickly that the bass just was not where you would want it to be, so I had to shell out the money on a Sub and a boost. This was a huge improvement and I am pleased with the product... But I am also $1500 into this thing. I did not shop around and I have to think that there are more economical alternatives out there.

Pros: 1. Good quality. 2. Easy to setup, easy to use. 3. Application is well done.

Cons: 1. $$

DJNinetyNine from California on 5/26/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound. Easy to connect to TV and Sonos system.

Pros: All around a good product. I like how you can hear my TV through the sound bar and listen to music all in the same room. That option is superior.

Cons: Rather heavy sound bar. Sucks that you need the sound bar to make the system come full circle. But it's hear at last and sounds awesome.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent product. My first Sonos Playbar was about 1 year ago,and I had no hesitation in buying a second. Although it is a bit pricey, It sounds great and is easy to set up. I love being able to control sound throughout house with all of my Sonos products. Sound much of much better quality than the speakers on my 75" Samsung.

Pros: -easy to set up -integrates with other Sonos components (surround and multi-room)

Cons: pricey

RM from NY on 4/27/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great soundbar and quality is top notch. I went to my local speaker shop and listened to this bar a few times before pulling the trigger. I will tell you that I wasn't impressed with in store demos. I was told once you add the sub to the system it will take the stress away from the bar to produce clearer highs. They had a nice and easy return policy if I didn't like it..... so I bought it. Adding a sub made a world of difference and being able to tweak the eq for my sound preference has kept me from brining it back. Great bar but need the sub to really appreciate it.

Pros: Easy set up Being able to adjust eq for better sound Great build quality Ability to add more components wirelessly

Cons: Can't convert to 5.1 surround unless you add a converter - Octava

SONOS!

Spanky from Louisiana on 4/24/2015

I started with 1 PLAY:1, 1 PLAY:5 and a CONNECT so I could use my primary home theater system on the Sonos network. Then I added another PLAY:1 and now a PLAYBAR. Needless to say I love all my Sonos products. Before I bought it I felt $700 was steep for a sound bar but believe me you get what you pay for. I set it up in my game room in less than 10 minutes and I am beyond impressed with the sound quality. Dialogue is clear and consistent. Even at high volumes this sound bar doesn't lose its composure.Setup was a breeze and even without the SUB this thing packs a punch. Buyer beware Sonos products may be addictive!

Pros: Excellent sound quality! Simple to set up! High WAF! (wife approval factor) Feels like a quality product!

Cons: Only has one optical input Non-Removable grill Price, but again you get what you pay for.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Luckily I had already purchased the sub with two play 3's. I feel if I would only have the Playbar I would be disappointed. The clarity of the Playbar is fantastic, but the lack of bass was definitely present. Overall, with the whole system I am blown away, but I definitely recommend the playbar with the sub.

Pros: Clarity. Ease of setup and use.

Cons: Sounds best when paired with sub. Expensive when you consider the price for sub and Playbar.

Sonos Playbar

OJ from New York on 4/13/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Must have for newer flat panels. Many of the new thin flat panel TV's give you a great picture, but the sound is lacking. Purchased this sound bar, after looking at a variety of surround sound systems, because of ease of connectivity. Extremely easy to switch from playing music from phone, tablet, or computer, to watching TV and DVD's. Another great feature of this system, is you can purchase everything at once (Playbar, Sub, Play 1), or you can also add on the individual pieces separately, which is great if you already have existing audio products that you want to use.

Pros: Great Sound, simple to connect

Cons: None that I can think of so far.

Great piece

Scott from California on 3/30/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I added Playbar to an existing system. Took more time to unbox (great, "Apple-like packaging!) than to set up. Note: TV needs optical output. Operation is seamless with rest of system and with the TV. Player syncs with your TV remote so no additional remote needed. Though pricey when compared to soundbars, it is Easy to set up and enables integration with whole-home system. With Sonos, it's easy to spread out the cost of a system by adding one component at a time. If you like the idea of whole home audio and are considering the purchase of a soundbar, I highly recommend stepping up to Sonos Playbar.

Pros: Great sound. Holds up at high volume yet clear at conversational volume. IMO, worth the premium just for the Easy setup, Easy operation and its ability to double as an Easy to operate music player. Add rooms in minutes when budget allows.

Cons: IMO, Playbar needs the Sub (separate component) to get at the thumps. I have not yet bought it, but will review it after I do. Seems pricey when compared to a soundbar, but you are paying for a sophisticated, flexible system component, not a soundbar.

Manage expectations

Anonymous from Lexington ky on 3/22/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have recently purchased a play 1, play 3, and playbar. I think I might have had unrealistic expectations of the playbar since I previously had a nice integrated amp with bookshelf speakers running my tv and music. The soundbar is just not as great on a sound level as my old setup. That being said the setup, connections, multi room ability, and overall ease of use are definitely as advertised. In my opinion the pros outweigh the cons for my setup (soundbar with a nice tv in the living room). I would not get this if you are looking for true home theater (get the sonos connect and a full system, maybe with play 1s for the surrounds). Overall I like it and I am keeping it, but of all my other sonos products this is the one that I am least excited about. As a side note, I am most impressed by the play 1.

Pros: - Decent sound (bit upgrade over tv speakers) - Ease of use - Multi room connection (great for sports. Get a play 1 or 3 for the kitchen to not miss out while grabbing a brew) - Enough bass for non rappers

Cons: - Decent sound (not home theater surround grade)

The clarity is really extraordinary it blows my Bose out of the water. The price is the only con I have so far. I only bought the playbar now I have to get the sub, boost and play 3 to complete the package.

Pros: Clarity, Radio Stations, Wireless, Sleek

Cons: Price but you know what they say. Good seafood ain't cheap and cheap seafood ain't good same thing applies here

Different Application

JWB from Denver, CO on 3/10/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm using the Sonos Playbar in a different configuration than most, who are using it as a fixed mount or in a surround sound configuration. Here in Denver, we get 300 days of sunshine...so we just completed an outdoor covered patio and deck project and I'm using the Playbar to extend the range of my TV speakers. First, let me iterate that this Playbar is not an outdoor speaker. I have a fireplace wall that is covered from the elements to protect it. However, it does a fantastic job of amplifying my TV's sound for watching movies and football games outdoors. Likewise, with it being a Sonos product, I can push music to it for those late night dance parties on our new deck. When combined with my Play5, I also have the ability to host football parties and have the TV audio broadcast into multiple rooms (pretty slick application). Very easy to set up and take down for cold weather days too. Simply unplug the power and optical audio cord.

Pros: Extends the range of your TV speakers, especially in large open spaces our even outdoors (again, not an outdoor speaker). When combined with other Sonos products, you can push your TV audio (football games) to other rooms where Sonos speakers are located.

Cons: None that I can think of yet.

Really, Really good

Andy from Illinois on 3/8/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I tried multiple sound bars (Sony HT-XT1, Samsung HW-H750, LG NB4543, Denon DHT-S514) and decided on this one. The Denon was a close second, but it died after a week, plus the Sonos music experience is phenomenal. I thought the rest were lacking. I also purchased up two Play:1's (and a free bridge from Sonos) to use in a 5.0 set up and it really works well for movies. I am using an optical switcher to try to get a true Dolby 5.1 signal to the sound bar instead of a stereo signal. The pseudo surround generated when there is a stereo signal is ok. It's more ambient noise in the rear speakers than anything. When you get a true 5.1 signal to the Playbar it is impressive with movies. For those wondering about if this needs the Sonos Sub, I don't think it does. It has decent bass as it is. I tried the Sub, but sent it back as it overpowered the 16 x 16 room I was using. Without the Sub, I could listen to movies and music all day. Sound quality was great for any music I tried. With the Sub, I found I was lowering the output on the Sub to prevent ear fatigue. Once the Sub level was lowered, I thought I was missing part of the music. For regular TV, the Sub did not kick in much. It was noticeable for movies. I just don't think it was worth the cost.

Pros: Sound quality is great for a variety of TV shows, movies, and music. Unlike other sound bars where you keep having to toggle from "News" mode, to "Cinema" mode, etc. depending upon what you are listening to. Will result in listening to a lot of music in your home.

Cons: Lack of DTS Support Had to buy an optical switch to get a 5.1 signal from directv box and amazon fire TV to playbar as this only has 1 input only 1 input

Wow! What a great sound coming from my TV now. I went with the SONOS sound bar so I could add speakers wireless to it at a later time. The set up was easy even for me. We have played music with that same bold sound. I almost bought my sound bar from a national chain but after talking with the salesman I knew Crutchfield was where I needed to buy my sound bar. The salesman answered all my petty questions and gave me their toll free number to call 24/7 for additional questions. I have also used that as well. I will buy the rest of my speakers from Crutchfield.

Pros: Easy set up and to have someone knowledgeable and available to answer all your question. Great sound!

Cons: No cons

Happy with purchase

Cindy from Virginia on 2/6/2015

I am pleased with the player. I paid for the install with the TV and was very pleased with Crutchfield's customer service. It did take awhile to set up the speaker but I think that had to do with my wireless network and Comcast having some service outages.

Pros: I love the ability to listen to local radio stations

Cons: Don't have any yet.

Crutchfield, as always, delivers quickly. I downloaded the SONOS app, followed the instructions and in no time flat I was set up. Good sound especially when turned up. Soon I will pair the playbar with my computer stored and Internet play music.

Pros: Good looking instrument. Easy and quick to set up. Good sound.

Cons: Problem 1: I have a problem that I haven't yet diagnosed. Could be an issue concerning the interface with my new Samsung TV. Whether I press up or down on my remote the volume only goes up and can only be corrected (so far) by operating the buttons on the sound bar itself. Hope to get this cleared up soon. Problem 2: appears to be a lag in the sound vs. what I see on TV set. Minor lag but still annoying.

Loved It So Much I Bought A Second One

DavidinSF from California on 1/25/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been looking for one of the newer "smart" amplifier/speaker integrated systems for some time. I attended the Consumer Electronics Show in 2014 and 2015 and saw many different brands and models and even ordered and tried two of them...they promised Sonos-like sound and capabilities at a lower price. They did not live up to expectations; so I decided to bite the bullet and spring for the Sonos Playbar. First, Crutchfield was awesome in the buying and delivery process (only 3 days to California). From the moment I opened the box, everything was super easy. The apps on my iOS devices and OS X are very well designed and function seamlessly.

Pros: - Sounds quality - Connectivity - Look and design - Simplicty - Sonos apps

Cons: - Pricey - Integration with AppleTV - Amazon Music not well integrated/supported (probably an issue with Amazon, not Sonos)

Sonos Playbar

CMech from Charlottesville on 1/25/2015

Good sound, easy installation. This serves the dual purpose of being my TV sound as well as my music system. It suits my purposes well. I rarely sit in one place long enough to care about stereo and bass is not that important to me either, so this addition may complete my house sound system. I do have a Play 3 that I move to wherever I am. The Playbar is not cheap, but it serves my needs perfectly. Receivers, players, and wired speaker systems are all gone now - and not missed.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I think that it's an excellent product but it does lack a strong bass sound. I paired it with 2 Play:1's to create a surround sound. After reading other reviews, it seems like adding a subwoofer is the way to go to raise the sound quality from very good to great. I will probably order the subwoofer tomorrow.

Pros: Wireless versatility. Great companion for my iphoe

Cons: Needs more bass

Pure Quality!

Pierre from California on 1/18/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had visited a local high fidelity store and after listening to a variety of speaker systems I stumbled across Sonos Playbar. The quality and depth of the sound coming from the Soundbar was impressive without having to wire multiple speakers throughout my house. The sound quality and reputation of Sonos was a plus; however, what sealed the deal was the ability to play or stream your music from your phone or tablet not just having superb TV sound quality for everyday viewing. I did invest in the Subwoofer to complete the sound I was looking for and I could not be any happier. The sound is crisp and the deep tones round out the music experience as if you had your own personal orchestra in your room. It is not inexpensive; however, for the sound quality, practicality, and multipurpose use, you cannot go wrong with this product. I find myself exploring and listening to a variety of music more often.

Pros: Sound quality, ease of installation, multipurpose use (TV or streaming music through WiFi), ability to add on speakers throughout the house without the wiring hassles.

Cons: None...you get what you pay for.

Jay from Audubon, NJ on 1/15/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got this soundbar as my first Sonos device. I was expecting to improve the sound of my television (Samsung HU8500 series) but I am experiencing pretty much the same sound at the most common volume levels. If I turn it up louder than average, it does sound better than the TV, but I almost never listen to TV at that volume. A big part of the problem may be the lack of bass. There is the paranoid consumer side of me that says they did this on purpose so you buy a more expensive sub woofer from them.

Pros: Easy set up, great software

Cons: Does not sound better than the TV, lacks bass, loss of any visual feedback for volume level outside of a Sonos controller

Excellent product. The setup was extremely easy and the playbar functions well. It accomplishes the task of projecting sound out into the room rather than to the side, which is what happens from my television. It actually allows us to lower the volume while the kids are sleeping since it projects the sound to where we are actually sitting.

Pros: Easy setup Integrates flawlessly to your cable box/tv remote Good sound Syncs well with external devices for music playback

Cons: Price

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was looking for a set up that would have great audio sound and give me the ability to play music wirelessly from my iphone (both important to me) and wouldn't have cables dangling all over the house (important to my wife). So many people recommended the sonos system, and I have not been disappointed. It's incredibly easy to set up, and in 5 minutes you can have great sound filling your house. The Crutchfield people are as helpful as ever in ordering, and it's such a joy to see people who are actually knowledgeable about their products. I think I am also going to add a Sub to get the full benefit of the system, but I have been so so pleased with it now. Highly recommended.

Pros: Wonderful sound, ease of set up, neat (wires to a minimum) system.

Cons: a bit costly, but worth it. Comparable in
