I had been thinking about buying the soundbase since it’s release in april but was put off by the price. Finally gave in when the price dropped to £649 and glad that i did. It arrived quicker than expected and it was very easy to set up. I have some sonos play 1 speakers and now use them to create surround sound for the tv. As others have said the sound is amazing, the depth of tonal quality and base is great. When using the soundbase to play music it is something else, i can hear things that i normally wouldn’t using another system. Of course i have to wait for my other half to go out so that i can turn up the volume.
Another first class sonos product. The sonos playbase is the 6th speaker from the santa barbara based consumer audio company which started business in 2002. They have been the pioneers in multi-room wireless speakers and continue to lead the way. Many other companies have now started to produce their equivalents however sonos ease of use and years of experience keep them ahead of the packthe latest addition to their line up is essentially their playbar which they released in 2013 but in a different form factor. The playbar is designed to be mounted on the wall below your wall mounted tv however it can also be mounted on top of your hifi cabinet. Whereas the playbase is designed to be solely mounted on top of your hifi cabinet and as the name suggests a base for which you mount your tv on. According to statistics the majority of people who buy new tv’s do not wall mount them so hence why sonos introduced this option. The playbase is a wireless home cinema speaker that you connect to your tv with an optical cable. Not only can it play sounds from your tv but it replaces your hifi as well. Using the easy to use sonos app on your smartphone or tablet you can stream music that is stored on those devices or if you subscribe to the growing number of music streaming services such as spotify, deezer, apple music, google play music, amazon etc then you can stream that music also.

Reviews from purchasers :
- Great home cinema system
- Excellent sound for TV and Music
- Amazing product best for Sonos users
A person optical cable from telly to sonos. And is also a brilliant streaming music speaker. Expensive but golden quality for people who can pay for it.
This is a good home cinema starter. Your television set goes appropriate on top of it so you really don’t have to fret about it becoming too tall and so forth. The sound high quality is remarkable. Pretty crisp and clear even at higher volumes. You can very easily pair the playbase with the sub and e. 2 play 1s like i have for dolby digital five. The full set up system took me five minutes inc setting up the update.
