Description

Bring your TV audio to life with the Sonos Playbase. This soundplate features 10 integrated drivers that are each driven by digital class-D amplifiers, adding power and clarity to the sounds of your favorite movies, series, or games. You can use WiFi to link the device to your Sonos multi-room system. Add the Sonos SUB and 2 PLAY:1 speakers to create a wireless 5.1 set. This allows you to enjoy a deep bass, and means sound effects will come at you from all angles. You can simply place the soundplate underneath your TV. All you need to connect the Playbase is an optical cable and a power cable.

Note: Sonos products don't use the 5GHz network, so always make sure your WiFi is installed on the 2.4GHz network before buying a Sonos product.


Note:this speaker is compatible with Google Assistant. That means that besides this speaker, you need a speaker with built-in Google Assistant, like the Sonos One, Sonos Beam, or Google Home, in order to use voice control.

    Great asset

    Martin Harlaar | 21 June 2017 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Great TV sound!
    • Great sound audio!
    • Wonderful networking experience
    • Very easy to install
    • Minimalistic compared to AV amplifier, speakers and subwoofer

    To replace Sony AV DN1050 and 2 times KEF iQ 50 and subwoofer. Plus point: all cables gone, large speakehrs gone and space in the furniture back. Wife very pleased. Expected to sacrifice quite a bit on sound quality. Doesn't disappoint. Much better than standard TV speaker Philips 55PUS7909! Less power than the strong Sony AV receiver and a bit less detail, especially in the middle than the KEFs, but very, very acceptable, especially at a normal listening level. You certainly don't expect this good sound from such a flat cabinet. Very satisfied!

    Beautiful sound, beautiful design. We have a Samsung TV and the leg does protrude slightly over the edge of the playbase. If your TV hangs on the wall, you will of course not be bothered by this.

    • Well built
    • Integration with other Sonos products
    • Easy to use
    • No DTS
    • Optical input only

    Beautiful and solid design, works great with Sonos products and software. Limited connectivity options and no DTS.

    Perfect device, if you have the money for it.
    • nice sound for TV and music
    • nice flat model
    • easily expandable to 5.1
    • expensive
    • no extra connection option besides optical (is sufficient for me by the way)

    I wanted a good amplification for my TV. The Soundbase is that and more. My Marantz amp and other boxes are now going on Marktplaats. The soundbase is a nice basis for expansion to 5.1 and multi-room use.

    Watching TV is a great experience with Sonos.
    • easy to connect
    • nice design
    • great sound
    • handy app
    • can be connected via WiFi as well as wired

    Because the sound of the television leaves something to be desired, I decided to order this playbase. The Playbase is very neatly packaged, so that it came out of the box undamaged. All connection materials were present, such as the Optical cable and the Ethernet cable. Everything was connected very quickly via the short manual, which is only in English, by the way. Because I already had two Sonos play 5's, I immediately have a surround system. The sound is great also the bass, so for my connection it is not necessary to buy an extra bass. When speaking, everything is very easy to understand. Music sounds absolutely great, whether from the TV or through the Sonos App.

    Everything you can expect from SONOS and just a little more
    • Plug & play
    • Beautiful design
    • Big difference in volume when switching from TV to Music

    The playbase comes as a replacement for a Pioneer Home theater system.
    In terms of sound only (temporarily) have to lose bass (but sub will follow). Furthermore, it is especially a blessing that only two instead of 12 cables have to be concealed.

    Happy with the purchase
    • easy to connect, only 1 cable outside power supply
    • Fits nicely under TV
    • Can be combined with other SONOS speakers
    • pricey

    A beautifully finished product, very easy to install. In combination with 2 sonos PLAY1 speakers, the sound experience is even better.

    True Sonos quality
    • Fits under TV
    • nice sound
    • Simple installation.
    • Limited number of sound formats
    • at the price

    For a while I considered the playbase too expensive. When the Sonos Beam came on the market, the choice was made quickly. But unfortunately the Beam blocked the TV remote because I wanted to place it in front of the TV. Then bought the Playbase and sent the Beam back.
    As always with Sonos, the connection is simple. Sound is wonderful. The number of surround formats is limited, but that's no problem for the way I use the system. I haven't tried surround speakers yet, but I'll definitely try that.

    super!
    • fits under TV
    • very easy to install
    • 'heavier' sound compared to the playbar

    First had a playbar, it was ugly in a place in front of the TV. The playbase fits underneath, and also seems to have a nicer, deeper sound due to the built-in woofer.
