Utterly, utterly brilliant, but… Some questions. First, do you love buttons, cables and don’t mind complexity? If yes, you might do better for the money with a good surround sound amp, speakers and some careful setup. Secondly, can your TV push a Dolby Digital signal through its optical digital output? If no, and particularly if it doesn’t have an optical output, look elsewhere. Thirdly, if movies are much more important to you than music and you want surround sound without 5 or more speakers in your lounge, look at the Yamaha YSP2200. Finally, can you afford the Sonos Sub as well? Because the Playbar works so much better with it.In design and build quality terms, this is Apple standard. Pull it out of the box, inspect the materials and how Sonos put it together. You’ll see what I mean. Setup is straightforward for anyone that can cope with ripping a CD and storing music on a PC, Mac or a NAS. Functionality is top class. Want Deezer, Spotify, internet radio or your own music library? You’ve got them…

It’s a nice piece of kit. I own a couple of Play 5 devices so I’m familiar with Sonos and how they work/interact.Having turned a bedroom into a TV room I needed a soundbar, didnt want the wires associated with a full surround sound system, and the release of the Sonos Playbar to work alongside the Sub seemed like a good solution, coupled with the fact that it would integrate nicely with what I already have.Had the product demonstrated for me in Hinchlys Cardiff and was very impressed with the playbar as both a standalone music streaming device, but also as a system for playing the TV sound, as you know the newer TV sound is poor these days due to the thinness of the TV.It’s always difficult to judge exactly how it will sound in your home as showrooms tend to be very large, but having got it home I am extremely impressed with the sound from the playbar, when you couple that with the deep bass tones of the sub it’s a really complete system.I appreciate it’s…
