A single BRIDGE will allow up to 31 other Sonos components to operate wirelessly.

Best sound bar I have ever heard! Review by Clozer

If your looking at buying this along with the sonos sub, DON'T! Save your money on the sub. Buy the soundbar first. The bass is unbelievable out of this thing. I actually leave my sub unhooked. It is definitely more expensive than other options but you won't regret it. Great unit! (Posted on 6/26/14)

Great product that delivers outstanding sound for TV and music. Easy to setup and load music into the app on the computer, easy to control from and iPhone or and iPad.

The night sound feature is great for after the kids are in bed to keep it clear, but not overpowering. I cannot wait for the sub woofer to come off back order.

I read review after review and went to my local electronics store multiple times to drool over the Sonos Playbar. As you've probably already read, yes, it is very expensive. I was on the fence for a long time. I'm not an "audiophile", but I understand how much better an experience can be with proper sound. The Playbar changed the game for me. My enjoyment of simply watching a movie has gone through the roof compared to the terrible speakers built into my beautiful 59" TV. After 10 minutes, my first thought was "how can I get more money so I can buy more Sonos?" The ability to control it from my phone and the high quality sound and build is what you pay for, and you won't regret it. (Posted on 6/26/14)

Purchased the sound bar, sub, and two 3's . At first I wasn't very happy with how it sounded due to the optical out through TV not passing the sound correctly. I ended up buying a 4x2 HDMI switch, hooked it up today and the difference is night and day. Seriously. If you haven't gotten a device to pass through the correct audio signal, you're not experiencing how great this system could sound. Now I'm very happy with how my bedroom surround is sounding.

I bought 2 Sonos Playbars with 2 fixed brackets known as low-profile wall mounts ABOVE TV standing above cabinet fireplace w Sonos Sub Woofers away from same wall..Phenomenal full room sound was achieved. It's part of a multiroom Sonos speaker system throughout the house. A completely satisfied investment well worth the money. TV, Sirius XM, and personal record/cd collections all works incredibly. The envy of all my DJ friends. (Posted on 6/26/14)

Very happy with the sound from this, am running the playbar by itself (without a sub or satellites) and find it has sufficient volume to easily hear a level down/up from it's location in the house. The bass is of course not ideal without the sub, but it's punchy and nice to listen to.
The sonos app/installation can be problematic, but once it's all set up, all good. :)

Wow! Review by DAL-LV

Ready to get unwired and de-cluttered? I was...I had several audio/video components including the traditional surround sound set-up but I thought the tangle of wires and boxes was going to drive me crazy! A friend suggested this system which can be bought as separates. I bought the Playbar, sub-woofer and play-3 rear speakers and in the end decided I only needed the Playbar and sub for now. The sound is astonishing with just the two pieces and when I get settled in a permanent location I will pick up the Play-1 speakers for portability around the house and full theater sound when I want it. With a system this flexible you can have great sound in every room! The iPad controller app is great and easy to use. Let me say it again...the sound is magnificent. One caveat, pairing the speaker functionality through one universal remote can be tricky. So either spend some time on the Sonos web-site boards or get some help with the installation.

Love Love Love.., Review by Dimashqi2020

I was a sceptic. Shopped for months. I needed everything to work together, my itunes library, that s sitting on my NAS device, connected to the Apple TV, and controlled by my Macbook, with PS3 hooked up to tv via HDMI. All systems smooth within less then an hour. I also wanted the clean crisp look. My MP3 collection sounded good, I ran Vevo on the apple tv, and that was great; This this is AMAZING!! And it packs a punch for what is is being a "soundbar". We have a decent size living room. Did not hook up a sub nor Play1s. It is still pretty cool. The best thing is when all system sync together with little effort. I recommend downloading the desktop app in addition to the android/iOS apps. Don't worry about the DTS support rhetoric. You will love it just fine without it. (Posted on 6/25/14)
OMG Review by CL "CL"

Power, Bass and clarity. We first bought the harman kardon as a cheaper alternative but were not pleased because of either poor quality or simply a lemon. It gave off cracking noises every so often. But this review is about the Sonos so back to topic. This was bought as a replacement to the previously mentioned Harman Kardon sound bar. OMG. Worth every single penny. Set up was easy and it can be used with your music library or as a sound bar to complement your tv. Currently I'm listening to my iTunes library with my Sonos and I'm in heaven! It's solid, sleek, visually attractive and the performance is unmatched. Would I buy again....in a heart beat! I whole heartedly recommend this sound bar. I like that I can customize my sound system and expand upon it. I eventually would like to expand into the bedrooms etc and thats ultimately why I chose this system. I consider it a small investment that will grow with my family as our needs change. Quality is beyond what was expected. Multi-functional equals more for your money! (Posted on 6/25/14)
Rich, full sound Review by JosCee

We have other Sonos speakers, which are awesome. We finally got the Playbar and love it, the sound from the TV is rich and full, adds another layer of depth to the viewing experience. You can also play your other apps through it too, like any other Sonos speaker (eg, music services). Just make sure your TV has an optical out! Otherwise you'll have to return it or get a new TV.

Pairing Playbar with LG Magic Remote Review by E. Theobald

I absolutely love the playbar! I have two that are paired with Subs and they are linked to new LG webos tvs (lb 7100 series). It took awhile to figure out how to make this set up work, and after a lot of trial and error (see below), this smart tv / smart music set up works and sounds great.

I was able to pair the LG magic remotes to my playbars using the Phillips soundbar remote type 3 setting. In the device connector set up on the tv, select phillips as the soundbar manufacturer. On the next screen, use remote type 3, then click done. To link magic remote to the playbar, open sonos controller app and select replace remote and go through the steps by pressing volume +/-/mute as indicated. Once Sonos says the pairing is done (on the app), then click NO on the LG screen that asks if you want to reset AV. NO, not yes! Your volume +/- buttons on the magic remote should now work your sonos playbar / sub. Please note that the mute button on the lg magic remote will delete these settings so don't press it. There is no mute option that I can find but at least you can change the volume. Hope this helps for those of you interested in the Playbar with the new webos LG TVS.

Not just for streaming music Review by A Busy Mom "(redundant I know)"
Price
Value
Quality
While they market the Sonos speakers as wireless speakers for streaming music, we replaced our AV Receiver with the Soundbar, a bridge, and four Play: 1 speakers. The setup was very easy. We have it configured with the Soundbar in front of the TV plus (2) speakers for the surround and two more speakers in the kitchen to allow someone to hear the television or music without having to crank up the volume. I love the ability to control the system from our iPads or iPhones. The only shortfall is the organization of the controls in the app. It took forever to figure out where to adjust the volume for the kitchen speakers when grouped with the family room speakers. It was also a challenge to find the setting for volume control on the rear speakers. If not for the confusing structure of the app, I would give it 5 stars. (Posted on 6/25/14)
