Sonos - Great Product

Comment:
After purchasing a 55 Plasma I was looking for a great sound system to compliment it. There are many great options available…but I was looking for something high quality without all the cables and components. The Sonos Soundbar was a no brainer..hi fidelity sound at a low volume, easy set up..AC power and optical connection to TV. I had a few questions and I called into Sonos customer service and the guy who helped me was great. He quickly answered my questions.<br />The Sonos App is user friendly and I subscribe to Spotify..so I can stream music through this system. I had the sound bar for about 6 months and I then purchased the Sonos Sub Woofer…although a bit pricey I am vey happy with my decision and would highly recommend this product….

Comment:
I really don't know why someone would buy any home theater system instead of a Sonos. Their technology is beyond everyone else's. The system is wireless and can be set up in minutes. You can have a movie going in the family room and different channels of music going in other rooms or outside - wherever you choose to locate the other optional wireless speakers. Your remote is your iPod or iPhone from which your entire iTunes library is available instantly.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
