About - Sonos Playbar

A 5.1-channel-ready sound bar and Wi-Fi speaker system that features a three-channel front-speaker array that provides decoding of standard digital-audio signals. For set-up, the Playbar must be connected to a home network via an Ethernet cable, or using a Wi-Fi connection to another Ethernet-connected Sonos component, such as the Sonos Bridge. When connected to the Internet and a home network it can access online music content from providers such as Tunein, Pandora, Spotify, Amazon Cloud Player, Rhapsody, etc., or stream music content from a network connected PC or Apple iOS devices. It can also be used as part of a multi-room Wi-Fi based Sonos speaker configuration.

Sonos - Great Product
Best Uses
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….
