The SONOS Playbar offers richly textured HiFi sound for your home theater and can also wirelessly stream music from a variety of sources. It’s nine-speaker design provides full-theater sound for TV, web, movies, and video games.

The device is easy to set up, requiring just a power cord and optical cord (which are both provided) and it can sync with other SONOS speakers wirelessly.

Sonos Introduces Home Theater Speaker That Also Streams Music

The Playbar’s six mid-woofers provide deep low frequency sounds and three tweeters offer crystal clear high-frequency sounds. Built-in sensors automatically orient the audio channels to adjust the EQs for optimal sound. You can control the volume with your TV remote or one of the free apps for iPhone, iPad, or Android.

The ‘Night Sound’ feature dynamically compresses the audio, making loud bangs and crashes quieter so you don’t disturb anyone and making quieter sounds more audible. ‘Speech Enhancement’ boosts the frequency range of the human voice so it’s easier to hear all of the dialogue.

The Playbar also allows you to wirelessly stream music from your iTunes library, music services, and thousands of free Internet radio stations. You can play music stored on up to 16 PCs, Macs or NAS devices on your home network. Check it out in the video below:
