The Soundbar for Music Lovers

The Playbar couldn’t be simpler. It hooks up to the TV via a single cable and doesn’t come with a hefty subwoofer like other home cinema solutions. That means it takes up far less space. Sonos says it still packs a hefty punch, with nine individually amplified speakers, meaning games, movies and TV shows should sound sensational.

What’s more the Sonos Playbar can be controlled via a standard TV remote, or using the dedicated Sonos apps for iOS, Android, Mac and PC. Using the latter means you’ll also be able to play your music wirelessly, including your own, locally-stashed tracks, or streamed from services such as Spotify, Rdio and Napster.

The Playbar can also be hooked up to other Sonos kit, including the Sonos Hub and Sonos Play:3 to create a fully wireless home cinema system.


- Complements HD television screens with richly textured HiFi sound.
- Wirelessly streams all the music on earth.
- Simple to set up, control and expand. Requires just two cords: one power cord, one optical cord (both included).
- Syncs with other Sonos speakers wirelessly.
- Understands and works with most IR remotes and can be controlled by free apps for your Android®, iPhone® or iPad®.
- Plays all sources plugged in to your HD TV: satellite boxes, Blu-Ray players, and video game consoles. If it’s connected to your HD TV, PLAYBAR will play it.
