The soundbar for music lovers.
HDTVs offer an amazing picture but often lack the powerful, realistic sounds that movie, music, and gaming enthusiasts enjoy. The SONOS PLAYBAR wireless soundbar delivers sophisticated home theater acoustics and wirelessly streams all the music on earth through one streamlined, easy-to-use soundbar.
FILL YOUR HOME WITH MUSIC
Easily expand your Sonos wireless audio system: set up Sonos in one room, then add as many Sonos speakers as you wish to enjoy HiFi audio throughout the entire house.
For Your TV
For Your Whole House
3.0 Home Theater
PLAYBAR connects to your TV with a single cable and plays all sources, including satellite boxes and game consoles.
3.1 Home Theater
Pair PLAYBAR with SONOS SUB and with the push of a button you can add spine-curling bass to your cinematic experience – wirelessly.
5.1 Home Theater
Add SUB and a PLAY:1 pair to your PLAYBAR for a true surround sound experience wrapping you in deeply immersive, crystal clear, state of the art Sonos sound.
You can use PLAYBAR alone or extend the Sonos experience beyond the TV room by adding as many Sonos players throughout your home as you wish. Play different songs in one room or blast the same song everywhere, in perfect party sync.
DESIGN & ENGINEERING
The nine-speaker design (six mid woofer, three tweeter) of SONOS PLAYBAR complements cinematic HD televisions with richly textured HiFi sound for TV, web, movies, or video games.
It automatically adjusts to the differences between shoot-'em-up action flicks, Shakespearean dramas, and live concerts to deliver the sound as it was intended.
For after-hours viewing, Night Mode compresses the volume so you can hear all the details without waking the family.
The PLAYBAR plays all sources plugged into your TV: cable and satellite boxes, Blu-ray players, and video game consoles-through the single optical input on the back. It also plays all common audio formats from TVs, including Dolby Digital 2.0, Dolby Digital 5.1, and PCM.
EASY TO CONTROL
Hardware and software custom-designed by Sonos to produce rich, powerful HiFi sound that's crystal clear at any volume.
Play music from any device stored on your Android* smartphone or tablet, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch wirelessly to your Sonos system.
Control Every Room
Play the same song in every room, in perfect sync– or play different music in every room–from any source.
*Music downloaded through Google Play must still be synced to your computer.
EASY TO SETUP
PLAYBAR is quick and easy to set up. Just plug the power cord in, attach the optical cord to your TV and connect to your router or the SONOS BRIDGE (sold separately).

One Sonos component must be connected to your router using a standard Ethernet cable.
