The Sonos Playbar is the soundbar for music lovers!
The Sonos Playbar:
- Complements HD television screens with highly detailed, richly textured sound.
- Uses your WiFi, easy to set up and expand your system over time.
- Requires just two cords: one power cord, one optical cord (both included).
- Understands and speaks most IR remote’s language and can be controlled by free apps for your Android®, iPhone® or iPad®.
- Plays all sources plugged in to your HDTV: cable/SAT boxes, Blu-Ray players, and video game consoles. If it’s connected to your HDTV, PLAYBAR will play it.
Epic Sound for Your Television
PLAYBAR’s nine-speaker driver soundbar design floods your home with huge waves of epic, full-theater sound for TV, Web, Movies and Video Games.
All the music on earth
PLAYBAR doubles up not only as a soundbar but also as a stand-alone all-in-one Sonos player that allows you to wirelessly stream all the music on earth—your iTunes library, your favorite music services, and thousands of Internet radio stations, shows and podcasts.
PLAYBAR connects to your TV using a single optical cable and power cord and plays everything that is connected to your TV, from cable boxes to gaming consoles.
No rewiring required. Connect PLAYBAR to your home WiFi network using the free Sonos Controller App.
The PLAYBAR’s long, thin soundbar shape allows it to sit easily above or beneath your TV on a table or a console, or to be wall-mounted.
PLAYBAR speaks DOLBY DIGITAL and stereo, so you never miss a moment of the action.
Nine Class-D digital amplifiers perfectly tuned to match the speaker drivers and acoustic architecture.
Not louder. Clearer. With nine amplified speaker drivers, six midrange and three tweeters, PLAYBAR replaces the steady drip of your TV’s built-in speakers with deep booms, crystal-clear whispers, and huge waves of live concert sound. And with automatic equalization, the system self-adjusts for rich, seamless performance.
