When we think that having a sound base in the living room could be an answer to all our wishes, we usually realise that can be a problem – most of today's TV's simply won't fit on top of them.


A sound base is a flat box of a speaker designed to sit underneath a TV. Many of today's TV's are supported by legs splayed far to either side, and most of the standard existing sound bases simply don't fit.

The Sonos Playbase is a lot different from most of the standard sound bases. It is only two inches high and, therefore, it is perfect to be placed under any of the standard TV sets.

It is simply the best home theater component Sonos has created. Its looks is absolutely clean and gorgeous. Plus, while most of the sound bars need an optional sub speaker, the Playbase does perfectly well without it.

The device includes six midrange drivers, three tweeters and a woofer feeding a bass port, which the company calls the S-tube. This port runs through the chassis of the device, giving the unit its weighty bass response while also cooling the components.

It uses Wi-Fi to stream music from services and network using Sonos whole-home system. Furthermore, Wi-Fi, ethernet and optical cable are the only connections allowed by the Playbase.

There are many options in the market today, for home-theater sound devices. When compared, however, to the clean sounds from the Sonos Playbase, we notice the differences between all of them. It stands out by its sonic scale and the transparent and precise audio elude most other sound bars and bases.

The american manufacturer has set its price for USD 699. We could think it's a bit expensive but, when compared to other options, we can easily say it is one of the best choices available.
