Q & As

Sonos Playbar Home Cinema Sound Bar 4.5 5 22 22
SONOS great service disappointing Purchased this item from Peterborough branch but have to say that we ended up audition on our own as the staff when they finally took notice of us did not have a clue how to work any of the items on show. We were interested in many models none of which were available to listen to, items from Canton and Q Acoustics to name only 2. They could only put the BOSE into demo mode, and personally i do not trust a selection of carefully chosen acoustics samples that are best suited to the manufacturers model as a true account of the product. 30 November 2014
sonos music/tv kit have replaced all of my mismatched music separates, plus installed home theatre for the TV with Sonos. it is easy to install and works straight out of the box- no wires and no fuss, and we now have speakers in every room that can be set to play independently of each other, or not! the soundbar & Sub-woofer make the TV viewing experience much richer. the only snag was finding out how to turn off the TV's (old panasonic viera) internal speakers, but a search of the forums found a solution. now to box up the CD collection! 19 October 2014
Sonos purchases Music music music all round the house fantastic sounds and volume out of this world 20 August 2014
SOUNDS LIKE LIFT / SUPERMARKET MUSIC I thought this sounded quite good in the John Lewis store but I must say I am disappointed with the lack of clarity or high fidelity. Quite good for movies but not really great. Disappointing. 18 July 2014
Fabulous piece of kit! For anyone looking to improve the sound quality from their TV this is so much better than some of the other products on the market. If you have other Sonos components then the playbar is a great addition to the family. Plug and play with the TV, very easy setup. We had some issues with the 55" Samsung Series 8 TV giving out the error message about external sound source selected when trying to adjust the volume with the TV remote however a quick internet search taught us how to overcome that problem. Sounds fabulous, looks fabulous, great piece of kit! 28 June 2014
Sound Bar for the lounge Sound quality at the mid and high volume is superb, at the low end only marginally better than my TV speakers. The soundbar really delivers on its ablity to play music through the sonos network. Favourite features are the night time and speech options on the app controller! 17 June 2014
Amazing product Awesome clarity sound. Drawbacks of the soundbar are, doesn't play DTS so some DVDs/Blu-Rays don't have full audio support and also the IR sensor for using your existing TV remote is not very good/temperamental to say the least. If they weren't an issue for me then definitely a 5 star product! 28 May 2014
Get the sonos playbar from John Lewis! John Lewis gave an excellent demonstration of the power of Sonos. This system is incredible and coming with a 2 year warranty from John Lewis and free delivery makes it worth every penny. It performs across a range of programming, ensuring that you find and enjoy the value of supreme sonic enjoyment to improve your entertainment experience! 26 May 2014
