Make everything on your TV sound awesome with the Sonos Playbase. Whatever you are watching gets an exceptional audio treatment through this mighty 10-speaker unit. And it can stream music direct from the internet when the TV's off. Built to sit neatly underneath the TV, it can support a TV with its own stand of up to 35kg. Slip it into your existing Sonos set up, or add additional Sonos speakers to pump the sound throughout the home. Whether films, games, programmes or your favourite tunes, the Playbase will ensure it all sounds simply stunning.
Ten individual speakers, including three tweeters and one woofer, give the sound of your TV an awesome makeover with amazingly rich detail. High octane action sequences are powerfully realistic and pulse-pounding, orchestral performances and delicate whispers are crystal clear.

The Playbase is engineered for optimal sound delivery when placed under a TV. Its minimal design means it elegantly fades into the background, while filling the whole room with exceptional audio. Speech Enhancement mode ensures all dialogue is crystal clear, while the Night Sound setting means no-one else in the house gets disturbed. Using the TRUEPLAY feature in the Sonos App, you can custom tune this speaker for finely-balanced sound enrichments based on speaker positioning, even when it’s incorporated in a full Sonos home cinema setup.
Amazing as a standalone sound bar, you can enhance the experience even more by adding a Sonos SUB or rear speakers (two Play 1s or two Sonos Ones) to the mix (additional speakers sold separately).

This California-based company has spent most of its near 15-year history selling high-end speakers to studio professionals and cash-rich audiophiles. Their flair for sublime sound engineering led them to break the mainstream market in 2013, with their wireless Multiroom range.
Cracking a balance of simplicity, stunning sound and game-changing tech, Sonos has since become a key player in the home audio market. They’ve adapted their studio-quality pedigree into an affordable range, that delivers house-filling sound for more casual listeners. Supplemented by a slick app, Sonos is one of the market-leaders in Multiroom technology.More from Sonos
