The Sonos Playbase adds powerful cinema sound to your movies, TV shows, sports and games, as well as wirelessly streaming your music. Its low profile design lets it sit discreetly under your television, even as it fills the room with spectacular sound with its ten amplified internal drivers– six midrange, three tweeters, and one woofer. Expand far beyond your TV's built-in speakers with deep bass, crystal-clear whispers, and huge waves of sound.
The Playbase is part of the Sonos wireless home sound system, which you can build up to fill as many rooms as you want with great sound. The Sonos app helps you quickly search through all your services to track down your favourite music, play it in different rooms, adjust the volume in each room, and other settings. You don't even have to be in the same room as a speaker.
Plug and Play
The Playbase is incredibly easy to set up. Simply connect the power cable, and the optical cable that connects to your TV, and the Sonos app will guide you through each step of the process, including connecting to WiFi so you can stream your favourite music. The Playbase uses a system called Trueplay to tune its sound to your room. Trueplay bounces sound off various surfaces in your TV room, analysing the distance from each wall, to adjust each woofer and tweeter to make sure perfectly-tuned sound reaches your ears from every direction, all at just the right instant and volume.
The Playbase uses custom drivers to deliver crisp, clear dialogue to the centre channel where your ears can hear it best. For more clarity, you can turn on Speech Enhancement to keep the dialogue at a consistent level and reduce the volume of any loud sound effects. For late night listening, there is Night Sound, so that, at lower volumes, quiet sounds are enhanced and the intensity of loud sounds is reduced.
The Playbase can securely support any TV up to 75lbs (34kg), which covers almost any television that comes with its own base. It also works with almost all TV, cable box, and universal remotes by learning their infrared commands during setup. The remotes you already have are all you need.
Grow to 5.1
The Playbase can be the beginning of an even larger home cinema experience. Add a Sonos SUB for deep, powerful bass, and use PLAY:1, PLAY:3 or PLAY:5 speakers for more channels, all the way up to 5.1.
