Your TV - your movies and your music with sound you’ll feel. All from a speaker you’ll hardly notice. The Sonos PLAYBASE in black.

Modern flat-screen TV audio leaves a lot to be desired. Especially when it’s movie time. The all new PLAYBASE adds pulse-pounding - full-theater sound to all your movies - as well as TV shows - sports and games. AND it wirelessly streams all your favourite music - too.

It’s slim - low-profile design practically disappears beneath your TV - and yet it fills your entire viewing room with spectacular sound you just can’t miss.

The PLAYBASE is an ideal way to start with your Sonos system - the wireless Home Sound System that fills as many rooms as you want with great-sounding tunes. It can just as easily be added to an existing system - too. With the simple setup taken care of via the intuitive Sonos app. The box contains all you need to get started - including the power cable - optical audio cable.

Movies and music to the power of 10.
PLAYBASE uses ten amplified internal drivers. That’s six midrange - three tweeters - and one woofer. Combined - these replace the less powerful output of your TV's built-in speakers with deep booms - crystal clear whispers - and huge waves of sound.

An off-the-wall approach to better TV sound.
Conventional soundbars work best when wall-mounted directly below your TV. That’s clearly a problem if your TV isn’t on the wall - too. PLAYBASE to the rescue. It has an elegant - low-profile design so that it practically disappears beneath your TV. And yet - it fills your entire viewing room with sound that’s flat out amazing.

Trueplay - custom speaker-tuning for your PLAYBASE.
Trueplay bounces sound off various surfaces in your TV room - analyzing the distance from each wall - the location of your PLAYBASE - and the spot you love to watch from. Then it adjusts each woofer and tweeter to make sure perfectly-tuned sound reaches your ears from every direction at just the right instant and volume. You can do this easily as part of the setup or at any time after if you move the PLAYBASE or remodel your room.

Never obsolete.
Sonos are committed to their products. Software updates mean the product you buy today - will be even better tomorrow.

One app. Complete music control.
The Sonos app helps you quickly search through all your services to track down favourite music - easily send it to different rooms - and adjust the volume and other settings. You don’t even have to be in the same room - just as long as your on the same WiFi network. And when your friends are round for dinner and they have the Sonos app - they can do the same.

Over 30 music streaming services available.
Sonos plays everything from the most popular streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music - to on-demand Internet radio - your favourite podcasts and even audiobooks. Whatever you love to listen to - you can play it on your Sonos.

Dialogue enhancement.
Having a hard time hearing what’s being said? PLAYBASE uses custom drivers to deliver crisp - clear dialogue to the centre channel where your ears can best discern it. If you need even more clarity - simply turn on Speech Enhancement to keep the dialogue at a consistent level and reduce the volume of any loud sound effects.

Night mode.
Late night Netflix binge and don’t want to disturb the rest of the house? Turn on Night Sound. At lower volumes - quiet sounds are enhanced and the intensity of loud sounds is reduced.

Plays everything.
Cable boxes. Gaming consoles. Satellite boxes. Blu-ray players. If it’s connect to your TV - PLAYBASE will play it. Brilliant sound for all devices.

Expand beyond the TV room.
PLAYBASE makes movies - sports - TV - games - and music come alive in your TV room. Simply add more Sonos speakers to your home and then you can listen to what’s playing on your TV - in any room.

Grows to 5.1 with zero drama.
PLAYBASE is just the beginning of your ultimate home theatre experience. Want soul-shaking bass? Add a Sonos SUB. Want full surround sound? Use a pair of PLAY:1 - PLAY:3 or PLAY:5 speakers for rear channels. All can be added and paired simply and quickly from the Sonos app.

One less remote to worry about.
The remotes you have are all you need. PLAYBASE works with almost all TV - cable box - and universal remotes by learning their infrared (IR) commands during setup. Couldn’t be simpler!
