Great sound and outstanding customer service and support
I have had a Sonos Playbar and Gen 2 Sub for a couple of years now. I love the sound with the TV and when playing my music through Spotify. It is well made, looks great and the software is terrific. The ability to expand through your house with other speakers in the EcoSystem just adds more value to the Sonos proposition.
About 2 weeks ago I noticed a soft high pitched coming from the Playbar. It was happening when playing music etc and when it was off. It was extremely annoying. I tried resetting the device but this didnt fix the problem. I ...ended up calling Sonos Support and they were fantastic. I ran a diagnostic on their request and this was sent to the Sonos consultant automatically. He advised this fault had occurred with some other Playbars and he advised they would replace the device even though it was outside warranty. I packaged up and sent back using the Sonos RA and Australia Post. All was very easy. Sonos received the returned Playbar and within 8 days I had a replacement Playbar which is working a treat. Thank you Sonos!! I am a customer for life! Outstanding Sound and Products!

Great sounding bar with excellent software
Always had been more of a HiFi person and the thought of a soundbar seemed just not right.
When I moved into my new house I created a secondary small living area and decided to put a Sonos in there as all it had to do would be better than the tv speakers (not hard)
Surprised myself at how good the sound is for tv viewing with decent bass and clear vocals.
Even better is the Music playback via the app which is easy to use and streams flawlessly
So impressed I bought a Sonos one

Go no further.
The quality of this product is unquestionable. Build quality and sound quality are amazing. The ecosystem this product can fit in with is another huge positive. Easy to connect with most TVs and makes even a cheap TV sound great.

The sound quality is clean and crisp and second to none. The set up is very easy and works over WiFi. I highly recommend the sound bar. The only drawback is no support for Bluetooth however truly blown away by the sound quality when paired with the subwoofer.

I have a few different Sonos speakers and have never had any issue. Easy to install and the sound is great. The app works well. Love Sonos products. Highly recommend
So easy to install
I am not tech savvy and paranoid about setting this myself. All I did was connect the cables - though finding the digital audio line or output from my TV was the hardest part of the exercise- the app did all the rest. Great sound quality.

Good integration with other Sonos products
Bought this to complement my other Sonos speakers. It has a good design that easily fits to any home decor. Sound quality is full and it can get very loud (sorry neighbors)! The price is quite high but you mostly get a high quality premium product.

Love the sound, but not the way it has to be used.
I have a sound bar, sub woofer and two SONOS one's that I use as surround. It also wakes me up in the morning with either a radio station, music from my phone or a music App. However I find the system so frustrating when for some reason it looses connection to the modem if when everything else is connected. I just wish that I could just play music straight from my phone or iPod, when my internet is not working. Why,why why does everything need to have internet to work. If I knew this was going to be such an issue when I bought it I would have bought a BOSE instead.

Best love it
I bought it from jb Hi fi month ago with 2 sonos 1. I love the sound quality it is awesome easy to pair with another device. I am really happy with it really nice.
Amazing sound bar!
I was initially hesitant to buy this sound bar for a really large rumpus room as I’ve read that it’s on the small side however couldn’t be happier with my purchase. The sound is amazing, I use it for gaming, movies and listening to music love it!

Amazing Quality. Build quality is 1st class. Sound quality is perfect. Not bulky but a good solid size. Wi-Fi connection works a charm. Never ages always looks modern and classic. Mine is wall mounted and no issues at all.

Great sound, easy to use, connection software is old and a little outdated, but other than that fantastic, looks great and suits any style, fantastic with the surround sound set up

Playbar punches out the best sound with effects in large a room
I have 2 Playbars in different parts of my house and i love how you can control the sound level from the App on your Phone or I-Pad. Just plug in and 4approx 2 minutes set up and away you go. I have also go the Sub woffer and Sonos Play 1, Play 3 and Play 5. Great in the theater room, Excellect sound effects, I.e. Top Gun when the fighter plan takes off the Aircaft carrier !!
Bought the Sonos Playbar for Xmas. Sound is amazing, can't believe how we were listening to TV speakers for years. We already had 2 Sonos Play 1 in the house and we bought their Playbar as well so that everything works together smoothly.
From design perspective I probably like Bose Playbar more, but the Sonos one is nice too.
great quality sound without all the hassles of wires
Never have to listen to the tv speakers again..
this device is slim and space saving.. wife appeal is high as it replaces my existing floorstanding/central speakers..
produces great sound.. simple setup.. just plug n play (will need Ethernet connection to setup) but once setup can use wifi..
pair with play 1 and sonos sub to enhance the audio to a surround sound setup..
doesn't have the new craze of google assistant, alexa or the like.. so can't be controlled via voice yet :P
Questions & Answers
Currently I have 5.1 running in the lounge. It’s big and bulky. I have no doubt the quality for theatre will be good. Music wise, I use a Bose sound dock in the loungeroom, which I would like to get rid of. How’s the sound quality on this? I won’t be heading out to buy the sub super quickly due to initial costs. Many thanks!
The sound from the sonos system is awesome we have the sound bar in front of the TV a sub woofer and two surrounds. The sound bar connects to the TV with a optic cable and the whole sydney runs on WiFi and you can add lots of apps like Spotify, iTunes and your favourite radio stations from any where in the world. I do however get very frustrated with the system when the Internet goes out as you can't do anything with it then other than user it with the TV
Great. Thanks for the info
I have the sound bar downstairs with a mini speaker at opposite end of room, sound is great very full. The speaker upstairs in bedroom sounds like 1/2 of a stereo system...getting predominatley background music and faint lyrics. Will adding another mini speaker in the bedroom give me fuller sound? At times I cannot even hear he lyrics....
I suspect there is interference between the mini speaker and the music source. Wiring or insulation material perhaps? Have you tried moving the equipment around? SONOS are very supportive so you could call them for advice.
You are comparing a commodore Hsv SSV supercharged to a base model 6 cylinder in this case.
The playbar has more speakers,lower Hz and better response rate plus you have another speaker for the rear.
So of course you will think the speaker sound in the bedroom is less than it should,because it is!
You are best to tune the smaller speaker to your room.
Or a stereo pair of play1 will most probably suit your needs in the bedroom.
