    3 years later, action films are still unwatchable, June 18, 2018

    We have had the Playbar for 3 years and still can not recommend this as a good purchase. The crux of the issue is volume imbalance in films. Spoken dialogue is too quiet while action scenes are window-shaking loud. It doesn’t matter if it is Netflix, Hulu, or movies, we have to turn up the volume during spoken dialogue scenes and then scramble to turn down the volume when a gunshot, explosion, or similar happens. This has been an issue reported by countless users on Sonos forums, still unsolved to date.

    Sonos claims that their Trueplay Tuning, Night Mode, and Speech Enhancement features address this, but we and many others confirm they certainly do not.

    It’s a shame that an otherwise very nicely executed soundbar fails so dramatically at doing the very basic thing it should: improve the sound from your TV.

    Bottom line: spend your $700 somewhere else.

    TV and movies sound great, but I have rediscovered music with this!, January 31, 2018

    I bought this sound bar to go with my 65″ OLED TV so I would get great sound while watching movies. It achieved that goal, but what I never expected was how good music sounds on this and how nice the Sonos app is for finding music. I paired it with a Sonos subwoofer which I highly recommend and now there are nights where I never turn the TV on, but just listen to albums I loved from my past and new music. Totally delightful.

    HEARING IS BELIEVING! This sound bar is terrific (please get the subwoofer too)., September 9, 2017

    I have a JVC high definition TV with better than average sound. However, whenever I watch a British show, I have to use closed caption. I purchased a Samsung sound bar with wireless subwoofer. The sound is noticeably better, but I still need CC. On top of that, I am a passionate audiophile and a drummer? I was interested in having a system that projected resonant vocals, as well as the full range of instrumental sounds. I ordered the Sonos Playbar TV sound bar and the SUB wireless subwoofer. After a nobrainer install, I downloaded the Sonos app, which is intuitive, holds all my Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music songs, etc. which are easily accessed, and my TV remote volume control manages both TV and streaming audio. Hookup involves an optical-digital connection. The supplied cord is short and I replaced it with a 6 ‘ cord.
    No problems so far. The audio quality from the PLAYBAR is superb, but bass tones are greatly enhanced by the subwoofer, which is a costly, but in my opinion mandatory purchase. Using the PLAYBAR/SUB tandem, streamed music sounds “in person.” I may get a couple of the Sonos play 1 speakers to arrange a surround setup. Anyone who criticizes the price of these items, might also criticize Festool for selling a miter saw for almost $1500. The saw is virtually dustless, just as the soundbar/subwoofer is virtually flawless. Value is a very personal thing. For me Sonos has satisfied my requisites for a very pleasurable listening experience. The system is highly recommended.
