Sonos Playbase Sound Base Speaker
Your TV’s got the video part nailed. But the audio? That leaves a lot to be desired. Especially when it’s movie time. Game time. Music time. Come to think of it, any time. The all new PLAYBASE adds pulse-pounding, full-cinema sound to all your movies, TV shows, sports and games–and it wirelessly streams your favourite music, too. Its slim, low profile design practically vanishes beneath your TV, yet it fills your entire viewing room with spectacular widescreen sound you just can’t miss. It is part of Sonos, the wireless Home Sound System that fills as many rooms as you want with great-sounding tunes. It’s the new, better way to fill each day with the sounds you love.
• TV sound and music you can feel, from a speaker that blends into your room's design effortlessly.
• Two-in-one. Adds cinema sound for your TV. And streams music, too.
• Simple two-cable setup. One connects to the power. One connects to your TV.
• Works with your existing TV remote.
• Syncs wirelessly with SUB and two PLAY:1s for 5.1 surround sound.
• Design that fits neatly under your TV. Sound you just can’t miss.
Feel the heart and soul of your movies and music. PLAYBASE uses ten amplified internal drivers – six midrange, three tweeters, and one woofer – to replace the dull drip 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. The problem is, most TVs aren’t on walls. They’re standing on sideboards and cabinets. PLAYBASE to the rescue! Its elegant, low-profile design that fits neatly under your TV, 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, analysing 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, all at just the right instant and volume. Never obsolete. 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 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. And if your friends have the Sonos app, they can do the same. Over 30 music streaming services available. Sonos plays everything: the most popular streaming services, on-demand internet radio, your favourite podcasts and audiobooks, your go-to collection of downloads—whatever you love to listen to. Speech 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 hear it best. Need even more clarity? Turn on Speech Enhancement to keep the dialogue at a consistent level and reduce the volume of any loud sound effects. Night Mode. Watching late at night 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. Two cables. And that’s it. One power cable. And one optical cable that connects to your TV. You don’t even have to read a manual. The Sonos app guides you through each step of the setup process, including connecting PLAYBASE to your WiFi so you can stream your favourite music. Plays everything. Freeview boxes. Gaming consoles. Satellite boxes. Blu-ray players. If it’s connected to your TV, PLAYBASE will play it. All-encompassing sound. No wall mount required. PLAYBASE securely supports TVs up to 75 lbs. Which covers just about any TV that comes with its own stand. Expand beyond the TV room. PLAYBASE makes movies, sports, TV, games, and music come alive… but just in the room that it’s in. Add more Sonos speakers to different rooms in 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 the ultimate home cinema experience. Add a Sonos SUB for soul-shaking bass. PLAYBASE works with almost all TV, cable box, and universal remotes by learning their infrared (IR) commands during setup. The remotes you already have are all you need.
