SONOS PlayBar, Sub and Play:3 Wireless 5.1 Surround Sound System Review

16 April 2013
  • Excerpt: When you're looking for better sound from your flat panel television, sound bars offer a seductive solution: subtle, sexy, self-contained speakers that promise to bring out the best in your favorite movies and TV shows. But for most soundbars, the promise of "surround sound" is an empty one.
  • Pros: SONOS platform is ideal for music lovers, Discrete 5.1 surround from compatible sources, Elegant looks, Wireless operation, A model of simplicity
  • Cons: Expensive, Single optical input, No DTS decoding, Limited by TVs in getting discrete 5.1 sound

Sonos SUB Review

5 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The Sonos SUB is a massively expensive subwoofer made to be part of the full wireless speaker family for an equally giant price: $699 right out of the box. You do get free shipping and unlimited support from Sonos, and we're to understand that there's a slightly less glossy version of this machine...

Sonos Sub Review

20 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Considering all that it offers, we can heartily recommend the Sonos Sub. And yeah, we realize that, at $699, it ain’t cheap. But no other sub that we’re aware of combines such a small form factor with this kind of potent, high-quality bass in one heck of an aesthetically pleasing package.
  • Pros: Powerful, potent bass for such a small sub, Excellent extension and impact, Force cancelling design eliminates unwanted vibrations, Solid, inert design, Easy to set up and use
  • Cons: Bass a little too thumpy at times, No standard line inputs, i.e. only compatible with Sonos gear

Review: Sonos Sub

12 October 2012
  • Pros: Sound is excellent, on par with the rest of Sonos’ speakers. Well-designed dual-driver subwoofer with dual class-D amps offer efficient and distortion-free boom. Sleek looks make the 16-inch-tall box disappear into your ultra-modern decor. Just over 6 inches tall when laid flat, so it can slip un...
  • Cons: That’s a lot of Simoleons. The tall, square-shaped doughnut design can be too bulky for some rooms, even laid flat.

Free Bass'n

Gear Patrol
25 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Sonos’ Play:3 wireless HiFi speakers were a huge hit when they were first released in the middle of last year. Great sounding audio quality from a wireless product isn’t always guaranteed, but the Play:3 did the trick.

Sonos Sub

26 June 2012
  • Summary: The Sonos Sub provides an instant upgrade to your Sonos Play speaker system, but it's quite pricey.
  • Pros: The, has a unique, eye-catching design and its wireless function works from anywhere in a room (though it does have to be plugged in). It really augments the sound of your Play speakers and the setup is a breeze.
  • Cons: Its finish doesn't match any other Sonos components and the Sub doesn't work as well with the Connect: Amp. It's expensive and won't work outside of a Sonos system.

Sonos Sub review

19 June 2012
  • Conclusion: It's a lot to pay for a subwoofer that can't be used with non-Sonos hardware. If you can swing the cost, though, you'll get a tremendous boost to sound quality that integrates smoothly with a full Sonos network.
  • Pros: Deep, tight bass, Easy setup, Unique design
  • Cons: Very expensive, Can't be used with non-Sonos gear, Dust magnet
