Today I want to do a quick review of the Sonos play bar. This is a wireless soundbar, one of the more high-end ones, and I should mention before we get started though, that I found a pretty good deal on this soundbar, and I’ll put a link in the description below so you guys can check that deal out. So, right off the bat, I’ll tell you I’m not a sound bar guy. Well, I should say I wasn’t a sound bar guy. But I’d always been a firm believer in; you need bookshelf speakers or towers for any decent quality sound and home theater type scenario. But I will say, the Sonos is pretty amazing for what it is and how much it costs. It’s a little more pricey than certain soundbars, but the sound is honestly really, really good on this.
It has a clean look when mounted, and I was shocked at the amount of big sound that you can get out of a small system like this. The review I’m doing is for the play bar only, you can get it in a 3.1 home theater or a 5.1, but those are considerably more money. This one is just for the sound bar it doesn’t come with any subwoofer or anything like that. But I’ll tell you for music and movies; it’s amazing the sound that comes out of this thing. Of course, it’s one of those things you have to hear to appreciate, so it’s hard to convey. But the speaker quality is very, I don’t want to call it flat, but it’s very even. There’s not a lot of spikes in treble or base;
You can use this with your Amazon Echo or any Alexa device. It will stream Bluetooth for any If you want to do Spotify or anything really from your phone all wirelessly, which is cool. It has a Sonos app that you can install on your smartphone to control the whole thing optionally as well from there, which is cool. One thing I liked about this one too, it has a speech enhancement mode. What it does is I don’t know if you’re ever watching a movie and there’ll be an explosion and it’s super loud, so you turn your speaker’s down, but then when people start talking it’s so quiet that you can’t even hear them, this eliminates that and it works really good, and I was surprised at how beautiful that actually does work.
Anyway, as far as the subwoofer goes, I have a separate sub I’m not using the Sonos one, but you can buy a wireless several for separately for it later if you want or buy it as the package it doesn’t matter, either
