Bring your TV audio to life with the Sonos Playbase. This soundplate features 10 integrated drivers that are each driven by digital class-D amplifiers, adding power and clarity to the sounds of your favorite movies, series, or games. You can use WiFi to link the device to your Sonos multi-room system. Add the Sonos Sub and 2 PLAY:1 speakers to create a wireless 5.1 set. This allows you to enjoy a deep bass, and means sound effects will come at you from all angles. You can simply place the soundplate underneath your TV. All you need to connect the PLAYBASE is an optical cable and a power cable.

Note: an option for voice control will be added in a future software update. This function doesn't work yet, and it's not yet known when the update will be available. One thing is sure: with this speaker, you're ready for the future.

Note: Sonos products don't use the 5GHz network, so always make sure your WiFi is installed on the 2.4GHz network before buying a Sonos product.
