The Home Sound System

Sonos speakers fill your entire home with music. Use one app to stream different music in different rooms. Or send one song all through the house.One simple app brings together all your favourite music services, and lets you control everything – from songs to volume to rooms.


Widescreen sound and music streaming for TVs on stands and furniture.

Main Features

  • Two-in-one. Full-theatre sound for your TV. Streams music, too.
  • Low profile design that practically disappears. Sound you just can’t miss.
  • Securely supports TVs up to 35 kg.
  • Simple two-cord setup. One for power, one for your TV.
  • Add SUB and two PLAY:1 rears for wireless 5.1 surround sound.

Everything sounds better on PLAYBASE.

Movies, sports, TV shows, gaming – the slim, low profile PLAYBASE adds dynamic, pulse-pounding sound to whatever’s playing when your TV’s on. And streams your favourite music when it’s off.

An off-the-wall approach to better TV sound.

Typical soundbars work best when wall-mounted directly below a TV. Truth is, most TVs end up on stands and furniture – exactly what PLAYBASE was created for. Its low profile design practically disappears beneath your TV, yet it fills your entire viewing room with epic home cinema audio.

Two cords. That’s it.

One power cord. And one optical cord for your TV. You don’t even have to read the manual; the Sonos app guides you through every step of set up.

Send TV sound all around.

PLAYBASE makes movies, sports, games, and music come alive… in one room. Add more Sonos speakers and you can listen to what’s playing on your TV in any room.

Movies and music to the power of 10.

Ten amplified internal drivers–six mid-range, three tweeters, and one woofer–replace the limited output of your TV’s built-in speakers with deeper booms, crystal clear whispers, and huge waves of sound.

Custom tune your PLAYBASE.

With Trueplay you can set your home theatre speakers up however you want – and know they’re going to sound amazing.

Additional Features


Keeps dialogue volume consistent while reducing the intensity of loud sound effects. So you can clearly understand even the faintest whisper.


Don’t want to disturb the rest of the house? Turn on Night Sound. At lower volumes, quiet sounds get a slight boost while loud ones are automatically reduced.


Cable boxes. Gaming consoles. Satellite boxes. Blu-ray players. If it’s connected to your TV, PLAYBASE will play it.


PLAYBASE securely supports TVs up to 35 kg. 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 one room. Add more Sonos speakers to your home and 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 theatre experience. Add a Sonos SUB for soul-shaking bass. Want full surround sound? Use a pair of PLAY:1, PLAY:3 or PLAY:5 speakers for rear channels.

More Options For Home Theatre Sound

3.0 Home Theatre: Connect PLAYBASE to your TV with an included optical digital cable for clean, clear sound from TV shows and movies.

3.1 Home Theatre: Pair a Sonos SUB with PLAYBASE to add bass impact to your home theatre system. The SUB pairs wirelessly with the PLAYBASE with the touch of a button, making it simple to enjoy full-range sound.

5.1 Home Theatre: Add a pair of Sonos PLAY:5, PLAY:3,or PLAY:1 speakers or a Sonos Connect:Amplifier with your choice of speakers (including custom installation in-wall or in-ceiling speakers) to the PLAYBASE and SUB for a complete, wraparound home theatre experience. Like the SUB, the PLAY:5, PLAY:3 & PLAY:1 speakers or Sonos Connect:Amplifier wirelessly connect to the PLAYBASE so you don’t have to run speaker wire around your room (Except for the Sonos Connect:Amplifier which will require speaker cable from the amplifier to your choice of speakers). Each speaker becomes a separate left and right rear channel for distinct surround sound effects.

Add a SUB.

Wirelessly connect SUB to PLAYBASE and add more boom to your cinematic experience—with the push of a button. Since PLAYBASE doesn’t have to handle bass anymore, it can focus on producing even better mid-range and high frequencies.

Soul-shaking sound. Heart-pounding design. One-button setup. The Sonos SUB Wireless Subwoofer delivers rich, deep bass with Hi-Fi sound.

The SUB works with all Sonos amplified components. It features two Class-D digital amplifiers and two force-cancelling speakers positioned face-to-face to eliminate any cabinet buzz or rattle. If one room or one speaker isn’t enough, you can expand wirelessly by adding Sonos speakers all over your home. You can enjoy multi-room simultaneous streaming or you can listen to a different music source in each room. For added flexibility, you can control your SUB remotely via most Apple, Windows, and Android devices.

One app. Complete music control.

The Sonos app helps you quickly search through all your services to track down favourite music, send it to different rooms, and adjust the volume and other settings. You don’t even have to be in the same room. For everyone in the house, and all their devices—smartphones, tablets, and computers. When friends come over they can download the app and play DJ, too.

Room control.

Hip hop for the kitchen, soul for the living room and classic rock for the bedroom – now you can set the right mood in any room. Mix it up with different songs in different rooms or choose “group all” to hear the same beat throughout your home. You can also crank up the volume for each room individually or together.

Start in any room. Add on.

Play different songs in different rooms. Or the same song everywhere.

Access to music.

Music services. Your personal music library. Internet radio. Podcasts. The Sonos app puts them all in one place so you can listen to the songs and stations you love. Without switching between apps.

Over 30 music streaming services available.

Sonos was created by music lovers. For music lovers. Which means we want Sonos to play absolutely all the music you love…no matter where it comes from. The Internet for streaming services, radio, and podcasts. Plus that personal collection of music downloads you’ve got stored on your computer, phone and tablet.

Sonos plays everything–the most popular streaming services, on-demand services, Internet radio, your favourite podcasts and audiobooks, your go-to collection of downloads­–whatever you love to listen to. Free. Premium. Selected On-demand. The list of streaming music services on Sonos keeps growing. Some names you’ll recognise right away. Others may be less familiar, but still worth exploring.

PLAYBASE TV Placement Guidelines

Single Foot Stands

Make sure your TV stand rests completely on your PLAYBASE with no overhang. Securely supports any screen up to 35 kg.

What works

Single foot and continuous frames.

What doesn’t

Stands with unstable legs.

Split Foot Stands

PLAYBASE fits conveniently between the legs of most TVs stands with separate feet.

What works

Feet must be at least 2.3” (58mm) tall to allow for PLAYBASE clearance.

What doesn’t

Legs that are either too close together or too low to provide full clearance.

Work Arounds & Watch Outs

Consider a TV stand with shelves. Or place inside a cabinet.

For best acoustics, set your PLAYBASE toward the front with 2” of clearance on each side.

Watch Outs

Don’t place objects lighter than 2.3 kg on top of your PLAYBASE. The sound may send them flying.
