Sonos Playbase Product Overview

<= Back


What’s on your TV is only as good as what it’s on. The Sonos Playbase adds dynamic, pulse-pounding sound to whatever is playing when your TV is on, and streams your favorite music when it’s off. With a low profile, the Playbase is nearly unnoticeable, all the while filling the room with high quality home theater sound.

TruePlay can utilize the psychoacoustics within the room, making any room sound exactly how it’s supposed to be.

Touch-interface controls & lights
Capacitive touch controls for volume up/down, previous/next track, and play/pause.
LED indicates Sonos component status and mute status.


Multiroom compatible Soundbase. Plays music in multiple rooms at once.

Multiroom control. If you have multiple network-enabled Sonos speakers, you can control what’s playing in any room from anywhere in your house via free mobile app.

Complete music control. Download the free Sonos Controller app to search instantly through all your music services and find the songs you love, send them to different rooms, and adjust the volume and other settings for each room.

Voice control. Works with Amazon Alexa.

Apple® AirPlay support. With AirPlay, stream directly from your Apple devices or ask Siri to play your favorites from Apple Music throughout your home.

Over 30 streaming services available. PLAYBASE plays absolutely all the music you love – no matter where it comes from. The Internet for streaming services, radio, podcasts, and your personal collection of music downloads.

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 speakers with deeper booms, crystal clear whispers, and huge waves of sound.

Custom tune your PLAYBASE. With Trueplay technology you can set your home theater speakers up however you want – and know they’re going to sound amazing.

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

Night Sound setting. 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.

Widescreen sound. No wall mount required. PLAYBASE securely supports TVs up to 77 lbs. Which covers just about any TV that comes with its own stand.

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.
