Until recently it was difficult to bring flawless theater sound into your living room. Luckily, those days are over! Not everyone has the space for a soundbar and a subwoofer. The PLAYBASE fits discreetly under your television and blends right in with the rest of your entertainment system. But the sound is anything but discreet – ten internal drivers work together to deliver a full sonic experience. And if you want even more sound, you can expand your system at any time with more speakers from SONOS. The only thing left to say: lights, camera, action!

  • Precise sound: You can easily stream music from your library using your smartphone. The volume of movies and TV shows can be controlled using the remote. Six mid-range drivers and three tweeters deliver crisp dialogue and complex playback of acoustically charged scenes. With the integrated woofer you can feel action-packed scenes in your bones.
  • Surround sound: Do you already own other PLAY speakers? When you connect a SUB and two PLAY speakers with your PLAYBASE, you can experience breathtaking 5.1 surround sound in your own home.
  • Always up to date: The SONOS system is constantly improving, thanks to regular software updates.
  • Trueplay technology: The PLAYBASE supports SONOS’s Trueplay software. This technology analyzes the unique properties of your room and then uses the information to individually set the frequencies of each driver. This ensures that you always have the best possible sonic experience.
  • Amazon Alexa: If you already have a SONOS One or Amazon Echo device, you can control your SONOS sound system using voice commands given to Alexa.
  • Night Sound: Experience full sound at night without disturbing the whole house. The integrated Night Sound mode automatically boosts quieter sounds and softens loud ones.

The SONOS PLAYBASE in action

Inconspicuous design and impressive movie theater sound all in one – with the SONOS PLAYBASE you can immerse yourself in other worlds. You can play from your music library using your smartphone or use more than 30 supported music streaming services to listen to your favorite songs.

Individualized experience

The SONOS PLAYBASE can be placed directly under your TV, as long as it weighs less than 77 pounds. You can control it using the touchpad or your smartphone and the app. The 10 integrated, class-D amplified drivers deliver a spectacularly precise sound. In addition to the Trueplay feature, which analyzes the acoustic properties of your room and optimizes the sound settings of the PLAYBASE, you can also set the bass and other drivers manually. The Night Sound setting can be used when you want to keep watching a film or TV show without disturbing the other people in your house. It reduces the volume of loud sounds and increases softer ones. And when you’re having trouble understanding the dialogue in action-packed scenes, the speech enhancement setting can be used to soften loud sound effects. In addition to your TV, countless other devices can be connected to the PLAYBASE, including gaming consoles, satellite boxes, or your Blu-ray player.

How to set up your SONOS PLAYBASE

    • Connect your SONOS PLAYBASE to power using the AC cable.
    • Connect the soundbase to your TV with the optical audio cable.
    • Download the SONOS app.
    • Connect the speaker with your wifi and turn it on. A green light will shine when it’s ready to be set up.

FAQs

Which speakers can be added to the SONOS PLAYBASE to create 5.1 surround sound?

Two PLAY:1, two PLAY:3, or two PLAY:5 can be used to upgrade to surround sound.

What is the Trueplay feature?

The layout of a room and the position of a speaker can have significant effects on sound. Trueplay uses the microphone on your iOS device to measure how sound is reflected from the walls, furniture, and other surfaces in a room. It then adjust the settings on your SONOS speaker to deliver you flawless sound. SONOS speakers sound great in any case, but Trueplay brings you even more faithful sound. Using Trueplay takes about three minutes.

How does Trueplay work?

The sound from a speaker is reflected from the walls, furniture, and other surfaces in a room before it reaches your ear. Due to these reflections, some frequencies can sound softer or louder than they do in the studio mix. Trueplay determines these acoustic properties of a room and then adjusts the settings on your speaker accordingly.

Why doesn’t TruePlay work with Android devices?

Due to the large variety of Android devices with different software versions, microphones, and audio processing features, it has not yet been possible to make a consistent and reliable version of Trueplay for Android.

Can I connect my PLAYBASE using Bluetooth?

The PLAYBASE only supports wifi connections.
