The SONOS Playbar is a soundbar offering intended to be a one-product solution for those who have an HDTV but wish to install an affordable and simple home theatre audio setup. Convenience is a main feature here. This soundbar requires two cables, one for AC power and the other an optical cable for connection to a TV (included). Purchasers should verify that their TV has an optical audio out port. Another main feature of this model is compatibility with other SONOS wireless speaker products; it is possible to expand to true surround sound by purchasing additional SONOS satellite speakers. These will sync quickly to the Playbar. The Playbar also accepts passthrough audio from the TV, so any device connected to the TV can also be played back. It is also possible to stream music directly from iOS or Android devices, and there are supported apps for each that facilitate working with this product. Purchasers should also note that at least one SONOS product must be plugged directly into their wireless router in order to use the WiFi streaming communications. An ethernet cable is included for this purpose.
