Sonos PlayBase Black

Everything sounds better on PLAYBASE.
Movies, sports, TV shows, gaming – the slim, low profile PLAYBASE adds dynamic, pulse-pounding sound to whatever’s playing on your TV. And streams your favourite music when your TV’s off.
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 vanishes beneath your TV, yet it fills your entire viewing room with epic home cinema audio.
Two cables. That’s it. One power cable. And one optical cable for your TV. You don’t even have to read a manual; the Sonos app guides you through every step of set up.
PLAYBASE makes movies, sports, games, and music come alive… in one room. Add more Sonos speakers to other rooms and you can listen to what’s playing on your TV all through your home.
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.
Search instantly through all your music services to find the songs you love, set them to play in different rooms, and adjust the volume and other settings for each room.
Compatible with Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Play, SoundCloud, Deezer, and over 30 other streaming services available. Sonos plays it all: popular streaming services, free internet radio, podcasts, audiobooks, your downloads, & whatever you love to listen to.

As a general guide, if you have trouble accessing your WiFi in certain areas of your property then hard wiring your system is recommended.
