A sound base is a flat box with a speaker designed to sit underneath a TV’s stand. That is fine if your TV has a central pedestal stand, but many TV today were supported by the legs splayed far to either side, and many standard sound bases don’t fit under them. But the Sonos Playbase has no such standard. The Sonos Playbar is the company’s more conventionally designed sound bar. The new Playbase is the best home theater component Sonos has created. With gorgeous looks and Vista-like sound, it is the kind of do-everything all-in-one speaker. Just over 2 inches tall, it is squat enough to nestle beneath the larger splayed-leg TV sets. It is 14-inches deep, and it can hold TVs up to 35 kilos. The design of the Sonos Playbase is supposed to look like it was cut from a slab of granite. But it is not stone, and it has a body of glass-filled polycarbonate and is available in black or white.
On the inside, there were six mid-range drivers, three tweeters, and a subwoofer, with ten digital amplifiers of Class D to power them all. As for as the connections were concerned, you get an Ethernet port and an optical input. Sonos Playbase has one physical switch, the network pairing button on the left of the Playbase. The front edge has got three touch-sensitive keys for play/pause and volume controls. You control everything through the Sonos app. Decide what to play, where to play it, and how loud it should be. In one room or all over your home. Track down the songs across all your music services with a single search. Create playlists in an instant. The Sonos app does it all.
