What customers say about "Features"
Sonos PLAYBAR Wireless Soundbar
  • Soundbar was extremely easy to install on wall with their mounting bracket.
  • The Playbar was easy to install and integrate with my Play 3's to get the surround sound effects.
  • The installation is very smooth (specially if you already other Sonos devices). The sound quality is pretty good and automatically becomes integrated with other Sonos components.
  • The soundbar is a great unit. The bar actually contains the center channel and the two front channels.
  • Soundbar works great, but my tv like many others doesn't output Dolby digital 5.1. Had to buy an hdmi switch and now have Dolby digital 5.1 from all decices.
  • Disappointing soundbar. Thought it would be a great purchase and am already invested with a bunch of other Sonos gear. Bought the Playbar and two Play:1s since Sonos says they can work together to do 5.1 surround.
Bose SoundTouch 300 Soundbar, works with Alexa
  • Set up was a breeze and the system changes effortlessly between inputs just by powering on the media format you are using.
  • Great. It was easy to install and sync up with my TV. I can hear clear sound from many points in my open floorplan.
  • This is a Great product and easy to install. Template is available that makes the installation easy to do compared to other products where you have to do a lot of measurements.
  • Stereo TV shows as well as Dolby Digital shows, sound great.
  • Best Soundbar i ever had , Please improve the sound touch app and Voice assistance (ALEXA and Google Home) compatability better and make it as good as the Remote .
  • Spotify playlists are buried down below (should be the very top of the list).

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Sonos PLAYBAR Wireless Soundbar
  • Easy wireless connection with Bluetooth for Pandora or other iphone media.
  • This is an amazing product. I connected the playbar into a pre-wired LAN jack in my family room (routed through a ethernet switch to the LAN jack) to my cable modem (located in a separate room).
  • A really good concept with only one major hole in it. As others have mentioned, there's only an optical in and not an hdmi in.
  • It doesn't have bluetooth or the capability to connect to my devices over wireless for anything other than music.
  • Minor limitation may be the optical audio input for 5.1 as newer HDTVs are tending to HDMI and may not have an optical output.
Bose SoundTouch 300 Soundbar, works with Alexa
  • The Bose soundbar is an excellent speaker that can be used for all wifi and Bluetooth devises.
  • Love the fact that this soundbar has both, the Bluetooth and wifi feature!
  • Moreover, it includes Bluetooth with NFC and pairs easily with BT devices to allow video and music playback.
  • Love that it connects with one HDMI cable. Very good sound.
  • Do Not Buy This Product if you plan to use WiFi! The set up is insanely complicated -- we have now spent more than four hours and it still does not work and we are experienced with computers and sound systems.
