I know its still pretty expensive but I'm sat here listening to a solitary Play 1 speaker wondering just how good the PlayBar would sound! Would love to set up my Sonos system to my tv sounds/pc sounds but there is no cheap way around it by the looks of it (The only thing I found is a way to stream your PC sounds to a free internet radio station and then get Sonos to pick up that, but then there is delay so you would have to off set Kodi or whatever video player your using, so its not ideal!

Anyways I expect this to go cold as very and sonos are not hukd favourites unless they are really good deals, but any comments on the Sonos range or suggestions of better home cinema surround sound options would be appreciated!

Well I used to have a Yamaha, and a Onkyo 7.1 surround system, now I have a Sonos play bar, sub and 2 ones and me and the missus are a lot happier, and the lounge looks far better.

Is DTS just for Blu Rays ? Would it matter on things like Netflix and other video services ?

As far as I am aware it doesn't play it but that does not bother me - it just sounds good, and looks good. Some people think DTS is the must have thing and don't care about filling their lounge up with speakers and looking like a second hand shop. A bit like Apple, Sonos has style and works well, but ignorant people still knock their products.

So you've spend a grand and a half on speakers and you don't get surround sound from DVD's or Blurays but that doesn't bother you?

Hey - Ive just been reading on this and its easily possible to get surround from DVDs and Blu Rays, you just need a player that can decode it which sounds pretty common...

I don't even own any DVDs or Blu Rays now so it wouldn't bother me at all ha

Ha? Show me a player that can decode DTS then output the signal through the optical in a format the Sonos can play, they don't exist. Only way is to find a TV that can ARC through the optical, won't get any HD sound though.

Did you read the third message ??

There are options for Blu-rays that encode the audio track in DTS if you're seeking full 5.1 via Dolby Digital.  There are several models of blu-ray player available which are capable of transcoding from DTS to Dolby, and the Xbox One is capable of doing this as well (if you happen to be an Xbox owner).

Its clearly possible if its a big deal to you to have this

3rd message of 200? No I didn't but like I said there are hacks around it, apart from the Xbox one the only other players I can think of are the Oppo's but these are hardly cheap

Obviously the Play ones are plugged into a mains socket, how is that neater (with a happier missus) than wiring a speaker cable to a normal surround speaker?

I'm selling mine if anyone wants it. Only 3 months old. Boxed etc.

Would be tempted if it was much cheaper, guessing you would get more on ebay maybe - how much are you after ?

It came as a deal with my new TV from John Lewis. I never really used it as have a surround speaker system and I already have a Play 3 so don't need it.
I don't really want to send it in the post as would be too much hassle, prefer someone to collect it if they live in the Reading area.
What's a decent price? Anyone want to make me an offer?
#18
I still struggle to see how these are worth the money! Obviously the wiring is good but sound on these are average at best. When I worked as rep I spent a whole year listening to the Sonos rep sell these and do demos, each time I was unimpressed

Anything you wold recommend instead ? It's hard to get a grip of whats best from reviews and youtube, everything on youtube sounds more bassy and bigger but theres no way to see how well it pushes the sound around the room to get a virtual surround sound feel. I already have the two play ones so could easy get a 5.0 set up with this which would be good.

Tbh I think anything you can buy in normal stores sounds mediocre.

I think a good mid to high end Sony or Panasonic sounded as good as this Sonos. I wasn't impressed with the Panasonic wireless systems but the wired with wireless sub were ok, spend about £500. EVERYTHING Samsung had to offer was tinny.
#21
Basically what I'm saying is... by the time you've bought this and the sub, you've spent £1k and for that I think it's overpriced and overrated. Even if you look at Sony or Panasonic fully wireless, they have better sound, app support, better connection etc

And buy from John Lewis, if you don't like the sound you can take it back within 30 days

tried it in john Lewis yesterday, even without the sub I think it sounds really good. tried a £300 sound bar too and there is such a difference in quality. I'll probably just go for 5.0 sound I don't think the sub is needed to be honest
