At a Glance

The Sonos Playbar is one of the best sound bars in its price range, but it can't compete with a mid-range AV receiver and a 5.1-channel speaker configuration.

Price when rated: $699
Lowest price: $700.00 via Best Buy


  • Can be integrated into a Sonos whole-home audio system
  • Very good sound with both movies and music
  • Versatile setup options
  • Just two wires: TOSlink and power


  • Not a surround-sound system
  • Lacks in-your-face bass response
  • Doesn't support Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD Master Audio
