This week Sonos introduces the latest addition to its wireless home sound system and the newest speaker in their home theater lineup with the Playbase. Playbase is a thin, yet powerful speaker that sits discreetly under the TV, inspired by the notion that up to 70 percent of all TVs stand on furniture and are not mounted to the wall.

Optioned in black and white, Playbase arrives 58 mm in height, jam packed with 10 drivers. The device notes construction from a single piece of granite, coming together with no visible seams to portray noticeably clean lines, an extremely flat top surface, and more than 43,000 holes that make up an acoustically transparent grill. Thanks to a complex insert molding process and a custom-designed glass-filled polycarbonate exterior, vibrations are kept to a minimum, making the speaker capable of performing at the highest quality for years to come.

“When we think about what product we’ll invent next, we think first about the home, and the role each of our products play in the home. What we realized is that PLAYBAR only met the need of the small percentage of homes where people mount their televisions on the wall,” said Sonos CEO, Patrick Spence. “We saw a tremendous opportunity to deliver great sound in great style for the majority of homes where the TV sits on a piece of furniture. It was a huge challenge where we pushed the boundaries of design, acoustics, materials, wireless and software, and we can’t wait for people to bring it home.”

Playbase is ultimately very easy to set up and control, using just two cords. You can then expand to other rooms by wirelessly connecting to your Sonos home sound system. In addition, Playbase will soon be controllable with your voice and any Amazon Alexa enabled device.
