Introducing Sonos Playbase. The perfect fit for your TV space.

We believe that what’s on your TV is only as good as what your TV is on. So, say hello to our brand new speaker, Playbase, delivering powerful home cinema sound when your TV is on, and all-encompassing music whenever it’s off.



Our brand new speaker, Playbase, delivering powerful home theater sound when the TV is on, and music all the time when it’s off.


Our starting-point for Playbase’s unique design was a singular insight: 70% of TVs are positioned on furniture, not mounted on the wall. Yet there are few speakers out there that truly complement this arrangement – sitting beneath your TV and blending seamlessly with the rest of your room’s setup.

While simple in concept, fitting powerful home cinema sound in our thinnest speaker yet was no easy task.

Radically simple

This pioneering piece of technology blends perfectly to deliver the stunning sound and multi-room wireless you’d expect from Sonos – all wrapped up in a design that’s perfectly suited to the way we live today.

Suddenly, there’s no need to dream of a dedicated home cinema room, or a den filled with wall-to-wall technology. Now, you can enjoy cinema-quality sound not only in the heart of your living room, but in your whole home thanks to the Sonos system.

Just sit your TV on your Playbase. Switch on. And start watching.

Of course, this kind of simplicity is can be fiendishly complex to develop. It took us years of blood, sweat and tears to perfect the Playbase – and you can meet some of the brains behind it in the video below.


Great sound when your TV is on

At just 58 mm in height, the Playbase is the thinnest speaker we’ve ever made – designed in a seam-free, monolithic style that blends perfectly into the home environment.

But what’s surprising for a speaker this thin is the wide sound stage and sheer quantity of bass it can generate. It’s all thanks to a custom-designed woofer and an advanced speaker array that optimises the Playbase for stereo and surround sound modes.

Turn on your Playbase and you’re instantly transported to the heart of the action – whether listening to Khaleesi’s dragons roar, dodging explosions in a galaxy far far away, or losing yourself in the romance of La La Land.

All-encompassing music when your TV’s off

When your TV is off, your Playbase stays on. So you can turn your living room into a dance floor with just a split-second’s notice. Take your party to the next level by adding the Sonos Sub in your TV space. Or connect wirelessly to speakers elsewhere in your home, and fill every room with the music you love.

Make home cinema a reality

While televisions are getting bigger, thinner, and sounding worse, film and television mixes are becoming more complex. The result is that the sound experience at home has the potential to be immersive and amazing, but often falls short. Playbase solves exactly that, so you get open, natural sound, clear dialogue and immersive bass that turns any space in your home into a cinema experience.
