When 5.1 sound is high grade but doesn’t come cheap

Sonos focuses on designing and manufacturing wireless hi-fi speakers without compromising on high fidelity sound. The wireless networking of Sonos devices and its uncomplicated interface has made their products very popular. The installation and handling is very easy as compared to other home cinema systems. However priced at £1,635 the Sonos 5.1 Bundle is very expensive but comes with its own advantages and is worth-while for true music lovers. The Sonos 5.1 Bundle comprises of the Sonos Playbar, Sonos Sub and a pair of Sonos PLAY:3 speakers. The Play 3 is a state of the art wireless speaker and produces clear sound and balanced bass at all levels of frequency. The Play 3 delivers refined audio regardless of its type or genre. The Playbar acts as the centre or front speaker, featuring six mid-range drivers and three tweeters which deliver flawless atmospheric sound. Its 90cm long sleek design allows the user to place it under or over their television sets and enjoy a high grade home theatre sound system. However if the user wants to 3.1 sound, the Playbar can be removed from functioning with the system. The Sonos Sub is the subwoofer which adds the perfect amount of bass required in a good surround sound system. It is large in size but produces zero cabinet buzz, making it suitable to be placed anywhere in the house. It has two class-D digital amplifiers to match the speakers. The Sub connected with the Playbar brings out deeper sound adding an extra dimension to the surround sound system. This combination digs into detail of the midrange as well as brings richness to the lows. The system calibrates itself according to the room and ensures high quality sonic output. All of Sonos wireless audio devices are cleverly controlled by the Sonos app. It is user friendly interface and allows the user to manage all the Sonos products by using a cell phone, tablet or laptop. The app synchronizes all the devices together to form the powerful Sonos 5.1 Bundle.

PLAYBAR is quick and easy to set up. Just plug the power cord in, attach the optical cord to your TV and connect to your router or the SONOS BRIDGE

It automatically adjusts to the differences between shoot 'em up action flicks, Shakespearean dramas, and live concerts to deliver the sound as it was intended.

With Sonos clever setup, the System will calibrate itself to the room it is in to ensure the high quality sound possible. Doubling up as a Music system, all the components in this system can still be used for music through your phone or other devices

Elegantly designed and finished in a deep gloss black, the Sonos SUB is not like other subs - it actually looks attractive!
