Sonos Announces the PLAYBASE Television Speaker Base; More Info Now Available at B&H

Home Entertainment News: An immersive audio system that plugs directly into your TV

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 16, 2017) - Add big, rich sound to the TV with the Sonos PLAYBASE Television Speaker Base. The base supports TVs weighing up to 77 lb and has 10 built-in drivers, each with their own class-D digital amplifier, to add a new dimension to your viewing experience. Six mid-range drivers combine with three tweeters and a woofer to provide deep bass, clear highs, crisp dialogue, and wide sonic range to better immerse you in your movies, shows, sports, and music.

When it comes to home A/V equipment, sometimes people forget that 'A' is just as important as 'V'. As TVs have become razor thin, their speakers tend to lack the oomph needed to immerse you in your media. To combat this phenomenon,wireless audio pioneer Sonos has unveiled the PLAYBASE speaker base, which brings high-quality sound to your TV. The base supports TVs weighing up to 77 pounds, and features six midrange drivers, three tweeters, and a woofer, each of which is powered by individual class-D digital amplifiers. Since it connects directly into a TV (in a snap, thanks to the included optical cable), it plays whatever audio would ordinarily come out of the television's built-in speakers, whether it's sourced from a Blu-ray player, cable box, streaming stick, or game system.
