The PLAYBAR incorporates many of the features you would expect in a good sound bar, such as nine speakers, spread across three channels, with each speaker driven by its own amplifier, a digital optical input to access audio from your TV (and the other devices connected to your TV), and the ability to decode Dolby Digital bitstreams.
However, Sonos wouldn't bring a sound bar to market without their own twist. Some innovative additions on the PLAYBAR include the ability to add the Sonos Wireless SUB, as well as expanding into a full 5.1 channel surround sound system by synching up with two Sonos PLAY:3 wireless streaming speakers.
In addition to enhancing your TV listening experience, the PLAYBAR can also be connected to your home network via Ethernet or be synched with other Sonos wireless audio streaming products via the SonosNet feature. By taking advantage of both network and SonosNet connectivity options, users can access streaming music content from from their own local or Amazon Cloud Player stored music library and internet sources, including iTunes, Pandora, Rhapsody, Spotify, and more.
The Sonos PLAYBAR will be available for delivery beginning March 5, 2013, but pre-orders are now being accepted. The suggested price is $699. Image provided by Sonos
