Sonos PlayBase

Please contact us about pricing. Available in black (PBASE1UK1BLK) and white (PBASE1UK1).

All-encompassing sound and music streaming for TVs on stands and furniture.



– Two-in-one. Full-cinema sound for your TV. And streams music, too.
– Low profile design that blends in perfectly. Sound you just can’t miss.
– Securely supports TVs up to 77 lbs (35 kg).
– Simple two-cord setup. One for power, one for your TV.
– Add SUB and two PLAY:1 rear speakers for wireless 5.1 surround sound.
– Streams over wi-fi, not Bluetooth, so the music never stops – even if you get a phone call.

What’s on your TV is only as good as what your TV is on.

Everything sounds better on PLAYBASE.

Movies, sports, TV shows, gaming – the slim, low profile PLAYBASE adds dynamic, pulse-pounding sound to whatever’s playing on your TV. And streams your favourite music when your TV’s off.

An off-the-wall approach to better TV sound.

Typical soundbars work best when wall-mounted directly below a TV. Truth is, most TVs end up on stands and furniture—exactly what PLAYBASE was created for. Its low profile design practically vanishes beneath your TV, yet it fills your entire viewing room with epic home cinema audio.

Two cables. That’s it.

One power cable. And one optical cable for your TV. You don’t even have to read a manual; the Sonos app guides you through every step of set up.

Send TV sound all around.

PLAYBASE makes movies, sports, games, and music come alive… in one room. Add more Sonos speakers to other rooms and you can listen to what’s playing on your TV all through your home.

Ten amplified internal drivers – six mid-range, three tweeters, and one woofer – replace the limited output of your TV’s built-in speakers with deeper booms, crystal-clear whispers, and huge waves of sound.

One app. Complete music control.

Search instantly through all your music services to find the songs you love, set them to play in different rooms, and adjust the volume and other settings for each room.

Apple Music, Spotify, and over 30 other services available.

Sonos plays it all: popular streaming services, free internet radio, podcasts, audiobooks, your go-to collection of downloads—whatever you love to listen to.

Custom tune your PLAYBASE.

With Trueplay you can set your home cinema speakers up however you want and know they’re going to sound amazing.

Additional Features

– Speech Enhancement Setting – Keeps dialogue volume consistent while reducing the intensity of loud sound effects. So you can clearly understand even the faintest whisper.

– Night Sound Setting – Don’t want to disturb the rest of the house? Turn on Night Sound. At lower volumes, quiet sounds get a slight boost while loud ones are automatically reduced.

– Plays Everything – Freeview boxes. Gaming consoles. Satellite boxes. Blu-ray players. If it’s connected to your TV, PLAYBASE will play it.

– All-encompassing Sound. No Wall Mount required – PLAYBASE securely supports TVs up to 77 lbs (35 kg). Which covers just about any TV that comes with its own stand.

Better sound, guaranteed.

Choose any Sonos speaker to try at home for 100 days. Change your mind before the 100 days are up and get a full refund, no strings attached.

Multi-room Listening

Sonos One wirelessly connects to Sonos speakers in additional rooms, allowing you to expand your home sound system when you’re ready.

Be Heard

Sonos One is built with a custom six-microphone array to hear you from anywhere in the room, no matter how loud the music is playing. With smart voice capture and noise cancellation, the Sonos One makes sure you’re heard.

Superior Sound

Built on the mini-but-mighty blueprint of PLAY:1, Sonos One is backed by a pair of Class-D amplifiers and custom-built drivers, meticulously tuned to the speaker’s unique acoustic architecture.

More with Two

Pair two Sonos Ones together in the same room for instant stereo sound. Add a SUB for deeper bass. Or pair with your TV’s PLAYBAR or PLAYBASE for epic home cinema surround sound.

Control your Sonos


Play and control your music hands-free. Just ask.


Tap to turn up the volume. Swipe to skip a track. Mute the microphone for privacy. Sonos One’s touch controls are always a tap away.


The deepest level of Sonos control. Manage everything you listen to in one place.

..and your entire home

Turn on lights, adjust the temperature, and more…with Sonos One you can control your smart home devices with your voice.

Enhanced features

Fits almost anywhere

Mount Sonos One to the wall or ceiling, or on a speaker stand. Its small size also makes it perfect for bookshelves, counter tops and snug spaces.

Seamless design

Seamless all-black or all-white colour, smooth matte finish, and durable metal grille for an appearance that fits in any home.

Create a home cinema

Use a pair of Sonos Ones with PLAYBAR or PLAYBASE to create surround sound for all your movies, games and TV shows. And your cinema setup streams music, too.

Complete privacy

An illuminated LED indicator light makes sure you always know when your speaker’s microphone is active. Or turned off. Sonos One is designed with extra security: the hard-wired LED connection ensures no one is listening when you want privacy.

As Sonos is continually updating with new features, services and skills, your music and voice-control options will both keep getting better over time.
