It probably goes without saying that Encore is in business because we have an unbridled passion for all things audio and visual. Few interactions are more enjoyable than simply talking up what’s new and exciting in our industry. We’ve heard a lot of chatter recently about the new PLAYBAR from Sonos, so we thought we’d take the opportunity of this blog post to take a look at this new phenomenon a little closer…

“It’s the ultimate music machine for fans.” – Variety Magazine

The biggest reason why Encore offers Sonos brand solutions is simple…because we’re fans of music and any tools that make listening to music fun and easy hold a warm place in our hearts.

With a sophisticated 9-speaker design, the PLAYBAR is surprisingly simple to set up. It syncs with other Sonos speakers wirelessly and plays all sources plugged into your HDTV (cable/SAT boxes, Blu-ray, game consoles…if it’s connected to your HDTV, PLAYBAR will play it).

PLAYBAR is also a stand-alone all-in-one Sonos player that allows you to wirelessly stream all the music on earth. The PLAYBAR can sit above or beneath your TV, on a table, or can be mounted on a wall. Whereas the initial products from Sonos were all stereo-centric, the PLAYBAR was designed to enhance your television playback like no other device on the market. After all, while TVs have gotten thinner and lighter, the sound has suffered. Not anymore.

Remember when TiVo first came on the market? Or the iPhone? The people who have had the SONOS system installed talk about it with the same kind of enthusiasm as the first consumers of those market-changing products. It’s as if they had forgotten how music and ambient sound can enhance their lives. Now that they’ve rediscovered this passion, they feel compelled to share their experience with friends and neighbors and anyone who isn’t in the know. We feel much the same.

We’ve had the opportunity to experience a diverse range of systems in our time here at Encore, and Sonos truly has a product that gets people talking. Sonos components are convenient, simple to set-up and use, and (most importantly) a lot of fun! We recommend it wholeheartedly. When industry professionals get THIS excited about a manufacturer and their products, it usually pays to listen.


Want to add a new dimension? The Sonos SUB subwoofer can be added for increased fidelity, providing incredible lows that never generate distortion from its compact package.

Anytime you want the lowdown on the latest technology advancements being launched in the home technology field, please don’t hesitate to call us at Encore! It’s very much why we’re here.
