And if you're not planning to lay the Playbar flat across a TV stand, built-in sensors will automatically adjust the device's channels and EQ if rotated for wall mounting, for example. Setting up the Playbar looks simple, as the back panel only sports a single optical input and two Ethernet ports. But as you might have noticed, this also means the Playbar requires a wired connection, unless you shell out $50 for the Sonos Wireless Bridge.
I'm personally not too enthused with sound bars, as they're generally lacking in deep bass, but Sonos states the Playbar will pair seamlessly with other Sonos devices, including the $700 Sonos Sub. The Playbar is controllable via apps for iOS or Android devices, and will of course stream music from nearly any application, including Spotify, Pandora, or iTunes.
The Sonos Playbar will retail for $700 when it launches on March 5.
