The setup of the Sonos PLAYBAR took around 10 minutes in all. After unboxing to set up all you need to do is connect the power and the optical audio cable to the TV and it’s set! The Sonos PLAYBAR works with your existing remote and pairing was simple plus pretty cool. Using the app it asks you to point the TV remote at the Sonos PLAYBAR and turn up the volume. The Sonos PLAYBAR automatically detects the remote signal and maps it.
Testing out the sound on the Playbar was amazing. I increased the volume on it to 100 and it was loud enough to shake my China and glasses! I wasn’t even using a sub or other speakers. The Sonos PLAYBAR Audio Specs for the Include:
