Sonos Playbase

For hi-fi purists, this soundbase (meaning a speaker that the TV sits on top) is the foundation of a multi-speaker home theater audio setup. For less demanding listeners, it's the only speaker you'll need in the living room. It cranks space-filling sound from its 10-speaker array, and can stream music directly from services like Spotify and Apple Music, without having to rely on a separate device or interface. The only thing that would make the Playbase truly perfect would be voice-control, which Sonos promises is right around the corner, starting with Alexa compatibility, In the meantime, voice commands will have to be relayed by a device like the Logitech Harmony.
