Wireless surround sound system, possible?

Everything to create the perfect 5.1 wireless surround sound system

1. Sonos PLAYBAR
PLAYBAR is the soundbar for music lovers. With nine speakers under the hood, it floods any room with super-realistic sound for games, movies and music. It plays everything that’s connected to the TV, including cable boxes and game consoles. Set it on your TV stand, or mount it on the wall near your TV.

2. Sonos SUB
SUB adds soul-shaking bass with two face-to-face, force-cancelling speakers for deep sound and zero cabinet buzz or rattle. Feel the crush of every action sequence and the shred of every power chord. Put the SUB wireless subwoofer anywhere you want in the room—even lying flat under a couch.

3. Sonos PLAY:1s (2)
Complete your home theater with a pair of PLAY:1 surround speakers. Mini but mighty, they bring deep, richly textured sound to your movies and music. Plug in, behind your couch, and get surrounded with epic sound.

Epic Sound for Your Television

PLAYBAR’s nine-speaker driver soundbar design floods your home with huge waves of epic, full-theater sound for TV, Web, Movies and Video Games.

All the music on earth

PLAYBAR doubles up not only as a soundbar but also as a stand-alone all-in-one Sonos player that allows you to wirelessly stream all the music on earth—your iTunes library, your favorite music services, and thousands of Internet radio stations, shows and podcasts.

Easy setup

PLAYBAR connects to your TV using a single optical cable and power cord and plays everything that is connected to your TV, from cable boxes to gaming consoles.

Wireless

No rewiring required. Connect PLAYBAR to your home WiFi network using the free Sonos Controller App.

Flexible design

The PLAYBAR's long, thin soundbar shape allows it to sit easily above or beneath your TV on a table or a console, or to be wall-mounted.

Universal audio

PLAYBAR speaks DOLBY DIGITAL and stereo, so you never miss a moment of the action.

Other cool features
