The Sonos Playbar expands wireless audio to the TV room

Wireless audio giant Sonos has announced the Playbar, a compact sound bar that incorporates all the usual surround-sound speakers and integrates with the company's other wireless speakers. It could be a great solution for the tech-savvy media lover.

But this is the first time they've attempted to tackle TV audio, which is a more complicated proposal. There are good sound bar systems out there already, and of course many people already have excellent multi-speaker systems installed. Why get this Sonos?

Well, it should have pretty great sound — Sonos has always been good about that — but the big draw would probably be putting the controls all on your phone or tablet. Combine the Sonos with a smart set-top box with its own app, and you've got a whole world of music, TV, and movies controllable from your iPad. And setup should be a breeze — it plugs right into your TV and you can even control it through the TV's remote.
