I hope my fiance doesn't read this
Guys like me who enjoy their home
theatre systems have had to battle it out with their significant
others for space – and money – to put a plethora of speakers and
wiring in their living rooms for an ear-pleasing home theatre.
That's because most TV sets ship with
crummy stereo speakers that were just good enough to produce noise
that matches what you're watching. A home theatre, by comparison,
produces sound, music and a Hi-Fi pleasure.
Some companies offer all-in-one
solutions known as sound bars. These devices simulate a surround
experience from a thin row of speakers crammed in a bar that usually
sits under the TV. Space-saving, yes, but none have blown me away.
So I was skeptical when Sonos called me
out to experience their new wireless home theatre solution – a sound bar
called the Playbar.
