PLAYBAR OR PLAYBASE? A QUESTION FOR TV AUDIO

Sonos Playbase TV Audio

Sonos added Playbase to its TV audio options this spring. The new product makes Sonos fans choose between Playbase and Playbar.

You may visit Classic Stereo and ask our Electronics Professionals, “Which one is the best fit for my home?”

In turn, they will ask you some questions.

HOW IS YOUR tELEVISION, TV AUDIO AND ROOM DESIGNED?

Sonos says the audio output differs for each speaker but they produce the same quality sound.

So it comes down to design.

Have a flat screen TV mounted to a wall? The Playbar links to the bottom of the television, mounts to the wall below it, or can sit by itself on a TV stand.

On the other hand, the Playbase lives up to its name. Put a black TV stand on the Playbase and it should blend right in.

While you may not notice the look, the sound from the Playbase should stand out.

PLAYBASE FEATURES

If you do not want the Playbase in black, you can get it in white too. Both colors support up to 77 pounds of television.

You should not have any problems setting it up either. Plug in one cord for power and the other cord connects to the TV.

It can provide audio for more than your television. It streams music over WiFi instead of Bluetooth, which comes in handy when you get a phone call. WiFi music does not stop for the phone.

Finally, pair it up with SUB and two PLAY:1s for 5.1 surround sound.

PLAYBAR FEATURES

Playbar shares many of the same features:

  • Simple two-cord setup
  • TV audio and music streaming
  • Stream that music over WiFi
  • A wireless sync with SUB and two PLAY:1s for 5.1 surround sound

The Playbar also works wall mounted or laying flat.  It even works with your existing TV remote.

BACKYARD RESORT: OUTDOOR ELECTRONICS & APPLIANCES

Outdoor Electronics Holland Parade Home

You would think it was a tropical island vacation. Yet, a local couple brought that experience to their home in Holland. See how outdoor appliances and outdoor electronics provide a backyard resort at 14728 Powderhorn Trail.

The 2017 Spring Lakeshore Parade of Homes features this and other landscape designs for a limited time.

Landscape Design Services turned the backyard ideas into a reality. It features a bar with a grill, refrigerator and other appliances furnished by Bekins. An outdoor television and in-lawn speakers from Classic Stereo gives guests little reason to ever go inside. They made it grand enough to host big groups but cozy enough for a couple to enjoy.

MEANT FOR OUTDOOR ELECTRONICS

It is important to note that manufacturers do not build all televisions and speakers to withstand the weather outside. This backyard features Sonance landscape speakers and a Seura outdoor television. A reflective coating protects the TV screen and your view from the sun. It also protects against:

  • rain
  • snow
  • dust
  • insects
  • fog
  • humidity
  • extreme temperatures (-30 degrees Farenheit to 122 degrees Farenheit)
  • and more factors mother nature can throw its way

The homeowner controls all of it with Control 4 home automation. The system lets you control your entire home with a touch of a button or a simple voice command.
