CON­CLU­SION

SmartHouse - - REVIEW -

It’s easy to un­der­stand why the Play­base spent three years in de­vel­op­ment. This is a beau­ti­fully ex­e­cuted prod­uct that eclipses the per­for­mance of the Play­bar by some mar­gin. The more we lis­tened to it, the more we loved it. What we have here is a gen­uine al­ter­na­tive to a sep­a­rates based hi-fi sys­tem.

There are caveats of course. The Sonos ecosys­tem still cocks a snoot at Hi-Res Au­dio - 16 bit/44.1kHz is as good as it gets. It also takes a tough line when it comes to con­nec­tiv­ity. But drink the Kool-Aid, and the Play­base re­wards with a sim­plic­ity and full­bod­ied per­for­mance that will leave en­thu­si­asts sat­is­fied and new­bies con­verted.

It’s ex­pen­sive but ex­cel­lent.
