Just read all the comments about Sonos not being true 5. 1 and not really good surround sound I have the playbar and sub and 2 rear play 1s. My tv is a Sony and the optical connection is straight to the playbar. Watching Netflix horror films or war films will blow your mind on stunning surround that has anybody watching looking over their shoulder. You can instantly tell this is 5. 1 without checking the Sonos app. I cannot recommend this setup highly enough and on music playback the artists feel like they are in the room. Realise that not all tvs send 5. 1 from the optical ( like my old set) but when they do be prepared for a real cinema experience that I have loved for about 18 months now.
