Hey , 

Sub - Playbase and 2 x Play 1’s …… Would is be worth having the play ones literally next to the Playbase or is that overkill?

any advise would be greatly appreciated.

In my opinion, they’d sound odd if they were set up as surrounds in front. If you can’t have them “behind” you, I’d just set them up as a separate “room” and use them for music playback. Your mileage may vary, it’s really up to your ears. Why not try it, if it doesn’t suit you, just change it.

Thank you Bruce . I wouldn’t set them as surrounds, 

I’ll give it a go.

 

thanks ag

I’ve got a pair of PLAY:5s flanking my PLAYBAR that I use for music and an AirPlay 2 target. It looks fine, and the sound is spectacular.
