I bought my sonos about 5 years ago.  I have a playbar and a sub.  I would like the easiest way to create surround sound using my existing equipment.

The Playbar is already your front 3 channels. Add a pair of Ones bonded as surrounds to build the system up to 5. Your Sub is the .1 resulting in your 5.1 system.

One SL or Play 1 would be my choice, IKEA /Sonos speakers might work too.

Used Play 1s might be the cheap option but compare to sale pricing on the One SLs.
