Hi everyone! I am just about to buy a sonos device for a 5.1. Main device will not be wall-mounted so I have decided going for the playbase. I am just little worried about an apparent sibilant, crispy annoying treble. It will be used mainly for Cinema and Videogames. Is there really an annoying issue with the treble in the playbase? Should I go for the Beam or the Playbar, knowing that I will not use it wall-mounted?
Thanks a lot!

There was justified criticism of the playbase when it was launched, and quite rightly too. However there was a software update some time ago that really did change the annoying sibilant audio especially with vocals. I could certainly hear a big difference and am pleased and surprised that Sonos listened to their critics. Now if they’d only add DTS support even as a paid upgrade I’d be even happier! Personally I prefer the playbase sound quality and it fits under my tv much more easily and discreetly than a play bar.
