I'm wanting to get my husband speakers of some sort for his birthday. We have a large Toshiba tv maybe 60-65 inches? Can't remember. in our living room. It's connected to cable. Our living room is fairly large and even when we have the tv on 100 which is as loud as it can go then we can barely hear the shows when playing the DVR. I have no clue where to start or what to get. We bought a sound bar speaker from target once and it did nothing. It actually was lower than the tv it seemed. We've heard this is the best so I need to know what might work best for our situation.

Hi brittanybutler89

Great to know that you are considering Sonos. Assuming your TV has an optical out for audio and a remote operated via IR (infra-Red) and not Bluetooth Sonos has two options. Both deliver similar sound the major difference is the design. They are called the Playbar and Playbase. See them here:

Both can be fitted with Sonos Play 1, Sonos One or Play 3 (in identical pairs) as surrounds. You can also add a Sonos Sub for DD5.1 Home Theater sound. Additionally, the Playbar and Playbase make excellent speakers for music. Here are two links you'll find useful:

General Setup

Home Theater

I suggest you read over the links then visit a store armed with a bit of knowledge so as not to be over-sold and addition the speakers in store. I haven't seen a post in this forum claiming that Sonos speakers of any type were unable to output sufficient sound for a room.

You'll also find lot's of help in this forum to help you sort things out. Good luck and keep us informed as things develop. Also, Happy Birthday to your husband! 🆒
