Richer sound for TVs, other devices

By Rich Jaroslovsky
Bloomberg News

Enhance sound from cable boxes, Blu-Ray players, video game consoles and high-definition televisions with Sonos’ Playbar.

It also wirelessly streams music and syncs with other Sonos speakers. Control it with free apps for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

It’s a substantial piece of gear, at 12 pounds and 3 feet wide, to house nine amplified speakers – six midrange and three tweeters. The biggest drawback is the expense: $699. http://www.sonos.com
