Playbar and Play 1

Who makes it: Sonos

What it costs: $699 (Playbar) and $199 (Play 1)

Why we like it: For several years, Sonos was known for making great-sounding, semi-pricey speakers that could be networked into a multi-room music system. Now, they've outgrown that description. The Playbar makes your TV a full member of the Sonos ecosystem, while the Play 1 packs spectacular sound into a compact, affordable package. Use your smartphone or a tablet as a controller, pair them with your music library and streaming services such as Spotify, and play anything, anywhere in your home.
