Sonos on Tuesday officially introduced its Playbar speaker system. The device is essentially one long speaker that's crafted out of aluminum and high-performance fabric and is built for sitting above or below a TV. The system is equipped with nine speakers, including six mid-woofers and three tweeters, was built to sound as clear as possible. We've used Sonos products in the past and have generally loved the experience, which is why we think the Playbar is notable news.

The Playbar will be available soon from the Sonos website and through Amazon, Best Buy, P.C. Richard & Son and other retail outlets. It's priced at $699.
