Several recent leaks point to a new speaker release from Sonos.
Gizmodo says Sonos is looking to add another piece to their home theater lineup, citing various leaks that popped up over the last few days.
The product, reportedly called the “PlayBase,” has been posted on Twitter, and seen in both B&H and FCC listings.

According to Gizmodo, the photos lead them to believe that the “PlayBase” speaker resembles a flat speaker system that may have once acted as a base for your television.
That type of speaker reportedly has a rather infamous reputation, but Sonos’ speaker includes proprietary sound-tuning software, called Truplay, that could change all that. The software was created back in 2015 and uses a configuration procedure that makes speaker sound quality increase, regardless of where said speakers are set up. Users can tone the speakers with Truplay to get the best quality sound, wherever they are placed.
Sonos has reportedly been categorized as a market leader in wi-fi audio for the last 10 years. However, in the last few, Samsung, Bose, Polk, Denon, and Yamaha have taken aim at that spot.
Sonos’ integration with Amazon’s Alexa service, to provide voice controls on its speakers, may help them hold onto the leadership position. The speaker is predicted to hit shelves in March.
It’ll reportedly set you back about $700.
Sonos declined to comment on the product or leaks.
