That is seriously awesome!

that brings the price to ~1200 for a sonos soundbar solution. At that point im having a hard time just not specking a regular passive sounbar solution. Arguably though the playbar sounds better then any soundbar less then 1500 IMO.

I can think of two jobs that I can take this option too though. Which means I need to get signed back up with LEON.

Nicely done guys!

Totally agree. This is one of those stories I was so excited to write and couldn't wait for people to read. Rich people buy Sonos, too. They'll pay these "accessories"

I am just excited to have a more aesthetically pleasing solution to completely integrating a surround zone with a Sonos DA system.

Hey guys, my name is Bret Leatherwood and I am the Product Manager for Strong Mounts at SnapAV. We recently redesigned our soundbar brackets to work better with other brands like Sonos. I would love for you guys to try it out and give me your feedback after you install one. Please contact me at the info below so we can set it up. Thanks.

Bret, the long slot that goes behind the bracket on the television is nice because it is infinitely adjustable in the vertical plane. It is also a loser because the weight of the soundbar causes the single screw holding it to slip, so the soundbar is frankly not very secure. If you did something as simple as including four star washers for each screw size (I almost always use M8 BTW) then there would be something with some bite to keep that bracket from sliding. When I finished the one I did yesterday, I couldn't help but think, "How long will that stay in place?"

I honestly like many of your products but this one makes me wonder if you ever stopped to ask us if we thought it could work. Like having to carry screws/nuts/washers to attach the speaker to the mount. I had to ask the homeowner to paw through his hardware stash yesterday... nice.

Also, it seems that common products like your own soundbars and the Sonos to name a couple, would have shoulder bolts so you could just slip the speaker on and have it done. Using the Sonos wall mount seems pretty lame.
