Refurb (more like brand new) Sonos Soundbar AND a GREAT Price
This was purchased as a refurb, and was received as if brand new in the original box and with everything included down to the optical cable. For those into Sonos, this is a great addition to the family. I received mine within 48 hours after placing the order. World Wide Stereo delivers and on a great price point.

Absolutely brand New in every way
I've bought several of these Playbars for my home from a major retailer and wanted to add two more. During the Covid shutdown, I thought I might find someone putting these on sale but it's rare that Sonos discounts their products.
While searching online I saw World Wide Stereo had the factory refurbished Playbars and after talking to them on the phone I ordered two of these.
They came in the original factory box, wrapped just like the new Playbars that I purchased in the past. They are pristine....exactly like a new one in every way except the price. I hooked both of them up and they sound fantastic just like all Sonos speakers.
If the idea of saving a couple hundred dollars on a Playbar sounds good but you are concerned about them being refurbished, there is no reason to be. They will look and perform just like a factory new Playbar for a. better price.
