The Sonos Playbar (2013) (PBAR1US1BLK) managed to earn a spot in roundups from two sources that are known for their trustworthy review methodology - TrustedReviews and PCmag - but fell short of making it to the top of their lists.

As for the Klipsch Cinema 400 - TrustedReviews, a source that conducts reliable hands-on testing, has featured it in its Klipsch Cinema 400 roundup. However, it didn't make it to any of the top spots.
