Of course, if it were that easy, idiots like me would be making things instead of simply writing about things that other people have made and, clearly, a huge amount of engineering expertise has gone into crafting the PlayBase.
The design is simple and seamless, but also supremely solid. Solid enough, in fact, to take the weight of a 34kg TV without even a hint of flex. Got a TV heavier than that? It must be ancient if so, because almost no telly weighs that much these days.
And while the PlayBase is super-minimalist, with just one ‘proper’ button (for pairing) and a couple of touch-sensitive buttons (for play/pause, volume and skipping tracks), it’s not without funky, nerdy details, such as the 43,000 holes that come in five different sizes to regulate airflow across different sections of the speaker.
