Your Home Network
To access music services, Internet radio, and any digital music stored on your computer or Network-Attached Storage (NAS)
device, your home network must meet the following requirements:
Home network requirements
Note: Your network must have a high-speed Internet connection, as the Sonos system is
designed to provide you with free, online software updates. Your Sonos system must be
registered to receive these updates so be sure to register during the setup process. We do
not share your e-mail address with other companies.
• High-speed DSL/Cable modem, or fiber-to-the-home broadband connection for proper playback of Internet-based
music services. (If your Internet service provider only offers Satellite Internet access, you may experience playback
issues due to fluctuating download rates.)
• If your modem is not a modem/router combination and you want to take advantage of Sonos' automatic online
updates, or stream music from an Internet-based music service, you must install a router in your home network. If
you do not have a router, purchase and install one before proceeding. If you are going to use the Sonos Controller App
on an Android™ or iOS device, or you are setting up Sonos wirelessly, you will need a wireless router. Please visit our
Web site at http://faq.sonos.com/apps for more information.
Note: Sonos communicates over a 2.4GHz home network supporting 802.11 b/g wireless
technology. 5GHz networks are not supported in a completely wireless Sonos setup.
• Connect a Sonos BRIDGE, BOOST™ or player to your router if:
• You have a larger home where the WiFi performance isn’t reliable and you want to strengthen the wireless
performance of your Sonos system.
• Your WiFi network is already in high demand with streaming video and web surfing and you want to create a
separate wireless network exclusively for your Sonos speakers.
• You want to pair a SUB™ and/or a pair of PLAY:1® or PLAY:3® speakers with your PLAYBAR® to create a 3.1 or 5.1
home theater setup.
• Your home network is 5GHz only (not switchable to 2.4GHz).
• For best results, you should connect the computer or NAS drive that contains your personal music library collection to
your home network router using an Ethernet cable.
System requirements
• Windows® XP SP3 and higher (while Windows XP SP3 and higher are compatible with version 5.1, standard wireless
setup is only supported on Windows 7 and higher)
• Macintosh® OS X 10.6.8 and higher (while Macintosh OS X 10.6.8 and higher are compatible with version 5.1, standard
wireless setup is only supported on Mac iOS 10.7 and higher)
• Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad devices running iOS 6.0 or later, certain features require higher versions
of iOS

Adding to an Existing Sonos System
Once you’ve got your Sonos system set up, you can easily add more Sonos products any time (up to 32 rooms).
If your house has structured (built-in) wiring, you can make a wired connection to the additional Sonos products. If you don’t,
our built-in wireless technology is ideal for you.
1. Attach desired speakers.
• Your speaker’s power rating should be at least 75W for 8 Ohm speakers, and at least 150W for 4 Ohm speakers. Do not
connect speakers rated at less than 4 Ohms.
• Use your thumb or finger to firmly push the spring-loaded speaker connector post inward to reveal the connection hole.
• Insert the stripped end of the speaker wire into the hole, and then release. The stripped portion should be caught firmly
in the connector post.
Note: Connect the red (+) and black (-) terminals from each speaker to the corresponding
terminals on the Sonos CONNECT:AMP. Mismatching of polarities will result in weak central
sound, and a distorted sense of sound direction. 

When making connections, ensure that none of the strands of your speaker wire come in
contact with an adjoining terminal on the rear panel.
• Repeat to install the other speaker wires.
• If your speakers have banana connectors, you can insert the plugs directly into the banana jacks on the back of the
CONNECT:AMP instead.
2. Attach the power cord and plug into a wall outlet—make sure the Voltage Switch on the back of the CONNECT:AMP is set
to the proper position for your country before applying power.
After a few moments, the Status indicator will begin to flash green (if this Sonos product was previously connected to
another Sonos system, the Status indicator may be solid white instead.)
3. Choose one of the following options:
• Using a handheld Sonos Controller: Select Add a Player or SUB from the Settings menu, and follow the on-screen
prompts to add this product to your Sonos system.
• Using the Sonos Controller for Mac or PC: Select Add a Player or SUB from the Manage menu and follow the prompts
to add this product to your Sonos system.
Sonos CONNECT:AMP

Thick walls, 2.4 GHz cordless telephones, or the presence of other wireless devices can interfere with or block the wireless
network signals from your Sonos system. If you experience difficulty after positioning a Sonos product, try one or more of the
following resolutions—relocate the Sonos product; change the wireless channel your music system is operating on; connect
a Sonos product to your router if your setup is currently wireless.
Playing Music
You can use any Sonos controller to make music selections—choose a music source from the Sonos music menu on a
handheld controller, or from the MUSIC pane if you are using the Sonos Controller App for Mac or PC.
Radio
Sonos includes a radio guide that provides immediate access to thousands of free Internet radio stations and broadcast
programs. You can easily find radio from all over the world—music, news, and variety programming, including archived
shows and podcasts.
To select an Internet radio station, simply select Radio and choose a station.
Music services
A music service is an online music store or online service that sells audio on a per-song, per audiobook, or subscription basis.
Sonos is compatible with several music services - you can visit our website at www.sonos.com/howitworks/music/partners
for the latest list. (Some music services may not be available in your country. Please check the individual music service’s
website for more information.)
If you are currently subscribed to a music service that’s compatible with Sonos, simply add your music service user name and
password information to Sonos as needed and you’ll have instant access to the music service from your Sonos system.
1. To add a music service, touch Add Music Services from the Sonos music menu on your handheld controller.
2. Select the Sonos-compatible music service you would like to add.
3. Select Add Account, and then follow the on-screen prompts. Your login and password will be verified with the music
service. As soon as your credentials have been verified, the music service displays on the Sonos music menu.
Free music service trials are available in some countries. (Please check the individual music service’s website for more
information.) If there is a music service trial visible on the Music Services menu, simply touch it to select. Touch Add
Account -> I’m new to [music service], and then follow the prompts to activate the music trial. After the trial period is up,
you will need to subscribe to the music service to keep the music playing.
Local music library
The Sonos system can play music from any computer or network-attached storage (NAS) device on your home network
where you have shared music folders. During the setup process, you are guided through the process of accessing your local
music library (such as your iTunes library). Over time, you may wish to add or remove folders from this list.
8
Product Guide
To make changes to your shared folders list, select the Settings menu from a handheld Sonos controller and then choose
one of the following options:
• To add a new music folder to Sonos, select Manage Music Library-> Music Library Setup -> Add New Share on a
handheld controller.
• To remove a music folder, select Manage Music Library-> Music Library Setup. Touch the share you wish to remove
and then select Remove.
The Sonos system indexes your music folders so you can view your music collection by categories (such as artists, albums,
composers, genres, or tracks.) If you add new music to a folder that is already indexed, simply update your music index to
add this music to your Sonos music library.
• To update your music index, touch Settings -> Manage Music Library -> Update Music Index Now.
• If you’d like your music library to update automatically each day, open the Sonos Controller app on your Mac or PC. 
Select Manage -> Music Library Settings and click the Advanced tab. Check Library Updates and select an update
time.
Wireless iTunes playback
You can select and play music and podcasts stored on any iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch that’s on the same network as your
Sonos products. Playback is perfectly synchronized, in any or every room of your home. Simply choose This iPad, This
iPhone, or This iPod touch from the Sonos app on your iOS device to make audio selections and then you can use any Sonos
controller to control playback.
Wireless playback requires Sonos Controller App for iPhone or iPad version 3.8.3 or higher and devices running iOS software
version 6.0 or later.
Wireless playback from Android devices
You can select and play music stored on any Android device that’s on the same network as your Sonos products. Playback is
perfectly synchronized, in any or every room of your home. Simply choose This Mobile Device from the Sonos app on your
Android smartphone or tablet to make audio selections and then you can use any Sonos controller to control playback.
Wireless music playback is compatible with Sonos software update 4.1.1 and higher, and any device running Android 2.1 and
higher. (Wireless playback of podcasts is supported on Android 2.2 and higher.)
Google Play Music (Android devices)
You can play music to your Sonos system directly from the Google Play Music app on any Android device. This feature is
available for both Standard and All Access Google Play Music customers.
To play music directly from the Google Play Music app to your Sonos system, you must have both the Google Play Music app
and the Sonos Controller App installed on your mobile device. Sonos playback from Google Play Music is compatible with
Sonos software update 4.3 and higher, and with any device running Android 2.3 and higher.

Using Line-In
You can easily stream an external source such as a CD player or portable music player through your Sonos system using the
audio-in connections on your Sonos CONNECT:AMP. The device will be automatically detected as soon as you plug it in.
• Use a standard RCA cable to plug an external source like a CD player into the analog Audio In connections on the back
of your CONNECT:AMP.
• If you are connecting a portable music player to the CONNECT:AMP, you will need a 1/8 inch mini-stereo to RCA audio
cable instead. Plug the mini-stereo end into the portable device and the RCA end into the Audio In connection on the
CONNECT:AMP.
Using a handheld Sonos Controller:
• To play music from this line-in source, select Line-In from the Sonos music menu, select the source, and select Play
Now.
• To change the name of this device, select Rooms from the Settings menu. Select the Sonos product this source is
connected to, and then touch Line-In Source Name. Select a new name from the list, or type a unique name.
• To change the line-in level, select Rooms from the Settings menu. Select the Sonos product this source is connected
to, and then touch Line-In Source Level. Select a new level.
Using the Sonos Controller for Mac or PC:
• To play music from this source select Line-In from the MUSIC pane, click
next to the music source, and select Play
Now.
• To change the settings for this device:
• Select Manage -> Settings (PC) or Sonos -> Preferences -> Room Settings (Mac).
• Select the Sonos product your Airport Express is connected to from the Room Settings for drop-down list.
• Click the Line-In tab and update the settings.
A default (typical) line-in level is automatically assigned when you select a source name, but if the volume sounds too low,
you can select a higher line level for this device. (You may experience sound distortion at higher volume levels if you set the
level too high.)
Line-in encoding settings
When you have line-in music sources attached to a Sonos product, line-in encoding determines how Sonos will encode the
data coming in from these sources. Your Sonos system defaults to automatic in order to provide the optimal playback
experience. Sonos recommends you do not change this default. However, if you decide to make a change, we recommend
the following usage guidelines:
Use Uncompressed if:
• You want optimal performance with home theaters.
• You want to produce the highest quality sound for your Sonos system (this selection requires more network bandwidth
than compressed audio.)
Use Compressed if:
• You are connecting more than 4 rooms wirelessly.
• You are in an environment with heavy wireless interference and are experiencing dropouts.
10
Product Guide
To change the line-in encoding setting, select one of the following options:
• Using a handheld Sonos controller: From the Settings menu, select Advanced Settings -> Audio Compression.
• Using the Sonos Controller for PC: Select Manage -> Settings -> Advanced.
• Using the Sonos Controller for Mac: Select Sonos -> Preferences -> Advanced.
For additional information on connecting audio devices, you can go to our Web site at http://faq.sonos.com/cables.
Surround Speakers
You can easily pair two PLAY:1 or PLAY:3 speakers with a PLAYBAR to function as left and right surround channels in your
Sonos surround sound experience. For more information, go to http://faq.sonos.com/surround.
If you have a CONNECT:AMP and speakers, the release of Sonos software update 4.2 makes it possible to configure the
CONNECT:AMP for surround use. Both the CONNECT:AMP and the PLAYBAR must be wired in this configuration—this is a
requirement only when configuring a CONNECT:AMP for surround. It is not a requirement for normal use of these products.
Set up CONNECT:AMP surround
Note: If this is a newly purchased CONNECT:AMP, be sure to add it to your Sonos system
before attempting to set up surround speakers.
1. Connect the PLAYBAR to your router with an Ethernet cable.
2. Connect the CONNECT:AMP to your router, or to the PLAYBAR, with an Ethernet cable.
3. Attach desired speakers to the CONNECT:AMP (power rating should be at least 75W for 8 Ohm speakers and at least
150W for 4 Ohm speakers.)
4. Position the speaker connected to the Left terminal on the CONNECT:AMP as the left surround speaker in your surround
sound setup.
5. Position the speaker connected to the Right terminal on the CONNECT:AMP as the right surround speaker in your
surround sound setup.

Basic Troubleshooting
Warning: Do not open Sonos products as there is a risk of electric shock. Under no
circumstances should Sonos products be repaired by anyone other than an authorized Sonos
repair center, as this will invalidate the warranty. Please contact Sonos Customer Support for
more information.
If a problem occurs, you can try the troubleshooting suggestions listed below. If one of these doesn’t remedy the problem, or
you are not sure how to proceed, please contact the Sonos Customer Support team and we’ll be happy to help.
Sonos product(s) not detected during setup
• Check to make sure the power cord is properly seated.
• A network issue may be preventing the product from connecting to your Sonos system. If this is a wireless Sonos
product, try moving the Sonos products closer together, or use an Ethernet cable to hard wire the product to your router
temporarily to see if the problem is related to wireless interference.
If you encounter this message while a Sonos product is connected to your router, you can try the steps below to resolve this
issue. If you are still experiencing problems, please contact Sonos Customer Support.
1. Check the firewall
Firewall software installed on the computer may be blocking the ports that Sonos uses to operate. First, disable all your
firewalls and try to connect again. If this resolves the problem, you should configure your firewall to work with the Sonos
Controller for Mac or PC. Please go to our Web site at http://faq.sonos.com/firewall for additional information. If this does not
resolve the problem, you can try step 2 below.
2. Check the router
You can bypass your router’s switch to determine whether there are any router configuration issues by connecting a Sonos
product as shown below—in this BOOST configuration example, note that the BOOST and the computer still have Internet
access:
• Be sure that your cable/DSL modem is connected to the router’s WAN (Internet) port.
Product Guide
14
• Temporarily remove any other components that are wired to your network.
• Connect an Ethernet cable from the computer directly to the back of the BOOST, and then connect another Ethernet
cable from that Sonos product directly to one of the LAN ports on your router.
• When you make a change to your network configuration, you may need to power cycle the Sonos product by
unplugging the power cord, and then plugging it back in.
• If you are not using a router, you can visit our Web site at http://faq.sonos.com/norouter for more information.
3. Check the wiring
Check the indicator lights on both the router and the Sonos product. The link/status lights should be lit solid, and the activity
lights on the router should be blinking.
• If the link lights are not lit, try connecting to a different port on your router.
• If the link lights still do not light, try connecting a different Ethernet cable.
Sonos player is not operating properly
• If the status indicator is not lit and no sound is produced when the unit is plugged in, check to ensure the power cord
is properly seated.
• If the status indicator is solid white, make sure the volume is set to a suitable level; make sure MUTE is not on; if
CONNECT:AMP, make sure external speakers are connected securely.
• If the player has suddenly stopped playing music and the status indicator is flashing orange and white, pause or unplug
the player for a few minutes to allow it to cool. Check to make sure the vents are not blocked. See "Player Status
Indicators" on page 17.
• Check the link/activity lights on both the router and the Sonos product that is wired to your router.The link lights should
be lit solid and the activity lights should be blinking.
• If the link lights are not lit, try connecting to a different port on your router.
• If the link lights still do not light, try using a different Ethernet cable.
• Move your Sonos controller closer to a player.
• Check to ensure there are no obstacles to impede wireless operation.
• Check your network connections.
• The Sonos player may need to be reset. Disconnect the power cord for 5 seconds, and then reconnect. Wait for the
Sonos player to restart.

If you purchase a new router or change your ISP (Internet service provider), you will need to restart all your Sonos products
after the router is installed.
Note: If the ISP technician connects a Sonos product to the new router, you only need to
restart your wireless Sonos products.
1. Disconnect the power cord from all of your Sonos products for at least 5 seconds.
2. Reconnect them one at a time, starting with the Sonos product that is connected to your router.
Wait for your Sonos products to restart. The status indicator light will change to solid white on each product when the
restart is complete.
If your Sonos setup is completely wireless, you will also need to change your wireless network password. Follow the steps
below:
1. Temporarily connect one of your Sonos players to the new router with an Ethernet cable.
2. From the Sonos music menu on your controller, select Settings.
3. Select Advanced Settings -> Wireless Setup.

Regulation Information
USA
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC
Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will
not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
• All Sonos devices have in-products antennas. Users cannot reorient or relocate the receiving antenna without
modifying the product
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
Caution: Modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer may void the user's authority to operate the equipment
under FCC rules.
The device for operation in the band 5150-5250 MHz is only for indoor use to reduce the potential for harmful interference to
co-channel mobile satellite systems.
Canada
This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003 and RSS-210. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including
interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.
The installer of this radio equipment must ensure that the product is located such that it does not emit RF field in excess of
Health Canada limits for the general population; consult Safety Code 6, obtainable from Health Canada’s Web site 
www.hc-sc.gc.ca/rpb. As mentioned before, the installer cannot control the antenna orientation. However, they could place
the complete product in a way that causes the problem mentioned above.
The device for operation in the band 5150-5250 MHz is only for indoor use to reduce the potential for harmful interference to
co-channel mobile satellite systems.
Be advised that high-power radars are allocated as primary users (i.e. priority users) of the bands 5250-5350 MHz and 56505850 MHz and that these radars could cause interference and/or damage to LE-LAN devices.
Canada
Cet appareil numérique de classe B est conforme aux normes NMB-003 et CNR-210 en vigueur au Canada. Son
fonctionnement est soumis aux deux conditions suivantes : (1) Cet appareil ne doit pas créer d'interférences nuisibles. (2)
Cet appareil doit tolérer toutes les interférences reçues, y compris les interférences pouvant entraîner un fonctionnement
indésirable.
L'installateur du présent matériel radio doit veiller à ce que le produit soit placé ou orienté de manière à n'émettre aucun
champ radioélectrique supérieur aux limites fixées pour le grand public par le ministère fédéral Santé Canada ; consultez le
Code de sécurité 6 sur le site Web de Santé Canada à l'adresse : www.hc-sc.gc.ca/rpb. Comme indiqué auparavant,
l'installateur ne peut pas contrôler l'orientation de l'antenne. Il peut néanmoins placer le produit tout entier de manière à
provoquer le problème décrit ci-dessus.

Les dispositifs fonctionnant dans la bande 5150-5250 MHz sont réservés uniquement pour une utilisation à l'intérieur afin de
réduire les risques de brouillage préjudiciable aux systèmes de satellites mobiles utilisant les mêmes canaux.
Les utilisateurs de radars de haute puissance sont désignés utilisateurs principaux (c.-à-d., qu'ils ont la priorité) pour les
bandes 5250-5350 MHz et 5650-5850 MHz et que ces radars pourraient causer du brouillage et/ou des dommages aux
dispositifs LAN-EL.
Europe
Sonos declares that this product herewith complies with the requirements of the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC, Low Voltage
Directive 2006/95/EC, Eco-Design Directive 2005/32/EC, RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU and the R&TTE Directive 1999/5/EC

Attention In France, operation is limited to indoor use within the band 5150-5350 MHz.
SonosNet is the propriety wireless mesh network architecture designed to provide robust transmission of high fidelity
streaming digital music. All Sonos players within the SonosNet mesh network act as both a client and access point
simultaneously. Each Sonos player expands the range of SonosNet mesh network because while each device must be within
range of at least one other Sonos player, they do not need to be within range of a central access point. In addition to
extending the range between Sonos products, SonosNet can extend the range of other data networking devices within the
home, such as Android devices directly connected to SonosNet. Due to the high network availability requirements of the
SonosNet mesh network, Sonos players do not have a standby or off mode other than removing the power cord from the AC
mains.
RF Exposure Requirements
To comply with FCC and Industry Canada exposure essential requirements, a minimum separation distance of 20cm (8
inches) is required between the equipment and the body of the user or nearby persons.
