Product Guide
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.
Autoplay Mode
Autoplay mode provides a seamless transition between your portable and home audio experience. You can walk in the door,
place your device in the SONOS DOCK, and the music that’s playing on your iPod or iPhone automatically starts playing over
Sonos. You will be prompted to select an Autoplay room during setup. You can change the autoplay room anytime (see
"Changing DOCK Settings" on page 3.)
While your device is seated in the DOCK in autoplay mode, you can select music directly from the device. You can switch to
accessory mode at any time to make music selections and control playback using a Sonos controller.
• To switch to accessory mode, simply start browsing the music on your iPhone or iPod using any Sonos controller —
playback control automatically shifts to your Sonos system.
• To return to autoplay mode, simply undock and redock your device.
Note: When your iPhone is seated in the DOCK in Autoplay mode, the ringtone for incoming
calls will play through your Sonos system. If you do not want to hear ringtones or other
system sounds associated with your device, simply set the iPhone ringer switch (located on
the left side of your phone) to silent.
Selecting Music
You can select music directly from your device when it is seated in the DOCK (autoplay mode), or you can use any Sonos
controller to make music selections and control playback (accessory mode).
