Sonos CONNECT
The Sonos CONNECT™ is designed to be used with an external amplifier. It contains both analog and digital
outputs so you can easily connect it to your existing audio equipment.
• Use a CONNECT to listen to music in a room where you already have an amplifier, such as your home
theater system or the stereo system in your family room.
• Use a CONNECT to listen to music in your home office where you already have a computer or a pair of
powered speakers.
• Use a CONNECT if you have a distributed audio system that is driven from an amplifier in one central
location with speaker wires home-run to this central location.
New to Sonos?
It takes just a few steps to get Sonos up and running—simply follow the setup instructions packaged with
your CONNECT. Once you’ve got it set up, you can add additional Sonos products any time.
Adding to an existing Sonos system?
Sonos can be easily expanded room by room. You can turn directly to Adding to an existing Sonos system if
you are adding this CONNECT to an existing Sonos system.

Product Guide
Your home network
To use the Sonos app, your device must be on the same network as Sonos. If you need help, please go to
http://faq.sonos.com/searching.
Requirements
To access music services, Internet radio, and music stored on your computer or Network-Attached Storage
(NAS) device, make sure your network meets these requirements.
Note: Make sure your network has a high-speed Internet connection because
Sonos 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
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 isn’t a modem/router combination and you want to take advantage of Sonos’ automatic
online updates or use a streaming music service, you’ll need to install a wireless router before setting up
Sonos.
Note: Sonos communicates over a 2.4GHz home network supporting
802.11 b/g/n wireless technology. 802.11n only network configurations are not
supported—you can either change the router settings to 802.11 b/g/n or connect a
Sonos product to your router.
• Connect a Sonos BOOST or speaker 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.
• Your network is 5GHz only (not switchable to 2.4GHz).
• You have configured your router to support only 802.11n and can’t change the settings to support
802.11 b/g/n.
• For best results, you should connect the computer or NAS drive that contains your personal music library
collection to your network router using an Ethernet cable.
The Sonos app
You can use the free Sonos app with any compatible device, including:
• Sonos app (Android)—Android 4.0 and higher; certain features require later versions.
Touch the Play Store or Market button on your Android device to download the free Sonos app from
Google Play.
• Sonos app (iOS)—iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 8.0 or later; certain features may require

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). Use
the Sonos CONNECT’s audio outputs to connect it to a home theater, computer, powered speakers, or
amplifier.
If your house has structured (built-in) wiring, you can make a wired connection to the additional Sonos
products. If you don’t have structured wiring, our built-in wireless technology is ideal for you.
1. Attach the power cord and plug in the Sonos CONNECT.
The Audio indicator (green) and the Player status indicator (white) will begin to flash.
2. Choose one of the following options:
Connect to a home theater or amplifier
• If you have digital inputs on your home theater or amplifier, you can use either a TOSLINK® optical audio
cable or a digital coaxial cable to connect the Sonos CONNECT’s digital output to the digital input on the
receiver.
• If you have analog inputs on your home theater or amplifier, use a standard RCA audio cable to connect
the Sonos CONNECT’s analog audio output to the audio inputs on the receiver.
• Select the proper input channel on the receiver. See Controlling the volume from your home theater or
amplifier to adjust volume settings.
Connect to a computer or powered speakers
• If you are connecting to your computer: You will need a stereo mini to RCA Y-adapter audio cable (one
1/8-inch stereo miniplug to dual RCA male connectors) to connect the Sonos product’s analog audio
output to the computer’s audio input.
• If you are connecting to powered speakers: You may need a Y-adapter audio cable (one 1/8-inch
stereo miniplug to dual RCA male connectors) to connect the computer’s speakers to the audio outputs
on the Sonos product. If your speakers have a male 1/8-inch stereo plug, you will need to attach a
female-to-female coupler between the speaker plug and the Y-adapter audio cable.

Product Guide
3. If you are making a wireless connection, skip this step and continue on to step 4. If you are making a wired
connection, connect a standard Ethernet cable from your router or another Sonos product (or a live
network wall plate if you have built-in wiring) to one of the Ethernet switch connections on the back of the
new Sonos product.
4. Choose one of the following options:
• Using the Sonos app on a mobile device: Select Add a Player or SUB from Settings and follow the onscreen prompts to add this product to Sonos.
• Using the Sonos app on a Mac or PC: Select Add a Player or SUB from the Manage menu and follow
the prompts to add the new product to Sonos.
Thick walls, 2.4 GHz cordless telephones, or the presence of other wireless devices can interfere with or block
the wireless network signals from Sonos. 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.
Using line-in
You can connect an external source like a portable music player to any Sonos player that has a line-in
connection. The source will be automatically detected as soon as you plug it in.
To a portable music player: Use a 1/8 inch mini-stereo to RCA audio cable—plug the mini-stereo end into
the portable device and the RCA end into the Audio In connection on the Sonos player.
To an external source like a CD player: Plug a standard RCA cable into the analog Audio In connections on
the back of your Sonos player.
Playing music
Using a mobile device: Touch Line-In from the Menu and choose the line-in device.

adjust the volume in the autoplay room. Use the slider to set a default volume.
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.
To change the line-in encoding setting, select one of the following options:
• Using the Sonos app on a mobile device: From Settings, select Advanced Settings -> Audio
Compression.
• Using the Sonos app on a PC: Select Manage -> Settings -> Advanced.
• Using the Sonos app on a Mac: Select Sonos -> Preferences -> Advanced.
Line-out
Controlling the volume from your home theater or amplifier
To control the volume exclusively from your home theater or amplifier, you can change the line-out level on the
Sonos CONNECT to Fixed by selecting one of the following options:
• Using the Sonos app on a mobile device: Select Room Settings from Settings. Select the Sonos
product attached to the receiver. Select Line-Out Level, and choose Fixed.
• Using the Sonos app on a PC: Select Manage -> Settings. Select the Sonos product attached to the
receiver. Choose Fixed from the Line-Out Level drop-down on the Basic tab.
• Using the Sonos app on a Mac: Select Sonos -> Preferences -> Rooms Settings. Select the Sonos
product attached to the receiver, and then choose Fixed from the Line-Out Level drop-down on the
Basic tab.
Note: When you change the line-out level to Fixed on your Sonos CONNECT you
will not be able to adjust the volume or the equalization settings using a Sonos app.
