Charging contacts

• Just set Move on the charging base for easy recharging—no extra wires or cables needed.

• Charging base is for indoor use only—be sure to keep it dry.

• Move’s remaining battery life is always visible in the

Sonos app.

100-240VAC, ~50/60Hz, 1.2A. Output: 18VDC, 2.5A

Make sure the speaker is seated properly in the base and the charging contacts are touching.

Select a location

You can put your speaker just about anywhere. Here are a few guidelines:

• Move is made to give you powerful sound anywhere—auto Trueplay tuning periodically balances the sound for wherever you are and whatever you’re listening to. The microphone has to be on for automatic tuning so if you don’t leave the microphone on all the time, turn it on for a few minutes whenever you move your speaker so it can automatically adjust the sound for your new surroundings.

• Move sounds great even when placed next to a wall or on a shelf. For best performance, leave at least

1" (2.5 cm) space around the back of the speaker.

• It’s ultra durable. With a tough outer shell and IP56 rating, Sonos Move is built to withstand falls, bumps, moisture, dust, UV rays, and extreme temperatures. Just don’t leave it out in a soaking rain storm, and remember that the charging base that’s included is for indoor use only.

• Don’t use or store your Sonos Move upside down.

Auto Trueplay

You can put Sonos Move just about anywhere. Auto Trueplay tuning optimizes the sound for wherever you are and whatever you’re listening to. Your speaker’s microphone is used to detect the environment so auto

Trueplay can make periodic tuning adjustments to deliver the best sound.

If you don’t want the microphone on all the time, be sure to turn it on whenever you move the speaker. Your

Sonos Move starts retuning when you pick it up, and continues to adjust the sound for a few minutes after you place it in a new location.

Note: Auto Trueplay is disabled while you’re using Bluetooth.

SONOS USER GUIDE

Microphone on/off

The microphone is used for voice control, and for auto Trueplay tuning. Touch to turn the microphone on or off.

When the microphone light is on,

• If you have a voice assistant, voice control is on and your voice assistant is ready to respond.

• Auto Trueplay tuning is enabled so Move can automatically adjust its sound for your surroundings.

When the microphone light is off,

• If you have a voice assistant, voice control is off.

• Auto Trueplay tuning is disabled.

Switch modes

Set Move up on your WiFi, then use the mode switch on the back of Move to switch between Bluetooth and

WiFi. When you use Bluetooth for the first time, you’ll need to pair Move with your mobile device. Once paired, they’ll reconnect automatically next time.

Bluetooth pairing

Select a location

You can put your speaker just about anywhere. For maximum performance, we have a few guidelines:

• The Play:5 is a substantial and powerful speaker and should be placed on a flat surface that is robust and durable enough to properly support it. Make sure the Play:5’s rubber feet sit completely on the flat surface.

• Allow at least 2" perimeter all around the Play:5 including its power cord.

• For a single Play:5 speaker we recommend positioning the speaker horizontally, enabling stereo sound over a wide sound stage. (A single Play:5 speaker positioned in vertical mode is a mono speaker—there is no stereo separation.)

• Place the Play:5 across the room from where you’ll be listening (at or close to your ear height for best results).

• For stereo pair placement information, see Stereo pairs

.

• The Play:5 is humidity resistant so you can use it in the bathroom; however it is not water resistant so don’t position it near water or leave it outside during a rain storm.

Play music through your favorite speakers

Connect your favorite bookshelf, floor-standing, in-wall, or in-ceiling speakers to Amp to stream all the music you love. Connect a turntable, stereo, or portable music player and play the sound on any Sonos speaker.

Enhance your TV sound

Connect Amp to your TV to create the ultimate entertainment system.

• Use Amp and a pair of 3rd-party speakers to create two front audio channels.

• Use Amp with third-party speakers to add surround sound if you already have a Sonos home theater speaker (Beam, Playbase, Playbar, or another Amp) connected to your TV.

(For even deeper sound, add a Sonos Sub or connect a third-party subwoofer.)

See Connect Amp to your TV for setup information.

Select a location

You can place Amp just about anywhere— in an electronics rack, on a shelf, or on a credenza with your TV.

Rack mounted

• Amp mounts perfectly in any electronics rack.

• Place two Amps side by side in a 2U rack.

• Place four Amps in a 3U rack.

Placed on a credenza

• Place horizontally on a stable and level surface at least 3 in / 50 mm from the TV.

• Don’t block the TV’s IR sensor.

• If put on a shelf, place at the front and keep 3" (minimum) clearance on all sides.

SONOS USER GUIDE

• Don’t block the front of Amp so you can reach the touch controls.

Connect the cables

Attach desired speakers

Your speakers’ power rating should be at least 125W for 8 ohm speakers, and at least 200W for 4 ohm speakers. Do not connect speakers rated at less than 4 ohm.

Note: Amp can drive speakers with nominal impedance above 4 ohms. Two pairs of 8 ohm speakers wired in parallel are also supported. Don’t wire your speakers in series because it will result in poor sound quality.

• Place horizontally on a stable and level surface.

• If you put it on a shelf, for best performance place it at the front and leave at least 2" space all around.

Connect the cables

Connect the power cord

Attach the power cord and plug in your Port.

If you’re connecting to powered speakers

You may need a Y-adapter audio cable (one 1/8" stereo miniplug to dual RCA male connectors) to connect powered speakers to the audio outputs on the Sonos product. If your speakers have a male 1/8" stereo plug, you’ll need to attach a female-to-female coupler between the speaker plug and the Y-adapter audio cable.

If you don’t have the Sonos app, download it from the app store on your mobile device. You’ll use it to set up and control your Sonos system.

If you’re connecting to an audio/video receiver (AVR) or amplifier

• If you have digital inputs on your AVR or amplifier, you can use a digital coaxial cable to connect Port’s digital output to the digital input on the receiver.

• If you have analog inputs on your AVR or amplifier, use a standard RCA audio cable to connect Port’s analog audio output to the audio inputs on the receiver.

• Select the proper input channel on the receiver. See Control volume from your AVR or amplifier to adjust volume settings.

If you don’t have the app, download it from the app store on your mobile device. You’ll use it to set up and control your Sonos system.

If you’re connecting to a computer

You’ll need a stereo mini to RCA Y-adapter audio cable (one 1/8" stereo miniplug to dual RCA male connectors) to connect from Port’s analog audio output to your computer’s audio input.

If you don’t have the app, download it from the app store on your mobile device. You’ll use it to set up and control your Sonos system.

Line-in

Connect an external source like a phono preamp (your turntable may have a built-in phone preamp), or other audio device. Learn more .

Line-out

Control volume from your AVR or amplifier (Fixed line-out level)

Set Port’s line-out level to Fixed if you want to control the volume exclusively from your AVR or amplifier. You won’t be able to use the Sonos app to adjust the volume or equalization settings.

Go to settings and choose Fixed for the Line-Out Level .

Sub

The Sonos Sub takes your audio experience to the next level—

• Instantly adds a dimension of deep bass impact to your audio listening experience.

• Allows placement anywhere because it’s wireless and compact—position it vertically or horizontally on any floor surface.

• The top of the acoustic slot doubles as a handle so you can lift it.

• See Getting started when you’re ready to add a Sub to your Sonos system.

Note: The Sonos Sub is designed for use with most Sonos speakers, except Sonos Connect, Port and Move.

Make sure you set up at least one speaker before adding the Sub.

Use only the supplied power cord to connect to a power outlet (using a third party power cord will void your warranty). Be sure to use the proper power adapter for your country. Push the power cord firmly into the Sub until it is flush with the surface.

Select a location

Choose a location—it’s designed to provide optimal sound wherever you place it.

• Use the acoustic slot as a handle to lift Sub out of the box. You should always bend your knees when lifting heavy objects to avoid undue stress on your back.

• Make sure at least one side of the slot is free from obstruction. If you place it vertically against a wall, don’t block the front opening. If you place the Sub horizontally on the floor, don’t put anything on top of it.

• The Sub is designed to sit on the floor. You can place it in a corner, against the wall, behind, under, or next to any piece of furniture on any kind of floor surface.

• Position the Sub either vertically or horizontally. If you’re going to use it horizontally, you can attach the

permanent felt feet (included). See Attach the feet

for more information.

Make sure at least one side of the rectangular opening (acoustic slot) is unobstructed.

• If you place the Sub vertically flush against a wall, don’t block the front acoustic slot.

• If you place the Sub horizontally on the floor, don’t put anything on top of it. Leave at least 1" clearance along the top of the Sub if placing under furniture.

SONOS USER GUIDE

Note: The Sub contains strong magnets. Don’t place the Sub near equipment that is sensitive to magnetic fields.

Attach the feet

If you’re placing Sub horizontally on a floor, you can attach permanent felt feet (included) to protect your floor.

If you’re putting it on a rug or using it vertically, no need to adhere the felt feet.

Note: The felt feet are not removable—a strong adhesive will keep them permanently attached to the Sub.

Boost

For when existing WiFi isn't reliable enough for streaming music—

• Boost broadcasts 360° signals through walls and ceilings for flawless coverage.

• Streams without interference in the most challenging WiFi environments.

• Bypasses your WiFi to create a separate high-performance wireless network just for Sonos speakers.

When to use a Boost

• Your WiFi is slow or temperamental, or your network is already in high demand with streaming video, gaming, and internet usage.

• WiFi doesn’t reach all the rooms where you want to use Sonos. Extend the range of your Sonos system by placing a Boost in between the Sonos speaker that’s out of reach and the rest of the Sonos system.

• Your network is 5 GHz only (not switchable to 2.4 GHz).

• Your router supports only 802.11n (you can’t change the settings to support 802.11b/g/n).

Select a location

If you purchased a Boost to replace a Sonos product that’s connected to your router, first add the Boost to your Sonos system, then plug it into your router and move the one that was originally wired.

If you purchased a Boost to extend the range of your Sonos system, place the Boost in between the Sonos speaker that’s out of reach and the rest of the Sonos system.
