• Play/Pause functionality remembers the last thing you were listening to. You can even skip to the next
track with a double press.
• Pair two PLAY:1s for amazing stereo sound or use two PLAY:1s as rear speakers for your Sonos
PLAYBAR® home theater system.
• Works seamlessly with the complete range of Sonos products.
New to Sonos?
It takes just a few steps to get your Sonos system up and running—simply follow the setup instructions
packaged with your PLAY:1. 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. If you are adding a PLAY:1 to an existing Sonos system, see
“Adding to an Existing Sonos System” for more information.
Your Home Network
To access Internet music services, Internet radio, and any digital music stored on your computer or NetworkAttached Storage (NAS) device, your home network must meet the following requirements:
2
Product Guide
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 app on an Android™ or iOS device, or you are setting up Sonos wirelessly, you will need
a wireless router. Please visit our website at http://faq.sonos.com/apps for more information.
Note: Sonos communicates over a 2.4GHz home network supporting 802.11
b/g/n 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.
• 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.
The Sonos App
You can use the free Sonos app with any compatible device, including:
• Sonos app (Android)—Android 2.2 and higher; certain features require later versions. (Standard wireless
setup is only supported on Android 2.3 or 4.0 and higher.)
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 7.0 and higher; certain features may require
later versions.
Touch the App Store button on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad to download the free Sonos app, or
download the application from iTunes®. (If you download from iTunes, you will need to sync before you
see the Sonos logo display on your device.)
• Sonos app (PC)—Windows® XP SP3 and higher; certain features require later versions. (Standard
wireless setup is only supported on Windows 7 and higher.)

Press these buttons to adjust the volume up and down.
Threaded mounting hole
1/4 inch /
20-thread
The PLAY:1 has an integrated mounting hole on the back of the unit so
it can be wall-mounted if desired (mounting bracket not included.) See
“Wall Mounting” for more information.
Ethernet port
You can use an Ethernet cable (supplied) to connect the PLAY:1 to a
router, computer, or additional network device such as a networkattached storage (NAS) device.
AC power (mains) input
(100 - 240 VAC, 50/60 Hz)
Use only the supplied power cord to connect to a power outlet (using a
third-party power cord will void your warranty).
Insert the power cord firmly into the PLAY:1 until it is flush with the
bottom of the unit.
Selecting a Location
You can locate a Sonos PLAY:1 just about anywhere. For maximum enjoyment, we have a few guidelines:
• The PLAY:1 is designed to work well even when placed next to a wall or other surface. For optimum
performance, maintaining more than 1 inch (2.5 cm) clearance around the back of the unit is
recommended.
• Care should be taken if placing the PLAY:1 close to an older CRT (cathode ray tube) television. If you
notice any discoloration or distortion of your picture quality, simply move the PLAY:1 further from the
television.
• The PLAY:1 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.
Wall Mounting
The Sonos PLAY:1 has a standard 1/4”-20 threaded mounting socket. If desired, you can easily wall mount
your PLAY:1 using a suitable mounting bracket (not included). Simply choose a location that’s close to an
electrical outlet (power cord length is 2m), taking care to avoid heat, steam, dripping water or hidden wiring,
and follow the instructions included with the wall mount kit. You can hang it right side up (control buttons on
top) or upside down (control buttons on the bottom).
Note: Be sure the wall mount bracket you purchase will support at least 8lbs. (3.6
kgs) and has a 1/4”-20 threaded post.
Adding to an Existing Sonos System
Once you’ve got your Sonos music system set up, you can easily add more Sonos products any time (up to
32).
1. Select a location for your PLAY:1 (see “Selecting a Location” above for optimal placement guidelines.)

2. Attach the power cord to the PLAY:1 and apply power. Be sure to push the power cord firmly into the
bottom of the PLAY:1 until it is flush with the bottom of the unit.
Note: If you want to make 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 an Ethernet port on the back of the PLAY:1.
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 app 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.
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. See “Basic Troubleshooting” for additional information.
Tuning the Sound For Your Room (Trueplay™)
While you can locate Sonos speakers just about anywhere, the size and shape of your room and the objects in
it can distort your speaker’s sound. To ensure a speaker sounds right no matter where you place it, Sonos
speakers include Trueplay. If you have an iPhone (4S or later), iPad, or iPod Touch running iOS7 or higher, you
can use Trueplay tuning to make every Sonos speaker sound right for the room and true to the music.
Sonos uses your iOS device’s microphone to measure acoustic distortion in the room and then Trueplay
adapts your Sonos speaker's sound for its position in the room.
1. Select Settings -> Room Settings.
2. Select the room your speaker is located in.
3. Select Trueplay Tuning and follow the on-screen prompts.
Note: Trueplay tuning is not available if VoiceOver is enabled on your iOS device. If
you want to tune your speakers, first turn VoiceOver off on your device and then
select Settings -> Room Settings from the Sonos app.
Creating a Stereo Pair
The stereo pair setting allows you to group two PLAY:1s, PLAY:3s or PLAY:5®s in the same room to create a
wider stereo experience. In this configuration, one unit serves as the left channel and the other serves as the
right channel. You cannot create a mixed stereo pair—the Sonos products in the stereo pair must be the
same.
6
Product Guide
Optimum placement information
• When creating a stereo pair, it is best to place the two Sonos products 8 to 10 feet away from each other.
• Your favorite listening position should be 8 to 12 feet from the paired Sonos products. Less distance will
increase bass, more distance will improve stereo imaging.
Note: The stereo pair setting is for use with PLAY:1, PLAY:3 and PLAY:5 units
only. You cannot create a mixed stereo pair—both Sonos products in the stereo
pair must be the same.
Using the Sonos app on a mobile device
1. Select Settings -> Room Settings.
2. Select a PLAY:1 to pair.
3. Select Create Stereo Pair, and follow the prompts to set up the stereo pair.
To separate a stereo pair:
1. Select Settings -> Room Settings.
2. Select the stereo pair you wish to separate (the stereo pair appears with L + R in the room name.)
3. Select Separate Stereo Pair.

right surround channels in your Sonos surround sound experience. You can either configure surround
speakers during the setup process, or follow the steps below to add them.
• Make sure the Sonos products are the same—you cannot combine a PLAY:1 and a PLAY:3 to function
as surround speakers.

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.
Note: We recommend using the Sonos app for Mac or PC to add shared folders.
For more information, please visit our website at http://faq.sonos.com/manage.

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 component, 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 error 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
If you are using a computer, firewall software 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 app on your Mac or PC. Please go to our website 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 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.
• If you have any Sonos products connected to your router, temporarily remove them.
12
Product Guide
• Connect an Ethernet cable from the computer directly to the back of a Sonos product (a BOOST in the
illustration above), 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 wired Sonos
product by unplugging the power cord, and then plugging it back in.
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 unit is powered on, make sure the volume is set to a suitable level; make sure MUTE is not on; if
this is a CONNECT:AMP™, make sure the 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. See “Player Status Indicators” for more
information.
• Move your device with the Sonos app on it 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.
Not all rooms are visible or Sonos app doesn’t work in some rooms
You are probably experiencing wireless interference. You can change the wireless channel your Sonos system
is operating on by following the steps below.
• Using a the Sonos app on a mobile device: From the Settings menu, touch Advanced Settings ->
Wireless Channel. Choose another wireless channel from the list.
• Using the Sonos app on a PC: Select Settings -> Advanced from the Manage menu. On the General
tab, select another wireless channel from the list.
• Using the Sonos app on a Mac: Select Preferences -> Advanced from the Sonos menu. On the
General tab, select another wireless channel from the list.
It may take several seconds for the switch to take effect. If you have music playing, a short music dropout may
occur during the wireless channel change.
I have a new router
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 (if one is
usually connected).
Wait for your Sonos products to restart. The status indicator light will change to solid white on each
product when the restart is complete.

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 website
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 5650-5850 MHz and that these radars could cause interference and/or damage to LE-LAN devices.

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 when installed and used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. A

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.
