How do I connect my Sonos device to another wireless router & How do I set up multiple Sonos speakers in different rooms of my home?
Is it possible to stream music from my computer, while using the Sonos player as a storage device? You can network your speakers together by adding an Airport Express or another wireless router. We recommend using either an Apple Airport Extreme or Airport Time Capsule. If you use these products with AirPlay, Apple’s technology gets the content that your iPhone is playing up to your other devices. In order to play music wirelessly through both your Sonos and Apple devices simultaneously: 1. Network both Sonos and Apple systems via WiFi 2. Start playing music on one of the systems 3. Bring up the AirPlay menu 4 Select “Sonos Playbar” 5 Press “Select Playback Device” on your Apple device 6 Choose “Sonos Playbar” to listen to music wirelessly through both your Apple and Sonos devices simultaneously. 7 The sound will continue to play through Sonos even if you press pause on your phone, only the AirPlay icon in the upper right corner will change from blue to gray. When you resume playing music on your iPhone or iPad it makes the AirPlay icon turn blue again. This can also be done with any song playing on your computer (iTunes, Spotify, etc.) as long as you have iTunes open on one of your computers. Just go up to the AirPlay menu on whatever app is open and select ‘Sonos Playbar’ as one of the playback options. If you are streaming YouTube while using Sonos speakers, you can use the Sonos app for playback control. The volume will also integrate and you can add to a playlist or queue. Playing locally stored music doesn’t require an internet connection but we recommend AirPlaying music from your iPhone or iPad if it has been downloaded through iTunes because that will bypass any buffering issues at the source. For more information on streaming YouTube via Sonos, please review our tutorial: http://www.sonos.com/support/youtube-on-sonos/. You can’t network different routers together however you can create separate networks with them and connect each system accordingly as long as they are all on the same home WiFi network
Can I connect my iPod Touch / iPhone directly to my Play:1 or Play:3?
Can I use AirPlay with my Sonos speakers? Or is there an app to use for Airplay on Mac / Windows? Is it possible to connect a PC laptop, Apple computer and tv wirelessly together through a single router, using Sonos as the source for music streaming throughout the home?
You can connect your iPhone®, iPad™, iPod® Touch or other compatible device directly to any of our PLAY speakers. Use an Ethernet cable (sold separately) to connect from your device’s dock connector jack into one of the LAN ports on your speaker. For more information on connecting devices directly Sonos, please review our help article on: Connecting a Computer Directly To Your Speaker You are able to connect your devices to Sonos players via AirPlay®. For more information on using Airplay with Sonos, please review our tutorial: http://www.sonos.com/support/airplay-on-sonos/. To stream music from a PC or mac computer through your Sonos system, you can use the free software provided by our partner Deezer at http://www.deezer.com Since there is not a native Apple product that plays music wirelessly to multiple zones simultaneously, we would recommend having an Airport Express connected as one of your audio outputs for multi zone playback of iTunes
How do I set up SonosNet Audio and Video & What are the benefits?
SonosNet® is the name we give to a whole suite of capabilities that work together to provide you with music wirelessly throughout your home. It’s been in place since early 2005 and has been continually improved over time. Nowadays, the term SonosNet often refers specifically to the ability of our ZonePlayers™ and CONNECT components to communicate directly with each other wirelessly without help from an internet router. This SonosNet Wireless Digital Audio system is one part of what makes up a complete, whole-house wireless setup that can be used for both audio and video distribution throughout your home using WiFi™ technology. With this capability comes several major benefits: 1) You don’t need a wired home network anymore – This means that no matter where you place your speaker, it can wirelessly connect to every other device on the network. That’s even possible when one ZonePlayer™ is placed in an area so far away from your router that it wouldn’t normally be able to “see” it. Other systems also don’t have this capability and require some sort of cabling for their multi-zone playback. For more information on setting up SonosNet Wireless Digital Audio, please review our help article on: Setting Up A Wireless Network 2) You eliminate all bottlenecks from your audio sources – Most people mistakenly believe that wireless networking actually creates a faster connection than Ethernet, which isn’t true at all. In fact, wireless N networks are roughly 3 times slower than Ethernet, which can create a bottleneck for audio sources. With SonosNet Wireless Digital Audio, you eliminate the chance of this happening and can stream lossless digital natively through your home with lossless sync to every speaker in other rooms. Other systems always have some sort of latency due to their wireless method and may not stream smoothly when used together. For more information on configuring and optimizing for SonosNet Wireless Digital Audio, please review our help article on: Network Configuration & Optimization 3) You save money – The biggest cost associated with audio distribution is hardwiring your system due to all the wiring involved in creating an entire “in-wall” network throughout your house. This typically costs thousands of dollars to install. Not only does SonosNet Wireless make that unnecessary, but we have also created a system that allows you to hardwire only those speakers that need it (typically your front left/right/center channels) while letting the rest play wirelessly off your SonosNet Wireless Digital Audio Network for FREE! For more information on setting up SonosNet Wireless Digital Audio, please review our help article on: Setting Up A Wireless Network 4) You get maximum flexibility in how you set things up – When you are hardwired throughout your house, there is a finite amount of wiring available and some source components may not be able to run any longer wires or every speaker may require its own interconnect cable in order to reach location(s). With SonosNet Wireless Digital Audio, you can place each speaker wherever you want to with no worries about whether it is too far away from your router or if its wire will be long enough.
