A Handful of Help & Tips

What is the wireless range of the Sonos system?

This depends if you are using your Wi-Fi network or a dedicated Sonos network (BOOST setup). When Sonos is operating on Wi-Fi, the range extends to the range of your Wi-Fi network. As long as your Wi-Fi reaches all the rooms where you want Sonos in, range would not be an issue. However, if your Wi-Fi network isn’t reliable, or does not reach the areas you want to use Sonos, wiring your Sonos product to your router with an Ethernet cable automatically creates a dedicated Sonos wireless network. Each Sonos product then serves as a wireless repeater to expand the range of this dedicated network.

 

Do I need a BOOST?

If your Sonos system is working well, using BOOST would not give you a performance increase. Get BOOST only if

  • Your home Wi-Fi does not cover all the areas you want to use Sonos in
  • Your Wi-Fi network is generally unreliable
  • You want to use wireless access points to expand your router’s coverage

 

Can I use Sonos without an internet connection or router?

No, Sonos is not designed to work without a broadband internet connection and a router.

Can Sonos work with my existing equipment?

For an existing component stereo or home theatre system:

Sonos CONNECT links to your system’s amplifier/receiver using standard RCA audio cables, allowing you to utilize the Sonos app to stream digital music, control volumes among others, and essentially send whatever is playing on your existing gear to other Sonos speakers throughout your home, and vice-versa.

For passive (wired) speakers without an amp or receiver:

Wire your speakers directly to a Sonos CONNECT:AMP, and you can use the Sonos app to wirelessly stream digital music, control volume and other settings.

Can I connect Sonos to my TV?

Yes, with either PLAYBASE or PLAYBAR. Simply wire it your TV using the provided optical cord. You can then control it with your regular TV remote, or with your mobile devices using the free Sonos app. More than that, PLAYBASE and PLAYBAR also work as music-streaming speakers when your TV is off.
