The Sonos BRIDGE is an easy, cost-effective way to expand your Sonos Music System. This tiny device connects to your router, allowing you to use any of your Sonos music players wirelessly, anywhere in your home. By creating a dedicated wireless network for Sonos, it offers more stable performance than using a Wi-Fi® connection for your Sonos speakers. It's a great way to ensure you can enjoy more music in more rooms throughout your home.


Sonos Bridge and players Sonos multi-room system

Improve the range of your Sonos system

The Bridge also lets you extend the range of your Sonos system. Just place a Bridge between a player in your system and the new area where you'd like to listen, such as a detached garage, for example. Or enjoy your music on outdoor speakers — easily control a player located indoors from your pool on the far side of your yard.


Expand your Sonos system

You can have up to 32 Sonos music players in your system, and each one can play an independent selection of individual tracks or playlists. Listen to jazz in the den while your spouse plays rock music in the kitchen, or pump a single playlist of songs throughout the entire house during a party.


Product Highlights:

  • communicates with other players via proprietary Sonos wireless technology, or wired Ethernet connections
  • connects to your router, allowing Sonos music players in your system to operate wirelessly
  • automatic wireless setup
  • 2-port Ethernet switch
  • 4-3/8"W x 1-11/16"H x 5-5/16"D
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
  • cannot play music — requires at least one Sonos player

Features

Overview: The Sonos Bridge is used to connect a Sonos Digital Music System to your home network or to extend the wireless range of your existing Sonos Digital Music System. The Sonos Bridge makes setting up your wireless Sonos system fast and easy by simply connecting the Bridge to your router to instantly activate SonosNet (a secure wireless mesh network). All your Sonos players (Connect, Connect:Amp, Play:3, Play:5, and Play:1) will work wirelessly and can be placed anywhere in your home. Although the Bridge doesn't play music like a Sonos player, it's an effective way to extend the range of your Sonos system and expand the Controller's wireless coverage. It's also a way to connect other products to the Internet.

Note: This unit is not a stand-alone device and requires at least one Sonos player (Connect, Connect:Amp, Play:3, Play:5, or Play:1 device)

Instant Wired/Wireless Setup: The Bridge connects to your router using a standard Ethernet cable connection (2-port switch, 10/100Mbps, auto MDI/MDIX). Then, a simple press of the button located on top of the Bridge will start SonosNet, a secure AES encrypted, peer-to-peer wireless mesh network that enables other Sonos products to control and play music wirelessly.

System Flexibility: Once you've set up your Bridge, you can easily add components anytime. If your home has structured (built-in) wiring, you can make a wired connection to additional Sonos players or Bridges. If you don't have structured wiring, you can take advantage of Sonos' built-in wireless technology. The Bridge provides flexibility to place your Sonos players in any room of the house and connect them all wirelessly.

Ethernet Ports: The Bridge has two Ethernet jacks on the back to bring standard Internet connectivity to your set-top box, PC, Game Console or NAS drive.

Range Expansion: You can stream music wirelessly to a remote location by placing a Bridge between your Sonos player in a remote location and the rest of your Sonos system. You can also improve Controller access to SonosNet by placing the Bridge in areas where wireless coverage needs a boost. The Bridge is ideal for retrofits, where your Sonos players might be in one location instead of being placed throughout your home.

Home Network Requirements: To access Internet music services, Internet radio, and any digital music stored on your computer or Network-Attached Storage (NAS) device, your home network must meet the following requirements:

  • 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 fluctuation in 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 don't have a router, you will need to purchase and install one before setting up your system.
    • If you are going to use a Sonos controller application on an Android smartphone, iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or other tablet, you may need a wireless router in your home network.
  • Connect at least one Sonos component to your home network router using an Ethernet cable, and then you can add other Sonos components wirelessly.
  • 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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy set up, great app that manages your whole home sound

Pros: Ease of use, very reasonable cost.

Bridge = Good idea

Written By walkman666, NYC on Friday, March 07, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Inexpensive, small solution for expanding a Sonos network in one's home, for establishing the required ethernet connection one's router for use with additional Sonos devices. I have a Connect in one room, and two Play 1s in stereo mode in my master bedroom. So far, everything works and was easy to set-up. The Bridge is a nice, affordable devise to either create the necessary hard-wire connection, or to expand one's mesh network.

Pros: Inexpensive, small footprints, works

Cons: None

Written By MV, New Orleans on Saturday, January 04, 2014

Functional product. Currently using with a number of sonos products to extend the wireless range so that I can control speakers that are outside while outside (despite the connect amp being inside).

Pros: Easy set up

A Device that I wondered about

Written By MGreene, Knoxville, TN on Friday, January 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When I examined the Sonos collection of devices, I wondered why in the world a bridge was necessary, instead of just having a device that talked to my ethernet router without any go-between. Now that I've used the Bridge with a Sonos Connect, the lights finally came on. This is kind of like a Master Control Router for all of the places on wants to stream music (or talk) to, in a home or small business. By going through this simple bridge, one gets to bypass going to multiple devices similar to the Sonos Connect, Sonos Play Stations, Sonos Amp, etc., and set them up to talk back to the internet using multiple control points. The bridge lets one see one menu for everything and select from it to provide service for multiple locations. It's great!

Pros: Simple, even to the point of providing an output jack to connect the Ethernet router to whatever might've been needed on the port that the bridge uses. I like that kind of thinking!

This unit replaced another Bridge which was hit by lightening. This is very easy to install and took less than 15 minutes to set up. One word of caution: If you are replacing a Bridge, your previous settings (Radio, Favorites etc) might be deleted. Other than that, this is a great running system

Pros: Easy to set up and takes up very little space

Cons: None

Written By PaulA, Centreville, VA on Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have this supporting a PLAY:1 and a PLAY:5 and the syncrhonisation appears to be good so far with no drops. Not sure what the range will be like when I one in the top level. Maybe having this support power over ethernet would enable easier positioning nearer the middle of the house.

Pros: Small and easy to setup.

Cons: Would have loved for this to have a line in, then it would have been 5 stars. I have not googled this yet, but would like to be able to add new remotes without having to push the button.

I purchased the Bridge with a Connect Amp and am very pleased. It is easy to set up with great sound and functionality. It is a compact unit, which is nice. I hope Sonos introduces feature to play simultaneously through computer speakers.

Pros: Easy set-up.

Cons: Cannot play music simultaneously through speakers hooked up to computer. Did not know wireless router was needed to use smart phone app as controller.

Device easily connected to Play 5 and Android phone and iPad used as controllers. The system has been up and running for about a month and there hasn't been the slightest hiccup.

Pros: Ease of installation, use, stability.

Cons: None at this time.

This is one of those components which you just need...not glamorous, but functional. My BrRIDGE was purchased to replace one zapped by lightening. Without it I lost use of my Sonos system in my exercise room and shop. Easy to install and connect with the system, and I have music back for workouts and while routing and sawing. Flawless, as is usual with Sonos.

Pros: Easy to install, reasonably priced.

Cons: Not a one.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fantastic! I bought the Play 5, set it up in about 10 minutes and have been using it as a sort of portable speaker since. I liked it so much I bought another play 5 one week later. Sound is better than I thought possible for a wireless speaker. This is easily the equivalent of a paid of $500 WIRED speakers. Great product!

Pros: Great sound, easy set up. Easy control through IPhone. Wife even likes it!

Cons: Not water proof and no option for batteries - both would make it more pool-side friendly.

Sonos BRIDGE Excels

Written By FirstCircle, Silver Spring, MD on Monday, July 08, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sonos Bridge is a nice compact device that integrates well into a computer setup because it takes up little space. It broadcasts far and wide as I used it for an outdoor party I had to serve my favorite music to Sonos PLAY:5 that I set far away from the Bridge in my yard. All of the music was received and played with zero delay and output loud and clear. The guests were intrigued by this device. I use the Bridge to support my Sonos PLAY:5 daily as I work from home and enjoy listening to a variety of radio stations and my music throughout each day.

Pros: The BRIDGE is nice and compact and beautifully designed. I can set the BRIDGE in a variety of locations because of its compactness that helps with my crowded home office.

Cons: None

I look forward to expanding my use day by day. Thanks for your inventiveness!

Written By Troutdad, Indian Wells, CA on Thursday, July 04, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

One of the best purchases I have made for entertainment. The home I live in is nearly impossible to wire for convential speakers. I had read about Sonos and it seemed like one of the best options. It is super easy to setup. It takes longer to get it out of the box than to set it up. Having my IPad as the remote is awesome. I use Rhapsody and Sirius as my primary music sources and i listen to a lot of music. I had been using a docking station contacted to my receiver and it worked fine but i found myself just listening to a channel or playlist most of the time. Now with my Sonso, I hear something I like or what to listen to more of an artist, I just pickup my IPad. I have to say the Sonso ap is very user friendly. The sound quality is good. I will be buying additional units for the other rooms in my house.

Pros: Easy setup Access to all my music

Cons: Not cheap

Happy with my BRIDGE

Written By RLoving, Denver, CO on Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My experience with the BRIDGE started with the helpful folks at Crutchfield walking my through the needed components to hook up my receiver and speakers to a Sonos system.

Out of the box the BRIDGE was easy to setup and had all of the wiring needed to attached the unit to my router. One item of note on page 8 of the online manual it states:

"Connect a Sonos component to your broadband router using an Ethernet cable (supplied)."

I initially connected mine to the broadband router in my home but was having firewall trouble when attempting to connect to the bridge from my PC. As a result, I made a quick change to connect to my wireless router and the firewall issues were quickly resolved. My firewall is managed at the wireless router not my broadband router.

After that was resolved I installed the included software from the CD on my PC and downloaded the App on my mobile device and was enjoying my system in less than an hour.

I also purchased the CONNECT to receive the Sonos signal from the BRIDGE at my receiver. Next I will be adding a PLAY5 to expand my system to a room where the speakers are not wired into the house.

Pros: Easy setup Purchase simplicity and customer service from the folks at Crutchfield

Cons: Clarify the users guide related to the router used to eliminate confusion on firewall issues.

Written By James M., Longview, WA on Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I actually got an open box of this item from Crutchfield to go with a Sonos 5 I had just purchased. Set up is really easy. I'm going from a loft down 16 ft, then down another 50 ft, where the Sonos 5 is almost directly under the bridge. I've only had a to change the channels( for it to work twice). This whole system is a no brainer. If you have the money and don't want a trraditional "stereo" I strongly recommend Sonos for all music lovers.

Pros: Easy set up, AC cord good length, inconspicuous.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I always thought Sonos was too expensive for what can do. Not true! The convenience this product provides is unbelievable. I can sit on my patio and control the songs and volume for separate rooms or all together at the same time. The app really seals the deal for this product. It synchs beautifully with your iTunes and your computer does not have to remain on. You can select songs to play next in line after your current song is over, cut it off midstream, or add it to play at the end of your current queue. This will take the sound in your home to the next level.

Pros: Awesome

Cons: The price can get high depending on how many rooms you want to add. The good thing is that you can add on later or buy one of the portable units to cover to rooms that you wouldn't want sound in at the same time.

Perfect

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I read all of the reviews for this product on Crutchfield's website, and was convinced to make the purchase. I had been using Apple Airport Expresses to stream music throughout my house, but constantly lost the signal and needed to reset my Airports. Even when they were "connected", the signal would always fade in and out. No more with Sonos. I've been running almost the same setup as I had before, but with Sonos components, and not one single issue. The system was extremely easy to set up, and moving components from room to room is a brease! The best part of it is the controller. I downloaded it from the Sonos website in about a minute, then loaded the app on my iPhone. I can control music in the house from either, interchangeably.

Pros: Signal strength is outstanding. In three months, I have not had one song "skip," nor has there been a hint of interference.

Cons: I waited too long to make the purchase!

Excellent wireless coverage

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My house layout is a little bit tricky to have a strong wifi signal. Eventhough is a smart house the idea is two use my two Play 5 without any wires so I can moved around the house. I just install two bridges one in each floor and the coverage is amazing. It does not matter if I'm in the porch, second floor or washing my car in the front of my house I never loose the connection on my Sonos.

Pros: Signal coverage is amazing!!!!! And footprint is perfect to locate it anywhere. In addition this is a plug and play device so you just need around 5 min to get it ready to use it.

Cons: Nothing.

Does its job perfectly

Not much to say - took just a few minutes to set the bridge up with my ZP-90. Works perfectly and the small form factor makes it easy to hide. I love the Sonos system!

Phenomenal Wireless System

Written By Toby L., Davidsonville, MD on Monday, January 03, 2011

I did a lot of research on many components of the Sonos system for months before I finally decided to pull the trigger. I ordered a Zone Player 90 (hooked to my AVR in family room), an S-5 (for my fire pit) and of course a Zone Bridge which is the heart of the system. I expected this wireless system to be awesome when it was set up but it is so much more than that. Why I didn't buy this 3 years ago is beyond me. The set up for everything was really a piece of cake. I did run into a minor problem when trying to add my iTunes into the Sonos software of my PC. It turned out to be a glitch with my McAfee anti-virus software and was easily resolved directly with Sonos over the phone (they accessed my computer remotely and fixed the problem). Also downloaded the Sonos app on my iTouch which works seamlessly as the controller for my system. The customer service that Crutchfield and Sonos (direct) offers is just phenomenal. I now have an incredible wireless system in my home that I can build upon for years!! If you are wavering on this purchase, JUST BUY IT!

Great Product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am using the Zone Bridge with my wireless backup system. It is not only a wireless router to my computer, but I am using it to store my iTunes library. Consequently, I did not have to connect my computer to the Zone Bridge with an Ethernet Cable. I am able to maintain a wireless network. With that said, I love the SONOS system.

Worked Perfectly as a Range Extender

Written By Anonymous, Hollywood, CA on Tuesday, August 03, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After originally purchasing a Sonos system, it was evident that I needed to increase the signal to the farthest component which was 75 feet from the ZoneBridge. The Crutchfield rep was not certain that adding an additional off-network ZoneBridge between the distant component and the existing ZoneBridge would work to boost the signal or not. He suggested that I try and see what happens and if it was not successful I could return the item for a refund. I simply placed the new ZoneBridge between the existing ZoneBridge and component, powered it up and voila!!...problem fixed. The initial question as to if this was going to work or not centered around the fact that the 2nd ZoneBridge was not going to be on the network.

For those needing to boost their Sonos signal without having to add cat5 cable all over the house, this is the fix!

Great Product

Written By ScottG, Cleveland on Wednesday, September 24, 2008

All of the sonos products are very easy to setup and to use. The zonebridge is no different. I purchased my system (BU130) with a zoneplayer 100 and a zoneplayer 80 and had to use the 80 to connect to my router. The zonebridge has allowed me to connect my zoneplayer 80 to the receiver which I had intended to use it for. For the price, it is definitely worth it to liberate another player from the internet connection.

Overall, the sonos system is extremely easy to use and works great for homes which in-wall systems are either not possible or simply too expensive. One nice feature is to centralize your music onto a Network Accessed Storage device which is compatable with sonos (See CNET for more info on this) and access your entire library from one location without having to leave a computer on. The free trials to rhapsody and other sites have really opened my eyes to the full potential of this system. This is definitely a great, well designed product.

Excelente!

Tuve algunos problemas para que el sistema lo identifique. Pero cuando lo reconoció todo anduvo perfecto. Sonos da otra dimensión a la música en mi casa.
El Zone Bridge 100 extendió el alcance para un sector donde la señal era débil.
Excelente producto y sistema. Ampliamente recomendable!

Ir can be but a speaker will act Like a bridge. So if the speaker is 50 ft from the bridge put another speaker in between. [ YADIRA  Aug 15, 2014 ]
My situation has the bridge and a Sonos Connect device located around 70-80 feet apart. If you look at Sonos' literature, their claim for range is for an "average" distance of 50-60 feet, such that they are likely conservative. If you just get online and do a Google search using something like "Sonos Bridge Range", you'll find several articles that address the subject. Sonos does mention that you can use another Bridge to extend their range, if necessary. If it goes like activating the Connect device, that takes a couple of clicks to do. [ MAURICE  Aug 15, 2014 ]
Hi Ken- Your answer is technical in nature and my input can only be circumstantial, that is to say based on my experience. If you contact SONOS they will answer any question you may have as they have done for me. [ ARNOLD J  Aug 14, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Sonos Play 1 (or any other Sonos player, for that matter) can't be connected directly to a router, however, you can purchase the Sonos Bridge and connect the Bridge into the router. The Bridge will then send the wireless audio signals to the Sonos Play 1. And, yes, the Sonos player has to be plugged in for power. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Jun 11, 2014 ]  Staff
Mary R, I have a SONOS BRIDGE connected to my ONKYO TX-SR605 receiver in my Family Room that outputs through seven (7) speakers [i.e. center, two front, two surround, two rear & subwoofer] and it works fine. I'm considering buying another SONOS BRIDGE to connect to my ONKYO TX-NR808 receiver in my basement which is wired to a different set of seven (7) speakers. The main system is a SONOS PLAY 5 system in the master bedroom. Hope this helps. Lindsey [ LINDSEY S  Dec 27, 2013 ]
Mary: Yes, you only need one Bridge that you will connect off of your router. From ther you can link up multiple speakers (I currently have three and will be adding a fourth) off of that one Bridge. Hope that helps. [ CURT  Dec 17, 2013 ]
one bridge, I hope you have better luck then I had. I spent a totall of 4.5 hours ovev 3 days with their teck and we could not get Sonos to work on my PC. I will unfortunately be sending it back to Crutchfield. Good Luck [ ANTHONY J  Dec 13, 2013 ]
Only one bridge is necessary [ LAURIE S  Dec 11, 2013 ]
Yes just one, I have one with 4 speakers and works great. [ YADIRA  Dec 11, 2013 ]
Yes, only one is needed. But not if you have a Playbar. That will replace the Bridge. If you don't have a playbar, you will need just one. And that has to be hard wired to your dsl or wireless modem. It should have a eithernet port on it. An eithernet cable is included with the bridge. And you must download the sonos app onto a smart phone or tablet. That is your remote control. At the moment Sonus is giving way bridges with each speaker. So I have extras, they sit in my closet. [ JOHN  Dec 11, 2013 ]
Hi Mary. Yes. [ DAVID  Dec 11, 2013 ]
We only use one Bridge hardwired our wireless router for a very large, old farm house with a five speaker set-up. Suppose you might need another to boost the signal if you have a huge area to cover; I would test before investing in another Bridge. We do have a second Bridge in another building on our property about 150 feet from the house. There was no way to put a Bridge between the house and the outbuilding so for that I ran an ethernet cable underground connected to the Sonos Connect in the house closest to that building...works like a charm. [ THOMAS  Dec 11, 2013 ]
I have a sound bar on my tv and a play 1 in my bed room both on one bridge. [ JOHN R  Dec 11, 2013 ]
Most likely one will do the trick. One needs to be plugged into your router. As long as the speakers are not too far apart from each other and the bridge your fine with one. Each speaker is its own bridge. If for some reason they are placed far apart you may need another bridge as a jumper between the speakers or the base bridge [ PHILIP  Dec 11, 2013 ]
Hi, I see you asked if you need more than one bridge for your Sonos components. I have nine Sonos pieces running on one bridge. That's all you should need. If one of your units is far away from the bridge, you may need to get an extender for your wi-fi. No big deal. As you will see, this is one incredible product. The sound is beyond words. Apple should buy this company! Enjoy! [ MARTIN S  Dec 11, 2013 ]
My understanding is that Sonos needs one component hard-wired to your router (Ethernet) in order to create a wireless network for Sonos communications. I think any player (e.g., PLAY:5) or a BRIDGE can make this hard-wired connection. So if you don't want to (or can't) hard-wire a player unit, you can use a BRIDGE instead. The latter is my configuration; my PLAY:5 is not near an Ethernet location, but I was able to connect a BRIDGE to my router. The setup could NOT be easier, including the download of the controller app to Android phone and iPad. The system is brilliant, and I'm planning on buying additional PLAY:x units. Hope that helps -- good luck! [ LOUIS  Dec 11, 2013 ]
