Enjoy music from your computer and the Internet on any audio system

Play music from your PC and the Internet with the Sonos® CONNECT. This tiny player works with almost any existing audio system — hook it up to a receiver or powered speaker system in any room of your home. The CONNECT uses your existing Wi-Fi® network to connect to the Internet. Or, you can connect it to your network router, and Sonos will create its own dedicated wireless network for even better performance. If your router is in another room, pick up the optional Sonos BOOST to make this connection. Either way, you'll be ready to start enjoying music within minutes.

Small player fits almost anywhere

The CONNECT's footprint is remarkably compact — less than 5-1/2" square. Analog and digital audio outputs make it compatible with just about any audio/video receiver or shelf system.

Sonos controllers

You probably already own a Sonos controller

You can use an iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad®, or Android™ phone to control any and all Sonos players. A free download turns your smartphone and tablet into a full-fledged Sonos controller. Easily navigate and search through playlists and tracks stored on your computer, or select an Internet radio station. Create customized playlists on the fly for individual rooms or for playback over your entire Sonos system. You can also mute or adjust the volume of each of your players.

Rhapsody®, Pandora® Internet radio, SiriusXM, and more at your fingertips

The Sonos system works seamlessly with a host of Internet-based digital music services, including Rhapsody, Pandora, Spotify, Napster®, and SiriusXM Internet Radio. Rhapsody offers instant access to millions of songs and ad-free radio stations through your Sonos Controller. SiriusXM Internet Radio gives you access to over 80 channels of programming. Every Sonos system includes free 30-day trials of these two services, so you can start listening the moment you take it out of the box. Pandora creates customized Internet radio streams just for you — all you have to do is enter the name of your favorite song or artist. And because Sonos connects directly to the Internet for all of these music services, you don't even have to turn on your PC.

Play music stored on your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®

Sonos now gives you convenient wireless access to music and podcasts stored in the Music app of iOS devices, for playback throughout your entire Sonos system. This function works on devices running iOS6 or later (see below for full list of compatible Apple devices). The system even lets you connect multiple Apple players at once. For instance, you can queue up songs from your iPhone to play in the kitchen while you cook, and your spouse can stream a podcast in the den at the same time.

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a love/hate relationship with technology. Sonos Connect definitely falls in the LOVE category. It was so easy to set up and works perfectly. I can now sit outside and control the music & volume w/my iPhone or laptop.

Pros: easy to set up convenient cool

Cons: none

Works great

Written By Thor, Tennessee on Tuesday, October 20, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this item to connect my old school stereo receiver to wireless speakers. I also purchased the Sonos Play3. The setup was easy and it works as expected. It is a little pricy, but I now can play my old 33 RPM records and have the music wirelessly streamed to other rooms in the house.

Pros: Easy setup.

Cons: Price. Only works with Sonos wireless speakers.

The only trouble free way to go

Written By AlexF, California on Thursday, October 08, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was hesitant to spend this amount of money for a hardware piece that is worth a quarter of that. But after trying Toslink out of Roku, the problem is running the software that works your way. I tried Plex and Emby and they were flat out refusing to read some of the ID tags or just skipped some rips all together. Clients were flaky as well. Getting Sonos was me giving up on doing things on a tight budget. I can tell you that the money is in the software here. It works, it is intuitive, it can be run on anything hardware wise. Do I wish Sonos supported high resolution files - yes. But with a mid level DAC, the WAV rips sound as close to great as possible and my life is finally simple. I can store CD's in the garage and join the 21st century while getting instant access to all my music.

Pros: Simple, reliable

Cons: Cost

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great product which is amazingly simple to set-up, use and customize. The devise itself is very stylish with a low profile so it blends in with the decor nicely. It connects easily to my home theater set-up and has that always on readiness you are looking for.

The mobile and desktop apps are well designed and easy to use.

Pros: Always on and very customizable

Cons: Do not seem to be able to shuffle within a playlist

This is an amazing piece of equipment. Set up is fairly straight forward, but the functioning is even better. I wish I had purchased this long ago. After using bluetooth with all the drops and interference the Sonos is a dream.

Simple setup, flawless integration onto my home network. Great app. Absolutely no issues.

Pros: Was struggling with connectivity issues with AirPlay. This solved all my problems Great integration with Deezer Elite! FLAC for $10/mo. is awesome!

Cons: Gets a little warm.

Performs as advertised.

Written By DCF, Michigan on Saturday, August 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Connect performs very well indeed, that is once you get it setup. Sonos's onwers manual is virtually non-existent. However, their tech help by phone was very helpful and patient. So the 4 rating was only because the poor set up instructions. Crutchfield gets 5 Stars as always, quick, efficient and accurate.

Pros: Performs as advertised.

Cons: Instructions leave everything to be desired.

Awesome Product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What a great product Sonos makes. This is just part of their solution but integrates seamlessly into the Sonos environment. I purchased a Play:3 before this Connect just to test it out - I immediately purchased the Connect to hook up to my existing entertainment system. Installation is a breeze. Crutchfield shipped extremely quick and had this in 2 business days.

Pros: Awesome solution - well worth the price.

Cons: None.

Not designed for stereo to speaker

Written By TomK, Maryland on Friday, July 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great product if you want to have music from the various sources like Pandora, etc. throughout your house. It is not really for sending music from you receiver attached devices like a CD player to the remote speakers. It required a level of complexity it was not simply playing a CD.

Pros: Quality product, seems well made, works well for designed purpose

Cons: Not really for sending music from a receiver to remote speakers

Great product that's easy to set up and use. I have a number of PLAY series, bu this is my first CONNECT. I use it to drive my back yard speakers through an Onkyo amp. The A set is in the eaves of the house and the B set is by the outdoor kitchen. I even buried a passive sub with the second set and the sound is great!

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Price

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had to replace a Whole house sound system Amplifier/controller which died after four years!!! Replacement meant buying a new unit and paying a dealer to install and program it. The Sonos product was able to replace the whole system for a few dollars more for the hardware. The programming and set up were a snap. Sonos leads you thru the set up. I was able to connect the Music Server to the Sonos connect and the Home Theater receiver/Amp video receiver to the Sonos connect Amp. Between the music service apps, music on our computers, Music server, Smart TV, Satellite TV and the Home Theater receiver/Amp we have more music choices that ever.

Pros: Easy to install and program. Lots of music choices.

Cons: If any, Cost.

Excellent product

Written By RickW, Louisiana on Sunday, April 05, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've been using the Sonos Connect for about a week and have been extremely impressed. I hooked it up to the digital audio converter that's connected to my amplifier, both of which are in another room about 50-75 feet away from my computer. The signal is very strong and stable, much moreso than for the NAD product that I'd previously tried using in the same arrangement. Also, the software setup was very easy, taking about a minute or two.

Pros: Easy setup Strong, stable signal

Cons: None thus far

Excellent Product

Written By RobertC, Michigan on Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been more than pleased with the Sonos Connect. My intended use of the Sonos Connect was to stream music to a heritage high end (McIntosh) stereo system. My first concern was sound quality for streaming music, and my second was the flexibility of using my laptop and Iphone as remotes. My expectations were exceeded in terms of the quality of the sound. It is extremely lifelike, and a huge improvement over simply having a direct connection from the laptop or phone to the pre amp. I am using the new Tidal streaming service primarily and it seems to be a perfect match with the Sonos quality, since it streams at a much higher rate than ordinary music services. At least as good as CD quality to my ears. I should add that I had some concern as to whether the built in DAC in the Sonos was of sufficient quality. My initial impression is a resounding yes. The sound on my system is very crisp and lifelike and does not display any murkiness as noted in another review. Finally I should add that I do not use the Sonos speakers in different rooms, but rather use my heritage system in my main listening room and a Soundcast Outcast speaker as the remote portable speaker, which is fed through a line out in the Macintosh pre amp to its I Cast wireless transmitter.

Pros: Quality of the sound. Perfect companion for high quality streaming service such as Tidal. The remote functions of Sonos are great as well.

Cons: None that I can see.

SONOS Connect

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I LOVE SONOS! We started with a Play 5 and have added several other units. Now I'm using the Connect to tie in to some built-in speakers. The only downside is I keep spending more and more $$$ because I want more SONOS.

Pros: Easy setup and operation, very stable network, excellent sound

Cons: I keep buying more SONOS


Written By Mark, Virginia on Sunday, February 22, 2015

Best music streaming device ever. Must have. Also pay for a subscription to Spotify with the Sonos.

Pros: All the must in the word

Cons: No stand alone controller. Must have a pc/tablet, or a smart device to operate.

great product

Written By Jon, California on Sunday, February 15, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product was perfect for my needs. In fact, I liked the first so much, I bought another so that I could separately control certain zones in my house. I have an eight zone amp with wired connections to speakers in various zones in my house.

I have a very long house, so I need a wireless router and wireless access point to provide full coverage. I had some issues controlling the Sonos Connect from the access point -- the Connect would periodically just "disappear" from the network. Sonos tech support was very patient (escalated to the highest level tech), but ultimately was unable to solve my issue.

Subsequently, after swapping the location of my router and access point, the system is now stable. Now the Connect joins the network via the access point and the dhcp router is at the far end of the house. I think this works because the Connect must now continually renew its IP lease via the access point to the router. In my prior configuration, I think the Connect got "lazy," since it was connected directly to the dhcp router, at which point the access point could no longer find it ... as I told Sonos tech support, that's just my theory, but it works.

Pros: Easy to configure in simple network situation. Adding additional Connects is a breeze. Good iPad and Android app, and desktop program.

Cons: Installing in complex network configuration can be challenging. App/desktop program does not accurately index music on your NAS devices. Some of my albums/songs are not properly found by artist/composer, or genera. I have to browse my Music Library to find the applicable folder. That works if I remember I have the album, otherwise I have no easy way to find it from the app/desktop program.

I bought a Sonos BOOST and Sonos COnnect last week. We got it all connected this weekend and I am amazed at how easy the setup was. It works as explained and does just what I want it to. I am now streaming my iTunes, Pandora, and I Heart Radio thru our component stereo speakers. I love the sound quality and the flexibility and ease of use. The Sonos equipment is a wonderful investment in our existing stereo equipment and has given new life to our 40+ year old speakers which are still going strong and playing wonderful sound.

Sonos Connect

Written By MarcC, Georgia on Tuesday, January 13, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am an old school audiophile with a Harmon Kardon stereo receiver, JBL bookshelf speakers, and a turntable. I am slowly entering the 21st century having put my CD collection on my IPOD and playing it through my 'stereo system'. I am a SiriusXM radio subscriber and was looking for a way to listen to SiriusXM and internet radio on my stereo. Sonos Connect is it. Connect provides the SiriusXM app connection as well as Pandora and Spotify, as well as a host of other subscription services, too many to mention. In addtion, there are lots of free internet radio stations that can also be played. Music, talk, politics, etc., are all available. There are really more that I have time to listen to but I am sure I will try most of them over time. Set up was pretty easy, not much in the way of printed instructions but the web instructions were pretty good. I set up the control app on my IPAD, which I use for control, and also on my desktop computer where my music collection is stored. I had some trouble adding the links for SiriusXM, Spotify, and Pandora from my IPAD and having them show up as available. I had to add them using the desktop and then the links showed up on the IPAD, not sure why exactly, but it worked that way. Overall, I am very pleased with Connect and have already been considering adding another Sonos speaker or two, but haven't decided yet. I would recommend it highly.

Pros: Pretty simple setup. Kinda pricey, but a better solution with more options that buying a new receiver.

Cons: Very limited printed install instructions.

Simplicity personified!!

Written By Arnie, Queens, New York on Monday, January 12, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A wonderful product that allows you to utilize your own power and speakers.

Pros: Smooth and straight forward set up.

Cons: A bit pricey for what it accomplishes. Be patient with the time the set up requires - at times no feedback as to set up progress.This is really a nit pic. If you have several Sonos zones in use and an existing audio set up (powered speakers, a sub and an equalizer in my case), it is a no brainer to proceed with this purchase. Enjoy !!

Sounds Great with a Vintage BK Power Amp

We purchased a couple of Play:1s and a Play:5 for the house but wanted something to provide music in a large carpeted great room. Already had some nice Klipsch speakers and a BK ST-202 power amp, so we purchased the Sonos connect to finish the package. Sound quality is great and the Connect output married nicely to the amp.

Pros: Compatible with a vintage power amp Sonos flexibility and convenience Excellent sound quality

Goodbye Crestron Hello Sonos

Written By Rich, New York on Wednesday, December 31, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Wow, what a great product. replaced an 8 zone Crestron whole house audio system with 8 - Connect boxes and two multi-zone amplifiers. It couldn't have been easier to set up. Let me say that again, it couldn't have been easier to set up. I have it on a wired network connection and the apps work great on computers, iPads and iPhones. We mostly use internet radio, Pandora and our music library. We do have a multidisk CD changer as a auxiliary input just in case. I'm so glad I made the switch.

Pros: Ease of set up Friendly interface variety of sources good fidelity

Cons: it would be nice if they made a single box with say 4 zones at a reduced price.

Great product - lousy instructions

Written By Dag, Tennessee on Sunday, December 28, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Once you get this thing set up, it works like a dream. If you can't figure out how to do it on your own, however, you're out of luck. The instructions are minimal and vague, even to the point of being unclear as to whether or not you hook up at "output" or "input" on the back of the speaker. Also, it is inexcusable that it only comes in white. If only one color, it should be black. That said, however, it works wonderfully well once you get it hooked up.

Pros: Quality of sound. Transmits well. No drops in quality.

Cons: Vague instructions. Ugly white box.

Pros: Great access to multiple music sources. Very easy to use with iPad and iPhone.

Cons: None so far...except they are a bit pricey to set up several different stations.

Well designed but the high-res music clientele somewhat ignored

Written By HemiSam, TEXAS on Friday, December 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It is a well thought out product, for the most part. Setup was easy, although they're marketing higher resolution streaming services recently as they recognize this is a growing market. Their forum is lit up with customer comments about wanting the flexibility to play higher resolution files than just mp3 quality. So they signed on Deezer Elite, which is the only reason I finally got comfortable buying the Connect. It proved difficult to set up Deezer and get it to work on the Sonos app because nowhere in the instructions did it indicate you needed to do that on your laptop vs my iPad mini or my iPhone...figured it out on my own after a while.

It's white or white...sticks out pretty good in my living room. Black would be a nice option, like on the Sonos player I purchased at the same time.

I use my Connect to pump digital files to my external DAC (digital to analog converter) and send that analog signal to an amplifier that powers good quality headphones. The Deezer Elite provides 16bit/44Hz files (think CD's ripped at their actual file size/resolution...not a compressed format where details are lost) to the Connect...what I had been waiting for. Beats is 320kbps and while that's OK, it's not great with higher quality equipment.

Anyhoo...I'm glad I purchased the Connect but I think Sonos is slow to respond to a market that is going, and when there is a flood of competition on their doorstep. The Deezer Elite option is only reason I bought a Sonos.

Pros: wireless, reliable connection, fairly user friendly graphical user interface (GUI)

Cons: few higher quality streaming options and late to that game, white or white, somewhat pricey for what you get

5 rooms of in ceiling speakers, a notebook, IPAD and Android phone with playlists, first dinner party coming up. Not a clue how to get it all together. Enter Crutchfield. Two days later we have a Niles amplifier and a Sonos Connect. End result, 4 rooms of music and music out on the patio... The SONOS Connect is absolutely great and very easy to set up

Pros: Love controlling my music from my IPAD, Notebook or Android phone. The SONOS apps lead you through the initial connection and the online help and intuitive app makes it easy to import from ITUNEs. I see some SONOS wireless speakers in our future for the master bedroom and bath. Could not be happier!

Cons: A bit expensive but I quickly got beyond that once I had my music playing in 5 areas!

I hesitated before buying the sonos system because of concerns about sound quality. Yes, the bitrate is capped, but if you have good source material, it sounds just as good as a CD. I have the Connect and play it through my stereo and for the most part, it rocks. And all the internet radio is awesome! The app controller is great, very easy to use and works with little to no delay. I am just really impressed overall with Sonos, it has done better then I ever expected. I'm now listening to my music every night instead of watching tv. and I love it.

Pros: Simple setup, ease of use, works as advertised

Sonos Connect, Great Product

Written By GS, Charlotte,NC on Tuesday, July 08, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great product, the Sonos connect, connects your home stereo to the Sonos speakers. it will also connect the Sonos music source to your home stereo. So things like Pandora, on line radio stations and music on your computer can be played on your stereo. I can also use my turntable and CD and Cassett players and all Speakers in the house can now play the same music or have different speakers playing different things. If you have a radio station you like it can be played over the Sonos network, with all the clarity that you get with digital source as apposed to over the air transmissions. The connection was very easy and it is simple to operate. This is the way the other systems should operate, under a very open platform. Now I can use a real to real tape deck or any other input to get music in to deliver it to all speakers in the house or outside.

Pros: Easy to install, easy to use. Music that is coming from any source or another input sounds good, and no lag time from Sonos speakers to speakers connected to the main stereo.

Cons: Software was a little tough to work around, but one call to tech support with Sonos they were able to get me going in about 3 min. Tech support is great and they will help anytime you need it.

This is the third Sonos CONNECT that I have purchased over the past three years. That in and of itself should be enough of a review. I highly recommend all of the SONOS products. I started at Christmas of 2011 with a SONOS Connect, SONOS Bridge and a SONOS Controller. I used the Connect as an input for my home office component stereo system. I live on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, and radio reception is marginal. I used Terk amplified antennas to help, but varying atmospheric conditions made reception spotty. We live in an area of rolling hills. Plus frankly, the local over the air radio stations are going down hill and not playing my preferred music much any more. I bought these to stream Pandora and other services such as iHeart Radio, and stream from my computer and iPhone.

This lead to a second CONNECT and a PLAY:5 "Radio" for the master bedroom and kitchen, respectfully. The second Connect is used with a home theatre amp in the master bedroom, and the radio in the kitchen gets more play than any other. Their PLAY:5 is awesome - Bose cannot compare. Then I bought a second PLAY:5 for my real office (with a free bridge) last Christmas along with a PLAY 3 as a "roamer" for washing the cars, out on the deck/patio, and when in the shower. I just got the third CONNECT for the surround sound in the sunroom. The next purchase will be the SONOS sound bar and sub to replace the Polk Audio ones in the family room. The SONOS uses your iPhone or Android phone to control.

Pros: Extremely easy to set up, and with the latest version of the Controller App, you can easily control several different SONOS System Networks (Home and Office, etc). That used to be difficult, but they listened to their customers and corrected that. Amazingly great sound from their "radios" PLAY:5 and PLAY:3. I do not have a PLAY:1 so I cannot honestly comment on that one.

Cons: A little pricey, and forget about discounts. Like Apple products. But I have to say they are worth every penny. I would have replaced my Polk Sound Bar for my LED TV, as its proprietary remote sucks and it will not integrate with my Samsung TV, but the SONOS Sound Bar and Sub are $1398 and the Polk unit does work and sounds good, so it is hard to justify. $999 for the pair and I would jump...

Nothing really goes as planned on a big project, but the Sonos system worked like a champ. So easy to set up and navigate.

Pros: Clean and easy setup.

Cons: Little expensive, once you plug it in and you use it. It was worth it.

Easy setup, great sound in 3 different zones. Sonos just works and the new app is great too. Worth every penny.

Pros: Easy setup, great sound, nice new app

Cons: price, but it's worth it.

This Sonos Connect is the bomb! It streams music stations from all over the world in about every and any language you can think of. I never use the tuner off of my receiver. And the music off my I-pad sounds great. Very easy to install and it all runs off of a free App. Wish I would have bought this along time ago.

Pros: Easy to install and is about the size of half abox of Kleenex.

Cons: None

Sonos Connect

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sonos system and hardware are second to none. That said their software is decidedly anti-Microsoft. Their Windows desktop controller software is looking dated. They have no Windows 8 support. Absolutely nothing for RT or Winphone. The third part app is ok for Winphone but the RT app is unusable.

So if you are a Windows user prepare to be a little frustrated. Sonos recently had a survey for Windows users to tell them what we would want in a controller and they have new Mac and Android controllers scheduled. Lets hope they follow up with a new Windows app.

I swore I wasn't going to get another Sonos product until they had full Windows support. I was using a laptop in the basement in order to wireless send music to my stereo but alas it had XP. With XP support gone away I didnt want a potentially unsecure computer on my network

Pros: Versatility Internet music Ability to access NAS

Cons: Lack of Windows support

Simple. Easy setup as advertised. I have a network attached storage unit and was concerned if the Sonos unit would work with it. It easily accessed and indexed all of my music. I used a wired LAN connection so I didn't need the bridge unit. I have not tried the internet radio yet.

Pros: Easy set up.

Cons: Price but I suppose simplicity has its price. Limited inputs.

Added my second Sonos Connect unit in my house. I will definitely be adding a third. A great investment for music throughout the house.

The Sonos connect brings all of my music together. I have it connected to my whole house audio system. This is a perfect way to listen my music. Rock solid device!

DJ in tha house

Hooked the connect to my mixer and now it's an "Official House Party". It's cool for people thru out the house to hear my mixes (even on the patio) without setting up the PA and running cables everywhere. Nice!

Pros: Once again easy set up and use!

Cons: I thought it was a little expensive, but once set up and working, I'm glad I made the purchase. Maybe not a con after all.

The Sonos does exactly what it is supposed to do and it is not hard to set up and produces the best FM sound from anywhere you want it.
