    Sonos Zone Player (S5)

    Overview: The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 is a wireless music system that lets you use your iPhone or iPod touch or the Sonos Controller (CR100) to control and enjoy all the music you want all over your house. The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 creates room-filling, high-performance sound using an integrated five-way speaker system driven by five built-in digital amplifiers. In a multi-room sound system, the first ZonePlayer is connected to your home network, and each subsequent ZonePlayer S5 can be wired or completely wireless.

    Note: The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 works seamlessly with the complete range of Sonos products.

    Wireless Technology: The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 brings great sounding music wirelessly to any room in your house, without a big wiring project. SonosNet 2.0, a proprietary wireless mesh network technology, provides superior wireless range for whole-house coverage, ensures synchronous music playback, and avoids sources of wireless interference. The transmitting range of the ZonePlayer S5's built-in wireless system is approximately 100 feet, depending upon your home's layout.

    Note: Thick walls, microwave ovens, and the presence of other wireless devices can interfere with or block the wireless network signals of the Sonos Digital Music Signal. When interference occurs, you can relocate the ZonePlayer S5, change the wireless channel, or make a wired (Ethernet) connection.

    Multi-Zone Compatibility: You can place a ZonePlayer S5 in each zone where you want to listen to music. The Sonos Digital Music System can accept up to 32 ZonePlayers. With multiple zones, you can play the same song in different rooms, or different songs in different rooms.

    Room-Filling Sound: The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 provides crystal-clear, room-filling sound through various advanced sound technologies. The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 incorporates an all digital architecture design for precise sound reproduction. The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 utilizes a five -driver bass-reflex speaker system individually powered by five dedicated digital amplifiers for room-filling sound. The ZonePlayer S5 contains two tweeters, two mid-range drivers, and on bass driver for accurate tonal balance, deep bass, and crystal clear sound. The ZonePlayer S5 offers adjustable bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls for optimal sound performance.

    • 5 Speakers Powered By 5 Dedicated Digital Amplifiers: The ZonePlayer S5 uses 5 state-of the-art digital amplifiers individually coupled with 5 speakers to deliver superior sound to any room. The wireless music system provides crystal-clear, high-quality sound that rivals much larger, more complicated systems. A subwoofer produces powerful bass while two mid-range drivers and two tweeters fill out the sound.
      • Class-D Amplifiers: state of the art, great sounding amplifiers that are light weight, powerful and very energy efficient in standby and use
      • Tweeters: two tweeters create a crisp and accurate high frequency response
      • Midrange Drivers: two 3.0" dedicated mid-range drivers ensure the faithful reproduction of mid-range frequencies crucial for accurate playback of vocals and instruments
      • Subwoofer: dedicated 3.5" subwoofer driver provides deep, powerful bass you can feel
    • Acoustic Port: The acoustic port on the rear of the unit serves two purposes - it's vital to the sound output of the S5 when in use and it's also a convenient handle when moving it from one room to another.
    • All-Digital Sound Architecture: From the recording studio to your home the music is reproduced as the artist intended. All filter settings, active equalization, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry so there is absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.
    • Adjustable Audio Controls: Optimize sound performance using zone-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual zone or by groups of zones.

The controller communicates with the nearest ZonePlayer through Sonosnet, a secure, peer-to-peer wireless mesh network, allowing you to extend the range of the controller to any room in your house, even outside. Because it communicates with the nearest ZonePlayer, rather than through one distant control point, the system avoids sources of wireless interference. The range of the Sonosnet is 50 to 100 feet, a range similar to that of an 802.11g wireless access point.
    • iPhone or iPod touch: You can also control the Sonos ZonePlayer S5 from your iPhone or iPod touch with a free application from the Apple App Store. You are able to search for songs and stations, choose the music, and control the volume. You can even get a text or a call on your iPhone and the music will keep playing.

    Controls: The ZonePlayer S5 only has a mute button and a volume control, both mounted on the top of the unit. Between the buttons lies a Zone Player LED status indicator, which flashes white when powering up or connecting to the Sonos Digital Music System, and lights solid when powered up and connected to the music system.

    Desktop Controller Software: The supplied setup disc contains the software for the Desktop Controller, which allows you to control the Sonos Digital Music System from your home computer. It includes easy-to-use wizards for setup and music sharing so the music folders on your hard drive can be shared across all Zone Players. You can also add Internet Radio stations and set preferences for online updates. Once the system is set up, all you need to do is choose your music, choose your zone, and press Play. The Desktop Controller is compatible with Windows XP and higher, as well as Macintosh OS X (10.4 and higher) operating systems.

    Versatile Placement: You can position the Sonos ZonePlayer S5 wherever you find the sound most enjoyable. Its compact size and inset handle make it easy to place the ZonePlayer S56 on the kitchen counter, or carry it out to the patio with you. For maximum performance, following these guidelines:

    • For best bass performance, locate the ZonePlayer S5 within 2-feet of a wall.
    • Place the ZonePlayer S5 across the room from where you will be listening.
    • Don't block the acoustic port when in use.
    • Place the ZonePlayer S5 at least 12-inches from a television, computer, or other monitor to avoid the possibility of picture quality interference.
    • The ZonePlayer S5 is not water-resistant; do not leave it outside during a rain store or position it near water.

    Inputs and Outputs Notes:

    • 2-Way Ethernet Port: There are two rear-panel female RJ-45 connectors for plugging in Category 5 Ethernet cables. You can connect a router, computer, or an additional network device, such as a network-attached storage (NAS) device. Specifications: 10/100 Mbps, auto MDI/MDIX.
    • Analog Input: You can connect an external source, such as a portable music player or a CD player, to the unit's rear-panel 3.5mm minijack port. The input jacks automatically detect a device is connected, and the source appears in the system. Music from the external source can be played in any zone. The volume is controlled by the Sonos Digital Music System, however, the playback (pause, music selection, etc.) must be controlled at the source.
    • Headphone Output: The ZonePlayer S5 is equipped with a rear-panel 3.5mm headphone output for connecting a set of headphones. The headphone jack is auto-detecting, so when you plug-in a set of headphones, the ZonePlayer's built-in speakers automatically mute.
    • Power Input: The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 operates off AC houshold current using the supplied AC power adapter and cord. The ZonePlayer S5 is capable of accepting 115/120 Volts AC or 230/240 Volts AC.

    Sonos Controller (CR100)

    Overview: The Sonos CR100 Controller works exclusively with the Sonos Multi-zone Digital Music System, and allows you to control all of your music and all of your zones wirelessly from the palm of your hand.

    Sonosnet: The controller communicates with the nearest Zone player through Sonosnet, a secure, peer-to-peer wireless mesh network, allowing you to extend the range of the controller to any room in your house, even outside. Because it communicates with the nearest Zone Player, rather than through one distant control point, the system avoids sources of wireless interference. The range of the Sonosnet is 50 to 100 feet, a range similar to that of an 802.11g wireless access point.

    Rechargeable Battery: The CR100 is powered by a built-in, high-capacity Lithium Ion battery. Assuming typical usage, a fully charged battery will last over a week.

    Note: The battery is not removable from the controller.

    Display: The controller features a 3.5" (diagonally measured) full color LCD screen, with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels, for viewing zone configurations, playlists, and menus, as well as full color album artwork.

    Controls: The CR100 features the following controls:

    • Volume Controls:
      • Volume: A two-way "rocker" switch for adjusting the selected zone's volume up or down.
      • Mute: To temporarily silence the music in a zone, or if held for 3 seconds, silences all Zone Players.
    • Playback Controls:
      • Play/Pause
      • Skip Forward/Fast Forward
      • Previous/Fast Reverse
    • Navigation:
      • Zones: For selecting a zone to play music in, or view the music selections playing in each room. You can also create or modify zone groups to share the same music across zones.
      • Music: For browsing or selecting music; You can select new music to play, manage music queues, access playlists, and change the default settings for a Zone Player or Controller.
      • Back: For returning to the previous screen in the selected menu (zone or music)
      • Scroll Wheel: An "iPod-inspired" circular touch wheel used to navigate through a displayed list on the Controller screen. You can slide your thumb or finger clockwise to scroll down or counter-clockwise to scroll up through the list.
      • Soft Buttons: Three unmarked buttons below the LCD screen; the functionality of each button changes to reflect the available actions for the currently-displayed controller screen. The action for each button appears on the screen directly above each button.
    • Light Sensor: The controller's built-in light sensor (located on the controller's face above the LCD screen) automatically turns on the button backlights based upon the brightness of the environment.

    Sleep Modes: To save battery power, the controller enters a progressive sleep mode:

    • Light Sleep: The controller will go into a "light" sleep to preserve the battery life when it is unused for a specified period of time. The screen will turn off until motion is detected (by the internal motion sensor) or a button is pressed. You can specify different amounts of time after which the controller will enter the light sleep mode when connected to a power source and when operating in a "wireless" mode.
    • Deep Sleep: The controller will enter a deep sleep when unused for a longer period of time (programmable in the menu). The controller goes through a restart cycle for several seconds when coming out of the deep sleep mode.

    Indicators: During operation, the CR100 controller has several status indicators. The LCD screen indicates the battery charge level and wireless signal strength. An LED on the upper right edge of the controller glows red to indicate low battery, amber while the controller is charging, green when it finishes charging, and goes unlit to indicate the controller is in use and the battery is charged.

    Sonos Zone Bridge (BR100)

    Overview: The Sonos ZoneBridge BR100 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 ZoneBridge BR100 makes setting up your wireless Sonos system fast and easy by simply connecting the ZoneBridge to your router to instantly activate SonosNet (a secure wireless mesh network). All your Sonos ZonePlayers and Controllers will work wirelessly and can be placed anywhere in your home. Although the ZoneBridge doesn't play music like the Sonos ZonePlayer, 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 ZonePlayer.

    Instant Wired/Wireless Setup: The ZoneBridge 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 BR100 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 ZoneBridge, you can easily add more component anytime. If your home has structured (built-in) wiring, you can make a wired connection to additional ZonePlayers or ZoneBridges. If you don't have structured wiring, you can take advantage of Sonos's built-in wireless technology. The ZoneBridge BR100 provides flexibility to place your ZonePlayers in any room of the house and connect them all wirelessly.

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

    Range Expansion: You can stream music wirelessly to a remote location by placing a ZoneBridge in between your ZonePlayer in a remote location and the rest of your Sonos system. You can also improve Controller access to SonosNet by placing the ZoneBridge in areas where wireless coverage needs a boost. The ZoneBridge BR100 is ideal for retrofits, where your ZonePlayers might be in one location instead of being placed throughout your home.

    Desktop Controller Software: Designed with a user interface to accommodate a large screen displays, the supplied Sonos Desktop Controller software for PC and Mac will guide you through both set up and music sharing. It offers all the same functionality as the Sonos Controller, but instead of being in the palm of your hand, it's all on your desktop. The software offers the following features.

    • Easy-to-use wizard for set up and music sharing. Set up music folders on your hard drive so they can be shared across all ZonePlayers.
    • Control of your Sonos Digital Music System from your desktop.
